Review Policy/Contact Info

I am happy to consider all review requests in the middle grade and young adult age groups, except for self published novels, unless I am already in contact with an author or their freelance publicist.

I am unable to accept ebook requests for several reasons and will only accept physical copies, a book to review if it sounds like something I will be interested in.

My favourite genres within the age categories I review include mystery/adventure, historical/timeslip, fantasy, magical realism and contemporary.

I am very picky with sci-fi, dystopia and horror, and rarely read them, and therefore am unlikely to accept requests in those genres.

I will provide an honest review of my opinions about the book, but I will not review the book if I really didn’t enjoy it as I prefer my blog to focus more on the positives of books than the negatives, and would contact you to let you know this. Only 3 stars and above reviews appear on this blog.

I also cannot guarantee a time frame of when I will read and review the book, unless you have a specific time frame in mind (which I will let you know if I am able to achieve when you get in touch). Reviews may, however, take longer than this at certain times for various reasons.

Additionally, you should note that apart from special requests e.g. as part of blog tours, I review all books I read in one monthly post with all books I read the previous month.

Please don’t get in touch unless you are happy with this policy. If this policy has clearly not been read I will not enter into correspondence with you.

I am also happy to consider requests to be part of blog tours/for author interviews as I personally enjoy reading that type of post and would absolutely love to host them here at Golden Books Girl.

If you would like to ask me to review a book/take part in a blog tour or have any other requests please email me at and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Amy ❤
