Grey Reads // Review Requests

Here is where you can send me review requests!

I am open to review requests, however, at this point I’m pretty good at determining what book is my kind of book so if I choose not to read a review request, please know that it’s not personal. I don’t want to waste my time or yours but agreeing to read a book I know I won’t enjoy.

Before making a request, I highly suggest reading some of the reviews I already have posted so that you can get a feel for my review style as it might not work for everyone.

If you don’t want a negative review, don’t send a request because my reviews will always be honest and you might not like what I have to say.

My General Book Vibes

⛈️ Fave Type of Character: morally grey characters, if a character is a broken asshole, who I would have no time for IRL, I probably love them

⛈️ Plot or World or Characters: character-driven books every time

⛈️ Tropes I Hate: love fixes everything, the ‘swoon-worthy’ but actually abusive love interest, I’m Not Like Other Girls™

⛈️ Tropes I Love: enemies to friends to lovers, sharp girls and soft boys, Full-Time Mess™ doing their best, cross-dressing girls with knives

⛈️ Here For It: pirates, witches, spies, hackers, Vikings

⛈️ Miss Me With That Shit: homophobia, sexism, racism, transphobia, xenophobia, fatphobia, ableism, incest, pedophilia, bury your gays, adding to mental illness stigma

Make Your Request Here

I try to always include accurate representation and content warnings in my reviews. So I would appreciate it if you included those in your request.

I do tend to swear in my reviews. If you don’t like that it’s probably best to find a different reviewer. However if you you give me a reason why you don’t me swearing in the review, I’ll consider it.

All reviews will be posted on blog and Goodreads.

Keep in mind, I have a Chronic Illness which means I might not always be able to meet your deadlines. My health always comes first.

Once you have submitted all the required information, I will review your request and decide if;

  1. I have the time to read it
  2. It fits my reading interests

I’ll respond to all requests via email.

If I really love your book I might provide a song I think goes with it, a photo (if hard copy is provided) I have taken personally, and I might even create some quote graphics and/or a mood-board!

All of which you are free to use also!
