Take your pick (or just keep scrolling):
At present, I’m accepting only a limited number of books for review. I strive to review the books I receive in a timely manner and so adjust the number I accept accordingly, as my schedule allows.
That being said, I’m always happy to consider new reading material. Here are a few guidelines to ensure book and reader are a good fit:
- I will gladly consider for review finished copies, advanced review copies, audiobooks, or eBooks (.mobi format) in the following genres: fiction of many stripes (contemporary, historical, mild fantasy, literary, international, young adult), memoirs and essays, some biography, travel writing, food lit, and narrative nonfiction.
- I do not typically read fantasy, science fiction, mystery/thriller, crime (true or fictional), romance, poetry, self-help, diet and fitness, how-to, religion, or picture books.
- At this time I do not accept bound manuscripts or unsolicited self-published works for review.
Please note that, while I do try to review each book that comes to me, you are submitting a book for my consideration. I reserve the right not to respond to review requests that do not meet the guidelines above. I also reserve the right not to review a book as well as to post about why I did not finish a book.
When I review a book, I give my honest opinion. This means I cannot guarantee a positive review. However, I always try to include aspects I enjoyed about any book I review, along with suggestions for who might enjoy the book and outside links (such as the author’s website or another reviewer’s opinion).
If you have special concerns about when the review should be posted, please address them up front. Without prior agreement, I cannot guarantee I will be able to provide a review according to your schedule.
As for other promotions, I would be happy to host blog tours and giveaways that agree with my reading interests. If you have an online event that fits Erin Reads, please drop me an email so we can discuss details.
If, after reading through the above, you feel you have a book or event that would be a good fit for Erin Reads, I’d love to hear from you. Please get in touch using my contact page. Thank you!

I appreciate you taking the time to comment! Comments that add value to the conversation are warmly welcomed. I read and appreciate every comment. Though I do try to reply to each comment, either on Erin Reads, by visiting your blog, or occasionally via email, time constraints often prevent me from doing so as quickly or as frequently as I would like.
