Novel Novice: Book Review Policy

Novel Novice features primarily Young Adult literature, and select Middle Grade and children’s picture books. We very rarely review adult titles that would appeal to YA readers, but not often. We do NOT normally feature or review New Adult literature. Any adult titles we review or feature should at least be appropriate for teen readers.

We’re happy to consider YA books of any sub-genre: paranormal, contemporary, historical, etc.

We do not generally accept self-published books for review.

We also do not read or review e-books, and can only accept print books for review. (Sorry, but I’m old fashioned and don’t own an e-reader!)

Please e-mail sara.novelnovice@outlook.com to submit a book for review, or to request a mailing address. You can also fill out the contact form below. Be sure to include your contact information!

Please note that we cannot accept all book review submissions due to the number of pitches we receive, but we do our best to fit in a good variety!

WE STRONGLY ENCOURAGE YOU to consider pitching your book for a non-review feature on Novel Novice! See more details here.
