Discussion Post: Book Titles That Make Great Band Names

Hey Pals! Today, I’m going to be talking about 7 book titles that I think would be great as song band names! Ashmita @ the fictional journal did a post recently where she talked about various characters that would dance on Taylor Swift’s songs. Plus I guess Jesse @ Jesse The Reader (who is an amazing Booktuber) did a tag where he talked about books as song and band names. So, inspired by both of them, I decided to see how well I would do with such a post. So, thanks for the inspiration. Without further ado, let’s get started!

Note: This is a discussion post so feel free to share your views down in the comments.


1: Skyhunter by Marie Lu

If you just add an ‘s’ after the title and make it Skyhunters, I think that would be a pretty cool name. Though it would seem kind of ethereal, it would be unique too.


2: The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater

This one was used by Jesse too, and I really like the vibe of it. It somehow fits. I think this will make a popular boy band that will have deep, hard-hitting songs and a night-ish aesthetic.


3: The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken

So, this one would be a little controversial because this would either be the most popular band or the least known out there…I mean, The Darkest Minds! What a name! It would definitely have songs featuring dark humor. We love that, don’t we? ๐Ÿ˜ƒ


4: What If It’s Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera

This one miiight have been inspired by Why Don’t We because it’s kinda cool to have such a name, confuses the people who have never heard of the band before. Hey, I think Iโ€™m getting at this naming band thing!!


5: Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody

Oh god, this would be like that super cool band with swoon-worthy guys who are actually pretty sweet inside, or a band of badass girls like those of BlackPink….hm yeah, I’m definitely getting good at this ๐Ÿ˜Ž.


6: Loveless by Alice Oseman

This would make a great band name for both male and female bands. I think the band would have songs either like those of Billie Eillish, or ones that are like Brutal by Olivia Rodrigo, girls screaming their heads off ๐Ÿ˜†.


7: Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

I saved the best one for last, because you have to accept the fact that no other book title surpasses all others in being a band name! Plus, it is Six of Crows guys, SIX OF CROWS!!!!


Man, this was harder than I thought, and I’m not exactly satisfied with the results ๐Ÿ˜•. But I hope you liked this post. My creativity cells were dead when I wrote it ๐Ÿ˜ต.

Anyways, that was all. I hope you liked it. Let me know a book title that you think would look cool as a band name ๐Ÿ˜€!

Discussion Post: 5 Popular Books I Did Not Like

Hey Pals!! Today, I will be sharing with you some popular books that I did not like. Once again, wow what a long intro, but I have tests coming up and I am writing this in a hurry and my intros are never really long anyways so I guess, this is longer than usual, for which I expect to receive a good amount of praise ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ”ช.

Disclaimer: ๐Ÿฅฑ

Note: This is a discussion post so feel free to share your views in the comments. Now, let’s get started!


1: The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne

This is a historical fiction novel set in the time of World War 2 and written from the perspective of a 9-year-old who is an absolute moron and can’t even pronounce the word “Fuhrer” ‘cuz let’s accept it: kids are that dumb. This book has the most pathetic writing style I have ever read, and being the awesome critic that I am (bragging intended ๐Ÿ™‚), I couldn’t even bear to read this without cringing. If I frown every time this book used the phrase “mouth in the shape of an O and eyes wide”, I would become a permanent sulker and all happiness would be stripped from y’all’s lives ‘cuz obviously, what would happen to you if I stopped making you all laugh!? ๐Ÿ™„

This book was super boring, there was absolutely nothing interesting about it. It did get better halfway through when the main character (I don’t even remember his name) befriended a Jew kid in a concentration camp who looked exactly like him, which, by the way, was a very obvious attempt by the author to show everybody is equal. The ending was just as weird, it felt like it was written just to show the cruelty of war and not very well executed. This book had a solid plot, but the worst execution ever. Didn’t enjoy it at all.


2: A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’engle

I reread this book this year because I had loved it the first time I had read it 2 years ago, but now? Man do I have issues. This book was so weird…and not in a good way. There was too much telling and not even a little showing. I can’t even remember the number of times Calvin, this random guy, shows signs of caring for our main character- Meg, (whom I hate more than online classes). Meg is probably the most frustrating character I have ever read, and that says a lot because I have read about characters like Clary Fray. The characters were all awful and everything felt exaggerated. Important scenes were not written with enough….well, importance. This book was just so clichรฉ and so badly executed, I wanted to throw it at the wall and never see it again ๐Ÿ˜ค.


