All about us and blog policies

Welcome to the Paperback Princesses. We are two librarians who decided to share a blog and talk about all of our YA anything else that tickles our fancy.

How are we different from other blogs?

We originally started this as a way for students to find ISU (independent novel study) titles in the YA sections rather than just the adult section. We try to choose themes that are relevant, identifiable and comparable to other titles. That's not to say that our blog is limited to YA. We will also be reviewing some adult titles as well.

Not all of our reviews will be ISU based but we will use tags to try to identify those which are. Many of the books we choose to review are books we enjoy reading and discussing.  Please feel free to leave comments on any of our posts if you agree (or disagree) with anything we have to say. 


At this time, we are accepting material from publishers and authors for review. Please contact us ahead of time at (Christinabean) or (Curlypow). E-books and paper copies are both acceptable.

Because we both work full-time, we will try to read and review all material in a timely manner but cannot always guarantee to do so. If you leave us your contact information, we will also send you a link to our review when it goes live so you can see what we think.

We try our best to review all material and if we cannot present a positive review or recommendation to others, we will at least try to be polite and fair. All material submitted to us may be used at our discretion and we may use titles in promotions or giveaways from our blog.


We are officially an award-free blog!

Please don't be offended!  We appreciate being acknowledged by other blogs and followers but prefer that you show the love through comments on our posts or emails sent to us directly.
