Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

My Blog Review Policy

This is my personal blog and my reviews are written and edited by me. It is a hobby and not a profession. I do accept books, ARCs and other items occasionally to review. I receive no compensation for my reviews and they are formed by my honest opinion.

Preferred genres: I will consider reading anything but these are the ones I usually prefer:
Fiction - mystery, suspense/thriller, contemporary romance, chick lit, young adult, children, fantasy, paranormal and anything with a sense of humor is always good.
Some history and nonfiction will also be considered.

Least preferred genres: It depends on the story but generally I don't care for these:
Westerns, sci-fi, religion, business.

Review time frame: I try to read the books in the order I get them unless there is a special request. It usually takes me about two months. I also try to review ARCs as close to the release date as possible. I intend to review everything I receive but I do reserve the right not the review a book should there be a time conflict or other problem. I will do my best to notify you if that's the case. I will be honest and will not be unkind. If I can't finish a book or truly do not like it and am unable to write a review, again, I will do my best to notify you so you can decide if you still would like a review.

Locations: I will place my reviews on my blog, Goodreads and with the publisher and often with LibraryThing, Shelfari, Barnes & Noble. Other sites are possible if you notify me.

- I do not sell ARCs but I may pass them on to family, friends or other bloggers to read, or donate them to my public library unless you would prefer I don't.
- I will consider accepting self published books, audio books and I now accept e-books.
- I would be interested in participating in contests, blog tours and interviews.

I look forward to hearing from you!


  1. Good for you, I'm glad you got this done. Now if we could just get the people who e mail us to read this policy first. I got two requests yesterday to review sci-fi! No, No, No to sci-fi, for me anyway. Yech!

  2. Is it just me or is anyone else getting a lot of request to read PDF's? I had to reply to a few requests saying sorry don't do PDF's.

  3. I saw your post on my site! If you'd like to read my series, I'm happy to send it to you--you don't have to try and win it :)

    Just send me your email addy!
