Review Guidelines

Rating System

I’m old school, so I use a 1-5 star rating system. I don’t do things by halves. Its all or nothing, baby.

1  Not for me.

2A bit of a slog.

3 Good for what it was.

4 An excellent read!

5 An absolute favourite!

My reviews are spoiler free and their content will be age appropriate for the book’s target audience. They may also contain Amazon Associate links, and will also be posted on Goodreads.

(*I will not write a review for a book rated 1 star, but will rate it and provide a short explanation on Goodreads.)

Submission Guidelines

If you would like to submit a book for me to review, please read the points below, and submit your request through this form.

  • I have a preference for Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Historical, and Mystery genres, in both Adult and YA categories. I am happy to read books in a variety of other genres, including non-fiction, if the synopsis intrigues me.
  • I am also able to review books in the Pre-schooler category (2-4 years). Please note, reviews will be based on my son Topher’s enjoyment, not mine!
  • I am currently only accepting physical copies of books to review, but I may make an exception for digital copies in certain circumstances.
  • The book does not need to be recently published or an ARC.
  • I cannot guarantee when your book will be read. If you require the review for promotional purposes by a specific date, please let me know, and I will do my best to accommodate your request.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me!
