Review Policy

Wicked Words is a UK based book and writing blog staffed by one avid reader (me) with diverse tastes, but will be concentrating on books aimed at children and young adults.

Grimm's Fairy Tales

Grimm’s Fairy Tales

Each week I aim to post at least one review from children’s and young adult fiction (or non-fiction if I get a book I want to rave about).

At Wicked Words I’m happy to discuss blog content and accept review copies from traditional publishers and their authors. If you have a post idea or review copy you think we would be interested in please contact us at:

or send to:

Wicked Words doesn’t accept any monetary compensation for the reviews it posts.

All reviews posted are the honest opinion of the reviewer.

Please note: Wicked Words is dedicated to the books we enjoy. While we do not guarantee a favourable review, we do not post reviews of books that we dislike or are unable to finish on this blog. I will also try my best not to post spoilers but give a general review about tone and writing with a few pertinent facts to support this.

How reviews are presented:

Each Wicked Words review contains cover artwork (where available), a synopsis of the book (taken from Goodreads, Waterstones, or the book jacket) and a review.

In addition to publication on this blog, Wicked Words reviews are published on Goodreads and Waterstones.

Book reviews are publicised and linked on the Wicked Words twitter account and the Wicked Words Facebook fan page.

Wicked Words reviews are unable to guarantee a publication date for an individual review however we endeavour to publish reviews of ARC’s in the month preceding publication or the two weeks following publication.

I used to be part of Amazon’s affiliate scheme but no longer do this as I think their practices are unfair to the book industry in the long term and could deprive readers of what they want, varied and interesting books. Buy your books from a local bookshop, keep people working in the industry, keep things local.
