Personal thoughts about the book
Please know that either (or both) of us may be reviewing your book. We will try and post all reviews in a timely manner, but due to time constraints it may be a month or two before the review is posted. When completed, the review will be sent to our Twitter account (@BtweenTheCovers), our Facebook page (Between the Covers Blog), and posted on the respective reviewer's Goodreads profile.
Note: Our reviews are our honest thoughts and opinions about the book. We do not accept payment for our reviews.