3: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins

I read this book last year itself and it was a pain in the butt. This book was so boring, like oh-so-boring ๐Ÿ˜ญ, I can’t even…ugh! It took me ages to finish this. At one point I got so annoyed that I skipped complete pages and yet I was still able to figure out enough of what was happening. This book was not bad, but if only it had been shorter I would have enjoyed it. I found Mockingjay boring too, but this was just another level. When I read it, the only thing I liked was the ending, which was very shocking, but looking back on it, it seemed pretty forced and Snow did not previously show any signs of doing “such” a thing. But well, it was still thrilling and that saved the book for me, but I still do not like it.


4: The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

This book was not bad at all, it was pretty clever and it was even funny at times. I listened to the audiobook and the narration was good. The thing is, this book was too clever if that makes sense. The author made impossible things sound so possible and so exaggerated that after a point, it just crossed the limit. It was so confusing, I would read one chapter and not get a single word. This was a good book, but it did not work well for me. Even though I love science-fiction, I am not sure if I will continue with the rest of the series.


5: The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan

Yes, sadly enough, I did not enjoy this book. After having finished the Heroes of Olympus series, I went into this book with expectations higher than Leo’s dragon- Festus can fly. And boy was I disappointed. This book had a great concept, seriously. I liked the idea of a God being turned mortal and I even liked how it was portrayed, but I did not feel anything else throughout the whole story. I just kept reading because I did not want to DNF this, and it was such a tiring journey ๐Ÿ˜ด.

1) this book follows the same plotlines as every typical Rick Riordan book out there, and I have had enough of that. 2) this book was really slow and boring even, the lack of involvement of the seven main characters from the previous series did less to lift my spirits. And D) the plot itself felt very flat. After reading Heroes of Olympus, I was expecting some super grave, life-threatening danger, worse than Gaia herself. However, the danger in this book was so underwhelming that I don’t even remember what it was in the first place. People do tell me that the series gets better, but I never really continued.

*sighs deeply*

Top Ten Tuesday: Titles or Covers that make me Want to Read the Book

Hey Pals!! Today, after a veryyyy long time, Iโ€™m doing a Top Ten Tuesday post.

For those unaware: Top Ten Tuesday used to be a weekly post hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, but was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. โ€œIt was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.โ€

The topic for this week is: Titles or Covers that make me Want to Read the Book. Without further ado, letโ€™s get started.

So here are 10 out of a billion books that I have judged because of their mesmerising covers or breathtaking titles because letโ€™s face it: I judge books and I will keep judging them shamelessly ๐Ÿ™‚.


1: The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiegvater

The pure reason I want to read this series is because of its covers, because hands down, they are too good to be true! I don’t even think I will like this series all that much, I heard it has beautiful writing and I don’t like that in books, plus I am really not in the mood for any new worlds, but I don’t freaking care, I want these gorgeous delights!


2: On The Fence by Kasie West

Did I tell you I am kinda done with contemporary books? Because yeah, I am. But look at this cover, I might just die with cuteness overload! A guy who is thin, wears a white T-shirt and jeans? This cover artist has brought to life exactly what my ideal guy would look like (not talking about personality here, we’re talking about looks). Let’s just ignore the fact that we can’t see his face, and assume he has Damon-like hair.


3: These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong

Yes, I still haven’t read this book! The cover artist of this book deserves an applause *here I actually applaud*. I don’t think this is the most original cover out there, but I love it nonetheless. Not to mention, I do not think I will like this book either, like I said- high fantasy is a no for me right now. But the cover!!


4: This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

The font of this title is everything! I have actually tried reading this book two times, but I always gave up after the first two chapters. I don’t think the way author kept using the word “monsters” fits well with me. But the cover guys, the COVER!!


5: The Knife Of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness

It’s the title for this one. Doesn’t this title intrigue you? I mean, what a clever way to title your book, just name it something that makes sense just as much as it doesn’t make sense and bam! Readers buy the book only to avoid dying with suspense ๐Ÿ™‚.


6: Ace Of Shades by Amanda Moody

I love classy this cover is, and I love the word shades in the title. I don’t even know what this book is about so don’t bother asking me ‘cuz I am too busy gawking at the cover ๐Ÿคค.


