Review Policy 

Thank you for considering The Paperback Pilgrim as a possible reviewer for your book(s). I accepts review requests from a variety of genres including Adult Fiction, Historical Fiction, Sci-Fi/Fantasy, YA, and Nonfiction. I will accept review copies from large publishers, independent publishers, audiobook sites, and from requesting authors.

I will always try to review books in a timely manner, however, should there be a delay I will strive to keep the lines of communication open.

As I write honest reviews on The Paperback Pilgrim I cannot guarantee that the review for your book will always be positive. However, I understand the time and effort that goes into creating a book and will be respectful towards the book and its author.

5 – The book was phenomenal

4 – The book had more good parts than bad

3 – The book was equal parts good and bad

2 – The book had more bad parts than good

1 – The book was just bad all around

DNF – Occasionally I will come across books that, try as I might, I have been unable to finish. If this is a case it receives a rating of Did Not Finish (DNF).
