REVIEW POLICY & RATING SYSTEM

I’m currently OPEN to review requests (AS OF APRIL 2016) and I will make sure that books that are specifically requested for me to review them will be taken priority over other books. I prefer reading physical copies of books but I am willing to read e-copies (please make sure your book is compatible for reading on a Kindle). In the review, I will be 100% honest and unbiased. If I criticise your book, I will do it in the most constructive way possible but honestly. It is my right to decline a book, especially if I feel that it’s not usually a book I would read – saying that, I do consider each request on a book to book basis. So if your book is not in the preferred genres list, it doesn’t mean I will necessarily decline to review it. Genres listed in the unaccepted genres will not be accepted regardless.

Please head to the contact page if you would like to request a review.

Ensure you include your name, your book’s title, genre(s), a synopsis, physical copy / e-copies and when your book is due for release (so I can get a review up in time for its release date), as well as any other things you would like to tell me about your book and make sure you include an email address so that I can respond to your email with my details (address if a physical copy).

RATING SYSTEM

5STAR

If you get given this, that means the book was so amazing I couldn’t put it down and would likely recommend it to everyone, including my cats all the way to my nan (and my nan loves books okay?)

4STAR

A four star means I really liked it. I would recommend it to most people.

3STAR

Eh. The book was alright, not too bad but not too great either. It was in the middle. I would recommend to some people.

2STAR

The book could’ve been better. I would recommend it to a few, perhaps.

1STAR

I wouldn’t read this again and I’m unlikely to recommend it to people unless I know it would be their cup of tea.

 

* = In regards to action books, I like books about assassins. So if your book has a character that’s as bad-ass as Victor from Tom Woods Victor the Assassin series (The Enemy, The Hunter, The Game, Better Off Dead) or your book is similar then chances are I’ll accept.

** = I’m very picky when it comes to crime / mystery books. I will generally accept these unless they have a lot of gore and horror to it. I suffer from anxiety and night-terrors so because of this, books with too much graphic detail will stick in my head and generally trigger this anxiety.

*** = New Adult is accepted on a basis that the book that is being requested to review is not in the form of erotica / overly sexualized romance. Some can stomach this, but personally, I’d rather avoid.
