Hiya everyone! Today I’m furiously typing on my background as I take part in a super interesting book tag. If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that I love Akemi Dawn Bowman and her books and I’m super hyped up for her upcoming release, Harley In The Sky 🙂 That’s why today […]
If any of you aren’t aware that I’m a crazy Type-A Personality with a love for lists and pie charts and statistics of any kind then you’re about to. Everyone has been doing these mid-year freakout tags but I wanted to do something different mainly because all those questions keep asking you about your favourites […]

So ever since I stopped writing wrap-ups(no regrets there) I’ve felt there may be some sort of disconnect between you all and me since those kinds of posts were where I could chat freely and just update you on my life in general. So I guess I am starting a new series of posts aka. […]
That’s right, I’m finally taking part in the Top Ten Tuesday meme! I have a confession… For the longest time I was afraid nobody would read these posts on my blog because my readers are only interested in reading about books, discussions and other stuff and not something related to me? Looking back I […]
Today on the blog we have ‘Secondhand Origin Stories’ by Lee Blauersouth as part of a blog tour organised by Shealea. You can go check out here beautiful site here!
Secondhand Origin Stories stars POC superheroes with amazing powers and LGBT representation, you definitely can’t go wrong with this book!
Official Goodreads Summary:
Opal has been planning to go to Chicago and join the Midwest’s superhero team, the Sentinels, since she was a little kid. That dream took on a more urgent tone when her superpowered dad was unjustly arrested for protecting a neighbor from an abusive situation. Now, she wants to be a superhero not only to protect people, but to get a platform to tell the world about the injustices of the Altered Persons Bureau, the government agency for everything relating to superpowers.
But just after Opal’s high school graduation, a supervillain with a jet and unclear motives attacks the downtown home of the Sentinels, and when Opal arrives, she finds a family on the brink of breaking apart. She meets a boy who’s been developing secret (and illegal) brain-altering nanites right under the Sentinel’s noses, another teenage superhero-hopeful who looks suspiciously like a long-dead supervillain, and the completely un-superpowered daughter of the Sentinels’ leader. Can four teens on the fringes of the superhero world handle the corruption, danger, and family secrets they’ve unearthed?
Let’s just say that I officially declare Becky Albertalli as my queen.
I love her book ‘Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda’ to death and can’t wait to see Love, Simon! I was hesistant in picking up ‘The Upside of Unrequited’ because I had great expectations from it passed my expectations with flying colors!
At this point I’m willing to read Becky’s grocery list too.
Ahm, onto what you all are here for, here’s my full review of this wonderful book- ‘The Upside of Unrequited’ by Becky Albertalli 🙂
It is every bookworm’s dream that all their friends and family read the millions of books they love so that they can rant hold long discussions on how the book ended on a cliffhanger yet again!
But when they come up to us to borrow that book… we actually get a mini heart-attack. I’ve had plenty of long discussions with fellow booknerds who desperately do not want to give their soul books to other people.
Because lending books is a life-changing decision and there should be proper one-on-one interviews before we even think of giving away our precious books.
Today is the official launch of the blog tour for ‘Esme’s Wish’- an exciting young-adult fantasy novel by Elizabeth Foster that will leave your mind reeling and heart throbbing for a magical adventure. My blog happens to be one of the first stops of this tour so I’m here to review Esme’s Wish and provide you with exciting bonus content like teasers and giveaways!
If you’re even the tiniest bit involved in books or blogging or the social world of book blogging there is no way you haven’t heard of Cait, more popularly know as @paperfury or the Queen of Book Blogging.
And I’m really happy to say that I got to interview her about her blog and upcoming YA contemporary book ‘A Thousand Perfect Notes’ which is coming out this June! I cannot even begin to tell you how I excited I am!
Combine hysterical dysfunctional families with murder and reality shows and you get ‘No Time for Goodbye’- an intense and captivating mystery thriller by ‘Linwood Barclay’ that will leave you shell shocked to the core. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars!
