About Me

I keep six honest serving-men:
(They taught me all I knew)
Their names are What and Where and When
And How and Why and Who.

From "The Elephant's Child" by Rudyard Kipling


What is the purpose of “Becky’s Book Reviews”

To promote the love of reading by providing teens, tweens, parents, teachers, librarians, fellow bloggers, and booklovers of all ages, with reviews of books published for children, young adults, and adults.

Where can you find my reviews?

Here at Becky's Book Reviews. But also at Young Readers and Operation Actually Read Bible.

Where do my books come from?

I receive review copies from some publishers. I also get books from my local library. And then there are books that I've bought or received as gifts. For the past six months, I've tried to indicate (by label) where each book came from.

When is the site updated? (How often is the site updated?)

I am committed to posting five to six times a week. (Though often I post daily).

How do I choose what to review?

I review every book that I finish. (I am not promising to finish every book I start!) As to what I choose to read at any given time, well, that is subjective. Excepting the few commitments I make for blog tours, I decide what to read and when to read it.

For more on what kinds of books I'm looking to review, see my review policy

Why did I create Becky's Book Reviews? Why do I feel compelled to blog?

I love to read. I love to write. I love to discuss. I love helping readers connect with books. I want to help promote reading. I want to introduce books and authors to readers. The site helps me do this. It is also immensely satisfying to blog. It helps me keep track of what I read. It helps me connect with a community of readers.

Who is Becky of Becky’s Book Reviews?

The background is based on a background I found here...with some small adjustments on my part so it would work with the template.
