February releases of 2020 I’m excited for, and so should you

Hi everyone! I know that it’s what..7th of February so it’s way too late for this list but I still wanted to write up a list of February releases I’m excited about, which can also double as a February TBR list. To find new releases, I use Edelweiss, Netgalley and Goodreads, but I didn’t have to search this time around as I already had my list ready because of some awesome publishers

The Ten Most Recent Additions to My Bookshelf | Top Ten Tuesday

Hi everyone! I’m back with another Top Ten Tuesday post and this week’s prompt is to list the The Ten Most Recent Additions to My Bookshelf.

Top Ten Tuesday: Most Anticipated Releases of the Second Half of 2019
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

I love doing these type of posts. I’ve never written blog posts about book hauls, mostly photographed them and posted them on IG. Today I’m listing some of the latest additions to my shelf, most of these books I’ve listed below are gifted or received for review.

I loved the last Sophie Hannah book I read so I’m eager to start Perfect Little Children

Anticipated 2020 book releases on my list | a post after 27365535 years

Hi everyone! It does feel more than a million years since I last posted on here. I’ve been writing blog post ideas but never could I get my fingers to type up one. Will I do better at posting in 2020? Who knows..but I’ll try my hardest. While I was away from blogging, I was posting on Instagram so follow me, if you’re there!

I had a list of 2020 releases written up but I lost it, so I had to compile another one and uhh..this is not a Top Ten list as that is way too much pressure for me.. SO, here are some book releases I’m eagerly awaiting and this is only Part I!

Without any further ado, here are some Book Releases I’m Anticipating in 2020..

Book Releases I'm anticipating in 2020

A Heart so Fierce and Broken (Cursebreakers #2) by Brigid Kemmerer

Tweet Cute by Emma Lord

A fresh, irresistible rom-com from debut author Emma Lord about the chances we take, the paths life can lead us on, and how love can be found in the opposite place you expected. I’ve heard a lot of chatter about this YA romance on Twitter(irony) and I’ve got an eARC too!

Yes No Maybe So by Becky Albertalli, Aisha Saeed

Buy: Book Depository | Wordery

New York Times bestselling authors Becky Albertalli and Aisha Saeed have crafted a resonant, funny, and memorable story about the power of love and resistance.

WWW Wednesdays #13: Weekly Reading Update

Hi everyoneHappy Wednesday(after a long time!) and welcome to my weekly reading update post or the WWW Wednesdays. It’s been a long time since I posted my last WWW Wednesdays update and my blog posts have been pretty sporadic as well. I’m mostly active on Instagram these days and have two giveaways going on (on) my feed. Without any further ado, let me tell you what I’ve been reading this week and what I intend to read next.


WWW Wednesdays: Weekly Reading Update
WWW Wednesday is a meme formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and revived on Taking On a World of Words.

WWW Wednesdays #11: Weekly Reading Update

Currently Reading
The Vanished Bride by Bella Ellis

I’m currently eyeing The Vanished Bride, gifted by Berkley, as my next read. I’ll start it as soon as I finish writing this post and a review. The story is about Charlotte Brontë, Emily Brontë, and Anne Brontë before they became famous writers. It’s described as a “charming historical mystery” and I can’t wait to read it!

Finished Reading
The Lying Room by Nicci French

My last read was The Lying Room by author duo Nicci French and it was gifted by William Morrow. This was my first Nicci French and I had high hopes for this one but it fell flat. I was not “hooked” throughout and had problems with the characters as well. The twist was unexpected and I loved that “shock” element but overall, it was kind of underwhelming.

Reading Next
The Bone Houses by Emily Lloyd-Jones

I think I’ll pick up The Bone Houses by Emily Lloyd-Jones after I finish The Vanished Bride. I got it in my Owlcrate September rep box(Use RAMBLER10 for 10% discount) and have planned to readalong with a couple of bookstagram folks.


Anyone noticed that the choices are perfect from Spooktober? It was a coincidence, well..not entirely.

Thank you for reading! What are you currently reading or have finished reading? Have you read any of the titles I’ve listed? If not, do you want to read any of them? Let me know in the comments below!

Five Marriage of Convenience books you’ll love

Hey everyone! Today’s India’s Independence Day and on that note of freedom, I’m presenting you a list of books with one of my favourite romance tropes, Marriage of Convenience. If you’re unfamiliar with Marriage of Convenience or are baffled at why I including many readers are addicted to tropes like these, then let me explain.

Marriage of Convenience is marrying someone out of necessity; either one of them is in danger, or in need of money, or need of citizenship..anything goes. Now, does Arranged Marriage equal Marriage of Convenience? Not really, the lines are blurry between the two. Of course, this is not the ideal foundation of a happily married life but sometimes in fiction and even in real life, love develops in mysterious ways. Love ensnares you when you’re missing someone’s smile or their nagging. Without any further ado, let’s scroll down and view what books must be on your radar if you love reading about Marriage of Convenience..

Five Marriage of Convenience books you'll love

Marriage for One

Marriage for One by Ella Maise

I can’t tell you exactly what their “convenience” is but you NEED to read this book!! The hero Jack is super Grumpy Mcgrumperson but he soon develops to Mcdreamy as the book progresses. The romance is slow burning but you’ll love it, I promise. Oh, and guess what the heroine’s name is? It’s Rose.. get it? Jack and Rose..

Serpent and Dove

Serpent and Dove by Shelby Mahurin

Serpent and Dove will be out next month and you should absolutely read it!! Here the heroine Lou and the hero Reid (I even love his name) get married because they were caught in a compromising situation. I would say it’s more of an NA historical fantasy rather than YA.

The duchess deal

The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare

Big fan of Tessa Dare’s books! just thought I’d point that out.. Anyway, our hero is war vet Duke of Ashbury or Ash and he needs an heir ASAP. ok, I don’t know why I just laughed So, for the heir business, he needs well, you know..a female “worthy” of a Duke. However, it seems that most of the noble ladies are extremely vain so imagine his surprise when his bride Emma knocks on his door in a wedding dress, no less!!

The Wall of Winnipeg and Me

The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata

Mariana Zapata’s books are like chocolate to me. This book was like one of my favourite milk chocolate. The hero is broody or as I like to say Grumpy McGrumperson but there is of course, a slow burn romance that will melt you but you’ll still love it. Our heroine Vanessa is frustrated at her job and after she quits said job, she finds her boss at her freaking door offering to marry her.

The Bride Test by Helen Hoang

Technically, there was no “marriage” but there was an intent of it. Esme is brought over to the US by Khai, our hero’s mother. She wants Khai to get married and give her grand babies but unfortunately for her and Esme, Khai won’t marry anyone because he doesn’t do love. Diversity rep + unique view of immigration problems + autistic rep + single mother..I could go on and on why you should read this but here’s my full review.

Here are some other recommendations that I think you’ll love:
