One of my biggest wishes is that I could read for a living. However I have bills to pay and shoes to buy, and because of my book-buying habit I have two day-jobs alongside running Bookaholic Confessions (which is entirely a hobby, and I am in no way paid for anything that I publish on my blog.)
I am always open to offers to review books so please feel free to contact me via email firstname.lastname@example.org, on Twitter @BookaholicHolly or over on Facebook (Bookaholic Confessions) and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
I primarily review chick lit, romance, female fiction, crime, thrillers, contemporary fiction and young adult but please do get in touch if you would like me to consider a book for review. I accept requests directly from authors, from publishers and any PA companies. I will happily review self-published books too as I have discovered some fantastic authors in doing so since setting up my blog.
I think honesty is a very important part of review writing, so I will always give my honest opinions in reviews but never in an unpleasant way. I massively respect all of the hard work that authors put into their novels.
Please specify if you would like a review published on a particular date (publication date etc) and I will do my best to accommodate.
I will post around or as near to publication date as possible unless otherwise agreed. As well as posting a review on Bookaholic Confessions I will also post reviews on Amazon .com/.co.uk, GoodReads, and anywhere else if required.
I am also always happy to be added to any publisher mailing lists for review copies.
I am also a member of BookBridgr, Netgalley and I am part of the Lovereading UK review panel.
I am able to review paperbacks, hardbacks and any Kindle compatible ebooks (.mobi, Epub or PDF etc). My preference is for physical copies (paperback or hardback wherever possible).
I also host guest posts and conduct author interviews through the site and I’m always willing to spread the word about fabulous books and their authors in any way that I can, so please do get in touch if you would like to appear on my blog in any way, shape or form…
My Ratings (and what they mean…)
I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS BOOK. Expect lots of gushing, exclamation marks and excitement.
I LOVED THIS BOOK. Quite a lot. Still expect a fair amount of gushing and/or fangirling.
I really, really, REALLY enjoyed this book. Four hearts are high praise indeed, dont’cha know?
There were so many things right about this book. It was pretty great, in fact…
I really, really liked this book.
Hmm, ok but not my favourite-in-the-whole-world-ever.
This book wasn’t really for me.
