Most of the books I review on this site are ones I’ve borrowed from the library or own myself, but I’m more than happy to review advanced copies of books from publishers. When I do, I always make sure to say so in my review (in the form of a disclaimer at the bottom of the post) and I always give my honest opinion, even if I’ve received the book for free (and even if I didn’t like the book).

If you’re looking specifically for family-friendly reads (including cookbooks!), check out my secondary blog,┬áThe Bookish Elf. You’ll find reviews of books that are aimed at children, teens, families and educators. You’ll also find artwork and opinions from my own personal guest blogger, my three-year-old, Magda (she has a lot of opinions).
