Review Policies

Necessary Whimsy is currently accepting, at my own discretion, e- and print- ARCs, -galleys, and -books for review consideration from publicists, authors, agents, etc. You may contact me by email: necessarywhimsy@gmail.com. Please keep in mind:

  • I only respond to offers which interest me.
  • Please be aware that I do not commit to review any book I receive, with the exception being blog tours.
  • I do not promise to write about any book in a positive way.
  • I require at least two weeks from when I receive the book, by e-mail or otherwise, to the scheduled date of the review as part of any blog tour request. If I don’t receive the book at least 14 days before the post is scheduled, I will consider the agreed upon posting date voided and I cannot guarantee I will reschedule.
  • I accept guest posts and interviews. Please be aware I expect to receive something exclusive that will not be reprinted elsewhere.
While I receive many books for review, I will always give you my honest opinion regardless of the source.


I may collect information about blog readers in relation to giveaways; required information is only what I need to notify winners and provide them with the giveaway. Any other information requested is on a completely voluntary basis.
Any and all information collected is never sold or shared with a third party, unless said party is involved in a giveaway (i.e., the item is being shipped by a publisher or artist).
After a month, all collected information is deleted. If you would like you information deleted sooner than this please provide me with an email request (necessarywhimsy@gmail.com). Please be sure to mention what giveaway you entered.

Guest Posting

Guest posters receive no material or monetary compensation. Guest posters retain all rights and liability attached to said posts. I do not alter or reproduce guest post material without permission.


I read every comment made and appreciate all of them. I do not moderate except in instances where I deem the comment to be trolling or spam.
