Review Policy

Welcome to The Melaninated Bookshelf,

Books will be reviewed on a first come, first served basis. We try to review newly released books as close to the review date as possible. If publishers, authors, or publicist want a book reviewed by a certain time; arrangement will need to be made in advance. Depending on the number of books we have to review and personal time limitations posting dates are not set in stone. We try to post at least one book review a week (on Wednesday).

All books will be given an honest review. Both good and bad reviews will be posted and we will not edit our opinion.

We reserve the right to abandon any book at any time and post a review as to why we could not finish the book. We will try to complete at least 20% of the book before abandoning it.

Review post will include the following: cover of book, book information (page length, publication year, genre), and a complete honest review overall recommendation.

We review books in all genres expect erotica. As well traditionally, independently, and self published books.

The Melaninated Bookshelf accepts paper based books, audiobooks and ebooks. If requesting a ebook review please not that our preferred format is either kindle or epub. We will accept pdf files but because of formating issues they do not always provide the best reading experience on some devices.

Please send book review request to thelittlereadingnook at gmail dot com.
