We started this blog because we loved to talk about books and share our thoughts with our friends.
We would like to make it clear that reviews are subjective. The reviews we write are our own personal feelings - we are honest about how we feel and sometimes this may include things we dislike about a book as well as what we did like. We will always be respectful to the Author and the book. If we give a book a low rating it does not mean we think its a bad book, just that its not our cup of tea.
We also want to make it clear that part of what we do involves forming relationships with authors. This is so we can discuss their books with them, join their blog tours and arrange interviews and giveaways. However we have a responsibility to our readers and we believe that just because we have a relationship with an author or have joined a blog tour or have received an ARC, this should have no effect on how we review their book - we will still review from the heart based on the book content and we hope that the authors can respect that.
We use a 5 star rating system.
Here's our guide:
