How I Review & Rate Books + A Lil’ Bit About Me!

Hey y’all! Welcome to my crazy world! My name is Trisy. I am a stay at home mama to three boys, three cats, my Chihuahua and my hubby. I’m a romance junkie who loves LOVE and a good happy ever after. I love freebies, giveaways, chocolate, coffee, napping, reading and music…not necessarily in that order!😎

2018

So a few points about my reviews.

  • I READ every book that I review, these are my opinions. I receive, read and voluntarily review ARCS (e-books or paperback), I DO NOT receive payment for my reviews!!

  • I try not to regurgitate the gist of the book because I figure you can just read the blurb and I try really hard not to include any spoilers although it may happen!

  • I’m a mom and wife first so I can not leave reviews every single day but my NEW Goodreads goal for 2019 is 120 books so I’ll definitely be reading every day! You can check out my Goodreads Challenge here: Bobo’s Goodreads Challenge 2019!

  • This year, I chose an inspiring PHRASE to keep me on track! Remember Dory from Finding Nemo? That’s right, “Just keep swimming!” Things will get better!

 

 

 

  • I love exclamation points!!😁😁

  • I read/review a wide variety of books in the romance genre, for example: clean, contemporary, paranormal, erotic, romantic suspense, new adult, young adult & LGBT. Please be aware that most of the books I read are for 18 YEARS & UP!😄

  •  I usually book reviews at least TWO to THREE MONTHS in advance however, my husband Mr. A, has been battling pancreatic cancer since last June. He will be having surgery in April/May so I will be unable to take on too many ARCs for awhile. I will try my best to keep this page updated, please be patient with me! 

  • I generally post my reviews on Amazon and Goodreads, occasionally on Bookbub and similar sites. I also post on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!

  • 1 STAR: Well, I probably just couldn’t stand to finish this one (DNF). Books rated less than 3 stars will NOT be posted on the blog because I try to keep a positive vibe around here!😇
