Reviewing Policy

**Please note: I am running this blog in my spare time, alongside many other activities, which means that I cannot always respond to review requests.

Preferred genres include literary fiction, historical fiction, crime fiction, thrillers and poetry. I also have a soft spot for occasional YA and sci-fi…

Please read the information below and then email me with a few details about the book and the reason why you’d like me to review it.

You can also contact me via Twitter @createdtoread

Please do subscribe to my blog, by typing your email address in the box on the right… or scrolling down if you’re viewing this on a phone.

Please note:

  • All reviews are completely honest, however many free books or other perks I receive. I simply couldn’t recommend a book if I didn’t enjoy it.
  • As a natural consequence of having many contacts within the book world, particularly in South Wales, I will occasionally review books written by people I know. I will try wherever possible to be fair and unbiased.
  • My main focus is on books published in the UK, with a particular interest in Welsh writing in English.
  • I’m unable to read books in digital form at the moment.
  • If I receive a free book or any form of payment for writing a review, this will be stated within the blog post.
  • Sending me a review copy of a book does not guarantee a review. If I don’t enjoy reading your book, I may decide not to review it. Please don’t be disappointed if this is the case – mine is only one opinion of many. It is also possible that I may not post a review because I was unable to write something of acceptable quality.
  • It may take a bit of time for me to respond.
  • I will not review erotica or anything of that nature.
