Review Policy

** Currently not accepting new review requests **

I review a combination of books I have purchased and kindly received as ARCs therefore I am happy to receive requests from authors and publishers. For self-published books, I prefer requests from those who I have already conversed with on Twitter or within Facebook groups. I like to read both eBooks (Kindle) or hard-copies (I miss holding a proper book if I use my kindle for too long!)

My favourite genres are crime fiction (mainly UK or US based), women’s fiction, contemporary and literary fiction. Please note, I don’t read Sci-Fi, Western or Erotica

I read and blog for enjoyment, I am not a professional reviewer but I will give a balanced, honest subjective opinion on the book.

My reviews follow the same format whereby the title and author will be in the post title. The body of the post will include

  • publishing information (publisher and date)
  • an image of the front cover
  • the synopsis (usually from Amazon or Goodreads)
  • my honest opinion

Whilst I do not rate the book on my blog, it may be rated on the associated tweets (on a scale 1-5). It will also be reviewed on Goodreads and Amazon.

I am also open to cover reveals, excerpts, interview/Q&As, blog tours and guest posts to help support book launches. Please get in touch by emailing me at havebooksblog@gmail.com
