About me and my review policies
Welcome to my blog. My name is Laura and I love to read books. Ever since I could first read, I’ve never lost my love for the written word and have read thousands of books.
When I’m not reading, I like to watch movies, play with my dog, and laze around the pool. You can often find me at my outdoor office pictured above.
I have to be careful when reading by the pool. I get so into the story I’m reading I end up sunburned with raccoon eyes from my sunglasses. LOL
I’ve been told I have a warped sense of humor and the extraordinary ability to tune everything out when reading a good book or watching a good movie.
I love reviewing books almost as much as reading them. My interest is Horror, PNR, dystopian, thriller/suspense, some romantic suspense, fantasy/YA and science fiction. If a book interests me, I will try most any genre.
I also review children’s books but prefer them as print copies. Especially if they are picture books.
I like print books for review but I do have a kindle that I use so I will sometimes do ebooks. I’m flexible. To contact me about reviews please use this email email@example.com
When I do my review I usually write my own synopsis. Very rarely do I use descriptions provided by book flaps, Goodreads, or Amazon. I like to introduce you to the story in my own words.
I use the 5 Star rating, sometimes wish I could give more!
1 STAR: Would not recommend it.
2 STAR: Finished it but needs work.
3 STAR: Liked it and would recommend it.
4 STAR: Really liked it. Would highly recommend it.
5 STAR: Loved it! Couldn’t get enough. Still thinking about it. Want more now!
I work a full time day job so I usually require 6 to 8 weeks to read and review. Sometimes I can get to it sooner.
I’m not a professional and my reviews are honest.
You can go HERE to view some of my reviews.
If you would like me to review your book, please submit the following information with your request:
Title and genre.
Blurb or synopsis with links.
Whether the review copy is e-book or print.
Let me know about upcoming promotions so I may coincide my review with those dates. If I can’t do my review by that date I may be able to help with the promotional event.
Please specify if you would like to do a giveaway and/or guest post along with the review.
All of this makes it easier for me to decide your book meets my criteria.

Editing and Beta Reading Services
I do some beta reading and editing, mostly for plot holes and grammatical errors. If you need another set of eyes to read your book, please contact me at the email address available above.
Thanks so much,
