Open to discussing other bookish promotional opportunities as well.

Hi Book Friends! I’m glad you’re here.

I’ve had a life long love affair with books. Beginning with L. M. Montgomery and Betty Smith and graduating to Ken Follett and Pat Conroy and Anne Rice and Sidney Sheldon.  Nowadays I’m usually reading the latest Michael Connelly or Lucinda Riley or Colleen Hoover. Lots of historical fiction and suspense. J. T. Ellison and Sandra Block and Caroline Kepnes know how to keep me on the edge of my chair. New authors like Janna King and Amy Doan and Kate Quinn are also on my radar!

You can find me usually driving around Orange County with an iced coffee hiding out at Blackmarket Bakery, hunting for Little Free Libraries or planning the next book swap.

FTC Disclosure

I receive review copies of some of the books I review. In accordance with FTC regulations, I disclose where I got the book (library, publisher, purchased, etc.). If I received a review copy, an additional disclosure statement will be found just before the review itself.


All content on theocbookgirl.com is copyrighted (by me) as of the date of writing unless otherwise stated. This includes my reviews, photos, and any images or graphics created by me. All other contents (other people’s photos/art, book covers, interviews, guest posts, and videos) are the property of the original authors, artists, and/or publishers unless otherwise stated.  Please contact me if you would like to quote or repost.


Updated 4/15/19: I have decided to change the way books are reviewed on this blog. I’m no longer using a starred rating system.

  • I happily accept reviews of the following categories of books; Young Adult, Mystery/Thriller, Contemporary Romance, Memoir, Women’s Fiction, True Crime and Historical Fiction
  • Please email jaymi at theocbookgirl dot com if you have a question or suggestion or a book for me to review. I’ll be happy to consider. *Special priority will be given to authors who can provide a physical copy of the book and to authors who have a connection to Southern California.

Follow The OC BookGirl for book reviews, author interviews and bookish events in Southern California.
