Featured Review: "Talon" by Julie Kagawa »

Review Policy

Dear Authors/Publishers

* Sorry! I am currently not accepting review requests. 

Thank you for visiting Vivaciously, Vivian! I accept books for review that follow the points listed below. Feel free to contact me about author interviews, cover reveals, or giveaways as well. As much as I'd love to read and review every request, being a student has limited my abilities to do that. Therefore, please note that not every review request will be accepted.
Please send your requests to: vivianli.0610@yahoo.ca
Other places you may contact me: GoodReads

Before sending in a request, feel free to check out some of the reviews I already have posted.

Posting Information: I will do my best to post an informative review in a timely manner or as by a suggested deadline. Reviews are usually posted about a month prior to the release date. However, if a requested deadline is unable to be met, I usually refuse the review request.
      About My Reviews: I write each review with due respect to the author. 

      My reviews are posted on my blog, GoodReads, and updated on Twitter. (Amazon to come)

      I understand the effort that an author may have spent on a book and my reviews are merely an honest, well-meant opinion of my experience with the book. Should the review be a negative one, I will always justify my points clearly and fairly. I never include spoilers in my reviews either, and leave all plot descriptions to the summary.
