Book Reviews

Hey guys and gals!


All the book reviews I post on my blog are for books I'd recommend. I do not post blog reviews for books I've rated less than 3 stars. I try to post all my reviews for 5-star rated books, or books which I believe to be virtually perfect, or perfect enough that I wouldn't want a single thing in them changed. Although I consider myself at times a tough critic, you will find lots of 5-star books below (my favorites).

If you would like your ebook reviewed, I currently accept CONTEMPORARY YA ONLY.
If you have a paper copy, I will review anything that is well edited. I reserve the right to withhold a blog review if I did not like the book. I will still review it on Goodreads, where you can find all my reviews, including the unsavory.