7: And I Darken by Kiersten White

See what I meant by These Violent Delights’ cover not being the most original one out there? For this one, once again, it is both the title and the cover. And I Darken is such a mysterious title, if only kids like us knew how to title our imaginary books like this. *sighs*


8: The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren

This title has always sounded very quirky to me and the cover in itself is just too cute. But once again, I never picked it up due to the fact that contemporary is not my comfort genre anymore.


9: Dial A For Aunties by Jesse Q Sutanto

I mean ๐Ÿ˜†, this title. I even started reading this book, I started the audiobook because I was unable to sleep…fortunately this book made me fall asleep and after 2-3 chapters, I woke up and realized that the book is on and shut it and went to sleep again, never bothering to pick it up again.


10: They Went Left by Monica Hesse

This is a historical fiction novel set after the events of World War 2. I like the title because it sort of depicts how most people would take the right path, but here, the characters took left, I guess, I don’t know, I just like it.


That’s all for me. Have you read any of these books? What are your thoughts on them? Do you think I should give any of ’em a shot? What is a book you want to read only because of its cover? Let me know in the comments ๐Ÿ˜€

10 Reasons Why Reading is the Best of Hobbies

1: It kills boredom– Even when we are not reading, we can always think about books, research books, blog about books, review books and what not!? Reading is the best way to fight loneliness.

2: It is a healthy addiction– Except of harming your eyesight a little, reading is an addiction that is totally safe and fun. Oh! And audiobooks are an option for the eyesight thingy.

3: It helps us escape realitySometimes Most of the times, the real world just doesnโ€™t feel all that great. At that time, we can always escape into the fantasy world of our favorite book.

4: Words have a lot of power– Some good novels can actually give great life lessons to learn and help become a better person.

5: It relieves stress, anger and melancholy– Whenever we are not in a good mood, books are the best way to bring us back to our happy selves.

6: Books donโ€™t know the art of betrayal– They are one of the most loyal companions who forget every sin you did to them and are always there for you even on your darkest nights ๐Ÿ˜Œ.

7: The Art of Writing– Reading books inspires us to write some of our own and thus, we think deeply about the profession of a writer.

8: Readers are great friends– A reader friend is NOT boring. They are the best of listeners, they always have great advice and can really inspire you sometimes. Also, if you are a reader too, then having a friend who is into reading is goals, man.

9: Netflix and Chill? Ummm… Not me– Readers do watch movies and stuff but Netflix isnโ€™t their medium for survival. A book party is what they can always have.

10: Most Readers have great vocabulary- You ever met Klaus Baudelaire? Heโ€™s a living dictionary. And in some way, we are too. We know the meaning of a lot of good words and thus, have good writing and communication skills. Only, we may not talk that often as we are mostly reading but that doesn’t mean that we are boring. When will people understand that ๐Ÿ™„!?


So if you are reading this, why donโ€™t you go read a novel or something and experience the pleasures of reading yourself!?

Discussion Post: Why I Don’t Read Self-Help Books

Hey pals!! Today I am bringing you a post about why I don’t find myself reading self-help books and why I think my reason, if not right or popular, at least makes some sense.

Not me realizing it is high time I post something meaningful instead of full stops for blog names and commas for comments ๐Ÿ™‚

Note: I don’t mean to insult anyone’s opinions. I am just sharing my own opinions. Also, this is a discussion post so feel free to share your views in the comments.


Firstly, they sound hella boring. They feel like a long, tiring lecture that hardly helps. Everything just crowds inside of my brain and nothing makes much sense at all. It’s like getting a thousand pieces of advice all at once. I know there are some wonderful books out there, I might even read them someday. And though I know a few of these books can even make an impact on me, I just don’t find myself interested.

I avoid non fiction. It sounds too real and I read to escape this world, to escape the cruelty of humanity for at least that small period of time. To some point, even autobiographies are interesting because they at least have a plot, a story. Self-help books are completely different. They stretch on and on, with no meaningful story at all. Just hey-this-is-how-to-become-a better-individual stuff.

Mainly, I find the concept kind of weary. All the this-book-will-change-your-life thingy doesn’t interest me and I find it hard to believe. Also, they act as if they are great books when in reality, most of the advice is not even required. They give us advice on things we don’t even think about and that makes me feel useless.

Okay, I know this GIF is unnecessary, but helllllo, Spongebob!!!

What is believable is instead of giving tips about what to improve and how to be better, I would like to read about it in the form of a story. It’s like in a story or tale I witness those lessons instead of reading about them. And the concept of reading this thing seems boring while if I am going through an incident that will make me learn, that is something that leaves an impact. And storybooks are the best way to do it.

