Frequently Asked Questions

Under construction!

I get a lot of emails and comments asking questions so I figured I’d compile them into one big ol’ page of helpfulness for you! Instant gratification! If you have a further question, please do not hesitate to contact me!

Do you get paid to blog?

I do make money from my Amazon affiliate links (thanks to those who purchase if I’ve convinced you to read a book!) and the advertisements on my sidebar. It helps me pay for giveaways, maintenance of this blog, hosting fees, conferences, etc. Not enough to quit my day job!

 How many books do you read per year?

That’s hard to pinpoint! I read A LOT less than other book bloggers simply because I feel very unbalanced in life when I’m reading more than I do anything else. I’m also a mood reader so I could go for a week without reading or I could finishing two books in one day. I’d say I read around 60-90 books on average per year.

I want to have a self hosted blog on WordPress…which hosting do you recommend?

I currently use Bluehost which I do recommend and have used since I started self hosting. Like any service, there are always good and bad experiences and occasional down time but I feel like my experience has been good and they are ALWAYS super responsive and helpful when I’ve had to contact them.

Are you accepting books for review?

Yes, I am currently. Please refer to my review request policy and list of things I’m interested in. Emails that clearly do not take a look at that will be discarded so please do take a look at that to save us both time!

Where’d you get all those books you review?

Sometimes I receive books for review consideration (I will disclose that), sometimes I buy them and sometimes I get them from the library.

What’s your policy on working with publishers/brands/companies for a sponsored post or partnership?

I’m open to it if it is a good fit! I’m selective about what I would choose to be on this site and also what I will feature. You can check out my disclosure policy here.


  1. Hi, Jamie! I absolutely adore your reviews and your site. I was wondering if you could add a email subscription widget to your site because I’d love to keep up with you and your posts. 🙂

    • I do have that option on the sidebar! Underneath the “Stalk Away” image there is a symbol of an envelope and you can subscribe via email that way! 🙂 Thank you for your kind words!

  2. Hi, Jamie! I love your blog, and I just started following you. Do you have any recommendations for TV Shows?

    • Oh man! Some of my all time favorites: Friday Night Lights, Breaking Bad, One Tree Hill, Felicity, The OC, Veronica Mars (the ending is awful for the last season bc it got cancelled but there is a movie), House of Cards, The 100, Scandal, Sherlock, The Walking Dead, 24. I also loved Grey’s Anatomy until they did something awful recently. But the first 4 seasons were some of the best tv. I’ve stuck with it because I loved it so much but it’s been a bumpy ride.

      I JUST started watching Orphan Black and binged my way through the first 2 seasons and it is AMAZING. It’s on season 3 on tv right now. I also really got into How To Get Away With Murder when it premiered this season. Can’t wait for next season. I also just binged The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. It was so funny and we don’t really do comedies. One I also loved last year but wouldn’t call it a FAVORITE is The Killing. So good.

  3. Hi Jamie!

    I’m trying to make some friends in the book blogging community, I just started out a year ago. Anything you used to meet new people and get more readers?

    Love the site!
