Review Policy

I get all my books myself or from family/friends but on the occasion where I am given a book to review I will specify where/who I got it from. But all opinions will still be my own. I rarely accept review requests as I tend to buy books that I want and read them. But you can email me at meandink@outlook.com if you have any enquiries.

I read mostly fantasy and YA books but I do vary my reading. My favourite format is physical books but that isn’t exclusive.

I do not review every book that I read, just ones where I want to share my thoughts on. All thoughts shared are my own (unless specified otherwise e.g. a quote from someone else) and if I do not enjoy a book I will explain why and will say so as nicely as possible as I know this is my personal taste and don’t want to offend anyone who shares a different view.

I sometimes write additional reviews on my Goodreads profile which you can assess here: https://www.goodreads.com/meandink. And I use Twitter and Instagram so I talk about books on there too.

I include trigger warnings on most my reviews to inform potential readers about sensitive information.

This blog is for my own personal enjoyment and my views are my own. I will always be honest about how I feel when reviewing. And I choose to read books for my own enjoyment.

If you have any further questions you can message me using any social media or my email is at the bottom of this page.

Rating system:

5 Gold Stars: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ This is the top of the top. Books that get to the level mean I have had serious feels for them and I am utterly in love with the story. I will rarely give these out.  

4 Stars: ⭐ I had a few issues with the story but didn’t effect my overall enjoyment and I did connect with the story.

3 Stars: ⭐⭐⭐ I had issues and although I did enjoy it. I would have liked a few things things to have been changed to have connected with story. 

2 Stars: ⭐⭐ There was a few good things about the story but overall I didn’t enjoy it. I will have found the plot and/or characters and/or writing lacking. 

1 star: ⭐ Didn’t enjoy it at all and will have had issues with plot, characters and writing.

I do use 0.25, 0.5, 0.75 ratings as well to show a more specific idea of my thoughts.
