Advertisements and Affiliation
Cuddlebuggery Book Blog uses the third-party Blogads service to help cushion site costs.

Our advertisements in no way affect our reviews and opinions on this site.
Sometimes Cuddlebuggery receives ARCs (Advanced Reader Copies) of books for review. Regardless, we always give our honest thoughts. We do not charge for reviews, nor do we receive discounts, gifts or favors in exchange for a review. ARC reviews will be tagged as such (“ARC” tag). All other books are either acquired by personal purchase or checked out from our public libraries.
Advanced Reader Copies
At Cuddlebuggery, we believe ARCs are for marketing and promotional purposes only. Therefore when we are finished with our ARCs we never sell them, but instead do one of the following:
- Host a giveaway on Cuddlebuggery to help build buzz for the title
- Pass it along to another blogger/reviewer for a potential review
- Shelve it if it was personalized to us
