Top 5 Thursday | Book series I want to read

I’ve been meaning to write on this topic for a while but I kept pushing it back. Over the years, a number of book series have been published, which I desperately wanted to read but never got around to them. This prompt is specifically for those book series that have been on my TBR list for a very long time and I do *hopefully* plan to read them soon.

First Lines Monday

First Lines Monday is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words.  I found this post on Becky’s Book Blog and I loved it so much I decided to try it out. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  1. Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  2. Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  3. Finally… reveal the book!

This is going to be a regular feature on my blog and I cannot wait to reveal some fun books to you all. If you have any ideas or new titles, do comment below and let me know.

She hadn’t planned for this, of course. Why would she? Most things deemed great and terrible begin insignificantly enough and when gazing back on it all, she would remind herself that a belief in this notion was blameless

This is a story that I’m currently reading and will review soon. I’m really excited about what this one brings!

This is a romantic suspense novel inspired by true events. The hero is Mr Perfect when he is with the heroine.

How to get out of a reading slump?

We all have good reading days and bad readings days. What do you do when the bad ones just keep going on? 

We, bookworms, sometimes stumble in bad times when, as much as we try, we can’t seem to read. Lots of lovely books that need reading on our to-be-read shelf, new books releasing every day, but we can’t seem to read. Yep, those are the worst days!

Paperbacks vs Kindle

In an age where technology is taking over most of the print media, we still have books. Be it school books, fiction or non-fiction, books are still being published.

I have been an avid reader since I was taught to spell. The love just grew from 25 pages to 50 pages to 100 pages to 300 and 600 and it goes on. During my school days, I’ve been caught with storybooks under my chemistry or physics books multiple times. Any regrets? None whatsoever.

I’ve been hoarding books since I can remember but recently by family gifted me a kindle as a graduation present. I’ve been torn between paperbacks and ebooks since then. Here’s my list of pros and cons for each.

In talks with Hayley Reese Chow

It’s been a great time reviewing books and I thought why not share a few things about their authors as well. Here’s one of my first author interviews with Hayley Reese Chow, author of Odriel’s Heirs.

Hayley Reese Chow has short and flash fiction featured or upcoming in Lite Lit One, The Drabble, Bewildering Stories, Teleport Magazine, and Rogue Blades Entertainment’s omnibus, AS YOU WISH!

Until recently though, she’s mostly done a lot of things that have nothing at all to do with writing. Her hat collection includes mother, wife, engineer, USAF veteran, reservist, four-time All American fencer, 100-mile ultramarathoner, triathlete, world traveler, voracious reader, and super-nerd.

Hayley currently lives in Florida with two small wild boys, her long-suffering
husband, and her miniature ragehound.

But at night, when the house is still, she writes.

Pottermore Sorting

Back when all Potterheads were given the amazing portal that was Pottermore, I like everybody, signed up for it and played on it for hours and hours. Trying to perfect a potion or get the perfect arc for a spell was the only thing I could think of.

Then life happened and I lost track of what was happening on Potter. Recently, while reading articles I came across an article by The Little Contemporary Corner on Pottermore Sorting and I decided to give it a try.
