About Me

I’m an avid reader, and have been since I was a child.  I’ll read pretty much anything, although I tend to stick to fiction, with only the occasional sojourn into non-fiction.  I enjoy a wide variety of genres, and try to vary what I’m reading from one book to the next.  That said, I do have a penchant for post-apocalyptic and dystopian fiction – something that started when I read 1984 and Brave New World at A-Level.

My reviews are spoiler free – I’d hate to ruin a novel for someone – and will always reflect my own opinion.

You can contact me via Twitter (@tiny_ickle_jo) or email (josbookblog@gmail.com), but please note that I am not currently accepting review requests.


  1. Hi Jo!
    My pen name is Melinda De Ross and I am a romance author. I would like to ask if you are interested in reviewing my upcoming release, a stand-alone contemporary romance novel called Celebrity that will be released on Nov 7th 2017.
    I would be happy to provide you with a free eBook copy, and if you think you would like any of my other books, you have free guaranteed copies. 🙂
    This is what Celebrity is about: https://www.amazon.com/Celebrity-Melinda-Ross-ebook/dp/B074SJZFG7/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8
    I very much hope you are interested in reading and reviewing it.
    Thank you for your time.
    Melinda De Ross,

    1. Hi Melinda,

      Thanks for the offer of a review copy of your forthcoming novel. I don’t read romance, so I don’t think that this would be a good fit for my blog, but I do appreciate the offer.

      Best wishes,
