Turtles all the way down || THAT OCD REP THO (+spoilery discussion section)

I think we can decide by now, at least, that John Green writes to MAKE US WEEP. Why I love John Green books: The writing style is so unique and just sucks me in I honestly don't think about anything else while reading his books The plots are always new and different and I love them I become the characters and— I just love his writing style, okay? So I knew that I would love Turtles all the way down going in.

5 reasons why you should update your old blog posts

I think all of us can agree that our initial blog posts sucked.* In two months, you might feel that a post you published TODAY sucks. At least, I'm sure I would. All of us becoming better the longer we do something, and it is VERY clearly seen in blogging. Most of us (including me) simply continue on blogging while changing our style, becoming better and soon there is significant difference between our current and old posts. We usually hope that it's never seen and let it be, buried under the new posts. But that is precisely what you SHOULDN'T do. And I'm here to tell you why.

Rambles #1

I don't do this often.

I don't open up the page to write a blog post with absolutely no planning. This "let your hands and heart take your words where they want to go" thing? I haven't done it for... probably several months now. I can't remember the last time I didn't know exactly what I wanted to blog about, or what blog posts I had to write, when I open a new draft.

And I've missed this. My title space is[...]

Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda || absolutely delightful

I read this book as part of the Dewey's annual readathon held on twitter and I LOVED IT.

I bought this at a second hand bookstore and planned to sell back (as I usually do with books I buy there) but after reading it? I CANNOT. I NEED IT WITH ME.

I would have fangirled so much to my friend via text,[...]

Windwitch || definitely better than Truthwitch but still not that good

I didn't enjoy Truthwitch (review here) but since I had bought had Windwitch already, I read it. It was better than Truthwitch, but I didn't find that much improvement.

The Plot

We pick up a little after the ending of Truthwitch, with some key events that happened in the middle time gap. I was pretty confused in the beginning because we saw the consequences of those events before knowing what exactly happened. And considering how confused I was in the first place, this just made me dislike the series more.

This book was all about Merik[...]

Top ten books I want my future kids to read || because they need to know all the AWESOMENESS

We read a lot of awesome books. And every year there are many more really great ones coming out. But all of us have at least a few books which we wish would become classics, or would live for long and be read by many others. This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic is Top ten books… Continue reading Top ten books I want my future kids to read || because they need to know all the AWESOMENESS

Behind the scenes // brainstorming and planning my blog posts

Blogging is not only hard, it takes a lot of your time as well. We bloggers have to market on social media, comment on posts by other bloggers, do collabs, take photos, work on our blogs and so much more.

But none of it would do any good without the MAIN part of blogging—blog posts. And these blog posts can't be random words strung together typed up in no sensible order. Blog posts have to be presentable.*

*I probably spend more time making my blog posts look good than myself.

I've been wanting to do a post on my blogging process for a long time now but I never stuck to one way to properly talk about it. After almost two years of blogging[...]

Without Merit || I… don’t know what to say

There's a reason Hoover is one of my favourite authors. Her books one-up the previous ones every single time.

Seeing through the eyes of Merit Voss, who is part of a very complicated* family, we are taken on a very gripping ride. I am very thankful we're given an "intro" bit with the family because I would be very confused otherwise.
Okay, I'll admit, I've been staring at the screen with my hands pressed to my cheeks for the past five minutes because I have absolutely NO CLUE how to go about this review. I AM SPEECHLESS. So forgive me if I'm all over the place[...]

Aaru || saving dead people in bytes of memory

I've read one other book by the author and this was very different from that. And I'm not a fan of this book.

The Plot

The book begins with Rose in the last stage of cancer, almost about to die. She's lost hope in any new treatments and her dad brings in another person to help her. Koren, her sister, requests her to try one last time and Rose agrees.

But she ends up dying.

A little later, the man comes back and shows them how they have managed to save a copy of Rose onto a super computer. Into a virtual world called Aaru. They scanned her mind and [...]

November bullet journal set up

I can't believe we're onto NOVEMBER already. Where has 2017 gone y'all?? Am I the only one freaking out? October was pretty chilled for me as I said in my wrap-up but it was busy with changing my blog name and other stuff. I didn't make dailies very often due to college and just not… Continue reading November bullet journal set up

October Wrap-up || BLOG NAME CHANGE + suspiciously chilled month + readathon

Last month was strangely peaceful for me. My mood ranged from average to good, I didn't have any tests (although I've got TWO sets of tests this month and I'm already panicking) and I met up with friends a few times. It's quite suspicious and therefore I'm gearing up to face the grueling month I… Continue reading October Wrap-up || BLOG NAME CHANGE + suspiciously chilled month + readathon
