Review Policy

We are not accepting ARCs at this time. If you are looking for a similar blog that is accepting ARCs, please email with information about the book. Alethea will email you back if there is a likely match!


For the most part, we purchase or borrow all of the books reviewed on this site. We do receive some ARCs from publishers or Netgalley and all of our reviews are our honest opinions. We will note in our reviews when a book has been received as an ARC.


We do sometimes use Amazon and other affiliate links. This means that, should you purchase an item after clicking on an affiliate link, we sometimes will receive a small commission from it. Any funds we receive from affiliate links go back into giveaways and prizes for the blog (mostly to pay for postage).

ARC Winner Policy

If you accept/win an Advance Reader Copy (ARC) from us, you swear to abide by The Rule: ARCs may not be resold! It's yours, or if you must pass it on, please give it to a friend, book blogger, educator, or librarian who can give it a good home. :)
