About Me & Review Policy

Hello there, and what brings you to my little corner in the internet? Yep, that’s right, you want to know a little more ‘About Me’…

Well, I’m Sophia Ismaa, based in England, in my 20s, an avid reader of a variety of book genres, deeply analytical, whimsically (or charmingly as I sometimes like to believe) moody, annoyingly realistic, occasionally blunt, consummately passionate, at times bubbly, dear God I love finding out information, prone to a surplus of existential crises and apparently got the case of the Chandler Bing because I don’t know when to stop… writing. *exhale*

In my spare time, I love watching comedy shows like New Girl, listening to Bollywood songs and Game of Thrones soundtracks (although, I shouldn’t…), finding out information (well, I did say I love it), brainstorming for any and every thing, and I’m also currently studying.

I first started my blog as a way to share my thoughts and feelings on books I love and have finished reading. But, as time has progressed, I’ve realised that as much as I love books, I also want to share my thoughts on other important things from my own personal experience! And then I realised I want to share your stories too… I want to know the story of your life and everything that makes you who are now and what you long for too. This could be mental health, feminism, race, culture, CSA, neurodiversity and more.

So, as follows, my blog is about three things:

  1. Books: Reading, reviewing, promoting and discussing books and publishing. I will also now be extending an invite to authors for interviews. Please read review requests below if you have any enquiries.
  2. A Collection of Cultures: This is an interview series amplifying the voices of marginalised bloggers and non-bloggers from around the world. Please see above for topics I’m interested in sharing. 
  3. TV and Film: On occasion, I talk about shows and films I’ve loved or hated!

REVIEW REQUESTS

Please note, review requests for books will be closed for July and August as I will soon be building and implementing a new system for review requests. At the present moment, I am at capacity as I am currently working on a number of existing projects and studying. For all other enquiries, please expect a response within 5 business days.
