Thank you for your interest in Midnight Bloom Reads and taking the time to read my policies regarding reviews, giveaways and privacy.
First of all, this blog is a fun way for me to express my love of reading and hopefully share it with others! I’m not compensated in any monetary fashion for the content I post nor am I affiliated with any booksellers.
If you have any questions, concerns, or would simply like to contact me, please do so at: firstname.lastname@example.org
To any authors or publishers, I would be more than happy to accept review copies or join in blog tours, and host contests and author interviews.
For those novels I do accept for review, I will try my best to review the novel within a timely manner, but like most people, time does get the best of me sometimes. Please be understanding if a review is not posted immediately on the release date.
For any of my reviews (whether purchased, received for review from a publisher, etc.), I will always provide honest feedback and these opinions are strictly my own. Will I always fall in love with a book?... Well, no. However, I will always try to find balance when writing a review because while I may not like a book, I don't want to be the one who stops a person that could feel otherwise. Everyone is entitled to their opinions and I'll respect yours if you'll respect mine.
I mainly review YA fiction novels, ranging anywhere from paranormal and urban fantasy to contemporary fiction. Those are just some examples; I'm usually open-minded when it comes to different genres. I also really like to read NA and adult books, especially if they involve romance.
The summaries used in this blog are taken from Goodreads, Amazon.ca, Barnes & Noble, the publisher, or the author's website.
I also post my reviews on Goodreads and Chapters/Indigo as well.
Since I have been holding a growing number of giveaways on this blog, I would like to set a general guideline of what to expect of the contests I host.
- On the giveaway post, I will always indicate who the contest is open to and the deadline to enter.
- All giveaways are open to those 13 years of age or older.
- I will email the winner(s) for their mailing address once a contest finishes.
- I will mail out prizes within 1-3 weeks of the completion of a giveaway.
- I am not responsible for items lost in the mail. Although it is unfortunate if this happens to occur, it is something that is entirely out of my control.
- I hold the right to disqualify any entries as I see fit.
Your private information will never be given away on this blog. However, if you leave your email address in the comments section, I have no way of protecting against another individual using it. There is really no need for you to leave your email in the comments section anyways!
If you win a giveaway on the blog, I will send an email requesting your mailing address solely for the purposes of the contest. It will not be shared or distributed in any form. The only exception is in the case of a publisher offering to give the prize away. Your mailing address will then be forwarded to them so they may send it to you.
