Reviews & Policies


I do accept some review requests. However, due to time restraints, I cannot say yes to everyone and will give preference to those books that most appeal to me in my favoured genres. (Check out my Goodreads page to see what I'm reading/have read.)

If you wish to request a review, please email me with details of the book, including blurb, publication date, page/word count, and any deadlines if you need it reviewed within a certain time frame.

Please do not send unsolicited eBook copies; I will contact you if I agree to review.

I receive some of the books I review as free ARCs from publishers and/or authors. Please see each individual review for the source. Regardless of whether I buy a book or receive a complimentary copy, my reviews always express my personal and honest opinions.

All images posted on this site of book covers or film/tv/theatre posters are only included for the purposes of reviewing (and promoting in the case of ARCs, under request from the publisher of said works). All rights remain with the content creators.
