Review Policy

Snow White Hates Apples accepts requests for reviews and promotions from authors and publishers for English books only.

In accordance to the Rating System (👈 please read this first!), all reviews will be posted on this blog, my Goodreads and Storygraph. Depending on the book format, pictures of the book and the review will also be posted on my Instagram. If you’d like me to post my review on another site, please let me know.

Reading Preferences

As mentioned in my ‘About’ page, I’m a huge fan of gray characters, antiheroes, characters who aren’t afraid to be vicious and cunning, angst, tragedy and BAMFs. I’m also fine with graphic descriptions of gore and violence, appreciate diverse characters, and adore the theme of Monsters VS Humans.

When it comes to reading preferences, I…

Highly Prefer

  • Young Adult – fantasy, action, horror, thriller, supernatural, paranormal
  • Thriller – psychological, suspense, action, mystery
  • Fiction – Asian literature, magical realism, psychological

Would Consider Reading

  • Light Novels, Short Stories, Novellas – that has any of the elements stated above at ‘Highly Prefer’
  • Graphic Novels – that has any of the elements stated above at ‘Highly Prefer’
  • Young Adult – contemporary, historical

Would Not Read

  • Poetry*
  • Erotica
  • New Adult*
  • Children’s Fiction*
  • Middle Grade Fiction*
  • Religious Texts
  • Memoirs/Biographies
  • Essays, both academic and not
  • And, most (if not all) non-fiction books

*Although I do occasionally read and review these genres, I prefer not to.

Please Note

1. Reviews for ARCs will be posted before their publication date whenever possible, unless explicitly mentioned that it’s crucial to have the review out prior to the publication date. Reviews for other books can also be posted within a specific time frame as long as it’s mentioned.

2. If the book belongs to a series and cannot be read as a standalone, I may need the previous book(s) as well in order to write a more holistic review.

3. Should my rating of a title be less than 2 stars, I will contact you and provide the review draft so we can discuss on how to proceed.
