Review Policies

While I’d love to read every book that is requested of me, it’s not possible. If I accept your request I will do my best to get your review out in the time stated. With that being said please keep in mind that I do not charge for my reviews, I am a full time mother with a family that requires my time and sometimes I am unable to read within the time agreed. If this happens please know that I am really sorry but I will aim to get your review out as quickly as possible.

Shona reads romance, paranormal, contemporary, dystopian, crime, courtroom drama, urban fantasy and women's fiction, through YA, NA and Adult ranges.

If you are an independent author with a book that doesn’t fall into any of the above genres please email us and we will consider reviewing it.

Where possible reviews will be posted to the blog, my Goodreads and Amazon accounts.

If your book is part of a series, please make sure to contact us to see if we have read the other books first. If it is the second book in the series, we will consider reviewing it as long as both books are sent.

Please keep in mind that you are asking for an honest review and as such we cannot guarantee that it will be a positive (3+ stars) review.

Any print copies that are sent are to be considered gifts..

I am also happy to feature author spotlights, and guest posts. If you would be interested then email me at BookyRamblings@gmail.com with spotlight/guest post in the subject line


  1. Waiting on my 1st book back from the editor in a couple of weeks or so. Love your site, how do i submit a book if it is not yet out. Hoping to self publish Dec/Jan.

    Not your typical author, Dyslexic, got an 'e' in english. I had a weird dream or 6 or 7 the same night. wrote down about 50 bullet points and then picked it up in Jan and made a new year resolution like we all do. 123,000 words later here we are.

    TW Your the first I have contacted, liked your twitter profile and your website even more.

    Good luck girls.


    1. Hi Trev, if you'd like one of us to read for you, you can email us on bookyramblings@gmail.com for consideration. If you'd rather wait until publication that's fine, however in the past authors have sent electronic copies direct to email or kindle.
      We do all have rather heavy reading schedules at the minute, but assuming someone has space to read for you we can discuss your options via email.


We love to hear what you think about our posts. Don't be shy, say hi.
