If you’re interested in having me review your book, please consider the following:

  • I post honest reviews, both positive and negative;
  • I only post my reviews to my blog and Goodreads;
  • I favor fantasy, science fiction, historical fiction, mystery, thrillers, romance, and mythology;
  • I prefer not to read erotica.
  • I don’t read indie-published books unless recommended by a friend;
  • I don’t read non-fiction unless recommended by a friend;
  • I don’t review children’s books;
  • I don’t read series out of order;

Rating System

Here’s how I rate books:

: It’s a new favorite that I’ll reread over and over again! If I don’t already own it, I’ll rush out and buy it!
: I loved it and I’ll reread it. I’ll probably buy it if I don’t already have it on my shelves.
: I enjoyed the story, but it’s missing something. I’m okay checking it out from the library if I read it again.
: It was okay. I probably won’t read it again. If it’s part of a series, I won’t keep reading.
: I hated it. The story, writing, characters, etc or all of it just wasn’t for me.

For any half-star ratings, I couldn’t decide where the book fit. It’s a combination of both star ratings.

Flames System

Here’s how I give out flames:

: No romance. The book may contain innuendo and brief mention of sex in passing.
: Some romance, but the book’s considered another genre. No sex, open- or closed-door, except maybe a brief mention in passing. There may be innuendo.
: Romance. Still no sex, open- or closed-door, except maybe a brief mention in passing. There may be innuendo.
: Romance. Sex isn’t the main focus. Closed-door sex only once.
: Romance. Sex isn’t the main focus. Closed-door sex multiple times.
: Romance. Sex isn’t the main focus. Open-door sex once with no mention of genitalia.
: Romance. Sex isn’t the main focus. Open-door sex multiple times with no mention of genitalia.
: Romance. Sex isn’t the main focus. Open-door sex only once with brief mention of genitalia.
: Romance. Sex isn’t the main focus. Very descriptive open-door sex only once with mention of genitalia.
: Romance. Sex isn’t the main focus. Very descriptive open-door sex multiple times with mention of genitalia.
: Erotica. Sex is the main focus. Very descriptive open-door sex multiple times with mention of genitalia.
