Review Policy

I appreciate you thinking of Lemmon Avenue to review your book(s). Literature should be celebrated and buzzed about to all audiences. Books and writers are treated with respect on this blog. Readers should always do research about the books they are interested in reading and keep in mind that perhaps not all books will appeal to you, as I reader I definitely practice this.

This blog is meant to create awareness for books of all genres, books that I come across or that I’m reached out to review.

Lemmon Avenue supports diverse books by diverse authors.

Lemmon Avenue uses this definition of diversity found on the We Need Diverse Books mission statement. It is quoted below.)

“We recognize all diverse experiences, including (but not limited to) LGBTQIA, Native, people of color, gender, diversity, people with disabilities*, and ethnic cultural, and religious minorities.

*We subscribe to a broad definition of disability, which includes but is not limited to physical, sensory, cognitive, intellectual, or developmental disabilities, chronic conditions, and mental illnesses (this may also include addiction). Furthermore, we subscribe to a social model of disability, which presents disability created by barriers in the social environment, due to lack of equal access, stereotyping, and other forms of marginalization.”

Do not request to review a book that disrespect these communities.

  • What I did not enjoy?
  • Themes and writing style.
  • Why the reader should pick up this book?
  • All reviews are written with respect. Writing a book is hard. Not all books will appeal to everyone so that’s why I generally like to focus on the audience that the book has in mind when writing a review.
