My Review Policy

Update: I am now taking review requests, however, any review requests I accept will be added to my 2023 review schedule and will be moved up accordingly as I finish each book. September 2022!!

Welcome to my Review Policy. Please read fully, and if you have any questions please feel free to get in touch.

  • I’m happy to receive books by post. There’s nothing better than receiving beautiful new books in the post to review. (Please note I live in the UK)
  • I accept eBooks but can only accept them if they are compatible with Kindle at the moment.
  • Love receiving review requests from self-published authors.
  • I’m also happy to receive audiobooks to review.
  • I cannot guarantee 100% that I will be able to review every single book as soon as I get them. I will however, try to read them as soon as I can. I will try to prioritise books depending on whether a review date has been given or when they are to be officially published, so if you are able to send a book with enough time I will try my very best to read and review it before the release date.
  • I will always write honest and unbiased reviews, so if I don’t like a book or absolutely love it I will say so. As well as posting reviews on here I will also post on Amazon.co.uk & goodreads.com. Please note sometimes Amazon.co.uk will not allow me to post reviews until the book is officially published so reviews will be up as soon as I am allowed to do so.

While I enjoy reading different genres I do have my favourites. These are

  • Mystery/Thriller
  • Any type of Crime
  • Suspense

  • Women’s fiction

I love trying new genres so if your book doesn’t fall under any of the mentioned genres, please don’t hesitate to sending me a review request. Please don’t forget to include information about the book, as if I’m interested, I will be happy accept!!

Please note I will not accept books in the following genres:

  • Pure romance novels (I don’t mind a little romance here and there but I’ve never made it through a full romance novel)
  • Erotica

Additional Review Information

I will always inform my readers where I received the book from. However, when posting reviews on Amazon.co.uk I will have to remove this acknowledgement to prevent Amazon from declining reviews.

I always try my best to give spoiler-free reviews and if there is a spoiler, I will make sure it is clearly mentioned in the review.
