Review Policy

My review policy is simple

  • I will ALWAYS give a full, frank and honest review. I focus mainly on plot, characterisation and readability. I do not take money and will always clearly state whether I bought or was given a book  to review.
  • I accept ARC’s, Finished Proofs in Hard Copy or ebook. Kindle is best for ebook. I adore “real books” but please note I am Ireland/UK based at the moment when sending Proofs through mail but by all means send them!
  • My main focus is YA and NA but I also like to review – Contemporary, Paranormal, Crime, Sci-fi, Women’s and Historical Fiction. I will review non-fiction Bio’s and Health books.
  • I post my reviews on Goodreads, Amazon, Book Depository, Barnes and Noble, WH Smith and Waterstones too.
  • I love to participate in Blog Tours.
  • If a book needs to be reviewed by a certain date I have no problem sticking to a deadline.
  • New Books will usually be reviewed between two weeks before pub date to two weeks after unless date has been previously agreed with Publicist.
  • I will always reply to review requests within a week whether I am agreeing to review it or not.
  • Any questions about my review policy or any comments please feel free to contact me at whatdanididnext [at] gmail [dot] com

Ratings are simpler:

★★★★★ OMG This book is amazing, what are you doing reading this?? You should be reading the book!! Hurry, GET IT!!!

★★★★ Great read, highly enjoyable, would probably make it into my repeat read pile.

★★★ Enjoyable, Solid plot or characterisation but lacking something… (btw these days a 3 star review is a FIVE star review from me!)

★★ A struggle, had some good points but not a book I’d recommend buying.

★ Disappointing, nuff’ said.

  1. I am trying to get my review blog up and running as well. but with having my personal blog, I dont know how i can just follow under my book blog lol! I did follow you, will you follow my book blog?

  2. New follower here. I stumbled across your blog through a Book blogs thread.Seeing as how your blog is still active,I decided to sign up(Many people up there don’t seem active don’t know why)

    I look forward to your future posts and hope i can get some great suggestions from your list of reviews.Hope i can see you back at either one of my blogs.

  3. Great blog Danielle, now following you. How do I send my new book for a review? My publisher doesn’t mind me soliciting reviews on my own!
    Thanks! 🙂
