THE GIRL BEHIND THE BOOK BLOG
i'm lindsie (aka elle) and I am the blonde in the pics! ^
Hi, everyone! I am Lindsie (everyone calls me Elle though) and I have built and expanded my blog Pretty Little Book Reviews all by myself! :D This means, I am the only one who runs it. The only reviewer. The only promoter here. Etc. I am a thirty something (okay, 31 but I tell everyone 29.1 so shhh) wife and mother and animal lover! I have 6 dogs, a deep obsession with reading everything I can get my hands on, and love coffee almost as much as my husband. (okay, on some days a little more). I am a bit sarcastic, a little bit sassy, but a whole lot classy! I love reading (which is the reason I started this blog) and watching movies (I watch all things horror), and binging on reality tv. Other than this, I am just another normal girl with a slight book obsession (although I do hoard books) and seeker of happily ever afters!
WHY DID I START THIS BLOG?
I decided to start my blog for a few reasons. First, I love keeping track of all the wonderful books I read. I don't want them to simply disappear from my mind right after I read them. So this is a way for me to keep them in my life for a long time coming. The other reason I started this blog is because I want to share my love of reading with fellow book lovers. I love finding new and upcoming releases to share, along with sales and recommendations. Each recommendation I give come from my personal reading experience. I won't recommend books that I haven't read. Finally, I love connecting with new authors. We are living in a "book world" where indie authors are able to finally publish their own books themselves and I truly love working with them and promoting their work! So make sure to stay connected with me and always coming back because I am constantly updating!!
DO YOU ACCEPT REVIEW REQUESTS?
I absolutely do accept review requests! You can find more information on my review policy page here >> REVIEW POLICY.
I don't JUST read new releases. I think it's important to read ALL the books one loves. But I always post new releases. So you will see a myriad of reviews from all sorts of dates (although I do read mostly newer releases). You can also find book sales, book recommendations based on genre, new book releases, upcoming releases, and so much more! The promotional content that appears on my blog comes from authors and those PR and publicity firms. I take part in these promotions to spread the word about new book releases and more!
A LITTLE MORE INFORMATION ABOUT ME & THIS BLOG:
I started my blog in 2015 and have been loving doing it ever since. I am a true book addict and you can always fine me with a book or my kindle in hand. Sometimes I read a book a day (yea, that's how much I love reading). But when I don't have a book in hand I am usually on here blogging or spending time with my family (my husband, son, and 6 doggies).
I love connecting with other book addicts. It's such a breath of fresh air to know that other people love books just as much as I do. So please, always feel free to leave comments (no haters though) and connect with me. You can make a TON of friends in this community! It's so much fun!
My ideal books will have a lovely romance with an HEA that will make me swoon. I am not a huge fan of cliffhangers but can get over them if the book is worth it and I know the next book will be out soon. I like books that make my heart race, books that make me smile, and books that have me laughing out loud. I would have to say that romantic comedies are my absolute favorite, but sweet romances come close. Chick lit books have always been my first true loves, and I have been reading them since I could shop in the adult section of the book store. I don't really care for erotica, but will read them if they also have a nice love story attached. I don't mind dark stories that involve abuse, but I will not tolerate abuse of children or animals. I guess I am a pretty picky reader, but we as readers know what we like and don't like in our books!
