Review Policy

Hi authors/publishers!

If you have stumbled upon my little corner on the internet, and decided you'd like to have your book reviewed by me on MyBookishThrills, here is some information for you regarding what it is I will accept/read and review! :)

First of all I would like to state that I'd consider myself quite an open-minded reader, and will read most genres, as long as the story sounds like something that will interest me. However, my preferred/most-read genres are: fiction, young adult, history fiction, fantasy (including high fantasy), contemporary, thriller, mystery, romance, chick lit.

Genres I have least interest in, and will not review: non-fiction, a book in a series that is not the first, memoirs/biographies.

Traditionally published books are prioritized, however if you are self-published/indie author, don't hesitate to put in a request and if the plot interests me, I will most definitely accept to review your work!

As I am quite fond of traditional reading, hard-copies (hardcover, paperback) are also prioritized and much preferred, however, I'm not saying a definite no to e-copies, and I will accept them on some occasions.

Your book will be reviewed in the same format as every book review that you will find on my blog. I give the book a rating out of 5 stars, and then a written review of the book, including my honest opinions, feelings and recommendations. The following is the rating system I use when allocating star rating:

★★★★★: it made scream/cry/laugh/jump around with joy, and i'm in mourning because i finished it. 
★★★★: good, VERY good, i enjoyed it a lot.
★★★: it was good, with a lot potential.
★★: not my cup of tea, but some parts i enjoyed.
★: really not my cup of tea.

If you'd like me to review your book, please email me at:, or any other contact format found on my 'Contact' page, and include synopsis, genre, page count and release date of the book.

Please note that I will only be accepting books for review that truly and honestly interest me, and if I accept your book for review, a review will be posted on my blog, Goodreads and Book Depository accounts within 3-4 weeks.

Thank you!
