Book Review Policy

If you would like us to review your book, please email us at TheEagerReaders[at]gmail[dot]com.  We are currently accepting review requests for YA novels, with a particular preference for paranormal, fantasy, and urban fantasy YA novels.  We are also happy to consider review requests for children's books and middle grade fiction.  At this time, we are not accepting requests to review self-published books or pdf manuscripts, and we are only accepting e-book requests through NetGalley.

We post our reviews on this blog and share them on Amazon, Powell's, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, and Shelfari.  Upon request, we will also share our book reviews on sites such as The Book Depository, LibraryThing, or Visual Bookshelf.  We also post links to each of our reviews and giveaways on twitter and facebook.  

We do not have affiliate relationships with any booksellers but do like to share links to several booksellers  within each review to help our blog readers find and purchase the book through their seller of choice.  Each of our reviews contains direct links to find the book on IndieBound, Amazon, The Book Depository, and Powell's.  Occasionally, we will also include a link to Barnes & Noble or to a specific bookstore that regularly carries signed copies of an author's books.  In addition to the bookseller links, our reviews contain links to find each book on Goodreads, Shelfari, LibraryThing, and Visual Bookshelf.  If available, we will also share book trailers and will link to the author's website, blog, facebook, twitter within our reviews.

We are happy to post our reviews on a specific date if requested, so long as we receive the book at least two weeks prior to that date.  And we will gladly host giveaways, author interviews, or blog tours along with our review.  If we receive an ARC well in advance of a book's publication date, we will withhold our review until two weeks before the release date unless otherwise requested.  All of our reviews express our honest opinions, and we try to be very selective about the book genres we accept because we would prefer to review primarily books that we are likely to love.

We thoroughly enjoy reading and promoting excellent books!  Thank you for considering us as a resource to help spread the word about your book!
