The Blog + Policies

Hello, Chelly is a blog that mostly focuses on books but is also a creative outlet for me to share photos, the latest songs on my playlists, fashion, apartment decorating and just life in general.
About the Blog
I balance all sides of my blog by posting: 2-3 book reviews per week, a variety of monthly features (bookish and not!), and personal posts once per week. Plus there's the book tours I participate in, collaborations/Q&A with authors and I've organized various blog tours/celebrations to promote my favorite books.

Most of all, I love reading and enjoy sharing my thoughts. I'm not a professional reviewer or in the publishing industry. My reviews are honest, concise and personal and my criticisms are always constructive. I am lucky enough to receive ARCs from publishers and/or authors but this doesn't affect how I write my reviews and I'm very grateful to be a part of the community.

(I started this blog on 9/30/11. 4 years and still going strong!)

Review Policy
My reviews are a mix of Young Adult (primarily), Adult and New Adult and my favorite genres include, but are not limited to: Contemporary, Fantasy, Sci-fi, Paranormal, Dystopian and Romance.

If you're interested in having me review your book, please feel free to email me at hellochelly (at) gmail (dot) com. I accept ARCs, finished copies and e-books. I occasionally accept self-published books but only if I feel strongly about the content. If you don't receive a response, it means I'm currently not interested or unavailable. (But thank you for reaching out to me in the first place!)

As I mentioned earlier, my reviews are informal but thoughtful and honest. I always highlight what I enjoyed and any reservations I may have had. I tend to post ARC reviews within a month of publication unless the author or publisher has specified otherwise. In addition to reviews, I'm also open to author interviews, blog tours, guest posts and giveaways.

If you would like to me to review your book or have any questions, please feel free to email me at hellochelly (at) gmail (dot) com. I'm also on Netgalley (company/affiliation name: rachel_domingo), Goodreads and Twitter.
