Review Policy

**I have had to take a step back from blogging for the time being and cannot accept any books to review at the moment.  I plan to return to reviewing books in October 2017.  Thank you for your patience.**

As you’ve probably noticed, I review children’s books, along with a smattering of whatever I can read in my own spare time.  I love sharing what I read, and you can rest assured that each and every one of my reviews is my own opinion, not influenced by anybody or any money.  I’d be happy to read and review your book if it falls into any of the following categories

Childrens: specifically picture books for younger kids.  My children are kindergarten age and younger right now, so that’s our preferred age range.

Historical Fiction




Really, I’m happy to try anything EXCEPT romance/erotica.

If you’re interested in sending me a copy of your book for review, you can contact me at

    Hello and thank you for your time.

    My name is Johnny and I am an aspiring author. I hope I have contacted the right person for what I am trying to do.

    I am writing Christian Youth Fiction for nine to twelve year olds and have submitted my first book to a publisher for consideration. I am looking for a reader/reviewer to read the book and give an honest review.

    Please visit my Facebook page Johnny Turner and Apple Blossoms as well as my blog here on WordPress
    for more insight on what I’m trying to accomplish.

    I have already written the second book of this series and have started on the third. If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me at or

    Thank you again for your consideration,

      Hi Johnny,
      I receive most review requests by email at, but you have definitely contacted the right person! Unfortunately, your Apple Blossoms book series is not one of the genres/age ranges we review here. I like to read the children’s books to my two kids, and consider it part of the review process. They are only preschool aged and toddlers though, so middle grade fiction is a bit beyond our capacity at the moment, and it is not a genre that I read on my own time. We do wish you the best of luck in your publishing endeavors!

    Hi Pea Family!

    I saw your site on The Book Review Directory and wondered if you’d like to peruse my book Savvy Stories: Funny Things I Learned From My Daughter. (Humor, nonfiction.)

    Savvy Stories is a collection of funny vignettes occurring between a new dad and his daughter (but done in an intelligent, humorous way) as he learns just how amazing his daughter and all children are.

    I also wrote three illustrated children’s books if that fits better with your goals at this time.

    I’d be happy to provide you a copy in a format of your preference. Let me know.

    Here’s the Amazon link if you want to check it out.

    And my author page on Ammy

    Hi Elizabeth, I saw your blog listed in the Book Review Directory. I blog and write, and noticed that most reviewers work hard reading and writing reviews, but don’t get much traffic for all that work, including myself. Like Ryan Lanz, I’d like to feature your work on my site. Each week I feature a specific genre. If you have a book review for that genre post the link in the comment section. I will visit it and list all the links the next week and on my link page as well. You don’t have to read another book, but publicize a post you’ve already created. Yeah!!! I read that you review biographies. Here is a link for memoirs. is no catch. I’m retired, love to read and blog for fun. Marsha 🙂
