Girl in the Gutter Review Policy

Girl in the Gutter reviews books. Sometimes she buys the books she reviews. Sometimes people give them to her for free. Giving GITG a free book does not guarantee a great review. (Seriously, it’s not like she can’t be bought but it’s going to take a lot more than a book. Throw in a weekend in Hong Kong, a vintage ruby ring and a threesome with Jason Statham and Scarlett Johansson and it could be a different story.)

She reviews any genre of pulp except romance. She does not review nonfiction, poetry, children’s books, or graphic novels. Digital copies of books are preferred (in epub, mobi, or pdf format). If you’d like to send her a print copy, please contact her at to make arrangements.

At the moment, she accepts books from authors, publishers and publicists. In general, she will not review self-published books but if you have one that you think is fabulous, drop her a line and make a pitch for it.

She may not review every book she receives and she reserves the right not to post a review if she really dislikes a book. She doesn’t like to waste anyone’s time and no one has enough time to read all the good books out there, much less the bad ones. That being said, books are rated on a scale of 1-5, with five being best.

Please address all review requests to Girl in the Gutter at She looks forward to reading your books.
