Review Policy

Here at Read To My Heart's Content  I take books very seriously.  I seriously love to read and enjoy many stories, from different genres.  I will accept books from the authors, but I always post my honest opinion.  I also buy books and I still post my honest opinion.  If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

I also have a simple rating system that I will be implementing into my reviews beginning May 1, 2012.

Any book reviews I have done before May 1st. will not  have the "hearts" attached to the review.  This system will be implemented May 1st. 2012.  

If you are an author, publicist, or publisher and you would like to me to review your novel please send all requests to : amysteves{at}gmail{dot}com
Please include in the message:
  • your name
  • title of book
  • length of book
  • Format
  • Genre
  • a brief synaposis
  • and a deadline(if any) for the review to be posted
Time Frame:
Please remember I will review the books in a timely manner but I will be forthcoming if I am behind or backed up already.
Any ARC's I receive will have first priority, especially if their is a deadline given.
I am an avid reader but I am also a full time mommy of four boys, a wife, and a homeschooler too. Please keep this in mind as you choose me for your requests. 

Rating System:

This is one of those times when I am just not into this book at all.  No butterflies, no giggles, nothing. 

This means I personally can't get into this book.  It has some okay moments but it is not grabbing my attention.  However, someone else may love it; just not me.

Three hearts means I liked it!  I found parts of it to be great, other parts not so much.  I liked reading it but I don't really see me keeping it/reading it again.

Four hearts is that I am starting to fall in love with this book.  Or already there.  If in a series, I will read the next books and I will mention it to my friends. 

Five hearts is basically saying, "This is the ONE!"  This is the book that will go on my special keep shelf.  This book will keep squealing about it for a long time and I am pretty much telling everyone I know (and don't know) about this book.
