It isn’t perfect, but it’s home.

Welcome to Introvert Reader’s Home. Hey.

Introvert Reader is my handle for book blogging. I’m all about books, reviewing them, writing, hanging out with my cats, and chilling.

I read all genres: romance, science fiction, mystery-and-thrillers, non-fiction (usually history and biographies), vintage-pulp, trashy books, and occasionally a work of literature.

I review books many readers consider offensive or worse–and I usually like them a lot, so take that as you will.

A professional book blogger, I am not. This site is just for fun. I do accept ARCS. However, reviews may take me a while. So if you’re waiting on my 5-star rating to make or break your sales… 🤷‍♀️

Even though I am an introvert, I overshare. I’ll ramble on in reviews and tell you embarrassing things about me. Just a head’s up. I’m socially awkward.

Book Reviews to Check Out

Rating System

As long as I’m entertained, a book will get a positive review, no matter the quality of the writing.

If I give a book a low rating or negative review, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try reading it.

You know the saying about what are opinions are like? I’m no better than the next person, so take my hyperbolic ravings with a grain of salt.

  • 5 Stars – I love, love it! A desert-island-keeper.
  • 4.5 Stars – Sure, it’s not perfect–what book is? I’m keeping this on my shelves.
  • 4 Stars – Great! I enjoyed it so much! I may hold on to it for a re-read.
  • 3.5 stars – An entertaining, instructive, or enlightening read. Liked it a lot!
  • 3 stars – A flawed book with positive aspects outweighing negatives. An average book, but time well spent.
  • 2.5 Stars – Contains moments I enjoyed, but not enough to make me like the book overall. Sorry. Sell, swap, or donate.
  • 2 Stars – Not the worst I’ve read, and there might be some positive about the writing or story, but I did not like this.
  • 1.5 Stars – I couldn’t stand reading this book–maybe for petty reasons. More likely due to frustration over essential issues. Still, I acknowledge the author has talent. Somewhere.
  • 1 Star – I HATED this, probably because I was really bored! Boring is the worst thing a book can be. Worst case, this is a DNF where I got 1/2 way through. At best, I finished it! (yay)

See You at the Rainbow Bridge, Kitty!
