Yes, I am very organized when it comes to reviews, and I do have rules, policies, and even long emails, with attached spreadsheets. This organization allows me to read and review for the majority of the requests that I receive. Organization and fairness is also why I have several "shelves." each BOOKSHELF is my to-be-read list. The VIP and Primary Bookshelves are ever-growing, and I do my best to provide the reviews in a timely manner. 


  • STANDARD VIP SHELF: REPEAT AUTHORS, authors represented by a REPEAT REPRESENTATIVE,  authors with a SPECIAL CODE, or from a showcase on my Author Blog.  (Order of posting may vary). Authors with multiple titles may have the titles in different positions, so I can be fair in posting reviews.  Authors new to the site can fill out a Stand-by form, but elect to have their title moved here for a a $20 donation plus the cost to cover the purchase of their Title. 

  • PRIORITY VIP BOOKSHELF: Author's titles will be added to the standard shelf, but can a donation of $25 plus the cost of their book can move their title to the "PRIORITY" VIP Shelf. (Donations can be made on the Welcome or Home Page using PayPal or transferred to me using my email address) The Priority Shelf (date dependent) is for a Title where the review that cannot be posted until a specific date (created so it doesn't delay other titles on the Priority VIP Shelf.

BLOG TOURS: Amy's Bookshelf Reviews doesn't participate in blog tours. However, the OFFICIAL Blog of Author Amy Shannon does. In some cases, a review is also
offered and will run to coincide with the date of the  blog tour on the other blog. 

PRIMARY BOOKSHELF: the list of books that have been from a first-time request from the author or author representative.  In order of request.  The PRIMARY BOOKSHELF has FOUR SHELVES (Top, Second, Third, Fourth). Accepting new requests for this shelf.

​QUICK RESPONSE CALENDAR: At the bottom of the page, shows the "quick response" or Release Date Requests for those who wish to have a review posted on release day. Authors can also elect to have an Express Release if their release date is at least 14 days or even 7 days away from the release date. (40 dollar and 50 dollar donations required respectively, see request page for more details. 

Stand-by Shelf: Not currently active. Goes active when the fourth shelf on the PRIMARY BOOKSHELF is full.


List items marked with #V refer to it being a verified purchase. Authors can purchase the title of the book by sending a gift card for at least the amount of the book prior to review using the email address .

Books can be gifted, but according to Amazon, it's NOT considered a verified purchase.


Amazon  Policy!

Verified purchases don't have a limit of how many reviews can be posted per week, but unverified purchases do, and this impacts how many reviews I can post per week. Unverified purchase reviews do NOT get deleted by Amazon, but reviews written incorrectly or those that are reported as abuse may. According to Amazon, reviews are only discussed with the reviewers. Unfortunately, if amazon flags a review, it gets removed and cannot be re-added. I always keep up with the policies of the sites where I post my reviews.

The only other thing that stipulates when I post my reviews is how fast or slow I read a story and move on to the next.

UPDATE (11/19) I will no longer post reviews on a Sunday UNLESS it is a scheduled release date.

I will also no longer post reviews on Easter, Thanksgiving EVE, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas EVE, Christmas Day, New Years Eve, New Years day, UNLESS it is a scheduled release date. 



I don't accept payment for reviews. My reviews are unbiased. I accept donations or gifts but not for exchange of a specific type of review.
