If you've stumbled upon this page I'm going to guess that you're one of three people - you're either a fellow book nerd like myself, a book publisher, and/or an author. If you are the former, please scroll towards the end of this page for my book review rating system! If you are the latter two please keep reading to have a better idea of whether you'll think I would be a good fit for your book publicity!

 

I tend to review the following genres:

  • Age Groups
    • YA (Young Adult)
    • NA (New Adult)
    • Adult
I usually prefer to read and review books for the YA and NA age groups, but in some cases I will read Adult novels as well (preferably paranormal romance or historical romance).

IMPORTANT NOTE: eBooks are less likely to be accepted due to the nature of the format. I prefer a physical copy! Personally, print format is the easiest to read and there's just something about being able to touch/hold/feel the book you're reading, you know? Your best chance of me reviewing a novel is if it consists all of the following: a book series, fantasy, romance, and adventure in print format!

Some of my favorite authors include:

  • Holly Black
  • Rachel Vincent
  • O.R. Melling
  • Patricia Briggs

Some of my favorite books/series:

  • Modern Faerie Tales series by Holly Black
  • Stray series by Rachel Vincent
  • Alosha series by Christopher Pike
  • Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs
  • Wicked Lovely series by Melissa Marr
  • The Chronicles of Faerie by O.R. Melling

My Personal Book Rating System

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ = I absolutely adore this book! There's a good possibility of this becoming a favorite book or series and there's even a chance of my rereading it in the future. The story had a wonderful plot, characterization, and world-building! I now have new favorite characters and there was squealing of excitement involved! I will without a doubt recommend this read!

⭐⭐⭐⭐ = A really great read! The book kept me entertained and I especially enjoyed it! I will definitely recommend this book to others!

⭐⭐⭐ = A good read! The story may or may not have kept my attention for the majority of the book, but it was decent and not a waste of reading time. Not sure if I will bother recommending to others, maybe I will or maybe I wont - it depends on the story.

⭐⭐ = This was an okay read. I didn't quite care for it or maybe it wasn't my cup of tea. I really wish I hadn't taken the time to finish this book or there's a chance I DNF'd it. I will not be recommending this unless I believe someone with different tastes would enjoy it.

⭐ = I did not care for this book at all! It was terrible writing or did not keep me engaged in the story. I definitely DNF'd this book! If this is the case, then the book cover failed me with a false description/pretty cover because let's face it - I'm like 99% sure that all bookworms judge a book by it's cover because we're human and it's science (and for the most part I'm a pretty good judge of character when it comes to gauging whether I'll enjoy a book or not). Of course I'm not recommending, what's the point? If the book gets brought up in conversation I will tell people it is not worth their time!
