Briar’s Reviews

Helping you find your next indie book to read.


Growing up, I read books as if it were the air I needed to breathe. You could always find me with a book on my lap, whether it was at school between classes, after swim practice, or when I was sitting in the car. Reading was my little getaway, and I loved every second of it.

As I got older, I found myself reading the books that no one else had heard of. Everyone else was binging Twilight while I was picking up Vladimir Tod, Vampire Kisses and The Drake Chronicles. In my adulthood, I found many more people wanted those indie books… so why not give them a peek inside my little library? And with that, Briar’s Reviews became a blog.

Have an indie book you want me to review?


Indie Books

I love reading a book that no one else has heard of! Self published, hasn’t found it’s reader base, or just brand new! Those are my favourite. There’s nothing great than a book to start a conversation.

Romance & Thrills

I read a lot of genres – romance, mystery, middle grade, fantasy. Check out my About page for more details on what kind of books I read. I love a little dash of everything!

Popular Tales

Of course, every once and a while a girl has gotta dig into the Bestseller list. You’ll see a few of those pop up here too! I love chatting with other readers about all the books we can get our hands on.


I recently had the opportunity to work with [Briar’s Reviews] on a book project of mine. I am an independent author and publisher and reached out to her to read my latest book and give me her honest opinion.

[Briar’s Reviews] was quick to respond to my initial email and was communicative throughout the entire process. I feel she has a firm grasp on some of the challenges we indie authors face, especially on the marketing front. Indie authors have to perform many tasks besides writing, with social media outreach being one of the most difficult.

[Briar’s Reviews] was quick to go to her social media channels with news of my upcoming book and also wrote a thoughtful, thorough, and professional review for the major sales platforms as well as her personal blog. This type of exposure is very difficult for independent authors to gain on their own.

Her assessment of my book was honest and supportive and done in a timely fashion. I will not hesitate to contact [Briar’s Reviews] again in the future, and I highly recommend her to anyone who needs help seeing the bigger marketing picture for their projects.
