“Ariatu PR worked with Hannah on a consumer brand campaign in 2019 and we were not only impressed by the way in which she engaged with us and the product but also the quality of the content that she shared. She has a dynamic and refreshing approach to content creation which reflected a genuine care for the product as well as for her audience. Her authentic approach meant that our client was able to trust her review and amplify it across social media. We would definitely recommend to other colleagues and use her for relevant campaigns in the future.”

Ronka Lawal, Ariatu PR

“Pages, Places, & Plates is an awesome blog and Hannah is great to work with! When she reviewed my travel card game she gave a thorough description, plenty of great quotes, and took wonderful photos that showcased the product. I hope to work with her again on many future projects!”

Joshua Lobkowicz, Travel Buddy Games

“Tea and books pair so well together and Hannah spent so much time and effort tasting the teas and matching the tea and how you might read a particular book. Absolutely loved that she went to the extra effort of making and pairing food with reading and drinking tea.  Brilliant!!”

Uma, Miss TeaSmith

Isobel Blackthorn, Blackthorn Book Tours

“I worked with Hannah on a review of my latest travelogue Into Adventure and Sunshine. She was professional from the outset, making it clear what she could and couldn’t deliver, and responding quickly to emails. She is clearly hard-working and passionate about what she does, with this passion shining through in her reviews and blog posts.”

Ian M, Packham, author of Into Adventures & Sunshine

“Hannah gave my book Alien Places a great review – she had clearly thought a lot about the book itself, her response to it, the wider issues and solutions, as well as the humour / entertainment value. And she took the time to make a fabulous photo to go with her review! Thanks Hannah! Atul & Alien”

Atul Kumar, author of Alien Places

“Hannah gave an insightful and eloquent review for my book An Excuse For Murder. Going beyond a mere plot summary, she provided a thoughtful analysis of the characters and genre conventions, along with her personal opinion. To top it off, Hannah also discussed An Excuse For Murder on The Versatile Writer podcast. I have no doubt, readers will be looking to her blog again and again to help stock their TBR piles!”

Vanessa Westermann, author of An Excuse For Murder

“Pages, Places, & Plates was a stop on the blog tour for the launch of my Beautiful, Complicated Family book series. Hannah was responsive throughout the process, and it was a pleasure to work with her. Her book review was honest and thoughtful, and it prompted good engagement from her readers. It was a treat that Hannah also discussed my work during her monthly feature on the Writer’s Block radio show. That was a lovely surprise!”

Rosey Lee, author of Beautiful, Complicated Family

“I asked Hannah for a simple book review. Hannah gave me what every writer loves to know from a reader. In her review, Hannah wrote about how she experienced the story, how it changed and influenced her, and what she learned. Brilliant. Thank you, Hannah. The exposure you gave my novel worked wonders.”

B, Jeanne Shibaharu, author of KAEROU Time To Go Home

“Hannah’s review of my book, Salvador Dalí at Home, came as a surprise. When I reached out to her, I had seen quickly the high quality of her blog and reviews. Then afterwards I didn’t dwell too much on how the review would be. When Hannah published the review, I was very impressed with the amount of insight and the obvious depth of thought that went into it. She understood not only the subject matter but also my challenge as a writer in dealing with Dalí. I would highly recommend Hannah to all authors as she offers special insight and professionalism.”

Jackie de Burca, author of Salvador Dalí At Home

“Always a pleasure to work with Hannah whenever i have a new book out. Great help with promoting my book.”

Holly Martin, author of The Summer Of Chasing Dreams and the Happiness series

“When Hannah reviewed my first non-fiction book I was uncertain what to expect, as it was a completely new experience for me. I was so pleasantly surprised. She was a pleasure to work with, friendly and open and she provided an honest and well written review. Since then I have read many of her blog posts and have found them all informative and interesting.”

Brenda Cox, author of No Tigers, No Lions

“Pages Places & Plates is a nice cozy blog with very helpful professional reviews. Hannah Read has reviewed several of my short stories, and those are some of my favorite reviews. When you are expecting someone to write a review to your book you are looking for a perfect reader who will dive deep into your story, catch your pitch, get all the jokes, puns and hidden gems to share their impression with other readers in a creative modern way. And this is exactly what I feel when reading Hannah’s reviews, so I will be happy if she reviews my new upcoming books.”

Anton Eine, author of The Cleaning, Post-Molecular Comfort Food, and Plus Ten

“Hannah gave my novel Beyond The Moon such a lovely, well-crafted and thoughtful review on her book blog, and was an absolute pleasure to deal with.”

Catherine Taylor, author of Beyond The Moon

“Pages Places & Plates is a great book blog, and Hannah gives really worthwhile reviews that are intelligent, considered and well written, offering real value and insight.”

Clodagh Murphy, author of For Love Or Money

“Hannah is true to herself and won’t feed you nonsense. She gave a great review for my book without giving away the plot but still giving more information than the blurb. This helps people make an educated choice before they buy.”

Tineke Peeters, author of Book Of Panacea

“I recommend any author interested in gaining a helpful, honest, thorough review request one from Hannah. She is excellent. True to her word, she posted a review quickly. She was easy to work with and offered great input. I hung on every word. Now I’m hoping she’ll have time to review my next novel.”

Cyndie Zahner, author of Dream Wide Awake