Another major reason is that the main focus of a self-help book is to help us become better people, so these books are filled with tips and tips and tips on self-improvement. And instead of feeling like a book, they feel like my school’s morning assembly which tries to give so much information that most of it just goes out of the head ๐Ÿ˜ช.

To summarize, I feel that self-help books give one so much information that hardly any of it sticks with them. On the other hand, if one is reading a random fantasy novel that they are loving and it has some random quotes thrown here and there, I feel like that’s what has a profound impact.

Now, I am not saying that these books are bad or that they do not help you at all. What I mean is that they teach us 100 things and only 10 of those things can fit into our little minds.


Now, I want to hear all of your thoughts on self-help books. Do you agree with me? Why? Do you disagree with me? Why? Let me know in the comments so we can all chat.

So, that was it! The basic reasons why I don’t read self-help books. Don’t forget to share all of your thoughts on this too.

Discussion Post: 7 Popular Books I Will Probably Never Read

Hey Pals!! So, today I’m going to be sharing 5 Popular Books that I have No Interest in Reading. Without much ado, let’s get started. Yeah, cause I really don’t know what else I can do with the intro ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜.

Note: I do not mean to insult the following books or their authors. I do not mean to hurt anyone’s opinions. Also, this is a discussion post, so feel free to share your views in the comments.


1: The Kissing Booth by Beth Reekles

This was one of the cringiest films I’ve ever watched and being someone who barely dislikes movies, it says a lot when I say that absolutely I hated it. This movie was just ugh. It was so clichรฉ and so obvious. It was worse than just the normal clichรฉ that we usually see in contemporary stories where the authors or directors can make the story better through a fine plot progression but in this movie, none of that! I found it super awful and cringey so I’m never reading this book. Rant over.


2: 50 Shades of Grey by E L James

Don’t really need a reason for this one now, do I? I am never watching the movie and never reading the book. I want to stay away from the kind of “stuff” this book offers for as long as I can, and I can do that pretty easily considering I have endless books on my TBR.


3: Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

I have read one book by this author- An Enchantment of Ravens, which I DNFed after reading half of it. The reason is that this author has a very metaphorical writing, and it’s very descriptive when it comes to nature, and I personally do not enjoy beautiful writing in books. I love it in poems, but in books, nope! So I to conclude, I know that I won’t enjoy this book, so why waste my time on it?


4: The Heir by Kiera Cass

This is the sequel (though I like to call it companion novel) to The One by Kiera Cass. It follows the story of the daughter of the main character and I just don’t wanna read it because for some reason, I feel like I won’t like it. Firstly, this book is kind of unnecessary, and it’s also not loved by the majority of fans of the original trilogy. I remember absolutely loving The Selection trilogy, and its characters, but from what I know, those characters don’t even play a major role in this book, which I don’t find interesting.


5: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k by Mark Manson

Okay so, we all know that this is a truly popular motivational novel. And that’s basically it! The reason why I am not interested in this book. Because I don’t freaking read self-help books. They sound soooo real, and I read to escape real, not to find myself immersed in it.


6: 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher

From what I know, this book deals with some very mature topics like suicide, mental health, and a lot more. And it’s also a pretty sad and depressing read as people say it, so I’m.not really inclined towards reading it. I have to admit that I’m kind of intrigued by it but I don’t think my little brain would be able to handle such stuff so I’ll just avoid it for now.


7: Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins

The reason I’m not going to be reading this book is that I wasn’t that big a fan of The Hunger Games trilogy or its prequel, both being written by the same author. Plus I don’t like the cover of this book, or the synopsis (which I haven’t even read by the way ๐Ÿ™‚) so I will probably never give it a shot. Plus, committing to another series when I’ve got so many unfinished ones already is pretty hard. Do you feel the same way ๐Ÿค”? Do you ever feel that you want to read a book but can’t commit to another series? ‘Cause I certainly do.


So, that was all for me. What are your thoughts on this? Have you read any of these books? What are your thoughts on them? Should I maybe give any of them a shot? Let me know all in the comments ๐Ÿ˜€.

Discussion Post: 5 Drawbacks of Being a Reader (or 4 cause I can’t really think of 5 ๐Ÿง)

Hey Pals!! Today, I am going to be sharing 5 Drawbacks of Being a Reader…kind of.

