I just finished reading this book - 11 December, 2020 at 2.57 am. It's been an hour...almost. And I have finally gathered my thoughts; enough to type this. And I want to say that I literally have nothing to say about this book, that I have no words at all. But that would be a lie. I have so much to talk about. I have so many things that I want to say, but I can't say anything at all. I can't form a single thought. I don't think I can review this book. I couldn't find a single folly, a single flaw. I think I loved it a bit too much. I read this book in a day. "I loved it from here to there." Wonderfully crafted, beautifully written.
I have been tagged by Nehal @ Books and Words, to do the hilarious tag, where I must share my own hilariocity and hopefully make you laugh because it's so hilarious and do please check Nehal's blog because she is hilarious and I hope you find this hilarious because I am trying to be hilarious… Continue reading 5 Hilarious Things About Me Tag😵

Writing is often romanticized—with images of writers tucked close to a writing desk scribbling on notebooks for hours on end, or sitting by a fire with a glass of wine in hand penning poetry for ages, or hunkered down in a coffee shop typing madly away on a computer for half a day. But any… Continue reading GUEST POST: Be Selfish|| Author: Kellie Doherty📚
It feels like yesterday that I wrote the "October Wrap -Up" post! Gosh! That was real quick! November has been a very interesting month. I read quite a few books, but I read most of them for the sake of reading it (so I get the reference when people talk about it), then I discovered… Continue reading NOVEMBER WRAP-UP
It is a story that reminds you of the power of women's love.This book was an easy read - you can read it in one -sitting. It's not exactly a gripping read, but you can easily fly through it........ I am not gonna lie.....really sweet moments...they make me cringe. And I cringed at least twice in every chapter! So, tread carefully...don't venture into this story if you don't have a sweet tooth!
HelloOOooO!! So, today I have a really special announcement. I am kinda nervous but I am soo excited to share with you.

I am not gonna lie guys....but this is one of the best books that I have read in a while. This definitely goes down in my list of "All Time Favourite Books". I don't know if it was because I was reading it at 4.00 A.M. or if it was because I was particularly feeling emotional at that time...but this book made me cry....very hard.

Happy Birthday to myself! and to you too..if your birthday is on the14th of November. ....So...um...now that I am seventeen, you will be pleased or maybe not pleased to know that I have lived seventeen years of my life..without doing anything special or extraordinary at all. ....I want to study English Lit though.🤓
Yeah! Yeah! I know I am? was? ...in a reading slump........Okay, lame jokes and "overreactions" aside, books I read this month are:-
There's are not many things that I can do in my free time - like saving the world and training to be an assassin........My bookshelf often looks like Olivander's wand shop in Diagon Alley............Hopefully, become an editor for a badass writer. That would be a dream come true.
I am in a slump..or rather am going to be in a slump!! Tragedy! Disaster! The world is going to end! NOOOOO!!! Recommend a few books to me please!!
This is one of those books that I would recommend to every stranger that I meet just so, more can admire the sheer beauty of this story.
This book has underground tunnels, mist -shrouded castle, sinister characters, great friendships and a mystery bigger than what you can imagine. I loved the entire series, but this book, particularly has stayed with me. I have loved it. My love for mysteries and thriller books was born from this book...this series.
The Night has a unique type of darkness, the kind that holds the stars and help them shine bright. The darkness hugs you, like a warm cloak and within it's safe embrace, you can feel your own soul ...deep down.
Hi! I am so excited and nervous - all at the same time. Never in my wildest dreams had I imagined that this would happen one day. I got nominated for The Sunshine Blogger Award by Ali over at - "In the Lost and Found".
Inspired by Sherlock Holmes, this book is a really quick read and will only take you an hour or so. The story follows quite a few flawed characters, which are well developed and have a back story with distinct personalities. One thing I like about it is, the author provides you with a vivid description of each and every character.
