Review Policy and Rating Explanation

Review Policy

I’d be happy to accept print copies and e-books (PDF or ePub) but I don’t have a Kindle or Kindle Unlimited so please don’t contact me about books available on Kindle. I live in the UK so please bear that in mind if you want to send a print copy of a book.

I will usually read and review a book within three weeks of receiving it but that could change at any time since I’m a student. I’ll post the review on my blog and on Goodreads and promote on Google Plus and Twitter. (Occasionally I’ll promote on Instagram too.)

I’d be happy to accept the following genres:

  • Fantasy
  • Science Fiction
  • Mystery and Thriller
  • Nonfiction (Feminism, History, and Biographies of Historical Figures)
  • General and Literary
  • Young Adult
  • Middle Grade

However, please don’t contact me about reviews for:

  • Erotica
  • Romance
  • Christian Fiction
  • Nonfiction (Business, Religion, Food, and Celebrity Biography/Autobiograph)

I can be reached through my contact form or at

  • 2 – Bad. I disliked this book although it may have one or two good qualities. I would not recommend it.

  • 4 – Very Good. I really enjoyed this book but there are just one or two aspects that I disliked. I would recommend this book.
