Welcome to Kat's Book Buzz and thank you for your interest in my site. If you are a publisher or an author interested in sending me a book for review, please refer to the section below to ensure that the book you would like me to review is a good fit.
What do I read?
I enjoy Literary, Contemporary and Mainstream Fiction, some Chic-Lit,
Teen/YA, New Adult, Paranormal, Dystopian, Fantasy, and some Science Fiction. I'm always open to suggestions and always looking to
discover an author or series that I can fall in love with. I don't read horror, erotica, or middle grade. I have two young sons and would be willing to review children's books if they are appropriate for my family, as I will review the books based on the reaction of my children. Other genres I will consider upon request.
I accept physical copies of books, as well as ebooks. I only accept PDF files in extraordinary circumstances. I am open to reviewing self-published authors, provided that the book is easily accessible to the public and I think it is a good fit with my personal interests.
What to Include With a Request
Please include author, title and publication information, as well as a synopsis of the book. Cover art photo would also be appreciated. If you have a specific review deadline in mind, please advise the review request. I do my best to accommodate these dates, when possible. If I cannot make the deadline, I will let you know and you can decide how to proceed. Unfortunately, I cannot accept every request, but I will do my best to respond to them all.
What to Expect from a Review
All reviews will be my personal opinion on the book. Please click on my Rating System page for information on my personal ratings and my philosophy when reviewing books. I do not receive compensation for reviews, and will clearly mark when a complimentary copy of a book has been received for review. I will provide an estimate of how long it will take me to read and review the book. I reserve the right to change those dates if the need arises. If the book is an ARC, I will strive to post a review the week before the publication date.
Reviews will include cover art, author and publication details, a synopsis, review, and final rating. Additional information, such as author interviews, book tours, etc. can be added upon request. I will always strive to be respectful in my reviews, even if the book just wasn't to my liking. I am willing to help authors promote their books on my blog through interviews, guest posts or giveaways. Please include any ideas in your review request. Reviews will be cross-posted to Goodreads.
Thank you again for your interest, and I look forward to hearing from you.
