Welcome to Wishful Endings! I love reading, in case you didn't gather that. ;) My blog is where I talk about books I enjoyed, felt were worth a read, or would recommend. I also love cooking and some other hobbies (like interior design, crafts, music, and sewing) and you'll see me review those types of books occasionally. I will always include content info in my reviews when necessary.
I also enjoy helping publishers and authors promote their books. I work with individual authors on their newsletters, social media, and other projects on a case by case basis. I also offer space for authors and publishers to place an ad for a book sale or other purpose as long as it's a book that doesn't contain mature content. I also enjoy being a tour co-host (with Laura @ Colorimetry) over at Prism Book Tours. If you are interested in setting up a tour, go here. If you are interested in signing up as a tour host, go here.
I have been a book blogger since 2013, have been actively reviewing books since 2009, and have been an avid reader my entire life. I mainly stay in the YA genre, but also enjoy reading Adult, Christian, and LDS Fiction, as well as some occassional LDS Nonfiction. I love romance, contemporary, historical, paranormal, dystopian, sci-fi, fantasy, urban fantasy, and classics.
My ideal is for each book I read to be clean, with limited swearing and sexual content, as I share the books I read with family, friends, and my followers. I also prefer clean covers as this is a family friendly blog. If there is swearing, sexual or violent content in a book, especially more than I feel is necessary, I will state that in my review or will note the book as did not finish (DNF).
You can see my favorite books and authors on my Goodreads page by clicking here and the books I have reviewed on this blog here.
I read between 150 and 250 books each year. I post all the books I read, regardless if I liked them or not, on Goodreads. I usually only post reviews of books I recommend, enjoyed, or thought were well written or worth a read on this blog.
If you would like me to review a book, please contact me via email (below). I am a member of Edelweiss and NetGalley and have a Kindle, so I can review almost any format. I also love hard copies in finished and ARC format as my Kindle does fill up quickly.
I never share ebook ARCs. Ever. I do share and giveaway physical ARCs on my blog on occasion at no profit to myself or anyone else.
UPDATE: I am currently scheduled out three to four months for reviews. To find out more about my review policy, please go here.
