Upcoming Events:

I am taking a blogging break for a little while. I am in the process of getting all of my challenges for 2011 picked out so you'll see a bunch of those posts.

Review Policy

Updated October 25, 2010


The Book Junkie's Bookshelf is run by me (Jamie), a 20something with very eclectic reading tastes. I do work full time (3rd shift) as well, so my reading time is pretty precious. Though I have pretty eclectic taste in reading materials I have decided that I am only going to be excepting review requests in the following genre's: Urban Fantasy, Paranormal, Non-Fiction, General Fiction and Thrillers. I also will NOT be accepting any self published books. I am also available for Author interviews, guest posts, blog tours, and giveaways as well. At this time I will only be accepting books in written form.

Contact Information:

If you are interested in having me read and review your book please contact me via e-mail.  The e-mail address that I use for all of my book related dealings is: bookjunkie221@gmail.com.  I can also be found on Twitter (@bookjunkie221), and various book related forums (which are found in the sidebar of my blog. Also, when contacting me please give me as many details ( important dates, name of the book, author, release date, if there are any other webpages you would like the review posted at, etc.) as possible.

After your book is received I will read and then post an honest review of your book, in a timely manner. Though please remember that I do work 3rd shift and my reading time is precious. Again if there are important date(s) that you would like the review posted please let me know this in your e-mail to me.

What I offer:

What I offer you, as well as my readers, is honest feedback about everything that I read. What I CAN NOT guarantee is a “glowing review”….I must be honest with not only myself but my readers as well, but of course all reviews will be tactful. In addition to reviews being posted on my blog I will also be posting them on Goodreads, and Barnes and Noble.  If you do send me an ARC I promise the following:

~ I will NOT resell your ARC.
~ I MAY giveaway your ARC, but if I do, there will be stipulations.
~ I will NOT post my thoughts on the ARC until 1 month before release (or otherwise stated in our communications).

Author Chats/Interviews/Giveaways:

I love getting to know the authors of the books that I read. I promise to make the process as painless as possible. To make it as easy as possible I can e-mail you the questions and you can e-mail me back with your responses.
