Review Policy

Thank you for your interest in my blog! I’m happy to accept books (ARCs or finished copies) for review, just as long as they fall into the genres I read. I’ve listed down my preferences, so please be sure to read them before sending me any review requests. For my promotional policies, please read below. 

NOTE: Unfortunately, I no longer accept review requests from self-published authors, unless we’ve worked together in the past, or your book is on my to-read list on Goodreads. Sorry for any inconvenience!

What to include in your review request:

As I receive lots of emails daily, I try to prioritize them and I wouldn’t want your review request ending up in my junk folder or buried under tons of other emails! To prevent that, please be sure to make sure you:

  • Have a relevant subject line
  • Have a sincere message (forwarded message or messages sent to a bunch of other book bloggers at the same time will be deleted, unread)
  • Include your book title, cover, and link to its Goodreads page
  • Include your book synopsis and genre(s)
  • Anything else you think I might need to know

Genres I read:

  • Young adult
  • Science fiction
  • Fantasy: urban & epic/high
  • Dystopia
  • Post apocalyptic
  • Contemporary
  • Paranormal
  • Chick-lit
  • Mystery/Thriller
  • Horror: select titles only
  • Middle grade: select titles only
  • New adult: select titles only

Genres I don’t read:

  • Non-fiction
  • Erotica
  • Biographies/autobiographies
  • Religion
  • Politics
  • Self-help
  • Short story collections

Promotional Policies

Cover reveals:
Unfortunately, I have decided not to participate in any cover reveals, as I feel that they don’t contribute to the content of my blog.

Blog tours:
I would be happy to participate in blog tours — just as long as the book falls into any of the genres I read, listed above. However, please note that I am very particular about the kinds of blog tours I participate in, as I only want content that I feel will contribute to my blog in some way.

Interviews & guest posts:
Like blog tours, I’ll be happy to host you on my blog, but your book must be on my to-read list on Goodreads, as that means that I have an active interest in it.


Following the FTC guidelines for bloggers and endorsements, all books read and reviewed on Adrift on Vulcan were either purchased, borrowed, won, or gifted to me. All reviews were written by me, unless stated otherwise, and I receive no compensation for reviewing a book. I also strive for honesty, so however I obtained the book does not affect my thoughts on it.
