About

Now open to requests, very limited! Will only accept physical copies for review regardless of the genre!

Welcome to Literature Approved! My name is Rayleigh and I’m the definition of a book addict! I’m a reader by nature, and because of all the time I spend reading I’ve never been real picky with genres so I find myself reading, and thoroughly enjoying, pretty much anything; though there are the favorites 😉  I have been a book reviewer/blogger for almost 5 years now (on a different site) and have reviewed over 300 books total. I am in the process of moving all of those reviews here onto Literature Approved so things will go either really slowly or really quickly, depending on how many new requests I accept.

Rating and Reviewing*

My reviewing and rating is based on Christian morals however I do not limit myself to only Christian books. My goal is to provide Christian-based reviews for popular literature as well as to find and promote Indie authors who deserve some spotlight.  I read and review ALL books on a “first come, first serve” basis and will always mention negative content as well as the positive, regardless of my rating.

When reviewing YA, Adult fiction, and/or Nonfiction: 

If rated 3 stars or above, I generally like to focus on the positive elements of the book, but I will ALWAYS mention cussing, inappropriate sexual scenes/comments, graphic violence, etc. that was present (if any) even though I may have liked the book in general. If rated 2 and below, then I obviously was not fond of it and the review will be more focused on explaining the low rating, though I generally try to be gracious in negative reviews by mentioning the few (if any) aspects of the book that I did like.

For children’s books:

I rate and review based off of family qualities and learning opportunities. In my opinion, a book read to a child needs to be more than just a story; it needs to have lessons on that child’s level, well-done pictures, and to have engaging writing. Kids need to be read to in order for them to grasp a love for learning and reading at a young age, and the books that I read and review will be rated on how useful to the children they are.

*I would like to make a note that I list ALL BOOKS (WHETHER APPROVED OR DISAPPROVED) ON THE GENRE PAGES. So, if you see a book listed on a page, please do not assume that it was approved; I just have them listed so their reviews can be easily found.

Contact/Connect with Me

I am constantly reading and reviewing new books, so if you have a specific book you would like me to review. Or, for authors, if you are in need of a review for your book and would like to send me a copy; you can shoot me an email at TypeWritersHeart(at)gmail(dot)com.

I cannot guarantee that I will accept all requests because of either lack of time, interest, and/or whether or not the book is morally acceptable; however I do welcome getting requests and encourage you to reach out to me if you seek a review 🙂

Thanks so much for stopping by Literature Approved and I do hope that my reviews will be beneficial to you; after-all, reviews are written for future readers, not the ones who have already read 😉

Reviewing on other sites:

always post my review on Amazon as well as Goodreads so there is no need to ask me to do so in your inquiry email. Also, I only post reviews on Amazon and Goodreads (and here of course) so please don’t ask for other websites (Barnes&Noble is the only exception upon request).

All of my reviews will be shared ONCE on Facebook, Instagram, Google+, Twitter and Pinterest 🙂 Thanks!

Additional Advertising: 

If you would like me to give your book a little extra attention (if above 3 star rating), for $5* I will:

-Feature your book on the sidebar for 2 months

-Share the review 4 more times over the course of the 2 months (with specially made quote images and a more personal message) on the above mentioned social media platforms.

-Send you the links to the reviews and shares for verification as well as for you to share as you see fit.
