Review Policy

Dear author or publisher,

Welcome to my blog and thank you for considering me to review your book, but please read through these so you know my preferences.



I try to read and reply to all emails and review requests, even I have to decline. Though due to life obligations, I cannot always respond promptly so please be patient.

I am also a university student and am piled with work, and as such, I reserve the right to read at a suitable pace and cannot promise that the book will be read in a specific time frame, though I will try my hardest.

If I am not enjoying the book and I cannot continue it then I will not force myself to read further, and you will be notified if so. I am a mood reader so please do not expect me to finish it in a certain period unless it’s a blog tour or a book with a reading deadline.

  • Urban & high fantasy

Rating System

I use the 5-star rating system (including half stars) and here is how I rate:

5 stars: absolutely adored it
4 stars: really enjoyed & glad I read it
3 stars: was okay but didn’t blow me away
2 stars: was not great and really didn’t enjoy it
1 star: disappointed and wasted my reading time

I will email you once the review/post is live and I will always provide my honest opinion.
