Review Policy

It’s been a while since I posted something here. I honestly thought I’d keep blogging for a long time.

It is a difficult decision to make but I wanted to just let everyone know what and why.

And I’m in two minds about deleting this blog. While I want my reviews to remain, especially to promote those unknown, underrated books that I fell in love with I also don’t want to keep the blog in case people contact me for a review and get annoyed if ai can’t do it.

I do have a few valid reasons.

It takes up too much of my time. I’m studying now and working so I will not be able to review books foe the foreseeable future.

I while I did get books I want to read, I also kept getting random ones that weren’t my kind of books. Also I’m not good at saying no and would force myself to try and read them. This put me in a year long reading slump.

Third, it felt more like work than pleasure.

So the reason I’m keeping the blog and not deleting it.

I may, in the future, review books that I have purchased and read myself. If I find something absolutely riveting I would love to share it. Since I have very few people I know irl who actually read as much as I do I am keeping this part of my work alive to come back every once in a while. And in the off chance that I decide to get back to blogging regularly again( never say never) I wanted it to remain.

But I won’t be accepting review copies or requests. I’ve deleted my goodreads and netgalley as well to give myself some proper time.

Thank you to those who have followed my blog and become my friend here. And thank you, in advance, to those who choose to continue following me.

See you soon!
