I’m just a regular working person who enjoys reading and sharing the books I read with others. Away from books, I also enjoy cosmetics, cooking (especially baking), computing and other things that don’t start with C! (Like eating and travel, both within Australia and internationally).
Please do not copy my reviews (whole or in part) without permission. I work hard on these! Contact me via email first and we’ll work something out. I check my email several times a day so you won’t have to wait too long.
I am happy to accept books for review from publishers, provided that the books sound like something I’d read. Note that as I work full time and study part time, I can’t always be super speedy in reading and reviewing. I do try though. Please don’t be offended if I can’t review your book. Sometimes, life just gets in the way.
I have reviewed books previously for Bloomsbury, Harlequin, Random House, Allen & Unwin, Simon & Schuster, Harper Collins, Signal 8 Press, Hachette, Escape Publishing, Destiny Romance and The Reading Room. I have also had a book review published in The Weekend West (state newspaper for Western Australia).
I enjoy general fiction, literary fiction, historical fiction, romance, travel books, biographies, books in translation and cookbooks. However, I’ll always mention in my review how I obtained the book and give my unbiased opinion of it. Life is just too short for bad books!
I don’t read science fiction, religious books, fantasy or YA. I don’t respond to requests to read these – they take away valuable reading time.
I prefer to read paper books (ARC is fine) or ebooks in Kindle format.
If this sounds great, please be aware I live in Australia and consider shipping fees for paper boks before asking me to review. Asking me to review, then retracting your offer because of shipping fees is a waste of everyone’s time.
