How can I be reviewed on the Sassy Book Lover?
You can submit a book review request by using the form HERE. There is more info about my review policy on that page also. I can not guarantee that your book will be reviewed if submitted due to schedule or other reasons.
How do you pick the books you review?
I am pretty open to most books. If the book is by a favorite author I will read it without even looking to see what it is about. If it is by a new to me author or one that I haven’t read many of their books then the blurb has to catch my interest and/or the title too. It also depends on my mood and what I’m into at that time. I go through phases of reading only westerns or regency and others.
Do you have a blog schedule?
Yes, I do have a schedule. I post at least three times a week. On Monday I post either a writing update or what I am currently reading. On Wednesday I post a new review of a book or sometimes a throwback review if I haven’t finished a book yet. On Friday I post a random post which can be a review, something book related, a get to know me better post or a fur baby post. It all depends on the week and if there is a holiday. Sometimes I only post reviews due to deadlines for reviews and how many I have to review.
Now If I am scheduled for a tour or some other post then I may have a post on a different day of the week or if it’s during my regular schedule then I will post for that instead of what would usually be posted.
What are you writing and will you announce it when done?
I am currently writing a historical western that I post updates about on my blog. I hope to finish by the spring and I will be announcing when it is done. I have been writing stories for years that I have never let anyone read, but this is my first time writing with the purpose of publishing when done.
Do you have a newsletter?
Yes, I do. You can signup HERE.
How fast do you read?
It really depends on the book, but I can usually read 350 pages in three hours. If I’m really into the book I can read faster and if I’m not then it can take longer. I do retain everything I read even though I read so fast. I have had a couple that I read slower because they way they were written required careful reading.
What do you do if you aren’t feeling or don’t like a book?
Usually, if I’m not feeling a book right away I keep reading and something turns me on to it. It is rare for me to not like anything about a book. When I don’t really like a book I still write an honest, but kind review where I point out what I did like and explain it wasn’t for me. I will never say I hate a book or rip it apart in my review because just because I didn’t like it doesn’t mean others won’t. I’ve never given a book lower than three hearts (three is even rare) and only had two that I did not finish and they were long before I started my blog.
When do you read?
I read 99% of the time at night when I go to bed. I’m a night owl and prefer to my comfy bed and Abigail while reading with the tv running in the background for noise. I rarely can read around other people unless I have headphones on.
