Review Requests: Accept Or Reject?

I have been wondering about this for a while and I want to know.  How do you, as a book blogger, decide which review requests to accept and what to reject?  This has been on my mind for a while and I want to hear what you guys think regarding this topic.


For me, accepting or rejecting a review request depends on the type of book(s) that is being requested, the time frame (if there is any) that I need to have the review posted by, and how many other requests I have pending at the moment.  Also, it depends on whether or not I am too busy with my own stuff and have enough time to read the book(s).
