About and Review Policy

Hello everyone!

My name is Stephanie and I am a YA book blogger based in the UK. I’ve been blogging for a number of years now over at StephLikesBooks, however fell out of love with it during a period of depression. Luckily, I soon found my love for reading, reviewing and blogging again and I’d love to share my thoughts with everyone. I’m so happy to be back in the book blogging community!

I’m a huge fan of fantasy, sci-fi, and contemporary novels and regularly review these here on my blog.

My review system works as follows:

5 stars: I absolutely loved this book and recommend it to everyone and anyone.
4 stars: I really enjoyed this book and would recommend to people who enjoy the genre, there might be a few slight niggles.
3 stars: I enjoyed this book and might recommend it but there was parts of it that I didn’t really enjoy.
2 stars: I struggled with this book, there might have been one part that I liked, but overall it didn’t work me at all.
1 star: I struggled with this book and would not recommend, there were plenty of moments that I didn’t enjoy and I probably didn’t finish it.
DNF: I do DNF certain books when I feel like I’m forcing myself to read it, it’s a slog, and I’m just not enjoying it. I always try to give constructive criticism on how the book could be improved.

I do accept books (ebooks and physical books) for review and if you would like to send your book to me for this purpose, please contact me on: mybookthronehub@gmail.com thank you!

Please note:

I only review books in my preferred genres-

  • Fantasy
  • YA
  • NA
  • Contemporary
  • Sci-Fi
  • Retellings


I always mention if I received the book for free in exchange for an honest review, and this does not affect my thoughts or ratings in any way.

I sometimes have a lot of books to read for review and I do try to read every book sent to me within a timely manner, if there will be delays I will email you to let you know.
