Review Policy

At this stage, I am not accepting books for review unless they are on  my wishlist, or an author I have previously read and loved. I apologise in advance.

Want me to read your book? Please read everything before requesting.

First off, due to the author verses reviewers controversy going on I feel the need to state that: My reviews are my opinions of the novels I have read. My opinion can be positive or negative, though I try to be constructive. Therefore I will give your book my honest opinion so please only contact me if you can live with it if I don't like it. I do not receive compensation for my reviews, nor will I change a rating or review because you don't like what I have said. 

I am extremely busy between my family, and my university course work. I try to read, and review for my blog and update my blog as often as possible. However, I limit my reviews of books to the ones I have on my shelf, or personally request via netgalley or edelweiss, or something I am anticipating. I try to read and review books within a reasonable time but can not guarantee a time frame due to my commitments.  

If you have a book that you think I would like to read, and it is in a genre I prefer, please feel free to contact me. However, I reserve the right to turn down a request, please do not be offended. It will either be because I do not think it is suitable for me, or I will not enjoy it, therefore not providing a fair review. 

If you would like to be assured that I would review your book, please check my wishlist. They are the books I am anticipating.

Genres I prefer (either adult or YA):
  • Fantasy
  • Science Fiction
  • Paranormal
  • Dystopian/Post Apocalyptic
  • Contemporary
  • Chick Lit
  • Mysteries/Thrillers
  • True Crime
  • True Stories
I generally do not read short stories, erotica, historical fiction or middle grade books.

Review Request

I accept physical and digital copies, with a preference to physical copies as they are easier for me to read during the day - giving me more time to read the novel.
If you only have digital copies, I prefer mobi or pdf files for my Kindle. (This is also probably a cheaper option for most, as I live in Australia).
I do read Adobe Digital Editions but am restricted on the amount of time I have to read them as I can only read them on my computer. 

What to include in a review request:
- Your name (author/publisher?)
- A website url
- A synopsis (Goodreads links help)
- Book Title 
- Release Date
- Whether it is part of a series
It must be a finished product - Please do not send my transcripts, or incomplete submissions. 

Please do not address review requests as "Dear Blogger" or "Dear Blogging Friend". It is rude not to use my name. It is all over this blog. It's not hard to find if you really want me to review your book. ;-) P.s. Incorrectly spelling my name is just as bad.

Giveaway Policy

I will happily consider hosting giveaways for both physical and digital copies of novels, also swag items. However, I am not responsible for shipping costs or distribution of the prize/s. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. ms_delirium (at) hotmail (dot) com. I will respond at my earliest convenience.
