What We Review

Our main preferences are Romance, Fantasy, and Historical Fiction. We will also review General Fiction, New Adult, Mystery and Suspense, Middle Grade, and Young Adult.

We do not review Non-Fiction, Children’s Literature (i.e. Storybooks, Early Readers, and Chapter Books), Religion, Westerns, Poetry, Sci-Fi, Horror, and Erotica.

We will consider requests for reviews outside of the above preferences if we are particularly interested in the book and it fits with the Bibliomavens blog.

  • Summary
  • Honest review (typically spoiler free)
  • Can include author bio and links if provided

Where We Publish Our Reviews

Review Policy Disclosure

We will always provide an honest review. We will post both positive and negative reviews, but we reserve the right to not review the book as well. Receiving a copy of the book does not guarantee that we will like it or review it. If we choose not to review the book after receiving it, we will contact the requester. All reviews are the honest opinions of ourselves and are not meant to offend.

We have the right to accept or not accept a book for review, but will give each request we receive an honest consideration. We cannot promise a response to every request, but we will try our best.

Every book we review is either our own personal book or given to us by an author or publisher to review. We will always disclose in our reviews if the book was received in exchange for an honest review.

We will not sell any review copies we have received for profit.

If you have any other questions you can email us at bibliomavens@gmail.com or contact us here.
