Hello #bookstagram! It's been over a month since I've posted on here - there's just been no motivation to do so and I'm perfectly content interacting with all of my lovely bookish humans through my stories and DMs but I couldn't resist posting a picture of @bhathenatanaz's gorgeous debut novel #AGirlLikeThat because it's been on my wishlist for FOREVER and I am FINALLY currently reading it and I love it so much. . . I hope I'll post regularly now but thanks to all of you who stuck with me through this month ~ I truly appreciate it. . . QOTD: How many books have you read so far this year?!
Thank you so much for the chance @bleeves_ to win one of these SPECTACULAR Bleeves. I absolutely love that you are the one of the only (and the best) sleeve companies in India, always looking for new designs to keep us book dragons happy. I also love that you are always interested in what we want to buy and are always there to year us out. Fingers crossed that I win this giveaway!
Earlier this week, I read the BRILLIANT #DaVincisTiger that @harpercollinsin sent me and I FELL IN LOVE! This story is all about the first solo painting that Leonardo Da Vinci did in the 1400s during the Renaissance in Florence, and it's the one that made him famous. It's told from the point of view of the muse of his painting and I've never read anything so wonderful! . . QOTD: Cheesecake or Ice Cream?
I absolutely love ALL of these beautiful books that @penguinindia sent me a few weeks ago. . I've only read Adriana Mather's How To Hang A Witch so far, but I absolutely loved the Salem Witch Trials background and the curse and I can't wait to read more of these book! . If you're following my stories, you'll know that I'm currently reading Leigh Bardugo's Language of Thorns and that it's been absolutely amazing so far! . . Check out my story to see some illustrations in the book and I'm sure you'll fall in love! . . QOTD: What will you be reading this week?
I've had the pleasure of reading two of @sarahcrossanwriter's books in my life and both of them have been told in verse. . . I never thought I'd be a fan of verse until I flipped open ones written by Sarah Crossan and I COULDN'T GET ENOUGH OF THEM. Her writing is heart wrenching and brilliant and these are two of my FAVOURITE books, that I highly recommend you get your hands on because they're just that good. . . Thank you so much @bloomsburyindia for both of these copies!
The lovely people at @glasstownent sent me this BEAUTIFUL ARC of Everless because I won a giveaway on Twitter and it's honestly one of the PRETTIEST COVERS I'VE EVER SEEN! . . Everless is a fantasy novel where Time is the currently and I've left the synopsis down below for you. It sounds AMAZING and I honestly can't wait to start reading it! . . Description: In the kingdom of Sempera, time is currency—extracted from blood, bound to iron, and consumed to add time to one’s own lifespan. The rich aristocracy, like the Gerlings, tax the poor to the hilt, extending their own lives by centuries. No one resents the Gerlings more than Jules Ember. A decade ago, she and her father were servants at Everless, the Gerlings’ palatial estate, until a fateful accident forced them to flee in the dead of night. When Jules discovers that her father is dying, she knows that she must return to Everless to earn more time for him before she loses him forever. But going back to Everless brings more danger—and temptation—than Jules could have ever imagined. Soon she’s caught in a tangle of violent secrets and finds her heart torn between two people she thought she’d never see again. Her decisions have the power to change her fate—and the fate of time itself. Fans of Victoria Aveyard, Kendare Blake, and Stephanie Garber will devour this lush novel's breathtaking action, incredible romance, and dangerous secrets.
I have an exam tomorrow and I should PROBABLY START STUDYING, but I'm currently watching Grey's Reruns and I can't bring myself to stop. HELP ME SOMEONE? . . I have @rebeccakbarrow's debut novel on my TBR pile and I can't wait for the day to get to it. I've heard it will break my heart and I'm just waiting to be in the right mood to have that happen. . . What are you guys currently reading and watching?
I just finished my first final exam a few hours ago and my head is STILL aching from it. Why do we need exams again? I have never in my life understood them. . . I came home after, watched a Grey's rerun on TV and then came up to continue with my #currentread, How To Hang A Witch and also try to finish up my review of #TowerOfDawn but I've been thoroughly unable to do either. Sighh. I guess it's just one of THOSE days. . . I got the chance to read an ARC of Girls Made Of Snow And Glass from Macmillan International and despite the fact that it had a VERY slow pace, this was a FEMINIST LGBT FANTASY RETELLING OF SNOW WHITE. That alone deserves for you to give it a read but BE WARNED the pace is REALLY slow. . . QOTD: What's your favourite TV show? -- Mine has been Grey's. I love a LOT if shows but this one has remained my constant.
