Review Policy

I’m a 40 year old northern bird with a liking for cake, chocolate, BOOKS (of course) and fitness DVD’s in that order…….hence why I NEED the DVD’s. One day I will have to build a house out of all the books I own when I can’t pay my mortgage…..

All things bookish here….

I am always happy to share the book love! However I do this as a hobby and it takes up quite a bit of my precious spare time.  I have a full time job and 2 children and life can get crazy! So here are a few things to consider if you want to approach me to review a book:

  • My preferred genres are literary fiction and dark historical fiction (Not romance!)


  • I won’t read YA, Fantasy or Sci-Fi and I am not a huge fan of non-fiction.  I have been known to read and review non-fiction but they are always books about a subject I have an interest in.


  • I will always prefer to read a physical copy of a book.  I will only read digital versions if that’s my only option AND it’s a book I’m desperate to read!


  • When I receive a book I will usually do an Instagram and Twitter post. I may also do a ‘mini’ review on Instagram rather than a full review on the blog depending upon how much time I have and how much I feel I have to say about the book.


  • I will usually publish a review around 1-2 weeks before the publication date (unless I’ve been asked to publish on a specific date). 


  • I won’t review a book I can’t finish and/or am not enjoying.


I think that’s pretty much everything!
