This blog is intended to provide reading ideas and to share my passion for literature. I only write about the books that stand out to me in some way – strong characters, interesting plots, original ideas, smart writing … books that make me think, make me laugh out loud, stay with me long after the last page … books that are worth checking out and giving a try.
Because of the purpose of the blog, Jillicious Readingonly includes positive reviews. There is, of course, a range within the books I “like” – some just have a few redeeming qualities that make them worth a read while others are not-to-be-missed “rock stars.” But, all of the books spotlighted on the blog must have some literary merit and reader appeal.
Because of this, I do not review books by request. I am afraid I would feel obligated to say something positive, and I cannot take the pressure! ???? It would also defeat the purpose of the blog and my original intent. If you have a book you would like me to read, you are welcome to send it to me … but I can’t make any promises. If I do read it and like it, I’ll write about it! But, if I don’t, it won’t appear on the blog.
Complete the contact form if you have a book you’d like to send, but please remember that it may not make it to my “to read” stack and/or to my “blog about” list. Thank you for your understanding. Luckily, there are so many literature enthusiasts and bloggers out there, and together we are all spreading the word, sharing the love for great books, and getting books into the hands of the readers who need them!
