Review Policy


Books and Bindings specializes in reviewing FICTION, mainly women’s fiction, spicy romances, cozy mysteries, some suspense, contemporary fiction, literary fiction, and some paranormal… but Empress DJ is not really a fan of horror or zombies.  Zombies are just so tiresome… they are horrible conversationalists and only seem to want me for my brains… Review requests outside these genres will be up for consideration.

Book Format

*Mobi preferred*

*   Hardcover copies
*   Paperback copies
*   Print ARCs
*   eBook copies (mobi, ePub, and/or PDF)
*   Audiobooks

The reviews are based solely on the reviewer’s opinion, whether positive or negative. Expect the reviews to be honest and informative. For requested reviews, we post one or more favorite quotes from the book on the review. The rating and full text of the review can be sent to you prior to publishing it, including the date that it will be published. On the day it is published,  all reviews will automatically be posted, if applicable, on Amazon, B&N, and Goodreads.

Books in a Series
We only review series installments in order. Although, there are exceptions – if a book that is a part of a series can be a stand-alone book (meaning, a reader will not have to read the previous installments and the following installments to have a full grasp of the book).

We are not able to give a specific time frame for reviews. However, for ARCs, we strive to have the review ready by the release date. You can request for a certain time period when you want your review ready and it will be considered.
