About


This is a place for me to write about anything and everything I have read. If there's one thing I have it's a passion for its books. I guess you could say I'm a bit addicted to books. I'll read almost anything that seems appealing to me, whether it's the subject matter, the title, the author, or just the cover art. I believe you can always take something away from a good book; a bit of entertainment, inspiration, a thirst for more knowledge, or a life lesson.

Although I am a freelance book reviewer the emphasis here is on the 'free'. I do not get paid for my reviews. I personally read every book reviewed and write all reviews myself, so you can be sure that every review is my own personal opinion of that book.

Feel free to leave me a comment on any book I’ve reviewed, or if you have written a book you would like me to review please read the 'Requests' section below before you Email Me. I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

Reviews
~Reviews~
Aside from my review and the book cover, all my reviews include general book details such as publication date, ISBN and retail price. Alongside this I also give a recommended target audience as well as links to publisher, author and book related webpage's where applicable.
I always try to read books and post reviews as often as I can.

~Genres~
For the most part I read any fiction written for children, young adults and adults.
However I do have a preference for fantasy and science fiction, as well as murder mysteries.

~Rating System~
I rate books on a scale from 1-5 stars, 1 being the lowest and 5 the highest. My rating system for my reviews can be found listed in the sidebar on the left with links included.

~Around the Web~
At the top right-hand sidebar you will find a list of links under the heading 'FIND ME @', these are the sites around the web where me and my reviews can also be found.

Requests
~Requests~
I welcome requests for book reviews from authors and publishers alike, however it is not always possible for me to accept every offer I receive. Requests are generally accepted based on whether I think I am able to give an honest review to do the book justice, on time constraints and of course on whether the book is of interest to me.

Generally it can take anywhere up to a month or two for me to review a book depending on how many books I have in my 'to read' pile. However for eBooks expect it to take anywhere between two to three months, sometimes more, simply because reading digital copies is not as easily accessible to me.

I do accept requests from independent authors and love supporting independent and little known authors. It is always a treat to discover hidden gems from independent authors.

If you have a book you would like me to review or think I may enjoy, feel free to Contact me and I will get back to you as soon as I can. If you could it would be helpful to include a little about the book and / or a webpage about the book for me to view.

~Formats~
My preferred format for books being reviewed is a good old fashioned bound print copy. For me it is much easier to have an actual copy of the book I am reviewing, and most times I can get a review out sooner if in this format.

However, in the case of those books that exist only in the digital world then I accept an epub format or failing that a PDF. Smashwords coupons are also an easily accessible way for me to download the digital formats I accept. Please note that an eBook will take longer to review then a physical book.

*** Please Note. Due to time constraints, inconvenience, eye strain and an inability to keep up with demand I am, for the time being at least, no longer accepting ebooks for review. However if you are an author or publisher with a physical book you would like reviewed I would be more then happy to take your request. ***

Other
~Pages~
Around my blog I have several pages and links set up to help you find and navigate through the books I have reviewed. In the left-hand sidebar I have links to my books reviewed sorted by 'STAR RATINGS', 'AGE GROUPS', 'THEMES' and 'SERIES'. At the top of my blog you will find pages for 'Reviews', 'Authors', 'Reading Group Guides', downloads or 'Fun Extras', 'Wallpapers' and 'Giveaways'.

~Buttons~
My blog buttons are located at the bottom left-hand sidebar, feel free to grab a button for your webpage.


Explore, have fun and if you have any other questions please leave a comment or Contact me.
