Review Policy (SEE NOTICE ABOVE) 

is not applicable at the moment

 I would be very happy to review any book from my Goodreads wishlist , but I'm open to suggestions for similar books.

I accept ebooks in mobi format for my kindle. If you really want to send me a physical copy, please be aware that I am currently in Portugal and the postage costs to you will be higher than in US, Canada or UK. I am also interested in audiobooks, but before I accept one for review I need to make sure I like the narrator, so a sample will be a must.

 Genres I read (both in YA/NA and adult fiction):

urban fantasy (light like Darynda Jones and dark like Ilona Andrews, Lilith Saintcrow, J.A.Saare, Lyn Benedict, Dakota Banks, Seanan McGuire, etc.)
mix of urban fantasy with paranormal romance (example: D.B.Reynolds, Lynn Viehl, Karen Marie Moning). Unfortunately straight paranormal romance is not to my taste and I'm more likely to refuse your request than give you a negative review.
historical paranormal fiction/new Gothic novels/historical fiction (Emma Cornwall, Michelle Deiner, Anne Cleeland, Carol Anne Reeves)
steampunk (Karina Cooper, Bec McMaster, Pip Ballantine & Tee Morris, Steven Harper, Melanie Karsak, Meljean Brook)
post-apocalyptic fiction and dystopians (Mira Grant, Teri Terry, Susan Ee, Julie Kagawa)
sci-fi and dark fantasy ( Meilin Miranda, Jaqueline Carey, G.J.Koch, Heidi Ruby Miller, Sara King, Andrea K. Host, Rachel Bach, Anne Bishop and Jean Johnson).
conspiracy thrillers/time travel/spies and assassins/murder mystery  (John Twelve Hawks, Max Barry, Diana Gabaldon, April White, Ally Carter, Sarah J. Maas)
contemporary romance (Penny Reid, Lucy Robinson, Graeme Simsion)
erotica (mostly BDSM erotica like Tiffany Reisz, Roni Loren or CD Reiss)

Please don't send me poems, novellas, novelettes, short stories, anthologies, anything about cowboys and highlanders. I also don't read middle grade novels and can't stomach dark romance.

I am very picky with Christian fiction, not averse to it, but so far I've liked only couple of authors. I like noir, mixed genres, black humor, different settings in novels - especially Eastern European and Asian.

Sending a review request

 Please include:
- synopsis and good resolution cover;
- link to Goodreads and/or Amazon UK;
- release date if it's not out yet;
- genre;
- 1-2 chapters of the story if it's not available as a sample on Amazon UK yet;
- DO NOT send me your whole book before I accept your request, please.

If you glanced at my blog you would have noticed that I rarely do negative reviews unless it's an author I've known and read for a long time and feel somewhat disappointed otherwise I DNF (do not finish)  books I don't like.

So, chances are, if I DNF your book I'll mention this on my Sunday post and won't rate it on Goodreads apart from a couple of sentences explaining why I DNFed it. I'll assume you agree with this condition when you send me your request.

I will only accept few requests on a first come first served basis each month as I still have to read books I buy as well ;)

If you haven't heard from me within two weeks please assume that regrettably your book wasn't considered for a review at the time.

The waiting time for review is usually around 2 months.

At last, I'm an equal opportunity reviewer and accept self-published authors just the same as the rest of the authors.

What I promise if I read and review your book:
- I will post the review on my blog, Goodreads and Amazon UK/US.
- I will also tweet about it and Facebook it. 

Thank you!

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
