Is Non-Fiction The “Superior” Genre? || Discussion

is non-fiction the superior genre

More often than not, readers I meet in person look down on my reading choices. I started reading books when I was in 6th grade and still did not have friends to hang out with. My darling mum was a reader when she was young and knew what solace books have to offer. Hence, when… Continue reading Is Non-Fiction The “Superior” Genre? || Discussion

Why I Don’t Like Comment Back Culture Anymore // discussion

why i don't like comment back culture header image

This topic has been on my mind for at least two months now. I wasn't sure if I should talk about it in a blog post or simply rant about it to a friend. But also, no one whom I text that much has a blog or bookstagram account which means they won't relate to… Continue reading Why I Don’t Like Comment Back Culture Anymore // discussion

How to Judge a Book by its Cover // Analyzing Cover Trends in Different Genres

“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 tea time! I was confused on what to post today since I had multiple ideas. As I couldn't make a decision, I put up polls on Twitter and Instagram. In both places, this post got the most votes so here we are. I got myself a hot cup of tea as well to set… Continue reading if we were having tea… // 17th May 2020

My Top Ten BTS Songs

I've been an ARMY since Epiphany released and I haven't looked back since. It's been a year and a half, and while I don't keep up with everything BTS*, I manage to know the highlights. It's the only band that I've consistently been following. Usually, I move on to others pretty quickly. So yes, BTS… Continue reading My Top Ten BTS Songs

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.

10 reasons why remembering books is crucial for us book lovers

I don't know about you but I have a hard time remembering books. Names, authors, characters, covers and the whole plot. Give me two months and my current read will be reduced to three lines in my brain's storage space.* And I hate this.

There are so many situations in which I'm left mumbling because I DON'T REMEMBER. And I'll be honest, it's a little embarrassing. There's ONE thing I love to do—reading. I have read quite a number of books as well. And I'm not amused when it all becomes mush in my brain[...]

Gathering Blue || I did not expect this and I don’t like it

'll be honest: I was procrastinating writing this review.

I was BLOWN AWAY with The Giver (book 1) and I couldn't wait to dive into this book. I had no idea what this book had in it, but it had to be good.

The Plot

We follow teenager Kira, having only two syllables in her name, as she tries to survive after her mother dies. Her mother, who was the only reason she was allowed to live because she was a cripple{...}

The Giver || the most discussion-worthy book I’ve ever read

My best friend gave me this book and said READ IT and I wasn't very inclined to. The synopsis behind was vague, I had only heard of it a couple times and I wasn't in the mood for books not Fantasy. But if my best friend loved it, it has to be really good so I kept it and read when I finally got the mood.

AND I WAS BLOWN AWAY. THE END.

Honestly, though. What a book.

We follow the story of 12 year old Jonas who lives in a "perfect society"[...]

A tour of my phone

Phones reveal a lot about a person. The wallpaper, font, icons, apps, everything tells something about the owner. I love looking at others' phones (and especially diving into my friends' galleries). So I thought, why not I give a small tour of my phone. What this tour will include Screenshots of how my phone looks i.e.… Continue reading A tour of my phone
