Join The Figment Review

Do you dream of fame? Of your name in italics at the bottom of a webpage? Of free books…that aren’t even available in stores yet?! Apply to join The Figment Review.

The Figment Review is a small group of book reviewers who read and write about YA books they love (and don’t love), and I’m their editor and general YA enthusiast, Ellen Parsons. I’m looking to add about 11 new reviewers to The Figment Review, and I encourage all interested members to apply. The commitment is small: just one book review per month. Advanced reader’s copies have been pouring in, so many of the books you review will be chosen by you from a list of free advanced copies. If our ARC library doesn’t interest you, you are free to review any YA book you own or would like to purchase, however new or old.

If you’re interested, send me an email at In that email, be sure to include:

Your name, age, and where you live;

Your hobbies, interests, and favorite books; and

A review of any YA novel, 250 words or less.

The deadline for applications is three weeks from today, on Friday, March 11.

  1. I love the idea of this, and even more so of the search for people to do reviews! It’s a great opportunity for anyone who wants to do reviews to get their foot in the door and to help better their reviewing and writing abilities. Fantasitc! Good luck to everyone!

    • The under 250 is only for the application. If you’re accepted, reviews can be longer, but I do encourage conciseness in reviewing! Thanks for all your enthusiasm. I’m really looking forward to reading all the applications!

  2. Thanks for all the enthusiasm! Love it. No, you don’t have to include your full address. Just state or region – whatever you feel comfortable with sharing!

  3. I’m about to email my application, but out of curiosity, is there a deadline? Do you know when you will have chosen the eleven? Thanks!

  4. Reading and writing in one opportunity?
    This sounds sounds like super coolness!
    My fingers are crossed as well 🙂

  5. I really hope I do get accepted! 🙂 so excited to actually find books to read that are more up my alley in terms of genre, style, and characters!

    • Hey Pippa-
      We’re going through applications now. We’re trying to go through them as quickly as possible so we can get back to you!

  6. When I originally commented I clicked the Notify me when new comments are added checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the similar comment. Is there any way you could remove me from that service? Thanks a whole lot!

  7. One can capture memorable moments by not only taking still photos, but videos as well. There are several remote options for this system including True – Control, True – Image – Control, and Touch Remotes. It is your responsibility to contact the seller and setup an exchange.
