Formats I Read


Self Published







I ‘m a mood reader so the time line that I could get a book I choose to review on the blog depends on when I read the book. When I finish the book it may be around 1 to 2 months before or after the book’s release date depending on how hectic my schedule gets. I cannot give an exact date for when reviews will be posted and know there are no guarantees I will read and review every book I receive.

My blog is the primary place where my reviews will be posted but I may also post review excerpts on Goodreads and Instagram.

I write reviews and maintain my blog for my love of books and all things book related and my reviews are honest no matter where the book is attained from. Know that my reviews are of my personal opinion and I like to talk about both positives and negatives in my reviews. I do not get any monetary compensation for my reviews and respect all ARCs, galleys, books received from author, publisher or promotion company.

I am cool with hosting Giveaways, Author interviews and Guest Post and more. I request that inquires be sent a couple of weeks before posting so that if I accept I have enough time to set things up.

I care about privacy so know that I will respect it and will not sell your personal information. With giveaways it will be clearly stated whether it is hosted by me, publisher, author est. I will not share your personal information without your permission used only to complete the giveaway. The winner name provided may be shown at the end of the giveaway. I may use a third party sites like Rafflecopter or Random.org for the giveaway.
