Ashleigh is currently open to receiving books for review. Please see below for more details on what she prefers to review and her personal policies.

Usagi: I’m happy to accept any books you may send me, though please keep the following in mind:

☆ The genres I prefer and review the most are YA, sci-fi/fantasy, English-translated Japanese literature/manga, and Japanese language literature/manga.  Genres I will not touch include Christian lit, traditional romance (note: Harlequin Teen? You’re the exception here!), and chick lit – please do NOT send me these genres as I will not read them. Sorry. (Again, Harlequin Teen is the only publisher that is the exception to this rule!)

☆ I will read/keep both ARCs/galleys and officially released copies of whatever you might send me. Net-galley is the only exception to this rule, as their system is a lending system not unlike a library. I do prefer having the hardcopy in my hand – it usually gets read and reviewed faster than e-arcs (which are harder on the eyes, and take longer to be read and reviewed).

☆ I will be honest. Brutally honest. I usually hold nothing back in reviews, so if I find flaws or complaints, I will voice them. If you’re looking for lipservice for your book and I find it badly written,  you might want to look for it elsewhere as I will be giving you my honest opinion.

☆ I usually try to keep my reviews easy-to-read and concise, so sometimes they end up being short. But fear not! They will be longer than a book flap blurb.

☆ Once I receive your ARC, depending on how many books I’m reading at a time, I can’t promise it’ll be the first one read and reviewed in the pile. But I will get to it.

Pretty simple, right? For further information and/or questions, please email me at usagiko at gmail dot com.

Ashleigh: Like Usagi, I’m more than happy to consider any review requests I get from publicists, publishers, and authors. Here are my guidelines:

☆ I read YA of all genres: contemporary, historical, paranormal, magical realism, fantasy and beyond. Dystopian YA is the one kind of YA I will not accept for review unless it’s the sequel to one of the rare dystopian novels I enjoyed (for instance, I loved What’s Left of Me by Kat Zhang and would readily agree if offered its sequels) or if I’ve expressly stated I want to read it.

☆ I do not accept adult novels, nonfiction, or self-published novels. However, like with dystopian YA, I will accept a novel from one of these categories if I’ve expressly stated somewhere that I want to review it.

☆ I accept ARCs and/or novels in print format or ebook format (my preferred file types for ebooks being EPUB and MOBI).

  • From May 1st to August 10th, I have no preference between formats.
  • From August 11th to April 30th, I prefer ebooks in most cases due to this being when I live away at college. Between a difficult mailroom system that sometimes “steals” my books (someone forgets to give me a package slip and I have to fight with the people at the front desk) and how the weight of all the review books would accumulate over time, I simply find ebooks easier to take during this time.

☆ My reviews, like Usagi’s, are brutally honest and 100% my opinion. I don’t accept, receive, or consider any compensation and will not Be Nice for arbitrary reasons. I lean toward an analytical style in my reviews and always read through a feminist lens.

☆ ARCs I receive for review become a priority and I will do my best to have a review posted at least a week in advance of the release date. Usually, it’s done within two, but fluctuations will happen due to mine and Usagi’s posting schedule and my reading schedule.

If you’re still interested in pitching me a book or books for review or would like to add me to your mailing list (the latter being something I will likely only agree to for somewhat larger publishers), please email me at theyakitten@gmail.com and I will almost always respond within a week if interested.


We are open to being on them once again starting SEPTEMBER 2013. Please give either of us an email. NO SELF-PUBLISHED AUTHORS, PLEASE (UNLESS WE ALREADY HAVE A PAST RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU OR WE APPROACH YOU FIRST).
