Contact Me & Review Policy

I am CLOSED to review requests due to an increase in my personal schedule. Please check back in a few weeks.

I am not a professional book reviewer. My policy for book reviews is to give a 100% honest review of the material provided to me of what I did like, did not like and reasons why.

I will consider all requests, however, I may not accept all requests. Acceptance does not guarantee a review. While I try to only accept books for review that I think I will enjoy reading,  I cannot guarantee a positive review. My reviews are an honest assessment of the book, which is in no way affected by how or where I received the book. I do not accept/receive monetary compensation for reviews. If you would like notice of a low rated review, please state that in your request.

Genres:

I am most likely to read the follow genres:

  • Adult fiction
  • Contemporary fiction
  • Fantasy
  • Science fiction
  • memoirs
  • Compelling non-fiction
  • Young Adult fiction

I do NOT read:

  • Adult romance
  • Erotica
  • Westerns
  • some Historical Fiction

Review Scale:

One star: For one reason or another I personally did not like or could not relate to this book. 

Two stars: This book made me go “meh”. It wasn’t the worst thing I’ve ever read, but definitely not my cup of tea.

Three stars: I didn’t dislike this book, but it wasn’t my favorite. I would most likely recommend this book to people I think would like this more than I would; however, I’m not doing cartwheels and throwing my pompoms in the air about it.

Four stars: I liked this book a lot, but there were a couple things that didn’t sway me into giving it the full five stars. Definitely a book I’d recommend to others and probably reread in the future.

Five stars: MIND BLOWN. This book is amazing! I can’t wait to make everyone read this and enjoy it as much as I did. I throw a party in this book’s honor.

Formats:

I accept finished books, ARCs, audiobooks and e-books that are Kindle compatible. I will NEVER share, forward, copy, distribute, trade, or in any way infringe on an author’s copyright regarding ebooks we receive. I will NEVER sell ARCs. However, with permission or at the request of the author or distributor may giveaway my copy as promotion. I will not review ARCs prior to 1 month of publishing date unless I am asked to do so otherwise.

At this time, I don’t review self-published work unless it has been professionally edited.

Review Time:

If you have a specific date that you would like the review to be posted, please let me know in your request and I will do my best to accommodate you. I do, however, have a very busy professional life and the average time for a review to be posted is within 2-6 weeks. All requested reviews will take precedence to my personal reading schedule. If you would like email notifications of my progress, please note that in your request. In addition to my blog site, my review will be posted or linked on my twitter, tumblr, and goodreads account.

For questions, comments, concerns, requests, suggestions, life advice, or anything else please use the comment form below.
