Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Hello, hello lovelies! It’s been so long and it’s great to finally have the time to read and write about it again. College is hectic and keeps me so busy. I’m trying something different this time and I hope you guys like it. I’ve been meaning to read this book ever since it was released and I’ve finally managed to pick it up.


So I’m 13 chapters in and I’m really liking it so far. When it was published, people kept comparing it with the Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, so naturally, I wanted to read that first. So far I think Julian might have some selfish reasons but, he is kinder and nicer than he leads others to believe. I find Scarlett quite naive and Donatella self-serving, but oh well! Scarlett has finally figured out that this year’s challenge is going to be to find Tella and that she won’t be able to make it home in time for her wedding and Julian reassures her that Tella would be kept in a good condition because they were Grandmaster Legend’s “special” guests. Scarlett and Julian start on their journey to find Scarlet’s sister. Scarlett is mesmerised by the pretty and magical sites. And…I might be falling in love with Julian. Just a little bit. A teeny tiny bit really. Scarlett’s knowledge about her sister and her likes and dislikes and Julian’s practical tact and grip have helped them so far. I’m excited to read further!


Uh, I managed to last just 2 days with this book. And now I am absolutely in love with Julian. From the beginning, I thought Scarlett was naive and a little dumb, but man, oh man, was I wrong! She’s so smart, the way she found the clues and the way her brain worked, it was incredible. Also, was there something wrong with Scarlett’s fiance? I just felt that there was something off  about that guy, like something just didn’t add up or something. The whole plot with Julian was so mysterious because I knew he wasn’t telling the entire truth, but when he died? I might have shed a tear. And then Tella jumps from the balcony. I was pretty much done and devastated at this point. But I still wanted to know what was going to happen next. And let me tell you, I really was not expecting the whole coming back to life thing, and the whole story with Tella and Legend.

I am completely in love with this book, the writing, the storyline, the plot, everything. And I really cannot wait for the sequel to know what happens next with Tella. One thing I do know for sure is that I want Scarlett and Julian to still be a serious thing in the next book. They need their happily ever after, dammit!

I would seriously recommend this book to anybody who likes even a little bit of fantasy, magic and mystery in their books.

Also, would you guys suggest what I should read next?

Hi guys. I know, I know it’s been so long. I cannot even begin to tell you how sorry I am.

The last few months have been hectic, to say in the least. I just started college and this course keeps me super busy. So many times I wanted to come back here, but I just didn’t have the time to read something and write about it, you know?

Anyway, I just started a new book! I know, so exciting right? So its Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance by Ruth Emmie Lang. I’m about 30% done with it and I’m really enjoying it.Do check it out on Goodreads.

Books aside, how do you deal with pain that comes with disappointing the people in your life? Drop me a comment.

Till next time.

The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken

Wow, it’s been a stupidly long time since I posted anything! So, I’ve finished This Savage Song and Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab and there is nothing that I can tell you about them, apart from READ THEM, THEY’RE AWESOME! This was the first time that I’ve read Victoria Schwab’s work and I’m just completely in love with it now. The ending destroyed me.

So coming back on track, immediately after finishing those two books, I picked up The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken. 

So in this book, the children are affected with a virus that either kills them or gives them special abilities and they are given colours depending on how dangerous their abilities are. The government somehow convinces the parents to send their kids to “rehabilitation camps” to cure their kids. 

We follow a 16 year old Ruby, who somehow manages to escape from her camp and bands together with this group of three super cool kids. And obviously, she has some trouble adjusting with them but come on, what else can you expect? 

They’re in search of a camp set up by a kid who escaped from the government camp, and set up his own camp for the protection of other kids who managed to escape. 

And the story takes off from there. I won’t tell you anymore. Read the book and drop me a comment. Or if you’ve already read it, drop me a comment and tell me what you felt while reading this book.

Dreams of Gods & Monsters by Laini Taylor

Phew! Finally! This book took me so long to finish!

It took me a long time to actually get into this book. With the constant war counsels and my own not-reading mood really messed with my reading time, I tell you.

So in the last installment of this trilogy, Karou and Akiva unite the seraphim and chimaera to fight against a common enemy and rebuild an empire. Among other things, but that’s the gist of it.

In the beginning, Karou and Akiva wouldn’t even look at each other and I felt so sad for them, I mean, come on! How often do YOU see a love like that, huh?

I LOVED the writing. I mean, the way Laini Taylor just gives you something good during a chapter and then, the ending line comes. Oh God, everything was fine. Just fine. Until it wasn’t.

Karou and Akiva were amazing, as always. Do not even get me started on Zuzana and Mik! They were so adorable. Goals all the way! And so smart! The way Mik stole all those gavriels from Esther in his violin case! Wow!

But I just felt that the whole storyline with the Stelions was a little rushed. There was a point towards the end where I couldn’t understand what was going on, because it was just too fast, But perhaps, it was meant that way. To confuse people like me.

I absolutely loved the plot, the story-line, the plot twists, the characters, the realtionships! A must read and an incredible end to an amazing series. I loved every moment of it.

24-30 July

I know I’m a little late, but this year I would love to participate in the booktube-a-thon reading challenge. I absolutely love book tube! Whenever I watch booktubers, I feel really inspired but I’ve never really gained enough courage to start a channel of my own. And also, I’ve been stuck in a reading slump. Again! I’m hoping this readathon helps me defeat my reading slump and get in the reading habit. So I thought why not, right? You Only Live Once! Let’s get on with it!

