WE ARE CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING BOOK REVIEW REQUESTS!!! WE HAVE A MAJOR BACKLOG AND WILL BE USING THE TIME TO CATCH UP. IF YOU HAVE A SCHEDULED BOOK REVIEW, PLEASE BE PATIENT. ALL BOOKS WILL BE REVIEWED IN TIME.
If a review is requested, we will provide an answer within 48 hours. We are open to any genre. Usually, we try to schedule and read 5-10 books a month either for review or because it fell onto our to-be-read list (which is rather large and constantly growing). Please adhere to the rules below before contacting us for a review:
- We are currently accepting, but on a very limited basis.
- We will only accept paperbacks from authors.
- Current tour companies we review from on a regular basis are Audiobookworm Promotions and Reedsy Discovery – The following formats are accepted from these affiliations: AUDIOBOOK, MOBI, EPUB, PDF
- If we accept a book for review, we are not obligated to leave a positive review. Please see our disclosure policy below for more details.
- If we accept a book for review, we do not ask for compensation. Although the review is FREE, if you’d like to tip your reviewer, a donation button is available on the left hand side of the site page for your convenience.
- The genres that we generally enjoy reading the most are: crime fiction, fantasy/science fiction, mystery/suspense, thriller/horror, paranormal, chick-lit, literary fiction and historical romance. If you do not see the genre that you are looking for, just ask and we would be happy to consider it. We are a very open-minded business/blog and we absolutely enjoy reading a good book that is written well.
- Please know that we will ask for a three month time period to review your book, if requested. We work full-time jobs as well as Turning Another Page. That keeps us PLENTY busy; therefore, please be courteous and allow us to have some time to finish the book and effectively construct an honest review for you. If three months is insufficient, we will continually be in contact to check in with you regarding your scheduled review date.

Our system takes into consideration the following: content, grammatical context, development of characters, creativity and originality, punctuation, spelling, credibility and pace. Effective January 1, 2016, any reviews that are written after this date are professional and do not hold any personal interest or opinionated views. Please see the star ratings below for more information.
5 Star rating given to books that are EXCELLENT. This means, hands down… We will always recommend the story. These reviews tend to be potentially longer and more insightful than any other review rating because the content passed all criteria mentioned above, unless it is a short story.
4 Star rating given to books that reflect minor spelling and grammatical inconsistencies. This means that we are still likely to recommend the story; however, it may contain suggestions and/or comments regarding better practices.
3 Star rating given to books that reflect minor spelling and contextual inconsistencies. This means that we will still recommend the story. The review may not be too lengthy and will contain suggestions and/or comments regarding better practices.
2 Star rating given to books that reflect major spelling, grammatical and/or contextual inconsistencies. We typically do not recommend the story because bloggers and readers that look at our recommendations understand our criteria. These reviews will more than likely contain suggestions and/or comments regarding better practices.
1 Star rating given to books that fail all or most of our criteria all together. We do not recommend these, nor do we promote them. These are very few and far between. With all of the criteria that we factor into the review (which can be viewed above), our suggestion to the author would most definitely be to reevaluate their story.
