Book Reviews

Here is a list of all the books that my sons and I have reviewed, split into books for children, young adults and adults, although some of them cross across.

If you wish us to consider reviewing a book for you, then you may contact me via Twitter or Facebook or use the contact form on my About page. I am not paid for any reviews. Please note if your review is of a children’s book and is time-critical that my boys already have quite a number of committed reviews still to be read, and homework takes precedence over reviews. I also have a backlog of books to review myself. I am also willing to consider proofreading jobs.

I am based in the UK. I am happy to review books (either printed or ebooks) of the following genres:-
Children’s (ideally for age 10+ boys, I am no longer reviewing picture books)
Young Adult (ideally for teenage boys)
Chick Lit
Historical Fiction

I have been selected as an ambassador for the LOLLIES Laugh Out Loud 2022 Book Awards and you may read my reviews of shortlisted titles here.
