Reviewing books is a hobby of mine. If you have asked me to review a book and I have accepted you can expect a review within 4-6 weeks after I've received the book. If the book is an ARC a review will be posted 1-2 weeks before the release date, unless specified. I reserve the right to not finish a book and if I don't finish it, then I also have the right to not write a review. Reviews will be posted on here, BookLikes, and on Goodreads.

Preferred Genres:  

  • Fantasy 
  • Dystopian 
  • Paranormal
  • Science fiction

 Genres I don't review by request

  • Manga
  • Middle Grade
  • Non fiction
  • Adult

Accepted Formats

Rating System

One star:  Painful and a waste of my time. I either could barely finish this book or I didn't finish it.
Would I read the sequel(s)? Nope. Would I recommend this book? Nope.

Two stars: It wasn't my cup of tea. I might have liked a very small part of the book.
Would I read the sequel(s)? Probably not. Would I recommend this book? There's a good chance I won't.

Three stars: Enjoyable but definitely not the best book I've ever read.
Would I read the sequel(s)? It's possible. Would I recommend this book? Maybe to someone who really enjoys this type of book.

Four stars: It was fantastic but there were a few flaws.  
Would I read the sequel(s)? Definitely. Would I recommend this book? I would recommend it to almost everyone.

Five Stars:  Perfection. I couldn't put it down and it is probably one of my favorite books now.  
Would I read the sequel(s)? I'm impatiently waiting for the sequel or running out to the bookstore/library right now. Would I recommend this book? Of course! Everyone should get to experience this level of awesome.

Half Stars: Books that I have mixed feelings about or are hard to rate will have half stars.

Like Erika, reviewing books is a hobby of mine. Emphasis on the "hobby". I will read any book that I have accepted, but there is no defined turnaround time. I used to do that, but I found it too stressful being told what to do and it took the enjoyment out of reading. Reviews will be posted here and on Goodreads.

Preferred Genres:  

  • Fantasy 
  • Sci-Fi
  • Mystery
  • Dystopian
  • Historical Fiction

 Genres I don't review by request

  • Middle Grade
  • Non fiction
  • Adult

I've tried reading ebooks and I just can't do it. They're too distracting to read.

Same as Erika's.
