As an elementary ed graduate, mom of two boys, and avid reader, I wanted a place to share my thoughts on all of the wonderful (and not-so-wonderful) books that I read.  I am a book reviewer at Goodreads.com and regularly request and review Advanced Reader Copies of new books before they hit the market.

I enjoy reading many genres of books.  I like to test out children’s books on my two boys, who let me know pretty clearly which ones they like or not.  Since taking a Young Adult Literature course in college, I’ve had a huge interest in these exciting, innovative stories.  I also enjoy reading classic literature, historical fiction, suspense/thrillers, Christian fiction and the occasional non-fiction history, religious, or parenting book.

*Books categorized as “ARC” are review copies which I received either from the publisher, author, or other promotional outlet.  I never accept monetary compensation for my reviews, and each review expresses only my own thoughts an opinions on each title.

Questions, comments, cares, or concerns about this blog?  Drop me an email at excellentlibrary@gmail.com

    Our firm, Bostick Communications, distributes press releases via e-mail for our clients who are authors.  These releases make contacts, such as yourself, aware of new books that are available for review.
    We would like to add you to that database to receive releases from our clients. 
    We send out 2 releases per day on the average. You have the opportunity to specify certain genres that you are interested in to reduce the number of releases you receive, if you wish.
    There is no obligation on your part and you may unsubscribe at any time.
    Thank you for your time to consider our service.

    I’ve got a non-fiction relationship evaluation book I was hoping I could interest you in. If you think it might be worth your time, send me an email and I can send you more information. Thanks
