The review content on this blog is my opinion only. The books reviewed here were either borrowed from a library/friend or purchased by me. If an author/publisher provides a complimentary copy for review, I will disclose that information per FTC guidelines. Receiving a copy from an author/publisher bears no influence on my review. I include an image of the cover in my reviews, which I have either received from an author (via a review request or spotlight feature) or it’s linked to an image on Amazon or Goodreads.

It may look like I’m generous in my ratings, but I rarely choose to read books I don’t think I’ll enjoy. For further information about reviews and ratings, check the FAQ.
