I want to start off by saying that if I agreed to review a book, you will receive a review. I don’t withhold reviews because I think your book rating is too low to be beneficial. I believe every review is valuable whether it mentions stars or not or whether it’s a 1 star review or a 5 star review. What you are guaranteed is that it will be a detailed review with pros and cons and my opinion of the book as well as the premise of the book. It will also be an honest review. I also do not accept or ask for payments to review books.  I accept epubs and .mobi formats at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  At the very least, your review will be posted to this website.  I also post reviews to Goodreads on occasion.

What I Review

Let me start off by saying I do not review fiction books written in first person, except for memoirs, which should be written in first person. There are lots of book reviewers who don’t mind the first person perspective. I am not one of them. With that being said, I prefer adult fiction written in third person.  Specific genres include:

  • Book Written from the Bad Guy’s Perspective

  • Crime

  • Dark Fiction

  • Erotica

  • Historical

  • Memoirs

  • Mystery

  • Occult

  • Suspense

  • Thriller

I particularly like books written from the bad guy’s perspective. I was the kid rooting for Gargamel, Dracula, the evil step mother ect. So, if your main character is evil, I want to read that.

What You Shouldn't Send Me

Thre are a few books that I'm not going to like no matter how well they are written.  This doesn't mean that you have a bad book.  It may be a great book, but there are better reviewers other than me if you have one of these.

  • Books Written in First Person
  • Chick Lit
  • Children's Books
  • Coming of Age
  • Graphic Horror
  • Graphic Novels
  • LGBTQQIP2SAA
  • Middle Grade
  • New Adult
  • Non-Fiction
  • Picture Books
  • Poetry
  • Satire or Comedy
  • Short Stories - I have made exceptions for short stories
  • Traditional Romance
  • Young Adult

My Book Rating System

5 Stars– I found the book to be absolutely flawless, intriguing and entertaining. The entire book read extremely smoothly, and I couldn’t find any mistakes, or the mistakes were so small that I overlooked them. I’m at a loss as to figure out why the book isn’t on every bookshelf everywhere.

4 Stars – The book has either mass appeal or cult appeal. It has very few flaws and the premise of the story, characters and plot are extremely good. I’d recommend you to my family and friends.

3 Stars – The book is very much worth the read. I found the story intriguing and entertaining, but I also saw issues with structure and flow. I’d still recommend you to my friends and family.

2 Stars– You have a promising story, but it’s also filled with plot holes, dropped plots, cliches and reads like a second draft. You published this too soon, and you probably need another edit to solidify the book.

1 Star – Shows promise, but it’s in dire need of a developmental editor. The book wasn’t ready for publication, and there’s a lot of work left to be done on it.

No Mention of Stars – I couldn’t decide where the book belonged on the rating system, but I thought it was still good enough to receive a review. You have an audience somewhere, but it probably wasn’t me, and any star rating I would have given it would not precisely fit it.  My estimated rating may have also been vastly lower than what you've already received, and I was unwilling to put a rating in that would ding you.
