Here’s the thing: I almost always finish a book, even if I don’t like it. Sometimes, the ending of a book will save it for me. I also tend not to sugarcoat my reviews. If I don’t like a book for a particular reason, I will say so. However, I also recognize that others may enjoy the books that I didn’t like, so in general will not engage in book bashing. I realize that authors put themselves out there in writing their books, so I give them props for that.
I try to finish a book within a month it was provided to me. If you require a hard deadline for your review, please let me know. I accept books in Kindle and soft/hardcover format.
I’m drawn to the following genres: young adult, women’s issues, romance, (auto) biographies, and contemporary social issues.
The reviews I post have either been purchased, borrowed, or sent to me via ARCs. I receive no monetary compensation for honest reviews. Requests for reviews can be sent to novelappreciation [at] gmail [dot] com
