Requested Reviews

Requested Reviews: books sent in by authors or publishers that are looking for reviews – “in process” means a reviewer is reading the book right now, once they are finished and the review sent in, the book gets moved to the Read section under the issue it’s scheduled for.

Reviews are prioritized into Tiers. The first level, Tier 1, are the priority reviews for authors and/or publishers that have supported Uncaged with either ad purchases in the magazine, or have shared Uncaged extensively on their networks. The reviews can be adjusted at any time. At this time, there are 2 Tiers, with the possibility of going to 3 Tiers in the future if needed. Please email if you have any questions.

Tier 2 books remain on the lists for 6 months. If the book has not been chosen in that time frame, it will be removed. The book can be re-submitted by the author. This does not apply to Tier 1.

All reviews from Uncaged will be posted at Amazon and Goodreads.

Apologies, but we are not reviewing non-fiction and children’s books at this time.

Wait time for reviews status, based on list lengths (will be highlighted):

Our current status is RED

Red: Could be long wait time
Yellow: Wait times are slower
Green: Quick turnaround

Authors please note: If your book has been on the list for over 6 months and hasn’t been requested by a reviewer, the book will be removed, this applies to Tier 2 only.
