Review Policy

For My Fellow Bookworms:

As a fellow reader, I know what you want are honest and fair book reviews - which is what you will get here. Regardless of whether I have purchased the book, had a book gifted to me or have received an ARC from a publisher, my reviews and opinions are my own.  I am not compensated for my reviews, which means I am not influenced in what I write.  When a book is provided to me from an author or publisher, it will be made clear on my posts, so that you are always informed.

To Publishers & Authors:

Thank you so much for visiting Magnolia Reads and your interest in working with me.  I am currently accepting Advanced Reading Copies and Review Copies of the following genres:

  • Mystery & Thriller

  • Psychological Thriler

  • Crime

  • Literary/Women's Fiction

  • Memoir

I prefer a physical copy of a book, but will accept eBooks for certain titles.  I will consider self-published work, depending on the topic and requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

For review requests, please provide the following information so I can ensure I am able to meet your requirements: 

  • Detailed book summary

  • Release date

  • Time frame in which you would like to see a review posted

  • Any additional expectations you may have

I will respond to requests within 1-3 business days.

If I Accept Your Book For Review:

Upon agreeing to review your book, I will provide my mailing address (for physical books) and commit to posting a review no less than ten day days before the publishing date, unless otherwise requested.  All reviews are cross-posted to:

  • Goodreads

  • 50 Book Pledge

  • Amazon Canada & Amazon US

  • Chapters Indigo

  • Barnes & Nobel

  • Instagram

  • Twitter

All books accepted for review will be read to completion and reviewed in full.

Other Opportunities:

I accept offers on a case-by-case basis for blog tours, product rep work, and guest blogging. Please contact me via my contact page on this site or at csawchuk22@gmail.com for more information.
