Well, that didn’t take long! My To Be Reviewed list filled up fast! Thank you VERY much for wanting me to review your book – I wish I had time to review them all! Please check back for when I am taking requests again.
You can email me review requests at Erik@thiskidreviewsbooks.com .
I review picture and middle grade books. I do review some YA books, but I have to let my parents look at the content of them first before accepting a book. Books sent to me should only have minor bad language, no graphic violence or anything else a twelve-year-old shouldn’t be reading. It takes about 8-9 weeks from the time I get a book to review to when the review is posted (may go quicker in the summer when I don’t have school).
When sending me a book review request, please let me know a little about yourself and a description of your book. Authors can also send me “real” books and I will send my address when I respond to the review request. Although I like “real” books more, I have a kindle to review ebooks (MOBI files please, PDFs don’t work well). I usually let authors decide which one they want to send. I cannot accept every book I am sent because of a full “to be reviewed” list. I do reply to every email I get so if you don’t get a response, I didn’t get your email.
I post reviews on my blog, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords (if it’s an indie) and GoodReads. I rate books on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and GoodReads using their star system and I use my bookworm rating for my blog (see MY RATING SYSTEM). **Please do not send Amazon gift cards in a money value to purchase the book for review. Send the actual book, file or gift a book from Amazon. Amazon considers a gift card (even if it is used to buy the book for review) as payment for a review and won’t let me post a review for a book like that. Plus, I never accept any money for the reviews I do.
I appreciate every book review request I get and I really wish I could read every one, but I am only one kid! I do often refer books I can’t review to other kid book reviewers.
