Review Policy

If you are interested in collaborating with jasmine’s reading blog, please review my site, read the rest of my review policy, and consider if your product(s) are a good fit.

UPDATE: As of January 25th, 2019, I am ONLY considering romance novels for reviews.

It is a pleasure to review books submitted to me by authors and publishers. I am happy to read or review anything of Young Adult and New Adult genres (particularly fantasy, contemporary,  mystery and romance). Reviews are 100% genuine and all opinions are my own. Submissions are not guaranteed positive reviews and I reserve to the right to refuse any requests.

I prefer physical copies of books, but am willing to accept digital formats.

Everyone has their own unique reviewing style. What sets me a part from other reviewers? I strive to be more thoughtful and honest. I believe my work in librarianship, including professionally reviewing young adult literature for a book review magazine, have taught me to interpret, analyze, and critique books more objectively and with an open mind, taking into consideration both my personal views and the views of others who may appreciate a particular literary work more than I do.

All requests are negotiable, so please contact me to further discuss timelines and other details if necessary.

I do my best to respond to requests as soon as possible.

My Rating System

⭐ = I didn’t like it / I’m surprised I finished it / I won’t read the rest of this series.

⭐⭐ = It was ok / Could’ve been better/ I might read the next book.

⭐⭐⭐ = I like it / This was pretty good / I’ll read the next book.

⭐⭐⭐⭐ = I really liked this / I’m so glad I read this / I can’t wait for the next one.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ = I loved it. / I probably cried / Is the next installment available yet?

I do my best to keep reviews spoiler-free but will always provide spoiler warnings as needed. Reviews for books that are a continuation in a series (anything after the first installment) may contain information that happened in the previous book.
