Review Policy

Review Policy

The Book Pushers accept review requests in the Romance, YA, Steampunk, SciFi Romance, Paranormal and Urban Fantasy genres. We accept review copies from large publishers, eBook publishers, and from requesting authors. We also are more than willing and happy to accept requests from independent publishers, but if they’re not in the genres that we mentioned above, we will most likely decline. Please use the form at the bottom of this page to submit your book for review.

Whilst we do our best to review books in a timely manner, in some cases, there might be a delay. Also, please be aware we do not and cannot review every book we receive, and we can’t accept every review request.

We accept review copies in paperback, but our preference is e-ARC copies.

We’re super honest in our reviews, so pretty please with sugar on top, don’t go sending us hate mail if we give your book a bad review. We’re critiquing the book, not the author personally.


Self-Published Policy:

Previously, we had a policy of not reviewing any self-published books on the blog. This has now changed. We will be reviewing self-published books, but we will only be reviewing copies that we have solicited or bought ourselves. If we have reviewed your self-published books in the past, please feel free to contact us again. This is due to the vast number of self-published titles that are out there.


Rating Scale

Our review guide has been changed from 5 Stars to the letter grade. This is what we grade on:

A(+/-) = OMG, the book totally rocked the awesome train all the way to awesomeville.

B(+/-) = We really enjoyed the book, and it was a good solid read.

C(+/-) = We liked it, but there were some issues with it.

D(+/-) = We didn’t like it because of a LOT of issues we found with it.

F(+/-) = We really, really disliked your book.

DNF = We did not finish it because we got so frustrated that the temptation to chuck the book or eReader against the wall was very strong.
