Dear Publishers and/or Authors, 

I will be extremely honored to be contacted about novel's you would like me to review! whether they are ARC's, or novels that have been out for a few days, or a year. I do read both E-books and physical copies, physical copies more often. 
I will say this! I am not a professional, at all! But I am a girl who just genuinely loves reading!

If you need to contact me, you can contact me at, (Only E-mail me with that e-mail if it is about reviewing! thank you!). thanks, Luv. 

Genre that I read: 
Honestly I read everything YA and I know that I will eventually read a little new adult, but right now I'm doing my best to go off of my TBR pile. which is mainly YA. 
but I read all genre's horror, fantasy, dystopia, contemporary, contemporary romance, mystery, etc. 

I will also read self-published books! <3

Genre's I do not read: 
Non-fiction! I'm sorry ,but non-fiction is only when I'm in school and HAVE to read it. It just isn't something that I enjoy much :/ 

Promo Opportunities:
I will host giveaway's and Interviews! And I would also LOVE to be apart of promo-blog-tours! 

That is all! I hope my Review Policy doesn't sound dumb in any way shape or form!

My Bookish Peeves

I don't like to think of these as 'pet peeves' they are more like my 'BOOK LAW' you break one . . . I'll put you in my book jail. Spend a night there, you won't EVER do it again ;P

so my first Book Law is -

  1. When you start a book you have to finish it. NO MATTER WHAT! (even if it's really boring and slow)
  2. Never EVER EVER EVER dog-ear my books. you go do whatever you want to yours but NEVER do it to mine. 
  3. Do not ask to borrow my book, because the answer is most likely going to be "No . . . MY PRECIOUS" *hisses while guarding my books* 
  4. Do not ever highlight or draw in my books, just no. 
    1. NO BENDING COVERS! I don't like it! I just dont! 
  5. treat my books as if they are my children. "My precious" *rubs face against books*
  6. If you do not like the book, then give it an honest review, do not give it five stars when you think it deserves less but don't want your friends knowing you didn't like the book (LUCKILY that hasn't happened yet, I've loved every book so far! <3) 
  7. No eating messy foods while holding/reading a book. 
  8. If I am reading do NOT come bother me, you see a book in my hands . . . it's a sign saying "Turn around! DO NOT DISTURB! READING!" (my mom still doesn't understand that . . . ) 

I have a feeling I'm missing a few but that's my BOOKISH PEEVES/ Book Laws. I hope you enjoyed this little post! and below or on my twitter comment to me telling me your Bookish Peeves. I'd love to hear them, Luv <3

LL & A's Monthly Book Tag! (August 2015)

A few people participated in our book tag last month! But here's another one! 
Just in case you don't know, Library Luv and I have started a monthly book tag, and last month the theme was Alice In Wonderland. There is really only one rule . . . you ready? HAVE FUN! 
You can do this tag on any site you want whether it be twitter, a blog, tumblr, etc. Be sure to (in the comments) post your link below! so we can put you in the blog for others to see! or tag either of us on twitter! @sweetypetitti or @splintered_luv

My Tag- 
1- What's your favorite Fairytale?
My favorite fairytale would have to be little mermaid, I've always loved her. And come on, how could you now? 
2- What's your favorite fairytale re-telling? 
That's hard for me to say because there are so many! but I'll list a few here. Unenchanted by Chanda Hahn, Splintered by Anita Grace Howard, Dorothy Must Die by Danielle paige, and The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer! those are all very good novels. 
3- If you could be in any fairytale what would it be? 
The Little Mermaid. 
4- If you were in a fairytale what animal would you want at your side? 
Ever since I read 'The Iron Butterfly' series I have wanted a white horse, so I could name it Faraway, so I would want a white horse. 
5- Who is your favorite fairytale villain?
I really like Maleficent. She's awesome but in Once Upon A Time, I choose the Evil Queen AKA Regina Mills. 
6- What book do you love that has an ugly cover? 
I personally love all my books, and I think they all have lovely covers, but I do know one day I will cross paths with an ugly cover. 
7- What's the last book you bought only because the cover was pretty? 
Witchfall by Victoria Lamb. and turns out, its the second in the series. *facepalm* 
8- Which characters would you like seen together in a novel or fairytale? 
Thorne from the lunar chronicles series by Marissa Meyer and Alyssa from the splintered series by A. G. Howard. 
9- If you were in a fairytale what character from any book would you want to be your companion on your journey?
MORPHEUS from splintered (A. G. Howard) or TEAGUE from Unenchanted (Chanda Hahn) 
10- What's your LEAST favorite fairytale and why? 
Snow White. I don't know why, I just never really liked snow white...She ate an apple from an old woman without hesitation...after the dwarfs told her not too. I just don't get it, and isn't she like 14 in the movie? and she marries? I think she marries prince charming right? I haven't watched snow white and the seven dwarfs for so so so long. 

Well! there is my tag! Have fun and once again, enjoy!
