The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abbi Waxman – Thoughts

She thought of books as medication and sanctuary and the source of all good things. I think if I had a fantasy alternate life, I’d be living Nina Hill’s life. I literally felt like I was reading about a version of me living in a parallel universe! I think every reader who loves books toContinue reading “The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abbi Waxman – Thoughts”

American Gods by Neil Gaiman – Book Thoughts

What a book, guys. And what a story! I’m absolutely blown away and can’t wait to see the words on screen now. Sadly, the whole book hasn’t been converted into a complete series so I cant binge watch, but nevertheless, something is better than nothing 🙂 I decided to read this book, since I sawContinue reading “American Gods by Neil Gaiman – Book Thoughts”

The Institute by Stephen King – Book Thoughts

Finally, I read a Stephen King!! One popular, mainstream and much loved author, who was on my list to read forever. And I’m glad I read this book.

Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows #2) by Leigh Bardugo

This action will have no echo But this book and this duology and these characters have left behind a long lasting echo in my heart. What a splendid sequel! It’s very rare that sequels turn out to be as good or as gripping as the first of a series. I received everything I was expectingContinue reading “Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows #2) by Leigh Bardugo”
