Review Policy

Allegory Of Words is a personal blog dedicated to diversifying bookshelves and uplifting magical stories from historically marginalized writers. I’m an own-voices reviewer for Asian/Asian-American representation, as well as bisexual/sapphic/queer representation.

If you are interested in me reviewing a work, please email me at

I prioritize the following genres: Young Adult, Young Adult Science Fiction Fantasy, New Adult, Adult Contemporary/Romance, and Adult Science Fiction Fantasy. I especially read books that are diverse, inclusive, and neurodiverse.

I prioritize physical galleys over e-ARCs, but all of my reviews are 100% honest and of my own opinion only. I will post all ARC reviews on Goodreads and occasionally the blog itself. If I love the book, I will promote it on all platforms including but not limited to: Goodreads, Twitter, Instagram, Discord, etc.

I am also open to blog tour, hosting giveaways, cover reveals, author interviews, and more!
