Book Review Bank

Welcome to the Review Bank! This is a new page I’m launching for 2021, with a handily organised list of reviews I’ve written to help you navigate my blog and find some of my older reviews.

Any authors with Eastern names where the family name precedes given names have been alphabetised by family name. eg. Han Kang is under H for Han.

This page includes links to advertisements as I often receive copies of books to review. All links to posts where I received a free copy of a book (physical or digital) will be clearly marked with “AD”.

Sometimes, I also review books from publishers I have previously worked with. Any reviews where I have previously worked with publishers will be marked with “I have previously received PR products from [publisher name]”. This applies to any posts written from when a publisher agrees to send me a book until 12 months after my review was posted.
