The Starry-Eyed Revue focuses primarily on the Young Adult genre, with some Middle Grade titles thrown in for good measure.  This blog is family-friendly, and you will not find any adult or explicit content here that would not be suitable for a younger audience without prior warning at the beginning of a post.

The views expressed in our reviews are our own honest opinions.  We do not receive compensation for my reviews, be they good or bad.  We strive to provide fair and sincere reviews and to keep them spoiler-free.  We will make every effort to read and review a book within the three weeks before or after it's release date for books that have not yet been released or as soon as possible for books that are already on booksellers' shelves.  However, we can accomodate special requests, should you have a preference as to what date the review is posted, if it is in our power to do so.

We post our reviews here on the blog as well as on Goodreads.  We will also oblige any requests to post the review on Amazon or other booksellers' websites.  We will also link to my reviews via Twitter.  In addition to reviews, we are also happy to host giveaways, interviews, and guest posts.

In our reviews, we include the following information:
  • cover art
  • the book's details:  title, author, if it is associated with a series, publisher, publication date, and the source of the media
  • links to purchase the title from Amazon and Barnes & Noble, as well as a link to the book on Goodreads
  • a synopsis of the book, taken from Goodreads
  • my review - a look at the characters, plot, and setting, as well as my opinions on each and on the book as a whole
  • a starred rating, one to five
  • any additional media related to the title:  book trailers, audio clips, etc.
We accept bound ARCs, ebooks, finished copies, and audiobooks (CD or MP3) for review.  We don't normally read or review self-published titles, but we will consider these on a case-by-case basis.

If you have any further questions or would like to request a review of your book, please email us at mrsjbruce(at)gmail(dot)com.

Thank you for considering The Starry-Eyed Revue!

  3. Jen- sorry to leave this in the comments. I wanted to make sure you got my review request that I sent on July 17th and that it didn't get caught in SPAM. I pasted the email below.
    Hi! I'd like to see if you want to review my YA paranormal series, Gemini Rising. Here is a link to my Goodreads site where there are some awesome reviews coming in! I promise, IT'S DIFFERENT! No vamps, no wolves. My book focuses on mother earth's anger witht he human race and what might happen once we have worn out our welcome.

    I would be happy to provide an ebook copy if you are interested and perhaps do a giveaway with an a print book and a swag pack. Please let me know if you're interested!
