Review/Promotions Policy

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

👉👉👉Picture books, Children/MG, GN/Comics/Manga.👈👈👈

⛔⛔⛔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.
⛔⛔⛔While I love picture books with a message or are meant to be inspirational, I am for now closing the review request for those kind of picture books. For now I just want something that is silly, funny, sweet, cute.
⛔⛔⛔I am no longer accepting books about the climate crisis/change or environment crisis. Or books about eco warriors. It is an important topic, but for my own mental health and the fact that you already cannot avoid doomsday stuff everywhere, I am chosen to stay away from books like this, at least some rest in my head.
⛔⛔⛔I will never accept any books “written” by an AI. Or “drawn” (I think stolen works better) by an AI. Thanks.


📖 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 in +/- 8 weeks. Of course if you have a specific date in mind for the review, please let me know and I will see if I can plan it in my schedule.

📖 If I write a review about the book I received (either from publishers, tour organisers, or 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.

📖On this blog I will only do English reviews and bookish posts. If you are interested in my Dutch reviews be sure to check out my Dutch blog.

📖 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 or .de. 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 or put it in mini-libraries in the area around me. 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. Make sure the materials fall into the range of what I review. Also, please provide materials for the post. I don’t mind adding some bits of my own, but I prefer having the materials mostly ready.
NOTE: I am not doing guest posts.


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.


 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.
