Welcome to my tiny corner of the world. Here you will find brief reviews, my opinions, on books I read. You will also find interviews, Q&A’s, with authors to gain insight into the mind behind the works. Enjoy, and hopefully you’ll find a new treasure.
I get a bit of help reading and reviewing certain books. Who best to tell you if a book geared towards children is actually interesting to a child’s mind, but a child? I have two older children and one younger child who are also avid readers and enjoy offering their opinions.
At times I’ll receive a request to review a book I’m not particularly fond of due to my own moods or preferences but the writing is actually good and the sort of genre my book loving friends adore. At those times, unless the submitting individual requests otherwise, the book is actually read by someone other than myself. I then discuss with them what they liked and didn’t like about the book, compose the review (sometimes in my own words) and post it. I will make mention in the review who read it.

Where do I get these books? A variety of places including publishers, authors, publicists, Goodreads and NetGalley. I am never compensated in any way in return for an honest review. These are my opinions freely given. In accordance with FCC guidelines: Every post should include a line stating I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review, or that I own the book, but being human I sometimes forget to include that line with the review.
Every review is my intellectual property. As the writer of this blog I herby state that my reviews are not to be copied or shared unless you have my express permission.
If you have a book you would like me to review, feel free to contact me. I can promise I will consider reading your book and if I accept it, I can promise I will read it and review it. I can not, however, promise the review will be favorable.
If you would like a review and would be willing to donate a physical copy of your book for the library I work for, please contact me so we can arrange that. Physical copies are highly appreciated as we (TC Library) have a limited budget and a large population of patrons eagerly awaiting that next great book. I can promote your book within the library with bookmarks and other small items. Our patrons LOVE bookmarks.
Do not try to bribe a more favorable review. I do not accept payment or any sort of compensation beyond the free copy of the book to be reviewed. At times a book might be part of a series. In that case I will accept copies of the previous books in the series in order to better understand and enjoy the following book.
If you have concerns about having your book reviewed here please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’m not going to bite, I promise.
If you love to read and write your thoughts about it on your blog, feel free to place a comment below with who you are and your blog site or contact me concerning cross promotional ideas. This does not necessarily mean I agree with any thoughts opinions or ideas posted on said blog or other places it may link to.
