Hi there! Thank you so much for visiting my website Red Headed Book Lover! You probably found yourself here because you would like to know more about the ‘Red Headed Book Lover,’ and if you do then you are in the right place! My name is Aimee, and I created Red Headed Book Lover so that I could share reviews for books I have loved with fellow book lovers as well as help authors showcase their work.
Creating Red Headed Book Lover was the greatest decision I have ever made because along the way I have met so many book lovers as well as worked with authors from all over the world which has been such a wonderful experience! I adore meeting book lovers and authors and love learning more about both and so I, in turn, am going to share more about me so you can get to know me better! However, I will try not to bore you with the details of my life so I will try to keep this short and sweet.
All you really need to know about me is that my name is Aimee and I am the wife of a Marine and a mother! My interests of course include reading and reviewing… lots of it! Ever since I was a young girl I have been book obsessed and whenever I have the chance to, I pick up a book and love getting lost in it.
Now that is a little about me! However if you want to chat or just want to know more about me! Then you can always follow my private Instagram account which is @redheadedbookloverblog . I adore meeting fellow book lovers as well as meeting authors so come by and say hi! I would love to hear from you.
For a long time I have been asked questions by readers as well as authors, and so I have created a list below which answers the most frequently asked questions so here are my answers book lovers and authors!
Why are all of your reviews so positive?!
This is a question I get asked frequently and one I actually love to answer. As I am sure you can tell by now I am a very positive person and hate negativity. That is why I have chosen only to post reviews of books I genuinely love and have given four of five stars too. I, of course, have read many books (probably too many!) that are not so great; however, I do not see the point in me reviewing the book. I do not think it is necessary as I would have to spend time writing a review, editing it, posting it and so on and the review would just consist of why I disliked the book. I personally do not feel that this is wise, but it is also not kind to the author. Authors work really hard to ensure they produce a great book and sometimes they won’t succeed; however, I do not feel their name should be tarnished for this. I do believe in private, constructive criticism if asked for however; I do not believe in sharing negative reviews online. Besides! I like to keep my website a happy, optimistic and lively place where book lovers can unite, so only positivity is allowed!
Will you review my book?
This is a question I get asked a lot and the short answer is yes, if I feel that I would enjoy and love your book and other readers will too then I would love to review it. Reading is my passion, and I love the art of literature and the written word, and I love reviewing just as much as I loved reading. That is why I adore reviewing books for authors, whether the author is self-published or traditionally published.
On my website, I have a strong focus on making sure that self-published novels are reviewed, and that is why 98% of my reviews are for self-published books. I truly respect self-published authors and think that many indie authors are incredible however many big-name publishers will not give them a chance which makes me sad. This is actually one of the many reasons why I created Red Headed Book Lover so that I could share indie books with readers as many traditional forms of media/advertising do not give indie authors the opportunity. So if you are an indie author or a published author, I would love to hear from you and learn more about your book, so please email me on one of the many contact forms on my page as I would love to hear from you!
My About Me page is dedicated mostly to me on a personal level however if you are interested in a review, please do visit my services page here: Services, as well as my Testimonials page here: Testimonials so you can learn more about what I do.
Disclaimer* All services on my website are paid for; my website is a paid reviewing service and more information about this can be found on my Services page as well as my Terms of Service page which are both linked.
Who designed your website?
Surprisingly this is a frequently asked question, and I always love sharing who did design my website as his work is excellent! I should mention at this point that I am in no way an affiliate of this web developer/designer, I received no free work, have no affiliate ties and have not been told to share this information, I just genuinely love his website design.
My website designer is Mike at MB-Sites, and he builds customized websites for users of WordPress. What I love about Mike’s service is that he listens to everything you would like, even down to the most delicate details and provides exactly what you want/envisioned. I confess book lovers that I messaged poor Mike so many times about little things I would like, and he has done everything I wanted and was patient along the way which is professional and a service I am happy to pay for. If you are interested in finding a web designer/developer then his website is: MB-Sites and his email is: firstname.lastname@example.org. Just to clarify again book lovers and authors these are not affiliate links and I have no marketing affiliation with MB-Sites; just love the service!
There you have it book lovers, some of my most frequently asked questions! There are many more common questions however I feel that this page is already very long so do not want to bore you book lovers and authors for much longer!
