Welcome to Escaping... One Book @ a Time! I'm Tiffany the owner of this blog, an avid reader and author supporter.
Beyond that I am a 30 year old mother of one book loving daughter, and a dog person. I have been blogging since 2012, though I have taken time off and am ready now to get back to business!! Beyond reading I love being outside, photography (I'm not very good but I'm working on it), attempting to be crafty and basically random things to vast to list.
What I Review
I am fairly flexible when it comes to reviews. I read mainly Young Adult but am diverse in genres. I will admit that I do have preferred genres and they normally make top priority/am most likely to accept. These include reads about:
This doesn't mean I don't accept other genres but more that these will be my top priority. This being said I feel that I should mention I have a love for dystopia, fantasy and basically everything between. I am a little picky when it comes to romance, but I am honest and wont agree if I don't think it will be beneficial for the author or myself. I have a serious love for Indie Authors and try my best to ensure that I give as much support as possible to them (I try and host a yearly event dedicated to them!).What I don't read:
Book Request Information
When requesting a review, I like as much information as possible. This means I would like to have the synopsis, the cover and links when considering a book. Unfortunately if I have to go searching for information I normally don't accept the request, sorry.
I am a physical copy girl. Physical copy requests will get top priority, but I know that isn't always possible and also accept e-copies. I have a kindle so I prefer .mobi but can also do pdf and word. Reviews are put in order of when requested, but as stated physical copies may be made a higher priority.
When considering a request I like to know the timeline in which you are looking for the book to be reviewed in. Normally, I do need 1-2 months notice but have been known on occasion to squeeze something in when it's an emergency.
What I post:
I don't normally rate things on my blog. I try and let my reviews speak for themselves. This being said when I post the reviews on Goodreads, Amazon, Chapters and others upon request, I do rate them there. I also try very hard not to agree to read anything I will not like. That being said I will always contact the author before posting something less than 3*. I will not rate above what I feel the book deserves but I will also not post a review that author or book bashes. My reviews are based on what I did/didn't like but I always try to be fair about reviews.
