Reviews

Please note that I am entitled to my own opinion and have the right to refuse to review a book. Upon submitting a review request, you acknowledge that you have read and agreed to the terms listed in the review policy. If I accept your request for review, I will post reviews on my blog and my Goodreads account, as well as promoted on my Instagram. My reviews are written in a casual and relaxed manner rather than a formal literary critique.

My reviews are 100% honest and my own opinion. If I did not enjoy a book, I will continue to write a review.I will explain why the book did not work for me, without rude comments towards the author. I never want my reviews to be harmful to anyone in any way, shape, or form. I will state that although I did not enjoy the book, others may. If the book was not finished, I will state why I did not finish it and which page I stopped on.
