About Me & Review Policy

About Me


My name is Dee-Cee and I am totally addicted to books. There is rarely a day goes by when I’ve not read at least a couple of chapters from a book.

I’ve always had a passion for reading but it intensified back in 2014 when I lost my youngest daughter Lucie to a brain tumour. I found reading really helped with grief and took me into someone else’s world for a little while and has totally helped to keep me sane 😉

I started blogging initially for myself, to keep track of what I was reading and what I thought about the book but soon realised how important reviews are to authors and how I wanted to tell everyone about the brilliant books I was reading without constantly boring my non reading friends.


Review Policy

I am more than happy to read and review books from authors, publicists and publishers, so please feel free to contact me at deeceetaylor@gmail.com or on twitter @DeeCee334

I cannot guarantee I will read your book especially if it is not if my preferred genre as listed below.

My preferred genres are :

  • Crime
  • Thrillers
  • Police Procedural
  • Mystery
  • Suspense
  • Psychological thrillers

But I also like to mix it up a bit (especially when I start to dream about murders and torture) by reading :

  • Chick Lit
  • Women’s Fiction 
  • Historical Fiction

I accept books to review in the following format:

  • EBook
  • Mobi
  • Kindle
  • Paperback
  • Hardback

If I agree to read and review your book I will try to give you an accurate time frame of which I think will be achievable or if it is an arc I would like at least 2 weeks to receive and read the book before publication date. Once my review is written up I will send you an email with links to where you can read it. If for some reason I do not like your book or am unable to finish I will not write a review and will contact you to let you know why. 

I do not get paid for doing book reviews and it is very much a hobby which I love doing.
