Review Policy

Books with Benefits reads novels constantly, but we don’t always have the time to read everything we’d like to read.

There’s a couple of ways this happens.

1) We buy a book. We review it. We don’t always do this, but generally speaking, when there’s a book that incites us to conversation, we simply must review it.

2) We find your book on Netgalley. Hurrah for both of us! Though we don’t always review what we read on Netgalley, we do try to get to as many as we can. If we didn’t particularly enjoy your book, we will often refrain from posting about it unless you directly request that we do so.

3) You ask us to review your book during a certain period of time…alas! We are completely booked up! But there is hope! You can ask to do an Interview, or you can do a Guest Blog. Either option is fantastic for you, the author, and for us, the readers/bloggers. We want to hear what you have to say. It’s a great way to publicize yourself and your book.

4) You ask us to review your book. In this case, see the steps below.

We use a 5 Benefits rating system. While we want to offer an honest review, we also want to be supportive in our efforts. We may offer a critique, but we hope it is always a positive and beneficial one.

We post our reviews on Goodreads and Amazon (additionally, if appropriate, Netgalley).

Sometimes, we find we cannot finish a book or offer a positive review. If this happens, we reserve the right not to publish a review. This is best for all involved as, while your book may be wonderful, it may not suit our reading tastes or that of our readers.

If you would like to contact April or any of the wonderful reviewers/staff for a review, to send an ARC, or to request an interview:
