Review Policy

I am currently accepting books for review, if you would like to contact me first, you can head over to my contact page.

I’m an avid reader who is open to all genres. But my favourites are literary fiction, general fiction and crime/thriller. I’m also open to reviewing non-fiction, especially related to history, politics and current-affairs. (I have a history degree which helps!)

My reviews will always reflect my own honest opinion, regardless of how they are attained. I reserve the right to refuse a request if the book doesn’t interest me or doesn’t fit with my content.

I use a rating system of 1-5 stars, 5 stars being the highest award. Sometimes I use half stars if I feel the book is between two ratings.

★★★★★  ~ An outstanding book that ticked all the boxes. One that I would recommend to anyone without hesitation.

★★★★ ~ A very good read, not without fault but something I would recommend.

★★★☆☆ ~ An average read with some good elements. It didn’t blow my mind, but worth a read.

★★☆☆☆ ~ This book wasn’t for me, not unbearable, but I didn’t like it.

★☆☆☆☆ ~ I didn’t enjoy this book at all.

Please note, in each review I will always disclose whether I have received an ARC (advanced reader copy), or whether a book has been gifted to me. However, this will never reflect the nature of my review. If nothing is disclosed, the books will have been provided by myself, friends or family.

I am happy to review to a deadline, please contact me regarding this if you have any queries.

Thank you for reading.