So, being a reader, we readers are constantly in the habit of telling people the benefits of reading and just how much reading helps us and brings us happiness. But every thing in life has its disadvantages and while we may try to oversee them at all points, we can’t deny that this beautiful, heavenly and joyous act of reading also has some drawbacks. Today, I am going to be sharing 5 such drawbacks that I have come across. Here they are are:

Note: This is a discussion post, so feel free to share your veiews down in the comments.


1: People expect me to be a writer

While reading increases our vocabulary and broadens our imagination, it doesn’t mean that every reader aspires to be a writer someday. It doesn’t mean that every reader sees in them the potential to be a writer someday. I personally, have been in several situations where people not only want me, but expect me to be a writer, considering I read so much and also post tons of writing blogs. And this may come as a surprise but I am not sure if I really want to be a writer.

I think that I have fine writing skills, not maybe good but fine, and if I try, I can become quite an author. But there is just so much pressure that it takes the fun away. It may not really sound like much of a drawback, but sometimes it can be petty overwhelming for me.


2: It makes me hate the real world to an extent that is not healthy

We all know why readers read- to escape reality. Sometimes, I start to think so much about the lives of book characters that I begin hating my life and begin overthinking everything about it, and it has changed my outlook on several things that I would have preferred to see in a different way. At times I just feel like all I want is to escape this reality, to run away from it, and it makes me so ungrateful yet I still keep feeling this way. And it is not a healthy way to feel at all as it gives me nothing but pain.


3: It harms my eyesight

I don’t understand why people aren’t bothered by this at all, considering that fact that I freak out on a daily basis due to this. The major reason I avoid e-books and buy physical copies of books only if the audiobook is not available is due to the fact that I already wear glasses and don’t want my number to increase any further. I already use mobile phone too much, and reading through laptop or phone further adds to my screen time.


4: At times, reading gets me so engrossed that it affects my schedule

Except…there’s only one thing in it: yes, you guessed right- reading ๐Ÿ™‚

We all know how this feels. We keep reading a book so much that all we care for are the lives of our favourite characters, and I know full well how freaking hard it is to put the book down and study for your finals which are happening in less than a fortnight. At times, I just keep on reading and waste valuable time in that, and regret later when I begin stressing about exams!


I had to think A LOT to come up with the final point and it still does not fully apply to me, and hence the title of the post is the way it is. So, forgive me!! ๐Ÿ˜‚

5: People keep judging for no reason

I’ll be honest, I’m besides the point in my life where I’m bothered by people who judge me due to the fact that I’m reading. But sometimes, it can be a little exhausting. But as I said again, it doesn’t bother me much and not many people judge me anyways, but when they do, all it does it remove them from my good books. So yeah, I included this point taking in view that just because I’m not bothered, doesn’t mean others aren’t. Some people, I’m pretty sure, might find it really hard to deal with all the judgemental people and it makes them less of a “socializer”. So people, get your judgy eyes off us please. We’re probably way better than you, go get a mirror and judge the person who stares back instead.


Despite all this, reading still rocks! And all these points easily get overshadowed due to my love for it.

So, that was all. What are your thoughts on this? Do you relate to any of this stuff being a reader? Is there any other drawback you feel like you experience being a reader? And if you’re not a reader, what did it feel like having an insight of our lives? Let me know all in the comments ๐Ÿ˜€.

5 Light and Heartwarming Books to read this Valentine…โ€œ๐Ÿ™‚โ€

Hey Pals!! Today, I am here to share five books that you should read on Valentine’s Day… ๐Ÿ˜š๐Ÿ™‚

Note: This list consists of the most light-hearted, fun, sweet and heartwarming books, with amazing love stories ๏ฅฐ. It totally does NOT deal with any gory, horror, sad and depressing stuff. I’ll say that again- it does NOT… โ€œ๐Ÿ™‚โ€ . So, let’s begin then!!


1: Animal Farm by George Orwell

This book NAILS it for romance. Don’t believe me? Have a look at the pink cover. A bunch of animals rebelling against their master under the leadership of a corrupt pig? Sure gimme that. What else could you want on this Valentine!?

The romance in this book was epic! From humans being overthrown by a flock of geese to pigs singing songs in the dead of the night, the love story in this book is just apt! A truly must-read on Valentine’s Day ๏ฅฐ.


