Review Policy

Thank you for visiting Read and Live Well.

I am open to requests for book reviews however due to time limitations and reading preferences, I do have some requirements.

Genre

I like to read across a wide variety of genres, however I do not generally read books that are: science-fiction, horror, romance/ erotica, fantasy/ paranormal. Of course there are always exceptions however I will not be accepting review requests from these genres.

I prefer literary fiction, historical fiction, mystery/ thrillers, and occasionally contemporary fiction. I do enjoy short story collections that are literary fiction and magical realism.

Series

I will not accept review requests for books in a series.

Format

I do not enjoy reading e-books therefore will not be accepting review requests of this type.

Self-published books

Due to time constraints, I will not accept requests for review of self-published books. I do like to support Australian women’s writing however, so there may be exceptions to this.

Guarantees

I do guarantee a review of every book I accept for review, however there will not be a guaranteed time frame. I will always endeavour to publish my review within a reasonably period.

I will always publish the review on my blog, Read and Live Well. I also post my reviews to Goodreads and Amazon, as well as mentioning them on various social media sites, however these additional means of coverage is not guaranteed when I accept a book for review. I retain the right to publish the review on any other publications I choose to submit it to.

Due to time constraints, I do not guarantee a response to each individual review request. If I have not responded to your request within a reasonable time frame, please assume I am not interested in reviewing that particular book. I do appreciate each request.

 

Thank you for your interest!

The Anti-Cool Girl by Rosie Waterland.
..
Rosie first came to fame as the writer of the popular and hilarious recaps of Australia's The Bachelor on Mamamia.
..
I highly recommend this book and her podcast called Mum Says My Memoir Is A Lie.
