Review Policy

The Reading Cave is a YA book review blog. YA books are geared to 12-18 year old readers, although thankfully anyone can read them. I am a high school teacher who loves to talk about books to her students. This is partly why I read YA books, the other reason is that they are fun.
This blog will focus on book reviews, although you may see other post. It may take me a week to post a review or it could take me two days. Reviewing time does depend on several things: time of year (testing), my family, and well life in general. There are also weekly memes that I will try to do.

Currently Accepting

I am currently accepting select Young Adult books for review.  I accept ARCs, finished copies and e-books.  If your book is part of a series I may need the previous books.  Actual books are great, once I am done I tend to give them away to students.  I love reading e-books on my kindle.  If you would like to send me your book please contact me at
My blog is a YA blog, meaning I tend to read young adult books.  I am a high school teacher; my occupation has led me to read young adult fiction.  I do this so that I may recommend books to my students. 


I enjoy YA fiction in the following genres:

o   Paranormal

o   Paranormal Romance

o   Urban fantasy

o   Mystery

o   Contemporary

o   Dystopian

o   Steampunk


I will write a review for almost every young adult book I finish. Most reviews will also be posted on and Goodreads, though they may be modified. My reviews are written as if I am discussing the book with my friends or students. They are not meant to be objective literary critiques.

I write fair and honest reviews, but this does not mean I will always write positive reviews. My reviews are my opinion, and if I don’t enjoy a book then my review will reflect that.  I however, will not bash the book. I will strive to explain why the book in question did not work for me personally. I do NOT write nasty or snarky commentary.
Sometimes, getting through a book is not worth it.  If this happens, I reserve the right to not finish a book and not review it. While this is rare it does happen.  Never fear, you will be contacted explaining why a review never went up.


I am more than happy to host author interviews, character interviews and giveaways for your book.
