What I review

I am currently accepting ARCs and finished copies. While I prefer physical copies, I will accept epub or mobi format ebooks.  I will accept self-published books at my own discretion.

I read widely, and there are not a lot of genres I won’t read. I only read adult, young adult, and new adult age categories.

Genres I prefer:

  • Mystery / crime / thriller
  • Fantasy / paranormal / supernatural
  • Soft science fiction
  • Horror
  • Romantic suspense / paranormal romance

Genres I don’t generally read:

  • Historical fiction (unless there’s a fantasy / thriller element. Or time travel. I love genre-blending!)
  • Romance on its own, especially if it’s depressing and serious (I love books in the vein of Sophie Kinsella’s Can You Keep a Secret?)
  • Literary fiction (depends on the hook)

Genres I won’t read:

  • Erotica*
  • Hard science fiction*

*If you have a hard science fiction / erotica, then we’re talking 😉

I will respond to all review requests as quickly as I can.

Content of Book Reviews

I provide my opinions on the book itself, the plot, the characters, the setting, and the language.  I’m candid about my opinions.  I avoid major spoilers, but it’s hard to write a review that’s entirely spoiler-free. (However, this depends on if you consider talking about character development, etc. a spoiler).  Reviews run from 400 – 1000 words.  Sometimes short and sweet hits the spot!

Reviews of books will be posted on this blog and on Goodreads.

If I receive a free copy of the book to review, I will state as such at the end of my review, in compliance with ethics and integrity and whatnot.
