Believe me, I am the total unknown, invisible Bookanista gal. I'm like the unpopular, geeky dweeb just noticed by the cheerleaders and jocks at high school and I'm just happy to tag along and get my head patted once in awhile. Kidding! Sort of. LOL!

And if you don't already know, this is what the Bookanistas are all about!
The Bookanistas! Books are the new black!
Who are we?
We are a group of writers–in various stages of the publishing process–who have decided to band together and review the special books of our peers.
But there are no negative reviews here! As fellow writers, we have decided to only post positive reviews, and are therefore only reviewing the books we LOVE.
We post reviews every Thursday that cover various topics: upcoming ARCs, special diamonds in the rough, classics–even cover-art reviews or reveals. We also do genre spotlights, blog tours, giveaways and author interviews. All posts are cross-linked to each other to provide maximum exposure for the review.
If you would like one of us to review your book or ARC, feel free to contact me and we will add it to our list to share and swap.*
Here is a list of the Bookanistas and links to our blogs:
Sarah Frances Hardy
Stasia Ward Kehoe
Kimberley Griffiths Little
Carolina Valdez Miller
Lisa and Laura Roecker
Bethany Wiggins and Suzette Saxton
*We do not currently review self published titles, and since we only review books we LOVE, we may not post reviews for all the ARCs/books we receive.
*Also in accordance with FTC guidelines I will say that yes, most of our reviews are based on an ARC given to one of the Bookanistas for free by the publisher, and it’s then passed around amongst the group.*
