Review Policy

I am now tentatively accepting review requests, but it may take me time to review.

I only accept requests for contemporary fiction and historical fiction (but please don’t send me requests for historical romances).

I will accept copies of Children’s picture books for my Children’s Hour feature, however these will need to be hardcopies as I will be taking them to work to read with the kids. Also note that most of the children I work with are between the ages of 3 and 5 years, so I will not accept books which would not suit this age.

I do not accept review requests for Romance, fantasy, sci-fi, paranormal fiction, or Chick-lit. Please don’t send me requests for these, they just get deleted.

I will very occasionally accept crime fiction and YA requests.

If I have read something by an author before I will look at review requests for other books by them, but cannot guarantee to accept.

If you would like me to review your book please send me an e-mail at (or use the form below). Please include a synopsis in your e-mail and be prepared to send me either a hardcopy or kindle copy of the book you would like me to review. You can also find me on netgalley and edelweiss

Unfortunately I can no longer guarantee that your book will be the next I read as my pile of review books is constantly being added to, however if you have a release date approaching or other reason you would like a review by a certain date I will take this into account.

You can find me on Goodreads, , Twitter, Facebook, AmazonBookmooch, tumblr and Bookcrossing. I will not however accept requests sent through these sites.
