PLEASE NOTE: Due to a high workload I am NOT currently able to review books on request or to respond to review requests.
This page will be updated as and when I am able to accept review requests again. Thank you for your interest.
How I review books
- To help readers and parents I may add age-appropriate guidelines. These are usually flexible guidelines as all children develop their reading skills and abilities at different rates. However, parents and others looking for books for children often find these guidelines helpful. I will usually follow a publishers guidelines on age recommendation. Where the information is not available from the publisher I use my best judgment, independent research, and other sources.
- To support children, parents and other readers in deciding if they are comfortable reading a book’s content I may occasionally add “content notes” to reviews. These may include notes on distressing scenes, sexual content, swearing, disturbing violence etc.
Note on book sources
- I am not compensated for writing reviews. When an author or publisher has sent a book to me I identify this under the “Source” category at the top of the book review. If a source is not listed I have obtained the book by either purchasing it myself or borrowing it from a library.
Note on compensated links
