Who We Are
Book Lovin’ Mamas is book blog that shares reviews of books that we read throughout the year and posts that share some of our Book Lovin’ Mamas life stories. The books that we receive come from authors, publishing companies, blog tour companies, or are purchased by our own book budget throughout the year. We are a hobbyist book review blog and do not get paid at all for our blog via the authors, publishing companies, blog tour companies, etc. We love sharing our love of reading and the books we read to our followers.
