Hello friends! I’m super excited that Pondathon is back with a garden theme this time and I’m literally bouncing up and down, all ready to get started 🙂 I’ve decided that this is going to be my masterpost for the readathon where I’m going to set my goals and update my progress. WHAT IS THE […]
All TBRs are intimidating. I mean they just stand there all tall and burly, glaring down at us as if we’ve committed a crime. I mean it’s not really our fault that they keep growing… But even on your TBR there will certainly be some book that you are the most intimidated by. You may […]
Hello everyone! A few days ago I said enough is enough. The number of books I wanted to read were piling over to a humongous number of 480 which just made me terribly anxious. Every time I opened Goodreads my eyes would pop out and I would start to sweat. And so I decided to […]
I don’t even need to ask this question, I know that your TBR is a hot mess. It’s like a side effect of being a reader. Oh, you like reading books? Congratulations, now you’ll have hundreds and hundreds of books on your TBR which keeps growing by the day, but never enough time to read […]
All those unread books on my shelf are staring at me as I write this post. The books that I won in giveaways or have been gifted to me can still be justified to remain unread. Maybe I don’t like their genre or maybe I participated in that giveaway without thinking. Okay yeah, even those […]

OTT PROMPT THOUGHTS YOU HAVE WHILE WATCHING BOOKTUBE I’ve been absolutely addicted to youtube since as long as I can remember! I mean what’s not to like? And once I found booktube, I found heaven. I’ve subscribed to countless booktubers and watched numerous videos about books until my eyes glazed over so it’s only fair […]
Hi everyone! I’m a teeny bit late with this post but let’s just ignore that, okay? Let me just start off by saying that I love readathons! My favourite part is probably making up my TBR for the readathon, especially when I’m trying to go for multiple readathons and merge all the TBRs to the […]
Hello there! If you aren’t dying under the list of bookish challenges you’ve taken up for this year then here’s one you really need to get going with. Year of the Asian Reading Challenge 2019 or YARC for short is a year long reading challenge where readers aim to read as many books as possible […]

Let’s just admit it, okay. Everyone needs to go on a social media detox. I’m not just talking about book bloggers, bloggers or any book readers. I’m talking about every single person who is on social media. Don’t worry, I’m not here to preach and you’ve probably heard and ignored it when people tell you […]
What better than planning for November before October ends? A few weeks ago Louise @Foxes and Fairytales contacted me through Twitter about a Greek mythology related readathon and even before I finished reading her message I was screaming yes! Basically Mythothon is a month long readathon from 1st to 30th November in your timezone. While […]
Earlier you would find booknerds with broken backs and an unending stack of their to-be-read books that they carry with them, which would ultimately result in their death. As if that wasn’t enough there is an added weight of ARCs that we run after like crazy and then promptly stash on our TBR piles. Am […]
Hiya everyone! I’m emerging from my pile of books to finally attend to this wonderful and exciting tag that I was nominated for by Shealea @That Bookshelf Bitch. Thank you so much! This was such a long time ago so I had to dig it up from the dead but here we are 😛 Now as […]
For some reason nobody has been talking about this very crucial topic in the bookish community, so guess who took the charge?
That’s right, me! Today we’re going to talk about book reviews, you know those long-ass strings of words that us bookworms pour their heart and soul into?
Reading a book is easy but reviewing it is not.
Not only does composing a good book review take long hours but sometimes you accidentally ruin the book for yourself bh over analyzing every single word. Which is why I respect all the book bloggers out there internally screaming as they churn out reviews day after day, you guys deserve a medal. But at the same time, I get really annoyed by blogs that are solely based on book reviews and have no other content whatsoever.
Ask any bookworm what their haven is, the answer will always be curling up in their comfy bed with an unending supply of books, food and coffee/tea.
See, we’re such simple creatures.
But have you ever wondered why we like to stay holed up in our bedrooms instead of venturing outside with our books? Because reading in public is a complicated process that may involve inevitable death due to embarrassment. And apparently I do have a death wish because you can frequently(read: always) find me reading in public.
And so I decided to make a list of pros and cons of reading books in public because I’m obsessed with lists and have a severe need to analyse everything. But this can be very useful for you, so keep reading on!
