Thanks for stopping by.

**I’m Moving!!!!

Come see me at my new address: JennyReads.Blog

I’ve cloned the reviews over there already and this site will float away into nothingness on April 5, 2019 **

I am currently accepting books for review.  Here are a few things you might like to know about my blog:

My acceptance of a book does not mean I will love it.  If I do review it, it will be my honest opinion of the book.  I post all of my reviews on Litsy and Amazon and link to them on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest.  You can look at my blog to see the format I follow for all book reviews. Submitting your book to  does not absolutely guarantee anything in return, but I do take all books into serious consideration. 

My rating scale:
I've changed this up a bit. Since I'm in the middle of writing a book myself I've become almost hypersensitive to the star system. So- if I review it here I like it. The only considerations I'll give is whether you should get it from the library or buy it. If you borrow it and love it, you can always buy it. There are tons of great books that you read once and that's it, especially in the nonfiction territory. 

I accept E-books that are compatible with a Kindle as well as actual ARC copies.  I do love a book, book so paper ARCs are my preferred format, as I can then take beautiful pictures and give the books away to my readers. If there is a specific date upon which you need the review to be published, please let me know, and I will work with you as much as I can.

Please keep in mind I am an unpaid hobbyist reviewer as well as a full time homeschooling teacher, writer, elder caregiver, and serial home flipper. None of those gigs pay well. I am an Amazon Influencer and I do receive a small commission from them for items purchased with my link.

The only things I own in excess are books. I’ll tell you whether I think it’s hardcover worthy. In my opinion, there have to be beautiful illustrations or the story has to be re- readable to garner a spot on my permanent shelves. There are lots of books I love and are worth reading. Many of those I read on my Kindle or get paperbacks that I can pass on to others without fear that they won’t return.

Also, I am all about the library. I can’t own all of the books that are worth reading. The library buys them and holds them for me. It’s a lovely arrangement. If I rate a book as library worthy, it’s not a bad thing. Clear as mud?

Please email any questions or requests to

Please note that as a hobbyist I give myself the month's of July and December off and there may few to no reviews posted during those times. Even though I don't get paid, this has turned into almost a full time gig and 8 weeks of vacation is warranted.
