Timeline for Accepting Books
It would be wonderful if you could send me a book 1-2 months before you would prefer to have a review posted. I work full-time so that does keep me a bit busy. I like to try and plan my posts ahead of time in order to stay on top of things.
- Historical fiction
- Contemporary romance
Please do not send review requests for poetry, non-fiction, biographies, memoirs, and short stories (or short story compilations).
Reviews and Formatting
Please note that any reviews I post here will also be posted on Goodreads.

Summary from Goodreads
Review. I try to keep my review to discussing two to four things I liked (or disliked) about the book. I also try to not have my reviews be too long. I want to keep them at a manageable length so that anyone reading my reviews can get an idea of what they might get out of reading the book, but always being sure to never give too much away about the story.
5 stars: Perfect. I loved everything about it.
4 stars: Great book. It wasn’t perfect, but I definitely enjoyed reading it.
3 stars: Decent. There were things I enjoyed and other things I didn’t but the things I enjoyed slightly outweighed the things I did not.
2 stars: There are probably some things I liked about the book, but the things I dislike unfortunately outnumber the good things.
1 star: There wasn’t really anything about the book that I enjoyed.
If I’m truly torn between two ratings (i.e.: I feel it wasn’t perfect enough for a 5 star rating but deserved better than 4 stars), then I will add a half a star somewhere in there.
