I do not receive monetary gains for review copies or reviews in general. I also do not take review requests. All reviews are done for my own interests and for fun. It's a hobby, one I do for free and in my spare time. My reviews, while they probably won't be the most elaborate, refined, and articulate, are  my true opinions and are just a way to talk about books. No money goes into this blog. All books are acquired by my own expenses, on loan, or in ARC form.
