Please note that we are always honest with our reviews and ratings, meaning whether we like your book or not, we will leave a fair assessment for our customers and followers. If the submitted book request is granted a five-star rating, we would also happily review it at and on our social media platforms. When reviewing and rating books, we consider everything from the book’s overall theme, plot, settings, characters, point-of-view, language usage, and genre in which the book falls. Our book reviews are our own opinions and are not affected by the views of others.


In addition, please familiarize yourself with our rating structure as follows:


STAR RATING – Did not finish (DNF). The book could not hold our attention, so that we couldn’t leave an accurate assessment. We will not always review one-star ratings.


2 STAR RATING – Okay. The book leaves much to be desired regarding the overall theme, plot line, and character development. We will not always review two-star ratings.


3 STAR RATING – Good. The overall theme makes sense but is only sometimes enjoyable; the character development needs improvement, the characters could be more likable, or the theme needs to be easier to follow. We will not always review three-star ratings.


4 STAR RATING – Very Good. Enjoyable theme, but a common occurrence is the writing could be more descriptive, or the character development could be better. We will almost always review four-star ratings.


5 STAR RATING – Great! The writing is intricate and precise, the characters are well-developed, the plot is well-thought-out, and the book’s overall theme is enjoyable and complex. We will always review five-star ratings!

We can’t wait to work with you!
