FTC regulations require you state if you've been given a book for review purposes
No, they do not.
At a conference several years ago, Mary Engle, then Associate Director of the Division of Advertising Practices at the Federal Trade Commission, Bureau of Consumer Protection, was asked:
Question: As a person who takes a book from a publisher, I do not have to put any type of disclosure on my blog?
Answer: No. You are independent. Your reviews are not endorsements under our endorsement guides. You're free to do so if you choose to, free to disclose you're getting a free book from the publisher. But in terms of, what I'm saying is, I don't see those kinds of reviews as endorsements, as advertising.
Whether you bought it, got it from the library, or were given it for your birthday doesn't seem as important, unless there is some aspect of how you got the book that you want to mention.
The only author who specifically asked me to not say I got the book for free was, in my opinion, dishonest regarding his book
He had no business asking you to do that. I'd ignore that request.
