Review Policy

My reviews are 100% my personal, honest opinion; as far as format goes, they are largely informal and can vary significantly in length and depth, depending on how much I need to gush or vent. My posts on this site are also linked to my accounts on Instagram, LibraryThing, Litsy, and tumblr. Unless otherwise noted, my books are my own purchases or gifted to me by family or friends. I do receive ARCs through my job, and occasionally through LibraryThing’s Early Reviewers. As noted elsewhere, my opinions and reviews are my own, and do not represent those of my employer Barnes & Noble nor any of the company’s other employees.

I am currently ACCEPTING books to review. If you would like me to read yours, please send me an email at juni@narrativefiligree.com with the following information:

  • Title, author, publisher
  • Genre, length
  • Brief synopsis
  • Trigger warnings for the following content: explicit gore or physical abuse, rape, self-harm, suicide/suicidal ideation, torture

I accept physical copies only, with the exception of works under 50,000 words, which I will accept as PDFs. I can only accept books in English.

Genres I love include Fantasy, Young Adult/Teen Fantasy, and Historical Fiction. I also enjoy Contemporary Fiction, “soft” Science Fiction, Paranormal Fantasy, Mystery, and Poetry. Non-fiction I enjoy is typically History, Biography with historical subjects, and other non-fiction aimed at a lay audience.

I will not read Erotica, Romance, Horror, Christian Fiction, or any works that promote or glorify Nazism, fascism, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, misogyny, pedophilia, homophobia, and similar hateful bullshit.
