My rating system:

Five stars: Excellent book. I will probably read this again.
Four stars: Very good book. I would like to read more from this author.
Three stars: Good book, but not something I would recommend reading.
Two stars: Below average expectations for a published book. May have major editing issues.
One star: Major issues.

Only four and five star books will have reviews posted.


I am willing to review books, including self-published books. Reviews of the best will be posted here, with shorter summaries on LibraryThing and Goodreads. I'm looking for family friendly material. I love picture books, science fiction, fantasy, happy families and fairy tales, but not romance or war. Reviews are free, but only written if I like the book and it is a good fit for the website.

✔  Family friendly
✔  Clean language

X  Graphic or R-rated content
X  Romance
X  Horror
X  Self-help
X  Amazon Unlimited

I am not accepting Amazon unlimited or Amazon exclusive books at the moment, mostly because it can be a floodgate of submissions, and as much as I would love to read more, this is what I have time for now. There are other websites that focus solely on Amazon publications. (There will be some on here that I received pre-publication). Also a going a little slow on novels right now (Spring 2021) due to school, but this is my last semester.

Up-to-date book reviewer directories: Indies TodayThe Indie View, and Melanie Rockett.

My opinions are my own, and if I am given free books or incentives I will mention that at the end of the post.
