If you’re deciding whether or not a book is worth the money–or the time–turn here to get the honest scoop on it before plunging into your wallet on an unsure bet!

Blogger Navidad Thelamour has a background in the literary world and the guts to say it straight! With a B.A. in English, Creative Writing from Georgia State University and a M.A. in Publishing from Kingston University, London, she covers all sides of the lit industry.

She’s also worked with great non-fiction only houses like Zed Books, edited dozens of full-length manuscripts of all genres for both About Words Agency and Holloway Literary Agency, and worked with author J.J. Hensley as editor and agent on his renowned debut novel, Resolve! Armed with a love for books and a professional history doused in all things literary, she’s here to be your guide into this foray of literary treats at your fingertips!
