My Review/privacy policy


***August 2021 ***

Please note I am not taking on any new books to review at the moment, as I have loads of my own books I want to concentrate on. I am branching out though, and hoping to review more ‘bookish’ products, so if you think you have a product that would fit this criteria please feel free to contact me. Products I have reviewed can be found at ‘Bookish’ products reviews

My review policy

If  I don’t get back in touch within a week I’m sorry but I am either to busy (I work full time) or your book is unfortunately not one that I would read or review.

I am very happy to review books on request from authors and publishers in exchange for an honest review. I cannot guarantee a timeframe unless we discuss and agree a particular date for a post, please note this blog is my passion but not a job (unfortunately), and so I have to fit in reading and reviewing around a full time job.

My preference is for crime thrillers, psychological thrillers, police procedurals etc so please do not be offended if I turn down other genres. Book formats I accept are paperback, hardback and kindle (.mobi) files. I do not accept PDF or word files I’m afraid.

I  will always be open and honest with my reviews, and reviews will be posted to Amazon UK and my Twitter page @reviewcafe, my Facebook page the book review cafe, Goodreads and here on my blog, I also post to numerous book groups I belong to on Facebook. 

Acceptance of a book does not guarantee a review. Please be aware that I only post on my blog, reviews of books that I have enjoyed and would recommend – I don’t post negative reviews nor do I review books that I have been unable to finish.

All my reviews are my own opinions and I do not ask for, nor receive, payment for any review. (A note to authors – you should NEVER have to pay a bookblogger for a review – there are a few that will ask you for a review fee but my advice would be to find someone else – most bookbloggers review for FREE for the #booklove).

If you would like me to review a book on this blog, then please use my contact form, at the top of my main blog page, and include the following details:
Title and Author of book
Publisher (or self published if applicable)
Publication Date (and time-frame when posting a review would be acceptable)

I’m happy to do guests posts, interviews and giveaways as well as book tours and cover reveals, so feel free to contact me if you would like me to promote you and your book on my blog.  Many thanks for popping by the book review cafe

I do not ask for, nor receive, payment for any review. Although my reviews may contain links to Amazon, this is purely for ease of reference. I have no affiliation with, and receive no payment from Amazon, or any other company whose links I may include.

Quoting my reviews

I am 100% happy for authors/publishers to reproduce parts of my reviews in books, on websites or as part of wider publicity, but please could these be attributed to me and to The Book Review Cafe
