Book Review Policies
Some of the books that I have reviewed on Book Chelle were obtained by myself personally, through a purchase, through a library, or a friend. Other books that I have reviewed were ARCs through publishers, authors, NetGalley or Edelweiss. Sometimes, I have reviewed books that I have received through a book tour. Links are to affiliates. Each review contains my genuine recommendations and opinions.
If you would like to send me a book for review, please bear in mind the following:
- I am happy to accept any ARC (advanced reading copy) and/or already released title for review.
- All published reviews will reflect my personal opinions and will post an honest review of the book.
- I am not a professional reviewer, but will conduct each review in a professional manner.
- I can and may select and review books that I am attracted to through the cover, synopsis, or reputation from the author or publishing house.
- I cannot guarantee to review any book I receive. For one thing, I may not be drawn to the book content after a few chapters, but I will let you know and/or return anything I have received.
- Please be clear with any instructions pertaining to the posting guidelines and return procedures that you may have. If anything, please communicate with me any concerns or questions you may have.
- I try to publish anywhere from 3-5 book reviews a week, although that is subject to change.
- I also publish reviews on Goodreads and Amazon.
