Who I am as a Reader in 500 words or less

Who I am as a Reader

I saw this idea on a list of ideas and had to try it. I will break mine down into sections.

Summary

I’m an avid reader of historical romance that is addicted to books and loves many authors. I like all kinds from Medieval to westerns and from sweet to steamy. I’m never without a book and proudly call myself a modern-day bluestocking. You won’t find spoilers in my reviews and I keep it honest and real.

My Challenges 

Finding the balance between books and life outside my blog. I can’t always accept a book due to my schedule and life can get in the way and cause me to miss a requested date. I hate writing 3 hearts or less reviews, but I have to be honest. Trying to read all the books and getting burnt out. Not taking time to read for fun.

My Missions

It has always been to help authors spread the word about their books. I want to pull people in just enough so they want to read the book themselves. I want to help end the stereotype people believe about romance readers and stop the shame some feel from reading romance. I want to bring attention to authors that dare to be different with their stories. I want to help new authors find their place in the book world and encourage them to keep going. All authors need to be encouraged to keep it up.

My Values

I believe in staying honest without being harsh. I don’t bash books or authors. I’m transparent about what goes on behind the scenes. I don’t believe in approaching others with offers of reviews just to get a book that I want. I will never promote getting a book from a pirate site. I don’t take on books I’m not truly interested or don’t have time for. Every review helps even in a small way good or bad.

Where I See Myself in the Book World

I see myself as a small blogger that will help any author if I can. I’m not perfect and I’m still learning. I have become known for taking on the books other won’t touch whether it be because it’s a new author, darker, handles tough subjects, is diverse, or anything else that isn’t considered the “norm”.

Blurb

Former covert field agent for the Prime Minister, Felicia Adler wants a normal life living as a wealthy widow. Unfortunately, a man from her past won’t allow her this comfort. He’s back to bring havoc into her life and play with her heart just as he’d done four years ago. But her mother’s disappearance forces Felicia to rely on him. If that’s not enough, her spirits are trying to keep her out of danger and help her find love in her life, once again.

Investigative officer for the Metropolitan Police, Sebastian Harrington sails all the way to Italy to find the thief he’s been hunting for over a year now. When he meets her face-to-face, he’s shocked to see the woman who’d stolen his heart and crushed it four years prior. Now he needs to find evidence against her, have her arrested, and transport her back to England to stand trial. If only his heart will allow it.

My Review

If you are looking for a suspenseful read with a touch of paranormal then you will like this one. It just was lacking in the romance department for me. I loved everything surrounding the hunt for her mother and how they bantered back and forth at times. But for a couple that had been so in love four years ago that spark just wasn’t there. They worked great together and I didn’t see the twist about her husband coming. The flashbacks were my favorite and helped with understanding them more. I loved the spirits and how they tried to help.

Felicia has an amazing gift and she regretted what happened four years ago. I really like her and understood why she did what she had to. Her spirits were really trying to help but just didn’t make it clear. She wanted him to understand.

Sebastian wanted his thief, but he had blinders on. His broken heart was controlling him and he wasn’t looking at the big picture for a long time. I couldn’t get into him for the first half of the book but did like him as time went on.

Finding a worthy husband should be simple for three beautiful debutantes in Regency London. But the Somerset sisters have a way of making it delightfully complicated . . .

Violet Somerset has always preferred a library to a ballroom, but to please her grandmother she agreed to one London season. With nothing to show for it but heartbreak, she’s reconciled to spinsterhood. Until a notorious rogue known as the Devil of Dare requests an introduction to her timid, gentle youngest sister, Hyacinth. Violet will do anything to stop the match—even if it means posing as Hyacinth herself . . .

Nicholas Balfour, the Earl of Dare, is enjoying the life of a rake far too much to take a wife. But he must keep his promise to his grandmother.

My Review

A wild ruse and past ghosts will bring these two together and it won’t be a fairytale. There are quite a few ups and downs with them and you may want to knock them both upside the head. But you will love them both in the end. Their first meeting was a confusing mess that led them on an adventure. I knew they were a perfect match when it came to the conversation in the museum and everything afterwards. The way he found out about the ruse was not how I expected and I didn’t see the rest coming. When they finally were happy I wanted to cheer.

Violet is not your average bluestocking with where her interests lay, but that’s what makes her perfect! I loved her from the start because of how different she was and that she wasn’t afraid to ask questions about anything. She almost gave up, but then she had the perfect plan that made me smile and laugh.

