Review Request Policy


Thank you so much for taking the time to check out our review policy.  If you are an author or publisher please take the time to  read this page carefully before requesting a review If you are looking to be a featured read in our Online Book Community/Book Club TBR and Beyond – you can go HERE for more information.

TBR and Beyond is more than happy to consider your request, whether you are an author or publisher.  You can reach me at tbrandbeyond (at) gmail (dot) com – – please only use this or the contact form to contact me about this.  I might not see the request on our social media outlets.

Currently I’m accepting physical copies and ebooks.  Please keep in mind that I am a Canadian blogger. If it’s a physical copy then I WILL feature photos of it on our Facebook Group, TBR and Beyond.  As well as our other social media outlets.
I am currently accepting Young-Adult, New Adult, Middle-Grade and some Adult books.

The genres I review are: 

  • Fantasy
  • Science-Fiction
  • Contemporary (mostly diverse or geek based)
  • Thrillers, Horror, Paranormal and Mystery
  • Historical Fiction,
  • Dsytopian

I do sometimes accept self-published horror.  I’m very picky on what I choose to accept in this category though.

TBR and Beyond does NOT accept Erotica, Christian Fiction, Non-Fiction or Self-Published authors (unless horror).  I would love to be able to support all the self-published authors but my schedule does not allow it.

I am also open to:

  • Interviews
  • Blog Tours
  • Street Teams
  • Giveaways
  • Cover Reveals

What You can Expect From TBR and Beyond:

An honest and detailed review.   I will give any positive and/or negative thoughts on the book, but always in a constructive manner. I am not interested in tearing a book to pieces, but we’ll always be completely honest.  The review will be placed on the blog, Goodreads, Indigo and Amazon.

All blog posts are posted on our our large TBR and Beyond group as well.   We have more than 7,900k members (all vetted to make sure they are actual accounts) and more than 40k comments, posts and reactions monthly. We will sometimes take a step further will recommend the book as a spotlight in the group or even pick it for a large group read.   This is not guaranteed and based solely on my (or a team member’s) love of the book.

If the book is Middle-Grade it will be featured on our weekly Middle-Grade Monday blog post, as well as spotlighted in the TBR and Beyond Facebook Group.

I cannot guarantee a time when I can read the books by, usually.  I am normally fairly busy with review requests, as well as reading my own books.  You can request it though and I’ll do our best to to work with the deadlines, schedule depending.   I do promise that I always prioritize my arcs and will do our best to get them done in a timely manner.

My Rating System:
–  5 Stars: I loved it!
It was, or was close to, perfection in my eyes.
4 Stars: Still really enjoyed the book, but something held me back from giving it the full give stars.
– 3 Stars:  It was a fun read, I liked it well enough. It just didn’t blow me away.  It still could easily be recommended from me though.
– 2 Stars:  Meh, didn’t enjoy/wasn’t for me. Didn’t like much about the book but had something going for it enough to not get the lowest rating. Nothing I’d recommend.
– 1 Star:  Hated it!
This rating is rarely given out and it likely flat-out offended me for one reason or another.  Just no!

I do NOT rate books that I DNF, I sometimes mention them in posts and give my reasons why but unless I’ve read more than 75% of the book, then it will not get a rating.  I just don’t feel it’s fair to the author.

I always do my very best to get back to everyone as fast as I can.  Unfortunately, I get a lot of emails every day and cannot respond to every single one of them .  I look forward to hearing from you and hopefully working with you.
