Review Policy

Hello! Thank you for visiting my blog Books and Bees. Please take the time to read my review policy found below if you have interests in letting me review your book.


  • I am currently accepting books both in electronic (.epub and .mobi formats only) and print formats. However, please be aware that print formats will be given more priority compared to electronic formats.
  • When giving out a physical copy of a book, please note that I live in the Philippines and I will not shoulder any shipping fee that might be spent in shipping the book to me.
  • Please give me time to read your book and write a review on it. It will usually take me a week to a month. Reviews will be posted here in my blog as well as on Goodreads. Reviews will be posted on Amazon upon request. I will be giving out honest reviews. Giving me your book does not entail me giving it a positive review. With that said, in case of a negative review and DNFs, I will give my reasons as to why I gave such a review.
  • When accepted, be ensured that a copy of the book will not be posted on any site and be sold anywhere. However, excerpts from the book may be used.
  • I may decline a valid request due to school works and such.
  • I review almost all genres of YA literature. Please check the list of my genre or category preferences found below.
  • You can email me your review requests at booksnbeesofbea(at)gmail(dot)com. Please include the title, author and a brief description of the book. Please also include a warning if triggering factors such as suicide and rape are included in your book. If applicable, please also add when you would like the review of your book to be finished and posted.
