My Profile!

Hey y'all, Steph from Reviewer X has posted a profile of, guess who...ME!! Please go check it out


and leave a comment there to thank Steph for her awesome idea :D

On another topic, I am going to have a lot more reviews posted because school is almost out for me. And since finals will be a breeze and homework is almost nonexistent now, I have much more time to catch up on my reading. Thus, much more reviews.

Read the interview :)

I'm always curious to hear people's stories of how they started receiving free books. Did you go to the publishers/authors, or did they come to you? How did it all start and how does it work for you currently?

A few years ago a author asked me to review her book but besides that I've gotten most of my free books from Library Thing's Early Reviewer Program.

I feel like I haven't heard much how it works for people, I'd love to learn about it!

Hey Alea,

I originally started with several publisher's reviewing programs, and now, sometimes authors contact me to review their books.

Yay for your reviewer profile!!

Also, for Alea, it's gone back and forth for me. I started out asking authors for books, but usually, I just got books from the library (my local library was really good about getting new teen releases) and reviewed them. Then, as I got more popular, authors would contact me to review their books, and now it's gone back to me asking them, unless I had been chatting with them a lot. I've also chatted with some publicists, who I keep in touch with and ask them for books, or sometimes they'll send me an email if they have an ARC that they're excited about releasing.

I know the question wasn't for me, but I figured you'd like more than one perspective. :)

Thanks for the insight guys! I'd love to hear lots on this! It seems it can go lots of way and there isn't a tried and true method, not like i don't have piles of books i should be reading already... i just find the whole thing so interesting!
