Review Policy

Review Policy

Let me begin by introducing myself. I'm a massive book fan and have enjoyed reading since I can remember. I want to share that passion for books with you all and as I regularly post reviews of books that I've enjoyed on sites such as Amazon and Goodreads, I thought I might as well start my own blog and share with you on here as well.

So what do I enjoy reading? I love thrillers, mysteries and some romantic fiction. I'm quite partial to historical fiction and books set in foreign countries, especially those I've visited though my favourite  settings would be France, Greece or Thailand or perhaps somewhere really exotic that I can dream of visiting one day. In short, I love anything that has a got a storyline, great characters and setting. Not too much to ask then? What I don't particularly enjoy are vampires, blood and guts, science-fiction, steampunk or anything with heaving bosoms if you get my drift. It's not that there's anything particularly wrong with those genres, it's just that they don't particularly appeal to me - I'm sure they do appeal to millions of others readers though. I'm not prudish but don't really enjoy erotica per se but a well written scene that allows plenty of imagination betwen the sheets is fine.

My reviews are honest and are just my personal reaction to a book. If you ask me to review your book, I will do my best to oblige as long as it fits into a genre that I enjoy. I can't guarantee a time scale either but if you have an imminent deadline approaching I will do my best to fit you in. I don't believe in writing nasty reviews as I appreciate the effort that goes into each and every work. However, if I don't like a book I will say so and explain why. Please don't ask me to remove a review as in all fairness I'm not going to appreciate every single book and there has to be some point of comparison so don't assume they will all be 5 stars.

I accept ebooks for Kindle or paperbacks. A signed copy in the post will make my day but won't cloud my judgement in your favour!

So, if you would like me to review your book, I can be contacted at

Sounds like you have a fair-minded approach. I'm so glad you don't require print format only, or review one genre only. So many reviewers are 100% romance only.

Thanks Bart - I try to be fair and enjoy different genres. Print is nice but I also want to encourage new writers who may not have that as an option.
