Policies

Welcome to A Book and a Latte! Thank you for taking the time to check out my policies.

Review Policy
My reviews are my own honest opinions. I post both positive and negative reviews. If I love a book, you will know it by my rave review. Negative reviews are written respectfully, with constructive criticism.

Authors & Publishers:
I will gladly accept ARCs, books, ebooks, and audiobooks from authors and publishers. I will also happily interview authors, host tours and/or giveaways to promote your book! I do require that I read the book first before agreeing to an author interview or guest post, unless I'm already familiar with your/the author's work

Please understand that I read for my own enjoyment. I am a book blogger with a passion for reading and desire to share my experience with others. I am not a book critic. My ratings are based upon how I feel while reading the book and are therefore completely subjective. I have no interest in writing an analytical review, simply because for me, a critical analysis would take all the fun out of reading.

A Book and a Latte is primarily a Young Adult literature blog. Currently, I'm most interested in the following YA genres:
  • Paranormal
  • Romance
  • Chick lit
  • Mystery/Thrillers
  • Contemporary Fiction
  • Dystopian
  • Action/Adventure
I am not usually interested in:
  • Nonfiction
  • Titles with religious undertones


Contest Policy
  • All contests are open to those 13 years of age or older, unless stated otherwise.
  • Winners will be notified by email after the contest has ended.
  • If Rafflecopter is used for the contest, then the winner's name will be announced in the widget.
  • Winners have 48 hours to respond, or another winner will be chosen.
  • I am not responsible for items lost or damaged in the mail.
  • I hold the right to end a contest at any time, without prior notice.
  • I hold the right to disqualify any entry as I see fit.
