Review Policy

Hi, this is Inah and Jem of The Bibliophile Confessions!

If you are an author or publisher and interested in having your books reviewed, please do consider reading on.

Age Group/Genre: Our book preferences are generally flexible but we only accept Young Adult. Middle Grade and New Adult books are negotiable.  We mostly read contemporary fiction, chick-lits, dystopian and occassionally, paranormal or fantasy.

Format: We accept ARCs and published copies in physical or digital (epub or mobi) edition.

Rating System: We rate books in 1-5 stars, 5 stars being the highest.

1 star – No. Just no.
2 stars – It’s good but I was barely thrilled to read it.
3 stars – I like it but I had some issues with it.
4 stars – It’s a great read.
5 stars – I’m absolutely in love with it. A must buy. Definitely recommended.

Promotion: We will publish the reviews here in my blog, as well as Goodreads and Amazon (if applicable).  The posts will be promoted in our Twitter, Facebook Page and Tumblr accounts.

Inah is also a Staff Reviewer at YA Books Central, which means reviews for YA novels are most likely to be cross-posted on the site.


Please be guided that our reviews can take as much time as possible, two to four months. Time frames usually depend on our personal schedule (academics, work schedule, etc.), but if you need a specific time frame for the review, please do indicate in the request. We give our utmost honesty when reviewing books while maintaining to be fair to the authors and the readers. We will be as objective as we can in pointing out the positives and negatives of the book.

ARC copies will obviously be prioritized. Also, if you are planning to send a hard copy of your book, please do take note that we both live in the Philippines. If you wish to ship your book, it will also be prioritized.

All book review requests should be sent to Please include the summary, book cover, Goodreads link, and your pitch as to why you think the book will be a great fit for the blog.

We have also worked with different publishers for Interviews, Book Launches, Blog Tours and other Feature Posts. If you want to work with us, send us an email!
