About Me, My Review Process & Rating System


Hi There!!!!!

My name is Kri, and it was a pleasure meeting you. Thank you for stopping by my blog and reading the little things I have posted. It really means a lot to me you would do that! I am a book reviewer, product reviewer and crafty in my free time. I ghost write for a couple magazines, they know who they are and I like to stay anonymous with the magazine articles. I have been writing reviews for a little over three years and been encourage to start a blog where my reviews are all at among other things as well. Books will be the main focus but there will be other stuff like Poems, Stories, tips and tricks along the way. Not to mention insight into my crazy world!

Every book or product I review gets the elite treatment of a very honest review that is well put together and constructive. I wish to share all these wonderful authors and publishers a bridge between them and their readers.

About Kri

well I am a full-time buyer, member of the chamber of commerce in my County & City, avid craft maker, reader of books, writer of stuff, day trader in stocks and cat mom to two lovely cats. I have a super supportive entrepreneur significant other where we live in Northern Alabama where spaceships lay rest and everyone is a rocket scientist. I am not from this lovely humid place but moved here long ago to be near family at a tough time in my parents life. My favorite thing is a bowl of chips and salsa or popcorn (the kettle one!) with the rain hitting the windows by our fireplace and a good book in my hand as the significant other brings me a warm cup of coffee or tea.

My Review Process

I post all of my reviews on this blog, and Amazon, Goodreads, Barnes and Noble, Pinterest, Facebook, Google+, Instagram, and Twitter.

When reviewing a book, I consider all elements of the story such as overall story-line/plot, writing style and structure, character development and descriptive/creative writing involved. Depending on the book, my reviews will focus on one aspect more than an another. In my reviews I take into account how effectively the author can grab my attention and if they can hold it, if I am able to connect with the characters, and if the story can affect my emotions at all.

If you would like me to review one of your books or a series, please go to my “Contact” section and send me an email. I naturally prefer hard copies, but will gladly accept Nook Ebook versions (.EPUB, .ACSM and .PDF) and Kindle Ebook versions (.MOBI).

Genre of books that I will read and review: Dystopian/Utopian, Fiction, Paranormal, Suspense, Romance (Erotica welcomed), Young adult and Adult Fantasy, Mystery & Thrillers, General Fiction ( Adult), Horror, Humor, Comics & Graphic Novels.

Though these are generally the books I accept, I am not opposed to branching out into something different. If your book doesn’t fall into one of these categories but you think I may enjoy it, feel free to email me.

Please feel free to email me for reviews or for any questions/comments.

Star Rating Guide:

My star ratings are very complicated guys, so bear with me (sarcasm). I might include half star ratings in a review, which plainly means that I was on the fence when it came to deciding.
