Review Policy + Giveaway Guidelines

Review Policy

I would be delighted to accept books for review from authors and publishers. I accept books in paperback, hardcover or ARC version. I am currently not accepting ebooks for review. I still have too much ebooks in my TBR. I occasionally review titles by self-published authors. I prefer physical copies over digital ones.

I review Young Adult books and, occasionally, Middle Grade books. I read all YA and MG books of all genres, but I mostly read:

  • Dystopian
  • Post-apocalyptic
  • Science Fiction
  • Paranormal
  • Contemporary
  • Fantasy (includes Urban fantasy and High fantasy)
  • Psychological
  • Steampunk

I’m also open to reviewing books that fall under the “New Adult” genre, those with protagonists aged 18 – their early 20s.

My reviews are based on my reading experience, my opinion and the impact of the novel on me as a reader. I always post honest reviews. I try to be understanding as much as possible. I also try to consider the intention of the author in how he/she wrote the book. Rest assured, I'm not harsh. :)

I cross-post my reviews on Goodreads all the time. I can also post on Barnes & Noble and The Book Depository.

Please take note that Fragments of Life is a blog based in the Philippines.
