Review Policy

I am currently closed for review requests.

When open for review requests, I will accept ARCs, galleys, and finished books, in either print or digital form (ideally epub, but mobi files are also accepted). I also review audiobooks. I review books published traditionally, by indie publishers, and also self-published works.

For any review requests, please provide at least the following information:

  • Title and author
  • Genre
  • Synopsis, and a short sample if possible (plus audio sample if it’s an audiobook)
  • Length
  • Publication date and publishing route

You can contact me using the form on my Contact Me page. I’m currently making my way through a backlog of reviews, so please allow me some time to respond, but if I don’t get back to you, please feel free to chase me up!

I’m interested in reading across a variety of genres, including SFF, YA, literary fiction, and queer romance. The majority of my reading focuses on books by authors who identify as women, trans*, and/or gender non-conforming, and on characters with these identities.

If I agree to consider your book for a review, I will let you know the timescale in which I will be able to read your book, and when I would intend to publish a review. If you want a review to be posted on a specific date, please let me know with as much notice as possible. If I won’t be able to provide a review, or am likely to provide a very critical review, I will contact you directly with feedback about this.

All reviews I post are my own, honest opinions of what I’ve read. I try to include specific examples of what I did and didn’t like about a book.

I typically list all books read on Goodreads, including a star rating following the Goodreads rating system (below). However, I don’t include a rating on this blog as I don’t personally find it that helpful for me and would rather rate a book through recommending it or not.
Goodreads star rating system:
1 star – did not like it
2 stars – it was okay
3 stars – liked it
4 stars – really liked it
5 stars – it was amazing
I am happy to post shortened reviews to Goodreads, and also to review on Amazon – please let me know if you would like me to do this. I will also cross-post to other sites as necessary – please let me know if there is anywhere in particular.
