Book review schedule

This book review schedule provides an up to date list of book reviews that I am currently working on as well as a list of book review spots that I have open. I open 1-2 spots a month (depending on how busy I am) to requests as I also receive books from publishers and via Netgalley each month.

As mentioned in my book review information page I offer two types of reviews; a full-length review and a mini-review. The shorter the review the less time it takes for me to complete so if you want a review done quickly and don’t mind a less detailed review then that might be the best choice for you. You can read more about the reviews I offer and see examples here.

Current Schedule

This schedule only ever lists three months; the current month and three months in advance. I do not save request spots in advance so if you have a new book out please do not ask me to. The best thing to do is follow me on Twitter where I will announce when a new spot is open.

At the start of each month when a new spot opens I wait a week before closing requests. If there are no requests (or none are approved) the spot will remain open until I receive a request I am happy to accept.

Special Promotions

As we head into the later part of the year I’m starting to plan my blog content (read more about it here). If I have specific content planned for that month I’ll pop a ‘special promotion’ notice up with details about what I’m working on that month. For example, in December I’ll be looking to review and promote holiday and winter-themed books. A special promotion doesn’t necessarily mean I’ll only be accepting review requests from books fitting that criteria so please apply even if your book doesn’t meet them!

Special promotions also offer a review and/or a promotion opportunity for books that fit those criteria even if my review slots are full that month. A promotion opportunity will be me featuring your book in a blog post which will most likely be a list (i.e. 5 great holiday fantasy books!) or a gift guide (i.e. the best gifts for bookworms this Christmas!). If I can fit you in for a review I will but I can’t promise that, it depends on how busy I am that month.

Request a review

If you are interested in getting your book reviewed please take the time to read through my information about book reviews and also my book review policy. The second one is a bit dull but it ensures that we’re both on the same page and everyone knows what’s happening.

Once you’ve done that please fill out the form below. Remember that submitting this form is only a request for a review and does not guarantee you a review.

Please do not fill out this form if no spots are open – unless it’s for a special promotion!

As explained above I do not save review spots which also means I do not keep a list of requests. If you submit a request while spots are closed you will get an auto-reply asking you to reapply when they are open again. The best thing to do is follow me on Twitter where I will announce when a new spot is open.
