Review Requests

Dear Authors & Publishers,

Ravenous for Reads is currently accepting review requests for both books and products that pair well with a literature centered life. Prior to sending a request for review, please be sure to read this page and its policies. Time is a finite resource that we highly value and we wouldn’t want it to be wasted. We accept works that have been traditionally published, self-published, and from Indie authors.

Preferred genres:

*We consider Young Adult and Adult Fiction*

YA + Adult Science Fiction | Any kind of LGBTQ |  YA + Adult Fantasy | Mystery | Thriller | Poetry + essays + Science | YA + Adult Realistic Fiction 

A  few Fantasy & Science Fiction sub-genres we’d love to see:

Urban | Steampunk | Magical Realism | Fables + Mythic + Folklore | Cyberpunk | Hard & Soft SF | Graphic Novels + Manga | Westerns

Genres we are NOT accepting:

*We do not consider books focused on current hot political issues* 

Erotica | Romance | Elementary or Middle grade fiction

Although we thoroughly enjoy reading, sometimes a book is not for us. If this happens to be the case, we will let you know as soon as possible.

What you should include in your request:

  1. Book title, genre, length, and release date
  2. The summary + cover photo (if possible)
  3. Formats available (Pdf, epub, mobi, paperback)
  4. Why the book is a good fit for Ravenous for Reads and vice versa?
  5. Review deadline
  6. Author details + links to social media

3/5 ★★★☆☆: The book was…okay.

2/5 ★★☆☆☆: Not something that really worked for me.

1/5 ★☆☆☆☆: We struggled with the entire book.

0/5 ☆☆☆☆☆: We couldn’t finish.

In addition to reviews, we are open to:

  1. Author interviews – Generally, we will only consider interviewing authors we’re familiar with or ones we have read and reviewed. 
  2. Exclusive cover reveals + promo blitzes – As a rule, we will only accept requests from authors we know or are a book we’re excited for. 
  3. Blog Blitz
  4. Blog tours
  5. Guest blogging – We want to hear from other book bloggers and collaborate with them. This is, after all, a community. Don’t hesitate to contact us if interest in guest blogging. It’s a great way to get exposure and drive traffic to your site.

Our reviewing approach:

  • Reviews on Ravenous for Reads are a collection of honest opinions.
  • We review with respect and expect respect for our reviews.  
  •  If you are not okay with the idea or possibility of a negative review or critique being written, Ravenous for Reads might not be the best fit for you. By sending a review request, you acknowledge this. 
  • We respond to the requests we wish to accept, though sometimes we will refer authors to other bloggers we feel might be a better fit. If you do not hear from us after 14 days, that means we are unable to accept your request at this time.
  • Our reviews will also be posted on BlogLovin’, Goodreads, Amazon, Instagram, Tumblr, and Twitter. All of these reviews will be linked back to our posted review at Ravenous for Reads.
