…where we answer almost all of the burning questions you might have about Bookwyrming Thoughts and the bookwyrms who write the musings.
Got questions you don’t see an answer to? Tell us! We do, however, reserve the right to not reveal anything we don’t feel comfortable revealing. We’ll be updating this page as needed (and when we have the time).

Can I use any of the content?
If you plan on copying any of our content, no. Should we find out you have copied any of our content without our explicit permission, we will kindly send you a message privately asking you to take the content down. A horde of angry bookwyrms will be sent after you should you refuse or repeat the offense.
If you would like to repost any of our content, please contact us for permission. Content includes but is not limited to: blog posts, graphics and banners, and photographs from the site and Instagram.
Inspiration is good, plagiarism is no good. If any of our content inspires you to write a post, please feel free to write your post and send us a message! We’d love to see what you’ve come up with.
Do you accept sponsored posts or collaborations?
While we do receive free copies and affiliate commissions, we have not previously done a sponsored post or collaboration. However, we are open to those opportunities, and we strongly suggest looking at our content prior to contacting us to see if we are right for your brand. Should you feel we are the perfect fit for your brand, please reach out to us and we can talk.
Do you accept review copies?
Please view our review policy for more information about each reviewer’s reading preferences, their reviewing status and contact information. While we try to regularly update the page, we highly recommend viewing our latest posts for the most accurate and up-to-date reading preferences.
Do you review anything other than books?
While most of our content and review requests are books, we do step out of the book-reviewing space sometimes! When we do, we review games, mobile apps and movies/TV shows.
I want to invite you to an app! Are you on Android or iOS?
Both of us use Android devices.
Are your reviews spoiler-free?
None of our reviews are completely spoiler-free, but we do try to avoid spoilers about the plot that will ruin the reading experience for others. In other words, there will be minor spoilers, but nothing major – anything major will be hidden by a spoiler button. Going into detail about content that is triggering for one of us and potentially for others is not what we consider a spoiler.
Please note sequel reviews will generally include spoilers from the previous novels under the assumption you’ve read the previous books.
How frequently do you post?
We aim to post content at least once a week. However, as we are both working full time, this is heavily based on what our schedules look like. Sometimes there will be more content, other times there will be what seems to be an on and off hiatus. Blogging takes a lot of time and energy, and unfortunately, we do not make a living off of blogging. Because of that, we generally have to push blogging back when life becomes a bit much.
Can I contribute content to the blog? What about guest posts?
We’re currently not actively searching for any contributing writers, however, we do accept guest posts! Please be sure to check out some of our recent posts to get a feel for the types of articles we publish. To submit a guest post, please contact sophia(at)bookwyrmingthoughts(dot)com.
Do you have a Patreon or Kofi?
Thank you for believing in the value of our work to consider supporting us! You are under no obligation to support us with your hard-earned money. Currently, the best way to support the blog is through our affiliate links. Patreon and Ko-Fi are currently not available, though Sophia is working on hers.
Should I start a book blog?
Sophia has a post about signs to inspire you to start a book blog written in 2019.
How do you blog for so long?
Sophia has a post about how to continue blogging even after 7 years written in 2019 for this blog’s 7th anniversary.
What does each of your ratings mean?
While the rating system may change over time and varies upon the reviewer, here’s a brief rundown of what each means:
1 Star – n o p e
2 Stars – not the greatest
3 Stars – okay, but liked it overall
4 Stars – enjoyed it a lot
5 Stars – absolutely loved it
Note: We do use a half-star rating system. As a general rule of thumb, DNFs and 1-2.5 is will not recommend, 3-3.5 is maybe recommended, and 4-5 is will recommend. DNFs are rated on what was read, not the entire book.