2: A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket

In this series, three children are trying to flee from the clutches of their evil uncle who decides to show up after their parents’ deaths to be their legal guardian and spends the entirety of the 13 books in the series trying to kill his nephew and nieces. This oh-so-romantic tale will have you swooning ๐Ÿ˜.


3: Coraline by Neil Gaiman

See…the list just keeps getting better and better ๐Ÿ˜ƒ.

This book follows the story of a girl who has just moved to her new house, and while exploring strange places as is obviously ๐Ÿ™„ the habit of every typical YA female protagonist, she finds out some awfully romantic things. Here they are, why don’t I show you ๐Ÿ™‚:

From fake mothers with black buttons for eyes to spirits of lost souls trapped in closets, the romance in this book will have you gushing till you can gush no more ๐Ÿ˜ƒ.


4: Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds

Want a light read? Sure. This book deals with the three most non-serious topics of all time- death, grief and gun violence.

The light-heartedness of this book makes me sigh. *sighs dramatically ๐Ÿ˜Œ*

The book starts in such a way that you know it’s going to be a love story better than Titanic as…it starts with the main character trying to control his emotions after his brother has been shot to death ๐Ÿ˜€.

Throughout the entirety of the book, we encounter the “usual” YA characters like ghost visitors who come to give a piece of advice to this boy on his way to kill his brother’s murderer.

I bet you got your perfect pick for 14th Feb then…if you don’t, I still have one more bomb to drop.


Adding the cherry ๐Ÿ’ to the cake ๐ŸŽ‚, I have…๐Ÿ™‚

5: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins ๐Ÿ˜

If you still haven’t read this book, read it specifically on Valentine’s Day and thank me later ๐Ÿ˜Š.

Yeah so, this book has the usual romantic drama, what with the two main characters falling in love with each other… Oh and did I mention, falling in love with each other on top of battling to stay alive among 22 other kids in an arena where only one can come out alive, and the rest are either killed…or worse.

So be ready to be a part of a world where the oh-so-unclichรฉd love triangle between the average best friend and the new handsome guy is wrapped up in the most unexpected way possible.

Well then, happy reading The Hunger Games!๐Ÿ™‚


So, those were all the overly heartwarming books to read this Valentine’s Day โ˜บ๐Ÿ’–. Let me know your thoughts on them down below.

Discussion Post: 5 Books I Meant to Read in 2020 but Just Couldn’t

Hey Pals!! Today, I’m going to sharing 5 out of a gazillion books that I had intended to read in 2020, but as is the case with every typical, procrastinating, weird book lover, was just not able to ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜‚.

This post was inspired by Kaya @ A Fictional Bookworm . So, thanks for the inspiration. Do check out her post, it was really cool!

Note: This is a discussion post, so feel free to share your views down in the comments so we can all chat.


1: The Girl who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhil

The cover! The title! The hype! Nothing else matters, I really wanted to read this book just because of these three factors. But as soon as I got my hands on it, all my excitement vanished. Please tell me it’s happened to you too and I’m not alone ๐Ÿ˜ญ.


2: Specials by Scott Westerfeld

Can I just say that the first two books in this trilogy- Uglies and Pretties, are utterly fantastic! I loved the first book, and I liked the second book too, and I just can’t wait to get to the third one. This is such a thin book, and I really wanted to finish the series, but I just don’t know why I never felt like reading it. Hope to get to it this year.


3: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

At this point, I’m actually really ashamed for not having read this book. Seriously, who am I kidding!? I am already in love with the synopsis, and I haven’t read many fiction books that deal with serious issues, so I’m like really excited to give this one a shot. Hopefully, I’ll end up loving it just as much as everyone else.


4: Save the Date by Morgan Matson

I have been meaning to try this author’s books since a really long time now and I had finally decided to start with Save the Date, but…will it be weird to say that I don’t even have a proper reason for not picking it up, except that I just wasn’t in the mood? I hope not.


5: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

I had literally even started this book and was like one or two chapters in when I stopped cause a) I didn’t feel like reading another series cause b) It requires a lot of commitment when c) The first book is pretty long in itself and d) The hate opinions about it kinda turned me off. So, there you go!


Bonus book which nobody asked for ๐Ÿ˜ƒ:

6: The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

I.Love.This.Book’s.Cover ๐Ÿ˜! *makes a mental note to buy it on her birthday, so the long wait can finally be over*


So, that was all for me. What are your thoughts on it? Have you read any of these books? What is a book you meant to read in 2020, but were never able to? Let me know in the comments ๐Ÿ˜€.
