Review Policy

Review Policy & Disclaimer:

Thank you for considering The Alternative Kryptonite to read and review your novels! I do review indie and self-published books.

Reviews Include: Title, author, cover art, link to Goodreads page, summary from Goodreads, my thoughts on the book, and a rating. I will also link to Amazon/Barnes & Noble if requested.

I do use a "5 star" rating system. I will state what I liked about the book and if so, what I did not like about the book. At the end I will give a 1-5 star rating (does include decimal points: for example 4.5). I will always be honest in my reviews and I do not guarantee a positive rating and review. Though, all of my reviews will be fair and honest.

Time: I will try to read and review ARCs before their release date. If there is a time preference, please specify.  

Genre’s That I Will Accept:
I review books for Young Adult in a wide variety of genre’s:
-Science Fiction (Post-Apocalyptic Mostly)
-Urban Fantasy
-Paranormal Romance
-Contemporary Romance
-Contemporary Fiction

Genre’s That I WILL NOT Accept:
-books with religious undertones
-anything Adult (esp. romance)

My Reviews: I post all of my reviews to my blog and to Goodreads. I am also willing to post the review to Amazon & Barnes & Noble when requested. Links to the review will appear on my Twitter Account.

Series: If you are requesting a review for a book in a series, please be willing to provide the previous books in the series if I have not read them. This will enable me to grasp a better understanding of the book so I can give a better review.

Book Formats I Will Accept:
-print copies

Blog Tours: I am happy to participate in a blog tour if the book on tour meets the criteria above.

What Now? If you feel that I will enjoy your book, send the request to my email. If you want to get a better feel for the types of books I enjoy, check out my reviews here.

If you want to send me a request, you can find a way to contact me here.

Thank you,
Maggie Thompson
