Review Policy

  • I’m happy to accept books for review from publishers and authors. However, I will only take on Young Adult books.
  • It will usually take me one to two weeks to read and review a book, because y’know, I have a job and I need to eat. If I’m delayed in sticking to this time frame, I’ll let you know.
  • I rate all books out of five, and give recommendations for similar books, themes or authors. I will also try my best to keep all of my reviews free of spoilers unless otherwise stated. Because spoilers ain’t no fun.
  • I also share links for reviews on Goodreads and Twitter.

Email me at if you’d like to chat reviews.

Important stuff:

Accepting a book for review will not affect my honesty. My priority is to be true to myself and to my readers, so you’ll never find a piece of writing on Bookshelves & Biros that doesn’t reflect my true thoughts, even if I did get the book for free!

Bookshelves and Biros is an approved NetGalley reviewer.
