Blurb: 

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?

Rishi Patel is a hopeless romantic. So when his parents tell him that his future wife will be attending the same summer program as him—wherein he’ll have to woo her—he’s totally on board. Because as silly as it sounds to most people in his life, Rishi wants to be arranged, believes in the power of tradition, stability, and being a part of something much bigger than himself.

The Shahs and Patels didn’t mean to start turning the wheels on this “suggested arrangement” so early in their children’s lives, but when they noticed them both gravitate toward the same summer program, they figured, Why not?

Dimple and Rishi may think they have each other figured out. But when opposites clash, love works hard to prove itself in the most unexpected ways.

Hi all, OMG this is the cutest book in 2017!! I absolutely loved it! Dimple was so cute, Rishi was so cute, their relationship was. So. Cute. I see why it made the New York Times Bestseller’s list! So, without further ado, let’s get into the review~

Blurb:

She has no allies. No throne. All she has is what she’s always had: herself.

After failing to secure the Wallachian throne, Lada Dracul is out to punish anyone who dares to cross her blood-strewn path. Filled with a white-hot rage, she storms the countryside with her men, accompanied by her childhood friend Bogdan, terrorizing the land. But brute force isn’t getting Lada what she wants. And thinking of Mehmed brings little comfort to her thorny heart. There’s no time to wonder whether he still thinks about her, even loves her. She left him before he could leave her.

What Lada needs is her younger brother Radu’s subtlety and skill. But Mehmed has sent him to Constantinople—and it’s no diplomatic mission. Mehmed wants control of the city, and Radu has earned an unwanted place as a double-crossing spy behind enemy lines. Radu longs for his sister’s fierce confidence—but for the first time in his life, he rejects her unexpected plea for help. Torn between loyalties to faith, to the Ottomans, and to Mehmed, he knows he owes Lada nothing. If she dies, he could never forgive himself—but if he fails in Constantinople, will Mehmed ever forgive him?

As nations fall around them, the Dracul siblings must decide: what will they sacrifice to fulfill their destinies? Empires will topple, thrones will be won…and souls will be lost.

Hi all, today I’m bringing you the sequel of Now I Rise, my favorite read from 2016! This also happened to be my most anticipated sequel of 2017 too! So, let’s get into the review! Continue reading “Book Review: Now I Rise by Kiersten White”

Original Poem: The Myth

hapiness peom

I often feel like happiness doesn’t exist; at least not in a happily ever after sense. In media they often portray an image that one must struggle to find happiness. Then, once you find it you’re happy forever.

I think that “happiness” is a marketing strategy they do to get you to look a certain way, buy a certain thing, but it only lasts so long. I usually wonder if I’ll ever be happy and if life is worth it, but in the end I decide to wait one more day. Hope you enjoyed it!

Blurb:

   Jason Zhou survives in a divided society where the elite use their wealth to buy longer lives. The rich wear special suits that protect them from the pollution and viruses that plague the city, while those without suffer illness and early deaths. Frustrated by his city’s corruption and still grieving the loss of his mother, who died as a result of it, Zhou is determined to change things, no matter the cost.

With the help of his friends, Zhou infiltrates the lives of the wealthy in hopes of destroying the international Jin Corporation from within. Jin Corp not only manufactures the special suits the rich rely on, but they may also be manufacturing the pollution that makes them necessary.

Yet the deeper Zhou delves into this new world of excess and wealth, the more muddled his plans become. And against his better judgment, Zhou finds himself falling for Daiyu, the daughter of Jin Corp’s CEO. Can Zhou save his city without compromising who he is or destroying his own heart?

Hi all, so today I’m bringing you a book review! Scifi isn’t a genre I read very often, but Want is the first YA book set in Taipei, so I had to read it! Plus a lot of people were creating aesthetics for it on Twitter, and I was intrigued. I’m also obsessed with the cover, *fangirl sigh* if only Zhou existed in real life. I think the world needs a Zhou tbh. But anyway, let’s jump into the review! Continue reading “Book Review: Want by Cindy Pon”
