Review Policy

I am currently taking review requests. Although please be aware due to current commitments the reviews may be a little slow when it comes to producing them. All reviews will be published in a timely manner.

My Review Policy and Requesting a Review:

If you are an author or a publisher and you would like me to review your book or work with me, please read this page in full before getting into contact with me. All contact details can be found when clicking on the “Contact” tab in the main menu bar.

My favourite genres are young adult, new adult, romance, classics. fantasy, retellings and contemporary. I will also accept genres such as thriller/mystery, science fiction, and short story collections. I rarely read non-fiction or horror however if they involve a theme or context that I have already spoken about on my blog and that you know I enjoyed I would be willing to read them.

When pitching a book to me, your request should include:

  • Title of the book, author’s name and/or publisher’s name and genre.
  • The publication/release date, please include if the book is not yet released so that I can make it a priority to read it.
  • The synopsis of the book, and main themes if it is not one of my preferred or accepted genres.
  • An estimated timeframe in which you would like me to read the book, but please keep in mind that if I accept your request, I might not be able to follow this strictly due to my busy schedule. But I will do my best in any case.

I accept books in the following formats: finished physical copies (paperback or hardcover), physical ARCs, eARCs, ebooks (PDF, .mobi or Kindle). Once I have requested to read the book, if it is a physical copy, I will give you my postal address, to only be used for reviewing and other book-related purposes.

My Review Style:

All of my reviews will be posted in short on my Instagram  and then subsequently on my blog and on my Twitter account (linked from the blog). I will not tag the author or the publisher unless I have been asked to, so please make sure to inform me of your preferences. All review titles include “Book Review”, the title of the book and the author’s name if you wish to search for it later. If you would like me to send the link to the review to you by email please request it. The book will also be included in my monthly wrap-up and/or my monthly TBR posts.

All of the reviews I write are honest, genuine and respectful. I will always reflect my personal opinions of each book, however, because I am only human and cannot love every single book I read, I cannot promise a 5-star review. Also, I don’t consider any book as “bad”, just “not for me”, so when reviewing the book I will always be respectful to the author and be as constructive as possible in explaining the reasons why I did not enjoy the book. I do not believe in attacking the author or the book and will never be rude, unkind or inconsiderate, my views are solely my own, and because I did not like the book doesn’t mean that someone else will not love it, so please don’t take anything I might say as personal or cruel. Please don’t think that because you sent me a free copy that it will necessarily be a 5-star review, that is not my policy.

Finally, I aim to publish my posts twice a week normally on Friday and then another week day unless I have been asked to do so on a specific day other than my scheduled posting. Once again, because of my schedule, as much as I try to stick to two days a week often there will be one post a week.

All details to request a review or for any other blog related things can be found on the contact page and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible. Thank you.

I look forward to working with you

Love Always,

Gee xoxo
