About Me (and review policy)
Hi – I’m Beth. The “dr” is for PhD (not MD) and I live outside of Boston. I have a super husband and two small children and I started this blog in 2009 because I love to read and to share my thoughts on books. I also love hearing about other’s opinions on books and what they are reading, too. I post my personal reviews of what I’m reading (I usually read 1-3 books a week) so that friends and family can see them. I link them to facebook and twitter. I’m happy to have the world at large read them as well – all opinions are my own!
I am also happy to review a book sent to me by a publisher/publicist (but please ask first!). If I get it, I will make every attempt to review it in a timely manner. If I don’t like a book, I don’t finish it, and thus I don’t review it. I generally contact the publicist personally to tell them why I didn’t finish it. If I request it from the publisher (e.g. Net Galley), then I will review it or try to contact the publisher as to why I did not. I prefer Kindle or paper copies as I rarely read books on my laptop. I enjoy Audiobooks, too. My favorite genres are fiction, historical fiction, mystery, psychological thriller, cozies, YA, and Children’s. I also read Romance, Christian/Catholic, cookbooks, and non-fiction. I rarely read violent/graphic content, paranormal, erotica, or anything that could give me nightmares! Just a note — I am an Amazon Associate, which means that if you click on a book through my site and purchase it, I receive a small percentage.
