How I Choose My Books Tag

Because obviously everyone is interested in how I choose books to read.* I saw this tag over at Ash's blog For The Love Of Books Blog and found it super nice so I decided to do it. I've been reading way more books this year and I'm really happy? I'm making such good progress on my Goodreads Reading Challenge for this year. I've also been liking more of the books that I read than before so obviously I need to document how I'm doing this. More for myself to refer back later than anything else...

While You Were Sleeping // Kdrama review

I am obsessed. Completely obsessed. I wasn't really interested in watching Korean dramas before but after a LOT of insistence from my friend (thanks Sabs!) I finally agreed to watch it, and I fell in love with it. I binged this show in two days and did NOTHING else. I don't think I could have even if I tried because it completely drew me in and I could not stop watching it...

Crash and Burn || the plot twists are A+

The first time I read a Lisa Gardner book was in 7th grade (I think?). I was in the library and I was checking out the mystery/thriller section. I randomly picked The Other Daughter because it drew me. And I LOVED IT. I even wrote a review about it last year or so because it deserves every good review it can get.

So I was in the bookstore and I took this book the second I saw it, no hesitations. I want to read all of her books in time.

Note: I read this book as a standalone without knowing that it's part of a series and had no problem, so reading in order isn't required.

From Lukov With Love || hate-to-love romance

Note: Chronologically, this book comes after Dear Aaron, which I found out only while reading Dear Aaron but it does not affect reading this book first in any way. 

I was cruising the New Adult new release section on Goodreads when I saw this and it drew me because it's main character is a figure skater. After I saw the movie Ice Princess, I've become interested in stories about figure skaters so I immediately got this book...

The Hate U Give || just, wow.

If you've been in the online book community for even a little while, you'll know just HOW POPULAR this book is. It was #1 on the NYT Bestseller list for over 50 weeks. And it deserves all the hype.

The Plot

Starr has been living in two worlds—her neighbourhood and the uptown school she goes to. But her life turns upside down when she witnesses her best friend Khalil getting shot by a police officer, without a reason...

10 Books I Loved But Probably Won’t Reread

It's more likely that if you like a book, you'll want to reread it at some point later in your life. I go through my day and random things remind me of books, making me want to read them again. But books that I liked but WON'T reread? That's rare.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and this week's topic is Books I Loved but Will Never Re-Read. Now, I know it says WILL never but who knows? One day I might actually brave up to rereading them? I don't see it happening though.

Let’s Talk About Love || so ADORABLE

Firstly, how beautiful is that cover?! I just love it.

I'll be honest, it's been a while since I read the book so I might not remember everything to write a proper review. *shrug*

This is the first book I've which has an asexual main character. I know what asexual means but I learnt so much more through this book...

The Loneliest Girl in the Universe || honestly BLEW me away

I'll admit, it's been quite a while since I read this book and I don't remember the minute details. But I really wanted to write a review for it because it deserves every good review it can get. This book is really underrated?? I haven't heard nearly as much talk about it as it deserves!

March Wrap-Up // too many books + While You Were Sleeping obsession

At this point I'm not even surprised at how much time has passed with me doing nothing. March was pretty busy for me. It's April today and I still feel like it's March. I hardly found time to blog as I spent time reading and bingeing shows. I usually have my blog posts written in advance but I'm writing this post right before posting so you can see how out of planning I am...
