Review Policy

WHY I’M HERE:

Like everyone else in the book blogging kingdom, I am obsessed with books…what may be different though is that I am a 30-something gal who mainly has her nose in a YA novel when not doing other things. I am not a professional reviewer and do not receive payment of any kind for my posts. This is purely for fun and because the enormous book blogging community is just so awesome, I had to be a part of it.

MY REVIEW POLICY:

Books are sturdy, unshakeable things, here for our enjoyment and critiques. Authors, as such, are also thick skinned individuals who know that when they put their writing out there for the masses to read, it is entirely possible that their novels will be praised or torn apart…oftentimes it’s both given the massive amount of readers out there with different tastes. So, book reviews are expected to be brutally honest in every way and that is what every post I write will be.

Each review will include my personal opinions, both the good, the bad, and the ugly. I’ll try my best not to be too harsh on any particular book because I do truly respect the hard work it takes to write anything and then put it out there to be reviewed, but if I do have something negative to say, just know that it is not a personal attack on the author. It is solely based on the book itself and how I felt while reading it. That being said – the majority of my reviews here  will probably be between 3-5 flowers (see rating system below) however, I will also post reviews for books that rate lower as long as I finish the book and have something to say about it.

WHAT I REVIEW:

Currently, as this is a new adventure for me, I will be reviewing books that I have either purchased myself or borrowed from the library. All books will be in print or ebook formats, with the occasional (but rare) audiobook.

MY REVIEWS WILL ALWAYS INCLUDE:

Book Title
Book Cover
Genre
Type
Format & Number of Pages
Publication Date

PREFERRED GENRES:

OTHER POST CATEGORIES:

There will also be other types of posts written here. Things such as news from the publishing world about new releases, books to film, book titles, book cover reveals, author info., and etc. I am also looking into other featured posts that I’ve heard are popular from my friends in the community…but more on those to come as things develop here. I’m new to this so please hang in there while I get things situated.
