Review Policy & Requests

I love to review books. Gushing about what I loved about a book and what worked for me (and the things I didn’t like or didn’t work for me) not only allows me to help authors, but also to learn more about what I like in a book and improve my own writing. Basically, book reviews are little bundles of win.

Most of my book reviews come from arcs that I get as a monthly perk from being a member at my local indie, blog tours or just books that I’ve read recently and want to share my opinions on.


♥ = I did not like this book at all and would not recommend it to anyone.

♥ ♥ = I did not like this book, but I might recommend it to someone who I think will like it based on the genre, content, etc.

♥ ♥ ♥ = I liked this book and I thought it was good, but it was hard at times for me to get through/finish. I would recommend this book to people who I think will like it based on the genre, content, etc.

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ = I really liked this book and thought it was great for most of the time that I was reading it. I would recommend this book to people, even if it’s outside their usual genre or they’re not a frequent reader.

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ = I LOVED this book and it’s one of my all-time favorites. Watch out, because I’ll be signal boosting this one everywhere I can and will be recommending it to pretty much everyone I know.
