Review Policy

Thanks for clicking here! This is all my preferences regarding review copies of books, and how I go about reviewing them, along with my personal policy relating to them.

I try my hardest to review every book I am sent, but sometimes this just isn’t possible. 99% of the time I will give a review. I rate every book I read on Goodreads, and will add a small review there if a larger, more detailed review isn’t possible.

Genres I like: Anything apart from erotica, thrillers, hardcore horror and children’s fiction. I prefer YA, contemporary, fantasy, feminist nonfiction or fiction and science fiction novels.

Series: I prefer to read a series in sequence, but am happy to read a book out of sequence if need be. In the latter situations, a review may not be possible, unless I have previous knowledge of the storyline and characters.

I review in either ebook or hard copy format, but I prefer to receive and review books as a hard copy

I am a member of NetGalley, and will occasionally post reviews on here from books I read through their service. However, again, a review is not always possible, but I always provide a star rating through the site. 

If you would like me to review your novel, then include the words ‘EllieCeeJay Book Review’ in the subject of your email. I may not respond, but I will endeavour to check every email I receive which has this subject.

Due to an inundation of real-life work, I am currently not responding to review requests. I will update this page here when I will be doing so again.

Interested in offering me a book to review? Thank you! Please email me at and I will get back to you as soon as I can!