Nicholas is not how he appears to others and is haunted by ghosts of his past. As you get to know his story it’s heartbreaking and explains so much about his. When she made him see what the real problem was it was like he was a new man. I loved him from the start because he cared about her right away and didn’t realize it.

I absolutely loved Gibbs in every scene and agreed with her grandmother near the end.

Literary Book Gifts Review: Pride & Prejudice T-Shirt + Special Offer

Literary Book Gifts Review_ Pride & Prejudice Tee Shirt (1)

Today I have something special for you that is book related. I was contacted by Melissa who runs Literary Book Gifts about her shirts and bags recently. As soon as I saw her site I was instantly in love with her designs! It took me a bit to decide on which one I wanted to buy and show off. What better for this blog than a Pride & Prejudice shirt! be sure to scroll down for the special offer!!!

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Price: 💲💲💲 Quality: ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Fit: 😍😍😍😍

I got the XL in Heather Grey and love it! The fit is a little snug, but it does say on the site that they run small and this is the largest women’s size. So I was expecting a snug fit on me. I was worried about the design being stretched across my chest because I’m big busted. It did not stretch or distort one bit on me. The shirt is super soft, well made, and the design is very well printed. The sleeves are the perfect length for me unlike most the do the little cap sleeves that I can’t stand.

The price is a bit on the higher side at $28 for me for one item that I can’t see in person (I’m cheap and on a budget). But I have no problem paying that for this quality shirt and design. I plan to buy more as gifts and for myself.

If you need up to 3XL in women’s or 5XL in men’s thet are available upon request and are being added to the site as soon as possible.

Now the Special Offer!!!

Lord William Addington has been forced into retirement as one of the Prince Regent’s domestic spies. But he still has one case to solve while attending a house party when an adorably feisty lady enters him room in the middle of the night. He now has another delicious mystery on his hands. Why is Lady Roselyn Pennington snooping about?

Rose is sure Lord Addington is a dullard at best and a criminal mastermind at worst. So why does her heart beat so rapidly every time he is near? And why does he rescue when she insists on landing herself into trouble time and again? It’s as though he isn’t the man everyone thinks he is or even the one he claims to be.

My Review

I’m a sucker for anything with spies and this one does not disappoint! You will be on the edge of your seat from the start with this one. There’s an instant spark between them and I was just waiting for them to burst. Their first meeting made it clear that it was going to be an adventure. I loved how this one also brought in the Duke and Duchess of Landon again and answered more about them. I also loved her dad because he clearly wanted her happy and didn’t listen to rumors.

Rose finds trouble everywhere she goes no matter what. I loved her personality from the start and how she didn’t jump to believe rumors. She was determined to get back what was her’s no matter the risks.

Will doesn’t and does have the picture perfect life because he’s cover is so good that most believe it, but also means he’s got a long road ahead of him. I loved him from the start because he was honest as much as possible and was willing to listen to her.

A favorite scene includes a sulute and french doors.

A mystery of stolen antiquities has Kat Holloway setting aside her apron once again for the intrigues of the upper echelons of Victorian London

Priceless artwork has gone missing from the home of a wealthy baronet, and his wife stands to take the blame. When Kat’s employer asks for help in clearing her friend’s name, Kat trades her kitchen for the homes of Mayfair’s wealthiest families.
Soon antiques are disappearing not only from the extravagant households of connoisseurs and collectors, but from the illustrious British Museum.

As the thefts increase in frequency, Kat calls upon her friend Daniel McAdam, who has already set himself up in a pawnshop on the Strand as a seedy receiver of stolen goods. When a man is murdered in the shop, Kat must use all of her wits to see that the thieves are caught and justice is done.

My Review

Kat and Daniel are back for another nail-biting mystery that you will never figure out. There are mysteries inside mysteries that will keep you guessing. I love seeing favorite characters again and meeting new ones as they all come together to solve everything. Every time I thought I had things figured out something would have me second guessing myself. Be prepared to hold your breath multiple times and ready to cheer at other times. The kiss of romance between them and others just adds to everything.

Kat is using her skills again and finding her self in trouble again. I loved getting to know her a bit more and seeing her bring people together too. She makes friends and helps others that you wouldn’t expect.

