City of Bones by Cassandra Clare: Review + Discussion | Shadowhunter Chronicles #1

Heyo! Guess who’s re-reading the same books instead of picking up new ones that are staring at her from her TBR pile? Uhhhhh. Don’t look at me. Okay, fine. Guilty as charged. Honestly, 2018 has been the year of re-reading some favourites and it has been blissful. I’m getting a whole new perspective on these stories, so many things I’d missed out, so many things I’d forgotten.

Early this year, I’d made a decision to re-read the entire Shadowhunter Chronicles by Cassandra Clare in wait for Queen of Air and Darkness which is one of my most anticipated books of this year! When I read it for the first time, I was only in the sixth grade and I’d started from the Infernal Devices; reading is in chronological order rather than the order it was published it. I read the events in the way they happened, not in the way they were meant to be read. So, this time I decided to read them in the order that they were published, starting with City of Bones from The Mortal Instruments. And while I was at it, I thought I would record my journey and thoughts on here. Not that anyone cares.

never letting go of ‘do what you gotta do’

Heyo! Today, I’m going to be reviewing, or rather just discussing, my thoughts and emotions on The_Blonde‘s series ‘do what you gotta do‘ (or more commonly known as the art thief fic), which is available to read on ao3, and is essentially a two-part fanfiction not named after Kanye’s infamous ‘famous’ but rather on the original- Nina Simone’s ‘Do What You Gotta Do’. The name of the two stories are “i can’t blame you much (for wanting to be free)” and “the part of you they’ll never see (is the part you’ve shown to me)“, which are controversially longer than usual book titles; however, these were also the reason I first fell in love with the story.

The SIMS Book Tag!

Hey guys! So, I saw this tag on JesseTheReader’s channel and I was completely sold. (By the way, if you are not subscribed to Jesse already, GO SUBSCRIBE HE IS AWESOME!) I did not know the SIMS existed until some time ago when I started watching Dan and Phil’s SIM series. I still don’t play it but I LOVE WATCHING OTHER PEOPLE PLAY IT! Seriously, I could and have watched those videos all day long…

I am pretty sure I would stop doing any work whatsoever if I actually start playing it myself

A Crazy Kind of Love by Megha Rao: Review

Hello, guys! Today I am going to review my thoughts and feels on a very cute, cliché book called A Crazy Kind of Love by Megha Rao. (Sorry, I don’t know how but this book does not have a GoodReads link currently)

I have been on this Indian author binge lately because I was shamed a lot by my parents for reading more books by Indian authors, what with me being Indian and all. So, I read this book. I won it in a giveaway coincidentally, which was hosted by Penguin India, so I would also like to thank them!Read More »
