I am here with a tag post, after like eons! I used to do a LOT of tags initially, but I realized that they made me feel too overwhelmed and I didn’t really have fun writing those. Don’t get me wrong – I love it when you guys tag me! I really do. It just gets too hard to keep up and I feel bad about not being able to do all of them and then I fell so bad that I decided not to do any of them at all lol.😂 Gosh..I am so weird *nervous laughs* Now, that I am actually typing it, I realize how lame I sound. XD Anyways, I just had to do this one because (1) it has been created by a good friend of mine – Panna aka, iamswiftwalker @Just Dreamland (guys she writes amazing poems and she has even started writing short stories!🌈 Do check her out) and (2) I really obssess over zodiac signs…so yeah.😁

“Throne of Glass” is one of my all-time favourite book series. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about these books, the characters, the world, the feels….the anything literally. I read this series when I was going through a very rough time and this helped me go through it. It has a very special place in my heart. Have you read this?

“The Ember Quartet” – Gosh! There are not many words to describe this series except: WoW. I guess this is what is known as a “forbidden love”. I am not gonna mention the love interests, because I don’t want to spoil anyone. I am having serious closure problems with this series. 😫It’s been three months and I just can’t bring myself to read the last book.

Aha! The world of Rick Riordin, which I believe is also called Rick-Verse? I am not sure….but this world was my entire “early teenage life”. The sarcasm, the wit, the banters…in the “Percy Jackson” – I LOVE IT! I have read and re-read these books soo many times, that my copies are all battered now. And trust me when I say😇 – I am not gonna stop reading them anytime soon.

“The Chaos of Standing Still” – literally, really, truly, honestly spoke to me. It was like as if the author personally knew me, and had written this story for me. Never has a book made me feel so belonged…so “less lonely”. I could relate to this book a bit too much…so much so that it scared me, broke my heart and made me want to really go and hug the writer. 🥺

“The Great Gatsby”, as people like to say, is the first one with a “simp”. It was a delight to read this book. It was like reading a high-school romance, except in another era – with parties and lights and billionaires and unfinished love and affairs and corruption. It took me a shamefully long amount of time to read it…becuase well ‘classic’ duh.😅 But it was great nonetheless.

Uh…I am not sure if this is what you would refer ‘A Court of Silver Flames’ as “a tender story”, because this book was anything but ‘tender’. It was like a frickin’ explosion! Since, this book was released recently, I am not gonna get into details – because I don’t want you to get spoiled. So, go read it! because this book deserves to be read.

The wound is still raw guys. It’s been a few months now, since I read “The Kite Runner”. This book was a bloody whirlwind. I cannot get over it. There really isn’t a lot to say about this book – if you know, you know. You can check my spoiler free review here though – Book Review: The Kite Runner.

“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”, does not have a good plot twist; it has a bomb-blast sized plot twist. I feel like this book is soo under-rated! This deserves soo much more. It’s a masterpiece honestly. A crazy girl who is probably the most dangerous hacker ever and a smart driven journalist – tell me that doesn’t make the best team, when you want to uncover the truth!?

I am pretty sure that majority people won’t find “Bookish and the Beast”, to be adventurous, but it is definitely a great summer read. This is a “Beauty and the Beast” re-telling which is pretty obvious. Actually, I think the title speaks for itself: A booklover and a bad-boy fall for each other. If you are a booklover, and you don’t want to read it – I don’t believe you.

I think “Harry Potter” is one of the best books that portray the power of friendships! There were soo many great friend circles in this one! And do I really need to elaborate on this series – becuase literally everyone and their mother knows about this! lol

Saying that this book is quirky is probably stretching it too far, but to be fair – “His Dark Materials”, is one of the most unique stories that I have ever read! I think that this series is one of those, which can be literally read by any age group and it will still make sense. I am yet to finish this series…but then I don’t want to because..that would be the end. Ugh.

The cover! The cover itslef would have made me read it, even if the book was trash. lol. But the thing is – “The Girl who Drank the Moon”, is anything but ‘trash’. It’s just as gorgeous as it looks and then some! This is one of the best middle grade books I have ever read. Scratch that. This is one of the best books that I have read, period. With lots of hope, love, a baby dragon, a splash of magical realism and a dash of whimsy – this book is a wonder.
*the images of the books do not belong to me. I got them from google, so I couldn’t credit*
I have no clue whom to tag, because I am pretty sure that half of you have already been tagged.
So, if your name has the letters: 𝒜, 𝐸, 𝐼, 𝒪, 𝒰 – you have been tagged by me!
And if you are a SCORPIO, then you must do it! You are most definitely tagged, because we are one team!😜 If any of you don’t read books, or are not interested in the book, there is a music version🎵 of the same: check here.
