Review Policy

Please be advised I may not be able to accept every request. You may email me directly: amy (dot) a (dot) risner (at) gmail (dot) com.

All reviews will be my own honest opinions. I format my reviews by giving a brief synopsis then I will discuss what I liked and disliked. I will always rate each book on a 5-star scale, and I will post the review on this blog, Goodreads, and Amazon. Even if I did not enjoy your book, I will always respectfully explain why. Photos of physical books and ARCs will be posted on my social media (Instagram, Twitter) by request, however I will always try my best to post photos to help promote your work.

I accept several genres. I am mostly interested in: Mysteries/thrillers, fantasy, horror, and YA (fantasy, SciFi, thriller).

My 5-Star Rating System:

5 stars: I really loved it. I had fun reading it, I want to discuss it and recommend it to everyone! Even if I had a few problems with the book, overall I loved it very much and will sing my praises!

4 stars: I still loved it, but there may have been a few things that missed the mark for me. I definitely recommend it.

3 stars: A “middle of the road” read. I liked it, but there may have been something missing with the characters, themes, or plot. I would still recommend it.

2 stars: We are getting into “reading slump territory.” This book may not be right for me. Either it had problematic themes or I just wasn’t invested enough in the story.

1 star: I did not like it. I may have found it boring or offensive.
