Review Policy




I am happy to be contacted with a view to reading and reviewing books.  Due to dexterity problems, I only read on kindle. I will consider most genres, but fantasy, horror and sci-fi are really not my kind of thing, although I have dabbled in lighter paranormal reads. If I accept to read your novel, I will give you a rough guideline as to when I shall be able to read it. If, however, I cannot complete the book then no review shall be offered.

I am very happy to be invited to take part in Blog Tours and / or Blog Blitzes, either by offering a review or an extract or a giveaway.

PLEASE NOTE:  What I offer is a review* and not a critique**

review*     – an article which gives a personal opinion about a new book, play etc.

critique** – a detailed explanation of the problems of something, such as a book



Preferred genres – in no particular order:

  • Crime, especially police procedurals
  • Mystery, including ‘cozy’ and historical
  • Thriller
  • Romantic Comedy
  • Historical
  • Family Saga
  • Amish and Quaker



I always provide honest reviews – professional, not personal. I do not include spoilers in my reviews but rather give a brief outline of the story plus my opinions on my experience as a reader.

Honesty and integrity are important to me; my review will be exactly the same regardless of which site it appears on and that includes this blog.

In addition to inclusion in this blog, I share my completed review on the following:

  • Goodreads
  • iGoogle
  • Twitter
  • Facebook, my own timeline


And also (where applicable) on the day of publication (for arc’s) or when my review is completed for those already released:

  • Kobo



Please do not be offended if I do not accept your book for review – this is usually because of time constraints. As much as I try to elasticate my days, I haven’t quite managed it yet!

Honesty and integrity are important to me; the review on my blog is exactly the same as the one which appears on all other sites. If I don’t finish a book then I don’t offer a review but all published reviews are my own opinions.

You can contact me here. I will always try to get back to you within 48 hours, outwith that please feel free to remind me.
