REVIEWS

Please be advised that if I do agree to read your book, that does not guarantee you a review.

I reserve the right to give my honest opinion on all books that I review and always express how the book made me feel. Most books I choose to read are books that I enjoy or believe I will enjoy. In my reviews, I always try to mention aspects of the book I liked and things I did not, then give a brief explanation why. I mention my impressions of the plot, characters, and overall thoughts on the book or series. I will never post nasty or unkind comments about the author.

I reserve the right to shelf a book as DNF (did not finish) if it did not work out for me, even if I have already accepted the request to read it. Books shelved under DNF will not receive any star rating.

As per my new review policy established in 2016, I will no longer post spoilers in my reviews. Old reviews may still contain minor spoilers, but have warnings.

I will do my best to post reviews in a timely manner, but please be aware that I am very busy (full-time job, writing my own novels, familial responsibilities, etc.) and may not be able to follow release dates. If there is a certain time frame or date you would like the review to be posted, I would like to have at least 2 – 3 months in advance to read and review the book. If you would like for me to read a book that is in the middle of a series, I would be happy to, but require the previous books in that series as I will not read them out of order.

I post reviews on my blog, Goodreads, and Amazon. If there is any additional website you would like for me to post, please let me know and I will gladly accommodate your request. I will notify you when I have posted my review and provide links to them.

RATING BREAKDOWN

★★★★★ – It was amazing and I loved it. The book left an impression on me and I felt so much by the end of it. Highly recommended!

★★★★☆ – I loved the book and really enjoyed reading it. There was one prominent issue or several minor ones that prevented me from giving it a 5 star rating, but would still recommend it nonetheless.

★★★☆☆ – The book was good, but I had issues with it. I may have felt conflicted with giving it a higher or lower rating, but felt that the book was enjoyable and entertaining enough to get 3 stars. Probably recommend.

★★☆☆☆ – Didn’t really enjoy reading it but at least I finished? Very few redeeming qualities of the book and I found it difficult to find many aspects of the story, characters, etc. that I liked. Probably do not recommend.

★☆☆☆☆ – Wasted my time reading it; time I wish I could get back. Absolutely disliked the book and could not find any redeeming qualities. Do not recommend at all.

☆☆☆☆☆ – I do not rate books I have DNF’d.
