Thank you for coming to my little spot on the internet! My name is Mary and and I’m the person behind Sophril Reads. I love to read and talk about books especially when I have a cup of tea in my hands. I started this blog back in March of 2018 so hopefully you will find something on here that you like 🙂
I began this blog as something just for me after a near death scare, and I have continued it because I love talking about books and supporting authors. How long will I continue this journey? I really don’t know but I hope you enjoy the ride with me!
All of the reviews on this page are based on my own thoughts and opinions. I have gotten really good at spotting books that I am going to enjoy so that is why there are not many unhappy reviews.
Please see below for my reading tastes and my rating system.
Since starting my blog I have learned a lot about my reading tastes. I have grown in my reading tastes over the last few years so here is an updated list of what I prefer to read:
1800s Historical Fiction (Taking place in Britain)
Some Regency Romance (must have a strong female lead)
Manga (mostly taking place in Feudal Japan)
I still enjoy some YA books but not like I used to.
5 Stars – The book blew me away
4 Stars – I loved it
3 Stars – I liked it
2 Stars – I really did not like the book.
It is rare for me to rate anything below 3 stars anymore. If I am not loving the book I usually DNF it. However, if I have read more than 70% of the book and I just can’t read any more of it I might rate it 2 stars. Otherwise, I do not rate books that I DNF.
