About Me/Review Process/Star Rating

Made with Square InstaPic

Hello Hello!

My name is Jenaca and I am a book reviewer, book blogger and book promoter. I have been at this blog for almost two years now, and I am loving every minute of it. I am here to promote the work of hardworking authors and their amazing and imaginative stories. Though I cannot give every book a 5 star review, I do my best to be as honest and constructive as possible.

A little bit about me:

I am 25 years old and live in Northern California, wine country to be exact. I have an extreme distaste for listing facts about myself, and I am truly in love with irony and sarcasm. I am a nerd to the core and you will most likely find me strutting around in bright colors such as light gray, dark gray, charcoal and black. My choice of clothing consists of heels and gothic/rocker clothing, but I will always be a sucker for a backwards hat and ripped jeans. I am as pale as a very tan ghost and prefer to be covered in order to protect my pale complexion from the sun (I know, I’m living in the wrong state). I dearly love music, but silence is truly golden. Though being wild and crazy comes naturally, I will honestly never get enough of sitting at home with a fuzzy blanket, a great book and a cup of tea.

Reviewing Process for Authors:

If you would like me to review one of your books or a series, please go to my “Contact” section and send me an email. I naturally prefer hard copies, but will gladly accept Nook Ebook versions (.EPUB, .ACSM and .PDF) and Kindle Ebook versions (.MOBI). 

I post all of my reviews on this website, and Amazon.com, Goodreads.com, BarnesandNoble.com, Facebook.com, Google+, Instagram, Bloglovin’.com, and Twitter.

When reviewing a book, I consider all elements of the story such as overall story-line/plot, writing style and structure, character development and descriptive/creative writing involved. Depending on the book, my reviews will focus on one aspect more than an another. In my reviews I take into account how effectively the author can grab my attention and if they can hold it, if I am able to connect with the characters, and if the story can affect my emotions at all.

Genre of books that I will read and review: Young adult and Adult Fantasy, Mystery, Contemporary, Dystopian/Utopian, Fiction, Paranormal, Suspense, Thriller, Romance (no Erotica). Though these are generally the books I accept, I am not opposed to branching out into something different. If your book doesn’t fall into one of these categories but you think I may enjoy it, feel free to email me.

Please feel free to email me for reviews or for any questions/comments.

Star Rating Guide:

My star ratings are very complicated guys, so bear with me (sarcasm). I might include half star ratings in a review, which plainly means that I was on the fence when it came to deciding. 

1-star          – Could barely read it, DO NOT recommend.

2-stars          – Most aspects were negative, not recommended.

3-stars          – More positives than negatives, recommended.

4-stars          – Great and enjoyable read, highly recommenced!

5-stars          – DIE HARD AMAZING, YOU HAVE TO READ THIS!

  12. Hello Jenaca
    I noticed your visit to BooknVolume today and, specifically, your interest in Dark Fey. Might I inquire if you find it intriguing enough to consider reviewing them for me? I do have a review request page on BnV and offer a Free Mobi copy in exchange for an honest review. Should you find yourself interested, and I hope you may be, please do let me know. Either way, it is nice to connect with you and I appreciate you stopping by ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Hi Jenaca: Thanks for visiting and following Bookshelf — written specifically for bibliophiles and curious people like yourself. We read to know that we are not alone; books are so important today — they take us on journeys beyond on our daily experience and help us develop empathy, to discover that we are more alike than we are different. The world would be better off if people read great literature, don’t you think? Cheers, Alex.

  25. You stopped by my blog, deartedandjody, today. I looked at your blog and found a slightly different perspective on editing (in your comments about how you review). Those comments are useful as I am self-editing my first story, Amanda7 while I write the second in what could end up being a series (at least three books). Thank you. I will visit from time to time.

  28. It’s generous of you to post reviews at all the top places – very few readers bother, but getting reviews is important so authors (esp new authors) can find readers, and readers can find good books. ๐Ÿ™‚

  35. Hello: Iโ€™d like to request a review of my book, The LILOE Devotional. Do you accept non-fiction/Christian submissions?
    Amazon Description: The LILOE Devotional is a brand-new 30-day journey from first-time author Derek A. Nicksich. Thirty days of biblical truth, insight, and inspiration will bring a life-changing opportunity for you to experience the LILOE lifestyle. Pronounced (Lee-Low), this five letter acronym for โ€œliving in light of eternityโ€ summarizes the truth that what we believe about tomorrow impacts our today. Each day includes Scripture, devotional thoughts, and practical suggestions for living today in light of our promised tomorrow. This insightful and practical devotional is a perfect daily read for any believer, new or old.
