I made it! I wanted to give my blog a little personal touch, so I used Photoshop and a photo of some of my books. I quite like the result! The font is kranky, and it's from Google fonts, I picked it because I used to write everything like that!
What's your favorite genre, author, book?
I think that my favorite genre would have to be fantasy, but I read a wide variety of books. It just happens that most of the ones I really love are fantasy (even if it's just a sub genre). I think that my favorite author would be J.K. Rowling, I know it's so predictable, but she really is the best. Not just her stories, but her writing style is beautiful. I could not possibly begin to pick one favorite book. I do have a favorites shelf on Goodreads though.
Do you make all your own images, and how do you make them?
I try to as often as I can, since this is an original blog, I think it's only fair that I make original images to go with it. I started out using Photoshop, and that is what I used for the banner, I use a lot of different brushes, depending on the image and I know for sure I've used the beautiful Swirls and Flourishes by obsidiandawn. However I recently discovered Canva which is a wonderful site, especially since I am working a lot now and do not have as much time.
Can I be your Goodreads Friend?
Sure! I love new friends on Goodreads! Anyone is welcome to request me and I usually accept everyone! You are welcome to send me recommendations, messages, and invites to your group if you think that I would like the book/group. I do ask, however, that you only request me if you are interested in being my friend, or following my reviews, and not just to promote/advertise your book, group or blog. I am always looking for someone who's reading tastes are incredibly close to mine (with a high number of books in common, and a high comparability percentage) so drop in and see where you stand!
How often do you review books?
I try to review books whenever I finish them, but sometimes I do fall behind because it is hard to write a quality review for every book. Also I always try to remember that behind every book is an author and they deserve the respect of a fair review. That doesn't mean that I won't post a negative review, but I have held reviews from time to time, and I try to be respectful even with a book I really disliked.
What is your reviewing policy?
I love receiving books and try to read each book I receive, if you are an author or publisher that would like to send me a book to review the best way to reach me is at my blog email (Angelarenea9@gmail.com). I love fantasy, young adult, and paranormal. I also really enjoy some mysteries, thrillers, and historical fictions, particularly if they also fall into the first category. I will occasionally read nonfiction, and memoirs particularly if it has to do with the medical field, and sometimes I will read a romance, but it almost always needs to have a subgenre listed above. If you want me to review a book within a certain time, please tell me before sending me the book so that I can determine if I am able to meet your deadline. I can not guarantee that I will enjoy your book, or that it will be a positive review, but I can promise that I will give an honest review, so please do not message me asking for a 5 star review. I will be posting all reviews to this blog, as well as to my Goodreads, and there is a possibility that I will post some or all reviews to Amazon in the future. If there is another site you would like me to post my review to, please let me know upfront.
