Hi, I’m Lauren, and I’m the voice behind Literary Bread. Literary Bread focuses on international literary fiction that has been translated into English. I accept for review solicited advanced reading copies (ARCs), review copies of books, and newer titles issued no later than 3 months after the translation publication date.

On occasion, I do make exceptions for earlier releases assuming they fit into my niche or are extraordinary additions to the canon of translated literature.

I ask that you please read my review policy in full before requesting my services.

Digital copies are also accepted.

Book Review Policy Disclaimer

By contacting me with a request to review, you acknowledge and respect my right to share my honest opinion. All assessments, critiques, and opinions are my own and are not meant to cause harm in any way.

Upon receiving and reading a title, if a book is poorly edited, in poor taste, or does not catch my interest to the extreme, I reserve the right to decline a review. I may or may not inform you on why I declined the review.
