Upcoming Reviews

Below is a list of the books I’m currently reading. They are listed in no particular order:

All review requests before 03/14/2017 have been approved or rejected already. You can review the list below to see if your request made it onto my TBR. Requests sent after that date are currently being sorted. I tend to sort through review requests in bulk once a week, so be patient, and keep your eye on this last, and your inbox!

I complete my TBR list out of order, so a book’s position on the list can’t be used to determine when a review will be completed. If your book is on this list, it will get read. Sometimes it’s right away (if a book speaks to me) sometimes a great deal of time will pass (if I’m burned out on a particular genre, my first impressions of the writing were sub-par, or I have books with a deadline that must be finished first), but I will get to it. Please have patience and understanding. I read over 100 books a year (two, sometimes three a week) so my book reading time is at a premium. I haven’t forgotten your book. I tend to leave books that I know are going to take me awhile to get through (either because I’m not enjoying them, they’re really long, or they’re part of a longer series that I’m also reading) until I’ve gotten a few books read and queued up for posts ahead of them–that way I can give each book the amount of time it deserves and I don’t make snap judgements.

  1. Hi! I submitted a couple of books on Oct. 3 for you to review, but I haven’t seen them show up here yet. I’m pretty sure I followed all the directions. How long does it typically take for the books to show up on this list? Thanks! 🙂


    • I don’t generally reply to review requests directly–as it says on my review policy/faqs–because I’m usually spammed requests by publishing houses who don’t actually look for an answer, so I apologize for not speaking with you previously! My reading list is usually updated within 24-48 hours of receiving a request unless I reject it. I chose to reject your request because while I do occasionally read erotica, it’s not one of my favorite genres, and right now I have a very large amount of requests coming in, and very little time to read (I’m leaving on vacation in two days until near the end of October​). When I find more time I may go ahead and add them to my reading list at a later date since you’ve sent me the files already, but not for the immediate few weeks.


  2. Hi.

    Great articles and your reviews capture the good and bad parts of a story. I love that you are not afraid to say when a book is not well written.

    Do you ever accept books before they’re published? I’m working on editing my first book and although one friend thinks its ready for self-publication I’m not sure and I keep trying to make it “perfect.”

    Please let me know if you are willing to review it as I would appreciate your honesty.


  3. Since you have been posting many good ideas for improving novels can you talk about punctuation along with strong words versus weak words. I think that would be helpful, at least for me and I’m sure others too.


    • 😄 I just took off the ones that i have sitting on my shelf in paper-copy to clear things out a little. all the ones i’ve been asked to review and have as an e-book are still up 🙂 and I updated the list with a few more I got over the week.


        • naw still working on it, it’s just been a crazy week. Really super busy with real life stuff (including two birthday parties this weekend -___-) so I got behind, but I read a book or two a day, so it’s not that hard to catch up when there’s a weekend I don’t post on.


          • Haha. Well that’s fair enough. What are buffers for if you can’t use them to save yourself over busy weeks huh? All I’d say is if you want to do the 4 weeks with no distractions (and presumably have me on hand for opinions?) sooner is safer than later 🙂


    • hahaha thank you sissy! geez i haven’t talked to you in forever. I tried to get on hamachi and see if you were on here and there but for some reason it won’t connect to you, and I don’t know what other messengers you get on!


  4. I saw a book on itunes today that I want to read but I can’t because I don’t have a nook or kindle or anything to read it on. T.T maybe you would want to though. it’s called ‘a tale for the time being’ by Ruth Ozeki it’s not romance but it still sounds interesting. look it up~
