Reviewing policy

I am a UK reviewer and I do accept books from publishers and authors for review, in hard copy and Kindle formats. I upload my reviews to Amazon and Goodreads, and use Twitter to publicise new posts on my blog. Please let me know if there is a particular date range you’d like the review posted in and I’ll let you know if that’s possible.

My reviews feature cover art, the cover blurb and my honest opinions. I don’t like reviews with spoilers, so try to avoid giving the plot away myself. I don’t use a grading system on the blog. I always aim to give fair reviews and will be as positive as possible while seeking to provide a fair assessment of the book’s qualities.

I prefer not to publish negative reviews: if I don’t enjoy a book I don’t finish it (there are too many books in the world to waste time on those that aren’t for me!), and I don’t think it’s fair to review something I haven’t read completely.

Books received may also get a mention in occasional features, providing cover art, a brief description or comment and a link to further information. I am also happy to discuss blog tour posts, giveaways and other promotions, especially for books I have enjoyed or am enthusiastic about.

As you can see from the reviews featuring on the blog, I am particularly interested in reviewing Children’s, YA, Crime and Fantasy novels. I have a special fondness for writing which makes use of folklore, myth and magic.

If you would like me to review a book for you, please email me.

  1. Hi,

    Â My name is Rebecca and i run essenceofarcadia.com. I am contacting you because i see you are a prominent Amazon reviewer and you also run a website.

    We are about to launch some high end aromatherapy products in Amazon and on our site. We are looking for a limited number of reviewers to obtain a free sample of these in return for an honest review on Amazon and ideally one of the following:-

    1) a link from your website in the form of a review.
    2) a video review on Amazon

    I apologise if this sounds presumptuous but we only have a limited amount of review copies to give out and we would love you to have one. The products we are offering are below

    1)Â a 14 set of oils here http://theeliteboard.us12.list-manage.com/track/click?u=0e262ed432b4800072b304147&id=26f0ca510f&e=116fadcbe0 which will be available next week
    2) a 6 set version of oils as above available next week
    3) our pebble diffuser set which you can see here http://www.essenceofarcadia.com/product/pebble-diffuser/ and available on Amazon in late November
    4) our diamond diffuser set which you can see here http://www.essenceofarcadia.com/product/diamond-diffuser/ again available in early December
