Thoughts I Have While Writing Book Reviews

I had a wonderful time reading all your lovely posts for this prompt which I have linked down below 🙂

Can you believe Off Tangent Thoughts has been running since two weeks now?

I still feels so surreal to me, especially the fact that all of you have greeted it with so much of love and enthusiasm. I had a great time reading and laughing at all your different posts and I’ve been eagerly awaiting the day I could put up my second prompt post. And today is the day! Super pumped up for this one 🙂

The Dangerous Art Of Blending In: Book Review

I owe a huge apology to this wonderful book that I had promised I would review ‘soon’ but as usual my ‘soon’ turned into ‘late af’

I read The Dangerous Art of Blending In on the 1st of this month and today it’s the 19th.

Someone give me a pat on the back.

This had been a highly anticipated read of mine and it truly passed my expectations with flying colours. This book totally messed up my heart and brain and I probably filled a whole bucket with my tears. And it was only after finishing did I find out that this book is semi-autobiographical a.k.a loosely based off the author’s life.

Cue more tears.
