Review Policy

As a bookseller, I’m very lucky that I receive a regular supply of reading copies from publishers. If you would like me to review your book, bearing in mind it could take me a while to get to naturally, just drop me a message to aboywithabook@outlook.com

If you’re okay with this, and the book sounds like something I’d enjoy (which it should be, I read almost anything, but there’s a list of favourites down below), I’ll happily accept physical copies, or e-books (preferably kindle compatible).

Preferred Genres

  • Young Adult
    • Fantasy
    • Sci-Fi
    • Contemporary
    • Graphic Novels
  • Middle Grade Fiction
  • Picture Books
  • Japanese Contemporary Fiction

Genres I Won’t Review

  • Religious
  • Horror
  • Adult Crime

The Review

Every review is different. To me, there isn’t a formula that each review should fit into. Books are unique, so their review should be as well.

Each book will get a comprehensive review, including pictures I’ve taken, quotes, and my overall opinion. I use the 5-Star system in use on Goodreads, but I won’t post a review for anything less than 3-Stars. If, for any reason, I either cannot finish your book, or feel that I cannot review it at 3-Stars, I will contact you and we can discuss how to move forward.

A rough guide to the ratings are:

⭐⭐⭐ – I enjoyed this book, and would recommend it

⭐⭐⭐⭐ – This book was great, I’d highly recommend it to anyone

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ – OMG. Yes. This book is brilliant and everyone should read it!
