Review Policy

Hello! Thank you very much for your interest in Into the Wardrobe, an international blog about literature for the young and young at heart. :o) Into the Wardrobe is proudly a part of the kidlitosphere and the YA blogosphere/YA book blog directory.


I happily accept all kinds of children's and YA books for review. If you would like to send me a book for review, please email me so that I can give you my mailing address.

I feature every book I receive (through a review or author/illustrator interview, etc.). However, I cannot promise a positive feature for a book. I will be honest about both the strengths and weaknesses of a book. I also cannot promise a specific date for posting about a book. But every book will get featured.

I have a second children's and YA book blog, Asia in the Heart, World on the Mind, where I highlight: children's and YA books set in Asia, children's and YA books with Asian characters, children's and YA books with characters of Asian descent, Asian children's and YA book authors and illustrators, and children's and YA book authors and illustrators of Asian descent.

I also review books for Color Online, a blog dedicated to promoting children's, young adult, and adult books by women of color.

Please let me know if you would like your book featured on Into the Wardrobe; Asia in the Heart, World on the Mind; or Color Online.


Yes, I accept electronic copies of books for review. Please email me before sending an electronic copy of a book. My guidelines for electronic books are the same as my guidelines for books.


I love interviewing authors and illustrators (and really anybody in the children's and YA book world)! If you would like to request an interview, please email me information about the author or illustrator and his/her books. It would be best if I received a copy/e-copy of one of his/her books, so that I can ask the best questions and even accompany the interview with a review of the book.

Blog Tours

Yes, I participate in blog tours. Email me to inquire about my interest in a tour. For a blog tour, I will need a copy/e-copy of the book being promoted.


I would be glad to host giveaways/contests for the benefit of my blog readers. Email me to inquire about my interest in a giveaway/contest.

Thank you again for thinking of Into the Wardrobe! I look forward to working with you. :o)
