The joy of book blogging, in addition to reading some great books, is being able to share these books with others. I enjoy working with authors and publishers to help promote books, especially if these books are by debut or lesser-known authors. I am happy to accept review copies, hold author interviews or guest posts, participate in blog tours, or host giveaways.
My reviews will include:
Synopsis of the book (usually taken from Goodreads or the jacket flap)
Personal thoughts about the book
Please note: My reviews are my honest thoughts about the book. I do not accept payment for my reviews. Acceptance of a book does not guarantee a review. I will try and review all books in a timely manner, but due to time constraints, I cannot guarantee a review by a specific date.
I can accept books in the following formats:
Ebooks (PDF or ePub)
I review mainly Young Adult books, though I will occasionally review books with crossover appeal (select MG or Adult). Genres that I enjoy include:
I will consider select sci-fi or mystery/thriller books. I will not review nonfiction works. Only select self-published books will be accepted for review.
Reviews will be cross-posted on Goodreads, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble, and links will be sent to both Twitter and Facebook.
