I accept Young Adult and Middle Grade books for review in the following genres:

  1. Fantasy
  2. Science Fiction
  3. Mystery
  4. Horror
  5. Contemporary

If your genre isn’t covered here, this blog and my Goodreads account will give you a good idea of what types of books I’m interested in. I don’t review books with heavy religious undertones or non-fiction books.

Please note that I am not currently accepting requests for reviews.


I prefer to read hard copies, but also accept electronic copies preferably in .mobi or .epub formats.


My reviews are honest and written critically with a bit of humor and personality thrown in. I write like I speak/think for the most part, so you’ll get all my thoughts and feelings about the book on topics such as, but not limited to: character development, plot, prose, structure, tone and voice, worldbuilding, pacing, and overall emotional impact and enjoyment.

I give all books a rating using the simple 5 star system, but with lightsabers, obviously. I also use half lightsabers where necessary, because a lot of the time, my feelings will fall between two ratings (GOODREADS, GET ON THIS SYSTEM PLZ). I also include a bulleted list on why this book might be or might not be the book for you depending on tropes it contains or themes it explores or other elements within the book. Below you will find a rough lightsaber rating breakdown.


1/5: I didn’t like this book.

2/5: This book was alright, but I wouldn’t really recommend it.

3/5: This book was good for the most part.

4/5: I really liked this book and am happy to recommend it.

5/5: I loved this book and want everyone to read it!

In addition to being on the blog, my reviews are cross-posted to Goodreads, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble. I do reserve the right not to review a book if I so choose.


Send me an e-mail at diana.devault@gmail.com with ‘Review Request’ in the subject line along with your preferred dates for the review to be posted. If you have not gotten a reply in 2 weeks, unfortunately it usually means I am too busy to review.

I write reviews because I love to read in my spare time. I do work full time so please let me know if you need a review on or by a certain date so I can make sure I can accommodate your schedule. I generally post reviews within one month of reading the book. Reviews for unsolicited books are not guaranteed, though.
