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? 😀

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!

Bullet Point Review | The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert

The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert

Okay, so today I am posting the review of a book which is currently in too much hype and was actually one of the most anticipated reads of many, including mine. But I didn’t enjoy it as much as I expected. This is so sad considering the beautiful cover (the alternate edition) and the blurb gave so much hope to me 🙁 In fact, I realize it now, that I went into a reading slump last month because of this book only. It was too dragged. In simple words, this book was not for me.

Bullet Point Review | The Upside of Falling Down by Rebekah Crane

The Upside of Falling Down by Rebekah Crane

Could you imagine your life where you don’t remember anything anymore? Waking up with amnesia with a flood of emotions? Not able to decide what to feel- fear, confusion, panic, frustration? Feeling alone? I certainly can’t imagine myself being in that situation and this was exactly what attracted me towards this book. I knew from the beginning that this I would end up loving this, and I am glad I was not disappointed 🙂

Backlist Review | The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon

The Sun is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon

I am such a sucker for cute romances and this book was no less. You must have heard how this book is all about insta-love and how people usually hate that. I agree. I too hate insta-loves in most of the cases, but this book doesn’t fall into that case, for me. Despite insta-love-y storyline, in the beginning, I loved it because it was more than that. I loved both Daniel and Natasha as the characters and I loved Nicola Yoon’s writing, though it was my first ever read of hers.

DUMPLIN’ by Julie Murphy | Adorkable with a quirky romance!

Book review: Dumplin' by Julie Murphy

Presenting my first ever buddy read with none other than Evelina @ AvalinahsBooks. She has done this kind of review a few times already and you can check them on her blog. This is my first time doing a buddy read and I am so glad that we both enjoyed this book equally. This review will be an interview-style post where each one of us will answer 7 questions that we asked each other after finishing the book.

Turtles All the Way Down by John Green | 10 reasons it demands to be read

Turtles All the Way Down by John Green

So, this is weird. I have never ever written a review immediately after finishing the book. And while I am writing this, it is 1:30 AM here! Can you believe it? This book just made me crazy and I have like multiple thoughts running wild into me, like spirals (yeah I am using the line from this book) and I want to share all those thoughts into this post, right now. Yes, I can’t wait to write it because I don’t want to miss anything that I am feeling right now. And pardon me before you go any further, this is going to be my longest review ever

Book Review | Looking For Alaska by John Green

Looking For Alaska by John Green

John Green was already one of my favourite authors before reading this book. I had read just The Fault in Our Stars by him yet I liked him. His writing is so raw and real. When I finished this book, I was not sure how to write its review. Whether to be happy or to be sad. I was conflicted literally because of the ending? I am not sure if it was meant to end like that or it was on purpose? But yet, I love the overall book. But here, I should definitely mention that I would have enjoyed it way more if I would have read it like 3-4 years back.

Book Review: Wonder by R.J. Palacio | Simple, loving and truly wonderful

Wonder by R.J. Palacio

Before starting this book, I had heard so many great things about it. I never heard anything bad about this, so obviously my expectations were high about this. And yes, it didn’t disappoint me. In fact, it was way too good for my imagination. There are some stories which touch you deeply, and surely it was one of them. This is a story about 11 years old August Pullman who doesn’t have a normal face. He has a rare medical facial deformity, which he refers to as “mandibulofacial dysostosis”, more commonly known as Treacher Collins syndrome and a cleft palate. After his birth, he went through multiple operations on his face to look like what he was now.
