My Review Policy:
As a long time lover of books I decided to start this blog which is dedicated to sharing the love I have for the written word.  I have always felt that after the time and effort it takes for an author to create their work it would be selfish of me not to take a few moments to share my feelings about it.

I read for my own enjoyment.  My reviews are my own thoughts and feelings about the book I have read.  This is not my profession and I do not claim to be a professional reviewer.  I just love books and I love the feeling of being able to tell others about the latest great book I have read.

My review will include:
  • The title of the book
  • The publisher details
  • The summary information and a link to Goodreads
  • Link for purchase information (Amazon US and Amazon UK)
  • My honest review of the book
  • A rating from 1-5

All book reviews are from books that I already own, have borrowed or have been given to me in exchange for an honest review.  I am very much open to requests and I would be happy to read and review books for authors and publishers.  Therefore, if you are a publisher or author and would like me to review a novel, promote your book or post an interview, guest review, etc. please feel free to contact me.  However I must ask that these requests only be made with books in the following genres.
  • Young Adult
  •  New Adult
  • Paranormal / Fantasy
  •  Romance
  • Chick Lit
By accepting or receiving a book, I do not guarantee that it will be read immediately or posted on my blog immediately.  I will try my very best to get it read and reviewed in a timely manner, but understand that I have other books I have committed to reviewing as well. If you have a time frame for when you expect the review to be posted, please let me know as that may influence my decision to accepting your book.  However, if the book is an ARC, I will endeavor to publish the review on or as close to the release date as possible.

I post my reviews at the following locations:
  • Rainy Day Reads (my blog)
  • Goodreads (links to Facebook and Twitter)
  • Amazon US
  • Amazon UK 
  • Shelfari

My Rating System:

I use a 5 star review system and I do not use halves.  I do not believe I have ever given a 1 star review in my life.  I tend to read books that initially appeal to me and in that it would be difficult for me to not enjoy at least something about it.

I loved it! I will not shut up about it and will force all my friends to read it also.

Great book! Highly recommended.

Enjoyable and recommended if you have the time.

Take it or leave it.

Wouldn't recommend it.
