Book Review Policy

The books reviewed on Reading Upside Down come from a variety of sources including personal purchases, my local library and books received as advance review copies from publishers. The opinions expressed in the reviews are entirely my own and are not influenced in any way by the source of the books.

I have eclectic reading tastes and regularly read a variety of genres, including both fiction and non-fiction and picture books through to adult fiction. I do not generally read thrillers, true crime, novels with supernatural themes (including vampire fiction), horror or science fiction and will rarely consider writing reviews for books in these genres. I am particularly keen to review and promote Australian authors.
