PR Friendly/Review Policy - Contact Me

I am PR friendly!

Hi! My name is Lina and I love music, reading, baking, crafting, and giveaways. I have only been blogging for a short time but I love it and am learning more every day! I would absolutely love to review and promote your family-friendly product or company to my blog readers and Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest followers- please contact me at!

I offer product reviews and giveaways to my readers and am open to reviewing pretty much anything family-friendly! Books, food, games, apps, small appliances, services, movies, music, toys - if you can think of it, I'll probably be open to it! Any questions? Just email me!

Family Information
I am 25 and currently live with my parents and the rest of my family. Besides myself and my parents, there are:

-2 girls 18-22
-2 boys 13-16

We love toys, games, books, music, movies, video games, clothes, jewelry, accessories, household items, cleaning supplies, kitchen supplies, food, services, activities, crafts, and almost anything else you can think of!

My reviews will likely include their feedback and experience as well - the more opinions and feedback, the better the review!

I am FTC compliant and follow all proper blogging procedures.

Thanks so much for considering me - I'd love to work with you!

Book Review Policy

I have very eclectic tastes and read almost everything. I always love finding and reading new books! Here's a little information about my reviews:

Genres I enjoy reading:

  • General fiction
  • Chick-Lit
  • YA/Teen
  • Comedy/Humor
  • Memoir/Biography
  • Mystery
  • Crime/Thriller
  • Children's Books
  • Christian Non-Fiction
  • Christian Fiction
  • Food & Cooking

If your book falls outside of these genres, ask me anyway - I may still be interested. Please note: I am not comfortable with adult content. If the book has gratuitous adult content, I will not review the book.

1. I will honestly review every book I read. All reviews will reflect my sincere opinion. I will provide reasons for my opinion and will try to detail what I liked and what I didn't. If I cannot finish the book I will contact you.

2. I do work full-time and take college classes, and so I may take a bit of time to get to your book. Please allow 4 to 12 weeks for me to read and review. It may be sooner, but I will make sure to get to it as soon as I can. I do have many books on my to-read list as it is, but requests will be top priority. If time is an issue, like with ARCs, please make that known in the request and I will do my best to read and review ASAP.

3. Most of my previous reviews have just been feelings and general thoughts, but if you send me your book for review you can expect the following:

  • Author
  • Title
  • Cover art
  • Publisher
  • Publish date
  • Number of pages
  • Genre
  • Age range (if applicable)
  • ISBN
  • Link to Amazon or website of choice
  • Summary/Review
  • 1-5 star rating (1 being low, 5 being high)
  • Any other applicable info: book trailers, movie tie-ins, author/publisher website, etc.

4. I also post reviews at and I can post other places upon request as well. Reviews will also be sent back to you upon completion.

5. ARCs are completely acceptable! I do not own a Nook or Kindle, but I do have a Kindle app on my iPhone, although I prefer paper over electronic any day. :)

6. I do not receive financial compensation for book reviews. I review books and post on this blog for the love of reading. I wish to recommend books to friends, family, and readers, not for money. My reviews will always be honest, so remember that no money was swapped for my review, and money will not be accepted.

7. When asking me to review, please send me the word or page count of the book and a description so I am better able to respond to your request and am able to manage my time properly.

8. Contact Information: Email me at

Thank you!!
