Whats Happening?
I will still be reading and will continue to add my reviews to Amazon US, Amazon UK and Goodreads. It is my intention to continue to add my reviews to my blog, though how popular my blog will be without giveaways and promotional posts, I don't really know yet. Dependent on the issues listed below I may join in a few Blog Tours but not on the scale I was doing before.

The reasons why I am doing this. . . .
My dad died in December 2018 so I am back to caring solely for my mum whose health seems to be deteriorating along with her mood swings she is becoming increasingly more demanding and more difficult to look after than ever before.
I am also continuing to trying to help my daughter get her Nail technician business busier. Annnd then there's the list of my daughters and my own health issues, EDS(thought to be type 3), Menieres Disease, Osteoarthritis, Fibromyalgia, IBS, Migraines and  Rhinitis, Allergies etc etc.

It is my hope to continue reading (as relaxation and escapism "me" time). My reading, reviewing, blogging time were drastically cut down before. I am now trying to increase my reading, reviewing and adding my reviews to my blog. 

I am unsure whether I will be able to begin the Promotional Posts and Blog Tours again, for the moment I am concentrating on the reading and reviewing!
I feel I can still no longer 100% commit to specific timescales as I never know when a health issue, either my own, my daughters, or mum's and I hate promising to do something and then not being able to follow through with the commitment. 

Still want to get in touch to request me to read and review your book?

via email

via Goodreads
So you still want me to read and review your book?
First of all, thank you for still being interested me  solely as a reader-reviewer, please take a minute to read my review policy below.....


  • YA
  • Paranormal
  • Sci-Fi (Not Star Trek/Star Wars)
  • Fantasy
  • Dystopian/Post Apocalyptic
  • Paranormal Romance (including mildly steamy- will be post with a warning for young people).
  • Urban Fantasy
  • Zombie (like Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan or Generation Dead by Daniel Waters )
Even though the genre of your book may be listed above it is not a "set in stone guarantee that I will read it". I mean lets be honest here, not every book "grabs" you even if it is in a genre you usually read. If your genre is not listed above please ask me to take a look at your book, but please do not be offended if I say no, I would rather be honest about what I will and will not read. Also just because I may not read and review your book, it doesn't mean we can't do a promotional spotlight (my followers may still like your books) and of course we could also do an Author Interview, Cover Reveal, Guest Post or Excerpt.

  • Religious books
  • Graphic Novels/Comic type
  • Anime or Manga
  • Middle Grade
  • Erotica
  • ARC'S / Galleys
  • eBooks (mobi or pdf or prc)
  • Bound books, ie paperbacks, hardbacks. 
  • Smashwords Coupons
  • Amazon Gifted Books

  • Amazon UK & Amazon US 
  • Amazon CA (if requested to)
  • Barnes & Noble (if requested)
  • Goodreads
  • Netgalley (where applicable)
  • Edelweiss (where applicable)
  • Smashwords (if applicable)
  • On my blog of course!
If there is somewhere else you wish me to place the review, please request this and I will happily try my best to oblige.

  • If you have sent me an e-mail to request a review and I don't answer, it is not because I don't want to read and review your book. It could be that I am ill or "busy with other commitments"
  • I read as much and as fast as I can. If you need a special date just let me know and we can try to arrange it, though I admit I am trying to be more relaxed in scheduling my reading due to my health & family issues.
  • I cannot guarantee that I will write a review within a set time limit or even at all. I do occasionally have a "Did Not Finish", when that happens I do still review what I read and explain the parts I did like as well as the explore the reasons why I couldn't finish the book. As yet being unable to write a review for a book I have read or classed as a DNF has never happened, but I need to add this point just in case it ever does occur.
  • By far the best way to contact me is via email 
  • Or via Goodreads my name/profile is Sandra "Jeanz" Richardson 

As always if you have any questions the best way to get in touch with me is via email and that email address is

Finally thanks for dropping by!
