I am currently NOT accepting review copies at this time. I will update this page if that changes in the future. Thank you for stopping by, and email me if you have any further questions.
Thank you for considering me as a possible reviewer for your book(s). I receive quite a few requests for reviews every day, but I do take the time to carefully consider each one before accepting or declining the request. Here is some information you should know before submitting a request to me. I always write honest reviews. What that m eans is that if a book doesn’t work for me, I will say so. I will always be polite and never “bash” an author or a book but I always give my truthful opinion. Please do not ask me to review your book if you are only looking for positive reviews, because I cannot guarantee that. I reserve the right to not finish and/or not review a book that I accept for review. I do review every single book I read; however if I am not enjoying a book after 50-100 pages (depending upon the total length of the book) I will usually abandon said book, which means it will not get reviewed. If you have a particular time frame wherein you’d like the review to be published on my blog, please say so in your original email request. I do have a rough review schedule and it can be tweaked, but it is not fun to receive a book in the mail and then an email a week later asking for the review to be published soon. I will review at my own pace unless otherwise requested. Generally, I am interested in reviewing books within the following genres: Contemporary/Literary Adult fiction Young Adult fiction Women’s fiction Historical fiction Christian fiction Nonfiction related to women’s issues, feminism, faith, politics, world issues, travel, and some memoirs
- Children’s books (books marketed to kids younger than teens)
- Any self published books

Love to send you a copy of collection of short stories, Zen and the Art of Surfing.
have you read “the book thief” & “half broke horses”? didn’t notice on your list of book but thought i’d ask anyway. if not, any interest?
i really enjoy your reviews– so glad i found your website & blog.
Have you read The Glass Castle by jeannette walls, basically an autobiography? Half Broke Horses is about her grandmother. Both were great reads.
Love your book lists, I myself am so tempted to write reviews on my blog as so many books left me captivated, but if your ever interested in great cultural books or books on religion or charity i could give u some great ideas
When you return to accepting books, will you consider podcasts of novels?
I’d be interested to know when you start looking at new books.
I would be honored if you reviewed any of my books! They are all very different from each other and the query letters are listed here:
http://www.booksbysheri.webs.com All are available on amazon.com and ebooks, so they can be read on any computer, ipad/ipod or book reader via Kindle app! Best of all, most of my books are just .99 cents!
I am interested in sending you a query for my realistic teen novel BUZZ when you are again considering. Thanks, Steve
I just stumbled across your blog today and LOVE it! 🙂 Thanks for all the reviews! And you have a very approachable site, which I appreciate!
My first novel (women’s fiction) entitled “Tanned, Toned and Totally Faking It” has been accepted for publication and will be out sometime this year. (Still in the editing process!) I would be honored if you would review it, and will be sure and email you with it’s information when it actually comes out!
Cheers, Whitney 🙂
Love audio books! Just finished Up From Blue and Cutting For Stone – working on Shanghai Girls. So enjoy your blog!
Hey! have you read Zoriam by Taoufik Jazouli. It is such a unique and entertaining book. Have never read anything like it, makes me think this man is genius! It starts off slow with wonderful descriptions. Towards the end everything comes together and my final thought was, I want a second book!!!
I would deeply appreciate it if you would consider reviewing my Amazon bestselling Kindle, Beyond Nostalgia. It has thirty-three 5-star reviews, and I hope you’ll take a peek at them. Thanks fo your consideration.
I am not sure if you want to review a ebook I want to publish called “how to write your ebook.” if you wish contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hey, I’m just always glad to see book readers/reviewers. It means we’re keeping writers alive.
