Review Policy

Review Policy

I am happy to receive pitches and review requests from authors through the contact channels posted above. Please do not send me the file straight away via email as I will not open it for obvious security reasons.

I reserve the right not to review a book, particularly if I didn’t get on with it or finish it. It is currently my personal policy to not review books I have not finished.

My reviews are always honest and often relate to my personal experience reading the novel and my opinions which may be subjective. I aim to combine this experience with more traditional critical thoughts in my reviews too as I did English at uni and just can’t get out of that mindset.

If I do not respond to your pitch within 14 days, please take it that at this time I do not have the time to review your book or don’t think it’s a suitable match for me.

Please do not send me a review request at this time for:

1. Fiction that is not young adult or crossover.
2. Non-fiction.
3. Religious YA.

I will consider giveaways, blog tours, guest posts and interviews as well. If you have any questions or would like to request a review do not hesitate to contact me.

    • Hi Alex,
      Thanks for your questions and visiting the blog.
      At this point in time I don’t review MG novels sadly, but I do accept ebook arcs. I prefer physical copies generally, but as I use netgalley and have an ereader I can review eARCS.
      Hope that helps,

  1. Hi

    I would like to request a review but cannot seem to find any contact details, so I hope it’s okay to post here.

    I am writing to see if you would be interested in reviewing my book, The Hidden Realms of Firestone, a sci-fi fantasy adventure set in a school. Details can be found here:

      Hi Linda,

      Yes commenting here is fine. My contact details are also on the About ChooseYA page, but I can edit this page and make that clearer.

      Best wishes,
