Review Policy

I'm not taking on review books at the moment unless from authors who already feature on my blog. This is to provide consistency whilst allowing me to work on my backlog. If I've previously reviewed your book/s, I can be contacted via my personal email or through Twitter (@Barnsey_68).

I read mainly using a kindle, so please could you ensure a kindle version (.mobi file) is available, or alternatively a paperback/print copy, before submitting a request. Thank you.

I'm happy to consider review requests in the following genres:

  • Horror
  • Action & Adventure
  • Crime & Mystery
  • Thriller
  • Science Fiction 

I've always been a big fan of Horror and more recently Psychological Thrillers. Requests in these two categories are particularly welcome.

I don't accept Young Adult books unless from authors I've previously reviewed. Please also note that I have no interest in Erotica, Historical Romance or Poetry.

In addition to Barnsey's Books, my reviews are published on:

  • Amazon (UK)
  • Amazon (US)
  • Barnes & Noble (US)
  • Bookbridgr
  • Goodreads
  • Twitter
  • Waterstones (UK) 

I publish privately to my timeline and in various book groups on Facebook. I save public 'pins' of all the books I've reviewed on Pinterest. These link back to my blog.

I'm happy to consider review requests from publishers, publicists and authors - including self-published authors.

I don't share books with any third parties and I won't reveal plot twists. All reviews are my own opinion and given freely without payment. 

Because reading and reviewing is my passion rather than a full-time job, I'm unable to guarantee review dates unless specified for my consideration at the time of request.

Please be aware that acceptance of a book does not guarantee a review. I will only post reviews of books I have finished and can write constructively about. Sometimes it can be impossible to reach the end of a book I haven't 'connected' with; in which case a review won't be posted.   

If you don't hear back from me within a week, please assume I'm unable to offer you a review. It would be impossible to accept every request due mainly to time constraints or considering myself unsuitable for your content. 

Please be assured each and every request is carefully considered and I appreciate the time taken to contact me here.
