Review policy

Last updated: 26 September 2019

Thank you so much for your interest in working with me! I am currently accepting books for review or authors to feature.

I review both my own purchased books as well as advanced readers copies. If you are an author or publisher, please read my review policy so that no misunderstandings can arise.

I mostly read young adult and adult fiction. Every now and then I am also interested in reading books written specifically for children/middle grade. Thankfully I do not have a faint heart, so sex, gore and trigger warnings do not bother me (as long as it is part of the story). 

Genres I enjoy reading most
♥ fantasy
♥ paranormal
♥ contemporary
♥ romance
♥ dystopia
♥ retellings

I am not a big fan of science fiction, horror, erotica and thrillers (such as true crime). Please keep that in mind.

My reviews
Every book I’ve read will be reviewed, whether I liked it or not. Therefore I will always try to be as kind as possible. However, I am not going to censor my reviews. Reviews will appear on both my blog and Goodreads. I am not submitting my reviews to Amazon.com as I mostly buy my books through Amazon.de (faster shipping), The Book Depository of Dutch websites/booksellers, and Amazon.com only accepts reviews of books bought at their website (unfortunately).

Sometimes I am unable to finish a book. I have a busy life and if I don’t like a book, I’d rather not finish it so that I can continue on tackling my growing TBR pile. Book I did not finish (DNF) will not be reviewed, although I will mention why I did not finish this book and when I stopped reading it. Important: I will never DNF an ARC I asked for.

If a book was sent to me by the author or publisher I will state that in my review in the form of “This book was sent to me by the [author/publisher]“. If a galley got approved on Netgalley, I will mention “I received a free ARC by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.” This does not influence my thoughts. My reviews are, and always will be, my very own.

My reviews will always cover the plot, the setting, the writing and the characters. I will also mention the following:

Title | Author | ISBN | Number of pages | Published | Publisher

Rating system
At the end of every review I will post a rating in the form of stars.

Please include the following when submitting a book for review:
– Name and contact information
– Information about the book (title, synopsis, etc.)
– The ‘deadline’ for submitting/publishing my review

You can submit a book by sending an email to info@sanneandthebooks.com or by filling out the contact form below:
