Reviewing Policy

If you would like me to review a book, please read the following and contact me via

  1. I don’t do paid reviews. Never have, never will. All opinions are my own and as such may vary from the “accepted” view.
  2. Any sponsored posts, promos or giveaways that I participate in will be clearly marked as such.
  3. I won’t review everything I read, only books I have something to say about. I’ll still be very grateful for any books that people want to send me, but if I think that the book is just blah then I won’t waste my time trying to think of something to say about it.
  4. I still don’t review self-published books. There are too many books in the world to read so for me a traditional publisher represents quality control.
  5. I’ve given up shit sandwiches. You know when you try to find something nice to say about a really crappy book? I’m reviewing the book, not the author, so I’ll get to the point.
  6. I think it’s healthy to read around genres and my blog probably reflects this. I won’t read or review erotica, celebrity biographies, sports books or self-published books. Otherwise, I keep a fairly open mind.
