Today I am presenting mini-reviews of some children books. I love reading middle-grade and children books from time to time and last month, I read these and enjoyed a lot. Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls is a book which needs to be read by not only all the young girls but also by adult women. And not only by girls, it is equally important for the boys to understand how many amazing women exist in this world. These stories of 100 unique women are an inspiration for everyone.
Can you believe this year is about to end in just one month? ONLY ONE MONTH OF 2018 IS LEFT! Seriously though, it feels like 2018 started just yesterday and I am yet to do so many things that I planned for this year in the first place. Anyhow, this month was overall good for me in terms of both personal and blogging life. Nothing much happened but overall it was a smooth month. Now that I am trying to remember what happened this month, my mind is blank 😀 Does this happen to you too?
Hello friends and welcome to another edition of Top Ten Tuesday. These days I am not doing TTT regularly but I am okay with doing only the prompts which actually interest me 🙂 Today’s topic is one such interesting topic – Platonic relationships in books. Well, a platonic relationship is the one which is non-romantic and hence can include best friends, siblings, families etc. For today’s prompt, I thought to pick up wonderful families that I came across in books. Sometimes those families feel like our own and some make us feel that we art part of those families. Sometimes they appear to be better than ours 😛 But I have to agree it was hard to create this list. There are so few families in books that can actually be considered good or happy. Most of the YA books portray problematic families and 70% of my reading list is YA. Yet, I have tried to create this list and let me know about the other families which are good 🙂
Perumal Murugan is an author that I wanted to read since ages and I am glad that this year I finally read his books starting with One Part Woman which I loved. I finished his recent book Poonachi just yesterday and once again it blew my mind. But this review is about One Part Woman so I’ll talk about that 🙂 If you don’t know about Perumal Murugan, then I would like to tell you that he is a well known Indian author who writes in Tamil language and is quite popular. I would totally recommend to check him 🙂
Over the past few days, many of my friends have asked a similar question on Bokstagram – “Do you like reading long books? Which is your favourite?”. And to each of these questions, my answer was simple – “I am afraid of long books”. And this made me realise that I have hardly ever read a book which is more than 550 pages. I think the longest book I have read is Children of Blood and Bone which is about 530 pages. I am not even considering the books in which the font-size is too small though they could have easily been a 450+ pages book. Looking at you, Wonder Woman: Warbringer.
The Poet X is a book which remains with you for a long time after you finish reading it. I never re-read books but after reading this one, I was sure I would like to re-read it soon someday. This book is written in verse so it makes it a quick read. But this book is really powerful. This story is about Xiomara who is trapped in a household where she can’t do things as per her wish. Her mother is over-strict and is extremely religious and forces Xiomara to attend the confirmation classes. She was not allowed to have a boyfriend and was even not allowed to express herself. She loved writing poetry but kept it hidden from her mother because she wasn’t allowed to even do that. But when she comes across a slam poetry club, her life changes.
Hello everyone. I am back with another post in #Blogging101 series and I am continuing the topic of blog graphics. Last month, I told you why blog graphics are important. In this post, I am discussing some of the must-have blog graphics which are important for your blog’s branding. As I told in my last post, graphics are an important part of your blog. They not only help you to increase your reach but also help you to make a unique identity for your blog. In order to make a visual branding for yourself, you must have some basic graphics in place on your blog. Everyone can have a different need as per their blog format, but generally, I think, there are five graphics that you must include on your blog: Blog header, blog logo, favicon, blog post signature and a blog post title template.
The Kiss Quotient is a book which I absolutely loved and yet I have delayed its review for too long 😀 This is an adult contemporary romance, a genre that I read after a long time and this book reminded me why I love this genre. This book turned out to be a totally unexpected read and an absolute delight. It made me happy and I was laughing but at the same time, it made me cry too.
Happy Tuesday guys! It’s been a long time since I did a TTT topic. I really missed doing these posts and this week’s topic was something easy for me to formulate so I decided to join today. As I already mentioned many times, I started reading very late. And all those years when I was not reading, I missed so many important and interesting reads. Obviously, my TBR is too large to handle because of this and today’s topic is too broad for me. I can continuously write for days about my TBR 😀 So if I’ll start writing each individual backlist book I’ll never be able to finish. So instead, I have decided to talk about backlist series that I am yet to read.
Before starting this review, I would like to say that the synopsis of the book doesn’t give any indication about the trigger warnings and if you are the one being triggered easily, then keep these trigger warnings in mind before reading this book. The Girl in the Broken Mirror is a powerful book written in a simple way that would leave an impact on you. It reminded me of Speak to some extent. But unlike Speak, which was focused mainly on the rape and its aftereffect on the victim, this book covered many other topics like family, relationships, cultural differences and most importantly, surviving.
