Book Review Policy

Thank you so much for your interest in Curled up with a good book ❤️

**I am no longer taking review requests**

If you are currently waiting for a review from me, I apologise for the delay.  Uni has put me behind quite a bit, but I promise I will get to your book as soon as possible!  Thank you for your patience.

I love to read, it’s an active passion of mine, and I’m more than happy to receive requests for reviews on my blog.  I try really hard to accept as many requests as I can if they fall within the genres that I do read, and am especially happy to accept reviews from self-published and new authors to try and help you spread the word!  I take part in a lot of blog tours so don’t always have as much time as I’d like to read and review,


My reviews will always be 100% my honest opinion.  I like to let my readers know what I enjoyed about the book, how I felt about the characters and how the book might have affected me emotionally.  If I have a few negatives to point out I will do this as constructively as I can.

I also share my views on Goodreads, Amazon, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and NetGalley (if applicable).


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Absolutely LOVED this book and will add to my ‘to be read again’ pile!  Will actively be looking for more books from the author.  Highly recommended by me!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Really enjoyed this book and will keep an eye out for more from the author.  Definitely recommended by me!

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Enjoyed this book but may have been a few aspects that I didn’t enjoy quite as much.  May not be to my taste but still a good book.

⭐️⭐️ or below: Not really to my taste but I understand that others may enjoy it.  (I will always point out the reasons why; and if I’m not enjoying it and am likely to give ⭐️⭐️ stars or below, I will contact the author/blog tour organiser before posting)


  • I am more than happy to hear from authors or publishers for book review requests.  However, I can’t guarantee a timeframe for reading/reviewing, it will depend on how many other books I have to read/review at that time.  If I’m happy to accept the request, we can agree a rough timescale but please be aware that sometimes life happens and I don’t always get to it as quickly as hoped….although I will do my best!  If you have a deadline, please do let me know and I will do my very, very best to reach it for you!
  • I currently accept paperback, hardback, audiobook and ebooks (preferably mobi), however a physical copy is my preference where possible.
  • I am happy for authors and publishers to use quotes from my blog as long as they are attributed to my blog.
  • I do try to reply to all requests but sometimes I struggle with time so I will come back to you as soon as I can.  However, if you haven’t heard from me within 4 weeks, please assume I’m not interested (with my apologies!).
  • I don’t receive payment for any of the books I review, and will always give an honest opinion.
  • I am currently trialling Amazon Associate links on my blog for which I will receive a small payment if a book is purchased through this link.  This is the only form of monetisation on my blog, which is at no additional cost to those using the link.
  • All views are my own.


I’m pretty open and enjoy most genres so feel free to put in a request!  I will consider non-fiction but will only accept if I feel I would really enjoy it.  I won’t read poetry, erotica or anything overly sport related so please don’t contact me if your book is in relation to any of these (sorry!).


If you’d like to send me a request, please email me at  I’d really appreciate it if you could also give me the following information so I can make a decision:

  • Book title
  • Book length
  • Genre
  • Blurb
  • Deadline that you are working towards if you have one
  • Whether you’re a publisher/indie author etc
  • Any other information you think will help me make a decision 😌

Once we’ve agreed to go ahead, please send me any information you’d like me include such as author bio, purchase links and social media links.  I will then tag you in any relevant posts across social media.  I will also endeavour to send you links to the reviews of your book.
