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).
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 and The Reading Room. I have also had a book review published in The Weekend West (state newspaper).
I enjoy general fiction, literary fiction, historical fiction, travel books, biographies, books in translation and cookbooks. However, I’ll always mention in my review how I obtained the book and give my opinion of it. Life is just too short for bad books!
I don’t read science fiction, religious books, fantasy or YA. If there’s a dragon or alien in it, I’m not your woman!
I prefer to read paper books (ARC is fine) or ebooks in epub format. Documents in pdf don’t work well in my eReader!
