Review Policy

I typically do not rate books. Instead, I try to give a general idea of what a book is about and let people decide for themselves whether or not they want to read it. I do mention parts I really enjoy or find problematic, but I avoid a numbered rating system because I find them very subjective. A five star read for me might be a one star for someone else. Therefore, I don’t do stars.

I generally try to avoid writing spoilers, but I often pair up “unlikely read-a-likes”. In order to point out connections between books, it is sometimes necessary to include spoilers. When this is the case, I include a spoiler alert warning.

Hypothetically, I am open to all genres. However, I will admit that I do not typically read horror and I only rarely delve into science fiction (although I do love steampunk). My favorite books tend to be contemporary fiction, memoirs, graphic novels, fantasy, or nonfiction books (especially those about food or science). I also enjoy YA and children’s books.

I receive most of my ARCs through NetGalley or Influencer programs hosted by publishers. However, if you would like to contact me to submit a book for review, please fill out the form on the “Contact” page or email me at
