Why I blog:
And many to read before I sleep is a blog I started to share my own personal views about books I have read.  The main reason I choose to blog is that many of my friends had been asking for recommendations and I figured a blog would be the best way to share my opinions.  This site is supposed to be a fun and a creative outlet for me to share my love of the written word. Even though I have not been blogging long, I do try to be honest with my reviews.  

What I review:  
Primarily I will attempt to review YA Fiction whether it be fantasy, sci-fi, dystopian, romance, paranormal, mystery, Steampunk, contemporary, period, etc. 
At this time I will not be accepting non-fiction, adult fiction of any type, audio books, or self-help books.  E-books will be accepted if I can read the format on my PC or Kindle.*  Self-published books will be accepted on a limited basis.  I will not read and/or critique your work if you are trying to get published, I am not a professional.

So you want to request a review: 
To request a review, you may contact me at: mavso29(at)hotmail(dot)com.  This is my primary e-mail for the blog and is checked regularly.  Please try to provide as much information as possible about the work such as author, genre, a brief summary, or if you need it reviewed by a certain date, so that I can make an informed decision about your request.   I will try my best to respond promptly.

Since I read for entertainment, I may decline submissions if I do not think the subject will interest me to avoid a negative or incomplete review.  Also, if I cannot make the review in a timely matter, I will decline.

Disclosure Statement:
The books I review will be purchased by myself, borrowed, or submitted for review by authors/publishers/publicists at no cost to myself.  If I have been asked to review a book it will be clearly stated in the review for that book. 

I do not accept payment or compensation for sharing my reviews.

As my blog is still in its infancy, I reserve the right to change my policies as I see fit. Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions or concerns.
Thank you for visiting!
