Book tags are fun and light and I could use some of that right now. As someone from India, I can't really say anything of substance about what is happening in the US right now. All I can do is support and raise voices of those who need to be heard online, which is what… Continue reading The Stay at Home Book Tag
“Don’t judge a book by its cover.” It’s advice everyone’s heard at some point. Covers, people seem to think, represent only the surface level appearance of a book, which is why it’s bad to judge books for their appearance instead of their substance. And while it’s true that the content of a book is the… Continue reading How to Judge a Book by its Cover // Analyzing Cover Trends in Different Genres
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.
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.
Okay so I wasn't actually going to update my reading this week. Mostly because I posted just yesterday and also my eyes are STRAINED this week. Like, my eyes are kinda red as I type this right now.
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.
My initial plan was to update y'all on my progress with the reading challenges every month. And I kept it up for two months before forgetting about 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.
I have to say, these WWW Wednesday posts are really nice to write. They allow me to write small reviews for every book that I read (even ones that I don't write full reviews for).
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.
Lockdown is definitely helping me read more. Although I'm not reading every day, I now have time to finish books in one sitting. And it shows in my reading updates.
