What Will I read?

I read all YA and New Adult books for the most part, but do read some Adult Paranormal and contemporary Romance as well as some adult Chicklit, Romance and Mystery/Suspense. My favorite genres of YA/NA books

  • Paranormal Romance
  • Mythology (this is my favorite!)
  • Dystopian
  • Urban Fantasy/Fantasy
  • Mystery
  • Contemporary (another favorite)
  • but I am willing to read other genres if the book interests me. (and most of the time if a romance is included, they will)

All of my reviews are posted here, on my blog, as well as on Goodreads and amazon.

*a note about book series: I will read a book in the middle of the series, but will request that previous books in the series also be provided to me. (even if they can be read as standalones) I prefer to read books in order. 

My Rating System

I reserve the right to give my honest opinion on all books that I review. That being said, I enjoy most of the books I choose to read. Reading is fun for me, so I write my reviews on the way the books make me feel. 3 stars and up mean that I enjoyed the book. Sometimes a 3 or 4 star review won’t necessarily say why I “deducted” stars. My reviews are very subjective, and a lower star normally just means I enjoyed the book a little less than books of a higher rating. If something specific didn’t work for me, I will point that out in my review.

In my reviews, I include my impressions of the plot and characters and parts of the book that I especially enjoyed, as well as my overall feelings on the book or series as a whole. I am a character driven reader, so I need to be able to connect with the characters to enjoy the story.

When Can you expect your review?

Due to the amount of books I receive for review consideration and to real life commitments (I have a full time job!) I cannot guarantee that a review will be posted in a certain amount of time/ or by a certain time. Blog tour commitments will go up on the date scheduled, but all other dates or time frames given for reviews are subject to change at my discretion.

While I cannot always guarantee a review for every book, I do post reviews for most of the books I read and receive for review. If the book is an ARC I will wait to post my review until a few weeks before the release date. However, if you would like me to post my reviews at a certain time, or on any additional websites, please let me know and I am more than happy to accommodate your requests. I will also let you know once a review has been posted. If you would like me to read a book in the middle of a series, I would be happy to, but I will not read a series out of order. (even if the book can stand alone, I prefer to read series in release order.)
Thank you for visiting Book Briefs and considering me to review your book!

*A note about blog tours:* If I am chosen to host a blog tour, that means the tour company has agreed to MY review policy. If I rate a book 3 stars or above that means I enjoyed it and I will post it on my review tour date. All of my reviews are honest, regardless of if it is a tour review or a personal review. If I am going to rate the book 1 or 2 stars I will hold my review until after the tour has ended, and it will be my discretion if/when the review is posted**
