Review Policy

General Information

I am currently accepting select Young Adult books for review. You can send emails to wonderlandcheshiregrin(at)

Accepted Formats:
I accept ARCs, finished copies, and e-books. If the book is part of a series, I may need the previous books unless they are a standalone. 

Rejected Formats:
I don't accept audiobooks, self-published books, and indie press books. Review request for any of these types of books will not receive an answer. No exceptions. Sorry. 


Check my To-Read List on Goodreads. If your book is similar to any of them, I can review them.

I love YA books in the following genres:
  • Fantasy
  • Paranormal
  • Fairy Tales and Retellings 
  • Mystery
  • Chick-Lit
  • Dystopian
  • Poetry
  • Romance
  • Contemporary 
  • Historical Fiction
  • Science Fiction
  • Gothic
  • Tragedy
  • Humor
  • Teen
  • High School
  • Drama 
(Almost every genre)

I don't accept YA books in the following genres:
  • Bio
  • Memoir
  • Short Stories

I will sometimes review NA (New Adult) and Adult books. 

Accepted Books

If I decide to review your book, I will review it as soon as humanly possible. If you want the review of your book published by a certain date, please let me know.


A review will be written and posted for every YA book. All reviews will be posted on this blog and Goodreads. All my reviews perfectly reflect my feelings and thoughts about the book reviewed. They are honest and fair

All books abandoned will be given an explanation why they were abandoned.

Okay, I will begin running giveaways. For now, you will have to be over thirteen years old and live in the United States. If you are under thirteen, then ask your parents to enter. (Or older brother/sister and friends.) You will have twenty four hours to respond to my "You're the Winner" email or else I'll pick another winner. No exceptions. 


I'm currently open to interviews and Q&As with authors. Please message me if you wish to have a chat with me.
