Rating & Reviewing

As of October 18, 2018, our reviewing schedule has been filled entirely. You are still welcome to submit a review request, but we will not get back to you until the end of November or unless we have a tour cancelation. There is already a waiting list for December and all emails will be answered in order of the date received. Thank you for your patience and continued support! 

ALL books will be read and reviewed on a “first come, first serve” basis. When you send in a request for your book to be reviewed on Literature Approved, you are agreeing that any of the Contributor reviewers may read and review your book. For more details visit the Partner & Contributor Reviewers page.

Reviewing and rating is based on Christian morals however we do not review only Christian books. Our meaning of “Christian-based” review is:

To reveal morals portrayed in a story, as well as to make note of how high the graphic, sexual, and explicit language is, so that readers can choose books according to their personal and/or religious preferences.

 

YA, ADULT FICTION, AND/OR NONFICTION: 

If rated 3 stars or above, we focus on the positive elements of the book, but will ALWAYS mention cursing, sexual scenes/comments, graphic violence, etc. that was present (if any) even though we may have liked the book in general.

If rated 2 and below, then obviously, we were not fond of it and the review will be more focused on explaining the low rating, though we generally try to be gracious in negative reviews by mentioning the few (if any) aspects of the book that we did like.

 

CHILDREN’S BOOKS/MIDDLE GRADE:

We rate and review children’s books based off of family qualities and learning opportunities. In our 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. So the books that we read and review will be rated on how useful to the children they are, with 1 star being rubbish and 5 stars being very educational.

 

REVIEWING ON OTHER SITES:

We always post our reviews on AMAZON as well as GOODREADS so there is no need to ask us to do so in your inquiry email. Also, we 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 our reviews will be shared ONCE on Facebook, Instagram, Google+, Twitter and Pinterest 🙂 Thanks!
