My name is Jennifer and I am the founder and owner of Genuine Jenn. I have been blogging since May 2010, 2020 marked 10 years! Wow does time fly! I have enjoyed so many aspects of the blogging world - reviewing products, books, learning new recipes, meeting new people. 

I now mainly blog about books. I love to read. I read all sorts of genres but especially love to read mystery/thriller/crime/psychological/YA/romance and personal development. 

I am a mother of two teens and three spoiled rescue dogs. I work personal home care, my husband and I opened our own Chip wagon/Ice cream shop this summer (2020) as a seasonal business. I now look forward to the fall/winter for more reading time!

  1. Hi,

    Can you tell me if you would be willing or able to review my children's picture book?

    I am a teacher as well as an independent author and have written two children's books which I would be pleased if you would consider reviewing.
    The first book is currently out in print.
    'Jay-Jay the Supersonic Bus' is about a bus rescued from a scrapyard and turned into a 'Playbus'.
    The book is currently with myself as hard copy but is being put into ebook format at present.

    The second book will be out this autumn and is being illustrated.
    It is an island adventure story for Jay-Jay.
    Can you please let me know if you are interested.
    Further information can be found on my web site and Facbook pages should you be interested.
    Many thanks
    Sue Wickstead
    ‘Jay-Jay the Supersonic Bus’
    'Bewbush Playbus and its Memories’

  2. What a diverse group you are! I saw your blog listed in the Book Review Directory. I blog and write, and noticed that most reviewers work hard reading and writing reviews, but don't get much traffic for all that work, including myself. Like Ryan Lanz, I'd like to feature your work on my site. Each week I feature a specific genre. If you have a book review for that genre post the link in the comment section. I will visit it and list all the links the next week and on my link page as well. You don't have to read another book, but publicize a post you've already created. Yeah!!! I read that you review biographies. Here is a link for memoirs. is no catch. I'm retired, love to read and blog for fun. Marsha :)

  3. Greetings Kris: Hope you are well.

    I have recently published Where Destiny Commands (3/20/18) on Amazon-KDP. It is set in the waning years of the British Raj. A true love story, it recounts the WWII exploits of a young Indian doctor sent to the Middle East where, against the greatest odds of battle and capture, he meets someone in Cairo. They were my parents.

    Rich in well researched historical and battle detail, as well as life as it was then in, both, Calcutta (Kolkata) and Cairo, the book is 567 pages. It has just received it's first 5++ review. If I may send you a summary, please email me: Best regards, Leila Sen

  4. Title: V.Q.E: The Tale of an Indian Physician in the United Kingdom of the 1980’s
    Paperback: 224 pages
    Printed: IngramSpark (USA)
    ISBN: 978-1-64467-978-4 (sc)
    ASIN: B07J3NSQ38 (Kindle-ebook)
    Price: $7.99 (pb) $2.99 (kindle)
    Author: Vivek Gumaste
    In 1980, after completing medical school in India, I landed in Britain in pursuit of his dream to get to the United States. I was young, a full 26-year-old, ambitious and opinionated. The two and half years that I spent in Britain prior to coming to the United States were eventful years and I have written a book captures that period
    It is set in Great Britain of the early 1980's and comprises a medley of experiences: of a young, nationalist Indian coming to the land of his colonial masters, a new medical graduate negotiating the travails of an international medical career and of an objective spectator looking down upon this once great power. Thrown into this unlikely cocktail is the political backdrop of Britain in the 80, s- the rise of Margaret Thatcher, the Royal Wedding of Princess Diana and Prince Charles, the Falkland War and racism.

    Please consider the book for review.

  5. Dear Kris,
    Would you be interested in reviewing my linked short-story collection 'Treading the Uneven Road'? It will be released soon by Fomite Press. It is approx. 50000 words.

    The stories in this collection are set in a small village in the West of Ireland in the early 1980’s and 90’s. A by-pass around the village has rid them of their once busy traffic. The residents feel forgotten by the world. The need to reach out and be heard is explored in every story, from the young woman who starts to have phone conversations with her husband’s gay lover, to the dyslexic man who confronts his cruel teacher years later.
    The collection is not only about the characters need for salvation but it is about a society that is unraveling. In Amends, we hear about the Bishop who has fathered a child. A priest is beckoned by a dying man to be mocked. The world inside and outside the village is changing. In every story the characters need to make a choice on how they might carry on.

