Review Policy

We love to read and review books! Here at Shih Tzus and Book Reviews, we share our thoughts and opinions on the books we have read. We are also available to be a part of blog tours and cover reveals along with helping with book releases, signings, events, giveaways, and character and/or author interviews.

We may, from time to time, use a guest reviewer, who will be acting on behalf of Shih Tzus and Book Reviews.

We love to read books in the following genres:

  • Young Adult/New Adult Romance
  • Historical Fiction
  • Adult Contemporary
  • Suspense/Thriller/Mysteries
  • Science Fiction/Dystopian

If your book falls into one of these genres, we would be honored to read and review your book. Please note we do not only read and review ARCs…we purchase many of the books we read and review.  If we receive a copy in exchange for a review, we will clearly state it in the review.  All opinions are our own.

Please email your submission to and include the following:

  1. Title
  2. Author
  3. Genre
  4. Book description, (This is very important.  We get many requests per day and unfortunately do not have the time to look up all books on Goodreads.)
  5. Release Date & Time frame to read
  6. What you are needing/wanting us to do
  7. If we agree to a review, our preferred reading format is hardcovers and paperbacks but we also have e-readers if needed.

At any given time, we may have a lengthy reading list so we can’t accept every book for review. When we do read your book, know that we always review it with honesty and with respect. If we accept your book and are not able to provide a review or cannot give it a good rating, we will contact you directly to provide you with feedback. We realize that each book is unique and while we might not LOVE it, someone else will. Therefore, we will never be mean-spirited or harsh in our reviews, only honestly stating our opinion. We do not accept compensation for a positive review. We reserve the right to not finish an ARC or review copy, and also not post a review if we do not feel comfortable doing so.

We publish our reviews on our blog to subscribers. We also share it on our Facebook page and Twitter, on Goodreads and Amazon. We will let you know when your book’s review has been posted.

Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to be a part of this journey with you! We are so honored that you have considered us to review your work or to help in other areas.
