my spring look is unbrushed hair, brown corduroy jacket with a wooly lookin collar, sleepy clothes, sneakers, flowers in hair, hot tea in hand, sitting by the sea reading, ready to fight misogynists at all times! I just want to read without stress of life. Sitting somewhere far way from cars. Pure solitude.
BOOK/GRAPHIC NOVEL REVIEW
4/5 🌟 for everyone's a aliebn when ur a aliebn too by Jomny Sun
'day 21: when u are woried abot who u are suposed to be, u never get to learn who u are.' I read this book in one sitting. It's fun and sweet, and there are layers to the story so it can be as light-hearted or as intense as you need it to be.
In this book we follow an alien who is sent to Earth to find out all about humans - and ends up learning a whole lot about life and Nothing instead.
I was also tagged by @vampnessa to do the #toptenfavouritebooks tag, which is terrifying and subject to change. But off the top of my head, and in no particular order (and not including entire series): 1. A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas

3. Six of Crows by Leigh Barduo
4. Red Rising or Golden Son or Morning Star by Pierce Brown
5. The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen

7. A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

NEW RELEASE! ANONYMOUS.
“ His name is anonymous and there’s is only one thing he wants... me.”
Happy release day @lpdover !
I got the honor of reading this amazing book as an arc and I’m blown away.
I usually don’t read books like this cuz they freak me out but as usual I loved the cover so I had to try. ⠀⠀
This book is fu of tension and excitement, I was tense through out most parts of the book. Like damn... who is that anonymous person?
I really liked how the author has written this book, it really brings out the detective in you and makes you really intrigued. She describes the characters ok, I personally would want a little more description on the characters but that’s just me being picky. The story line was really good, I could barely put down the book at some points cuz I just had to know more. The book is drama filled and I was tense through most of it lol.
The sad part though was that I from the very beginning had a hint of who I thought it was and it turned out that I was right so that wasn’t all that fun but other than that, I loved it.
Over all I am really glad I took the time to read this book. Good job author!!
Every person has a story to tell. Some may be sweet with a happily ever after, but there are others that end in tragedy. Mine has yet to be finished.
My name is Elizabeth Kingston and this is where my story begins.
I never thought my life could be so perfect. I have an amazing job owning my own bakery, and a wonderful husband who I love and who loves me back. Never once did I have to worry about anything, at least, not until the texts started coming in. They always begin the same way … numbers that spell my nickname when read upside down.
It’s someone from my past, only they won’t to tell me who they are, but that by talking to them, I’ll figure it out. It’s a game I refuse to play. Unfortunately, I’m left with no choice when things begin to take a dangerous turn.
His name is Anonymous and there’s only one thing he wants … ME.

#bawritinglife Day 7: Writer Friends and People You Should Follow
These ladies may not know it but they are the reasons I continue to write. They aren’t necessarily my critique partners or beta readers, but between their YouTube videos, Facebook groups, and IG challenges I’m constantly inspired to write and motivated to achieve my dream of becoming a published author.
This #WorldBookDay I decides to have a readathon. A 64 hours readathon because it's on weekdays. A few people have joined in, and frankly, anyone who wants to can join us anytime between 23rd April to 25th April. The readathon starts at 23rd April midnight (IST i.e. GMT+5:30) and ends on 25th April, 11:59 pm (IST).
The hashtag to be used for this is: #Readathon64 and these are my reads for this. (I know I started The Mirage some time back but I could barely read it due to schedule. Oops!)
Even HarperCollins (@harpercollinsin) has started a sort of a festival, I guess. I have no idea what to call it. But they're calling all the #bibliophiles out there. They're calling all #BookLovers and all the #Bookstagrammers to come and promote their one favorite religion - #Bookism. So if you're a #Bookist then all you need to do is follow these basic steps:
1. Post a picture of your current read. Mine, of course, are these two.
2. Use the hashtags #InBookismIBelieve#WorldBookDay and #[Your Location]. So I'll use #India#Noida.
3. Tag at least 3 of your friends and pass on the word. :)
Honestly, I like the idea. You can see this on their original post, too. Tap on @harpercollinsin.
💬Where do you get book recs from?
I get most of my recommendations from #bookstagram. When it comes to mysteries/thrillers and crime books, my number 1 go-to bookie is Abby of @crimebythebook! For YA reads, I most often check with @jaimearkin since our reading taste is so similar (and she’s a superhero and reads alllllll the books!), and with romance I love hearing from Carol of @adventureandpages & Sam of @everlasting.charm, who are always up to date with all things romance! 💕
Who are some of your favorite book-recommending friends? 🤗
(Thank you to @gallerybooks #partner for this copy!)
From the international bestselling author of Unraveling Oliver, an “unputdownable psychological thriller with an ending that lingers long after turning the final page” (The Irish Times) about a Dublin family whose dark secrets and twisted relationships are suddenly revealed.
My husband did not mean to kill Annie Doyle, but the lying tramp deserved it.
On the surface, Lydia Fitzsimons has the perfect life—wife of a respected, successful judge, mother to a beloved son, mistress of a beautiful house in Dublin. That beautiful house, however, holds a secret. And when Lydia’s son, Laurence, discovers its secret, wheels are set in motion that lead to an increasingly claustrophobic and devastatingly dark climax.
🇬🇧Taking some time of this beautiful sunny Sunday to organise my bookshelf, and I just wanted to show you two of the books I've absolutely enjoyed in the past months. I couldn't decide which one of these two I liked the most! Have you read them? Let me know your favourites down below!😊
🇪🇸Tomándome un ratito de este precioso domingo para organizar mi estantería. Y quería enseñaros dos de los libros que más he disfrutado en estos últimos meses. No podría decidirme por ninguno de los dos! Los habéis leído? Contadme vuestros favoritos en los comentarios!😊 #bookstagram#bookstagrammer#bookcomunity#booksobsessed#eleonorandpark#fangirl#rainbowrowell#bookish#bookslove
14/52 : Pachinko by Min Jin Lee
you might have noticed (or might not have, cause let’s be real) that I haven’t been keeping up with my reading challenge. so, instead of just acting like it didn’t exist or being embarrassed that I can’t keep up with a goal that I set for myself, I’m going to own up to it.
lately, a book a week has been too much for me. no excuses, just life and the things that come with it. so, I’m amending my goals. I don’t want to give up on what I set out to gain from this - getting new perspectives and consciously choosing what I read and who it’s written by.
so, as of now I won’t be reading a book a week by an author of color. BUT, I will be choosing books only by authors of color for the rest of the year. it won’t happen on a weekly basis anymore, but it will happen anytime I pick up a new book.
I’ll still share them here - like Pachinko, which is a sweeping family story that I love so much already and am taking my time to read and savor.
so, happy slower reading!
