Reviews

I welcome requests and suggestions from authors, publishers, publicists and fellow bloggers, and I'm always happy to accept advanced readers copies and galleys of books for review.  In return, I promise to make every effort to provide a timely response if I accept your request.  I review all types of books but most YA literature, and in-particular, I'm a sucker for science fiction and fantasy.  I do, however, enjoy teen contemporary and historical fiction.  Please know that my reviews are my own perspective, and  I make every effort to provide a constructive analysis for all ratings.  Please contact me at gnomegrlem@gmail.com with an requests or concerns.  Thank you!!
