Further Information:

Please remember when you send me a request to review your title I reserve the right to decline. Not all submissions I receive will be selected for a review. I promise to reply as promptly as possible with a yes or no. Also, if the author or publisher needs the review done in a certain time frame I will need to be notified so that I can schedule appropriately. Anyone can find a list of the books I am about to read on my Goodreads To Read shelf.

Review Information:

Reviews will be posted to my blog and to my Goodreads page. My review style is more relaxed in nature and relaxed as opposed to a formal literary style. All this means is that when I read and review a book I don’t critique it from a point of understanding whether it was laid out or written according to certain standards. I just want to enjoy the story within and then reveal in my review what might bring others to enjoy it as well. Reviews may also contain spoilers but they will always be marked or noted in some way. If you would prefer that I not include spoilers in my review, then please send me a message and I will remove all spoilers.

Every book I review or read will be given my honest opinion. This means that all of my reviews are what I consider to be my most constructive and straightforward thoughts on the book. I also attempt to keep my reviews on the positive side and critique, not criticize, as I believe I can always find something that a reader will enjoy about a particular book. If there is something I did not enjoy about the book, I explain my reasoning behind it and will not just leave it as a simple like or dislike. The same goes for a book I am unable to finish. If I do not complete a book it will also not receive a star rating as I do not believe in giving a rating to a book I am not finishing. You may find a breakdown of my star ratings on my Rating System page.