Challenge 1- Read a book with a person on the cover.


You would ask why. Well, because I really need to finish this series!

Challenge 2- Read a hyped book.


I really want to re-read this book because I feel like I’m in a place in my life that I will be able to understand and appreciate this book better.

Challenge 3- Read a book in one day.


This is another re-read for me. I loved this book the last time I read it and I would love to read it again!

Challenge 4- Read about a character different from you.


The main characters in this book are as different from me as possible. They are either angels or chimaera.

Challenge 5- Finish a book completely outside.

So technically, reading outside is not completely feasible where I live. But I am currently staying at my grandmothers’ house, so I plan to finish this book during the duration of my stay here.

Challenge 6- Read a book you bought because of the cover.


This cover is beautiful! In fact, every edition of this book has beautiful covers! And from the reviews that I’ve heard about this book, I think this will be a good opportunity to read it.

Challenge 7- Read seven books.

I personally do not think that I will be able to complete seven books, given that I’m late and all. So my challenge is going to be finishing these five books.

This post was inspired by Shannon Paige Waters at Captivate~by~Fantasy. She has an amazing blog! Do check it out!

Do feel free to join in! Enjoy guys!

Days of Blood & Starlight by Laini Taylor

Whew! I finally finished this one! I know, I know it’s been such a long time but what can a girl do? Between being stuck in a reading slump and obsessing over Game of Thrones, I couldn’t read that much. As you guys might or might not know about me, I don’t really like a book where its entirety is spent on planning a war. So me sticking through with this book is actually, quite a big deal for me, you know?

So the last book ended with us finding out that Akiva had killed Karou’s family. This book picks up after that. Incredulously, Karou feels guilty enough to join the White Wolf as a resurrectionist, to help him with the war. She feels pain, guilt, everyone hates her, and I kinda feel bad for her.

But the things that I really loved were Zuzana’s friendship shining through, Akiva’s pain, his love being as clear as day, and finally, Karou gaining the courage to do the right thing.

Ah, Zuzana! I really love her! I mean, the limits she is willing to go to for her best friend! And Mik! Aw, they’re so cute!

But it was a slow read for me because there were so many characters, Karou’s resurrections, that it was quite hard for me to keep track of all of them and the storyline with them. But by the time I managed to know them all, the book was pretty dang interesting!

The guilt, the pain, the war, the love, the friendship, the family, the traitor, the plot, Akiva, Karou, Zuzana, Mik, Issa!

Let me know if you guys have read this and what you felt when you read it. There’s nothing that I would love more. Truly.

For those of you who haven’t, check out the Goodreads page right here–

Also, is it really normal to be that obsessed with Game of Thrones? Cause I LOVE IT! Lemme know!

Enjoy guys!

PS If you guys have any thoughts or reviews about my blog and what I write and how I present, I would love to read it. It will show me if I’m doing a good job or not.

Till next time.



Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

Hi guys! So I picked up this book just because I had heard so many raving reviews about this series! And I cannot agree more with them!

So, in the beginning, we follow this girl, Karou, who seems like a pretty normal 17 year old studying art in Prague. She has blue hair, and tattoos. A  a lot of tattoos. And then, we are introduced to another part of her life. Her life in Elsewhere. 

She knocks on a door, waiting for it to open and transport her to Brimstone’s shop, where Issa, Kishmish, Brimstone himself and Twiga, are all part human, part some other creature. And they are all part of Karou’s family. 

She  regularly goes on mysterious errands for Brimstone, collecting teeth from all parts of the world, of all kinds of creatures. She wants to know what Brimstone does with them, but he never tells her. Oh and Brimstone deals in wishes. Like money, it comes in different denominations. I mean, how cool is that?!

At the same time she feels empty inside like she’s supposed to be doing something but she doesn’t know what river stone is very secretive about what he does and the other creatures don’t give up his secrets

Then one day black handprints start appearing on mysterious door ways. Hand prints that look like they have been burned into the wood.

We get a glimpse of an Angel responsible for making some of these hand prints. His orange eyes, eyes like they have a burning fire in them, and his uncommon beauty, making him stand out. He is a seraphim.

While on an errand for Brimstone, he catches sight of Karou. He is entranced by her, by her innocence. But when he gets to know that she works for Brimstone, he wonders how could a girl like her work for a devil like him.

Weak from all the wounds she received from fighting with the seraphim, Karou gets the opportunity to poke around the shop and she enters a restricted doorway. She finds herself in another world entirely, in a kind of a fortress. But then Brimstone discovers her, and throws her out of the shop. Without her coat, her phone, keys or anything. She manages to get into her flat somehow.

Some time later, she finds a burning Kishmish at her window, holding a burnt letter. And he dies in her arms! And she doesn’t know what the letter said. And then she finds out that all the handprint marked doors, portals, have been burt, including Brimstone’s shop. She tries knocking several times but nothing happens.

And then she starts on her journey to bring her family back. Then, the seraphim, Akiva, finds her. And then they fall in love. But more than that, their souls find each other and recognise each other. And then some secrets are unfolded and knock you on your butt. 

I loved this book! I love how fast-paced this book is, the family aspect with Brimstone and others, and there is also a friendship aspect. And we’re thrust into this new world without any introductions but it’s awesome! All in all, a must read!
