Review Policy


NOTEDue to the overwhelming number of amazing authors who have requested that The Book Hookup review their books, we are currently accepting limited books for review.  Please keep checking back with us again soon for further updates!

The Book Hookup accepts either e-books (preferably in mobi format or e-pub depending on the blogger who reads the book), galleys, ARC copies, and hardcopies in either paperback or hardcover for review. When submitting your title please include a synopsis. Links to your website, Goodreads, Amazon or Barnes and Noble are also extremely helpful to us.

We consider ourselves book bloggers, not professional reviewers. Our goal is to simply share our love of great books with other readers; our reviews will not be a critical analysis of every sentence. All reviews will be honest reflections of the story read and will mainly consist of our thoughts and feelings and will not contain any details that would spoil the outcome for readers. Outside opinions will not influence our reviews and you can always expect a truthful, genuine opinion from our site, including reviews that may be negative in nature.

We will try our best to read titles accepted for review in a timely manner. A deadline on a review will only be set if you indicate that the review be completed within a certain time frame. Reviews will be posted on our site and Goodreads as well as links provided to the review via our Twitter and Facebook sites.

***We will not accept unfinished/unpublished novels***

Genres of books accepted and preferred (including Indie/self published titles):

Urban Fantasy
Dark Fantasy
Contemporary Fiction
Historical Romance
Young Adult

Genres of books not (typically) accepted:
Science Fiction
Titles with religious undertones

Due to the number of requests we receive as well as time constraints The Book Hookup will only respond to the requests accepted for review. We are selective in our book choices and tend to pick books that interest us most. Unfortunately, even though we accept books that we think we’ll enjoy most, we cannot and will not guarantee a positive review.

We will never sell any ARC given to us and will never infringe on an author’s copyright regarding an eBook that we have received.

If a book has been given less than 3 stars (in rating terms), We reserve the right to decline any promotional posts to that specific book; including author interviews, giveaways, etc.)

Interviews/Guest Posts/Blog Tours

We would be thrilled to host authors for an interview, guest post or a stop on a blog tour.

If you are interested in doing an author interview, we request that a copy of your book be sent with sufficient time to read before the questions need to be submitted. Please feel free to contact us for additional information.

  4. Hi

    I’m an indie author from Pakistan published on Amazon. I’m interested in an author interview as well as book reviews of 2 short stories.

    Please revert if this would be of interest to you.


  5. Hi! I love your blog and would love it if you could review my novel Mutt. Should I attach a .mobi with the initial e-mail request or wait to hear back from you before sending it?

      Hi Evan,
      Send an email with a short description of the book and if we are able to review it we’ll get back to you and you can send the mobi at that point. thanks! 🙂

  6. My ebook currently with Amazon is the synopsis of NOT typically accepted by you, unless it is my Memoirs, Paranormal, Mysticism, of a young boy in WW2 Italy-Aboard “ship”-America totally taken over by a Power not of this earth. It is to your benefit as well as mine for a review. I will add an attachment of the book should you ask for it. Thanks, Patrick (PJ).
