Review Policy

I will consider all review requests in the young adult age group, except for any horror novels. I will accept both physical and ebook requests, though will only accept a review copy if I am interested in the book, or have read books by the author previously. My favourite genres are historical, fantasy and contemporary. I will also consider adult romance fiction, particularly historical romance.

I will provide an honest review of my opinions about the book, and both positive and negative reviews will be shown on this website.

I also cannot guarantee a time frame of when I will read and review the book, but would attempt to read and review within 2 months of receiving the book, unless you have a specific time frame in mind (which I will let you know if I am able to achieve when you get in touch).

Please make sure to read this policy, and only get into touch if you are happy with it.

I will also consider requests to be part of blog tours/for author interviews as I have enjoyed taking part in these in the past.

If you have any questions, or would like to get in touch about anything, please fill in the boxes below, and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
