Review Policy & Rating System

For Books

I am accepting books in exchange of an honest and fair review. It can be ARC’s (Advanced Reader’s Copy) or published novels in any format, eBooks or physical books. If the book is part of a series that I’ve not read yet, I would appreciate if you would send me the other books as well. Please take note that I am living here in Germany so if you’re planning to send a physical copy, you need to send me an email first so I can provide my mailing information, if needed.

I read Young Adult, Adult, New Adult, Middle Grade, Contemporary, Realistic Fiction, Non-Fiction, Graphic Novel, Crime, Horror/Thriller, Mystery, Suspence and Self-help. I’m also willing to explore other genres. If in case I don’t like the book or to continue reading it, I would still give a review and my reasons but I’ll make sure that it will not affect or influence the others because we have different opinions.

For Bookish Merch / Non-Bookish Related Product

If you are an business owner/seller (both small and huge) and you want your products to be featured here in my blog and my Instagram (or other social media accounts), feel free contact me via email. I’m accepting bookish merchandises and also non-bookish related stuff (depending on the product itself).

My reviews are 100% fair and based on my honest opinions.

Aside from this blog, the reviews will also be posted on my other accounts such as Goodreads and Twitter. I have an Instagram account where I also post a picture of the book I’ve reviewed just to let my followers know that it’s already on my blog.

If you have any other questions or inquiries, feel free to send me an email at kathlau.reads@gmail.com

It’s a perfect book for me. An epic read. Got my attention from the beginning (including maybe the book cover) until the very end. Instantly added on my favorite and re-read list.

Enjoyable, interesting and amazing story. Some were added on my favorite list.

Some parts were enjoyable and some were okay.


I was able to finish it so it’s okay.


As much as possible, I don’t like giving 1 star but if I have to then I will.
I still finished reading it because it’s still counted as books read.

  1. Hi, Kath!

    My name is Jackie. I have currently have four books out. Three are part of my ghost story series, Cemetery Tours, and the fourth is a YA novel called Boy Band. Its sequel will be released December 8. I was wondering if you might be interested in reading/reviewing one or two (or all, if you like). No pressure. I would be happy to gift you the eBooks on either Nook or Kindle. Thank you so much!
