It's the end of May, y'all!
Time is flying by, especially now that I'm kind of used to staying at home and am adjusted to this routine. It's been almost three months of staying at home.
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.
It's been a slow week of reading.
Remember how I was reading 3-4 books a week for the last couple months? Well, it slowed down a little this week. Instead, the number went to another section.
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.
I haven't done a Top Ten Tuesday post in a long time but today's prompt is one that I'm excited about. I need this chance to talk about books that I abandoned and all my opinions on them.
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.
I have had a GOOD reading week y'all, and I can't wait to talk about it. It's a good thing y'all get my opinions through these posts because I can not review all the books I read in detail. I read more than I can review haha.
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.
Lockdown reading is in full swing! Finding time to read has been quite a chore since this year began which led me to actually decreasing my reading goal for the year. But since social distancing and lockdown* began, I've have more time to read. And of course I wasn't going to waste it. *click the… Continue reading WWW Wednesday // 15th April 2020
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.
Love Lettering had been on my TBR for a short time before I picked it up. It sounded interesting simply because the female lead's profession is lettering. The premise sounded exciting too.
I pitched it as a suggestion for my book club's March book of the month, and others were in too. So we all read it together last month.
This book has been on my radar since it released, and I was gifted a paperback copy of it from my secret Santa last year. I was super excited to finally read it because it's been widely praised.
