Review Policy

Thanks for your interest in my blog. I’m more than happy to accept books (pre-release or finished copies) for review. If you would like to contact me, please use the form below or on the Contact Me page to do so. Please keep in mind that I live in Australia.

About My Reviews:

I believe it’s important my reviews are honest, and I endeavor to provide thoughtful, constructive reviews in a timely manner. If I do not like a book, I will say so, but I will talk about the book, and give an explanation as to what I did not like--I will never ever attack an author. As much as possible (as whether I like a book is subjective), I try to be objective.
Unfortunately, I can’t promise that acceptance of a book guarantees a review, but this is an exception, not a rule! 

I will happily accept:

  • ARCs
  • Finished Copies
  • ebooks I am not currently accepting eBooks, sorry!

Genres I Accept:

Typically, I enjoy books with a romantic element, but this is by no means a necessity. I read and review within the following genres (both YA and Adult unless otherwise specified):
  • Anything Young Adult
  • Paranormal/Urban Fantasy
  • Fantasy
  • Dystopia
  • Contemporary Fiction (YA only)
  • Mysteries/Thrillers (YA only)
  • Romance (Historical, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy or Contemporary)

I Won't Accept:

For the purposes of this blog, I am not interested in:
  • Non Fiction
  • Literary Fiction
But I do appreciate your consideration.


I will try and read ARC’s in the month prior to their release. I would prefer 1-2 months’ notice be given from receipt of an ARC to publication/expected review date, to give me time to read, and provide a thoughtful review, but I'm flexible. I will never sell or discard an ARC.With pre-published titles, I'll generally post a review somewhere around 2 weeks prior to publication, but not earlier.

When reviewing pre-published books or newly published books, I'm careful not to include spoilers. There's a big difference between a spoiler and a teaser. The whole point of me reading an ARC is to help create buzz, and make people want to read--not ruin a fantastic story!

I receive books from publishers, in exchange for honest reviews. When this is the case, I state so at the end of each post. This doesn't effect my review of the book, or my opinion, and I receive no monetary compensation for anything posted on this site.
When you click on a link to Amazon from, I receive a small referral fee on any purchases made. It won't cost you any more to buy your books this way, but it does help to support this blog.
