Stacking the Shelves #20 | A big one because I went to a sale!

Stacking the Shelves

Happy Saturday guys!! Okay, yeah it is again a BIG haul because there was #BooksByWeightSale and I wasn’t able to resist myself. I was doing pretty good this year till now, in terms of purchasing new books, but I guess I have totaled the number. Also, I never stopped requesting on NetGalley. Sorry, there are so many good looking books and I can’t stop myself from hitting that “Request” button!

Staying Legal Part 1 | Creating Your Blog’s Privacy Policy – Why, What and How?

Welcome to the next post in Blogging101 series. Today we are going to talk about how to stay legal with your blog. There are mainly two pages which you need in order to make your blog somewhat legal – Privacy Policy page and Disclaimers Page. Well, technically you can combine both of these things into a single page. In this post, we will talk about creating a Privacy Policy page for your blog (and next time we will talk about Disclaimers one).

Fifteen #Diverse YA Contemporary books Written by Diverse Female Authors on my Spring TBR


Happy Tuesday guys! Today’s topic for Top Ten Tuesday is Top Ten Books On My Spring 2018 TBR. There are literally hundreds of books that I want to add to my TBR. But basically, I suck at TBRs and almost never read the ones which I decided to read in the first place πŸ˜€ But, this doesn’t mean that I can’t create a one, right? πŸ˜› So this time again, instead of simply presenting the topic as it is, I am twisting it a little bit. My topic for today is not ten but Fifteen #Diverse YA Contemporary Books Written by #Diverse Female Authors on My Spring TBR.

Bullet Point Review | Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman

Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman

Guys, this book was incredible and I wasn’t really expecting it to be so good. It was brutal but honest. I seriously have so many feelings about this book that, maybe, this review doesn’t justify it. You know, sometimes you come across such books where you feel so happy that you read it and become sad thinking about the actual story. This is what exactly happened to me for this book. This story is about Kiko, who is half Asian (a Japanese-American). She is trying to find her place in life while dealing with the stress of her family and her narcissistic mother, who is always surrounded by her own thoughts and always considered Kiko as inferior. She deals with her childhood trauma and social anxiety while in search of her real motive and the aim to get admission in an art school.

eARC Review | To Kill A Kingdom by Alexandra Christo | Just amazing!!

To Kill A Kingdom by Alexandra Christo

Guys! This book was so amazing I can’t even! It was brilliant. I haven’t read many fantasy books (in fact I haven’t read many books, lol) but this was like straight from a movie. If you have watched and loved Pirates of Carribean, then it’s for sure that you would love this book. It has Pirates, sirens, mermaids, mermen, kings & queens, kingdoms. What else do you need for a perfect story? πŸ˜€

Editions Club #1 | Penguin By Hand

Penguin By Hand

Hello and welcome to my new bookish meme, finally, for which I was planning for months. This is particularly for people like me who are often influenced by beautiful covers and not only that, they dream to have a library having all sort of beautiful book editions. Yes, this meme is all about different book editions that I and you might want to collect someday! So what can you expect from this meme? Each month, on a particular Thursday (yeah I was supposed to post this yesterday, but well!), I will pick up a specific book edition series and will try to provide you some basic details of that specific series and obviously will include all the books present in that series. However, many publishers keep adding new books in famous editions series so I would try my best to update my previous post as this meme progresses.

Ten Books With Strong Social Messages That Impacted Me


Happy Tuesday guys! Today’s topic for Top Ten Tuesday is top ten books that surprised you, in either a good or a bad way. You know how I am being a rebel these past TTT posts? πŸ˜€ So yet again I am giving a little twist to today’s topic and instead I am talking about ten books with strong social messages that impacted me in one way or another. Books are not there only for our enjoyment. In spite of enjoyment, they also contain so many beautiful things to learn. I like the books of the second kind more which speaks about any particular issue and make me think about it. Here is my list of ten such books that I read in quite recently (last year and this year) and impacted me in some way.

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli | Super adorable with rich Oreo-ness!!!!

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

Guys, THIS BOOK WAS SUPER-DUPER ADORABLE and if you haven’t read it yet, I don’t know why you are waiting? Even I don’t know why I was waiting till date? No idea!! Okay, you must be thinking what is Oreo-ness in the title? Well, it’s a word that I derived just now for all the Oreos love that this book offers. If you love Oreos, you have to read it! I don’t think there is much that I can say that has not been said already a million times about this super-freaking-adorable book. But yet, without delaying further, I would simply like to give you 10 reasons to read it!

Stacking the Shelves #19

Stacking the Shelves

Happy Saturday guys!! It’s time again to show you the newly added books to my TBR. This time actually, I am little sad as February was not good for me in terms of reading and yet I am collecting all these books. I don’t know when that day will come when I will finally catch with all my pending ARCs and review copies πŸ˜› Yet, I can’t stop myself from requesting the new books, but I have managed to restrict myself from buying more books so I guess that’s actually good, yeah? πŸ˜€
