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.
Happy Saturday guys!! So the first Saturday of 2018. How are you guys feeling? How were these few days of 2018 been so far? Mine is quite similar to the days of 2017 😛 Just office work and all. One of my goal of 2018 is to purchase fewer books and I guess this week successfully passed 😛 (Let’s see for how many weeks I can continue this!) But yes, I did get some review copies and a few of my NetGalley requests got accepted. So I guess my TBR is still going to increase anyway 😀 So let’s see what I gathered in the first week of 2018.
Welcome to my second installment of State of the ARC meme. I skipped the last month’s edition (Evelina, don’t look at me * hiding *) because of the obvious reasons, but this month I am back 😀 Also, I want to make this clear to my readers here – Evelina posts her State of the ARC at the end of each month, while I try to post it next month. So literally it means for me “the status of my ARC pile in the current month”. Essentially both our posts contain the same thing (the ARC wrap-up in last month), but the posting time is different.
Happy Tuesday guys! So first Tuesday of the year? How does it feel? Certainly felt like a fresh start for me 😀 2017 was a great year for me in terms of reading. I never read so many books in a single year before. It certainly made me confident. Apart from the great books, there were some great authors that I discovered and would certainly like to read more from them.
First of all, Happy New Year to all you beautiful people out in the world who are reading this right now or otherwise. I hope that this year brings you lots of joy and happiness and you may achieve your goals that you have set for 2018! 🙂
Happy Saturday guys!! So the year is finally going to end this is the last Saturday! Can you believe it? Where did the year go? Certainly reading made the year fly faster than ever 😀 Don’t you think so? I moved to Bengaluru in December and last weekend I visited a famous bookstore here and I was amazed to see the collection there. I don’t prefer to buy old books but there, seeing the price and the collection I was amazed. Though I decided that I won’t buy any new book before the new year, I ended up buying two books (not my fault okay?) 😀 So let’ see what books I managed to get by the year end.
What comes to your mind when you first read the name “Jane Austen”? Probably Pride & Prejudice? or any other novel written by her? Jane Austen doesn’t need any introduction (at least to the bookworms I guess?). Austenistan is an anthology containing 7 different stories inspired by Jane Austen’s work and are set in modern Pakistan. Sounds fun, eh?
Happy Tuesday guys! How was your Christmas (if you celebrate)? Last week I posted books that I would love to get from Santa, but unfortunately, I didn’t get any 🙁 We don’t celebrate Christmas here so it is kind of understood and I don’t have bookish friends either 😛 So let’s go through today’s topic of TTT: Top ten books I’m looking forward to in 2018! Though I am quite active on Instagram still I miss new releases 😛 So this topic was quite difficult for me to compose. But here I am, putting together this list from my recent hopping!
There are two kinds of interesting books. One that you totally enjoy based on the plot and characters. The other is one that you don’t only enjoy but also consider as your true self and it convinces you that it is your story. This book falls into the latter category.
Happy Saturday guys!! Can you believe that it’s been more than a month since I did my last Stacking the Shelves post? You may ask why but probably you know the reason (if you follow my blog continuously). If not then, well, I was in the middle of packing and moving to a new city and new job. probably let’s save that talk for my monthly wrap-up post 😀
