I am currently accepting select Young Adult books for review. Emails regarding this should be sent to sumaya.musse@gmail.com. I accept ARCs and finished copies (in both print and electronic format),  as long as they are the start of a series or of a series I am engaged in reading at the moment.

I do not accept audiobooks or self-published books at this time. The only exception to this rule are the books that are a part of my TBR pile.

Genres that I currently read include Contemporary YA (especially of the fandom friendly variety), Fantasy YA (whether it is high fantasy or urban), fairytale/myth retellings, steampunk YA and Science Fiction YA.

There were a few things I liked about the book, but it wasn’t an enjoyable read.

I really didn’t enjoy reading this book and I probably DNFed it…

I also use 0.25 ratings when reviewing books. Ratings are based on my personal enjoyment of the book, meaning that I might not write positive reviews. While they might not be always positive, they are, in fact, honest. However, I will explain what exactly I didn’t like about the book and why others might like it more than me.

I will strive to review books based on release dates and/or when they have been given to me. To make sure that the time of the review is effective, please send a copy for review at least a month in advance. Thank you for reading this and have a nice day!
