My name is Jen and I am a book reviewer, book blogger and book promoter. I have been running this blog for a few years now, and I am loving every minute of it! I am here to promote the work of hardworking authors and their amazing and imaginative stories. Though I cannot give every book a 5 star review, I do my best to be as honest and constructive as possible.
A little bit about me:
I am 28-year-old introverted extrovert living in Western United States, lurking through cemeteries and chugging black tea like my life depends on it. Reading is basically my life and I love getting lost in fictional worlds, but I also love tarot, tea leaf readings, plants, video games, hiking, exploring, following proto, swimming and anything that will frighten me. I love the gothic and dark aspects of life, but I’m the most smiley and happy goth you’ll ever encounter. It has been 5 years since I started this blog (wow!) and I was only interested in YA Contemporary and Fantasy. Now I read just about anything, especially thrillers and books that will rip my heart from my chest.
Reviewing Process for Authors:
If you would like me to review one of your books or a series, please go to my “Contact” section and send me an email. I naturally prefer hard copies, but will gladly accept Nook Ebook versions (.EPUB, .ACSM and .PDF) and Kindle Ebook versions (.MOBI).
I post all of my reviews on this website, and Amazon.com, Goodreads.com, BarnesandNoble.com, Facebook.com, Google+, Instagram, Bloglovin’.com, and Twitter.
When reviewing a book, I consider all elements of the story such as overall story-line/plot, writing style and structure, character development and descriptive/creative writing involved. Depending on the book, my reviews will focus on one aspect more than an another. In my reviews I take into account how effectively the author can grab my attention and if they can hold it, if I am able to connect with the characters, and if the story can affect my emotions at all.
Genre of books that I will read and review: I am open to any genre, except erotica. Though these are generally the books I accept, I am not opposed to branching out into something different. If your book doesn’t fall into one of these categories but you think I may enjoy it, feel free to email me.
Please feel free to email me for reviews or for any questions/comments.
Star Rating Guide:
My star ratings are very complicated guys, so bear with me (sarcasm). I might include half star ratings in a review, which plainly means that I was on the fence when it came to deciding.
– Could barely read it, DO NOT recommend.
– Most aspects were negative, not recommended.
– More positives than negatives, recommended.
– Great and enjoyable read, highly recommenced!
– DIE HARD AMAZING, YOU HAVE TO READ THIS!
