Contest Policy

With the increasing number of contests being held here at Wicked Awesome Books, I have decided to create a general policy regarding the basics of the contests I hold.

~All entrants must be 13 years of age or older.

~Entries will only be accepted during the stated period. Any entries received after contest deadline, will NOT be counted.  All contests are subject to early closure or an extension without prior notice.

~Contest winners will be chosen by random number generator at

~I will attempt to post any/all contest winners within 48 hours of a contest closing, unless otherwise stated. Personal reasons may force me to post winners later than this time period, but 48 hours is my goal.

~Currently, I will be emailing all winners. Winners will have 48 hours to get back to me with any required information before alternate winners are chosen.

Please read all contest rules. Specific contest rules may vary.
~Read and follow all individual contest instructions. Failure to do so may result in disqualification.
~Any links provided for contest entries will be verified, as will follower status
~Be aware of contest deadlines

Thanks for taking the time to read my policy and feel free to direct and questions or concerns to me at:

Privacy Policy

I take privacy very seriously, so please take a minute to review my policy. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me at:

Privacy Policy:
Here at Wicked Awesome Books I do not collect or store any personal information. Any information requested for contests may be visible to all parties and I cannot guard against others using it. Information displayed in comments for contests will be deleted once a contest has ended.

Any personal information collected for a contest will promptly be deleted. I will not store this information or use it for any other means, aside from sending out a prize. No information will be shared, sold, or distributed in any way, nor will it be kept on file.

Once again, if you have any questions, feel free to contact me at

Review Policy

If you are an author, publisher, or publicist and would like to send me a book (ARC or finished copy) for review, arrange an interview, or guest blog here then send an email to wickedawesomebooks(at)hotmail(dot)com. I am also willing to host contests and do promotions. Just email me with the info.

This blog is generally for YA books, but I will feature some Middle Grade books and adult books that have crossover appeal. I tend to enjoy a variety of YA books, including paranormal, supernatural, and fantasy, as well as contemporary YA and dystopian novels.

If you'd like me to consider reviewing a book, just send me a synopsis and I will get back to you.

At the moment I am not accepting e-books, Christian fiction, self-help books, nonfiction, and I rarely listen to audiobooks. I'm willing to make some exceptions with the audiobooks, as long as they are YA audiobooks. Again, just send me a synopsis.

For a list of the books I've reviewed click here.

My reviews are completely honest and strictly my opinion of the book. I cross-post all of my reviews on Goodreads, Amazon, and B&N, but I will post elsewhere if requested. My reviews include an image of the book, title, author, publisher, book type (HC, PB, ARC), publishing date, synopsis of the book, as well as my personal review. I also include the opening line of the book, as well as my favorite line(s).

If there are book trailers available, I will attempt to post it along with links to the author's website, Twitter, etc. I also post links for online retailers that are currently selling the book.

This is my rating system:

Reviews of ARC's will generally be posted within a month of the books release date (either within a month before or a month after release date). If you would like the review posted at a different time, just specify. I will also post to coordinate with any special events, as long as it is specified. Reviews for other books will generally be posted within two weeks of receiving the book.

If I do not enjoy a book, I will attempt to pass it along to someone who will. I will never sell ARC's or make a profit off of them.
