Submissions for Review

We're happy to accept unsolicited submissions to consider for review, but please be aware that we only review books by or about women. We also reserve the right to choose not to review a book submitted. If you are interested in Reading Women covering a book around its release date, we prefer that you submit the book(s) 6 to 8 weeks in advance.

Currently, we are not looking for more self-help, thrillers, or inspirational romance titles.
