I pride myself on finding the best of the best and surrounding myself with amazing people. Our reviewers care about what they review, they care about being honest and keeping their integrity while still being respectful. We make no promises to give a certain star rating because it’s our name on the line. We do however avoid posting any rating lower than a 3 out of respect for the author’s hard work. I currently have 53 amazing kick butt reviewers and all of them are integral to this business! Everyone of them has signed an NDA and understand their importance. Please take a moment to get to know just some of our reviewers in no particular order.
Colleen N – Owner & Founder of Itsy Bitsy Book Bits
A little about me, I have been with my husband 21 years, we have one sixteen year old daughter, a cat, and a dog. I am originally from NY but have resided in Colorado Springs, CO for most of my life. I love playing volleyball, bowling, working out, Canasta and singing. I first taught myself to read at 4 years old and funny enough the first thing I learned to read was the TV Guide, which would explain my obsession with loving a million shows lol. Growing up I couldn’t read enough, it’s all I did every day all day. I first fell in love with Judy Blume & Beverly Cleary then graduated to V.C. Andrews and True Crime. In my early 20’s I got married, had a baby, and life just became ridiculous which caused me to soon lose my love of reading and books for many many years. Last year I read a book that threw me for an absolute loop (If you Stay by Courtney Cole). That book made me laugh, cry, scream, stomp my feet, and throw my hands up. Soon after, I came across a post from Leigh Ann Lunsford looking for people to read one of her books. At first I was completely stunned because A) I had never heard of authors doing ARC’s and B) I had never heard of an author actually talking to their fans. I sat down to read Not Enough and had never been so moved in my entire life by a book. I felt as if part of it was my life and that Leigh Ann had somehow been in my head and possessed me. It touched such an immense part of my life that I took a chance and sent her a PM. Something silly if I remember correctly like a line in the book that made me laugh my butt off and I sent her the line with a crying emoticon. Imagine my surprise when she actually messaged back. The fact that someone so brilliant would take the time to lol with me and chat meant so much. I was still reeling from the loss of my father and needed it more than she will ever know. We soon became friends and she has a special place in my heart forever. I soon found my passion for reading again and in ways I never even knew existed. As Leigh Ann and I talked I learned more about authors and especially Indie authors. I soon realized that the passion I once lost was back 10 fold and in new ways so I began Itsy Bitsy Book Bits. I have surrounded myself with an amazing team of reviewers (53) and assistants who keep me sane and together we are hoping to build the most amazing business for authors and readers by authors and readers. Thank you for joining us on this journey.

Aideen by L.A. Casey
“I frowned and touched Nico’s face. “You’re too pretty to receive punches to the face.”
Nico laughed and said, “Bro, your girl thinks I have a pretty face.”
“So? She thinks I have a pretty cock; I know which one I’m happier with.”
About me: I’m currently in college, finishing up my last semester so that I can graduate and become a teacher. I love reading, sometimes I read so much I forget about my college work. I have 2 younger sisters and 1 younger brother. I try my hardest to be someone they look up to, a good role model. My passion for reading began in elementary school. I remember checking out the Magic tree house books, along with the Babysitters Club books. As I grew older, reading became something I wanted to do all the time. While in high school I was involved in athletics and extracurricular clubs so I didn’t get to read much. Today, that is different. If I could I would read all day long! Reading enriches our lives, it allows us to learn about other people, places and customs. Some see it as boring, I see it as a window to a new world.
