I'm really really bad at talking about myself....but if you really want to know ;)
My name is Emily and you can usually see me around the interwebs as Emily aka WilowRaven or just WilowRaven. I'm a 30ish year old girl living in southern New Hampshire. A transplant from the ubber suburbs of New York City (aka Long Island), I'm lucky enough to own my own home which is, not so slowly, being filled to the brim with books.
I love books, movies and my wonderful family. I've been reading my whole life and I can thank my parents for that. Fantasy has got to be my favorite genre but there are a ton of others that I enjoy as well - sci fi, dystopian, paranormal and just about everything in between.
I started this blog in July of 2009 after realizing how many great bloggers there were out there who loved the same things I love! It's been a wonderful experience for me and I'm looking forward to many years blogging about books.
I'm always open to making new friends with fellow bloggers, authors or really anyone else out there who loves to read. Emails are always welcome. You can also find me on Twitter, LibraryThing and Goodreads.
..um...ok, I think that's it! :)
I will accept a book for review if it's something I think I would like. I review Young Adult and Middle Grade fantasy, sci-fi, dystopian, and paranormal novels. Really, just about any fiction book geared towards 8-18 year olds. I would consider some adult fantasy and sci-fi books as well.
I will accept self published or semi-self published books on a limited basis.
I try to read every book I am sent and review every book I read. However, things happen and I cannot guarantee that every book will receive a review. All my reviews are honest - always. Sending me a book for review does not guarantee a positive review. I post reviews here, at Red House Books and also on Goodreads, LibraryThing and Amazon.
Even if I do not like a particular book, I would never dream of bad mouthing or trashing an author in a review. Authors are truly wonderful people to me and even if I do not enjoy a particular book, I realize how much of themselves an author gives when they choose to put pen to paper.
I can be contacted at WilowRaven@gmail.com and I try to reply to every email - even if I'm not interested in what you have to offer. Questions and inquiries are always welcome!
Happy Reading everyone :)
