This post should have been up much earlier, but I got so busy during July plus I was in a bit of a block when it came to my blog, but today I sat down and finished this post and I’m so excited to share this.
If you didn’t know, I’m a very huge anime fan. Besides reading, watching anime is the one thing that I do to pass my time when days get too monotonous or boring (which is basically everyday). I’ve been watching anime since 2013, and over the years, I’ve watched many great ones and many that are not so great.
In this post, you will find some of my favorite animes that I’ve watched. Some might even be familiar as they are very popular titles, but I’ve done my best to also include some animes that I think are underrated. So without any further ado, here’s my list of anime recommendations!
June was a packed month for me. I had my final ever college exams and I graduated (woohoo!). I started this blog at the beginning of the month and I read a total of 19 books. A majority of these were ARCs that I requested through Netgalley (and I requested waaay too many); I also finally read a fantasy series that’s been on my TBR for a long time. Basically, June was a very productive month reading wise. I also blame this on me having exams, and yet still reading, so there’s that😅
But anyways, without further ado, here’s all the books I read this June!
June is nearly over and what better way to close off this month’s blog post than to do the ‘Mid-Year Book Freakout Tag’. I’ve seen a lot of my favorite booktubers and book bloggers do this tag and I thought I’d do it too. It is such a fun tag and I enjoyed coming up with answers to all the questions. Some of them even made me think a lot because it was hard to pick just one book as the answer. But yeah, all in all, I think this is the perfect post to wrap up my first month of blogging and mark the passing of the first six months of the year.
Without any further ado, here’s my answers! (And also, I don’t have anybody to tag so if you feel like doing this, consider yourself tagged by me 🙂 )
Alright, so for the first post of Let’s Talk, I had no difficulty in choosing the topic. As you’ve already read it in the title, today we are going to be talking about tropes.
So what exactly are tropes? To explain it in very simple words, tropes are essentially commonly recurring themes, literary devices, motifs and/or symbols in creative work. Whenever I’m looking for new reads, I often select ones based on the tropes they have. This way, I don’t accidentally end up buying books I know I won’t like.
I hope you all are having a wonderful day/night where you are! Today’s post is going to be a simple and short one, since it’s just to introduce something I have planned.
So, I’ve seen a lot of book blogs have discussions posts where they talk about a variety of topics (both bookish and non-book related) and I wanted to do something like that for my blog too. But at the same time, I also wanted to give it a fun name, just to add a little bit of ✨spice✨.But my creative juices were not working at all when I was trying to chose the name, so I was stuck with this simple one.
I was so honored when I got the chance to read Sisters Of The Snake early. This book has my whole heart and I’m truly truly delighted to share my review of this and ask you all to preorder it ASAP!
I received an e-ARC from the authors via Netgalley. This review is based on an advance copy; some things may differ in the final version. I’m also a part of the street team for the SOTS, though that has not affected my opinion of the book in any way.
The Jasmine Throne is one of my favorite 5 star reads from this year. I read it back in April and I was completely vowed by it. And I’m finally getting to writing the review, because it definitely took me a while to find enough words that could express how much I love this book. So, here we are.
Thank you to Netgalley and Orbit Books for providing me an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review! This review is based on an advance copy of the book. Some things may differ from the final version.
After falling in love with Elizabeth Lim’s writing in Spin The Dawn and Unravel The Dusk, I knew that Six Crimson Cranes would swiftly become one of my favorite fantasy reads. And so, I requested it on Netgalley and crossed my fingers and waited with bated breath, hoping my request was accepted. And bless the Netgalley gods, because my request was granted and I was so excited to start reading it!
Thank you to Netgalley and Hodder & Stoughton for providing me an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review! This review is based on an advance copy of the book. Some things may differ from the final version.
Now that I have started this book blog; for my first post I really wanted to do a tag through which I could introduce myself. So, inspired by the ‘Booktube Newbie Tag’ on YouTube, I’m gonna be a doing a ‘Book Blog Newbie Tag’, which is essentially the same thing as the former, only the questions are more related to book blogging.
The original tag, along with it’s questions was created by Brenda C. on YouTube!
