Read for Bookish Brews!
Are you interested in reading and reviewing free indie books for Bookish Brews? I have so many review requests that I’d love to read but just can’t do it all by myself. Since Bookish Brews is here to celebrate marginalized authors, I am also looking for diverse reviewers. If you want to read some free books, please shoot me an email telling me a little bit about yourself!
This can be cover reveal requests, review requests, book spotlight requests, sponsored posts, guest posts etc. I cover all of these below. Please read the section that applies to you before submitting a request. Don’t forget to check out Bookish Brews about page to make sure your book is a good fit.
Review requests are back open!
Make sure to read my review disclosure and read through the form before submitting your book for request – it saves both of us time!
Please understand that I receive a lot of review requests and can only take on a small fraction of the requests that I get because I just don’t have the time to read them all
If you’re an author/publicist and are looking for people to read and review your book, feel free to submit a review request. I look over each request to see if it meets the theme of Bookish Brews, my reading preferences, and my reading schedule. I’m on a personal lifelong mission of reading books by authors from historically marginalized groups, and I want to share that journey with my followers in hopes that they are encouraged to do the same, even by just adding a little bit of intentionality.
If you are a publicist who is pitching multiple books at once, feel free to just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, you don’t have to fill out the form for each book.
Pro tip: send all the requested information & the book (if you only have an ebook available) in the request & in epub or mobi format. Even if I can’t take on the book right now, it is possible I will come across a time where I go back and read them at a much later date. If the book is not included in the email the chance that I will read your submission as part of a backlog is nonexistent.

I know sending physical books can get expensive, especially without a guarantee that I am able to feature your book. I’m absolutely open to reading epub or mobi files, especially from indie authors. You do not have to send me a physical copy to be considered. However, for those of you who want to send a physical book, you can send them to the following address:
407 W. Imperial Hwy
Suite H #723
Brea, CA 92821-4803
Unfortunately, I cannot read every book that I receive a request for. I pick and choose the ones that I think fit me and my blog the best with the amount of time that I have at any given moment. I can also not guarantee that a review will be posted within a certain time frame (unless I have personally offered).
Please understand that I get quite a few review requests and not hearing back from me does not mean your book is not good and it doesn’t even mean that I don’t want to read it. I just physically can’t read them all. I regretfully can’t even choose all of the books that I think I would enjoy. If I can’t review your book, don’t give up!
Considering my mission at Bookish Brews is to celebrate marginalized authors, I do not post negative reviews on my site. If I do not enjoy the book, it will not get exposure on Bookish Brews. Therefore if I confirm that I would like to read your book, that still is not a guarantee that I will review it. However, it could be added to my Goodreads profile, which does have a small following.
Please note: it is a goal of mine to one day have a team of reviewers for Bookish Brews. If you are giving me your book to potentially review, it may be reviewed by someone on my team rather than myself. Rest assured that it would only be given to a reviewer with the expressed intent to read and review your book specifically for Bookish Brews and Bookish Brews alone. By submitting a book to Bookish Brews, you are also giving permission for it to potentially be read by a Bookish Brews reviewer.
If you are looking for guaranteed exposure, and your book fits in with the mission of diversity and inclusion, you can also email me to see if we can collaborate on a sponsored post. If I think your book fits with Bookish Brews, of course.

Cover Reveal Request
As always, please make sure the book you are requesting a cover reveal for fits with the mission of Bookish Brews. Once you are positive that it would fit here, please complete two steps for a cover reveal request:
- email me a press release to email@example.com
- fill out the same review request form.
- You do not have to attach a copy of the book if you are requesting a cover reveal (though it is appreciated!)
Please make sure that the cover reveal is exclusive to Bookish Brews (otherwise it isn’t really a reveal!) and, again, that the book fits with our mission.
If you’re interested in doing a guest post on Bookish Brews, send me an email with your idea! I’m willing to accept book reviews, book lists (as collaborations), bookish discussions, author interviews, and more. As long as the books mentioned are all diverse. Please look at how I format my reviews and lists before writing your post.
If you’re interested in sponsoring a post on Bookish Brews, feel free to shoot me an email with all the information. I reserve the right to refuse inquiries should I not feel they are appropriate for my blog. Before submitting an inquiry, please check that it fits in with the theme of Bookish Brews! I’m here to promote diversity in books, and to provide a space where people feel comfortable picking up any book listed on this site and knowing that it is diverse in some way.
This can look like this:
- A book spotlight
- A short essay by the author
