Review Policy

General Information

I accept Adult and Young Adult print ARCs and published physical copies for review. I no longer accept e-books. I am happy to review indie press and self-published books. I currently require up to 6 weeks after receiving a book before posting a review on my blog. Please note for shipping purposes that I live in the United Kingdom.

Please send all enquiries to mail@ashleyinwonderland.co.uk.

Important: My reviews are not free promotion. If you want me to review your book please keep in mind that I will be reviewing based on my own personal experience, for better or for worse. My reviews are shared on my blog, Twitter, Goodreads, and Amazon regardless of the rating I give them. This is a hobby blog run by someone who loves books and loves to share her experience reading them. Reviews are done free of charge in my spare time because I want to share my passion with other readers and bloggers. 

Genres

I accept Adult and Young Adult fiction in the following genres:

  • Horror/Gothic
  • Historical fiction
  • Science fiction
  • Fantasy
  • Short story compilations if it falls in any of the above genres

I do not accept the following:

  • Non-fiction
  • Short story compilations outside of the above genres
  • Erotica
  • Gore/extreme violence/rape
  • Political commentary
  • Overtly religious books
  • Pure Biographies/autobiographies
  • Middle grade/children’s lit

Reviews

Once I have finished reading your book I will write a review on my blog and share it on Goodreads and Twitter.

My review will not be a literary critique but instead a casual discussion about my experience reading your book and what I liked and disliked. I will be honest with my review but I will never write a snarky or sarcastic critique or a personal attack on the author. If I did not like the book I will write a constructive critique explaining myself thoroughly. I aim to write fair and honest reviews that accurately reflect my personal journey reading your book.

Review Structure

Each review that I post will include the following:

  • Your book’s cover art
  • General information (title, author, publisher, page count, release date)
  • A link to your social media/website
  • My review (spoiler free)
  • A star rating

Author Interviews

At this time I am happy to host authors on my blog! If you are an author (including self-published) please feel free to get in contact with me via email to discuss an author interview. As with my reviews, I will share a link to the interview via my Twitter account.
