Jam-Packed Bookshelf

books, reviews, and lots of stars


Do you have a favorite book you’d like me to read? Okay, I will! Twist my arm, why don’t you? Send me a message, tag me, DM me, whatever. I’m always looking for more books, even if my list is a mile long. If your rec sounds good, I’ll put it on my TBR list with a link to your blog or Instagram.

Would you like to support my book habit? I never charge money for my reviews, but we all know books aren’t free. If you’re feeling generous and want to send me a physical book in the actual mail, it would make my day! I’ll blog about it, post it on Instagram, and shout your praises from the rooftops.

Book Review Policy & Legal

I am currently CLOSED to new books to review, but I do not and cannot accept and respond to every offer. In short, I give preference to horror, thriller, mystery, contemporary, humor, magical realism, and historical fiction titles, but this list is by no means exhaustive. I do not currently accept requests to read nonfiction. I will accept ebooks, audiobooks, and physical copies of ARCs or published works. Self-published, indie, and small-press titles are most welcome!

When requesting a book review, please include the title, a summary, expected release date, a note about potentially triggering themes, and any other pertinent information so I can make an informed decision. Should I accept your request, I will do my best to read and review within six weeks or before the release date if applicable. I will do my best to read and review all accepted books, but I reserve the right to abstain from a review if I do not feel comfortable publicly posting a review of your title. You may or may not be notified of this decision.

My book reviews are written for other readers to help them decide if they would enjoy the title, and as such, some reviews will be negative. I do not guarantee a positive review. This is not promotional space for any author.

Reviews are posted here, Goodreads, and Instagram, but may also be reposted to Twitter and/or Facebook. I only review books that I have actually read cover to cover.

All book reviews are free of charge.

Sharing and republication

My book reviews may be used by any source, so long as the text remains original and retains my authorship. For my own records, please notify me of any sharing, republication, or reprinting.


Since I’m a writer and reviewer, I’m pretty much always online. Feel free to contact me anytime! I’ll probably respond far too quickly.
