Review Policy

Genres Reviewed
At the moment I am only accepting review requests for the following genres:
  • Fantasy (including high fantasy and urban fantasy)
  • Sci-Fi
  • Dystopian/Post-apocalyptic
  • Paranormal
  • Mystery/thriller
  • Steampunk
I will review Young Adult, New Adult or Adult novels.

Formats Accepted 
I currently accept review copies in the following formats:
  • .mobi (Kindle)
  • PDF
  • Paperback
Please be aware that I am based in the UK, so physical copies will take longer to reach me if posting from the US.

I prefer to read in series order, so please only send the first book in a series.

Review Criteria
Reviews are based on my personal thoughts and opinions. The criteria I use to write my reviews are:

  • Plot (believability, hooks, suspense, pace)
  • Characters (likeability, realism, relationships)
  • Language and Style 
  • Emotional Response
  • Meaning (feminist and other socio-political interpretations
  • Continuity (how it compares to prequels/sequels)
  • Originality

Payment Policy 
I will never accept payment for a review. Occasionally authors and publishers send me free books to review. They do so in the understanding that I will review their book honestly and will make my readers aware that I have received a free copy. Free books or book 'swag' such as bookmarks or stickers will never influence my review.

I really liked it and would recommend it.
It was ok-I liked some parts but there were some weaknesses.

I hated it and struggled to finish.