Daniel is slowly opening up, but still has a mystery surrounding him. I was so glad that more about him was in this story because it made him more understandable. He will do anything to protect those he cares about.

How My Rating System Works & How I Write Reviews

Add heading (32)

Welcome back!

Lately, I’ve seen a lot of talk about rating systems and reviews. Some don’t understand the process of how someone writes a review and rates a book. So I thought I would explain my process and rating system so you understand me and it may help you with others. Now my Review Policy goes into a lot of detail about what I review and don’t review and how to submit a request. It also explains each heart and kiss meaning. This post is going to elaborate on the ratings and writing of reviews.

My Ratings

I use hearts in place of stars. They mean the same as stars and are just what I prefer to use.  I rate a book on a whole which means that I base it on my overall feeling at the end of the book and how glued to it I was. For example, a book has 4 hearts, but my review looks to you like it should be 5 hearts. There are many reasons it could lose that one heart and usually, it’s in the review as to why. It could be that it was too slow for me, too fast or parts were dragged out. Sometimes it’s because of the hero or heroine just didn’t work for me. At times it can just be as simple as it didn’t leave me wowed, but I still liked it and there’s nothing I can pinpoint to put in the review.

3 heart reviews for me usually have equal positives and negatives in the review. I’m usually split on it where I liked parts but also didn’t like a lot of parts. These tend to be ones that are also affected by my kiss rating, lacking story details, and not liking the hero or heroine for most or all of the story. Too many plot holes without hints of they will be resolved in another book. Many 5 kiss rated books land here if they are mostly love scenes and not enough story for me.

Now my kiss ratings for spice level are going to be different for every reader. What I may consider still on the sweet side others may think it’s too steamy. I use halves at times in my kiss rating because some may be just in between ratings for me. I base my rating on how many love scenes there are, how often they appear and the details in the scenes. These ratings also can affect my heart rating depending on how natural to the story they feel and if they take up too much of the story.

For example, books I give 4 kisses to usually have 3 or more love scenes that are detailed and may have more adult language. The scenes can be close together in books, but they don’t take up pages and don’t take away from the story. They are still natural to the story and characters. 5 kisses usually for me take up too much of the story and the scenes happen too early in a full-length book.

It’s like watching a movie or show and asking myself would I watch it with kids around and would it make my dad uncomfortable. I consider Outlander (the show) to be 4 kisses and it makes my dad squirm and I wouldn’t want kids around for those love scenes. There is full on nudity and nothing is left to the imagination. 3 kisses have nudity but only show from the back and sometimes the side without showing things still. So in a book that would be skimming over details a bit leaving things to the imagination and having 3 or less scenes most of the time.

How I Write My Reviews

When I write reviews I break it into three parts my overall thoughts, the heroine, and the hero. I don’t like to rewrite the blurb or retell the whole story. I try to keep it to the point about what I like without spoilers or going into too much detail. I use the blurb as a guide as to what I can safely mention with more details if needed. My reason is that I want readers to get a taste of what’s in the book with enough detail to keep them guessing. I don’t want to give it all away and a reader not want to read it for themselves because they know what happens. That’s why I say I loved such and such scenes or I didn’t see that coming with whoever. I stay vague so readers will have to read to find out what I’m talking about. If I went into details they would be really long reviews and you wouldn’t have to read the book. I do all that when talking to my brother to organize my thoughts because he’s not going to read the book (and isn’t fully listening) and is being my sounding board.

When I talk about the heroine and hero I talk about their personalities a bit, if I like them, understand them, and some things they do. I do this because I know there are certain types that readers like and don’t like and like to know before buying a book. If a heroine is strong and bold I will talk about that. Same goes for heroes that are misunderstood and come off one way, but change. I don’t go into full details on them but hint at things.

I sometimes add a section about other characters that I loved. How I hope to see them again or wished to have an ending to their story.

I also will include trigger warnings if there is something in great detail and a big part of the story. When I do trigger warnings I still try to avoid spoilers, but I have to mention the specific trigger. I will sometimes praise an authors way of handling a topic if they didn’t use it as an add-in or didn’t ignore the effects it can have. Using it an add-in or treating it as nothing will lower my rating and be mentioned in the review.

I will also praise being historical accurate on things that many don’t even though I understand the reasons for not being accurate with some things. I don’t point out inaccuracies or let them affect my rating unless they are really bad (using modern slag like cool or modern clothing etc).

