Review Policy

We are a mother/daughter review team.  This blog was created as a fun way to challenge ourselves to be better people and writers.  Our intent is always to present our honest opinions when giving feedback on anything we read or watch.

We do not accept money in exchange for reviews.  If the opportunity presents, we could accept copies of books, free of charge from authors and publishers in exchange for an honest review. We will clearly indicate if this is the case on each review.  Our reviews are not for sale.

We get our book blurbs from Goodreads, Wattpad or from the author.  We get our movie blurbs from IMDb.

Review Requests:
  • We are excited to read and review books per an author or publisher’s request!
  • Physical and electronic versions are both accepted. 
  • Obviously, we are just starting this book review blog…Hopefully we are asking for the best info.
Please submit a review request by email and have it include the following:

In the Subject line, please state ** BOOK REVIEW REQUEST **

  1. Your name
  2. Title of your book
  3. Genre/Genres
  4. Blurb/Synopsis
  5. Links to your social media accounts
  6. Approximate release date


We are happy to read and review a variety of genres.  We primarily read:

  • Young Adult
  • Paranormal

Casual’s Rating System:

Although the format may be different, we use the same rating system for books and movies.  Please keep in mind we are reviewing books and movies because we want to share the journey of our personal challenge to broaden our minds.  There is no pretense here.  We are two people who love to read, but our intent is to keep this blog more relaxed….Casual, if you will.  Our rating system also reflects our level of enjoyment of each book or flick.
