Book Review Policy

Book Review Policy Header

Below is my book review policy including the genre I prefer and the genres that I will not read. Please respect my restrictions, they are in place for the best of us all. I do get a lot of requests so please understand if I cannot respond to your email. 

I accept books in mobi format, audiobook, or physical copies, with a preference toward physical copies. I do live in New Zealand, so I understand that is a factor in shipping.

All physical ARCs are donated to a local women’s shelter unless the author/publisher requests otherwise. None are sold or traded.

My Rating Scale

If I accept a book I will give it an honest review on my blog unless my review is overly negative.

If my review is under 3 stars I may choose not to share the review on my blog but will still review on Goodreads and other areas.

I will endeavour to review your book within a month of the publishing date or otherwise let you know when to expect the review.

If your book is already in print I will review it within 3 months of receiving it.

My Expectations from Authors

  • You accurately represent your book to me and don't try to make it sound like something it's not.
  • Understand that this blog and reviewing is a hobby that happens aside to my real life and like all people my life can get busy, etc. I will communicate when such things happen.
  • Accept that I only do honest reviews and thus it might not be a favourable review. Please remember this is based on my taste and opinions.
  • Understand this is my blog where I talk about books I have read and other bookish items. This is not your free advertising space.
  • Accept and understand this book review policy.

Please do not copy any of my reviews or repost them without my express permission first.
