Due to having a HUGE, towering TBR list, and struggling to keep up with the titles I already have, I am not accepting many new books for review. I will of course respond to those I am interested in, but due to a large number of emails I can’t respond to everything – really sorry! However, I am always open to posting content as part of the blog tours – author posts, spotlight posts, extracts, giveaways, etc… do get in touch at to discuss 🙂 Always keen to help promote authors and books on here!

I read a wide range of genres and like trying new styles, but I mostly read fiction from the following categories:

Mystery/ thriller
> Literary fiction
> Crime/ Detective
> Women’s fiction
> Humour
> Horror
> Romance
> Historical fiction
> YA
And I LOVE cooking so anything cookery / recipe / food related, especially healthy eating, is usually of interest to me! Also enjoy interesting autobiographies 🙂

I post all my reviews on Goodreads, Amazon and anywhere else applicable too, and share via social media.
I accept printed copies (preferred but I do know and understand that they’re a lot more expensive to provide) as well as e-books.


  1. Dear Snazzybooks blogger,
    Like your snazzy site, especially your Easter reading list. I’m a huge fan of Easter.
    Are you planning a Mother’s Day reading list, too? In which case, please consider reviewing my novel, The Gift Counselor. Though set in the Christmas season, it focuses on the year-round activity of gift gifting and has garnered 28 reviews on amazon and 7 on goodreads, Plus, The Gift Counselor just won the 2015 Beverly Hills Book Awards. It is recommended for book clubs, too.

  2. Hello Sheila, Thanks for your message.
    I am not planning a Mothers’ Day list as such this year, as it was back in March so I think I’ve missed the boat on that one! The Easter list was just a list of what I was reading at the time, so I will definitely do more of these in the future and I am always reviewing books. I’ve got quite a backlog of books to review at the moment but your novel looks really interesting to me so I’d be really happy to review it at some point in the not-too-distant future!
    If this sounds OK to you then my email is 🙂
    Many thanks,

  3. Hi,
    I visit your blogs and read some parts of it and thought you made some really great points. If you have a chance, please read and review my book if you are interested, titled ” Enter The Monkey”. Enter The Monkey is an exquisitely and often painfully soul-baring true life story. I think it might be of interest to your readers.If you do please let me know.

  5. Hi Sanzzybooks blogger, love your site. I’m always reading new books that I want to talk about. The latest one is The Alphabet of Heart’s Desire by Brian Keaney which is loosely based a period in the life of Thomas de Quincy, the author of Confessions of an opium eater. I love historical fiction that weaves fact with fiction and this works so well. There are 3 stories interwoven, those of Thomas de Quincey, Anne, a prostitute and Tuah, a slave. All have been shockingly abused and damaged in very different ways but Tuah’s story will stay with me for a long time. The historical details of Victorian London and the continuing narratives as we switch from Anne to Tuah to Thomas makes for a cracking read. This is strong historical fiction, well written, pacy and absorbing.

  6. Hi Laura,
    I am confident you won’t want to miss my book “FLIRT A novel of lust, love, and murder.” I’m very proud of it and it has had great reader reaction, even some requests for a sequel.
    Please, enjoy and review it.

    Also available as an eBook

  7. Dear Laura,

    I would be honored if you would consider “Remembering the Future: Reflections on Ugandan Culture in Changing Times” for a review. It’s not exactly on your list of preferred books, but I think you’ll find this collection of true stories by some leading African writers powerful and inspiring. It offers a vivid portrait of today’s Africa — and some inspiring ideas about of social values for readers anywhere. I hope you will consider it. I, of course, will send a copy your way if you are interested.

  8. Dear Laura,

    I recently came across your blog, Snazzy Books, and was impressed by your diverse interests in genres and commitment to reviewing self-published books. I have a novel, “To Die The Way of the Feathered Serpent,” which explores themes of existentialism, spirituality, and the human condition, and I believe it could be a great fit for your blog.

    The novel delves into profound philosophical questions, interweaving them within a contemporary narrative. I believe your readers who enjoy thought-provoking literature would find it intriguing. I would be honored if you would consider reviewing my book.

    I look forward to the possibility of working together and am excited to hear your thoughts on the novel.

    Best regards,
    Gerardo Solórzano Gutiérrez
