I’m Simone and I like books. I’m a full time blogger living in Los Angeles, CA. I’m also a book reviewer for Publishers Weekly.
A friend of mine once told me that you can’t finish a book until you’ve written about it. This is where I have my bookish thoughts. You’ll find book reviews, recommendations, fun bookish accessories, and thoughts triggered by what I read and see.
I don’t write what you expect to be a “book review.” Rather they are essays on my thoughts and feelings sprung from the story. I’ll include info about the plot, thoughts on the writing style, but you won’t hear me bad mouthing a book because it didn’t fit a genre or my taste. I love diverse reads, science fiction/fantasy, young adult, romance, thrillers, and horror.
I seek out my books by either paying for them, borrowing them from the library, or finding them at book fairs or on the street. If the book is requesting a review from the author or a publisher, I will explicitly state so in the review. I’m not paid for any of my reviews. My opinions on these books are my own and are not influenced by the publisher or author of the book.
You may see affiliate links for books I review. You’re more than welcome to use them for buying books, but please don’t feel obligated to do so 🙂
I’m currently not accepting any books for review in various genres. While I may accept the request, I reserve the right to choose to write a review for your book. Once I leave a review, I’ll promote it on Tumblr and Instagram as well as include it on Goodreads.
I hope you enjoy them all and if you ever have any questions, you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
