Review Policy

If you would like me to review a particular book, feel free to contact me. I am more than happy to receive review copies from authors/agents/publishers. I accept ARCs, physical copies and e-books. I do prefer physical copies however. Reviews will be posted on this website, as well as on my Goodreads,  Twitter and Tumblr account with a combined total of 2100+ followers , and on retailer sites like Bol.com (Dutch online store.)

I promise that my reviews will be honest, fair, and professional.

You can send me a proposal via the contact form or contact me directly at esther5vogel@hotmail.com Please make sure to include the title and summary of your book as well as any social media links attached to the book.

Genres I generally accept for review are:

  • Young adult
  • Anything related to Politics (!!)
  • Fantasy
  • Graphic Novels & Comics
  • Literary Fiction
  • Historical Fiction
  • LGBTQ+
  • Paranormal
  • Dystopia
  • Mystery/Thriller/ Horror
  • Contemporary

If you would like to take a look at reviews I have done in the past I can refer you to my Goodreads account (please refer to the ‘reviewed’ shelf) or to this blog itself.


 I will not accept the following genres:

  • Erotica
  • Christian/Spirituality
  • Self-help

I reserve the right to decline any requests for any reason. If I accept a book for review, you can 100% expect a review coming up on my blog and all other social media accounts.

I try to read and review every book in a timely manner. Usually, you can expect a review to be uploaded 3 to 4 weeks after receiving the book, or if you have a preferred time frame coinciding with the release date please let me know.

Apart from reviews, I’m also interested in hosting giveaways, interviewing authors and guest posts.


My rating system: 

After I review your book, I will send you a direct link to my review on this blog and the links to all other platforms the review has been posted to.

My review usually includes: cover image, title, author, star rating (see below), release date, quotes, a synopsis, and things I liked and didn’t like in the story.

I will be discussing my personal experience reading this book, whether good or bad. Please be aware that I cannot guarantee a positive review. Negative reviews will be polite, and I will explain my reasons for not enjoying the book. I will be respectful and will not bash the author or their writing.

Ratings: 

I use a 1-5 stars rating system, also including half stars.
