Review Policy

I love reading and am always interested in finding new authors and books to read and review. Authors and publishers, if you'd like me to review your work, please shoot me an email at gaby317nyc AT gmail DOT com, a t or send me a comment. 

I will review your work on this blog. I will usually post the review on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Powells, Library Thing and Good Reads.  If the book grabs me, I like to let as many people know about it as possible.  Spread the love!

I'm also happy to do interviews, guest posts by authors, and giveaways. 

I have wide range of interests and enjoy all sorts of books. (See the *not* list.)

I enjoy literary fiction of all sorts and am particularly fond of historical fiction and stories of exile or of "multicultural themes."  But I love a good story and a well written book.

Escapist fiction, such as but not limited to: mysteries and detective novels (cozies, thrillers, and police procedurals), young adult novels, fantasy, thrillers, historical fiction, and historical romance.

Nonfiction, such as but not limited to: history, personal finance, law, real estate, business biographies, memoirs, books on education and how people think, personal development, gardening, and some cookbooks.

*Not* interested in: Books with religious messages or about religion unless it's a social science type of analysis;  horror;   I usually don't like books that are unnecessarily gory or excessively brutal, especially when they're just gory for effect and told from the psychopath's point of view.  But some of the thrillers and novels that I've liked have been pretty violent -- it depends largely on execution and whether it fits the plot.

I'll read the book in Kindle format, as a galley, ARC or as a finished copy.  If you'd like further clarification, please let me know. Thanks!

Friends, if you highly recommend a book to read, please let me know. I'm always looking for a good read!
