Review Policy

Sorry, but at the moment I'm closed for review requests while I work on my backlog.

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 only post reviews of books I have finished and can write constructively about. Sometimes it can be impossible to finish 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. 

Thank you for your interest.