Thank you once again for stopping by my website and reading! I truly do appreciate it. If you would like to get in touch, please do as I would love to hear from you, I love meeting new people and would love to meet you lovely readers and authors here, or on my Instagram @redheadedbookloverblog so I look forward to hearing from some of you! Thank you again for stopping by!

Hey Aimee!! Thanks a lot for the follow and liking my post on ‘Ruth’… I just dropped by to see your blog and I really some of your reviews
Hi there! This is the sweetest comment even thank you so much! What is your name I would love to talk with you more (:
My name is Amenah but its pronounced as ‘Aa-mi-nah’…. 😊😊
I’m from India, but you must have guessed that by my blog name by now☺️
It would be my pleasure to talk to you!
Haha I did guess that but how lovely to know your name! My name is Aimee nice to meet you Amenah!
Nice to meet you too, Aimee. You know, I like this name so much, I even sign myself by Amy in my diary or any other personal thing 😉
That is so great! I admit I love my name too, I am obsessed with the French and in French it means love! Well, my name means love in general! Lol.
That’s so cute!! My name means peace 🙂
Aww how lovely!!
Thank you for your kind words on my reviews! Also I am so happy that I have found another reader who loves Jane Eyre! Isn’t it just the most wonderful novel!!
It is!!!! I mean, it’s just so beautiful 😍 The best thing about it is it’s ending. The love of Jane and Mr. Rochester is so real, it isn’t based on materialistic things… grand home, lots of fineries and such.
And another great thing, nor Jane and neither Edward Rochester have strikingly beautiful faces. They are plain and normal looking. Most books don’t have that kind of a hero and heroine…
I can talk about it all day, lol 😉
Yes! Everything you just wrote is so perfect and so true, they love each other for each other not for anything else. It is a pure, true love and I adore them both and their story so much!!
Me too😍 I was so angry when my sister exchanged it for a copy of another book from the bookstore few years back. But I’ve finally bought it in hard copy and am so happy to have it in my hands once more 🙂
Aww how wonderful! I have a hardback special edition of Jane Eyre and it literally is my most prized possession lol.
I don’t have a special edition. Got it pretty cheap. But yes, out of all my books, it’s my most prized possession 🙂
Thank you for your comment!
Those people are dissatisfied with their own lives and when they see someone who has chosen the quiet homely life, they think of them as underachievers, even though they get to a point in life where they have to concede that the homely life, was after all, the best choice. Also, the children of career oriented women don’t get the kind of attention they need from their mothers, which at some point in their life, shows in the littlest of things. I have a friend whose mother has a 9 to 5 job and whenever she’s at home for a… Read more »
I am very traditional and that is the path I have taken in life and I don’t think I should be made to feel bad for that you know? There is more to life than having an amazing career etc. You hear all too often about all these people who strive for such things only to get there and find they have nobody beside them. Anyway! I’m rambling lol (:
OMG! You’ve replied so many times and I just saw all of it now when I opened my blog from the app! I feel so bad for leaving you hanging 🙁
Anyway, I’m finally done with my exams, yay!
And no, never let those mean people get to you 😬
You’re doing a far worthy job than them, you know. You’re raising beautiful, responsible human beings who would be the torch-bearers for the next generation!! If that isn’t amazing, I don’t know what is :/
Aww this is so sweet and no problem at all about the late reply! How did your exams go?! Honestly though thank you for your kind words that is so lovely (:
They went so-so… Only my marks will tell me how I fared (sigh).
And you’re welcome 🙂
Aww, I am sure you did great! I do not miss exams though!!
Yeah… I won’t either once I’m done studying 😉
Haha look forward too it because it is so great when you don’t have to study anymore!
Now you’re making me overly eager to just shut all my books in a box and throw it into the sea (or someplace I can never reach it) 😉😛
Thank you so much for following me. Can’t wait to read your reviewed books. I have an Instagram account where I post poetry and quotes. Do visit.
My username is: wordswillsetmefree
Aww you are so welcome! You’re blog is wonderful. Thank you so much also!
I am going to follow you now thanks for letting me know! (:
Are you a member of the Weasley Family? 🙂 🙂 🙂
The Weasley family? No I’m not lol. Who are they? (:
Hahaha!!! 😁 I thought you were 😁😁😁 just kidding LOL
lol I don’t understand the whole Weasley family thing lol!
