Updates to The Love, Life and Murder blog

A reader recently asked how I read so many books and the answer is that I find time whenever possible but mostly I read in the early morning and late at night when the kiddo is sleeping. I do read fast, but I don’t read two books a day (I wish!!). I might write a review today but not post it for weeks, it just depends on what else I’m reading at the time and which books I like best.

As a writer myself, I try to be sensitive to authors when reviewing so if I don’t have anything nice to say, I usually wait to post reviews on retail sites until after release week. Another reader suggests my reviews “kind of suck” since I don’t use a rating scale and while I completely disagree, I can admit that I was on the fence about a scale this whole time, so I’ve started using one. Eventually I’ll add it to older reviews in my free time but right now I’m working on a new book so there’s no such thing as free time at the moment.

In the meantime, I try to get my greedy little paws on as many ARCs from my favorite authors as possible and this week in particular I’ve been handsomely rewarded. Not only did a wild ARC appear today to grace me with The Pact, the latest from Max Monroe, an ARC of Jonah Bennett appeared in my kindle during my Tijan binge week. The timing couldn’t be more perfect. I’m super excited to get into these books and can’t decide which to read first. Fingers crossed that the book goddesses bless me with advance copies from other favorites coming soon.

I’m always looking for new-to-me authors so please send suggestions and ARC requests. You’ll get the most out of me with romantic suspense, rom coms, sports and mafia romances. If you’ve enjoyed Go For Broke, please leave reviews on Goodreads and retail sites, you have no idea how much they mean.
