Book Review Policy

 I'm happy to receive book review requests but I do not accept every book I am invited to review. I'm sorry I can't read all the books - it's the story of a bookworm's life! - but there's just not enough time in the day. Plus, I don't need the stress and prefer to read freely than read to a strict deadline.

However, if you'd like me to consider your book, and it falls within the parameters of what I like to read, please do bring it to my attention!
 I promise don't bite... My contact form is in the sidebar or you can email me at

What I Read

I'm a big mood reader but what never really changes is that I am a romance junkie and my preferred reading material tends to fall into the romance genre. That said, I'll read pretty much anything with a strong romantic hook... Although there are exceptions! If it's a slashy stabby thriller then I'd pass. The same goes for horror but I'm 100% down for paranormal, mystery, and fantasy... In fact, fantasy is probably second only to romance in my reading preferences, more specifically urban fantasy!

Within the romance genre, my preferred subgenres are contemporary romance, fantasy romance and paranormal romance. That said, if it's a romance - happily ever after/for now essential! - then I'll consider it. 

If you've read my "about me" section, you'll know that I'm a mum of one and I've spent years (i.e all his life) cultivating a love of reading in my son. This means that I read a lot of middle-grade and young adult fiction. In the beginning, it was reading with him. Now, it's reading them because I enjoy them! He recommends books to me, I recommend books to him, and it is awesome. The middle grade and young adult books I/we tend to read are fantasy based, packed full of mythology and action

Also from my "about me" section, I am a history buff so I'm partial to the occasional historical fiction but I also read a lot of historical non-fiction... First World War, Second World War, War of the Roses, and the Tudors are amongst my favourite topics but I'm not all that discerning! If it interests me, I'll read it when it comes to history. 

Points of note when requesting a book review...

Reviews are my own, unbiased, opinion. They will not be amended in any way to suit the requester or anybody else.  They're fairly short and to the point and I try to avoid spoilers... What I don't write 1500 word recaps, dissections, or mini-essays analysing every plot point or the author's writing technique in flowery prose. (Not knocking those that do! I just don't.) I focus on what I liked, what I didn't like but, more importantly, how a book made me feel.

 Ebooks or audiobooks are preferred. 

 I'm a UK based blogger so if you plan on sending a physical copy of a book, please consider postage costs - which you would be responsible for - before requesting a review. 

 Reviews will be posted on my blog, Goodreads and Amazon, plus promoted via social media.
