My Answer:

When I first started blogging, I accepted review requests from anyone, but after being swamped with requests I decided to make a few changes. Now I only accept requests from agents and publishers, but I do make a few exceptions for authors I have previously worked with.

  1. It is so exciting to get a review request when you first start blogging; now I'm more particular about what I accept as I hate the idea of said review book sitting there longingly.

  2. Yeah...you have to start being a little bit picky when you start to get overwhelmed with review requests.

  4. I have gotten swamped too as I am sure all of us are. I have had to cut back a lot as well.

    Good idea to limit your reviews to agents and publishers. I have limited my review acceptances from authors as well but give them suggestions to find other bloggers if I can't help them.

    There just isn't enough time in the day. :)

    Have a great Friday and weekend.

  5. Well, I must be the only book blogger who doesn't write reviews, but I must confess I got really bored writing them. You can read my full answer here.
