I’m a London-based online bookbabe and regular attendee of all things bookish. I have recently began to chair and appear on panel events in central and greater London, and am happy to be approached with ideas.
I am very happy to receive books for review, particularly in the areas of:
- Young Adult Fiction and Non Fiction
- Children’s Fiction and Non Fiction: Middle Grade, Chapter Books & Picture Books
- Scifi & Fantasy
- Literary Fiction
- Contemporary Fiction
- Graphic novels
- Popular science and natural history/nature writing
- Gender and feminism
- History, particularly in relation to activism, women in various time periods, sex work and black rights.
- Dressmaking books
Please note, due to sensory issues related to autism I cannot review ebooks or books available solely online, and instead require physical copies of books.
Receiving a book does not guarantee a review, however be assured that if something I’m sent isn’t my particular cup of tea I will ensure it finds its way into the hands of someone who will appreciate it. I generally do not leave reviews for books I haven’t enjoyed, so on here you’ll only see reviews for things I am happy to recommend.
I will give an honest review based on my experience of the book. If you have a particular timeline that you would ideally like me to read and review by, please do let me know – I cannot guarantee that I can fulfil this but having the information on physical paper makes it more likely! I am a strong believer in the notion that there is a right time, mood, setting etc for a particular book, which may effect the timeline.
