Review Policy/Work with Me!

I am happy to consider all review requests in the middle grade and young adult age groups, and am also interested in adult contemporary/romance and mystery/thriller. I am happy to consider self published novels too, although I may not enter into conversations if I do not wish to review due to a previous negative experience.

I am unable to accept ebook requests for several reasons and will only accept physical copies of 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, romance and contemporary.

I am also happy to consider adult requests in romance/contemporary.

I am quite picky with sci-fi, dystopia and horror, and rarely read them. Therefore I am unlikely to accept requests in those genres, unless I’m already familiar with the author or there is some aspect that fits my preferences.

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).

Additionally, you should note that apart from special requests e.g. as part of blog tours, I review all books as part of grouped posts, which often have fun themes!

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. And I figure I might as well also add in that I would LOVE to be part of more cover reveals, so I’m also very open to requests for this!!

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 💜
