My reviews will include:

*I do not use a rating system for my book reviews.*
Note: I try to read and review all ARCs before their release date. If there is a time preference, please specify in your request. Take into consideration that all requests that I accept do not guarantee a review post.
Genres that I will and will not accept:
Anything that is for the Young Adult audience.
- Chick Lit
- Contemporary Fiction
- New Adult
Will not accept:
- Nonfiction (i.e. autobiographies/biographies/memoirs)
- Science Fiction
- Titles with religious undertones
But if you feel that I will enjoy your novel, shoot me a request anyway. To get a feel for the kind of books that I enjoy, check out my reviews here.
How BOB reviews:
I don’t like to think of my book reviews as reviews. I consider them to just be my book thoughts. This is my place for me to squee and swoon over the awesomeness that can be found in books. I will state my jumbled thoughts on books—what I absolutely enjoyed about the book. I try not to include any spoilers in my reviews because I know without a doubt how much spoilers can ruin everything.
When I first discover a book via twitter, Goodreads, author websites, etc. my first impression of the summary of the book will automatically make me want to read it. That does not mean that I will adore the book after I have read it. I do not like to bash other people’s hard work but not every book will rock my boat. In a case where this occurs, I will explain why I did not enjoy it.
My reviews will be posted on:
- Books Over Boys
- Random Buzzers
If you are requesting for me to read a book in a series, please be willing to provide the previous books in that series. In doing so, I will grasp a better understanding of the book and the series and that will reflect in my “book thoughts.”
Formats that I will accept:
I will accept printed, hardcopies of a book as well as ebooks under the Kindle (.mobi) format. Although, I have a stronger preference for printed copies.
Author Interviews/Guest Posts/Giveaways:
Books Over Boys will be delighted to host an author interview, a guest post, and/or a giveaway at the author and/or publisher's request.
If you meet these requirements, you can find ways to contact me here.
