About Me and The Blog

Hi folks!  I’m Cari, and I’ve been a book lover since childhood.  I recently began this blog (and 2 short previous blogs) posting book reviews and book news.  I love a good read (ebooks and paperbacks) and I always keep an eye out for bargain books and freebies.  I post book reviews on the top bestsellers, but I also review lesser known treasures.  Please browse through and see if there’s anything you like the sound of.

My favorite genres are edge-of-your-seat thrillers and witty urban fantasy YA novels.  The USP of this blog, however, is its inclusion of non-fiction (such as biographies), the genre offering the most to learn from.

Sometimes my book reviews are in-depth, but more often I just do a quick-fire round.  I don’t get paid for writing book reviews so you can count on my reviews consisting of solely my honest opinion.  When I haven’t had time to prepare a review, I’ll provide a more general chat about books.  This includes features such as Book Site/App of the Fortnight; Book Reviews Coming Soon, and Author Spotlight.

This is a friendly blog, guests posts are permitted and all comments are welcome.

Happy to welcome you and have you on board!

If you’re an author or publisher and would like me to review a particular book, please allow me 1 week to read the book and produce an honest review.  I would be happy to provide feedback prior to posting the review.  I will accept the following book formats: paperback, epub, mobi, pdf, or awz3.
