REVIEW & PRIVACY POLICY

REVIEW POLICY

You may contact me via my contact form HERE.

  • I only respond to offers that interest me.
  • My eReader is a Kindle, so please only send me Kindle-compatible files (.mobi).
  • I prefer to receive physical review copies.
  • Please be aware that sometimes I have a large number of ARC’s to review, so I cannot guarantee your book will be reviewed within a short time period. Unless I choose to bump it up my list, of course!
  • I review honestly and sometimes I simply don’t like what I’m reading and I will express this in my review.
  • When I’m finished with e-ARC ‘s, I delete them from my device. A physical ARC I either keep or I pass it on to my bookish friends for no payment.
  • I do not review any of the following genres; Young Adult Fiction, Romance, Science Fiction, Fantasy.

All of my reviews are the personal opinions of someone who reads for pleasure in her free time. Receiving free ARC’s does not impact my thoughts and opinions of the book in any way.
