Review Policy

Please contact me (Renée Dacres) here if you want me to consider reviewing your novel whether you are an author or publisher.

For obvious reasons, I won’t like every book I read. So, please don’t send your novel to me unless you think I will enjoy it or are willing to cope with a bad review if I don’t.

At this time, I am unable to offer a fixed time frame for when I will publish my review of your book, but if I have told you that I will commit to writing one then it’s on the way!

Genres I prefer to review:

Urban Fantasy
Contemporary Young Adult

Genres I won’t review:


Formats I accept:

Print (ARC or final)
E-Book (E-PUB, as I have a Kindle)

Please note: I can only accept a very limited number of e-books/ARCs at any one time, simply because I believe that my review will be more in-depth if I’m in possession of a hard-copy. So, by accepting fewer e-books I’ll be able to give them the attention they deserve.

Rating System:

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐= EVERYONE should tell whoever they can about this book! It’s phenomenal and words cannot contain the feels.

⭐⭐⭐⭐= This book was great, but something wasn’t quite right. Would definitely recommend, but I had some reservations.

⭐⭐⭐= This book had too many problems for me to get through it comfortably. There were some parts that I enjoyed, but there’s no denying that it was a struggle at times.

⭐⭐= This one grated on me. There were enough problems with this book to stop me from enjoying almost any part of it. Not my cup of tea.

⭐ = I more than likely couldn’t make it through this one. There were very few things (if any) that I could find to like about this book.
