Just this Monday I got a box full of gorgeous books from @penguinindia and I was OVER THE MOON. . . My #currentread, the first from the box is the amazing #OnceAndForAll by @sdessen that I ABSOLUTELY LOVE! The wedding business, Louna, the Ethan Flashbacks, the fast that bits of Sarah's previous books always overlap into her latest one (Colby, Abe's Bikes and Auden & Eli from #AlongForTheRide) and also William and Louna's mother have been so PERFECT so far. . . I read my first Sarah Dessen when I was 12, and she has since then, been my favourite contemporary YA author. Her books are brilliant, her writing so subtle but effective and I'm so lucky to be reading this book right now so thank you @penguinindia QOTD: Have you read Sarah Dessen books? Which one is your favourite?
The LOVELY @bloomsburyindia sent me this gorgeous copy of #PartyGirlsDieInPearls by @therealplumsykes that I finished reading over the long weekend and I FELL IN LOVE WITH IT. . . Filled with Glitz, Glamour and Murder set in the 1980's in Oxford and it was such a fun murder mystery to read! My full review is #OnTheBlog and I hope you go and read it. Also, pick up this book because it is AWESOME! . . QOTD: What's your favourite genre?
My #currentread is the gorgeous (GORGEOUS I TELL YOU) #BeforeSheIgnites by @unicornwarlord and I am in love. . . #BeforeSheIgnites is the first book in the #FallenIsles trilogy and releases this September. It's set in a mystical world with dragons and badass female characters and it was so easy to slip into and I can't wait to read more of this book and the trilogy. . . Thank you SO MUCH @unicornwarlord for sending me a copy of this book. QOTD: What are you currently reading?
QOTD: What are you currently reading? . . The lovely folks at @usborneya sent me this stunning copy of @hollybourneya's #AndAHappyNewYear which is the conclusion to Lottie, Amber and Evie's story almost a year after it ended. . . This series is filled with feminism, strong female friendships, love, hilarious moments and it's JUST SO EMPOWERING and you absolutely need to read it.
QOTD: Do you prefer Netflix or Amazon Prime? . . I recently read (gasp) another backlist title, which is Jessica Khoury's #TheForbiddenWish which is about a female genie who falls for Alladin and all the badassery that she is as a Character. . . It was certainly a very different take on the Alladin fairytale and if you like Retellings, I recommend adding this one to your TBRs!
ARE YOU GUYS #GameOfThrones watchers? Did you see the latest episode? . . This is the only books in the #SongOfFireAndIce series that I own but I intend to rectify that very soon. The Game of Thrones show is the ONLY reason I love Mondays and well, I'm also sad that there are only three episodes left and then after that, just one season. I don't know what I'll do when it's over, to be honest. . .
QOTD: Do you prefer fantasy or contemporary novels? . . I've been shocking myself recently and reading books that I HAVE ACTUALLY BOUGHT instead of review copies and Virginia Boecker's #TheWitchHunter is one of them. . . This book was a really nice, if not amazing read and II'l definitely read the sequel sometime. When my TBR allows me. . . I'm currently deep into my college work so see you on the other side.
I recently got THIS SURPRISE bookmail from @penguinindia and this book has been described as a dark and witty Indian fantasy. . . It's my next read as soon as I finish my coursework and my current read and I'm so excited for it. . . I apologize for not posting regularly - I was sick and in the middle of a round of exams and I just had no time. College has also started dumping work on us and I'm not sure how much I'll be around but I'll try my best! 💙💙 . .
#OnTheBlog is my review of @hollybourneya's #WhatsAGirlGottaDo which is an absolutely brilliant, empowering book that will make you sit up and think and fall totally in love. It'll also make you want to take out your own megaphones and call out the inequality we are in your everyday lives and it made me cry ACTUAL HAPPY TEARS (Yes, they're REAL) . . I COULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS BOOK ENOUGH, but if you need further convincing, a full and detailed review is #OnTheBlog (link in bio) . . Thank you so much @usborneya for the copy. I absolutely loved it! . . . . QOTD: What was your last five star read?
QOTD: Favourite #DiverseBooks? . . . The ABSOLUTELY amazing people at @rocktheboatuk sent me this perfect copy of @verynatalieanderson's #CityOfSaintsAndThieves which I read over the weekend and totally fell in love with. . . If I could describe City of Saints and Thieves in one word, if would be haunting. . . Set in Africa, this book captures the raw, honest and pained voice of a teenage refugee planning her revenge for her mother’s murder so perfectly, it’ll leave you stunned and desperate for more. . . If I’m being honest, I didn’t even EXPECT to love this book so much – the powerful voice, the backdrop and the plot ensnared me and left me wanting either a sequel, 200 extra pages in the book or ANYTHING else that the lovely Natalie Anderson writes.
I'm so sad to see that this will be the last week @yaandwine's #ARCstravaganza and so I just HAD to post a picture of MY MOST PRECIOUS ARC that the ABSOLUTELY wonderful, gem of a person @unicornwarlord sent me! . . #BeforeSheIgnites is a diverse fantasy novel that has DRAGONS in it (can you really ask for anything more) and the book releases September! . . Get your pre-orders in because Jodi is hosting an AMAZING preorder campaign and also, YOU NEED THIS BOOK IN YOUR LIVES. . . QOTD: Favourite Mythical Creature?
The amazing people over at @harpercollinsin sent me this WONDERFUL hardcover of @amyzhangbooks' #ThisIsWhereTheWorldEnds that I read and loved. You can find the full review on my blog but Amy's writing was SO BEAUTIFUL AND POWERFUL and it tied this whole book together. . . . This book also contained journal entries from the protagonist that looked like the gorgeous illustrations in the picture and well, it was a complete package of a book. . . Trust me, you need to add this one to your wishlists. I buddy read this book with the amazing @fangirlalert07_ ♥️ . . QOTD: Do you do a personal or a bullet journal?
The lovely people at @usborneya have sent me the WHOLE of @hollybourneya's #SpinsterClub series and I just had to take a picture of all three books in all their glourisness. . . If you're looking for friendship, feminism and growing up, THIS SERIES IS FOR YOU.

I was in Singapore over the summer where I saw this BEAUTIFUL copy of @skippingstones' #AStudyInCharlotte and I knew that I just had to get it! . . What's it about? Oh, only the FEMALE descendant of Sherlock and the male descendant of John Watson together in HIGH SCHOOL solving mysteries and murders. . . If that's not the best thing ever, I don't know what is! . . QOTD: Benedict Cumberbatch or Robert Downey Jr as Sherlock?
