Work with me & Review Policies

First of all, Welcome to Drizzle & Hurricane Books! I’m really glad to see you’re interested in working with this blog. Before heading into technical details, a little presentation should be in order, just to see if you’re in the right place! πŸ™‚

The Blog


Drizzle & Hurricane Books was founded in late 2014 by Marie, a writing and communications graduate in love with young adult books. On this blog, you will find a lot of bookish talks, mostly focused on young adult books: book reviews, book discussions, special features and so on.

Occasionally, you will also be able to read other content such as traveling diaries, writing and others of life’s explorations in collaboration with Marie’s perfect sister you will find under the name Nyx.

πŸ“– Book reviews

I am currently NOT accepting book review requests. PLEASE read the guidelines below before contacting me.

 

Whether you’re an author, publisher or publicist,Β I would happily consider your book for review. For me to consider your request, please continue on reading the quick guidelines below.

My preferences

  • Young Adult Books only.
  • Accepting a lot of sub-genres : personal preference for contemporary, but I also consider for reviews fantasy, science-fiction, paranormal, dystopia.
  • I both accept for review physical and digital copies. Before sending a physical copy, you should note that I am living in France.

My reviewing way

  • You can be certain to get my honest and unbiaised opinion about the book you send out for review. Whether I enjoyed it or not, I always try to be as constructive as I can in every single of my reviews.
  • I use stars-ratings, for details about my rating system, head over to this page.
  • All my reviews will include details on the book: author, title, synopsis, cover, publication date and a link to its Goodreads page.
  • All of my reviews are cross-posted on Goodreads and promoted on social media (Twitter). If you want me to cross-post it elsewhere, let me know.
  • ARCs and early copies of books reviews won’t be reviewed on the blog before the month of its publication at best, most likely reviewed in a time-frame of one/two weeks prior or after the release date.

Not all requests will be accepted. I deal with requests inΒ case-by-case and due to the amount of emails I can get, please be patient. If you’re not following any of the guidelines stated above, you might not get an answer from me at all. Please read carefully so that none of us loses our time 😊

πŸ’Ό Bookish promotion & partnerships with publishers

Aside from book reviews, we can consider another kind of fun post for you to promote your books on my blog. I won’t be accepting guest posts though.
If you are a publisher or a publicist and think that both the books you’re promoting and the ones I talk about on my blog are a good fit, we can discuss partnership options, including book reviews, book features and special promotions.
E-mail me to chat about it!

🎁 Hosting giveaways

I am also opened to hosting giveaways for books on the blog. Please note that I am only opened to hosting giveaways for books fitting my preferences stated above, meaning young adult books only.

You, as the sponsor of the giveaway, may choose the entries and prices available. As an international reader myself, please note that I will be open to host giveaways that are opened internationally only, as I believe in giving the chances to readers all across the world to read books. Some solutions to ship books internationally include online websites such as Book Depository, Wordery…

Once the giveaway is over and the winner has been picked, you are responsible for the shipping. I am not responsible, should the book be lost in the mail.
