Review Policy

You can browse my reviews here. My goal for this blog is to provide honest opinions in each book that I review, while being respectful at the same time.  It is not my desire or intention to make others feel bad because of my reviews, even in the books or some scenes that I do not like. All of my reviews posted here are subjective and may not reflect the opinion of my readers.

Please note that I will not respond to any review request sent directly via email. I will only respond to request being made via my contact request form here.

Do you review books for free?

All reviews are completely free and I only accept books written in English. However, please do not contact me if you write about any of the following:

  • pedophilia
  • rape for arousal
  • incest
  • bestiality
  • necrophilia
  • urine play
  • educational books

Also, I prefer to read ALL books in the series, unless it’s standalone. (depends in circumstances as well)

How long will it take you to read my book?

I do not guarantee for a quick review.  I’m a mood reader, meaning, I read based on what appeals to me as of the moment and not based on schedule. So I can’t promise for a review in a given time frame.  But for ARCs, I try to read and review before release day or the very least release week. That said, the review request should be made atleast 2 weeks in advance. If you need something specific, then please include that in your review request.

What formats do you accept?

I own a kindle, so MOBI files would be my preference. I also accept ARC paper and hardbacks. To invite me to an Edelweiss or Netgalley galley, please use [email protected] If you are mailing me a review copy, please send me an email and I will send you my mailing address.

What will be included in your review post?

In my review post, you can expect the cover, the book sypnosis (taken from either goodreads or amazon, but mostly goodreads), purchased links (if available), author information (if you send it to me), my rating (please take note that I can’t guarantee a review, unless I love the story or if really affects me) and teasers (if you send them to me).

What are the reasons why my book won’t be reviewed?

Blushing Geek is a one-woman blog. I am working a regular 8-hour job a day with a dog and family to take care of. Publishing a book review takes a lot of time to write with graphics and then cross promote them on my social media accounts and on Amazon. So if I don’t enjoy it, then it doesn’t make sense for me to write it all up, but rest assured I can post a one or two sentences review on Goodreads.

For my rating system, you can read it here.

Do you accept blog tours & promo posts?

Absolutely! But I only post promotional content for books that I genuinely liked or think sounds good. I  will not publish promotional posts in lieu of a review when I do not like a book. Blushing Geek is a place of honesty and posting promotional contents for books that I did not like or have any connection at all will contradict to those goals. Thank you for understanding.

Please note for blog tours and promo posts, send them atleast 2 weeks in advance so I have time to delegate them to my posting schedule.

Do you also open for giveaways?

If I review your book and like it, I would absolutely love to offer a copy (ebook or paperback) to my readers! However, the sending of a copy to the prize winner should be your responsibility. I have readers outside the Philippines, so giveaways that are open internationally are welcome, but are not necessary (it’s expensive, I understand).

And lastly, I reserve the right not to post a review. In that event, I will notify the author or the publisher via email as to why I am not writing a review.
