Since most bloggers have a policy clause on their pages when starting to I'm just following their lead.Now lets get started. Thank you for considering me as a reviewer.Reading is my most relaxing “squirrel moments" when I am able to escape from my “mommy” reality. Not to mention maybe if the kids see me reading maybe it will encourage them to pick up a book too.

Wishful thinking ---->

First thing first I am not a professional, so please do not expect perfection.  I started this blog because not only do I enjoy reading, but I think in a previous life I was suppose to write. Unfortunately, I don't know many people that like to read the same type of books as myself or read as much as I do. Not to mention, my husband can only endure so much from me blabbing about my current book fix.

 Again, did I mention that I am not a professional and I do not do this as some form of employment. At times, I may find it a tad difficult for me to articulate how I feel or it I could possibly experience about of being verbiage challenged. Some reviews will have more words than others. I honestly do not care for very long reviews. I'm sure its because of my undiagnosed ADD. With that said,  if you're hoping for a lengthy review; I offer my sincerest apologies that I can not provide that for you.

Genres I will read: Contemporary, romance, Rom-Com, Fantasy/ Paranormal, Self- Published, Erotic, New Adult/ Young Adult

Not interested in: History, Non-fiction, Memoirs, Series out of order ( I have this absurd disorder that requires me to know what's going on.), Religious, True Crimes

Reviews will include:

  • Book Cover
  • Book Synopsis
  • Publication Date, Publisher Name,  # Pages
  • My Review
  • Link to where book can be purchased (B&N, Amazon)
  •  links to the authors website, Twitter & Facebook 
At this time, I do not use a rating system. Every book is different and should be treated as such, I rather not attempt to have to keep score. This has caused me at times to dismiss some really good reads.

I accept the following formats:

Published books (Hardback and Paperback)


  • ARC's will not be sold, or given away.
  • I will post my reads here on my blog, Amazon, B&N and Goodreads.  If you would like for me to review your book, please feel free to contact me at shawnasurvey at gmail
  • Considering I do have a world outside of reading and blogging (family, job, dog) I cannot give a guarantee when a review will be posted, but I will try my best. 

Disclaimer: My reviews are my honest opinion, which may include quotes from the text and plot details. I do not accept any form of payment from authors or publishers for reviews.
