Review/Promotions Policy

Review/Promotions Policy

Mimi o Sumaseba, GIF, Ghibli, Studying, Books

Mehsi, or the Twirling Book Princess, is currently accepting review copies for the following:

*English: Picture books, Children/MG, GN/Comics/Manga.

NOTE: I am not reviewing any more books about Corona, not about the virus, but also not about anything surrounding it. It is just too much at the moment. 

* I will try to write a review for every book I will receive, however, they might not all be high stars, so don’t expect 4 or 5 stars only. If I dislike a book, I will be honest about it. If, in any case I really don’t like a book, and can’t get through it (I will of course always try to give it a few chances!), I will contact you and be sure to tell you why I couldn’t finish it. But please keep this in mind when you contact me.

* If you give me a book to review I will be sure to read and review the book within 8 weeks. Of course if you have a specific date in mind for the review, please let me know and I will accommodate to that date.

* If I write a review about the book I received (either from here or on Netgalley), there will be a line above the review that says something like: I received this book from [insert what applies] in exchange for an honest review.

*I review in Dutch and English.

* On my blog I will review books for the following age groups (which some also see as genres): Young Adult, New Adult, and Middle Grade/Children. I will also review Graphic Novels, Comics, and Manga. Of course, occasionally you will see some other genres pop up as I do read more than just those genres/age groups. 😉

*Most of the books I review are my own books from my own collection, or books I get from one of my libraries. Yes, I have multiple libraries that I visit. A very small part of my books is from Netgalley or from a publisher. The latter will be specifically mentioned.

*I post my reviews on this blog, but also on Goodreads. And should it be required, I can also post on Barnes&Noble. I can post on Not the other ones, since I cannot buy anything there and you need a 50 (insert currency) amount spend. I will also promote the book review on my Twitter (@Mehsi_Hime). If you have specific sites you would like to see the review on, please let me know and I will see if I can add the review to those sites.

*Once I have finished reading a book and reviewed it (this applies to my own books), if it is good (4.5 stars or higher), I will keep it. And if it is lower than 4.5 stars, I will donate it to a charity or a friend. In case of eBooks, I delete those. And of course Library Books get brought back to their respective libraries. 😉

Regarding Promotions:

I am also open to promotional book tours/book blitzes/cover reveals. Please make sure that the material you want me to promote falls within my genres/age groups (so YA/NA/MG/Childrens/Manga/Graphic Novels). Thank you!

Important Note:

If your request for either review or promotion isn’t what is specified here I will ignore the mail. Sorry, I have been getting quite a couple of mails from all sorts of things and it became too much to reply to them all. Also, please don’t mail me multiple times with the same request. Make sure you check before mailing me again, and again.

 Small Disclaimer

All my reviews and ratings are my own, personal opinion on a book. I write reviews because I love to express my opinion and let my fellow book lovers and friends know what I thought of the books I read. It isn’t done to undermine or hurt authors or to hate on them and/or their books. Please remember this. Thanks.
