Book Reviews

I read a lot. Yes, I have a full time job, am married and have a cat and a dog. But I love to read. Therefore I will blog.

I think one of life’s greatest enjoyments, behind travel, great food, and well, sex, is finding someone who has read the same book you have and discussing it.  I love that thrill when you can argue about a books strengths and weaknesses, plot points and characters.  Or when you can truly recommend a great book.

I hope you will read my reviews and something I say will spark a note with you, and you’ll make a comment so I can have that discussion with you!

DUE TO A LOT OF COMMITMENTS I AM CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING REVIEW REQUESTS

Here are my guidelines:

I try to only read books that I want to read.  If your synopsis doesn’t appeal to me, it would be better for you if I take a pass. 

My favorite genre’s are romance, fantasy, ya, paranormal, fiction, historical, and every once in awhile I’ll throw in a mystery.  

I will write an impartial and honest review.  I prefer to only write a review for a book I consider three stars or above. 

I will let you know if your book did not appeal to me, and will not write a review for my blog.  However, I will post a brief note on Amazon and Goodreads.

  1. Hi Robert! I do accept requests. If you’d like to send me the synopsis I’ll let you know if it’s a book I’d like to read. I try to genres i’m interested in, so that I can give an honest review. My feeling is that if I or any reviewer, really, doesn’t like that genre, they are more apt to not like the book. I usually pick, romance, fantasy, paranormal, women’s fiction, and mysteries.
    Thanks!

  3. Hi Paul, thanks so much for reaching out! I have been setting aside emails and requests for book reviews while I catch up on my commitments as well as read a few novels I have on my own bookshelves. Every once in awhile I go through old emails and notes and pick out a book. I’ll keep your request on file. Thanks for wanting to share your work with me!

  4. I grew up in the Bronx in the 60’s as well, and just reading your prologue brought a flood of memories to heart. I purchased your book i and will get to reading it as soon as I can. I always leave reviews on Amazon and Goodreads and, if there’s another platform you use, let me know.

    My name is M. Quilman. I’d like to tell you about my novel: IN SIX DAYS | A Tale of Family, Religion, and Sabotage, a 90,000-word crime thriller. The book deftly weaves the rage of youth, society’s treatment of the planet, and open interpretation of the bible into a powerful story of conspiracy and adventure.

    Zoe Becker is inside federal prison prepping for a nationally-televised interview. The teenager from Manhattan is accused of masterminding the largest string of eco-terrorism in the country’s history. A throng of supporters outside the prison scream for her release. Others, for her to be locked up for life.

    Months earlier, a wave of attacks ripples across the country. The only clue left at the raid sites: a King of Clubs playing card. As the sabotage grows in size and significance, the country speculates about the message and messenger with rage and veneration.

    When the authorities close in, Zoe finds herself on the run, protecting her loved ones and the dark secret she holds. For the FBI, they must safeguard the country at all costs. The next attack is IN SIX DAYS.

    IN SIX DAYS is available at Cracked Shutter Publishing, Amazon, and other E-book retailers.

    I’d be honored if you would review my book.

    Thanks,
    M.
