I work 7 days a week, days a year. I got it from a good friend, who works with authors, and she says that paying for book reviews is unethical, and that no author will do it who is worth anything.

In the beginning, some will do it just to get a few reviews. I hope that this makes sense. I applied with the Contena site and they say that my spot is reserved and that they are full…wow! But, where do I find other places to sign on to be a book reviewer? There is only one place on your list that I qualify for, and since I am an avid and a speed reader natural are there any more companies that accept new book reviewers?

I can do one or two reviews a day—depending on the length of the book. I can read a page book in hours, and I have a photographic memory. From what they say in their FAQs, they do talk about paying for reviews and I believe that at some point, once you prove yourself by doing multiple reviews for them, you might get paid. You have to earn points by posting on their book forums a lot of posts are required it seems….

A new reviewer is only offered a few books to choose from and though you do get a free book, many of the choices are very poorly written and not edited. The first book I reviewed had been self published and was not very good. But……this person deserved a well written review and I tried to give them one. I offered constructive criticism and wrote what I liked about the book. The forums are fun; there are lots of opportunities to talk with people about books and other subjects having to do with books.

Lynn — These are all legitimate websites. Just curious as to what you were able to uncover with your own personal research? Any of them work for readers outside the US? I have a blog, in which I mostly write in Portuguese. However, I do read books in English, as they are less expensive than translations, and already write reviews for them in English.

I never knew this was an option! Thank you for putting this list together. Now I have a reason to read more! BloggingforBooks is also a good way to get free books.

Thanks for these opportunities. I also like the different perspectives of the other characters. Definitely helped fill in the blanks. All in all a very enjoyable read! Seven teaching strategies I used as a teacher to take smart but "problematic" students from "failure" to success in one academic quarter. Lots of good information on using multiple intelligences combined with differentiation strategies to help students be successful.

The Lord is My Shepherd: Anyone that likes mysteries and suspence or just like a good book. I loved this one from beginning to end. The characters are fully fleshed out and I feel like I am part of the story. The suspense is amazing. I could hardly put it down once I started reading. I am waiting impatiently for I love Diane Capri's books.

I am waiting impatiently for the next book in this series. I always enjoy reading about Arthur and his knights of the Round Table, and this was no different. Although written for children, so the events succeed each other quite quickly, there were enough new A quick read after a somewhat tiring day and week. Although written for children, so the events succeed each other quite quickly, there were enough new elements in each story to keep me guessing and interested.

I will look forward to reading more books from this author. The writing was on point with each character and his or her issues. The Sorrows of Young Werther. I think I just want thrilled about the secret he had because it could cause some triggers. OMG this book had me on the edge of my seat! Juliette was the most creepy, wonderfully deliciously crazy characters ever, and I couldn't put this book down! I stayed up until 2am to figure out Y'all, let me tell you I stayed up until 2am to figure out how everything would end and the book hangover was definitely worth it.

For anyone who's seen Fatal Attraction and liked it, this book is definitely in that lane and you do not want to miss it. This is the first book I've read from Karen Hamilton, and I am absolutely looking forward to her future novels Daniel in the Lions' Den: Mia Sheridan never disappoints!! This story is such a heartfelt, powerful story with raw emotions and REAL struggles. It tore at my heart strings and I felt so much that Audra and Dane experienced.

What a beautiful story of love, loss and redemption. A tragedy tears them apart and ironically, it's a tragedy that brings them back together.

I loved their love--I sympathized with their grief and I rejoiced in their rekindling. It was truly a romantic kind of love story that I could read over and over again. Thank you Mia Sheridan for your amazing, poignant, "feel-good" stories!! This one hit me in all the right places. In general, I like this author but this was terrible. The science and medicine was awful. Flint's Water and the American Urban Tragedy.

It actually contains about 6 mini stories each with different agents and problems to face. The art style is very graphic and sharp which fits the theme of the comic well. I was actually amazed on the concept of this comic and I definitely want to read more of them.

As mentioned earlier there are about 6 different mini stories in the comic each with different settings that fit pretty well. The central conflict overall is to always stop the devastating problem from happening without letting the public panic or even find out. Thanks to scientific advancements in the far future, he is brought back to life and returns to his position as an investigator of anomalies with the Inter Gethin Bryce was killed in a mysterious space shuttle explosion en route from Mars to the moon.

Thanks to scientific advancements in the far future, he is brought back to life and returns to his position as an investigator of anomalies with the InterPlanetary Council.

During his investigation, he links up with Jack and Keiko who work for Prometheus Industries, a massive corporation that was also rocked by a lab explosion on the moon, and Celeste, a woman from the outlands that are wild, unpredictable, and ruled by savagery.

Together, they travel across the Earth of the far future, revealing the history of Earth, from the very beginning to our present and beyond.

In doing so, they also learn startling revelations about the history of the planet and that history is about to collide with their present. Ten Thousand Thunders is a stunning science fiction book that takes place far into the future. The world is divided between those who live in the arcologies and have access to the technology that makes them superhuman and allows them to live forever and those who live in the wastelands where the people do what they can simply to survive.

But this book was much more than a mere commentary on the division between the haves and the have nots. It's also an incredible inquiry and investigation into how the past impacts the present and future.

I have to admit that, while I loved this book, it felt like it was far beyond my comprehension level. It seems to be greater than what I can fathom, but, while I sometimes felt overwhelmed, this didn't detract from my overall enjoyment of the story. There was so much information, so many revelations, and so many things to sort through to understand the underlying science fiction part of it, but the story was beautiful and terrifying and everything was seamlessly woven together.

