Welcome!


 This is ridiculously long and divided into sections. 


When bored one day, I wrote my Reading History
Feel free to read if you are also bored.

On this website I often provide links, references, and pictures to other websites. I cannot guarantee the age level or content of anything they have posted in the past, present, or future.

I love collecting books, bookstamps and bookplates, bookmarks (especially the magnetic variety from Giftrenz), the different covers, book related artwork and pictures, reading statues, you name it. I currently have a little bit of a book buying issue....My To-Be-Read Pile is always growing.

I try to read a variety of genres. I'm a paranormal fan and series junkie!

I'm on Goodreads so much I half live there.

I can't stand literary elitism, genre/book snobbism. Be open to ideas, accept differences in other readers, and don't limit yourself.

My reading tastes are all over the place, from the serious and life-changing stories to the light, quirky ones. Interesting plots are important, but I'm more character-orientated.



How I Review



When reviewing books, all go under some of the basic guidelines -- coherent and interesting plot structure, not boring, not melodramatic, character richness and depth, focus and pacing.

Reviewing becomes individualized when spliced into genre - with horror it would be focusing on gore/violence/creepy level, for romance it would be on uniqueness/character interaction/sexual level more, graphic novels would include viewpoints on artwork and continuity, biographies on in-depth details, etc.

This website does feature adult content since I review many adult books, where the reviews need mentioning on the sexual content for paranormal romance and romance...and for horror and suspense the gore/violence level. For Young Adult books I do mention and warn if there is anything risque in them or any sexual levels (drug abuse, etc.) since that is more applicable for that genre age.



ARCs and books for review



Right now I am not accepting books for review.


Please use the contact me on the website. When accepting ARCs, I will accept ARCs and currently published books, completed or proofs. I accept physical books or e-books available in .mobi and .pdf format. I do not accept audiobooks or another e-book format other than the two listed.

If there is a time limit for the review (such as an ARC before publication date), please be sure to include that in the initial contact message so I can make allowances for the deadline before approving. If for some reason I cannot finish your book, I will contact you and not put up a review or rating if it is not finished. Quotes from my reviews can be used for promotional purposes as long as credit is given.

I am open to interviews, cover reveals, and guest posts.

FTC (Federal Trade Commission) Disclaimer:

If I review a book I have received for free, I do so with an honest review and no monetary exchange. I will note on the review if the book was received from the author in exchange for a review.

Graphics and Website Design



Several graphics have been purchased through image stock companies and the scrapbooking sets through scraporchard.

Genre tags that are in reviews have been purchased from Parajunkee. Special Social Networking Icons - Electric twitter bird from the talented arrioch. Hover image manipulations and coding done for each social graphic was done by me. Social networking icons were available for free use for non-commercial use. Comment link icon from freepik. Thank you! If this changes or if there is an issue, please contact me.
