About Me

photoMy name is Lucy-May, I’m 25 & live in the South East of England. My life revolves around my darling Alaskan Malamute (not a husky) called Elsa & I spend my time watching Doctor Who, reading, colouring, attempting puzzles, studying & most importantly, sleeping. I have an ‘invisible’ disability & live with chronic pain.

I have a degree in Psychology & I’m currently studying for a MA in Advanced Child Protection – I have just started working on my dissertation which will focus on how culture impacts the way different countries view and address child protection concerns.

Now that I’m studying once more my blog may take a bit of a backseat in my priorities, but when I have the time I will still be posting & writing reviews. How much I’m posting will also be largely affected by my mental & physical health, so please stick around even if I stop posting for a short time.

If you’re not an author or publisher then this is where my story ends for you;
I hope you stick around by hitting the follow button, but either way thanks for reading.


Review Policy

I am not currently accepting review requests from new contacts as I am unwell.

I read a lot because it’s important to me, & I write reviews because I want to help other people find books that can become important to them as well; I especially love to learn from the books I read & reading has definitely made me a better person. I read fantasy, science-fiction & historical fiction/fantasy, in middle grade, young adult & adult age groupings – I very rarely pick up romance books but I’ve read a couple. Reading is an escape for me – I need stories, because without them I cannot cope with the real world – this means that I want every book I pick up to be the best it can be so I’m always happy to give feedback or constructive criticism to authors/publishers. I love being asked to review diverse books & would be honoured to do proofreading or sensitivity reading for books about disability. All of this does depend on my health and how busy I am with my studies so please be patient with me.

I don’t accept everything I’m asked to review, it’s simply a time thing so please don’t be offended if I don’t get back to you or choose not to review your book. If a reviewer turns you down, abusive or repetitive emails or comments are not the answer! Additionally, it can take me months to get round to a book I’ve been sent, depending on the release date & whether I’ve committed to a specific time limit, so please be patient – again, abusive or repetitive emails or comments are not the answer & I will block anyone who hassles me this way.

If you would like to contact me about reviewing, proof reading or beta reading your book, please email me at:

I aim to reply to review requests within a couple of days but this depends on my health & university commitments. Thank you for reading, I hope to hear from you soon,
