Submitting a Book Review Request does not obligate Bloody Bookish to review it. As much as we would like to review every book we receive, we simply cannot. We will do our best to review as many as we receive. Whether it is due to time limitation, whether we feel the book does not fit with our demographic readership or some other reason, please do not take it personally. Try submitting a Review Request for another book at a later date.

Reviews will, when possible/applicable be cross-posted on,,,  GoodReads and Smashwords. If there is anywhere else you’d like our reviews posted, please let us know in advance and we will do our best to accomodate you.

Occasionally, reviewed PRINT (hardcover & paperback) books will be given away in a promotional contest on If you do not wish for this, please let us know in your Book Review Request
