Review Policy

All the books reviewed on this blog are ones I have purchased, borrowed from the library, or received from a publisher either directly or via Goodreads/Netgalley. Unless otherwise noted, the book is from my own collection.

Acceptance of a book does not guarantee a review. When submitting for a review, please ensure a deadline for the review is mentioned, which will help me decide if I am able to accept a book in order to commit to a deadline.

Regardless of the source of the book, all reviews posted are my honest opinions and impressions.

I am open to receiving pitches from authors, publishers, and publicists. However, I do not promise to be able to agree to reading or reviewing every pitch sent my way, and will respond to emails as soon as possible in response to pitches. If I agree to review your book, I will require at least 3 months notice from the date of publishing.

Please use the contact form here to begin our conversation. Additionally, you can also follow me on Twitter or we can be friends on Goodreads.

What I will read:

Fiction: Literary, Contemporary, Fantasy, Horror, and Historical Fiction.

Nonfiction: Memoirs, Medically-oriented Memoirs, Feminism, Politics, History, and Wellness.

Preferred formats: ARCs, digital ARCs, books via Netgalley, and finished copies.

I will definitely recommend Kick Pain in the Kitchen to my patients: Those who are looking to avoid pharmaceutical treatment and those who want to combine western medicine with alternative therapies.
