Review Policy

As much as I love reading, I’m extremely particular about the books I will be spending my money and limited shelving on. I try to review every book I read and you will always get my honest opinion. My reviews will as brief as possible but always concise. If I have received a particular book from the author or publisher, it will be stated in review.

My reviews will appear on this blog first, but will eventually all be published on Goodreads as well. I use their 5-star rating system with some slight alterations:

  1. Displeased
  2. Disappointed
  3. OK
  4. Good
  5. Very Good

Although the 5-star rating system isn’t perfect, up until now I’ve tried to stay away from giving .5 stars for the simple reason of uniformity. When Goodreads will allow us to use .5 stars or expand their rating system to 10 stars, I will alter my rating system accordingly.

For publishers & authors

I would love to review your book! An honest review will appear on this blog and Goodreads and/or Amazon. Please contact me at and I will get back to you.

Please note that I will not review self-published books or books that are only available as eBook.
