Book Reviews

I love to read, however I am usually very cautious about which books I agree to review. If I don’t think I can give your book a positive review, I will usually stay away from it. Part of this is because I try not to read books I don’t think I will like, and part of it is because as an author myself, I know that bad reviews hurt. Thus, on this page, I want to clearly layout what I look for in the books I review.

Book Submissions

If you would like to submit your book for review, you can use my contact form here or submit your book through the CWWC here.

While I do read some Kindle books, I prefer to read and review print copies. Offering a print copy will increase your chances of your book being accepted for review.

Please note, I only read and review Christian books, and I usually only respond to requests that I am interested it. If you don’t hear from me, it’s probably because I cannot review your book at this time.

Two reasons I don’t accept a book for review are time constraints (I only take on books I have time to read) or I am simply not interested in the book. That could be because it’s not a genre I am interested in, or because it doesn’t come off as well done (poorly written or poorly published). However, most of the time I don’t accept books it is simply because they aren’t something I am interested in.

What books will I absolutely not review?

  • Nonfiction books about miscarriages or infertility (I am so sorry you have struggled with this, my heart breaks for you, but I am not your target audience.)
  • Fantasy books (I only read Fantasy books that I get by mistake, or from authors I follow online, and I never like them. They just aren’t my thing.)
  • Anything risqué (Seriously, don’t even ask. I don’t care how tactfully you have written your scenes, I don’t want to read them.)

What if I agree to review a book that I end up hating? 

I will never give a positive review to a book I don’t like. If possible, I will contact the author directly with my feedback. I prefer to not post reviews for those books, but I will post a negative review at the author’s request.
