Review Policy

Dear Authors and Publishers,

Thank you for taking time to visit my blog. My blog is currently on hold until the 2nd of June when I will have finished my exams. At this point I will be accepting Interview requests only.

I will not be able to respond to all requests and will only accept the most suitable requests for my blog. But if you would like to be featured in another way, such as a brief interview regarding your product or a guest post, then feel free to contact me.

My blog is dedicated to good reviews of books that I think deserve more visibility than already given to them in the United Kingdom. I believe that is why this blog is unique and I appreciate you considering me for your product.

Where are my reviews posted?

The review of your product will be posted up on my blog. But I will also upload it onto Goodreads and the link will be posted on my Twitter account @TheReadingRose and on my Facebook page therefore increasing publicity for your book.

Genres I Review:

I am selective of what I read and this is the reason you will not find many books on my blog under 3 stars. Below is a list of genres that I am happy to consider accepting.

  • Young Adult
  • Paranormal Fiction
  • Urban Fantasy
  • Fantasy
  • Fairy Tale and Mythology
  • Science Fiction
  • Dystopia
  • Romance
  • Paranormal Romance
  • Children’s Fiction

My Book Reviews Include (At Least):

  • Title
  • Author
  • Publisher
  • Genres
  • Page numbers
  • Where I acquired the book
  • Links to buy on Amazon
  • Current Prices
  • The cover on the copy I read
  • A cover image from another country
  • Goodreads description (Or your own if you provide one)
  • My review
  • A few spoilerless quotes
  • An overall rating out of 5 stars.
  • A selection of similar books from goodreads that the readers may enjoy

But this can be changed depending on the situation and if there is anything else you would like me to add, just let me know.

Previous Interview Requests:



Please note my reviews are never guaranteed. If your book is too far along in the series and I have not read the ones before it, your chances in getting a review are lower. I like to be able to read and take in the scene and character developments that are set up in the first novels in order for me to give a more realistic review. I always give fully honest reviews; that means if I did not manage to finish your book or did not like your book, I will review it as so. I will always highlight the good points of the book over the bad however, as I like to be more of a positive reviewer even if I did not like the book overall.
