Our opinions are just that: opinions and ours. We receive no monetary compensation for any posts or reviews on this blog.

Books: I obtain the books I review in the following manner: purchased (which I keep or donate to the library), borrowed from the library (which I return), or provided to me by the author/publisher/NetGalley. My reading time is limited, so I’m extremely selective about the books I choose to read. Please DO NOT email me with a request to review a book. *I am not responsible for any author sponsored giveaways or views expressed in their work or in their guest posts on this blog. Giveaway recipients are selected at random.

5 stars = Oh-my-stars amazing!

4 stars = Great!

3 stars = Liked it

Restaurants: We receive no monetary compensation or free meals for restaurant reviews. Our reviews are based solely on our experience and taste.

5 forks = outstanding

4 forks = great

3 forks = good

Our goal is to explore Charlotte and the surrounding area and to experience new restaurants and a variety of cultures. Just because we may not enjoy a certain restaurant doesn’t mean other folks will feel the same. We will not rate or blog about a restaurant we feel is below a 3 fork rating.
