Review Policy

My rating system is highly subjective because I read and review books for fun! Generally, it goes:

  • 5 stars – I loved it!
  • 4 stars – I really enjoyed it, there’s just something holding it back for me
  • 3 stars – It was okay! I don’t regret spending my time and/or money on it
  • 2 stars – Overall I wasn’t a fan of it
  • 1 star – It was bad and I do not recommend it at all

If I want to give a rating that includes a half star I usually round up, and I don’t give 1 star ratings to books I DNF’d without an exceptionally good reason.

When I mention a book on this blog, I always link to its Goodreads page through the picture of its cover. At the end of reviews I include that book’s author’s bio and picture, and if I would at all recommend the book to others I also include links to where the book can be purchased in the UK.

If you want me to review your book:

I’m very sorry, but I’m currently closed to review requests.

If you have any questions, please email me at eleanor.astralbooks@gmail.com or DM me on Twitter, and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can!
