I’m an Australian blogger who lives in Melbourne, Victoria. I don’t have any pets, vices (apart from books), and am committed to life-long education. With this in mind, my official qualifications are a BA in Literature and Religious studies and a BS/BBS in Biochemistry and Genetics (H1 Honours). I am currently undertaking a PhD in Genetics at Monash University.
I started this blog way back in 2012 because I wasn’t reading all of the novels I was buying. Four years on, I hardly ever buy books, and receive most of my reading material from publishers and indie authors. I also enjoy the occasional talking book borrowed from my local library.
I accept almost any genre of book for review, non-fiction included. My special interests are in fantasy, queer (LGBT), young adult, mental health disorders and real-life crime, with a smattering of other genres. I generally do not review short story collections or graphic novels.
I review paperback novels, and I am NOT ACCEPTING EBOOKS at this time. If you would like me to consider your novel for review purposes, please email me at
thecosydragon (at) gmail (dot) com
I can promise a 2-3 month turnaround time, and an honest review on this blog and any other sites you may require (Amazon and GoodReads by default). Links to reviews are also posted on Facebook and Twitter.
I receive novels for no other compensation other than a free copy of the novels from:
- Allen and Unwin
- Random House
- Pantera Press
- Vivid Publishing
- Simon and Schuster
- Harlequin Publishing
