What types of books do you review?
I review books for children and young adults, an am especially interested in:
- High-interest nonfiction for kids of all ages
- Books, both fiction and nonfiction, featuring multicultural characters
- Books geared specifically toward toddlers and babies
- Dystopian fiction, science-fiction, paranormal fiction for middle grade or young adults
- Realistic/issue-based young adult fiction
Do you review PDFs or e-books?
I will accept e-books of Middle Grade and Young Adult books that are compatible with a Kindle e-reader. I do not accept e-book versions of picture books. Part of the magic of reading is being able to flip through books and devour the material, especially if it's a book with illustrations.
Do you review self-published books?
I accept self-published books for review on a case-by-case basis. If you have a self-published children's book, please e-mail me with a detailed description of your book and why you'd like me to consider it for review.
Can you guarantee a review?
No. Acceptance of a book does not guarantee a review. Sometimes I choose not to review a book because it does not fit within The Well-Read Child's mission. I only spend time reviewing books that I feel children, young adults, and adults will find appealing or books about which I have something to say. I'm always honest in my reviews, so you may expect to see negative reviews from time to time.
Do you review book aps?
Yes! I will review book aps that are downloadable on an iPhone or iPod touch.
