Book Review & Rating Policy

Contact Me:

If you would like me to review your book email me at: or simply submit the form you will find on the bottom of this page.

Genres Accepted: 

I have very eclectic tastes in books. However for this Blog I am STRICTLY reviewing Children's and YA books. Anything over a PG-13 rating offered to me will be reviewed (if accepted) on a different blog.

I am open to every genre just contact me. Sci-fi, Paranormal, Historical, Comedy, Horror, Steampunk, basically any genre at all in the YA and Children's spectrum can be reviewed here.

I am willing to participate in Blog tours, and I am open to other options such as Guest Posting, Book Spotlights, Giveaways etc.

I cross post on Goodreads, Amazon, and Facebook among other sites.

General Information

  1. I will never sell ARC's - they are for my own personal use only unless express written permission is given by the author to use for a giveaway. I will NEVER sell any review copies given to me.
  2. All reviews are my personal thoughts on the book. And while I always hope to like every book I read sometimes sadly I do not. If I do not like a book, I always try to state why with examples without spoilers. My reviews are not meant to be malicious in any way, and I don't believe in attacking the author. Writing a book is a huge accomplishment and I respect the time and effort put into each novel.
  3. Please note that while I try to get to your books as soon as possible real life may interfere at times. I usually will post a review between 2 - 8 weeks after the book has been received. If you need a review posted on a certain date or quicker please contact me and let me know in the email which date you need it reviewed by and I will let you know if I can accommodate your request.
  4. Thank you so much for considering Ohana Day Academy to review your book or short story! I choose the books to review based on a few things. I must like the premise and it must have sparked a bit of interest in my mind. I will read any genre as stated before but they must fit in with the YA and Children's spectrum.
