It’s my policy to review books for the blog that have been published within the same calendar year. Typically my schedule fills up 6 months or more in advance.
I am currently accepting requests for Christian fiction and non-fiction with publication dates between September and December 2019.
To be considered for a guest spot or to have your book reviewed on Christian Shelf-Esteem, carefully read and complete this google form.

I use the star rating system when posting to Goodreads and Amazon because it is the culture of those sites and one of their primary functions.
However, I’ve moved away from a star-based review system on the blog. By doing so I hope to shift the focus away from the rating and back to the author’s originality, character development, and writing style.
⭐ Value System (I used in older posts)
5: I bestow this rating on books that are EXTRAORDINARY — they move me deeply, strike me as being unique for their genre, or stick with me long after I put them down.

Bottom Line: These are books I expect to read again and again.
4: I really enjoyed the book and/or thought it was VERY GOOD — the likelihood of me re-reading the book is favorable.
3: It was GOOD — I liked it/found it to be entertaining.
(This rating is not meant to be a slight against the author or the book.)
