Review Policy

Updated: July 22, 2017

I’ve been a lifelong lover of books and often wonder if that’s the reason I was a Literature major. In the past, I have had the pleasure of reviewing ARC’s from the publisher and would love to continue to do so. Discovering new authors and becoming reacquainted with familiar ones is always a joy. Having said that if you would like for me to review a book, please fill out the contact form below. But before doing so please review the following information.

Book Format: I prefer physical books to eBooks. I understand eBooks are the preferred method; however, I just love holding a book in my hand and physically turning pages. So, if at all possible it would be great if I could be provided a physical book but eBooks aren’t deal breakers.

I will do my best to get it read and reviewed within 2-3 weeks of receiving it. Once the review is posted here at The Broken Spine, on Goodreads, and Amazon I will send you an email notification with a link to the reviews.

My reviews will include the following:

  • The Deets (title, author, publisher, number of pages, etc.)
  • What Popped
  • What Flopped
  • My Thoughts
  • Quote(s) that stood out to me (if any)

All of the reviews you read here on The Broken Spine will contain 1 of 2 Disclaimers are my own unbiased opinion and as a result, I can not guarantee a completely positive review. My apologies in advance.

Disclaimer for books purchased or given as gifts:

I purchased (or was given) Name of Book on ______ date (that is if I can remember). This review reflects my unbiased opinion and as a result I am not able to promise a wholly positive review. My apologies in advance.

ARC’s will contain the following disclaimer: 

I received this ARC from (Netgalley, publisher, author) for free in return for providing my honest and unbiased review.

I love to read most genres, however, there are some that I will NOT read. Below is a Top 5 list of the genres I will and will not read, so please keep this in mind when requesting a review.
