About This Blog

This blog is not about me but about the books and products I read, test, evaluate, and review online. As a reviewer, I try to be positive, constructive, and truthful without sugar-coating or patronizing, keeping in mind the writer, publicist, publisher, company, or website sends me the book or product to read or evaluate freely, without being required to write a review.

Reviewing is subjective, so bare in mind these are my opinions – yours may be totally different. What I like about a book or product, you may hate and visa versa. Sometimes it is hard to do a review when the book has a plethora of typographical, grammatical, or punctuation errors that could and should have been corrected before publication. I no longer review e-books.

 

Hopefully these blogs will help other readers or consumers when picking a book  to read.or a product to buy. Enjoy!

  1. I am so excited for you to take this step Conny. You are such a fabulous reviewer, your reviews deserve a place to call home. I am afraid to write anything else as this sentence scares me….

    Sometimes it is hard when the book has a plethora of typographical, grammatical or punctuational errors that could and should have been corrected before publication.

    All of the above are not included in my plethora of strong points. 🙂
    Blessings to you Conny and all that you share!
    Noelle

    • Thanks, Noelle ~ you would be very surprised with some of the stuff I read but I won’t hold you accountable for any of your errors (in writing or anything else!). Enjoy the reads!

  2. Hi Conny,

    I saw your comment on LinkedIn. I’m the owner of Write Now Lit Virtual Book Tours. My genre includes Christian, children and authors of clean books. Would you be interested in hosting some of my authors. Take a peak at my website: http://wnlbooktours.com/

    My email info@pauletteharper.com

    • Hi Paulette – I do not host authors but review their works in lieu of receiving books free (no e-books). If you offer free books, please email me a list and let’s see if I am interested in reviewing any of them. Thanks, Conny

  3. Hi Conny,
    Thank you for your kind review of my book, The Hummingbird That Answered My Heart’s Calling. I hope Artemis and Baby put you in touch with your inner hummingbird! 🙂

    Respectfully,
    Noelle Meade-Izzi

  4. Hi Conny
    I am a newbie to writing. I noticed that you have read Joel Rosenberg’s latest, and as my book deals with very similar subjects, I hope you might take the time, and review it. I will be glad to send you the book for free.
    It is on Amazon, and it is called “The Curse of God’s Treasure”.
    I thank you very much.
    Jay Glikman

    Hi Conny,

    Do you take requests to review books? Passion & Purpose: Believing the Church Can Still Change the World is up and we would love to have you review the book!

    • I would love to but at this time I have over 20 books en route to read and review – way too many currently. Sorry, the book sounds interesting. Maybe in a few months.

  6. Oops! I didn’t realise that leaving the link would put such a huge ad-looking image of my book cover on your site. You can delete it if you want.

    • Jennie,

      Thanks for reaching out to me but the topic (France) does not perk my interest at this time. With many books to read and little time, I have to be selective. Thanks for asking and God bless!

  8. Connie, I am trying to post reviews online and I’m not sure how to do this. I have tried at TCBN before and was told I was in the wrong place. How do I do that and how do I take my review with me to other sites? Please help a newbie. Thanks.

    • If your initials are CB, I posted an email to you thru TBCN. You may have posted under the Group CLUB FOR READERS instead of REVIEWS OF READERS. If you have a blog, you post your review there & have to post individually everywhere else. Hope that helps ~ email me privately if you need to connywithay@gmail.com.

  9. Thank you Conny for recommending my blog. I really enjoy your blog and talking with you through emails. So I just now came up with something just for you…

    Conny, I am glad we met, you seem so nice
    I made an apple pie and I saved you a slice.
    There is someone else she goes by Heartfiction
    She is my older sister I forgot to mention
    I know I said older She might say ” Now don’t you start…”
    but I love her bunches and we will never part.
    I love to read your thoughts in your reviews
    You show such depth , not simple like cow go moos….
    This is getting stupid things are rolling from my tongue
    I can hear in my mind this is bad like elephant dung
    I need to stop this silly rhyme
    I will talk to you soon another time :}
