ARC Review: Under the Whispering Door

Happy Tuesday, everyone! I’m back with a review of one of my most anticipated reads of the year. I *squealed* when I was approved for this ARC and it’s safe to say that I devoured it. Just like The House in the Cerulean Sea, T.J. Klune’s newest book came just when I needed it most.Continue reading “ARC Review: Under the Whispering Door”

Release Day + ARC Review: The Ophelia Girls

Hi friends! I hope you’re all soaking in the rest of this wonderful summer (unless you’re in the Southern hemisphere) as it sneakily slips through our fingers. Not that I’m complaining – I’m 100% a fall stan and I’m already getting into spooky mode, but seriously how are we 8 months into 2021? Anyways, todayContinue reading “Release Day + ARC Review: The Ophelia Girls”

ARC Review: The King of Infinite Space

Happy Wednesday, everyone! I am back from my working-while-traveling-trip with my family and I promptly slept for 12 hours upon arriving back home. It’s been quite emotional because tomorrow is my 25th birthday and it sucks that a) they’re gone and b) I have work…but oh well. Now that I have recovered and gotten myContinue reading “ARC Review: The King of Infinite Space”

Book Review: Ace of Spades

Happy Monday, bibliophiles! It has been a minute but I promise I’ve got a good reason – I’m seeing my parents after nearly two years!!! They live in Thailand and were supposed to visit me right before COVID hit and well…you can fill in the rest. Since I’m interning, I can’t really take time offContinue reading “Book Review: Ace of Spades”

Book Review: The Chosen and the Beautiful

Good morning and happy Monday, bibliophiles! I had a restful weekend filled with lots of reading, so my introverted heart is delighted.

Jordan Baker grows up in the mostContinue reading “Book Review: The Chosen and the Beautiful”

Pride Month TBR

Hello bibliophiles! Pride month is right around the corner and I thought it would be fun to compile books from my TBR that are written by LGBTQ+ authors and/or featuring queer main characters. I’m not going to be setting a specific TBR for June – with my internship starting, I want to keep the pressureContinue reading “Pride Month TBR”

Shadow and Bone: Thoughts & Reactions

I can’t even tell you how excited I have been to write this post. Here’s the thing – I love TV/movie adaptations of books. I know this isn’t necessarily a popular opinion among readers and I’ve often been left frustrated by adaptations as well, but I think the chance of them being good is soContinue reading “Shadow and Bone: Thoughts & Reactions”

May Hopefuls: Asian Heritage Month

Happy May, bibliophiles! I have been soooo excited because it is AAPI heritage month! I was born in India and spent my formative years in Thailand, so Asian culture and literature are near and dear to my heart. In light of all the anti-Asian rhetoric and rise in hate crimes, I think it’s more importantContinue reading “May Hopefuls: Asian Heritage Month”

2021 Women’s Prize for Fiction – Shortlist

The Women’s Prize for Fiction shortlist was just announced and it’s such a diverse selection of books. Of the six books shortlisted, I have read and loved two (The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett and Transcendent Kingdom by Yaa Gyasi), so I cannot wait to read the remaining four before the winner is announced onContinue reading “2021 Women’s Prize for Fiction – Shortlist”
