This book came to my attention sometime last month when people where sharing books by Black authors a lot in order to elevate them, and I am so glad!
Hey everyone! It felt like I posted reading updates just two days back but it's been a whole week. Where is the time going? Also, I have the same attitude when it comes to reading nowadays. I barely notice time and just.. don't seem to read books as much? My pace is slowing down because … Continue reading WWW Wednesday // 8th July 2020

I'm not someone who picks up non-fiction often even though I want to. That changed with this book. While this book was on my TBR for a long time, I didn't pick it up until recently when it was highly recommended by multiple people online because of current scenarios. I'll be honest, I only know things about what's happening in US and UK because of what trends and from books.
This book has been recommended a LOT on Twitter and Instagram, especially since it has both a Black and Transgender main character. And we're in Pride month, so that's an extra incentive to read it right now!
This book is hyped. A ton of romance lovers as well as other readers praised this book and hence I had e x p e c t a t i o n s. I've read many romance books by this point and was interested to know why this book that sounded okay is considered to be so great.
Happy Pride month y'all!! It's fitting that this is my first review of the month. This book came to my attention purely through Twitter. I saw the word henna, then I noticed the entire cover, and it was in my TBR. The reason I picked it up so quickly was because it was the May new release pick for the South Asian Reading Challenge.
The first time I ever heard of/saw this book was when I was going through book lists for a 2020 Popsugar Reading Challenge prompt. The prompt was to read a book set in a country starting with "C" and this book fit because it's set in China during some parts. It was only after I read the book that I found it being mentioned everywhere. It is quite popular! Unknowingly, I had read a book which is revered as a classic.
This book was #1 in my Goodreads TBR which means I added it back in 2013. I was actually in 9th grade then so I was very close to the target audience. I'm so sad that it took me this long to actually read this book. If I had read it back then, I would have loved it so much more.
I've looked forward to this book ever since I heard about it. The Poet X was SO GOOD and cemented the author as one of the really good ones for me. And I expected quite a bit from it because it has gotten a lot of praise among my reader friends.
Verity showed up in my radar when I was looking for books to read for the 2020 Popsugar Reading Challenge prompt "book with an upside down image in the cover". Verity was listed in the book recommendations list for this prompt and I decided to try it.
This book has always been in my mind as a "future maybe read". It wasn't on my TBR explicitly until my book club gifted me this book for my birthday last year. Coincidentally, my book club also picked this book as our Book of the Month for April. Hence all of us who haven't read it yet got to read it together. This motivated me to finally read Circe.
This book has been on my TBR since it released. I used to read Abbie's blog very often and I was very excited to read this book since she kept posting and talking about it. Back then she just had a blog and not a YouTube channel.
This book has been on my TBR for a LONG time. I've seen it around in reviews and social media for a long time, but I somehow just didn't want to pick it up?? No clue why. But that's how my mood works.
This book boasts that the author is "India's "highest selling female author" and that hooked me in. That tagline was the reason for my purchase, and I really hoped that it would be good.
