Contact information/Review ratings & Policy

Due to time restraints, I do not accept requests from vanity presses or self published authors. I welcome receiving books to review from publishers and mainstream authors only.

 I am happy to receive books in ARC format, galleys, or as finished copies.

On receipt of a title for review, it will be placed in my reading mountain. pile.  Please let me know if you have a review time line, and I will do my best to accommodate you, otherwise I reserve the right to review sent books when I'm able and without a deadline.

I enjoy reading a mixed bag of books.  I love reading young adult titles, paranormal, crime novels, steampunk, mysteries, thrillers, romances, fantasy, coming of age novels, and anything in between.  I'm also happy to read non fiction titles.

We are a hands on family with education, and also blog about some of the resources we use, including books elsewhere.

I welcome taking part in blog tours, author interviews and hosting giveaways. Time permitting I may share my review using Facebook (Networked Blogs), Amazon UK, Twitter, Goodreads, Shelfari and LibraryThing.  All posts are auto-sent to Twitter.

My reviews will be fair and honest.  If there's something I don't like about a book I will give those reasons, as well as the positives.  I won't foul mouth a book because it wasn't for me.

You can contact me at:

Please note I'm based in the UK.

I'd love to hear from you!
