Review Policy & Contact

Review Policy:

I’m currently accepting review requests.

If you want me to review your book, it being self-published or traditionally published, I would be happy to do so. I mostly read YA dystopian, paranormal, and urban fantasy. But I’m branching out to other genres within YA, NA, and Adult, such as fantasy, romance, and contemporary. If your book fits within these categories I’m willing to review it if the synapses sounds interesting to me. I do not review non-fiction, biographies or memoirs.

All my reviews are based on my honest opinion and if I’ve accepted a book for review, this will be stated at the beginning of the review. I will be cross-posting all reviews on Goodreads and I also promote posts via Twitter and my YouTube-channel.

If you want me to review your book, you can ask for a written non-spoiler review, a filmed non-spoiler review, or a combination of these two. Video reviews will be posted on my YouTube channel and will be linked to from this blog.

Important to know:

  • I own an e-reader but I prefer reading the physical book. (I live in the Netherlands so shipping might take a while, please keep this in mind as well)
  • If you want me to review your book, please sent me an email containing at least: the title, author, synapses, and link to either Goodreads or official page of the book.
  • I will try to post the review within a month of finishing the book.
  • I’m a fairly slow reader, so finishing the book will not be within a few days. (Unless the book is really good)

If you have any further questions, feel free to email me at
