Review Policy

Review requests are currently CLOSED unless otherwise notified.

Thank you so much for your interest in sending me your book for review! Before you consider sending me a request for review, please keep the following in mind:

I will consider almost any books for review, however I highly prefer Young Adult OR Adult Paranormal / Urban Fantasy books and am more likely to accept requests for books that fall into those genres. If you have a YA book you’d like me to review, I review books from all of the following genres on my blog:

» Contemporary
» Fantasy/Dystopia
» Historical Fiction
» Mystery/Thriller
» Paranormal/Urban Fantasy
» Science Fiction

However, there are a handful of genres that I will not consider for review. If your book falls under the following genres, I would recommend a blogger other than me:

» Biographies
» Children’s/Picture books
» Memoirs
» Nonfiction
» Religion/Spirituality

In every review I write, I include the title, author, genre, release date, publisher, page count, book synopsis & cover (from Goodreads), a rating from 1 to 5 stars (see scale below) and what I thought about the book. My rating scale typically looks like:

» 5 stars – I LOVED this book and nearly everything stood out to me.
» 4 stars – I really enjoyed the book, despite having a few flaws.
» 3 stars – I liked some things about the book and disliked others.
» 2 stars – The book had some redeeming qualities, but wasn’t for me overall.
» 1 star – I did not like this book at all, and/or did not finish it.

I will also include half stars if I found a book to be somewhere in between ratings.

Please keep in mind that now matter what format these books are received in, I will always give my honest and unbiased opinion in my review. Sometimes I will dislike books that I approve for review; please do not take it personally. Even if I do not like your book, I will still give it a fair review and include positive constructive criticism.

If you are an author and/or publisher and would like me to review your book, please contact me via email at dianaprincereviews@gmail.com. I will accept both physical and e-book copies. If you do not hear back from me within a week or two, it’s safe to assume I’m not interested at this time, but please don’t hesitate to reach out in the future with requests when I’m accepting them again.

When requesting me to review a book for you, please include:

» Title and brief description of your book
» Publication date
» Time frame you would like and/or need me to review it in
» If you would like a link to the review when it is posted

I personally prefer to receive physical copies, but again, I accept both physical and digital copies, especially for international authors. If you are providing me with a digital copy, please send it in EPUB format unless otherwise notified. 

I am more than happy to do to other types of posts, such as cover reveals, guest posts, interviews, or spotlights. I am not interested in posts unrelated to books or bookish subjects. Feel free to email me at dbbananas@gmail.com for non-review posts as well, briefly describing what you would like me to include in my post and any other additional information as well. I will likely not respond to book or post requests that I am not interested in, but again, please feel free to reach out if you are interested or if you have any additional questions. Best wishes!
