Find Out More About My
Review Policy

I review books that I have been thrilled and delighted by, sharing them in the hope that you will enjoy them too. I never accept free or discounted copies in return for a review, but always pay the full price for my own copy. I prefer supporting traditional bookshops (including secondhand bookshops) where at all possible. I love discovering new books and different authors this way.


Because I have an entirely free choice as to which books to review, you are very unlikely to see a negative review on my blog. Instead, I write about the books I have genuinely enjoyed, presenting both positive and less positive aspects of each book reviewed in an objective and informative manner.


I never review a book I could not bring myself to finish, or felt only so-so about. I can set aside a book I really didn't enjoy at all, or which while undeniably well written simply didn't speak to me as an individual, in the privacy of my own home. If I don't feel enthusiastic about a book, I can't expect you to do so or to even enjoy reading my review of it.


I do not accept any kind of payment or benefit in exchange for a review, and I am not registered for affiliate marketing.
