Review Policies/FTC Disclaimer

(New)Review Policy.png

I am currently closed for book review requests & spotlights. I will not be responding to them at this time unless you are a publisher I have worked with before or it is a series I have previously reviewed.

*I am currently accepting tea samples and offering spotlights for tea shops. Please contact me if you would like to discuss this over a nice cuppa!

My posts contain affiliate links and I may receive a small commission for purchases made through them which will continue to help BVT stay online.

 All reviews and thoughts provided are unbiased and honest. All sources of review copies, samples and ARCs will be fully disclosed.

Tea Sample, reviews, pairings, and spotlights:

I currently accept all blends of tea for honest reviews and offer spotlights and guests posts on the blog for tea shops and retailers. If you are interested in being featured on the blog or with book pairings, please feel free to email me at or via my contact form.

Book Reviews:

I will accept physical books for review in either hardback or paperback. I will also accept audio-books and a very small amount of ebooks (my health requires limited screen time) for review.

All reviews are my sole property. I have the right to decline any review or material at my own discretion. The length of time it takes me to complete and review each title will vary. I do not promise a specific time frame for accepted review copies.

How I Review

All reviews are honest and unbiased. I currently do not use a rating system but will do so on retail sites that offer them. While it rarely happens, I retain the right to forfeit any title I accept should I feel I cannot continue. If I am unable to complete a title, I will send feedback accordingly. I do not review titles I have not completed

If you have a concern regarding a review I have posted, please feel free to contact me via email or the contact form. Do not do so via comments or social media.
