Grumpy Book Grrrl

a writer and reader

I am now accepting review requests.


I will accept digital .mobi books or hard copies.


I read Young Adult fantasy, Adult fantasy, science fiction, dystopia, LGBTQIA, reverse harem, paranormal romance (no dubcon), and quirky fiction. I like dark and gritty plots.

I do not read contemporary fiction or romance! I want to escape our world through reading. I prefer books that are under 400 pages long.


I read a lot, but work full-time and am a single parent. Real life intervenes sometimes. I will try my best to read and review your book within 4-6 weeks. If you send me an ARC, I will do my absolute best to review the book before the release date.

Where the Reviews Go

I post reviews to Goodreads, Amazon, and the blog. I will also try to share information about the book on Twitter.


I do not give out one star reviews. I rate books at Goodreads and Amazon, but rarely give starred reviews here.

If your book doesn’t resonate with me, I will let you know that I have DNF’d it and will not be posting a review. I will still try to promote the book at Twitter (cover and/or author info) because I still want to help promote books and authors!

Author Interviews

I enjoy posting author Q&As, so that is an option as well.

Please send me your request through the “Contact” button on the home page.

Thanks! – Shelly