Really? I thought you were kidding! Haha they are from Harry Potter – Ron Weasley’s Family. They are all red-headed 😊😊😊
OH MY GOD HAHAHA!!!!!
I am so sorry and I am so dumb for not getting this joke lol. I just laughed my head of that is so funny!
Hahaha! It’s okay 😉😉😉
Hell I wish I was though, I LOVE Harry Potter and I think I would make an awesome red haired witch! So are you a big Harry Potter fan? (:
Haha! Yes, I am! I loveeeed Harry Potter. My yearly wishlist is to have a copy of all the books. Believe it or not, I finished reading them only by borrowing. Haha! I hope this year I’d be able to get them though 😉
Haha aww bless, I love having copies of my favourite books. Especially hard back editions!
Thanks! 🙂 🙂 🙂 Me too! But they are pricey than the paperback ones so I tend to buy the cheap version 🙂
Haha that is me too sometimes! Some paperback versions are so beautiful though!
Couldn’t agree more 🙂
Did you like the movies? (:
I like the books better! Though it was fascinating to see the action come alive! Very well done 🙂
I agree! I think the books are always better but sometimes it is fun to see them translated into a big block buster!
Thank you for following my web-novel! I hope you have a good day and you’re enjoying my story. ^^ https://cosmicpink.wordpress.com/
Aww you are so welcome! You have a wonderful blog. Do you have Twitter or Instagram? I just made accounts and would love to follow you!
Sure! I don’t have an Instagram I use these days (nothing to take pictures of, haha) but you can follow my Twitter!: https://twitter.com/lmc_hudson
Great I will follow you now thanks!
For some reason, your comment on my blog came in as spam. I approved it and now I can’t find it :(. Anyway I just wanted to thank you for the follow (followed back) and the really sweet comment. It made kind of a crappy day better. Thanks!!
Hi Eileen! Thanks for stopping by! Oh that happens to me too and it is very frustrating! I am just glad you saw it. Thank you following also that is so sweet of you (: I can’t wait to see what you post next! Thanks (:
Thanks. Just put something out there. Have a good one.
Hello RedheaedBooklover, The same thing happened to your first comment on my blog, it was marked as Spam, but I marked it as Not Spam and I approved the comment so that it could show up on my blog. If your comments are getting marked as Spam on WordPress.com you can contact Akismet (https://akismet.com/contact/) using their contact form on their website, which is the service that WordPress.com uses for spam protection, and they can fix this for you.

Thanks so much for this I am going to have a look now!
You are welcome RedheadedBooklover, good luck.
Yesterday I made a reply to Eileen’s comment with information that may help her find your comment on her blog, but I do not see my reply here.
Hi John! I am currently working through my comments know and I am sure I will come across it soon! I approve all my messages so sometimes it takes time (: thanks!
Oh, I did not know that you manually moderate all of your comments, thank you for letting me know.
On my blog I have manual moderation enabled only on the first two comments that a person makes, after they have two approved comments, all other comments by that person after that will automatically show up without moderation other than the default spam protection that we all have through Akismet.
I did not know you could do this! Maybe I should look into that it would be much easier! You are good with all this WordPress stuff!
Hello RedheadedBooklover, I was actually wrong about one thing, only one approved comment is needed before their future comments no longer need to be manually moderated, and this can be done from the: WP Admin | Settings | Discussion | Before A Comment Appears and then uncheck Comment Must Be Manually Approved and check Comment Author Must Have A Previously Approved Comment Here is what the WordPress.com Support Page has to say about this setting: https://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/discussion-settings/#before-a-comment-appears I would make things easier in my opinion. 😉 Thanks, I have been blogging here since 2011, and so I had time to look… Read more »
Thanks so much for the information! I will have a look shortly, thanks! (:
You are welcome.
Hi there! Thanks for the like and the follow. I saw you that love ancient history; it would be great if you could read my latest work ‘The Spears of Poseidon’ when it is finished.
Hi Tom! Thanks for your comment. I do love ancient history and I love reading about it. Your book sounds great! When it is finished please email me and we can discuss me reviewing it for you (: thanks again!
