Review Requests

I, as the blogger/reader have the right to refuse any requests.

I really enjoy reading a good book and the only thing better is telling others about it.  I offer this up to any authors who would like an honest review in exchange for a copy of the book.  With that being said, I will not review a book I don’t think I’m going to like, and if I get 25% (or so) through and do not like it, I will probably send you an email to make sure you want me to continue with my review.  

I don’t like giving under 3 stars unless I’ve talked to the author first.

A lot of authors either skip over this page or never see it all.


I will read every email that is sent to me, but I will not be replying to non-audiobook review requests anymore unless I want to take the book.

I offer a few different options for reviews.

Due to my new work schedule, I am no longer taking non-audiobook requests.  Unfortunately, I do not have the time to give your book the read that it deserves.  There are a few cases in which I will consider taking the book.  Please email me for more details.

Expedited Reviews

If you cannot tell yet by looking at my page, I have very specific genres that I really enjoy reading more than others, those include
(usually in this order):



Science Fiction



Entertainment/Comedian Memoir

As of right now, my review window is more than 3 months out, but I will review books in an order that makes sense to me.  I still do this for free and will get burned out if I have to read a book by a certain time. This means I do not always review books in the order that I get them.  I try to be fair to everyone but it’s had to read the same types of books back-to-back-to-back.

I will post my reviews to:

Audible (if an audiobook), Amazon, Goodreads, and any other outlets you would like.
