Review Policy

I am very happy to receive advance review copies of books to review on BookieMonster.

What do I read?

What a hard question to answer! I read a wide range of fiction and non-fiction. I am more in the literary fiction camp, however I like to read anything that’s well written. This includes books for adults, books for young adults and books for children. I really like books that are a little bit quirky or outside the mainstream. I REALLY like New Zealand books.

There are a few genres where I’m probably not the best person for the job. These would be Christian publishing, romance, self-help, spirituality and new age and sport. As with anything there are always exceptions to these but I am trying to be a little bit more precise so as to be helpful! :)

A few things to note:

I try to post my reviews as close to the release date as possible, please let me know if you require a specific date to post.

I am happy to review future and recent releases – I often post reviews of older books that I have in secondhand copies.

I’m happy to receive e-books, preferably in a Kindle-suitable file format.

I am happy to review self-published books if they are within my (admittedly vague) preferred genres.

I’m also happy to receive media releases, publicity material and if authors are available for email interviews that’s always good to know! If it’s something I think will interest my visitors I will post it.

And lastly, I always review books honestly, no matter the source.

And, truely lastly, here’s my contact details:
