Review Policy

Review Policy for One Woman’s Brief Book Reviews


Firstly, thanks for your interest in requesting a review – it is such an honour for me that people are interested in my thoughts 🙂

The books I am happy to review are based on my personal reading preferences. I do love supporting Australian Authors in particular 🙂

I post all reviews on this blog, Facebook & Goodreads. I also highlight books I have really loved on Instagram. Please be aware that my reviews are quite short (that is the whole concept of my blog) and also honest; but if I don’t particularly like something, I will explain why. My reviews also contain no spoilers.

I am pretty open to most book genres however do mainly prefer the following:

*General fiction

*Contemporary fiction

*Women’s Fiction/Chick Lit

*Psychological Suspense/Mystery/Thrillers


*Historical Fiction


I do read the following genres, but not as often:


*Science Fiction



*Young Adult

I review in print form only; this is a personal preference for me.

Please note I am located in Western Australia when considering postage costs.

If I do accept your book for a review on my blog, please be patient for your review to appear.  I am a busy working mum of two young children and I have limited time to read. I try to read approximately 2-3 books a week on average. For this reason I may decline to read your book – please don’t be offended if this is the case.

If you would like me to consider your book for a review, please contact me via the ‘Contacts’ section on this site. I will try to get back to you as soon as possible.  A short synopsis of your book, the genre of the book, release date and contact details would be helpful and much appreciated if you are considering asking me to review your book.

Thank you for your interest,
