Review Policy

Thank you for checking out my review policy.  If you are an author and would like me to review your novel or a reader that would like me to discuss a specific book, then you have come to the right place.



GENRES
My favourite genres include:
- Fairy-tale retellings
- Paranormal
- Gothic
- Fantasy
- Dystopian 
- Contemporary 
- Drama
- Mythology 
- Young Adult
- Fiction
- Historical Fiction
- Humor and Comedy
- Sci-Fi

I am open to a great number of genres and am willing to try anything but I tend not to read comics, crime, erotica, graphic novels, horror, mystery, suspense and thriller.


FORMATTING PREFFERENCES
I accept hardcover, paperback, eBooks and audio books.
While I prefer print over audio and eBooks, it is not a requirement and am more than happy to be sent a pdf copy of a novel.
I also accept ARCs and am willing to do some beta reads.
I’d prefer it if the book did have a Goodreads page but it is not a necessity.


WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
I will endeavor to read and review any book within 4 weeks of receiving it however, the time may vary depending on the length of the book and my workload at the time.  If I find I am unable to read and review the book within that time I will get in contact with you.

All of my reviews are posted on my blog, Goodreads, google+ and other social media platforms and I am willing to email the links to any platform you wish to see once they are posted.

My reviews include the cover photo, blurb, a plot summary, my thoughts on the book including the plot, characters, world, etc. and my rating out of 5.  (See my rating system below).  

My reviews are honest and I reserve the right to be open with my opinions on the book.  That being said, I am not nasty or cruel about the books I read, I will merely point out what I did not like about it.

I reserve the right to DNF a book if I find it does not interest me.  I will however, endeavour to complete at least 25% before calling it and will continue reading if other reviewers say that it picks up more towards the end.  Also keep in mind that I could always go back to it at some point in the future.

I will not alter my review if asked – my reviews ensure that potential readers have an idea of what to expect from the book.

I will not accept books that are in a series if I have not read the previous books first.


MY RATING SYSTEM
5/5 – I loved this book, would recommend to any and all.
4/5 – an amazing book, I would recommend but just didn’t quite make it to the top.
3/5 – I did enjoy the book but it was missing a little something, not for everyone but still good.
2/5 – not all that good, I wasn’t a big fan and it didn’t really keep me too engrossed.
1/5 – I wish the I didn’t even bother with it, was not interested at all and would not recommend.
DNF – I do not write reviews or give ratings for books I do not finish on my blog but I will still comment my thoughts on Goodreads.
