Request review by Marley

Who am I? 

I’m a 22-year-old from the northern parts of Norway, currently residing in the southern parts taking a BA in Graphic Design, but will be graduating during the spring of 2017! I’m overly interested in books, and because of my two interests; Graphic Design and books, I’m working towards my goal to become a graphic designer in the publishing business!


What I’ll read and review

  • YA Science fiction
  • YA Fantasy
  • YA Contemporary
  • YA Romance
  • YA and adult Horror
  • YA Thrillers

What I won’t read and review

  • Religion
  • Adult and YA Crime & suspense
  • Adult Non-Fiction
  • Adult Thrillers

Formats, guidelines and time frame

  • I only accept physical books; this is because I’ve had so many poor experiences with authors/publishers sending me ebooks. I’m sorry for this..
  • I have a instagram with over 650 followers, so any physical book I have is put on display there. I always show off my physical books; and I tend to write smaller reviews on my instagram with the book in discussion.
  • It means the world to me when authors or publishers find it worth their time and money to send me a physical copy.
  • Please note that i’m an international reader/reviewer from Norway, so if you send me an email telling me that you’ll ship the book, don’t go back on your word when you see that I’m from “overseas”.
