BEA'S BOOK NOOK "I can't imagine a man really enjoying a book and reading it only once." C. S. Lewis “If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.” ― Oscar Wilde



PLEASE do not gift an ebook unless I've agreed to accept your review request. All such emails will be deleted and no review given.

PLEASE do not send an ebook unless I have agreed to review it. 

If I accept a book for review I will try to review it but it's always possible that the review may not happen for one reason or another. I reserve the right to not publish a review. I reserve the right not to notify person who submitted the request on whether I decide to read their book(s). Sorry, but it's hard enough keeping up with the email.

I'm open to diverse books by diverse authors. 

I read mainly mysteries, romances, urban fantasy, the occasional sci fi or women's fiction, toddler and preschool books, and MG and YA books that are some form of speculative fiction or mysteries. I do not review poetry, memoirs, self help, business books, or text books.

*Please note that I do not read or review books about cancer or where cancer is part of the story.*

IMPORTANT: I post reviews ranging from extremely negative to gushing, and everything in between. I will not pull a review or refrain from posting one because it is negative or because you are unhappy with it. I will not bash an author but will criticize the book.

To request a review, send an email with the following information:

Name of the book
Is it part of a series or a stand alone? If it's part of a series, can it be read as a stand alone?If not, are you able and willing to provide the earlier books if needed?
Link to the book - your site, goodreads, Amazon, etc. Only one link is necessary.
Review format available
Desired time range - I'll attempt to meet your request but we cannot promise to read and review it within that time frame.

I have a Kindle and a Kobo, and also listen to audio.

    Book source disclosure as mandated by The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) on December 1, 2009 and revised in March 2013. These rules state that product reviewed on blogs must include a disclosure as to whether they received the review products for free or received monetary payment and the disclosure must be easy to find and near the product being reviewed.

    Below is a list of the sources from which we receive books. Regardless of the source, all reviews are the honest opinion of the reviewer. We do not accept monetary payment or any other form of payment for any book or other item reviewed.

    All reviews are the true and honest opinion of the individual reviewing the book.

    1) The method of acquiring the book does not have a bearing on the content of the review. Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...

    2) Jax, Bea, and Steph receive free digital galleys from the online galley service, NetGalley.

    3) Bea receives free digital galleys from the online galley service, Edelweiss.

    4) Bea reviews books from her local library.

    5) Jax, Steph, and Bea review books that we paid for personally or were received as a personal gift, and own for our personal reading enjoyment.

    6) Sometimes we receive books from an author or publisher, either in print form or electronic form, for review. No compensation is received by either party and a review is not promised.

    7) Finally, the fine print, lol:  Any links to places to purchase books are provided as a convenience, and do not serve as an endorsement by this blog or by the vendors. All reviews are the true and honest opinion of the individual reviewing the book.
