WHEN I REVIEW A BOOK
How I review:

I write honest reviews that are given a star-scale rating.
I try to keep the audience in mind when rating a novel – Even if a book is not right for someone, others may enjoy it depending on the type and it’s to those I will recommend.


The ratings are as follows: 

5 stars – Fantastic. Highly recommend.
4 stars- Amazing! Really liked it! Definitely recommend.
3 stars – I liked it. It was good but I had some problems with it. But recommended for people that enjoyed previous works by the author / similar works.
2 stars – Meh. Didn’t like it for some reason. Would only recommend if…
1 stars – Didn’t enjoy it at all.

ALSO, I give half stars!

  • I don’t do reviews of DNF books!

How you’ll know I’ve reviewed:

I confirm receipt of all books via email. If asked, I will contact you when I begin reading the novel. I will also link you to the review once it is posted on my blog.

When I review them, I post them here and on Goodreads (also on Amazon if asked)  I occasionally share the link on Twitter and Instagram.


I do not receive any compensation for my reviews. What I write are my true thoughts and nothing more.


I look forward to working with you, and becoming a part of the book promotional process!
