Do you write books set in destinations? Please read over The Uncorked Librarian’s Book Review Policy before requesting reviews and services.
The Uncorked Librarian is currently accepting extremely limited advanced reading copies (ARCs), review copies of books, and newer titles issued no later than 1 year after the publication date.
On occasion, we will make an exception for an earlier released title.
Please know that we no longer write single article book reviews. All ARCs and gifted books will be used for round-up reading lists only.
These compilation book lists circulate much better and see higher traffic to benefit all parties.
Themed reading lists also have a much longer shelf life — no pun intended. We update book lists throughout the year.
Before you reach out to Christine at hello [at] theuncorkedlibrarian [dot] com, please read over our complete Book Review Policy.

Where TUL Shares Book Reviews
We love sharing books with readers all over the world.
Below are a few of the methods we use to get the word out about a worthy title.
We also appreciate when authors and publishers share our links as well as tag The Uncorked Librarian (@theuncorkedlibrarian; Twitter @theuncorkedlib).
Please let us know if and where you quote us on your marketing materials.
Limitations To Reviewing
We love reading, but unfortunately, we cannot accept every request to review.
We will consider all email queries but also cannot promise to respond to every email.
If you have not heard from us in a timely fashion, please assume that we are unable to accept your request for a title at that particular time. Please only email us once per request.
Please do not spam us or add us to your mailing list without permission.
If we agree to review your title, know that we may review the book within a week or even months of receiving our copy. We may also choose not to review at all.
Book Review Policy Disclaimer
By contacting us with a request to review, you acknowledge and respect that we are obligated to write our honest opinions.
All assessments are our own and are not meant to be biased or cause harm in any way.
Upon receiving and reading a title, if a book is poorly edited, in bad taste, or does not catch our interest, we reserve the right to decline a review. We may or may not inform you in regards to this.
Are You Ready To Work Together To Promote The Next Great Read?
When writing a book request, please be sure to include:
- Title, author, publisher, publication date, and summary of the book
- How your book fits with the mission and niche of TUL
- An official book cover image from you and/or permission from you/your publisher to use the cover in a responsible manner across social media (i.e. Pinterest pins).
