What the New CMA Guidelines Mean for Book Bloggers & How to Properly Disclose ARCs

Greetings friends, and welcome to another guide here on Reader Voracious! This one has been percolating in the back of my mind for a few weeks awhile now, and while it isn’t the most ~attractive~ topic out there I think it is incredibly important to talk about: how to properly disclose as book bloggers.
