Review Policy

General information

I am currently accepting select Young Adult books for review. You can send emails to reviewscomingatya@gmail.com

I am also accepting any fiction that will be appropriate for teaching in the high school classroom (no graphic language or sexuality).

I accept ARCs and finished copies.

I am NOT accepting self-published books, indie press books, or interactive media books at this time. Review requests for these books will not receive a reply. 

Genres


I enjoy YA  fiction in the following genres:
  • Fantasy
  • Historical fiction
  • Fairy tale/myth retellings
  • Light contemporary romance
  • Paranormal 
  • Mystery
  • Gothic horror/romance
  • Humor
  • Dystopia
  • Memoirs/biographies
  • Non-fiction
    Accepting Books

I will make every effort to read and review in a timely fashion and with regard to release dates, but I cannot guarantee this. I prefer to receive a book 3-4 months prior to when you would like the review posted.


Reviews

I will write a review for every young adult book I finish. Many reviews will also be posted on my blog and Goodreads, though not all and they may be modified. My reviews are written from the perspective of a high school English teacher as well as a reader who is trying to reach the YA audience.

I write fair and honest reviews, but this does not mean I will always write positive reviews. My reviews are my opinion, and if I don’t enjoy a book then my review will reflect that.

Review Structure

All reviews will include the following: 
  • Cover art
  • Book stats: Title, author, publisher, page count, release date, series status
  • A personal summary
  • My review: What I liked and didn't
Author Guest Posts and Interviews


* Please Note: At this time, I will only accept guest posts from authors.

I am happy to host authors on Coming at YA!

If you would like to be featured, please email me with the following information:
  • Your name and the name of your book
  • A brief description of your book (or link to Goodreads)
  • Do you prefer a guest post or an interview? Will you provide a topic/questions or would you like me to? *
  • The month/date you would like to be featured**
  • If you would like to include a giveaway 

*Please note: If I have not read your book yet and you are coming up with your own guest post topic, then I prefer, but do not require, you send me a copy of your book.

If I have not read your book yet and I am coming up with the guest post topic or interview questions, then I require a copy of your book and 3-4 months advance time to read your book. 

** Please note: I schedule my posts months in advance (that is, if you contact me in January, the odds are slim to none that I will have an opening available for you in February).
