Review Policy

Welcome to An Average Life!

If you came here to request a review, please take a moment to read this policy before contacting me.


Books will be reviewed here on and promoted on Twitter via @anaveragelife88. Reviews will be copied to Amazon and Goodreads by request, I can also be found on NetGalley under my full legal name which I divulge during email exchange.
I endeavour to post reviews at the time of release or within one month of publication unless otherwise instructed. Please be sure to provide the proof within reasonable reading time. For reviews on published works an appropriate time frame will be agreed.
If I have not responded to your review request within 10 days please accept this as a polite decline.


My preferred choices are:

  • Dystopian
  • Thriller
  • Horror
  • SciFi
  • Crime
  • Fantasy

all within the YA, NA and Adult range.

I do not review:

  • Romance
  • Historical Fiction
  • Non-fiction

I will not accept any material containing detailed child abuse, this is my only content stipulation- please respect it.


I will accept eBook and paper format.
I do not review graphic novels or audiobooks.


Reviews will contain the following:

  • Cover art
  • Author, Title, Publisher, Page count, Release date
  • Synopsis
  • My thoughts
  • Rating/reaction

In the rare event I do not enjoy the material and decide not to finish reading I will contact you -the provider- to discuss how you wish to proceed. I offer private feedback in place of a review but will publicly announce my decision not to finish reading. (This has yet to occur)

All content on this blog belongs to Roxanne Michelle unless otherwise stated. Unauthorised use of this material without permission is strictly forbidden.

Information taken from outside sources will be credited. Synopsis and book cover images are taken from GoodReads unless otherwise stated.
