My name is Nafiza Azad and this blog is a rather informal expression of my love for books. I am a grad student pursing a Masters in Children’s Literature from the University of British Columbia. I am at the thesis writing stage which means I’m significantly crazier all the time. I am also co-chairing this planning committee for the Biennial Children’s Literature Graduate Conference that my university hosts. The conference will be on May 3rd, 2014. If you are interested in knowing more about it, don’t hesitate to leave me a comment or send me an email.
I love books. I have read a lot of them. I own quite a few of them too. Not as many as I want to but still, enough to make me happy.
My email is fizzlicious at gmail dot com. Please do not add me to your mailing lists or newsletter recipient lists because that will make me unhappy and I can be rather fiendish when I’m unhappy. I currently do not have much free time but if you want to ask me to review a book, please consider these things:
The genre of books (usually, exceptions do occur) reviewed on Bibliophilic Monologues are:
I strictly do not accept any genre besides the ones listed to review. I also do not review self-published books. I will not respond to emails asking me to review books that are a genre besides the ones listed.
I accept physical ARCs and finished copies. My reviews are honest and critical. You are welcome to use my reviews on your sites as long as they are credited. I write honest reviews and if I do not like your books, I will say so and give you the reason why. Please keep in mind that I come from an academic background and my reviews will be critical. Please read a couple of reviews before you approach me for one. You may not like my style or the way I read a book. And that’s totally cool.
I also a more academic book blog along with some of my cohort from my graduate program. Check us out: thebookwars.wordpress.com
I will need at least 6 weeks between the book being sent and me putting up a review. I usually get the review written earlier but sometimes life gets busy. I don’t post on Amazon as a norm but I have no problem doing so if requested.
