My policy on book reviews I write on Goodreads: I will generally not give ratings to books that could be considered to be in the same genres as mine -- the conflict of interest (or the perception thereof) is simply too strong.
Occasionally I will make an exception and rate a book that is already a major success (e.g., CLOUD ATLAS) such that my rating cannot possibly have any influence on its reception.
I will, however, promote by word and deed books I love by authors I love, regardless of their genre, because I don't believe the literary market is a zero-sum game.
