Review Policy

Saturday, June 28, 2014
Hi there! Thank you so much for considering to have your book featured on our blog!

Fathomless Reveries is co-owned by two bloggers, Pauline and Dyane. Some books may be reviewed by the both of us, and others by just one of us. This doesn't mean that we will always have the same opinions for the same books, though. Expect that there will be times wherein one of us will love the book, while the other won't really like it. It does happen. :)

We give out our honest reviews and do not sugarcoat our thoughts. However, a negative rating doesn't mean we suggest that people don't read the book anymore, nor is it an attack towards the author. Likewise, a positive review doesn't mean we'll love all books by the same author.


We check our email almost everyday, so please expect a reply within a week at most. If you don't receive a reply within a week, it is most likely because you didn't read our review policy, follow the format provided below or the book is not within our taste. Although we are open to requests, we have the right to decline your offer. Please advise us if you don't want us to post a review of your book with a rating of under 3 stars. We are also open to featuring authors via guest posts and interviews. We love posting spotlights, whether they be cover reveals, blurbs, giveaways, playlists, or other fun stuff. We'd also love to join blog tours, so please do not hesitate to contact us! :D

Book Genres

We mostly review YA/NA and Contemporary Romance books. If your book involves music, time travel and/or Greek mythology, it'll most likely get accepted, too. We also read a little bit of other genres, but we tend to be very picky when it comes to those, so send requests at your own risk! ;)

Time Frame

Even if we accept your request to review your book, we would like to clarify that there is no guarantee on when we can post the review. We give priority to the blog, but we also have a lot of schoolwork to do, so please bear with us. Anyway, we will still do our best to post a review as soon as possible, and if possible, a date close to the release date of the book. We will email or tweet you once our review post is up! :)

We also post our reviews in Goodreads, but if you want us to post it elsewhere (e.g. Amazon) please don't hesitate to tell us. :D

Accepted Formats

We'd love physical copies - paperbacks, hardbounds, or ARCs - but please note that we live in the Philippines. We are also open to eGalleys under the ePub format, but physical copies will be prioritized.

Also, if it is a part of a series, please make sure that we've read it, or the titles that precede it are sent as well.

Request Format

Please include the following:
  1. Title of the Book
  2. Author's Name
  3. Synopsis/Summary
  4. Genre(s) of the Book
  5. Link to Goodreads
  6. Who do you want to review your book? (Pauline, Dyane or both)
  7. Format of the book (Physical or ePub)
  8. Twitter handle, if possible
If a review request is sent to our email, please have "Review Request: Title of the Book" as your Subject Title.

Rating System

We do give out half stars, especially if we're indecisive on which rating we should rate the book with.

1 Star: Did not finish / Did not like it
2 Stars: Uh. It was okay. There were a lot of rants though.
3 Stars: I liked it. It was nice, but it could have been better.
4 Stars: Really really liked it. It was awesome!
5 Stars: It was amazing! Really had a great book hangover. I'd really really really recommend reading this one!
