Hi! Please read this.

Hi all!

I am new to the book review blogging world, so if you have any hints on how to get started (i.e. arrange my page all pretty like other book review blogs), I would really appreciate it!!!

First off, let me introduce myself, my name is Charity Martinez and I just turned the dirty thirty last week. After turning 30, I realized that I needed to do something with my life besides be a mom, a wife, a college student, and all my other duties. I needed to do something I have always wanted to do and that is to review books! I have always liked to read from the time I was 5 years old. My parents tell me that I had a book in my hand everywhere I went and I read at a very high level. Now that I am a mother, I have tried to instill that in my 4 daughters and, as luck would have it, they all LOVE to read as well. Just like mommy, they always have a book with them :). They want to participate in reviewing books, so I am hoping we get a lot of requests for children's books, middle grade books, and YA.

Now on to the blog, I plan on reviewing anything that is thrown my way, okay well not thrown, but y'all know what I mean! My favorite genres are YA, chick lit, contemporary, and anything else that interests me by the blurb on the back of the book. I am a college student taking 15 credit hours so I ask that authors give me between 4-6 weeks to get the review up. As for the reviews my children will be doing, they can literally finish a 300-400 page book in 2 days so their reviews will be going up much faster!

To request that I (or we) review your books, please email us at 5girlsbookreviews@gmail.com. Please be aware that paperbacks are best for us so that we can have them at all times, but we will review books that are PDF, Kindle version and/or Nook version. I look forward to getting my blog up and running and getting some customers.

Thank you and I hope to hear from many authors soon and start getting some fans on my blog!!

Have a nice evening,
