Review Policy

I am open to receiving Advance Reading Copies and Review Copies of books.

I accept physical and ebooks preferably, in ePub or PDF. When emailing, please include the summary, the release date, and the cover image. Any links to further information would be appreciated. I am a fan of YA & NA genres and prefer contemporary and romance. Fantasy, paranormal, and mystery may be considered. I don’t really enjoy non-fiction, crime or scary books.

By accepting or receiving a book, I do not guarantee that it will be read immediately or posted on this blog. I will try my very best to get it read and reviewed in a timely manner, but understand that I have other books I am committed to reviewing. If you have a time-frame for the review to be posted, please let me know as that will greatly influence my decision to accept your book and will have to see if I can commit to that timeline. If the book is an ARC, I will try and publish the review on the release date. If the author allows, once I have read and reviewed the book, I will host a giveaway to pass on their book to another reader. If I no longer wish to review your book, I will do my best to contact you and where allowed, will pass on to another blogger.

All reviews published will be my honest opinion and may contain negative comments addressing the problems I had with the book. If I rate the book 2 leafs or less, I may not publish my review. You will be notified in due course. I care about informing readers of my honest opinions of the book and what they can expect. I will try my best not to reveal spoilers. Reviews will be published on this blog and Goodreads. I will use Twitter and Facebook to publicise my review posts.

I use a 5 star rating system:

5 = I loved it
4 = I really liked it
3 = I liked it
2 = It was okay
1 = I didn’t like it

I am happy to host author interviews, giveaways, and other promotional events, but sometimes may have to decline due to lack of time or interest. I will consider being a guest blogger on other book related blogs.

I am not a professional reviewer. I read for fun. I am an international blogger. I live in Tauranga, New Zealand. If you are shipping a physical book, I will prioritise your book above others. Books that I have requested personally have first priority. Most books I read are loaned from the library, but if I receive a review copy, that will be noted in the review.

After submitting a request:

I may not get back to you immediately. If you have not heard back from me after 7 days, please email me again as I may not have received your email.

Please remember not all requests will be accepted.
