review policy

A quick disclaimer from the start. Any review I post will always be my own fair and honest opinion, and I’ll always try present a thoughtful, multifaceted response, no matter what I thought of the book. I will also give all books reviewed a star rating from 1 through 5.

I will happily review books written for teens, young adults and adults.

I enjoy:

  • Fantasy
  • Science Fiction
  • Literary Fiction
  • Diverse fiction
  • Microhistory
  • Linguistics
  • History
  • Culture
  • and similar

My reviews generally include a synopsis and spoiler-free opinions on things like world building, characters, plot/story, and my rating out of five stars. Sometimes they spark longer, more tangential pieces that might contain spoilers. If so, I’ll mark them as such.

I aim to post reviews as close to publication date as is possible. But life happens, and they may occasionally be delayed.
