Review Policy

Howdy! Thanks for taking interest in my book reviews.

If you have a book you would like me to review, please read these guidelines before you send me an email.

I Don’t Accept:

  • *Books I have to pay for.*
  • Self-published books
  • Ebooks
  • Erotica
  • Middle Grade, Picture Books, Books for Children
  • Comics or Graphic Novels, because I wouldn’t know how to critique that.
  • Audiobooks
  • Dystopias, just because I don’t want to read any more dystopias.
  • Paranormal romance


I Have A Strong Preference For:

  • Hardback books, but paperbacks are also fine.
  • Thrillers, mysteries, literary, science fiction and fantasy, book club and upmarket fiction


If you have read all of the above and still want a curmudgeon like me to review your book, submit a brief description of your book’s plot and your publishing timeline via my contact page.

I reserve the right to decline any book based purely on my own whims and desires. I receive many more book review requests than I could possibly read. I will only respond to an itty-bitty fraction of them, but thank you for sending them nonetheless.
