I will always honestly review the books I receive. I will not intentionally write a bad review, but if I didn’t enjoy reading it I will say so. I am also willing to Beta-read books.

Due to other commitments, the type & length of the book and my reading speed, my review can take between one week and one month. If you need a special date, let me know and we can try to arrange it.

However, this does not guarantee that I will be able to review your book.

Please bear in mind when you are requesting a review or giveaway, that I am from the United Kingdom.

The genres that I review at the moment are:

-          YA
-          Paranormal
-          Sci-fi
-          Fantasy
-          Contemporary Fiction
-          Dystopian
-          Urban Fantasy
-          Zombie
-          Memoir
-          Thriller

The genres I will NOT review are:

-          Erotica
-          Middle Grade
-          Religious
-          Classics

-          Horror
-          Self-help

In my reviews, I include:

-          The book cover
-          The ISBN or ASIN
-          The publisher
-          The amount of pages
-          The blurb (from Goodreads or from a press release provided by the publisher)
-          My review
-          An Amazon UK link
-          An Amazon US link

(I would also appreciate it if when requesting a review, the length of the book (in pages), the ISBN / ASIN and whether or not it is part of a series is stated.)

The formats I accept for review are:

-          Paperbacks
-          Hardbacks
-          ARCs

Whether you are an indie author or a mainstream author, I would be more than happy to promote your book here.

If you send me an email to request a review, author interview or any other post listed above, and I don’t answer it’s not because I may not want to do that post. I may not have received your email or it might be in spam. I also may not be able to reply to emails within the same week sometimes, due to other commitments.

If you would like to have your post on a particular date, I would appreciate it if you could notify me of this at least two weeks to a month before the chosen date.

I can be contacted via email at or

Thankyou for your time!
