Wanna talk? Have a book you want me to review? New to blogging? Want personalized suggestions? No problem.


If you’re an author or a blogger who would be interested in submitting a guest post for RealityLapse, please feel free to send me an email at elimadison2019@gmail.com or hitting the mail button on the sidebar. I review all of the books I receive, and my reviews will always reflect my honest opinion.

I review mostly YA books on RealityLapse, but I do review MG books on my other book blog, Tweens Read Too. There’s a link below. Though I do usually prefer physical copies of books, I also accept eARCs and eBooks (.mobi).

Genres I generally am interested in: 

  • YA
  • Fantasy
  • Contemporary
  • Action
  • Adventure
  • Biographies/Memoirs
  • Realistic Fiction
  • Dystopia
  • Graphic Novels
  • Novellas
  • Thrillers

Genres I will review on a case-by-case basis: 

  • Paranormal
  • Crime and Murder
  • Adult
  • NA
  • Science Fiction
  • Non-fiction
  • Indie/Self-Pub
  • Humor
  • Christian Lit
  • Historical Fiction
  • Chick Lit

Genres I will not review: 

  • Horror
  • Erotica
  • Self-Help
  • Adult Romance
  • Poetry

Please keep in mind that I typically do not read or like paranormal romance, nonfiction or just romance in general. However, I am open to read them if a blurb interests me. I also don’t read horror or a lot of sci-fi. Other than that, everything else is pretty much open. Biographies, memoirs, classics, childrens, teens and the works. Would love to see what kind of books you guys enjoy!

How Reviews Work

  • Almost every blurb I use is off of Goodreads or is the publisher description. If a Goodreads description is not avalible, I will use the description on Literally.io or Amazon. If none can be found, I will write it in my review myself.
  • Quotes taken from uncorrected proofs are written in the review with the disclaimer to check in the final edition.
  • I rate books based on a star system described below.
  • Any advance review copies of books that I obtain are from a publisher or author. This does not affect my reviews. I am not compensated in any way for my positive thoughts in a review.
  • All opinions are my own.

If you find anything inconsistent with my reviews or disclaimers, please let me know by emailing me by hitting the button on the very top of the sidebar or at elimadison2019@gmail.com. If you have any images that I used in a review or post that you would like me to take down, please let me know and I will take it down immediately.
