Please note: Due to time constraints, I am unable to accept requests for self-published novels. Thank you for understanding, and I apologize for the inconvenience.

Hi authors, publicists and fellow readers! Thank you for taking the time to visit Stories on Stage!

As an avid reader, I am always open to review requests from authors or review recommendations from fellow readers / reviewers. If you have a particular book you want me to read and review, please feel free to contact me by emailing me (zoelovesbooks@gmail.com) or by messaging me on Goodreads. When doing so, it would be appreciated if you were able to give me the following information:

  • Book Title and Author
  • Synopsis
  • Cover
  • Time frame you are looking for review to be posted

When contacting me about reviews, please note that I only read Young-Adult Books. My preferred genres are as follows:

  • Dystopia
  • Science Fiction
  • Contemporary
  • Historical Fiction
  • Fantasy

Genres I tend to avoid include:

  • New Adult
  • Nonfiction
  • Paranormal (hit or miss genre with me)
  • Sports Books (unless it regards gymnastics)

Timeframe: When contacting me about reviews, please note that with my current stack of books, it may take me 3-6 weeks to before I have a chance to start your books. If you have a certain date you need my review by, please mention this while contacting me and I will try my hardest to have my review finished by your deadline.

Please note that ALL of my reviews reflect my personal opinions. My personal rating system goes as follows:

  • 5 stars: Enjoyed it immensely; instant favorite.
  • 4 stars: Loved it, but it’s not quite a favorite.
  • 3 stars: Liked it.
  • 2 stars: Bad, but not horrid.
  • 1 star: Avoid this book at all costs!

All book reviews will be posted here on my blog as well as on my Goodreads profile.

ONE LAST NOTE: Please note that as much as I want to, I am not able to accept every review request / recommendation.

Again, thank you in advance for considering me as a reviewer for your book!
