Review Policy

General Information

At this time I am accepting all fantasy, science fiction, and graphic novels for review. You can send emails to QuirkyCatsFatStacks at gmail dot com.

I accept print ARCS, finished copies, and ebooks. If the book isn’t the first in the series, and I have not read the others, I may need access to the earlier series.

I am NOT accepting any audiobooks at this time. Exceptions may be made, but not guaranteed.

While there is no guarentee that your book will also be featured on my instagram account, the chances will be higher if I really enjoy the book, or if the cover is particularly nice looking.

Please be aware that most books sent in digital format will not be featured on my instagram account. If you would like it to be featured please send along a physical copy of the book.

  • Epic

Accepting Books

My acceptance of a book does not preclude my review of the book, but I will do my very best to make a consideration for each book I receive.

I will do my best to insure that each book that comes to me gets a review in a timely fashion, with particular regard to release dates. I cannot make or keep any guarantees on the timetables. To increase the efficiency of the review process, please send me the book at least two months before the release date.

Reviews

Many of my reviews will also be posted to my goodreads account, potentially with some editing (minus images, etc). My reviews, as the title of my blog implies, can sometimes be quirky and will usually carry a cheerful tone. They will not give an in-depth analysis.

I do my very best to write honest reviews, therefor I cannot and will not promise that all of my reviews are positive, but any negative comments will be focused solely on the book, and not the author or publisher. My reviews reflect my opinions, and nothing more.

On the off chance that I do not finish a book, I will do my upmost to include a reason for why I was unable to finish.

Review Structure

Every review of mine will include:

  • Cover art
  • Book stats (The title, author(s), publisher, release date, series status)
  • Where/how I received the book
  • My review (what I did or did not like)
  • Kitty (Star) Rating

SOME reviews will also include hand drawn artwork by me, related to the novel. These are free to be used by the author, all I ask for is credit for the art.

Rating System:

5 Kitty Rating = I absolutely loved this book!

4 kitty rating = I really enjoyed this book, even though it wasn’t perfect.

3 kitty rating = I liked this book, but I wasn’t over the moon for it.

2 kitty rating = There were things I didn’t like about this book

1 kitty rating = I didn’t enjoy it at all
