Review Policy

pjzc7lot2ig-hope-house-pressIf you are here wondering whether I would be interested in reviewing your book, then you’ve come to the right place! Before contacting me, read the details below to see if your book could be my next read…

Book format:

I will accept ARCs, proof copies and already published books (incl. self-published books). I usually only read books in hardback or paperback form. However, I am willing to accept eBooks and audiobooks if they are a genre I like (see below).

Book genres:

I will accept the following genres for review:

  • Young Adult
  • Poetry
  • Short fiction stories
  • Contemporary
  • Thriller
  • Experimental fiction
  • LGBTQ+ fiction
  • Non-fiction
  • Humour

I’m not interested in:

  • Romance
  • Erotica
  • Historical fiction
  • Travel Writing


You’ll see that my blog contains reviews of books and magazines. Regarding reviews, I am happy to receive the following:

  • Independent magazines
  • Literary magazines
  • Creative writing magazines

Here are links to a few I have already reviewed, to give you an idea of what I like:

If you have a new magazine that you feel would benefit from a review, then get in contact and we can discuss further.

Review Policy:

If you are thinking of sending me a review request, please consider the following:

Publishers: Books received for review by publishers take priority, and I will endeavor to have your book reviewed within a month of receiving it, or by any deadline attached to the book (such as publication date or blog tour date).

Websites/print publications: Books received from a website or publication on behalf of an author will have an agreed deadline with the person sending the request.

Authors: Boom received from authors directly will have the least priority (though in some cases will be pushed to the top, for example local authors in Nottingham). There is no guarantee that I will review the book, and I will not accept or agree on a deadline.

Blog Tours:

I am part of the Legend 100 Club, which means that from time to time I will participate in a blog tour. Here are details of my upcoming blog tours:

Hotel on Shadow Lake by Daniela Tully, on Wednesday 21st February 2018
The Zero and the One by Ryan Ruby, on Monday 19th March 2018
