Hello, my name is Courtney. I currently live in Texas with my husband and our 10 dogs, yes 10. I am a Photographer and Blogger. I am a southern girl who loves to read and blog about what I read and other life things. I talk about everything here on my blog from minimalism and how I went from 500+ books down to 75 and 100 left to read through. My goal is to have one bookshelf full and that’s all.

I do accept requests to review books, Preferably a print version, Giving me a copy does not guarantee a positive review or review at all, with my TBR pile growing by the day, it is best to get your book to me as soon as you can so that I can have it on my list. I do read most Genres, I specifically review YA, New Adult, and Adult Fiction, but I will look at others.

*All books that have been sent to me have a disclaimer at the bottom of the page. Getting these books free does not affect my reviews in any way. All my reviews are of my own opinion.

You are free to send me an email at curlybookowl@gmail.com
