Review Policy

***At this time Bitch Lit Blog is no longer taking review requests. For further information please read here***

Bitch Lit Blog is happy to review books by women, about women, and for women. This generally means women’s literature with a specific interest in chick-lit.

Chick-lit is multifacited and therefore I am interested in exploring as many sub-genres as possible including (but not limited to):

  • Nanny Lit
  • Mommy Lit
  • Confessionals
  • Bitch Lit
  • Hollywood Lit
  • New York Lit
  • Lad Lit
  • Christian Lit
  • Multi-cultural Lit

Bound and eBook review copies are welcome. I read on a Sony eReader and therefore prefer .epub files but will also accept .pdf files.

Review Policy:

  1. Generally a review will be released within 4-6 weeks of receiving a review copy. At times this may take longer.
  2. I do not guarantee a review and reserve the right to refuse to review.
  3. I do not guarantee a positive review. All reviews are my own opinion and therefore will result in negative reviews from time to time.
  4. I strive to be fair, honest, and constructive when reviewing.
  5. I am willing to post reviews on other websites such as Amazon or Smashwords.
  6. Because this blog is about evaluating chick lit from a feminist perspective, authors/publishers/agents should be advised that reviews will likely include a feminist analysis.

A Note about Numerical Ratings:

In conjunction with a written review I also provide numerical ratings out of 5. This rating is to be taken as a reading recommendation and considered to be taken as follows:

  • 1 – Don’t Bother.
  • 2 – Bad, But I Finished It.
  • 3 – Liked It, But You Might Like It More.
  • 4 – Enjoyed Reading It, Would Recommend You Do the Same.
  • 5 – Holy Crap You Need to Read This So We Can Talk About It! Here, Take Mine.
