Even if I'm not interested in a plotline, you can bet that I'll still read and like it if it's by Colleen Hoover. This book is based on the struggles of a married couple and their journey through it. Now, I don't usually pick up books which deal with marriage and post-marriage things. I'm still in the YA and NA section. But it's by CoHo so I read it and, no surprise, I loved it.
I have several great songs for y'all this month so get your earphones if you're in public because you've got to listen to these. Welcome to another post where I share my monthly favourite songs which I listened to on repeat for at least a few days each. I think I've got a good mix this time so let's dive in!
Every time I think I can't feel more exhausted than now, life proves me wrong. And I'm pretty sure I have a while to go before I hit my max exhaustion level, so until then, I'm going to complain. Welcome to another Sunday Post where I talk about my past week! This meme was created by Caffeinated Book Reviewer and is the perfect meme for me talk about random things, all in one place.
Happy Friday y'all! It's almost the weekend! Well, technically. But since I have classes on Saturdays as well, my weekend starts tomorrow evening. #sadlife I'm just not in the mood to write up a proper post and plus I don't have the time so I thought I'll do a tag today. I saw this tag over at Diversion3000 and it's been a while since I've done a music tag, so let's go!
Firstly, I love Sophie Kinsella. I've read almost all of her books, probably missing very few only because they weren't there in my library. So when I saw this book in the bookstore, I immediately picked this up. Now, I have some expectations from Kinsella. I expect a humourous book with some romance but also has focus on something else including personal development. And I got it. I wasn't disappointed at all.
This movie is, hands down, one of my favourite movies of the year. To All The Boys I've Loved Before is a book-to-movie adaptation of the book of same name by Jenny Han. I read the book a few years back and really liked it. There were a few minute things that I didn't like but overall it was good. I adored it. So when I heard that it's being made into a movie? I squealed! When I saw the cast, I squealed. When I saw the trailers, I was singing praises and couldn't wait to watch it...
This isn't a regular post. I'm just sharing my favourite poem. So I found this poem on Tumblr back in high school and I fell in love with it. I even by-hearted it. But once college started, I didn't even think about it. Recently I remembered it and I've been trying to remember it but I could only recall bits and pieces. Some words here and there and the vibe I felt.
I read My Lady Jane, book 1, and I absolutely loved it. I added this to my TBR immediately. While I know that expectations set you for disappointment, this one did. I expected a lot of humour, fantasy elements and a story that'll take me for a spin. And I got it. I should also mention: I really disliked Jane Eyre. I heard so much about it but I just found the romance stupid. Which was sad. But this retelling took everything I didn't like and changed it, also subtly mocking some stupid things that I mocked.
I was in the mood to read f/f romance books and I remembered seeing some recs over at wordwoonders and headed there immediately. I picked this book from Fadwa's recs and I absolutely loved it. Click here to see her recommendations post. The Plot It's almost the cliché that we've all read about the popular kid and the nerd, only they're both girls. Stella is the immaculate, beautiful and popular girl who is rude and cold as ice to everyone. Kyle is the nerd who hides behind glasses and fiddles with her hair when nervous.

I had seen praise for this book around for a while. I had it on my TBR but hadn't bought it yet. One day it was free (!!!!) on Amazon Kindle and I grabbed it immediately. I'm really glad because I was in the mood for romance soon after and I picked this up. Content warning: on-page explicit scenes. The Plot Stella Lane is a brilliant econometrician. She's fascinated by math and patterns. Her career life is stellar, but her personal one is not. She has Asperger's and hence doesn't do well in social situations, like dating...
It's time for another Korean drama review! Let's hope I didn't forget everything about this show because I actually watched it months back lol. Thank goodness I had the foresight to make notes so this review might actually have some details. I watched this Kdrama only because of Lee Jong-suk. After watching three shows of his and loving all of them, I decided I'm bingeing the shows in which he's a lead. I tried watching I Can Hear Your Voice because I saw a blog post that said he's amazing in it. I liked him well enough but I HATED the other main character. She was very annoying and Lee Jong-suk's character still pined over her. Yeah, no. So then I decided to try Doctor Stranger and I went in with low expectations because I hadn't heard much praise for this one.
I read Caraval last year and I LOVED it. I even tweeted about it and my tweet was quoted in the UK paperbacks. It was lovely. I really liked the idea of Caraval. The game which is real or not and you're questioning everything while in the race to win the game.
While I liked Legendary, it still felt short of Caraval for me in the ways that I liked Caraval. Legendary had more of a personal plot line with many things weighing in. It did not have the actual Caraval on the forefront.
Note: There are spoilers for Caraval below.
