Contact&Review Policy

If you’re looking to recommend books, talk books, or submit a book for review: this is the place!

For authors submitting books for review:

**To authors who have sent me books over the last (maybe?) 6 months to a year: I have lost complete access to the email address I was using to correspond due to a virus. This includes all of the content, correspondences, emails, and ebooks that you may have sent me. I promise I have not been slacking, I just have no idea how to get this information (including names and emails) back. The email attached to this contact form is new and secure, so please feel free to reach out again. I’m sorry for the inconvenience this has caused.**

What I’ll read:

I am a Young Adult reader and am open to any genre in that category. Outside of YA, I’m willing to review sci-fi, fantasy, and most fictional adult and contemporary novels. Erotica or books high in graphic sexual content will not be accepted (think 50 Shades).

I prefer physical copies (I just get through them faster, plus I can show them off on Instagram), but I am also accepting ebooks. I do own a Kindle so .mobi files are preferred.

Where I review:

In exchange for your book, I will provide a complete and honest review here on my blog and on Goodreads. By request, I will also provide reviews on Amazon starting March of 2017.

Review Policy and Rating System:

By providing me a copy of your book, I promise to in turn provide an honest review. This means that if I do not enjoy your book or find it problematic in anyway, I will express that in my review. In no way will I provide a dishonest review in exchange for a book or be paid to provide a dishonest review. I base a great deal of my personal book choices off of the reviews of others, so I review to inform future buyers/readers. For this reason, I will always be honest, so expect nothing less.

0 Stars: Did not finish
1 Star: I did not like this book and would not recommend it.
2 Stars: There’s potential in this book but it was not executed properly.
3 Stars: This book is not my cup of tea but wasn’t bad. I might recommend it in certain situations.
4 Stars: This was a good book. I enjoyed reading it but had its flaws or inconsistencies.
5 Stars: This book was amazing and I would highly recommend it. I really enjoyed reading it.
All The Stars: A new favorite and one that I will probably recommend to everyone for the rest of my life.

If you prefer not to use this form, you can email me at: fictionalashley@gmail.com

  1. Hi there! My name is Aya, and I am a fellow book blogger. I was wondering if you’d be interested in participating in a small project that I am doing. I wanted to ask a bunch of bloggers (49, to be exact :p), to give me one of their favorite book quotes. I’m going to compile them all in one post and then post it on my blog on the 22nd of this month. It’d be fantastic if you would be a part of this. Just let me know by this Sunday, please, so that I have plenty of time to compile and/or ask someone else. Thank you!
    P.S. You are the 17th one to be asked!

    1. I wasn’t sure where to give this to you so I’ll put it here. This is probably may favorite quote, although Jane Eyre in general is just full of all of my favorites.

      “I have little left in myself — I must have you. The world may laugh — may call me absurd, selfish — but it does not signify. My very soul demands you: it will be satisfied, or it will take deadly vengeance on its frame.” -Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre
