Book Review Policy


Please note:

I reserve the right to decline any book for any reason.

I will review your book in an honest, constructively critical way.  If I dislike the book, I reserve the right to not finish it and let you know that I’ve declined to review it based on being unable to finish it.  I will not post a review for a book I did not finish reading.

I handle review requests in the order they are received.  Please keep in mind that I also review ARCs received from NetGalley, but I try to alternate between those and ones requested by an author.

If you would like me to review your book, please make sure I receive a copy in the EPub format.  PDF versions are difficult for me to read, and slows down the reading/review process. If you can use Calibre to reformat them prior to sending them, I would appreciate it.

All of the reviews listed here will also be located on my Goodreads account.

I receive free ARC copies in return for honest reviews of an author’s work. I am not compensated in any way and do this of my own free will and time.  Thanks.

Star ratings:

5 stars – Loved it. One of my absolute favorite books in this genre.  Please note this doesn’t necessarily mean it is the BEST book ever, but there was something about it that just drew me in completely.   I’d recommend it to EVERYONE who enjoys the genre I’m reviewing.

4 ½ stars – Loved it, but there was just one small little thing that bothered me and kept me from going all the way.  Still highly recommend it for people who enjoy the genre I’m reviewing.

4 stars – Really liked it.

3 ½ stars – Liked it, but there was just something holding me back from really enjoying it.

3 stars – It was okay, but wasn’t wowed by it.

2 stars – Didn’t really like it, but there was something in the book that I did like.  Or it showed some promise, it just wasn’t executed as well as it could have been.

1 star – Couldn’t stand the book and barely managed to finish it.

**I have stated before that I would not review a book I didn’t finish.  I put those in my flounced folder on GoodReads if you are curious what I just couldn’t get through.

If you have any questions or concerns about my review policy, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Love to hear from you
