The truth about reviewing books for publishers/authors

Hi book lovers. I wanted to talk about something else today. If you’re active on Bookstagram, you will have noticed that I (and a lot of Bookstagrammers with me) receive books for free from publishers and/or authors.

We’ll be going from best to worst, so strap on your seatbelts and enjoy this vampy ride. Beware: lots of spoilers.

Let’s take this relationship to the next level

So, my first blog post. Who would’ve thought that after a year of tragically bad captions on Instagram, I would upgrade to providing you with even longer pieces of text?! I sure as hell wouldn’t have thought that. But I’m glad that I did, because I feel like it was time to take this relationship we have to the next level.
