Review Policy

I am happy to accept ARCs and final copies of books for review. I guarantee that my reviews will be honest and always respectful. I no longer rate books on this blog, for several reasons, the most important being that I try to give a sense of why I don't like a book in my reviews, and those reasons might not apply to someone else. I know reviews are often skim-read and the rating is taken into high account by readers, and I would never want to turn someone away from a book they'd enjoy based on my personal rating alone.

I would also be pleased to host interviews, giveaways and other events. For examples of past events I have held, please see 'Exclusives'.

Format: Although I much prefer to read hard copies (and I find them easier to flick through to find parts I liked when I’m reviewing) I understand that since I am based mainly in the UK and Turkey, PDFs may be more convenient. I do however have a US address and will be able to receive books a few weeks after they arrive there, if this is more convenient. I do not read self-published books.
Genres: I mainly read and review YA literature, and the areas I enjoy include anything paranormal, gritty/funny coming of age stories, dystopian, and science fiction when it relates to genetics. I also enjoy popular science books featuring genetics and bioethics. If you would like to get a better sense of what books I have recently enjoyed, please feel free to look at posts detailing my favorite books read in 2010.

Other: If you would like to contact me about reviewing a book, please include the following information:

·      When you would like me to post the review
·      If you are happy for me to use the book in a giveaway

Please email all inquiries to laleonlit@gmail.com

Disclosure: I do not accept monetary compensation for reviews.
