Review Policy

Thank you for your interest in Books Speak Volumes! I am currently accepting books for review consideration. Although I typically seek out upcoming titles on my own, publishers and authors are welcome to reach out to me regarding books they believe meet my interests.

Things that make me swoon:

Genres I WILL review:

  • Literary fiction
  • Short stories
  • Historical fiction
  • Narrative nonfiction

Genres I will NOT review

  • Romance/erotica
  • Chick lit
  • Religious
  • Young adult
  • Sci-fi/fantasy
  • Crime/thriller

I do not currently accept self-published works.

Like any publication, I cannot guarantee to review every book sent my way. However, I will think carefully about whether a title is a good fit for this site and how to cover it in a fresh, honest, and engaging way.

If you believe you have a book that you think will interest me or have any questions about my policy, shoot me an email at leah [at]
