I’m back again with a book list post that takes a WHOLE DAY (literally) to make but hey! No regrets, even though I hate making these, I love making them. Forgive me if this doesn’t make sense, it’s well past two am as I’m typing this and I might or might not be delirious with fatigue, but shhhh. ANYWAY. As I was working on my #YARC2019 TBR last month, I realized that although I have lists that include South and West Asian books, I still hadn’t done one with books that have East or South East Asian main characters, but FRET NOT, I’m here to remedy that today. And so far, this is the list I’ve compiled that has the most books with 70+ items.
If there’s one question I’ve been getting over and over and over again for the last two years or so is “but!!! FADWA!!! How do you manage to stay on op of blogging on top of everything else?” and let me tell you, it’s called Anxiety. Well, that and having a Virgo mother but, details. On a more serious note, a huge part of the reason behind me being so organized and on top of everything really is anxiety, I can’t really rest if it’s nagging at the back of my brain, so I HAD to find a way to visualize everything I have to do and actually…you know…do it. In this post I will share EVERYTHING I use to maximize my productivity in the hopes that some of it works for you as well.
Hey guys! My name is Prags and I have been blogging for about 3 years now, on and off. My time in the community, and western media, has taught me that there are certain preconceived notions, myths, and stereotypes surrounding people of South Asian descent and I thought it would be a good time to share the truth about some of them! I want you to keep in mind that though these are general South Asian stereotypes, I can only speak from an Indian perspective since I am an Indian and I am not versed with the lifestyle of people living in other South Asian countries, even though all of us do have many things in common. So, from here on, I shall be using the term Indian as compared to South Asian. Continue reading

I’m back again with my bimonthly Down the TBR Hole. Apparently I add way more books than I read AND delete, because my TBR is bigger than the last time I did this post AND WHY IS THIS A NEVER ENDING CYCLE? But I will keep cleaning it up one post at a time until I’m satisfied with the books that are on it.
This was created by Lia, formerly @ Lost in a Story. Continue reading

Historical Romance is a fantasy. It’s one that we as readers choose to engage in again and again for pleasure. It promises us the one thing that is promised in all genre romance: a happily ever after. However, the question that we need to ask ourselves as readers is: who is able to get their happily ever after? The answer to that question is closely connected to another: whose stories are being told in Historical Romance? Unpacking those questions requires looking critically at the books that are being published. Continue reading
February has come and gone and I honestly can barely remember anything about it. It went by in such a weird daze that all I know is how stressed I was and how little I slept haha, but hopefully March will be better?
