Review Policy

Marie's Cozy Corner was created out of my love for books.  It is my hope that through this blog, I am able to better connect myself to the book blogging community as a serious book lover and reviewer, to share with others my love for reading, and to help promote the literary works of hard working authors.  

*I will send you a link to the published review as soon as it's live and the review will be honest and unscripted.

*I will follow up by posting a review on and other outlets.

*I will be fair and honest to you, if you ask me to read and review, I will do just that. I will be as honest and unscripted as possible in my review - good or bad.

*I retain the right not to review your book on this blog if I truly didn't like it. The idea is to review books for my readers to give them recommendations on what I hope they'd like to read, not books that I didn’t like.

*All books discussed and/or reviewed on Marie's Cozy Corner are done for my love of reading and sharing my thoughts in regards to the books I read. All reviewed books are either purchased by myself, borrowed from a fellow reader or library, occasionally they are won on another blog or offered by an author for read and review.  I also receive eARCs from NetGalley, as well as ARCs from Penguin/Berkley Prime Crime. 

*I am not monetarily compensated for spotlighting a book, an author, or providing an excerpt from a book. On the occasion that an author asks me to review a book, my review of the book will not be influenced by that author or by the author sending me a copy of the book. My reviews are honest, unscripted and uninfluenced even by my personal preference for a particular author. I take each book as it comes and will tell you exactly what I think. 

If you have any questions regarding the policies of this blog, please contact me at I will be more than happy to answer any of your questions.
