Accepting Books

I guarantee that I will write a review for a book that I accept for review.

I will try my best to read and review a book as soon as I can.  If there is a specific date that you would like me to review a book, please let me know and I will do my best to get it up by the date that you would like the review to be posted.  If not, I could take some time to post a review.  I prefer to have at least three months to review a book.


I will post a review on my Blog, on my Goodreadsand I select/accept certain books to be featured on my Goodreads Bookclub.  I write my reviews in a casual and relaxed manner rather than a formal literary critique.

I will write a fair and honest review.  Therefore, my reviews will not always be positive reviews.  If I do not enjoy a book, I will explain why I did not enjoy it.  I will not simply just say that I didn’t like it and not explain why.  The same goes for if I do not want to finish a book that I have received for review.  I will also state that I did not finish the book and  what page I stopped reading.
