I have decided not to post ratings on my blog. This is because I feel that every book has positive and negative aspects. I want my readers to be able to read my review and decide for themselves if the book being reviewed is something that they would enjoy. Giving a book a rating could potentially, in my mind, impede that process. It may make them feel that they already know what I am going to say about the book, so it could impede them from finding a book that they would love that I hated or vice versa. I, as a reader, love that books are subjective. I appreciate that another reader could have completely different feelings about a book than I have, so out of respect for that I do not feel comfortable giving a rating.
There are times I may post a negative review. Understand that this is my honest opinion on the book, but even when I post a negative review I am going to tell you the things that I could see another reader enjoying. This is because I will always try to see the positive of any book read. I always want to try to help you, my readers, understand where you fit with a book. Books are meant to be fun, so total negativity in reviews will never happen here. I will, however, continue to tell you the complete unfiltered truth about anything I review here!
I am very selective with books that I will review from an e-mail request! My preference is for books that are focused on social commentary or romance. I will not review erotica. Otherwise, I am very much open to anything because any book could be mine and my audience's next favorite book!
If you have a book you want to put on my radar please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
