Thank you for visiting Bookstore Binge – my blog to review books and bookish items, including subscription book boxes. All reviews are my own honest and unbiased opinions, this includes any books reviewed for a publisher or won in a giveaway which I will clearly mark on a review.
This is the place that you can find a little more about me, if you have any questions you’d like to see answered, then please click the contact me button above.
So who are you?
My name is Megan, I am a 27 year old British Bookworm, living in England. I have a degree in Forensic Science but currently work in Student Support at a University. I have always loved books and reading, but I am slowly increasing my reading having recovered from a University length reading slump.
What do you read?
I read a lot of Young Adult at the moment, with a preference for Dystopian, Supernatural/Fantasy and Sci-Fi genres. Although I have also been developing more of a taste for Contemporary and Romance following the recent pandemic events. Within Adult fiction, I tend to read Mystery/Thriller, Romance and Horror novels. I have also been reading more Middle Grade in 2020, as who doesn’t love a magical world designed for children when you just want to escape.
I also enjoy audiobooks and graphic novels across all age categories.
Books that have LGBTQIA+ rep or mental health rep also hold a special place in my heart, as someone who has experience with both of these areas,
How much do you read?
More than I used to and slowly improving:
2015 – 17 books
2016 – 31 books
2017 – 50 books
2018 – 62 books
2019 – 75 books
2020 – 58 books
Which subscription boxes do you get?
Currently I am a subscriber to Illumicrate, Fairyloot and Book Hooked Box. I have also previously received and tried boxes from Book Box Club and Owlcrate. I also presently subscribe to the Premier and GSFF monthly books from Goldboro books.
Do you accept ARCs?
I am not taking requests through my website in 2021, presently I will accept ARCs, eARCs or finished copied for review but only where I have requested the title (predominantly via Netgalley, or through Publisher Blogger requests). This is to allow me to focus on upcoming releases I have already received and also to review some historic titles where I wish to fulfil feedback.
All reviews on my blog are my honest opinions and are not available for edits by authors or publishers.
Where else can you be found?
I am also on Goodreads, The StoryGraph, Instagram and Twitter, under the name ‘bookstorebinge’.