    The blurb from Pamela Painter, author of Getting To Know The Weather, and The Long and Short of it--
    Set in Ireland, the wonderful stories in TREADING THE UNEVEN ROAD are connected with bands of steel and heart. Their unforgettable characters weave in and out of each other’s lives, acting on impulses that are sometimes misguided, occasionally dangerous but often beautiful. A great read.

    My novel Debris was released last April. I am from Sligo, Ireland but presently reside in Massachusetts. May I send you a copy of the book? I can send PDF, kindle or another e-reader version.
    I will look forward to hearing from you, best wishes Lorna

  6. May I ask how can we request reviews? I looked on your site but couldn't find it. (Quite possibly I missed it and it was right in front of me, that happens a lot.) Anyway, I have 2 books that I wanted to inquire about. My first book's name is Pawn (author name J.C. Ahern). The second book's name is Royals. It is about a post-apocalyptic world where humans are forced to compete in Virtual Reality Matches against each other and animal humanoids. It is a fast paced book with lots of action scenes and is a mixture of Fantasy and Sci-Fi (Sci-Fi in the real world, Fantasy in the VR because anything is possible in a video game). It fits in several genres including YA, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Action/Adventure, and LitRPG. There is a bit of a love interest in the book, but I don't make that a huge part of the story. The story goes back and forth between 2 first person perspectives a girl (Rogue) and a boy (Ronin). I would really appreciate an review. There is nothing I treasure more than an honest take and constructive criticism. If you are interested let me know and I will send you the code to get free copies.

  9. Hello, I would love it if I could have my novel, Blessings and Curses reviewed. Blessings and Curses is a character driven 224 page Christian/Inspirational novel. Blessings and Curses is about Olivia Douglass who is undecided about becoming a priest even after she has completed seminary. She is adopted and for most of her life, she has had a curse over her. In order to help her find out whether or not she is led to the priesthood, her parish priest gives her an assignment - to pray with an inmate on death row. The relationship with the inmate makes her curious about her own life before she was adopted. Before he is executed, the inmate asks for Olivia's help and in honoring his personal request, she discovers something in her past that threatens to uproot her ordinary life with her adopted family and causes her to desperately struggle to hold on to her persona and position.
    I sincerely hope that you will review my novel, Blessings and Curses. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

  10. Hi, Jenn

    I have two books I’d love to have you review:

    The Id from Eden is a fictional work about AI getting into the wrong hand (e.g. Satan)
    The Black Line is non-fiction and about my team’s writing the software that flew the SR-71 spy plane for 22 years. It has interviews with two of the flight crews.

    Any interest?

  11. I represent Dorit Sasson, an Israeli American author of an upcoming memoir called Sand and Steel: A Memoir of Longing and Finding Home which will be released in May 2021.

    I see you review non-fiction books including memoirs, and Dorit’s memoir focuses on a loss of home. After doing an extreme act of leaving her heart home of Israel, kibbutz support system, and family, she struggles with Reverse Culture Shock (which the U.S. Department of State identifies as an "emotional displacement syndrome") as a returning American to the States which leads her to experiment with creative ways to stay in the States and build roots for her own and her family's sake.

    As our homes have now become the center of our lives, this timely memoir will help readers gain a different appreciation of home. This book will help people realize that home (past or present) is everywhere they feel and think it is, no matter how far away they feel from it.

    I'm happy to send you an eBook or print version (upon release), and I would love to email her media sheets to you. Thank you so much for considering this review request. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Kelli -

  12. I wanna here from yoo2, pls:
    ♡ ♡
    Love you.
    Cya soon.

  13. Dear Jenn,

    I am writing to see if you would be interested in reviewing my Indie book- Building Resilience and Finding Meaning in Life: A Guide for Teens. Here is a summary and link to the book.

    Building Resilience and Finding Meaning in Life: A Guide for Teens is an interactive book meant to engage readers in learning how to face adversities in life and to find meaning in these experiences. It gives the message that we have a treasure chest of inner resources that can be called upon in the face of adversity. These resources must be discovered and, in some instances, developed to build resilience and find what holds personal meaning. Along with discovering meaning in adversity readers are encouraged to look for meaningful moments in their lives rather than engaging in activities that often lead them to feel empty inside.

    The guide also can be read by counselors and educators to help teens cope and live a more meaningful life. The guide was inspired by the teachings of Dr. Viktor Frankl, noted author of Man’s Search for Meaning, and by the research findings on character strengths presented by the VIA Institute on Character.

    Thank you for your time and consideration.
