7 Most Beautiful Book Covers of 2019 (Spin the Dawn Blog Tour)

Hello everyone! Hope July is treating you better than it is me. I have slipped up with my blogging schedule yet again, but I’ll definitely try to make up for that from now on. Today I have got an exciting blog post lined up – my contribution to the Spin the Dawn Blog Tour organised by Caffeine Book Tours, managed by Shealea @ Shut Up, Shealea. I could not have been more grateful to hear that I was chosen for the blog tour and would like to thank my lucky stars and Shealea for the opportunity! I have decided to talk about my favourite book covers of the year and, as is my brand, will be featuring the best from Asian books that released in 2019. I also have a small review up at the beginning before I dive into my list and I really hope you enjoy! A more elaborate review in my usual style will be up on my blog soon and I will be linking it here when I have posted it.

15 Most Anticipated Fantasy Books of 2019 (Jul-Dec)

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to 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. How it works is that each Tuesday the host assigns a topic and then posts their top ten list that fits the topic. Every blogger can create their own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well and link to the host’s. The topic for June 18th, 2019 was: Most Anticipated Releases of the Second Half of 2019. As I was on hiatus on that day, I decided to post about my anticipated releases today.

Bookish Indian Sweets Tag (Hungry Hearts Food Crawl)

I’m posting after a really long time but this is one blog post I was excited for from a very long time! Today is my stop for the Hungry Hearts Food Crawl organised by CW @ The Quiet Pond and Vicky @ Vicky Who Reads. This blog tour is unique and wonderful because #OwnVoices reviewers review a story that represents them. Today I will be sharing my thoughts on Rain by Sangu Mandanna, which features food from the state of India I was born in and belong to, Karnataka. I wanted to include some additional creative content, so the review is followed by a bookish tag that some of my book blogging friends and I came up with. Without further ado, let’s get to the heart of the post!

5 Books to Read on World Environment Day

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to 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. How it works is that each Tuesday the host assigns a topic and then posts their top ten list that fits the topic. Every blogger can create their own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well and link to the host’s. The topic for June 4th, 2019 is: Books From My Favorite Genre. For this prompt, I decided to go with SFF books that discuss climate change or dystopian futures as June 5th is World Enviornment Day. Being eco-friendly and combating climate change is something I feel deeply about, so I hope these books inspire some positive changes in your life as well.

Book Review: Love, Hate and Other Filters by Samira Ahmed | Nandini @ Unputdownable Books (post graphic image)

Book Synopsis (section header)

Maya Aziz is torn between futures: the one her parents expect for their good Indian daughter (i.e.; staying nearby in Chicago and being matched with a “suitable” Muslim boy), and the one where she goes to film school in New York City–and maybe, just maybe, kisses a guy she’s only known from afar. There’s the also the fun stuff, like laughing with her best friend Violet, making on-the-spot documentaries, sneaking away for private swimming lessons at a secret pond in the woods. But her world is shattered when a suicide bomber strikes in the American heartland; by chance, he shares Maya’s last name. What happens to the one Muslim family in town when their community is suddenly consumed with hatred and fear?

Greatest Hits of Sci-fi and Fantasy TBR (2009-2018)

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to 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. How it works is that each Tuesday the host assigns a topic and then posts their top ten list that fits the topic. Every blogger can create their own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well and link to the host’s. The topic for May 28th, 2019 is: Favourite Books Released In the Last Ten Years. It’s very difficult for me to narrow down my favourites to just one per year, so I decided to instead share my TBR of books that have been shortlisted for the Nebula awards from 2009-2018.

Author Chat with Sandhya Menon

I’m back with another interview of another author I truly admire, the one and only Sandhya Menon! When Dimple Met Rishi took the YA rom-com scene by storm when it came out and so has her next two books. Her first book was what got me into reading YA contemporary at all since I was more of a hardcore fantasy fan back in 2018. I love that desi characters are getting their own happy ending thanks to Sandhya and that desi models are so boldly featured on her beautiful covers. With that fangirl-y introduction aside, let’s jump into the Q&A part!
