A Bookish Dilemma


Hello, I’m Emma! I am a first year creative writing and publishing student and aspiring author. I’m an avid reader and have been for most of my life. Reading is such a passion for me and I love writing reviews in the hopes of sharing that love with others!

I’ve been reviewing books for a few months over on Goodreads and figured it’s time to organize my thoughts on a website!

Some of my favorite genres include YA, fantasy, sci-fi, contemporary and historical fiction!

Review Policy

I do accept ARC copies for review; to request this, email me at . I prefer to have a physical ARC, but if that isn’t possible, I do also accept digital or Kindle. I am also open to doing author interviews as well! However, I do reserve the right to refuse, though it is unlikely that I will do so.

I post all of my reviews both on this blog as well as Goodreads and Instagram, but for ARCs, I am also open to posting them on both Amazon and Barnes & Noble as well.

After receiving an ARC, I should have read and posted my review within two weeks of that time, but most likely less than that. I am unlikely to receive an ARC and not review it, as, if I feel I do not have the time, I will simply refuse.

Genres of books that I am most interested in reviewing include: YA, fantasy, sci-fi, contemporary, literary fiction and historical fiction, though I will accept genres other than this.

I will mostly refuse non-fiction and poetry books/collections, as it is not a main area of interest or expertise for me, though there are some exceptions.
