Rating System & Policy

My Rating System:


I FREAKING LOVE THIS BOOK MORE THAN ANYTHING! A NEW FAVORITE. Close to perfection. I would recommend to anyone and if I don't own a physical copy of the book... I need it now! The writing style, characters, and plot were perfect. This book had no flaws. 

I really liked it. Not perfect, has only minor flaws or things I did not enjoy but overall I really enjoyed the characters and plot. Just not good enough to fit the category of an all-time favorite book. I would still buy a physical copy if I didn't own it. I would recommend it to other readers. I still had a lot of fun reading the book.  
So-so read. Average. There were things I liked and things I didn't like. It was just an average read. Not the worst book that I have ever read but certainly not the best either. I would recommend only to certain people and not to everyone. I had some issues with the plot, characters, or writing style. Don't care to own or not own book.
Ugh! I did not really enjoy the book but I didn't hate the book either. Some aspects of the book really bothered me. The story just fell flat but still intrigued me enough to finish or read. I would not get a print copy. I generally would not recommend it to readers.
WHAT THE HECK?! I did not like this book. I would never buy the book or own my own copy. I do not recommend to anyone. I want to run and scream and throw the book across the room. This book made me very upset. I don't even know how I finished this book! 

Did Not Finish

I couldn't bring myself to finish the book because I really did not like it at all and couldn't stand to read it anymore. Do not care to own or recommend. Basically, I was very bored.


The reviews I post are my own opinions and are written as objectively as possible. If I give a book a negative review it is in no way connected to the author personally. I am not attacking anyone. These are just my honest to god thoughts and opinions. Do not take them personally. Everyone has different tastes and views. 

All books that have been reviewed have been purchased by me or given to me for free by the author/publisher. I will never receive compensation from someone to write a dishonest review. All 5-star books are my personal favorite books. 

I only receive compensation to organize book tours or blitzes and from affiliate links. I have the right to accept or not accept a book to be featured on my blog. Organizing a book tour does not mean the book will receive a positive review. I am simply being paid to advertise your book, create advertising materials, and to organize other blogs/my connections to review your book. All reviews are honest.
However, please note that I do prefer print copies to e-copies, but will read both. For e-copies, Kindle books are preferred. I do not take review requests anymore. I am a mood reader. Please, check out my contact page if you would like to send me your books. I am always accepting book mail. However, I cannot guarantee a review unless you set up a paid tour with me. I love getting book mail. This does not guarantee a review though. However, I still accept all book mail and it may be reviewed if sent. My preferred genre is romance but I will read anything from any genre that sparks my interest. I have the right to turn down a review offer. Please realize, as of now, I have thousands and I mean thousands of unread emails that will never go answered with requests. For this, I am sorry but the amount of bookish emails I get is insane!

I always cross-promote all of my book reviews on Goodreads, Amazon, and Bookbub to help support authors in all of their writing endeavors. 

Business inquiries send emails to: lifeofemilyxoxo@gmail.com

As of now, I only personally request books to review. Please understand. If you want to send me a physical copy you are more than welcome to. However, I cannot guarantee a review. I do accept all paid book tours, blitzes, and promotions.

I also do paid advertisements on the side of my blog. The best way to get in touch with me is via my facebook or twitter page because I have thousands of unread emails.

Book a tour, cover reveals, promotions, or book blitz:

I am currently accepting all book tours, promotions, book blitzes, and cover reveals on my blog for a good discounted $$. I am in contact with many other blogs and have a decent following on social media to promote your books at a good price. Message me for prices and we can work something out. I decided to start charging for promotions since I have gained a decent reader following and many authors have started to contact me about promoting their books. I work very hard on my blog and it's only fair to get compensated for my hard work. This way, I can continue to run my blog and have money to purchase books to review. But also have money for giveaways for my readers. Thank you. I am trying to make something I love my main source of income.

My blog is mainly focused on the romance genre.

Genre's or books I do not accept:

  • science fiction
  • anything math-related
  • sports that do not involve romance
  • cars
  • most fantasy
  • Zombies
  • Werewolves 



  1. Hi Emily.

    I've come to you via Carrie's Reviews.

    I note that you're not accepting books at the moment.

    Are you open to/interested in interviews at present?

    I'm a free verse poet with 2 collections recently released and a third one on the way. I'm a little different to most, I think. The books are:

    Small Town Kid - a free verse memoir of growing up in rural Australia in the 1960s and 70s.

    Devil In The Wind - free verse voices of the victims and survivors of our catastrophic Black Saturday bushfires in Victoria (Australia) in 2009

    Coming later this year is - The New Asylum - a memoir of psychiatry, about my lifelong association with psychiatry from childhood through a 40 year career as a psychiatric nurse. I think it will make an impact.

    I'm happy to send all details and/or review copies if you're interested, but I did wonder about an interview as a way to get some exposure to a new audience.

    My main poetry blog and Author page are Wordpress hosted: https://www.frankprem.wordpress.com is my poetry blog and https://www.FrankPrem.com is my author site.



    1. I would be interested in an interview about the psychiatric memoir :) Go ahead and shoot me an email.
