Review Policy


Review policy:

At the moment, I am receiving books from publishers to review at least monthly. Sometimes this means three, four or even more reviews due on the same day or within a few days of each other – as such, these reviews will take priority as I have dates for them, and contacts. I only review books I know I will enjoy, and these take priority.

I attempt to write honest, yet balanced reviews – some might lean more towards loving it or loathing it. I reserve that for books that either capture me completely or that I don’t enjoy at all. I try not to be too critical, and give the books I am sent a decent shot.

If a book does not have a specific date a review is needed, it will move down the list when there are specific dates involved. This is simply so I can stay on top of everything and get to things at a fair pace.

Genres I review:

  • Historical Fiction
  • Fantasy
  • YA
  • Children’s
  • Crime/Mystery
  • Genre blended
  • Non-Fiction – biographies, history.

I do not review books about business practices, science or technology. Please do not send me anything like this as I will not read it at all.

Ebooks: If necessary, I will read these. Please keep in mind this might take longer than a paperback  as reading on a screen requires more breaks for me, to save my eyes and head to engage properly with the story – simply a way to ensure I am able to write the best review I can, rather than a judgement on format.

I reserve the right to refuse to review a book if it does not fit into my schedule or if it is one I am not going to enjoy.
