Welcome to Hashtag Prose, a book review and discussion blog that hopefully will help you find new book to read and promote more reading.
It’s safe to assume you’ll know I love books already just by the nature of my blog. If you need further proof, my husband will be very eager to show you the highlighted amazon purchases on our bank statements. The reason I initially started this blog was because Goodreads just isn’t enough for me to find my next book. I love Goodreads, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes I am just in a very distinct mood. How distinct you ask? Well I’ve caught myself googling Catherine the Great novel centered around coup with extensive details of her killing husband-true or not. Thats pretty specific right? Did I find it? Kind-of. More importantly, I kind of found it for you too.
What I want to do with my reviews is to make sure you know what type of book you’re going to read. I know how that slump is between books when you’re searching the Kindle and Goodreads suggestions afraid to spend more money on a meh book. That’s not fun for anyone.
The layout of my reviews will begin with hashtags for those of you (including myself) that sometimes just don’t have the time to read an entire review. Hashtags I will include are a rating, opinions, genre, and other specific details to help you decide whether or not this is the book that will currently fit your mood.
Following the hashtags will be a more in depth review of the book. I will not be including spoilers in these reviews, mainly because I’m assuming you’re here prior to purchase so I think retaining some mystery will benefit your reading experience. Don’t worry, I am working on a section where we can discuss, rant, and rave whether this is through Facebook or my blog, I’m not certain yet.
If you look above at the main menu, you will find a link that directs you to Books where I have several categories for you to explore. I love all kinds of genre’s. Some of the best authors and novels I’ve found have been through stepping outside of my staple genre’s. I want my reviews to reflect that. Whether you’re looking for a quick escape, something heavier, or something more personalized to your current circumstances, I hope you can find something great to read here. Please give me time to update this list as there are a lot of very good works to add. I will include a rating along with some specific details to help you make a more well-informed decision. I am hoping to have reviews of all these books up as soon as possible.
Every week I will be reviewing both a traditionally published author along with indie/self-published authors. There are so many talented indie and self published authors out there and one of my larger hopes is that I can gain them more of an audience because they without a doubt deserve it. *Side-eyeing you R.

Last but not least, be on the look out for some blog posts that explore topics not directly related to reviews. These will include lists of my favorite books/authors, some how-to’s, and book rankings. Hopefully I’ve covered everything. My social media links can be found at both the top and bottom of the page. Feel free to contact me through those or also using the form found on my Contact Page.
