RatingBooks are rated on a 1-5 scale which is roughly as follows (sometimes .5's will be used if I feel it's appropriate as my opinion lies somewhere between two of these):
1 - I really did not like it/ didn't finish it.
2 - I didn't really like it but got to the end.
3 - I understand why it's a good book and appreciate it for what it is but it's not my cup of tea/ I liked it but would not continue the series/re-read.
4 - I really like it but it didn't blow me away.
5 - Absolutely loved it, it will be going on the favourites shelf.
Occasionally I come across a book for free. If that happens I will always let you know by marking the title with a '*' and stating where/how I received it at the bottom of the post. Even when this happens my review will be honest and I try to not be influenced by the fact I didn't pay for it. That being said, I will sometimes say I think the book is good but it is just not to my taste.
Note to Authors/Publishers:If you would like to send me a copy of a book to review I will gladly accept it, although, as mentioned above, any review will be honest. I read a variety of books although mainly YA, usually either romance, fantasy or coming of age and I have particular interests in history and music. I will accept books from other genres although it should be acknowledged that I may not enjoy them and therefore my review may not be as positive.
Books sent to me will not be read and reviewed within a specific time frame unless requested. A review will be posted although it could be a few months before it is. If you would like a review to be up before the publication date or anything similar please state so.
I have a Kindle Paperwhite e-reader and will accept e-books.
