JemimaReads is a positive space

Reading and blogging is my hobby.

For ARCs, I am happy to receive eBooks and other digital copies as well as Audiobooks. I do not expect to receive physical copies of books. I do not expect payment in exchange for a review. Yes, I am in a Book Club -in fact, I run one!

I am an avid reader and equally fast writer, I am always happy to post a review and rating within a 2-week window of publication date (either before or after). As you may have figured out already, I am based in London, England. I use British English spelling and idioms.

JemimaReads supports equal civil rights and takes part in peaceful activism by, including but not limited to, being an LGBTQ+ ally and supporting Black Lives Matter and their right to peacefully protest. JemimaReads publicly denounces systematic oppression and racism and encourages everyone to not just be non racist but to be explicitly anti racist.

For a sample of my original work, please read my book reviews.

You can also find my reviews on Goodreads @JemimaReads.
