Review Policy

Favorite books of 2019

Thank you for considering Mid-Life Goddess Books for reviewing your Book. I am new to the reviewing world, but not new to reading Romance. I have read over 700 books in the last 5 years, so it is definitely a passion of mine. Obviously, this Review Policy will be a “work in process” as I gain review experience, but this is what I aspire to provide you for allowing me to read your book.

Where we Post

Book reviews are currently posted on this blog and on Goodreads, Amazon, Instagram, Facebook and NetGalley (if received thru that site via email:

Preferred Genres:

ROMANCE!! Any kind — Contemporary, RomCom, Erotica, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy or Historical. I like Women’s Fiction as long as there is a Romance theme.

Review Ratings

Star ratings from 1 – 5 star scale.

  • 5 Stars — Absolutely FABULOUS read that I could not put down and want everyone to read, too!
  • 4 Stars — Really Great story that I enjoyed thoroughly.
  • 3 Stars — Mediocre to “might be great for other readers” story that didn’t keep me enthralled in the plot or characters.
  • 2 Stars — Too many issues, exhausting theme or super annoying characters — could barely finish.
  • 1 Star — Did not finish.

I will only “socially” post 5 & 4 Star reviews as I really just want to share books that I like and are worth the purchase price for the reader. 3 Star reviews will only be posted on this blog, Goodreads and the source of ARC (Netgalley, etc.) Note — I will include specifically what I did like about the story.

I will not post 1 or 2 Star reviews. Knowing that all readers have different preferences, I am not going to trash any author’s hard work socially. If asked specifically for a “non-rating” reason, I will disclose privately if an ARC was provided.

Formats Accepted

All formats accepted (print, e-books, etc), but print/hard copy is preferred as I like to post personal pictures with quotes using the book as the feature. Check out my pictures thru out this blog site – book photography is another focus that I want to promote.

Picture Policy

Any personal pictures that I take of the books I am reviewing are the sole property of I will always tag authors on the pictures and they are free to use those in any of their social media accounts.


If the review is requested from an author or publisher directly, I will follow-up my review blog post with an email containing the link and a thank you note.
