Hello sunshines! 🔆
I have finally been actually tagged — it’s a miracle! Thank you to Ann @ Ann’s Reading Corner for thinking of me for this; I very much appreciate it! (:
The OMG THIS SONG Book Tag was created by Katie @ Katesbookdate, so feel free to check out her original video for details about the tag! Let’s get started!
A SONG YOU MUST LISTEN TO EVERY TIME IT COMES ON, NO MATTER HOW OLD OR HOW MANY TIMES YOU’VE LISTENED TO IT / A BOOK YOU’LL NEVER GET SICK OF
📚 LOOKING FOR ALASKA by John Green — my all time favorite book hands down. If you don’t enjoy this novel then
I feel extremely sad for you I completely support your opinion! 😄
🎶 DIVE by Ed Sheeran — anything Ed Sheeran I will never get tired of because he is SO AMAZING and he MAKES ME WANT TO CRY TEARS OF HAPPINESS AND SADNESS AT THE SAME TIME!!
A SONG THAT REMINDS YOU OF THE CRINGEST TIME OF YOUR LIFE / A BOOK THAT ALSO REMINDS YOU OF THIS TIME (OR JUST SOMETHING YOU WOULDN’T LIKE AS MUCH IF YOU PICKED IT UP FOR THE FIRST TIME NOW)
📚 THE MAZE RUNNER SERIES by James Dashner — it was an okay series and I didn’t really enjoy any of the other novels after the first one. I forced myself to finish the series lol.
🎶 SKYSCRAPER by Demi Lovato — this moment in life wasn’t necessarily cringy, but it was a time that I wish I never spent so much dreading over. Don’t get me wrong, I love Demi, but that song put me in my feels for more than I would have liked.

Hello sunshines! 🔆 Which Cover Wednesday is a post hosted by Sumaya @suereadingcorner. For this post, you choose two different covers of the same book — the books can have different publishers, different formats, etc. Then you decide which one you think is more appealing. I don’t think I’ve mentioned this before, but if you guys ever have theme recommendations or recs in general for WCW, please feel free to comment them!😀 Let’s get onto the debate! ⚔
AWAKE BY NATASHA PRESTON
Okay this one is actually a little tricky. I own the first cover and it’s actually not that bad for how simplistic it is. However I really love the quality of the second cover…Hmmm…I think I’ll have to go with the SECOND COVER. I don’t know what it is but I really enjoy it!

Hello sunshines! 🔆 It is officially Friday!! I hope everyone had a worthwhile week and if not, here’s your chance to make up for such a boring week with the weekend!! Friday Finds is a meme hosted by @adailyrhythm. It is a chance for you to showcase the books you’ve ‘found’ and added to your TBR list! They do not have to be books you purchased and they could’ve been found anywhere — bookstores, online, library, etc. I don’t know how many Finds I’ll actually be sharing today just because this week has been pretty crazy and hence, I haven’t had much time to venture through GR to discover new Finds. But anyways, here’s what I HAVE found since my last Friday Finds (:
Dimple Shah has it all figured out. With graduation behind her, she’s more than ready for a break from her family, from Mamma’s inexplicable obsession with her finding the “Ideal Indian Husband.” Ugh. Dimple knows they must respect her principles on some level, though. If they truly believed she needed a husband right now, they wouldn’t have paid for her to attend a summer program for aspiring web developers…right?
Amanda Hardy is the new girl in school in Lambertville, Tennessee. Like any other girl, all she wants is to make friends and fit in. But Amanda is keeping a secret. There’s a reason why she transferred schools for her senior year, and why she’s determined not to get too close to anyone. And then she meets Grant Everett. Grant is unlike anyone she’s ever met—open, honest, kind—and Amanda can’t help but start to let him into her life. As they spend more time together, she finds herself yearning to share with Grant everything about herself…including her past. But she’s terrified that once she tells Grant the truth, he won’t be able to see past it…

Hello sunshines! 🔆 Two days back to back? I’m on a roll!! Today’s tag is called ON MY SHELF and it was created by Iain Broome over on Booktube, so be sure to check out the original video if you are interested! This tag looked pretty fun so let’s get started!
💬 ABOUT THE TAG:
EVERY BOOK ON YOUR SHELF HAS A STORY. The story can be how you came to own that book, how you found it for the first time, or how it made you feel while reading it.
To pick which novels to talk about, you can use a random number generator OR simply close your eyes and pick one! For this post, I am using RANDOM.ORG to pick which book number! You can do as many rounds as you like, but for today I’ll be completing FIVE rounds!! (:
THE DINNER BY HERMAN KOCH: This was a book sent to me for review via Blogging for Books and I ended up not enjoying it at all. I thought it had an interesting concept so I was generally excited to read it, but turns out it was really slow and dry and I couldn’t get into it, lol.
