Wayward Kitsune is currently not running any advertisements. For those who are interested, please check back always.

Though I purchase books for reading, there are times that I receive/request digital Advance Reviewer's Copy from publishers or galley sites. These are in no way paid and I am very much thankful for the reading opportunity.

Once read and reviewed, e-ARC copies will be deleted from my laptop or Kobo. So please refrain from asking for a copy. It's not only unethical but also hurts the authors in the most painful way.

The Wayward Kitsune is a personal blog that mostly features books, book reviews, and whatever stuff that interests WK. She is not in any way receiving commission or profits from mentioning/featuring/reviewing books on the blog.

Most of the books that WK reviews are personally purchased or gifted or borrowed (yeah right, if our local library has any hopes of becoming a decent one) From time to time, she receives digital Advance Reviewer's Copy from publishers, Netgalley, Edelweiss and other galley sites. These are not sponsored unless otherwise stated.
