Review Policy

If you have a book tour or a promotion for your book you want me to participate in, shoot me an email for availability. This promo post can be about anything:

for instance just book information,

an excerpt,

or giveaway,

Top Ten list,


author interview,

or a mix of those.

Just make sure that it matches my preferences for my blog (so YA, contemporary fiction, and romance).

You can contact me through contact page.

Randa’s Rants and Books is currently and kindly accepting, both e- and print-ARCs for reviews from publicists, authors, agents or others. You can contact me through my contact page.

I will try to write a review for every book I will receive, however, they might not all be high stars, so don’t expect 4 or 5 stars only. If I dislike a book, I will be honest about it. If, in any case I really don’t like a book, and can’t get through it (I will of course always try to give it a few chances!), I will contact you and be sure to tell you why I couldn’t finish it.

* If you give me a book to review I will be sure to read and review the book within 3 weeks. Of course if you have a specific date in mind for the review, please let me know and I will accommodate to that date.

* If I write a review about a book I received, there will be a line or logo at the end of the posting that says something like: I received this book from [insert what applies] in exchange for an honest review.

Most of the books I am currently reviewing are my own books, from my own collection, or books I get from one of my libraries.  A very small part of my books is from Netgalley or from a publisher. The latter will be specifically mentioned.

I post my reviews on this blog, but also on Goodreads and Amazon (when they allow it). I will also promote the book review on my Twitter (@randaknight) and Instagram (@randaknight).


****Small Disclaimer***

All my reviews and ratings are my own, personal opinion on a book. I write reviews because I love to express my opinion and let my fellow booklovers and friends know what I thought of the books I read. It isn’t done to undermine or hurt authors or to hate on them and/or their books. Many times, I like to let other book nerds know about authors and their work.  Please remember this. Thanks.
