Review Requests & Policy

Thank you for taking the time to get acquainted! I'm a full-time work at home Mom, Avid Reader, and Book Blogger with a Master's degree in English Literature and History. I am more than willing to work with Authors, Publishers and Publicists seeking book promotions on a selective basis as my time permits and only if the book itself has been through a professional proofreading/editing process.  I enjoy reading a very wide array of genres and I will consider the following for review here on The Cottage Bookshelf:
  • Cozy Crime Fiction
  • Historical Fiction
  • Inspirational Fiction
  • Mystery And Suspense 
  • Romance (Contemporary, Historical, Inspirational, Romantic Suspense, Western)
  • Women's Fiction
  • I will also review the above in Audiobook formats as well
**Please note, I do not review Erotica or LGBT novels
Review Ratings:
There is really no special formula used here when I rate a book and to keep things simple, I use the same rating system found on GoodReads:
  • Five Stars:              It Was Amazing!
  • Four Stars:              Really Liked It
  • Three Stars:            Liked It
  • Two Stars:              It Was Ok
  • One Star:                Didn't Like It
My reviews can also be found on Good Reads and Amazon
