There are times when I sign up to review a book either by the request of an author or as part of a blog tour or promo. I will also post reviews for books that I have purchased. I do not charge for any review or accept favors and/or discounts. My reviews are solely my own opinion and are not based on other reviews.
I do not let other reviews influence my opinion before I read the book. Just because one person does not like a book does not mean I will not. I believe everyone deserves a second opinion. If a book does not strike my fancy and I have already committed to the review then I will be as discreet as possible.
Any images, banners or code used in my posts have been provided by the tour hosts and their logos will also be present in the post. There may also be images that have been used from Google or Goodreads that are used in my reviews that I do not claim as my own.
I try to be as honest and fair as possible with all of my reviews.
