Book Review Policy

A Little Intro-
I started this book review blog, Misty's Corner Reviews, because of my love of reading and writing. I have always loved reading and sharing my opinions. So I thought, why not review books? Thank you for taking the time to check out my Book Review Policy.

I try to maintain a high turn around time; however, my to be read list (TBR) is a bit long, and I do have a personal life outside of reviewing books. I'm a trucker's wife and momma to three active kiddos; there's always something going on. This is why you'll usually find me up late at night or waking up super early to enjoy a little 'me' time, aka drinking coffee, reading, and reviewing books!

Book Review Policy-

*My TBR list primarily consists of NetGalley Advanced Reader Copies (ARCs) and Books-on-Tour Blog Tours. Although I also have direct author review requests, publisher reviews, and my "backlist tbr" that I'm trying to tackle! My list is in no particular order and is subject to change without notice due to unforeseen circumstances, to meet deadlines and/or upon personal discretion.*

My preferred genres include thrillers, suspense, mystery, women's fiction, contemporary, romance, and (as of recently) children's books.

*I am not currently accepting direct review requests.*

I do not respond to review requests via social media.
*Please see the section on Book Review Requests below.

Whenever I accept complimentary copies of books, they are received in consideration of my leaving an honest and unbiased book review and the posting of any applicable promotions (cover reveals, publication day posts, book blitz, etc.). I do not leave reviews for books that I feel will be less than three stars or do not finish. If this should happen, it will be communicated at my earliest convenience. There is no set timeline for completion unless previously discussed. I will try and fit titles in as best as I can in between my current TBR list.

All reviews are posted to Misty's Corner Reviews Blog, Facebook Page, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, GoodReads, BookBub, and any applicable retailers including, but not limited to, Amazon, Apple Books, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, Google Play, etc. Reviews are also posted to the direct website where the title was obtained.

Rating Legend-
5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ = Loved it! (recommend)
4 ⭐⭐⭐⭐ = Liked it! (recommend)
3 ⭐⭐⭐ = It's alright. (recommend)
2 ⭐⭐ = Didn't like it. (do not recommend)
1 ⭐ = Hated it. (do not recommend)

Book Review Requests <Not Open>

Once open for requests, I'd be honored to review your book.
My preferred file format is .mobi. I'm also willing to accept .epub or physical copy.

🌟If interested, please send an emailed request to with the following information:
  • Name
  • Email
  • Author/Publisher
  • Name of Book
  • Genre of Book
  • Number of Pages
  • Book Blurb
  • Release Date
  • Book Format to Be Sent
If I do respond within two weeks, please consider your request denied. I try to reply to all, but I'm also juggling my current and backlisted TBR along with my personal life. Please do not send a second request or a request through social media.

Thank you for taking the time to read my Book Review Policy. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask!
