Hi there! My name is Belle, and I have an addiction to most things involving the written word. This blog is where you’ll find my thoughts on what I’m reading, as well as other book-related things that catch my eye. 

I am currently accepting a limited number of books for review. I both digital (mobi or ebook only) and physical review copies from all sources (yes, this includes self-published authors!). Physical copies are my preference, but as I live in Australia, I understand that this is not always a possibility.

Reviews will be posted no earlier than 1 week before their release date, or as soon as there is a free place in my review schedule. If you have other requirements around review dates, please let me know and I’ll do my best to accommodate.

Reviews are published on my blog, as well as Goodreads, and all reviews automatically link through to my twitter. Other sites are possible upon request.

If I do not finish a book, I will not be posting a review. Generally anything I rate 1-2 stars on Goodreads will also not get a review unless I feel very strongly about it. This is not because I only want to publish “good” reviews, but because if I rated your book that low, I don’t want to spend any more time on it. That may seem harsh, but like many people, I have limited time around other commitments and must use it as best I can. Respectful emails from authors/publishers about why I rated a book 1-2 stars will be responded to.

I also publish guest posts, participate in book tours and accept unpublished novels for beta/proofreading. Please feel free to contact me at belle@thereareinkspotsonmypage.com or fill out this form any time to discuss further. You can also find me on Goodreads and twitter.

My preferred genres are:

  • Fantasy
  • Historical fiction
  • Young adult (primarily fantasy, but sometimes contemporary)

Occasionally I will read:

  • Mystery/Thrillers
  • Sci-fi
  • Action/adventure

I am unlikely to read:

  • Romance
  • Sports
  • New Adult
  • Drama
  • Non-fiction
