[General lit] Vicious..ly Odd, But Really Good? + Added Reality For Kicks Vicious by V.E. Schwab + Real Life Super Heroes by Nadia Fezzani

Trying my first V.E. Schwab book, I wasn’t sure what to expect – her books seem to be really big in the community, and yet I didn’t even know which kind of books they were. Would it be funny, sad, jokey or filled with adventure? I should have known better. I mean, I know the book world now mostly goes…

[Myths] Mesoamerican Mythology Is Mighty Cool!! + 3 Reasons To Read It Feathered Serpent, Dark Heart of Sky: Myths of Mexico by David Bowles

I’ve always been incredibly interested in the rarer myths – so you’re probably not surprised that I’m reviewing the lost myths of South America here. The truth is, because of historical bias, the media and many more factors (and the simple fact that not much actually remains of these cultures), we imagine them to have been ruthless, mysterious… unknowable. When…

[Nonfiction] 3 Things You Might Not Know About Marilyn Monroe The Girl: Marilyn Monroe, The Seven Year Itch, and the Birth of an Unlikely Feminist by Michelle Morgan

Yet another biography of Marilyn, you say? There are so many already, right? Well, what if I told you that you need a lot of books to cover the life of a multi-faceted personality? Marilyn was one of a kind, and The Girl covers a part of her life few seem to have spoken about in detail – the feminist…

[Scifi] Episode 2: Murderbot Is Free, But Not Free From Caring Artificial Condition by Martha Wells

Murderbot finally returns in Artificial Condition, and I’ve been impatiently waiting for it ever since I read the first installment. It’s by far the most exciting novella series I am following right now. I did not expect this direction! And I definitely approve. It was slow going at first and I wasn’t sure what was happening, took a little while to…

So actually, I am on vacation right now! So not much blog stuff has been happening, and I am also probably horrifyingly behind on comment replies and blog hopping. Sorry guys! So this post will be short. Except for this one thing that I wanted to share – last week a lot of you asked me about this TBR list…

[Literary] Great Social Commentary, But Poor Reading Experience The Little Friend by Donna Tartt - Buddy Read with JJ @ This Dark Material!

Tartt is actually one of my favorite authors, although previously I had just read one book by her – The Goldfinch, which is one of my…

[Urban Fantasy] It Was Epic And This Review Has Too Many GIFs The Long Way Down by Craig Schaefer

The Long Way Down was recommended time and again by my Goodreads friends, but I was like… No, detectives… Murder… No… But then one of them said the magic words: PC Grant series. And that, my friends, always opens to door. So I took their word on it, and tried my luck with The Long Way Down. No regrets, baby. No regrets. Check…

[Slice of Life] Fall In Love With All The Characters, And They’re Diverse Too The Sunday Lunch Club by Juliet Ashton

I stayed up till 3 on a workday because I couldn’t unglue myself from my Kindle screen. Off this book. Then I proceeded to tell the whole soap-opera like plot of The Sunday Lunch Club to my boyfriend right before breakfast. In a roughly panicked, nearly screamy tone. With loads of hand flapping. Check out on Goodreads Get at Book Depository ★★★★✬…