If you ever have a question about something in a review of mine feel free to ask me by commenting or contacting me.

Where Have I Been & Amazon Troubles

Add heading (28)

Where have I been? I know that’s what you have been wondering for the past week. If you’re not friends with me on FB then you have been wondering why no reviews suddenly. I got hit with a bad summer cold that wore me out and I couldn’t read. I’m talking horrible sore throat for days followed by a bad cough and congestion after that. My mom was hit with Strep so there was the worry about me having that too. I just started to really feel better a couple of days ago, but wanted to give myself a good amount of time to rest.

I had planned to read yesterday and last night for a review today. But I was woken up at 7am yesterday to my mom taking my brother to the ER. He had gotten hit with this cold too, but he got a nosebleed that would not stop and wasn’t a little one. Good news is it was nothing serious but took almost two hours to stop it and most likely due to a sinus infection. The focus was on him for the day and making sure he was okay.

I will have a review for you on Friday.

Now my Amazon troubles. In short, I’ve been banned from reviewing on Amazon. This happened at the same time that I got sick so I’ve been dealing with that too. I contacted them three times before I heard back about why all my reviews were gone and why I couldn’t post any. I was told that elements of my account indicated that I have a relationship to sellers, publishers, and other reviewers. Or that I received compensation for my reviews or requested free or discounted products in exchange for reviews.

Do I have a relationship with these people? Not in the sense of being a close friend or family member. I’ve never met a single one in person. I’m a fan, reader, and blogger. My reviews show that I read the books and aren’t always 4 and 5 star reviews so they are honest too. I have bought many of the books and products I’ve reviewed on my own because I wanted them. Not because I was asked to review them.

Am I compensated for my reviews? No. I would never take payment for a review. I am given books to review, but I voluntarily review them. They are honest reviews which means authors don’t expect glowing reviews just because they gave me the books. The only money I make is as an affiliate and that is very little ( a few cents at a time). That’s not for reviews and is just links I post for things I love.

Have I requested free or discounted products in exchange for reviews? No. I know some bloggers will approach authors and publishers for books they want to read. But I don’t do that as I don’t feel its right to do. If I want to read a book I will buy it if there hasn’t been an opportunity to review through a tour, street team, or author asking me if I want to read it. I do have on my blog that if an author submits a book they need to provide a copy. This is standard for bloggers as we can’t possibly afford to buy every book and we usually buy the ones we love.

Series: Craven House

Release Date: June 26, 2018

WAGERS GO AWRY

Payton Samuels has always known she wants more out of life than being the youngest daughter of the ton’s most disreputable family. While her siblings are content to bet their future happiness on marriage, Payton learned early on from her mother that love is fleeting and leads only to disappointment. She’s got a different plan: she’ll work as a governess for Baron Ashford’s children, but only long enough to win her fortune at one of his infamous masked gaming parties. When she loses big, Payton sees her chance at an independent life go up in flames—until Lord Ashford surprises her by paying her debts.

WHEN LOVE IS IN THE CARDS.

Since the tragic death of his wife, Damon Kinder, Lord Ashford, has been a man made of ice. His determination to never be hurt by love again runs so deep that he can’t even connect with his children. When they quickly take to Payton, he thinks he’s found a solution: she’ll give them the affection and support he can’t. As he spends more time around Payton, his heart begins to defrost, and he can’t stop thinking about the captivating governess.

But every seasoned gambler knows that eventually, luck runs out. Can two souls so burned by past loves forge a new future together?

My Review:  My Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤ Spice Level: 💋

I think this is my favorite in this series! A man of ice just needs a little melting and Payton is just the warm heart that can do. You know when children are involved that its going to be a fun time. I was hooked from the start with her in the closet and couldn’t wait to see what she did. The spark between them will leave you breathless and so will the words between them at times. Theirs is an intense story from his heartbreak and protecting her to her gambling and the fight in her.

Payton has her eyes on a better path, but she just doesn’t know the end is so close. She will win you over right away with how she doesn’t hold back and loves the children. I loved when she realized that she had found the right path.

Damon is a shattered man that thinks he is protecting his kids and himself by being a man of ice. Don’t be fooled by him at first because he will melt your heart once you hear his story and get to know him. I loved when he opened his heart again even if he didn’t know it.

I can only imagine what these children will be like when they are older.
