Review Policy

Girl In The Woods Reviews is a review site and was launched in August 2012. It's run by me, Chloe and my friend and partner, Elicia who decided to hop on after she discovered that I was starting a book blog. We focus on many genres but specifically and mainly Young Adult books. 

All reviews on this blog are posted on Goodreads

We are willing to accept books in exchange for honest reviews being posted on Goodreads or other sites. Unfortunately we won't be able to post reviews on Amazon because for some reason the site says that the books aren't available for Asia and Pacific countries, and we live in Malaysia. Sorry for this inconvenience! However, other sites like B&N or Smashwords are possible. If you are a publisher or an author and would like us to review a book, please make sure you accept our details and preferences. 

As this is a YA book blog. We are happy to accept any YA books for review, especially falling under the categories below: 

  • Fiction
  • Action
  • Fantasy
  • Adventure
  • Sci-fi
  • Thriller & Suspense
  • Contemporary
  • Mystery
  • Paranormal
  • Dark Fantasy
  • Romance

The YA books we are happy to review are not limited to these genres, but we're more likely to review any book with the categories above which contains at least one or more aspect of above.

Please also be aware that we do not  review adult books.

We accept both physical books* and e-books (PDF and Epub formats only) and also accept digital copies from NetGalley

To request a review, or ask any questions, please e-mail to our official e-mail address ( If there is a deadline to be posted on, be sure to include details about the date in the e-mail. 

* NOTE ~ We live in Malaysia so there will complications. But we still accept e-books (PDF and Epub formats only)
