About


Welcome to Small Review!


About Me and My Blog

I am an American woman in my 30s with a passion for reading and YA fiction. Small Review is my online alias because I review books and, well, I’m a pretty short person. I currently work as the Executive Director over a college library. I have also worked as a librarian and in archiving and editing.

I focus primarily on YA fiction with an emphasis on the paranormal/fantasy and historical, but I also feature some middle grade and adult fiction with cross-over appeal. I started this blog because I love books and wanted to give back something to a community I have gotten so much from.

My goal for this blog is to create a space where YA book lovers can come together over our shared interest, swap book suggestions, and have some fun conversations. I love getting to know fellow book lovers, so please don't feel shy about contacting me or commenting.

I include a lot of links to Amazon.com and Goodreads because those are the sites I personally use the most to browse and buy books. I am not affiliated with either of these sites beyond that.

Publishers, authors, and other bloggers are welcome to contact me with any questions, suggestions, or book recommendations. You can contact me at SmallReview(at)yahoo(dot)com

I am happy to review or promote your book! If you are interested, then please read my Review Policy for details or my Review Index to see my past reviews. I look forward to working with you!


Disclosure:

The books I read come to me through the library, books I buy, contests, authors, and publishers. I do not receive any compensation for the reviews I write. All books I receive are in exchange for only a fair and honest review. You can find my reviews on my blog, Amazon.com, and Goodreads.

  4. Haha, well, first off this year is an abnormally good year for reading. I think that's probably because I read a lot of pretty short books (under 200 pages). I'm also lucky enough to have a job where I can read for a good portion of the time I'm there.

  10. I just found your blog and I see that you are mostly interested in YA. I just self-published my first children's picture book for Kindle on Amazon and though it's not the right age for your blog can you recommend a good blog I could use for my book?

  12. I am so glad that I found your blog! I am starting to get more into the whole blogging thing and your website has made me want to keep going. I love books but I am a senior in high school with pretty terrible writing skills and you give me hope that one day I will have a good blog. Thank you!

It's all about friendly conversation here at Small Review :) I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Be sure to check back again because I do make every effort to reply to your comments here.

Because I am absolutely terrible about following through with blog awards, I can't in good conscience accept any more. Thank you very much for thinking of me though!
