Review Policy


I have previously worked with several publishers, including Comma Press, Fitzcarraldo Editions, and History Through Fiction to review their releases. I am currently OPEN to requests for reviews. Before contacting me, please read this page in full to ensure I am the right fit to review your book. Information here is subject to change at any time. I may or may not be able to immediately update this page to reflect any changes, but any changes will be communicated to you if you reach out.

To my readers…

My reviews are always honest, regardless of how I received a copy of a book. Generally speaking, however, I will only review a book on my blog if I enjoyed it.

Unless stated otherwise, books I review were purchased by me (or family/friends), or borrowed from a library. Any reviews where I received a review copy are clearly marked.

I earn no money through this blog, though I do occasionally receive free books to review. Any advertisements you may see are placed there by WordPress, and I receive no revenue from these.

My comments section is moderated by WordPress. Spam, or rude comments will be deleted. I regularly check my spam folder and will reinstate any non-spam comments.

For authors and publishers…

I cannot guarantee I will accept your request.

Any books received for review purposes will be clearly marked as such.

Please send any requests via email to

Accepting a request does not guarantee a review, and I reserve the right to write & publish a negative review if I wish to, and I reserve the right to post on whichever platforms I choose.

Generally, I will publish ARC reviews the Saturday before release. Non-ARC reviews will depend on my schedule, and when I am able to post.

Reviews may be delayed if requests are made too close to publication (less than a month), or if a copy is not provided quickly. They may also be delayed for personal reasons, which I may not be able to communicate.

My preferred format is ebook, in either .MOBI or .PDF. I also accept physical copies. Please bear in mind for all requests I am based in the UK.

My preferred genres are: literary fiction, contemporary, historical and non-fiction (historical or political). I am happy to read works that contain sensitive or potentially triggering topics.

I will not accept YA, MG, fantasy, self-help or romance requests.

If you do not receive a response to your request within one week, please assume I am unable to accept. I do try to respond to all requests however.

I include trigger and content warnings in my reviews. These will be included if I feel it necessary.
