While I am an author, I am also an avid book reader. It is my hope to share books with other readers to help them decide whether it’s worth adding to their bookshelf or borrowing from the library or skipping altogether. All reviews are my personal opinion. I keep my Goodreads up to date, including what I’m currently reading.
What types of books do you read and review?
I mainly read and review thrillers, mysteries, and horror, however, I also enjoy young adult contemporary, and the occasional science fiction and fantasy. I never read in the same genre while I am drafting.
Do you accept books for reviews? CLOSED FOR REVIEW REQUESTS UNTIL SEPT. 1, 2020
Currently, I review books I select from NetGalley, however, I accept a limited number of books per year through individual requests. If I don’t have time or capacity, it will be posted here. Do not email me requests until after the date I open. Please know I select books to read and review that I am genuinely interested in and see myself enjoying. If I accept a book request, I will guarantee to provide a review in exchange. If you have a release date, I make every effort to meet your deadlines. In addition to my review, every post includes a book cover from Goodreads, a book description, and buy and website links.

I write a review for every book, whether I finish the book or not. See my rating system below. None of my reviews contain spoilers and I write fair reviews. My reviews are my personal opinion, and if I don’t enjoy a book then my review will reflect that.
