Review Policies

To Readers of What Sarah Read:

Thank you so much for visiting my blog! My promise to you is that I will post fair and honest reviews of books I have purchased, borrowed, been gifted or have received as ARCs or review copies. I am in no way compensated for the work I do here on the blog, so my opinions are my own and not affected by any outside influences.

To Publishers and Authors:

Thanks so much for visiting What Sarah Read and your interest in requesting that I read and review your novel. I am currently accepting Advance Reading Copies and Review Copies of physical books and eBooks only. I do not accept self-published work. I am currently accepting novels that are Young Adult or New Adult in the following genres only:

  • Contemporary/Romance
  • Dystopian
  • Fantasy
  • Historical Fiction

With each review request I will need the following information in order to make an informed decision:

  • Detailed book summary
  • Release date
  • Why you think I would enjoy this book or why you would like me to consider reviewing
  • Time frame in which you would like to see a review posted
  • Any additional expectations you may have

Please allow at least one to two business days for my response.

If I Accept Your Book for Review

If I accept your offer, I will provide my mailing address (for physical books) and can commit to posting a review no less than ten days before the publish date (unless otherwise requested). Reviews are cross-posted to my Goodreads account and will also be promoted on Twitter and Instagram.

Negative Reviews

Please note that my reviews reflect my own personal opinions and tastes. Unfortunately, there may be instances in which I will post a negative review if I do not enjoy the book. I can promise that negative reviews will never be mean-spirited or detrimental in any way; just an honest take on what I thought of the book.

Did Not Finish Policy

I do reserve the right to not finish an ARC or review copy, and also not post a review if I do not feel comfortable doing so.

Additional Opportunities

I am also open to blog tours, cover reveals and guest blogging opportunities. Please email me at for more information.
