General information

The Bookish God is currently accepting review requests for Middle Grade, Young Adult, New Adult and Adult books. These will be accepted based on synopsis, general information and personal preference. Please note: if the book submitted is part of a series, previous books should be made available to the reviewer.

We will upload our review to GoodReads and Amazon. If you wish for us to upload our review some place else, such as B&N or Waterstones, it needs to be specified in your request. We are flexible and determined to help authors and publishers with our work.

We accept physical and digital copies. Whether it’s ARCs or finished copies, we are more likely to accept a request that provides us with a physical copy for various reasons. However, we understand the costs of international shipping and will consider accepting digital copies from indie authors. Audiobooks are welcomed.


This is a guideline of the genres we might enjoy. Please, do not hesitate to send an email if you are not sure where your books lies within this guideline.

I accept books in the following genres:

  • Fantasy
  • Science Fiction
  • LGBTQ+
  • #OwnVoices Novels
  • Contemporary
  • Horror
  • Paranormal
  • Mystery
  • Action & Adventure
  • Graphic Novels
  • Historical Fiction

We might consider accepting Non-Fiction (Science, Anthropology, Theology, History, Paganism, etc…).

Please refrain from submitting books dealing with important issues such sexuality, gender, or mental health in a problematic manner.

Accepting books

If we accept a book, it means we have the intention to review it. However, we cannot always guarantee a review. There is a tiny little human running this place who’s got a full time job, and sometimes life gets too busy.

When we accept a book and discuss the finishing details with the author/publisher, we do it to the best of our abilities. 


Here at The Bookish God we believe that there is no one better to talk about their books than authors. That is why we offer three different add-on options to our review: a guest post, an interview and a giveaway.

Author Guest Posts and Interviews

This option is available to authors whose work we’ve previously enjoyed and/or it sparks special interest on us.


This option is given to authors/publishers who are doing a guest post or an interview with us. (ex. Interview+Giveaway, Guest Post+Giveaway)

The prize will have to be book-related.

Information I’ll need in order to run the giveaway:

  • Platform (Instagram, Twitter, blog, etc)
  • Format of the book (Hardcover, paperback, e-book, etc)
  • Shipping requirements (US, Europe, International, etc)
  • Duration of the giveaway
  • Entry Requirements
  • Additional information (photo of the prize, blurb, signed?, etc)