So. I read a book. No, scratch that, I read THE BOOK. And it was one of the BEST books I've read all year and I honestly CANNOT stop thinking about it. . . @hollybourneya's latest novel, #ItOnlyHappensInTheMovies is COMPLETE AND UTTER PERFECTION in every sense of the word. It's awkward, hilarious, real and FILLED WITH FEMINISM, cute boys, and girl power. it Only Happens In The Movies analyses romance movie tropes from a feminist POV and it is ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT. . . Equally important, THIS BOOK HAS POPCORN ON THE COVER? LIKE PUTTING FOOD ON A COVER IS THE BEST AND CAN ONLY BE TESTAMENT TO HOW GREAT A BOOK IS. . . Thanks to @usborneya for my review copy that I LOVE SO MUCH UGH. . . THIS IS THE BOOK, ALL OF YOU. THE ONE YOU DIDN'T EVEN KNOW YOU NEEDED. But it's here, and it's got popcorn so now you HAVE to read it. . So. Talk to me. What's your favourite movie snack? Your favourite movie tropes? Have you read Holly Bourne's books? What do you think of them?
Hello Fellow Bookish People! SO. I SLAYED THE DRAGON THAT IS #TOWEROFDAWN just yesterday and I am SO IN LOVE WITH IT. I honestly can't wait for the finale this May. . . This Mortal Coil, which I read last month, by debut author Emily Suvada is one of the BEST 2017 RELEASES AND YOU NEED IT NOWW. It releases November 2nd in both the US and the UK and GAAH. IT TRULY IS THE BEST. . . This is about biohacking and a virus that kills people in the most brutal way possible and it's set in this future dystopia with a badass hacker as a main character and a black ops soldier as her love interest and IT IS EVERYTHING YOU NEED, THAT YOU NEVER KNEW YOU WERE LOOKING FOR. . . I though of reading today but my stress to actually do work and not procrastinate won over and I've been working on my portfolios all day. #ProductiveDay . . SO. What are you lovelies currently reading? What's the size of your TBRs? What have you been DYING to read but haven't been able to just yet? I'd love to chat with you guys!
Hi #bookstagram! . My second post in as many days! (Claps for self) . I JUST realised that although I read this BEAUTIFUL book all the way back in May, I didn't post a single picture of it on my feed and that's a crime indeed. . . A Court Of Wings And Ruin was probably one of my most anticipated reads of the year, and while it was a GOOD book, nothing will ever reach the love I felt in A Court of Mist and Fury for Feyre, Rhys and the rest of the gang. I'm very excited for the novella that will be told in both Feyre and Rhys' POVs though. . . If you've been following my story, you'll know that I've been reading the BRILLIANT #TowerOfDawn which @bloomsburyindia sent me. I feel like I've been transported back to when I first fell in love with SJM's writing because this book is THAT GOOD. It's slow paced, and it takes the time to get to develop it's characters and I love it so much. . . #TowerOfDawn is getting me so excited for May 2018 when the final book in the #ThroneOfGlass series releases. I'll be sobbing and elated so please bare with me when the time comes. . . Oh: P.S: the candles are some of the birthday gifts I got from my AMAZING BFFs @epicrainbowcandy and @notsoplainvanilla from @whisperingflames . TALK TO ME YOU GUYS! Are you a Sarah Maas fan? Who's your favourite character? What's your favourite book? What upcoming books are you excited for? I'd love to hear from all of you!
Hi #bookstagram. It's been a really long while since I posted, and I'd like to apologize to all of you. . I've just been really demotivated to post on here because the interaction (I'm not even talking about likes and comments) but just with other Bookstagrammers in general has gone down with everyone so focused on trying to beat the algorithm . Basically, I miss the old Bookstagram where I actually wanted to post everyday because it was all fun and not at all about follower counts and likes. . Anyway, into some book talk! Here are two of the GORGEOUS books @harpercollinsin sent me last month. I've already finished reading Jessi Kirby's #TheSecretHistoryOfUs which I totally loved! My Review is on the blog, so please do check it one. . TELL ME WHAT YOU GUYS HAVE BEEN UPTO? What are you reading? What should I be reading? What are you dying to read in 2018?
How pretty does #HowToDisappear by @sharonhussroat look?! It's this gorgeous white and simple hardcover with a super interesting storyline and I can't wait to dive into it sometime this week! . . This was another book from the lovely folks over at @harpercollinsin that I can't wait to start reading! . QOTD: What was the last book you fell in love with?
I've got family in town and it's all been SO SO BUSY. . . It was also coincidentally the PERFECT time to dive into #YouBringTheDistantNear by the BRILLIANT @mitaliperkins which is all about the lives of three generations of Indian American women. Reading this book truly felt like finding a home within the pages of a book and I loved it. . . The full review for the book is #OnTheBlog and I hope you pick this book up and LOVE it. . . QOTD: Favourite Indian Character In A Book?
My shelf is overflowing with Hardcovers all thanks to @harpercollinsin and all of them look SO SO GOOD! . . I've already read #RamonaBlue but I am so excited for #HowToDisappear and #YouDontKnowMeButIKnowYou because they sound so good and they LOOK SO PWETTY! . QOTD: What are you currently reading?!
