Review Policy

Book Review Policy (last updated December 2020)


  • I review every book that I finish reading.
  • Reviews are always honest, but not always glowing.
  • I use a 5-star rating system which includes half-star ratings.

    5 stars = I loved the book
    4 stars = I really liked it
    3 stars = It was okay, but I had issues with it
    2 stars = It didn't work well for me
    1 star = (In most cases I'll abandon a book that isn't working for me rather than struggle with it)
  • Reviews are posted on my blog, on GoodReads and on Amazon.Com.  In addition, if a book I've read is an eGalley, I will also post my review on the site that allowed me access to the eGalley.
  • I do not review "self-published books at this time; sorry, and I do not respond to individual review requests unless the book is one that I'm pretty sure I want to read and review no later than 3 months after its pub. date generally. 
  • I do not do Blog Tours or Author Interviews.
Genres That Interest Me
  • Literary Fiction
  • Contemporary Fiction
  • Historical Fiction
  • Mystery/Suspense/Psychological Fiction/Coming of Age
  • Memoirs
  • Cookbooks
  • Children's Books (ages 5-12)
FTC Disclaimer

I am in no way compensated for any reviews of review copies I receive from publishers and authors. I do occasionally receive review copies in return for an honest review.

Thanks for taking the time to read my review policy.
