Complimentary Books

The books reviewed on Sarah’s Book Shelves have been purchased by me prior to review unless otherwise stated in the post as being received from an author, publisher or company. I never receive any monetary compensation in return for a review and agree to receive a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest assessment.
