Review Policy

Every reviewer has a different approach to reviewing and rating books.  I’m no different that way.  My favorite genres are historical fiction, young adult, classic novels and short fiction.  I also enjoy biographies and try to branch out into other non-fiction when I can.  Lately, I have been reading more mysteries, suspense novels and an occasional romance.

Here’s a quick run-down of my rating system:

5 stars – best of the best
4 stars – excellent
3 stars – very good
2 stars – okay
1 star – didn’t enjoy it

Book Club Mom does not accept ARCs or complimentary editions in exchange for reviews.  I love reading about new titles and emerging authors.  I learn about a lot of exciting books and talented writers by reading other blogs and I have chosen many excellent books this way.  In addition, I have met a wonderful group of writers through my Who’s That Indie Author feature.  I invite anyone who would like to be profiled in this weekly spotlight to email me at

In addition to these profiles, I am working on a new quarterly post called Indie Author Updates, available to any writer who joins my indie author community.

Thanks for visiting and happy reading and writing!
