Stacking the Shelves #7 | Bookstagram effect

Stacking the Shelves

So another Saturday, another Stacking the Shelves post 😀 I sometimes think, can I actually, ever, stop buying the books? And my brain answers this: Are you Kidding?But the truth is I am not even guilty 😀 Is this make me bad? I guess not! So this week, I finally got some of the books that #bookstagram community was constantly raving about this whole year. Actually, this is the festive season in India (Diwali is around the corner, YaY!), so the prices were actually down or say there were huge discounts. And what is even the benefit of discounts if we didn’t buy books? Right? “D

Book Review | Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows by Balli Kaur Jaswal | Funny, dark and authentic

Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows : Book review

Before reading any further, just keep one thing in mind: This book is NOT just what the title says! I know, whenever anyone sees this title, the first thing that comes to mind is that it contains just the erotic stories. So if anyone doesn’t read Erotica, (s)he will certainly not pick this. Even, I thought so in the place but since I like reading Erotica, I didn’t mind. But today, when I am writing this review, I am really happy that I read this book. It has some erotic stories but yet it is a tale of self-being and expressing your desires openly. This book has so much going on beyond the steamy title.

Ten book covers that I fall in love at first sight


Happy Tuesday guys! This time, I am doing a little twist to Top Ten Tuesday’s topic. Today’s topic is: Ten Books With Fall/Autumn Covers/Themes (If the cover screams fall to you, or the books give off a feeling of being Fallish). Basically I can’t think of 10 such books so instead, I have twisted the topic to this: 10 book covers that I fall in love at first sight. It is meant to be about book covers anyway, so I think it perfectly fits. Isn’t it? 😀

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.

Monthly Wrap-up | September 2017

Monthly wrap-up September 2017

I know its already been 4 days since September finished and I am little late for my wrap-up post. But life is kinda playing- I was travelling last week so all my schedule just got jumbled up 😀 I was not able to read more, my husband got sick in the middle of the month, then we had our trip planned for the last weekend, most of my time was focused on creating good graphics for my blog? So overall, the reading time just got cut and I just read 4 books 🙁 September was a tricky month for me. Let’s go further into the details.

Top Ten Book Boyfriends


Today’s topic for Top Ten Tuesday is: Top ten books boyfriends/girlfriends. I have decided to go with: Top ten boyfriends, because I am a girl and totally swoon over the fictional crushes? Isn’t this topic interesting? Though I had hard time managing to find 10 such boyfriends, I finally did it. I haven’t even read many books in the series, but obviously I have watched their TV adaptations and I was not willing to leave the out of the list. So let’s start with today’s list.

Ten books with bookish characters a.k.a bookworms


Today’s topic for Top Ten Tuesday is kind of freebie: Top ten books with __________ characters. So I have decided to go with: Top ten bookish characters i.e. characters who love reading. Well, isn’t it make you happy whenever a character appears in a book who love reading as much as you do? And why not, #bookish people are an awesome breed 😀 Instead of favourites, I have just added the characters, from my recent reads, who love reading, because how can I even pick a favourite among readers? So let’s get started!

#TheReadingQuest | Wrap Up and Final Score Board

#TheReadingQuest : FInal scoreboard

Welcome to my wrap-up of #TheReadingQuest readathon. The Reading Quest was hosted by Aentee @ Read At Midnight and ran from August 13th to September 10th. All the character and graphics have been created by CW of Read, Think, Ponder. I know, I am too late for this wrap-up, but yet, here I am 😀 This quest was really fun to do, though I read totally different books that I actually intended to read at the start of the quest 😛 I am glad that nevertheless, I was able to complete my character class “Mage” at least. So, let’s see what I achieved during this challenge. For my original signup post, click here.
