What you can expect from me:
First, I'm not a professional reviewer by any means. I'm simply someone that enjoys sharing my thoughts about the books I read. Sometimes, this leads to a decent and well thought out review. Most times, though, it's just some ramblings about a book.

My reviews contain my thoughts and feelings about the book that I read. They are always my own opinion. Occasionally, this means writing a negative review. This is never to tear down or belittle someone's work. I am only providing my honest opinion of the book I have read. I promise to try to write any negative reviews in a constructive way.

I try to read and review the books I receive in a timely fashion. However, I cannot promise that your book will be read and reviewed by a certain date (life happens!). If you send an ARC, I will do my best to have the book read and reviewed within a week of its release date.

If I read and review your book, I will post the review and a star rating to my blog. I will also post the review on Goodreads, and Amazon. I may decide to post reviews elsewhere in the future. If you wish for me to post my review to a specific site, I will try to accommodate your request. Whenever the review has been posted, I will send any links to the review to you (through Netgalley, email, etc).

Books I accept:
My interests vary widely when it comes to books. Please see my shelves on Goodreads (Read and TBR) in order to get a feel for my interests. If you are still unsure whether or not your book would be something I’d be interested in reading, feel free to contact me at the above mentioned email and we can figure it out together.

I accept ARCs and published copies of books. Self-published books are accepted! I will accept eBooks (mobi/azw3 format is preferred, but epub is accepted as well), physical printed copies, and audiobooks (however, I request an eBook as well when reviewing an audiobook, if possible). Please indicate in your original email which format you wish to send me.

If your book is part of a series that I haven't read previously, then I request that you send the previous books as well. This allows for a more effective review. Each book will be reviewed.

What happens after you send your request?
If you’ve emailed me and haven’t received a response, I apologize. Please note, I do try to respond to all requests in a timely manner, even those I don’t accept, but it doesn't always happen. Sometimes life gets in the way and I’m unable to respond. If I do accept a book, it does not guarantee a review. While I try my hardest to review all books I receive, sometimes it can’t be helped (of course, I will email you to inform you of this).
My Rating System

5 stars – This was an amazing book. I absolutely loved it and would recommend it to someone.
4 stars – I really liked this book. I would most likely recommend this book to someone.
3 stars – I liked this book overall, but there was something about it that I didn’t like.
2 stars – The book was just okay. There were numerous things that I didn’t like, but there were still parts of the book I enjoyed.
1 star – I didn’t like the book.

Half star ratings are also used. Each book will be rated individually. Ratings are based on my personal enjoyment of that particular book. I do not rate books against one another. While two books may have the same rating, they are not always equivalent. I know that may be confusing, but rating books isn't easy!
