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: email@example.com. 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!

Loved reading more about you!! I got married at the age of 21, and I have completed my studies in the civil engineering field, which I am now currently slaving away in lol! I enjoy reading about bloggers. Great blog, I am totally following you!
I completely agree
Oops, I meant forensic psychology–that’s even cooler. I think both topics are interesting, and Variety is the spice of life.
Forensic science and Greek mythology are are FANTASTIC combination. Congratulations on your beautiful family; it’s nice to read about someone who’s happy in life.
Aww this is the sweetest comment ever! Thank you so much you don’t understand how much this means to me.
Thanks for the follow. Interested in your fascination with Greek mythology- I’m currently learning Ancient Greek so soon I’ll be able to read all those originals.
This is so incredible! I have to say well done for starting to learn Ancient Greek!
Thank you for visiting my blog and following me. It looks like we have some things in common. We read similar books and I was a History major in college and one of my areas of specialization was the ancients/classics. I even did study tours in Greece and Italy!
Oh wow this is incredible! I want to pick your brain right now! This is really amazing and thanks so much for commenting! P.s. I am so sorry for only just replying I found this in my spam which is bizarre!
Thanks for the follow, can’t wait to read more of your reviews! 😀
No problem! I love your blog so I had to! And thank you so much!

Thanks for the positive comment about my blog.
What an interesting mix of interests – not mutually exclusive, as far as I’m concerned, though… I love eclectic!
Have you read Kate Atkinson’s book NOT THE END OF THE WORLD? There’s a lot of mythological reference in there, which even those (like me) who haven’t been steeped in it all their lives can still pick up on. All the stories are interwoven in the book, too, making it quite interesting.
Here’s a link in case you’re interested:
Thank you so much for this comment! And thank you for recommending this book it sounds incredible! It is definitely going on to my TBR list! Thank you and keep writing because I love your blog so much (:
