review policy

I’m always open to receiving review requests from authors and publishers. I am very grateful that I get the opportunity to review incredible books before their release date. Unfortunately, it is impossible for me to accept every request I receive, but I do try to accept as many as I can.

Reading Preferences

I enjoy a range of genres, but have a particular preference for contemporary, fantasy, literary fiction and thrillers. I love reading both adult and middle-grade.

I do not read: science fiction, horror, erotica or religion/spirituality.

I accept both digital and physical copies for review. I do prefer physical copies where possible; I find them easier to read, but also more popular on Instagram. I am no longer on Netgalley.

Review Policy

ARCs and any books sent for review are always my priority and I aim to read and review any book sent to me as soon as possible, but I do not commit to any specific deadlines.

My reviews reflect my honest and fair opinion. I will not provide an inflated review, and reserve the right not to publish a review. I do write reviews for books I do not finish; if I am DNFing a review copy, I will send an email to inform you of the reason for this.

I also reserve the right to choose where my review is published. I am to publish all reviews on Goodreads and my Instagram, as well as my blog if I wish.
