If you are an author or publisher, please read the following sections carefully before submitting a review request. Once you have fully read and understood the below, please fill out the form here.

I am more than happy to consider your book for review, but please know that I am one person, and will not be able to accept each request that I receive. Please keep in mind, that having your book accepted does not guarantee I will review it. I abide by the "50 Page Rule" if I'm not enjoying your book by 50 pages in, I will move onto the next.

I have a large pile of books that need to be read either for pleasure or for review. This being said, I do not read books in any specific order, or how I receive them via the requests form. You have the option to request a specific review date, and unless I have agreed to give you that specific date, I will get to your book when I decide to read it. When choosing which book to read next, I always go for the ones that call out my name, and some are louder than others.

Please keep in mind, that I do not always accept date requests.

I loved this book. This doesn't mean the book was perfect, but I would re-read it as many times as I my heart desired. I will talk about this book with anyone who is willing to listen.

This was a great book, however, it lacked something that I can't put my finger on. While it had a few flaws, that didn't stop me from enjoying it.

I didn't love it but I also didn't it. It's a hit or miss. There were flaws that were too numerous or significant to overlook.

It had too many flaws to be an enjoyable read, or it just wasn't a book for me. While some people could find this book enjoyable, I am obviously not the target audience.

This is a book that I either didn't finish or didn't like in the slightest. It's a waste of time that has no redeemable qualities.
