Review Policy

Thank you so much for visiting my blog. With 3 years of reviewing books solely for my pleasure and entertainment, I recently started to get constant book review requests which led me to setting up my personal review policies.

I would very much love to accept all requests and wish I had all the time in the world, but as a full-time office worker and being a slow reader, I can only read in my spare time. For that reason, I only accept books that interest me and make me want to read.
Please contact me through the CONTACT page before submitting your review requests and let me know a little bit about the book preferably attach a book description or a link to the book.

If you have any specific time line as to when you would like to have my review, I would appreciate it if you could let me know that as well upon contacting me.
I will try my hardest to accommodate my schedule to realize your preferred timeline, but as I’ve been booked for other book blog tours, please bear in mind that I might not be able to do so depending on circumstances.

If the book interests me and we both are happy with the time frame, I will contact you back with a request for an e-copy. As I mostly read on my Kindle, I prefer a mobi copy (on top of that, I assume International shipping to Japan would be exorbitant).
I’m a NetGalley member so NetGalley widget works for me as well.

The genres I read:

Contemporary Fiction
Women’s Fiction
Thrillers (including Psychological thrillers)
Police Procedurals
Cozy Mystery
Historical Fiction

*I don’t read Science Fiction or Fantasy as much, but once again, it’s up to the synopsis, so just give me some descriptions about the book and I might accept your request)

The Genres I don’t read:


Non-fiction (autobiography, memoirs and any other kinds)

*These are definite no-nos at this point I’m afraid.
*Please note that I am a 100% fiction reader. I don’t gravitate toward non-fiction most of the time.

The places where I share my reviews:

Amazon Japan
(if a book is provided through NetGalley widget)
On my blog

*I share the links to my review and my reading progress through Goodreads on Twitter (@Norin_76/@DiaryFiend) as well.

I maintain my honest, fair, and unbiased thoughts and opinions on my reviews in any circumstances, so keep in mind that I cannot always guarantee positive reviews.

These are my review policies. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me through my Contact page.

Thank you for reading and I appreciate your understanding and support.
