I love to read and to talk about books. I review many of the books I read. I do not accept any author/publisher submissions for reviews. I do not read or review ARCs. I do not enter any giveaways or contests. I obtain the books I review by purchasing them at the same price they are offered to the general public at the time of purchase. My reviews are intended for the use of my fellow readers. They are not advertising or promotion. They are not beta reads or constructive criticism or editing or advice to the author. My only obligation to the author is to pay the price charged for the book at the time of purchase. My reviews are sometimes critical and I will not stop posting critical reviews just to spare delicate authors' feelings. I am happy to make new friends, but friend requests from authors or promoters who have few or no books (and/or friends) in common with me and write or promote categories I do not read (especially new adult) will be ignored. I used to read more self-published books. After recent meltdowns by self-published authors, I now only read self-published authors I've previously read or who have been recommended to me by fellow readers I trust. I also used to read young adult/new adult books but rarely do so now.
I should have reviewed this right after reading it. It's been about 2 weeks now and I remember that I liked it but I'm not sure why. Except I do recall that there was a good balance between the romance and suspense plots. I may try to come back and edit this if it comes back to me.
In other news I am in the middle of applying to go back and finally finish college (at 53! LOL) and also trying to re-teach myself enough pre-algebra that I can get through a placement test. It has been around 35 years since I took a math class. ... So...
That means I have had little reading and reviewing time. I expect my fun reading time to wax and wane depending on the classes I'm taking. But I will try to keep reviewing as much as I can.
