For the list of genres I read and review please visit my About Me page.
I accept ARCs, print copies, and ebooks. I prefer books as gifts from Amazon for my Kindle or a print copy to be sent to me directly. I also accept .mobi files.
Please email me first with information about yourself and the book you would like me to review. In the subject line state that this is a review request and put the title of your book. Let me know if your book is self-published (if you own or co-own the publishing company that published your book, I consider you self-published). I like to read a sample (like a first chapter) of your work before I decide to review your book (exception: blog tours). I only reply to review requests that are personalized with my name, e.g. Hi Jennifer, or something to that effect.
To make it simple, here is a checklist of what should be provided in a review request email:
– In subject line of the email state that this is a review request and the title of your book
– Book title and summary
– Info about the author (like name, past works, whatever is pertinent)
– Self-published or not?
– A sample of the book (the first chapter, if at all possible)
– Helpful links for me to check out (for book or author). I love Goodreads and Amazon links the most.
As of now, I am only accepting <1% of the review requests from self-published authors due to time constraints. The wait time for a review to be posted is around three-four months. We can discuss me posting my review earlier if need be. I only have time to reply to requests I am accepting.
Please know I will give an honest review of every book I read.
Detailed Rating System:
I would recommend reading all books three stars and up. Most of
the time, the bad parts I mention about three star and up books are pretty minor
in comparision to how much I enjoyed reading them. My star rating indicates how
much I enjoyed reading a book overall. All series reviews are based on the
assumption that you have read the previous books, which is what I always
★★★★★ (5 Stars) Mind Explosion!
I was blown away by how much I loved this book. I want to marry this book and have book babies with it. This is the kind of book I would read over and over again. If there were any bad parts, they in no way took away from the awesomeness of this book. Very highly recommended.
★★★★☆ (4 Stars) Loved It!
I loved reading this book. I would probably read it again once or twice. There might have been a couple of things that I didn’t like but they did not take too much away from how great this book was overall. Highly recommended.
★★★☆☆ (3 Stars) Liked It!
I liked this book. I am happy I read it, but I wouldn’t reread it. There were a few things that bothered me that took away some of the enjoyment, but overall it was a good read. Recommended to some (like for people who read the genre).
★★☆☆☆ (2 Stars) Not For Me!
This book was mediocre. It was okay in some parts, but the rest wasn’t up to par. I would only recommend this book to those who are obsessed with the author or the series it came from, otherwise, don’t waste your time.
★☆☆☆☆ (1 Star) Painful To Read!
I would not recommend this book to anyone. There was no redeemable qualities, and I wish I didn’t read it to begin with. I might not have even finished this book. I hereby divorce this book.
