All books reviewed on Little Book Owl are personally bought by me, won in a giveaway, borrowed from the library/a friend, or received from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review.

I do not sell any ARC copies, however I may choose to include them in a giveaway for promotional purposes.

If you wish to contact me, then please fill out the form located here

Review Requests:


Although I am not currently accepting copies of books for review, I still have the corresponding information below for future reference if/when I decide to open up requests once more.

Authors and publishers, if you would like to have Little Book Owl consider your book for review, then please take a look at the following policy before contacting me.

I would like to alert you now, I am located in Australia, so please keep this in mind if you wish to send me a hard copy.

What to Expect:
My reviews are my complete and honest opinions. This obviously means that if I did not like a book, then a negative review is due. I do not, however, intend for my reviews to be harmful, therefore I always do my best to never insult or hurt an author and their work. If I feel that I cannot write a review in such a manner, I must hold the right to decline proceeding with publishing such review - I will of course contact you about this.

Please also take note, that I cannot 100% assure your that your book will be read and reviewed in accordance to a specific time frame. Due to personal life, I can get pretty busy, but keep in mind that I will do my best to get through every book I receive. If you do have a certain time in mind that you wish to have your book reviewed, then please alert me of this, and I will let you know if this is possible. I will contact whomever requested a review with a link directly to the review once it has been published.

I will take precedence over the books which I have received as ARC's, and have upcoming release dates. I aim to publish reviews within the month of publication.

I am more than happy to host an author for an interview, guest post or participate in blog tours. For queries, head over to the contact page to get in touch with me.

Preferred Genres:

  • Most YA literature
  • Dystopian
  • Paranormal
  • Fantasy
  • Romance
  • Adventure
  • Historical fiction
  • Science fiction

Currently Not Accepting:

  • Nonfiction
  • Religious 
  • Erotica
  • Poetry

ARC's and finished hard copies are preferred for review, however I do acknowledge that since I live in Australia this may be more difficult and I am not opposed to e-books.

I do own a kindle, so I accept .mobi or .pdf files.

I prefer reading series in order, so I ask that if you are requesting a book in a series that you include all of the preceding installments.
