Review Policy

Thank you so much for your interest in Into the Hall of Books! I will happily accept requests from publishers, authors, and publicists to read, review, and promote your work. My preference is a finished copy or ARC/galley of the book, but I do read electronically on a Kindle. I also love audiobook format, as my favorite way to read and review is print/digital + audio. I would also love to participate in interviews, guest posts, blog tours, or giveaways to help promote your book.  


From my About Me page: 

*Speaking of reading and reading preferences: I really do read almost anything. I try to be a well-rounded reader; that is when I’m truly happy. I love young adult fiction, adult fiction, and new adult fiction. I also read middle grade fiction, not only because I enjoy it, but I believe wholeheartedly in reading what my/your kids read. I do that as much as possible. 

I love contemporary with all of my heart, regular contemporary-with-romance, and I also love the ones that bring the issues out, the hard-hitting, the gut-wrenching, the ones that make you think. The ones that speak to the young people. I want to read those. Give me your YA contemporaries, especially with issues! I also love romances because I believe in love – I love a happy ending, but I also know that love is messy and that it doesn’t always end perfectly. I want to read them all. Give me love stories! I will never grow tired of dystopians no matter how saturated the market (people actually say that?), so I want to read them. I have a particularly special place in my heart lately for good historical fiction, even Christian historical fiction, so I might just want to read them. Books with a Southern setting, especially North Carolina? Yep, I’m at leastinterested. And fantasy? Be still my heart. I’m serious: I will read just about anything. 

More than anything, I want to read a book while listening to the audiobook – this is my favorite way to read and often this is how I have to prioritize reading because of how busy my life has become. Not always, not always, so don’t freak out or fret and certainly don’t hold a good request. But MAN OH MAN, I wish there were more audiobooks available to read alongside the print/digital versions, and I wish they were available to me more easily. That is my request. 

I love both traditionally published work and non-traditionally published work – there is immeasurable value in both. 

What I do not want to read: medical thrillers, crime thrillers, mysteries. I’m firm on this – I do not like them. I also prefer not to be added to newsletters without my permission. 


If you have a specified timeframe for your review, please let me know your wishes in your request. Otherwise, I will try to read books/ARC’s in the order that I received them. This does not always work, however, as I tend to be a very emotional reader plus I almost always read multiple books at one time. Traditionally published books are acceptable as are non-traditionally published books but please be aware that I am a little more picky now than I used to be because of the demands of life. 

I can be reached at asheley.tart@ gmail.com and I do my best to return emails as soon as possible. Please understand that due to the large amount of email pitches/requests received daily, no response after several days can best be viewed as a respectful decline. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Thank you!
