All reviews on Caryn, the Book Whisperer are solely the thoughts and opinions of the reviewer. If we feel that we would not be able to do a review justice based on our opinion of the book, we would contact the publisher or author first prior to posting the review. It is never our intent to do harm to the sales of a book or reputation of an author.

We do not accept payment for our reviews. In exchange for a book, we will provide an honest review.

Along with reviews being posted on the blog, most reviews will also be shared on Goodreads, Facebook, and Twitter.

Thank you and we look forward to working with you to get your book in the hands of more readers.
