Book Review Policy

When it comes to reviewing books, I will always review on Amazon and Goodreads as well as having a specific blog post. The reviews will also be shared on my Twitter account and my Facebook page.

I am willing to read and review books from all genres even if it is not my preferred read. My reviews will always be honest and given my genuine rating. Any criticism I provide will purely be constructive and not intended to upset/offend in any way – I do not like giving negative feedback where possible.

My preferred genres are:

  • Thrillers (including psychological)
  • Crime
  • Suspense
  • Mystery
  • Police procedural

I am a sucker for a physical copy of a book (read why here) but I am happy and able to accept the following formats:

  • .mobi
  • Kindle
  • Paperback
  • Hardback

(Unfortunately I cannot accept .epub or .pdf files as my Kindle rejects them)

If you want me to review your book, please contact me at or fill in my contact form and I will aim to respond within 48 hours. I often have posts scheduled in advance so I should be able to give you a realistic time frame of when your book can be read/reviewed by. Once I have read your book, I will provide you with the review link and also confirmation that I have reviewed elsewhere.


I look forward to working with you 🙂

One thought on “Book Review Policy

  1. Hello, I’ve read with interest several of your reviews. I appreciate your straightforward and honest approach. Of my four novels, RESISTANCE MUSIC may be most suited to your tastes, being a thriller set in Spanish Basque Country with strong female protagonists and plenty of historical and cultural atmosphere aimed at providing more to take away than just an enticing story. That said, my website gives details on all my books and I suspect you might enjoy one or more of the others as well. I’m not a genre author, as you will see. I like to think that all my books fall somewhere in that vast pool called ‘literary’….

    I would love to send you POD paperbacks on any or all of my books if they intrigue you for reviews.

    I hope you might find time to have a look at my site and let me know if you see anything you want to have a look at. Thanks for your time. T.A. Barnes
