Review Policy

Words of Mystery is currently open to accepting the following types of books for review:

Cozy and procedural mysteries
Historical Fiction, Contemporary YA, and Adult Fiction as well as some Literary Fiction featuring diverse voices especially from Asian writers as well as the occasional Canadian writer
Comic Books / Graphic Novels
Manga (Japanese comics)
Memoirs (in particular those that have to do with travel)

Unfortunately, for the time being, I am generally unable to accept self-published books as well as any books that do not fall within my genres of interest for review.

If you have any blog tours or titles that fall within one of my preferred genres and that you think I’ll be interested in, feel free to contact me at




Disclaimer: Please note that I receive many books for review, and cannot guarantee that I will review every book that is sent to me. I will, however, guarantee that if I do not personally review or read the book you send, I will pass it onto someone who will.