Fantasy is my true love, but the problem with the vast majority of fantasy novels is the info dumping and the massive amount of time spent world building, which either draws out the story to be too long or makes the story suffer. While this book is science fiction, it takes place so far in the future that very little of this world is recognizable.

Which means the whole world needs to be built. Trent did an amazing job of just throwing the reader in and letting us figure it out on our own. There was always just enough information for the reader to puzzle it out without having to spend too much time on it and I don't feel the story ever suffered because of it.

Instead, I very much enjoyed it. The story could just continue to roll out and I felt free to be swept up in it.

Actually, I enjoyed it so much and needed to find out what happened next that I probably should have given myself time to digest it, but didn't. I was most impressed by Trent's writing style. It was crisp and succinct and did everything to keep the story going. The metaphors were always fitting, but never long. They painted the perfect pictures and I loved how they were descriptive while being stingy with the number of words. There was a great deal of information and a great deal of events going on and every word carried importance and weight.

The reader is given everything they need and nothing they don't. Most of all, I just really enjoyed his style.

Short and sweet while being crisp and packing a punch. Because I'm not a regular science fiction reader and science is not exactly my specialty, it took me a few chapters to really get into the book.

I spent much of the early chapters trying to figure out what everything was and what was going on. But, once I sorted it out, I was swept away by the story.

It never felt like it was dragged down by unnecessary scenes and actions. Everything was important and everything told the story of the Earth's past and present colliding. The characters were unique, but tender to be static, though we occasionally learned something new about them as the story progressed. The relationships between Gethin, Jack, Keiko, and Celeste were interesting and intriguing and, while it did progress, there was still the initial atmosphere of distrust.

It was kind of amazing how they managed to not kill each other and instead rely on each other. My one complaint would be the revelation about the Earth's beginning. It was definitely surprising and kind of knocked me out of the story. While it ended up making perfect sense, it always felt a little off. Though Trent did do an amazing job of incorporating this surprising part into the greater story and weaving it in so it made complete sense. By the end of the book, I was satisfied, but, when it was presented, I was left scratching my head a little.

I am very glad that Ten Thousand Thunders is the start of a series. There was so much going on and, by the end of the book, much of it is wrapped up, but not everything. I did not want to leave this future Earth. I was mollified to learn there is going to be a second book and I look forward to it. Overall, this is an incredible book.

A little dense, but the writing, story, and pacing are all wonderful. There was definitely a little more violence in the middle than I could stomach and not everything made complete sense to me, but this was a very enjoyable read. I definitely recommend stopping once in a while to digest the story. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for an advance reader copy of this book. Post date on blog: This series just keeps getting better and better. It's definitely one of my favourite series ever and Cambria Herbet is fast becoming one of my favourite authors.

This series is a must read. I loved it so much ". And what fights they are! They really put some of the favorite characters through some rigorous tests. While the overall plotline may seem slower, to me the action is so well done it is hard to not This volume focuses on some great one-on-one battles! While the overall plotline may seem slower, to me the action is so well done it is hard to notice.

Also, even through these battles we see further character improvement. No fight is an easy win this time and everyone had to actually think and strategize their battles. One More Moment Band on the Run, 3. He needs time to sort through the anger and get past it after the betrayal of his bride-to-be, but it isn't easy since her betrayal has cost him a lot.

However, th Taking time off from the band and the spotlight is the right thing for Julian Grayson. However, the moment he meets Charlotte Clark, he finds he's more alive than he's ever been, especially since she doesn't know who he is. Yet, the more time they spend together, the more Julian discovers how different Charlotte and his ex are.

Will Julian be able to convince Charlotte to take a chance on him or will she walk away from her chance at happy ever after because Julian doesn't realize why she doesn't need anything else but him? This is the first book I've read of this series, and I've got to say that it was absolutely engrossing, fast-paced and a story I was totally charmed by because of the wonderful main characters; the compelling dialogue that had me loving this couple's growing relationship, their back stories and the obstacles they face to be together; and the secondary characters that entertained me just as much as the main ones because they would do anything for Julian.

The way this story started with the prologue had me sympathizing with the hero because how could his bride-to-be believe she could get away with everything she was doing and I liked that he wasn't about to continue to let her get away with everything she's done to him. Was the way he goes about exposing her too much? However, it was from the moment where Julian and Charlotte come face-to-face for the first time where this story really takes off, as Julian can't believe anyone could be as generous as the heroine without a motive.

Will he find she's just a good person? As for the dialogue, it was intense due to the main characters back stories, especially that of the hero, because he's angry for what his ex did to him and it's made him question everything and has him wondering who he can trust. Moreover, I really liked both the main characters. They had me reading this story quickly, determined to discover more about them and what obstacles they would face to be together.

Will Julian realize that all Charlotte wants is him before it's too late? Certainly, she's nothing like his ex in needing to be given something extravagant every time something goes wrong between them.

With the heroine, she's resilient, hard-working, kind, caring and I liked how determined she was to help Julian, even though it seems he doesn't need her help. He's not helpless, but just angry at life. Will the hero be able to overcome his issues? I also liked how good Charlotte is for Julian because he needs to get past what's happened.

No way can he keep going like he's going. He needs to face the past if he's to ever have a future with her. While the hero, he's struggling to move on from what his ex did and I could understand why he finds it hard to trust people. Still, I liked the hero's progression, as he begins to live life again by helping the heroine and then realizing that music is still very important to him. Really, it isn't easy for him to give up, no matter how much he thinks giving up his music career will help him to move forward with his life.
