About Me & Book Review Policy

Hello and welcome to my blog, Holed Up In A Book.  For this blog, I will mainly focus on reviewing YA novels and on occasion, Adult fiction as well.  I used to have another blog a few years ago (quite successfully, if I do say so myself) but stopped due to life being so hectic.  I have decided to return to the blogosphere and will start to post up reviews once more.

Readers and viewers, feel free to email me at holedupinabook AT or comment in any of my blog posts.

Authors and publishers, please email me at holedupinabook AT if you feel that you have a novel that will pique my interest.  I cannot, of course, guarantee that all books I receive will be reviewed on this site if I later decide that the book is not in my interest.  However, I will try my best to review most of the books that come my way.

Please note that if I don't/couldn't finish your book, I will not review it because it's not fair to read a review from someone who didn't read the book in its entirety. Also note that if this is a digital or audio copy of your book, it will not be mentioned during my Monthly Summary posts and/or Book Haul videos as those are reserved to hard copy novels. 

Also please note that due to volume in requests, I am no longer accepting digital copies for reviews. Though there are exceptions... 

Reviews and posts are posted five days a week - Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 4PM ET and Saturday and Sunday at 1PM ET. 

Don't forget to check out my YouTube Channel called Shut Up & Read. I try to upload videos at least 2x a week with variance due to my personal schedules but all posts will be bookish or movie related so subscribe to stay tuned! 

For questions regarding the YouTube channel, please reach out to emilyxsteph AT

With that being said, I hope you take a look around and enjoy my reviews!
