Beta Reading

 I have decided to start beta reading. If you would like me to read your book before you publish, feel free to contact me. All of this information can also be found on my page "Beta Reading".

I'm an avid reader, and have been reviewing/blogging for almost a year and a half now. I have recently started beta reading, and would love to work with you! I read a wide variety of genre, but most often read YA/NA. Middle Grade, and Fantasy (all ages) but am willing to read most any genre.

I don't often read romance or contemporary fiction, but am happy to occasionally, so feel free to ask.

I will not read LGBT+ or erotic fiction, but don't mind LGBT+ characters or sex, it just can't be the main focus of the story.

Gore isn't a problem, and I love adult dark fantasy, steampunk horror, and YA/middle grade paranormal horror.

I'll beta read most books for $25, but longer books (like epic fantasy, etc) might be slightly more. I can also take a little less for poetry, short stories, and novella. Just ask.

Turn around is often 1-2 weeks, but might be a little longer on books with over 400+ pages, or during my busy seasons. I also run a blog tour company, so I have to plan around that as well. I read books in first come, first serve order.

You can contact me here, message me, or email me at adventuresthruwonderland@gmail.com

ARC Review: Santa, Please Bring Me a Gnome

33375922 Santa, Please Bring Me a Gnome by An Swerts
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Dear Santa... That's how Tess starts her letter. You don't have to bring me any toys this year. The only thing I want is a real gnome. Full of anticipation, Tess looks forward to the day her new friend arrives: a friend she can take everywhere, and with whom she can share everything. With Grandpa and Grandma's help, she gets everything ready. Grandpa builds little pieces of furniture, Grandma sews a little blanket, and Tess prepares a welcome meal. And then it's finally Christmas Eve ... Will Santa bring a real gnome? A heartwarming picture book with wonderfully funny illustrations.

My Monday #10

It's Monday again! I...think I missed last Monday, oops! But I'm happy to say that in the two weeks since I started, by blog tour company is doing good, and I'm excited for the tours to start! We still need more bloggers, so if you are interested, please feel free to sign up! We'd love to have you! There will be a monthly, or bi-monthly giveaway exclusively for tour hosts, so each tour you sign up for will be another entry!

Last week I had to give up my job with Reading Addiction Book Tours to pursue my dream of starting Bookish Adventures Book Tours (Yeah, I changed the name :P) I enjoyed my time with Cami at RABT, but I needed to do this, and it's been a goal of mine since I started blogging last year.

I will still be active in blog tours from many different companies, so I look forward to finding some new favorite books! Meeting new authors, and finding new books is my favorite part of blog tours, and I'm so happy I am a past of this community!

Today I mailed off my first candle since I reopened Tangent Adventures (yay!) and grabbed a few more books at the library. I wanted to get The Gunslinger by Stephen King, and the comic Monstress, but they were checked out, so I'm putting them on hold. I did get The Wrath & The Dawn, Incarceron, and Nevernight though, so I'm excited to get to those! I have a ton of reviews coming up, so it might be a while, but oh well! haha

How has your week been, anything exciting happen? Feel free to share below! And thanks for reading!
