Review Policy

MARs is currently accepting book review requests from Muslim authors and publishers.

Muslim Authored Reads is a personal book review blog written and edited by me. For questions about the Mars blog, please contact us at

Most of the books reviewed on Muslim Authored Reads are either owned by me or checked out from the local library. However, I do often receive review request from authors and publishers. Here at the MARs, I do not accept any form of advertising, sponsorship, or paid insertions.  I do not receive compensation in any way for my reviews. However, I do keep the books I receive from authors and publishers and often offer them up in book giveaways, to my local library or person in need. I write book reviews for my own purpose. My reviews reflect my own opinions, personal background, occupation, religion, and experience.

Books reviewed on this site are authored by Muslim writers. Books may or may not be Islamic fiction but they consist of Muslim lead and secondary characters, touch on religious, cultural, family, or social matters in the Muslim community.
