Established in 1976, the Midwest Book Review is an organization committed to promoting literacy, library usage, and small press publishing. We post our reviews on the Internet with a number of thematically appropriate web sites, databases, and online discussion groups such as alt.books.reviews. Print books are reviewed free of charge. However, there is a charge of a $50 "Reader Fee" for reviewing ebooks, pre-publication manuscripts, galleys, uncorrected proofs, ARCs, and .pdf files.

There were over 391,000 books self-published in 2012. That’s a lot of company (and competition!) for any author. IndieReader offers the best value for reviews, bar none. IR’s reviewers—some of the best in the field—will let you know if you’ve achieved what you set out to do. Charges may apply. IR also recommends titles to the HUFFINGTON POST and USA TODAY.

I will read any book as long as I like the sound of it — I’m equally open to indie books and traditionally published ones. The only thing that matters to me is whether the story is one that intrigues me.
Are you an author looking to get your book reviewed at The Book Geek's book review blog? If so, please email either Brandi or Emily. We get so many requests from authors on top of the ARCs we receive from publishing companies that we cannot possibly review them all. Providing us the info we request will help us decide if we are a good match!

The Smart Bitches Trashy Books blog began in 2005 as a community of romance readers eager to talk about which romance novels rocked their worlds, and which ones made them throw the book with as much velocity as possible. Are you dying to see us review a particular book? Yours, perhaps (it certainly doesn’t have to be)? Use this form, and yes, we really do need all this info. Thanks.
This book blog LOVES “Chick Lit” and contemporary romance with bad boy (especially rock star) heroes. I also enjoy paranormal alpha heroes with human heroines (whether they be urban fantasy or paranormal romance). However, I am not opposed to reading other genres. I love to read everything, but these are my current “thrills."
The majority of our reviews on Teenreads.com are fiction titles for teens ages 12-18. We review bestsellers, debut authors, contemporary fiction, historical fiction, mysteries, thrillers, fantasy/science fiction and romance. We also delve into Non-Fiction when a title is teen-friendly.
We’re always interested in hearing about new books, but even with a stable of writers across book blogs we can’t get to everything. So if you’d like to tell us about something, shoot us an email. Before sending something for consideration, take a look around the site to get a feel for who we are, who our readers are, and how we go about things. Bonus points will go to submissions that have looked at our contributors and can suggest which contributor might be a good fit for the book.
I am happy to accept print copies and e-copies on occasion. Print is strongly preferred and given more of a priority. Please note: I reserve the right to refuse to review a book, but also realize if I do review your book, I will review it per my usual reviewing style. I’m more than likely to reject any title containing zombies, ghosts and witches since they don’t particularly interest me.

The Novel Novice book review blog features primarily Young Adult literature, and select Middle Grade and children’s picture books. We very rarely review adult titles that would appeal to YA readers, but not often. We do NOT normally feature or review New Adult literature. Any adult titles we review or feature should at least be appropriate for teen readers.
In 2008, this devious duo founded The Book Smugglers, a book blog dedicated to speculative and genre fiction for all ages. In addition to being an outlet for Ana and Thea’s bottomless obsession with books, reviews, and assorted popgeekery, it is also the home of Book Smugglers Publishing–an independent digital-first publisher of SFF fiction and nonfiction.

The purpose of our book reviews and this book review blog is to engage our readers in honest discussion of romance (all sub-genres) and urban fantasy books. While we are eager to try books based on blurbs that appeal to us, not every request will be reviewed.
Book reviews and recommendations from the most trusted voice in book discovery. We've reviewed the nation's top publishers' books since 1933. Our coverage includes the big 5 houses, small presses, genre publishers & more.
We are a group of friends that love to talk romance books, tv shows, movies, food and fashion. Between the five of us, Scandal, Lola, Nikki, Tania and Teena, we read across all genres. We have varying tastes and differing opinions on almost everything. Please use the contact form below if you are interested in requesting a review, asking a question or purchasing advertising.
My name’s Dane Cobain, and I’m the guy behind SocialBookshelves.com. SocialBookshelves.com was founded in April 2013 and officially launched on May 1st of the same year as a book blog with a difference – each review is constrained by the number of pages contained in the book.
Young Adult & New Adult fiction is what I focus on! This includes: YA/NA Contemporary/Contemporary Romance, YA/NA Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Dystopia, etc, and YA/NA Historical Fiction/Historical Romance. However, my tastes and this book blog are not limited to just those genres. I am a book lover and read a wide variety of genres.

It would be impossible for this book review blog to accept every request that comes our way but know that we do love hearing from you and we do spend time reading every single review request that comes our way, looking for that synopsis that will grab both of our book hearts.

The Lesbian Review is the home of book reviews done by women who absolutely LOVE lesbian fiction and who are not just going to read and enjoy every lesbian novel out there. We read a lot and are a tough crowd to please. But that is great news for you because it means this book blog only showcases lesbian fiction books that are really good. If we don’t like it, we don’t review it.
Crime Fiction Lover was set up by two journalists who love reading crime stories – everything from atmospheric noir to thriller mysteries and police procedurals. The rise of Kindle, eBooks and iBooks interests us a great deal. We hope to discover and share some of the best reads on these new formats, but by no means will we overlook traditional print. There’s nothing like the feel and smell of a freshly printed book.
