Who Drives Booklover Book Reviews?

BLBR logo emailHi! I’m Jo, and I’m an unabashed book lover living in Brisbane, Australia. Since starting this website in 2009 I’ve come to realise I enjoy writing about books almost as much as reading them, and Booklover Book Reviews has become a much valued creative outlet for me.

Review Requests

I enjoy a range of genre, which is ever expanding, but my favourites are:

Literature, Mystery, Adventure, Crime-Detective, Thriller, Humour, Contemporary Women’s Lit, Drama, Romance, selected Science-Fiction, Dystopian.

As much as I would love to be able to accept all the review requests I receive, I have a full time job so must keep my ‘reviews waiting’ list to a manageable level.

In this website’s infancy I responded to all personalised review offers received via bookwordlover@gmail.com, but as Booklover Book Reviews has grown so too have the numbers of review requests, to a point where as much as I’d like to, I simply do not have the time to respond to all emails. However I assure you that all emails/offers are considered according to whether the book synopsis is a good fit for my reading mood at the time and how many other review commitments remain outstanding.

Whether or not I’m able to review your title, please feel free to add it to the ‘Books Seeking Reviewers’ List at my Booklover Hub at any time.


I have found a great way of promoting a review or interview is to hold a giveaway of the book at the same time. I am willing to host such giveaways if authors/publishers are willing to supply and post  prize copies (preferably internationally).

I promote my giveaways on Twitter, Google+, Facebook and Book Blog forums, along with listings on competition sites such as Online-Sweepstakes, ContestChest, Win-Free-Stuff etc.
