I woke up at 1 am this morning, studied till I dropped, wrote an exam, submitted two portfolios, came home and did all the work. PHEW. It has been an exhausting day and I can't wait to just fall into bed. . . . I recently read #CityOfBrass by the BRILLIANT S.A.Chakraborty and I am COMPLETELY OBSESSED. This book was everything I hoped it would be and more, defied my EVERY EXPECTATION and I cannot WAIT to read #KingdomOfCopper. I saw this book all the way back in May on the shelves at @bahrisons_booksellers and I simply couldn't resist picking it up. . . . Seriously, you guys, READ THIS BOOK. IT WILL BE A NEW FAVOURITE. . . . QOTD: Please give me some brilliant fantasy recommendations! I NEED TO READ MORE 📚 . . . #harpercollins #bookstagramindia #unitedbookstagram #bookrecommendation #bookreviews #sachakraborty #harpercollinsinternational #bookblogger
ISN'T THE COVER OF #THESURFACEBREAKS simply stunning? I've been OBSESSED with both the storyline and the cover ever since I heard of it and I was so glad to finally pick it up a few days ago. . . . There was a lot I really liked about the book, including @oneilllou's writing style, and the last chapter of the book which was 🤩🤩. . . . I've written up a detailed review on the blog but a lot of you have asked me if I'd recommend this book, and my answer is yes! I'd say read this first, and then DEFINITELY read both of the author's other YA books - Asking for It and Only Ever Yours, both of which are on my all time favourites list. . . .

The World will be made and re-made by dreamers. . . . It's finally (almost) time for Sarah J Maas' #KingdomOfAsh and I CANNOT WAIT! I remember looking it up on Goodreads only to see that the book is 1,008 pages long and I'm actually a little shocked. And nervous. And scared. . . . I can't believe it's almost over. . . . QOTD: Who is your favourite Sarah J Maas' character?
TWO POSTS IN TWO DAYS! I might be on a roll, but let's not jinx it. . . . Anyway, life update from yesterday: (and the Impossible Day TM) 🌟 The professor who I had to submit all my 3-D animation work to FORGOT ABOUT IT AND DID NOT SHOW UP. I literally spent all day working on it and then pulled an all nighter to study for my final and I AM SO MAD UGH. 🌟 The final exam surprisingly went off well, though. I think. I was sleep deprived and mad and suddenly from nowhere, I was writing about the arbitrary nature of censorship and why it infringed on the fundamental right to speech and honestly? I'm just glad I'll never have to actually see the answer script. . . . ⛵I recently dove into @alexandrachristowrites' #ToKillAKingdomn which an an ABSOLUTELY amazing book that is filled with SASS, SIRENS, PIRATES, KINGDOMS, POLITICS, SACRIFICE and most of all, what it means to be human. It was SUCH A FUN BOOK TO READ, and I rarely ever say that. It kept me hooked at a time when I'm not finding much time to read and honestly, GO PICK THIS ONE UP. . . . ⛵Talk to me about anti-heroes! Who are you favourite ones and do you think they're underrated?
My final exams start tomorrow and I haven't started studying because I have to make a 3-D animation submission and I'm NOWHERE near finishing and I'm only mildly freaking out so I decided to take an Instagram picture 🤣. I amuse myself sometimes. . . . I recently dove into #LoveTakeTwo by @saranya_rai that the lovely humans at @penguinindia sent my way! I loved that there was MORE to the book that what the blurb told us, and you can read my full review on my blog, link in bio. . . . Welp, my 3D Model has finished rendering and I have to go now. Wish me luck for finals week(s)😭 . . . QOTD: Who are your favour Indian authors?
Hello all of you lovely humans!

📚Hello everyone *waves* It's been an absolute hectic three weeks and I'm so glad to be back. I've barely done any reading, but one of the three books I had to pick up since I last posted was Lifelike by @misterkristoff, which a stunning, jaw-dropping MARVEL of a book that left me SHOCKED.

I'M SUCH A HUGE @hollybourneya FAN! I've read almost all of her books and I couldn't resist picking #AreWeAllLemmingsAndSnowflakes off my TBR last week despite drowning under all kinds of work! . .

My full review is on the blog (link in bio) if you need more convincing! . . A huge thank you to @usborneya for sending me this beautiful ARC.

#TheLastWatchmanOfOldCairo is a review copy from @prhinternational #partner . . It's been a week since I last posted here and a very hectic one at that (phew!) and there are more deadlines just coming my way this week! *Cue mental picture of me struggling to keep up* . . I managed to sneak in some reading time this weekend when I FINALLY dove into #TheLastWatchmanOfOldCairo and I fell in love with the writing and the characters. This is a multi-generational story told in three different centuries and it's such a stunning read! The full review is up on my blog, if you're interested! . .

🌌🦄BOOK REVIEW 🦄🌌 . . THINGS I LOVED ABOUT THIS BOOK AT FIRST SIGHT: A) A BROWN GIRL ON THE COVER B) AN AMBITIOUS, HILARIOUS, BROWN TEENAGER ON THE COVER C) THE FACT THAT UNDER THE COVER, INSIDE THIS BOOK, THERE WERE GOING TO BE A TON OF ILLUSTRATIONS D) CAN WE PLEASE JUST APPRECIATE THAT WE HAVE BROWN PEOPLE ON COVERS? THANK YOU. THINGS I LOVE ABOUT THIS BOOK AFTER READING IT: A) DD: DD is an absolutely amazing main character. At thirteen, and at the start to her teens, I loved the drama, her slight naivety, her clear and slightly snarky way of looking at the world and the fact that she was so self-confident and ambitious. She was a hilarious narrator, especially as she spoke about her sister and mother and I honestly wish I had her spunk and talent when I was her age. B) THE ILLUSTRATIONS: The illustrations in this book really brought it all together! I LOVED the Holiday Checklist, the Comparison of Heels and A Guide to Silly Ramp Walks. They all made me smile, and just the small touches to each page by Tasneem Amiruddin were so well thought out and executed! And that’s it, you know. I don’t want to bore you by droning on for forever, but this book was a quick, cute, diverse read that made me smile and shake my head in adoration. Definitely a recommended read for the Indian pre-teen to teen age group! 4.5 stars. . . A HUGE THANK YOU to @harpercollinsin for my review copy! . .

QOTD: Talk to me about your favourite vacation! I absolutely love going on them and I'm ALWAYS waiting for the next one. If love to hear all about your favourite vacation memories and where! . . I finally got around to reading this book and the start of this week, and I finished last night. It was a riveting, poignant and harsh read that I HIGHLY recommend. Amber Smith's writing is beautiful and well, this is just one of those books that you have to read to truly understand. No amount of words can do it justice. . . I have huge submissions coming up next week, and I REALLY should be working on them, especially my 3D Animation ones which will undoubtedly result in all nighters but well... I just haven't. Here's to hoping today is a more productive day? . . #Bookstagram #bookstagramindia #unitedbookstagram #ya #youngadult #CurrentlyReading #bookshelf #reader #alwaysreading #bookdragon
