About

authorphotoHi there! Thanks for visiting A Keyboard and an Open Mind. My name is Emily Witt. I’ve been a reviewer since 2014, though back then I was only reviewing one book a fortnight. My reviewing really took off at the end of 2015, and  I now try to review two books a week. I also post a reading check-in every Wednesday, and occasionally post other fun reading-related content.

I don’t really have a favourite genre exactly, and I read a bit of everything. Having said that, I read more Young Adult fiction than anything else, and urban fantasy or dystopia do seem to come out on top. Having said  that, I do also enjoy crime fiction, historical fiction, and thrillers. And it doesn’t have to be just for the younger age groups.

I don’t have a review policy, either, and you are welcome to contact me if you think I would like your book. Please do check out some of my past reviews to see if you think it is something I would enjoy and then the use the contact form (link at the top of the blog). However, I do reserve the right to either not read your book if I can’t manage it (I have a number of time demands) or to decide not to post a review. In either of these cases, I will contact you to let you know.

This blog actually started as a writing blog, but in May 2017, I started a new blog, Letting Out The Voices, to focus on my writing in a space separate to reading. I’d love if you checked it out, too.
