I reserve the right to review any books that I like, and to choose not to accept reviews for books that don’t sound appealing to me or that I don’t have time for. Reviews are guaranteed to be shared on my Facebook page, Twitter and Goodreads. Reviews will also be shared on Amazon or Barnes and Noble depending on where I’ve bought the book.


If you’re pitching, I’m willing to read for ages from middle grades up, though I prefer at least young adult books.

I like some romance, I love fantasy and contemporary fiction, and I adore female heroines and narrators. I do not read anything that could be defined as “gritty” or a thriller. I don’t like them. Please don’t pitch them to me. 

I will accept either physical galleys or e-galleys. If they’re e-galleys, they need to be openable in Adobe Digital Editions or Nook programs, so epub or mobi files. No PDF files will be accepted, because I find them obnoxious to read, and I don’t want that to affect my review of your book.

Please contact me at contact@candidceillie.com with a summary, book cover, and any other information you’d like me to know about the book you’d like me to review. I’m also willing to do author interviews, giveaways, and discussions, as long as I enjoyed the book.

If I cannot finish the book, due to just not caring about the plot, I will not review it and I will email you. If it is a content issue due to being problematic, I will review it and email you. I will mark it as a DNF on Goodreads in both cases.

I shouldn’t have to say this, but use my name and spell it correctly. It’s in the listing on The Indie View, it’s in my URL and it’s in my email. If you don’t do this, I’m not reading your book.

Disclosure Policy

I mostly review books of my own choosing from purchases and the library, but I also review books from Netgalley from time to time. I will note when I’m reviewing for a publisher or from Netgalley.

I have signed up to be an affiliate with Indiebound and Amazon, so all links to Indiebound and Amazon will be affiliate ones. If you buy through those links, I will make a small amount of money on that sale, but it will not add any to the cost of your product. It comes out of the company’s profits.

I also have signed up to run ads through the Riot Ad Network, which some of you might recognize as Book Riot’s ad company. Please let me know if any of these ads are horrible, and I’ll do my best to make sure they stay bookish. I will update this as this changes!
