About the Blog / Review Policies


I’m Caroline.

I like to read.

Who am I? I’m a wife, mother, digital artist, web designer, photographer, and so much more. I’m 28 years old and was born and raised in the Twin Cities in Minnesota.

What type of books do I enjoy reading? Mainly YA. (NA – New Adult included.) I have a soft spot for paranormal romance, but I’m not stuck in it. I’ve loved vampires since as far back as I can remember. At least 2nd grade, possibly earlier. I also enjoy adult romance novels, nothing too smutty though, I’m a YA girl at heart!

Some of my favorite books:
The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling,
The Vampire Academy/Bloodlines Series’ by Richelle Mead,
The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare,
the Meditor series by Meg Cabot,
the 1-800-Missing series by Meg Cabot,
the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer,
the Highlanders series by Karen Marie Moning,
The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins,
the Delirium series by Lauren Oliver,
The MacAulay Bride by Nancy Pirri

Ok, that last one was written by my mom, but that doesn’t make it any less awesome! I truly enjoyed that book.

Want me to Review Your Book?
As I’ve stated many times, I love reading! If you’re an author or a publisher and want me to read your book, go ahead and send me either the whole book (kindle format please!) or a blurb telling me what the book is about.

I can’t promise I’ll review every book that is request of me. Let’s be honest, if you write a slasher/horror book and I read YA romance, am I really your target audience? No. But, if there’s a chance I might like it, send it on over! Check out my other reviews and my Goodreads ratings to see what I like and don’t like.

What if I totally hate your book?
I’m here to be honest. If I can’t finish your book I’m not going to review it or rate it. I will probably mark it on my Goodreads account as “Did Not Finish” with my comments, but I won’t give a low star rating.

If I finished it and still hated it, I’m not going to rip you to shreds. I will point out what I thought was good and what I didn’t care for. I know that writing is hard and I know that reviews and critiques are important for growing in any area of creativity, whether it be writing or photography or something else.

Hey! You work for a publishing company! Are you going to give all of your company’s books 5 stars?
Yes, I work for a publishing company, Melange Books and their YA branch Fire & Ice.
Yes, I will review those books but the same as above applies.

Any other questions I didn’t answer?
Email me! Or post a comment! I’d love to hear from you!
