Word Wonders’ TBR Expansion: Books with East and South East Asian Main Characters

East and SE Asian.png

Hello friends!

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.

Down the TBR Hole #3

Down the TBR Hole

Hello friends!

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.

5 Star Predictions: Books on my #YARC2019 TBR

YARC2019 TBR

Hello friends!

Earlier this month, I wrote a post signing up to the Year of the Asian Reading Challenge which served as both TBR and tracking post. So I thought that it would be a good idea for this month’s 5 star predictions post to pick 8 books out of my #YARC2019 TBR that I think are strong candidates to get a full five stars from me. From the books I picked on my last post, I only read two, and neither was a five stars read *sighs*. I gave Internment 4 stars and Daisy Jones and the Six 3 stars.

Cover Reveal – GRAHAM’S DELICACIES by Em Ali + EXCERPT !!!

New Design Announcement

Hello friends!

I’m so beyond the moon excited about today’s post, because I have the honor to introduce the world to the cover of Em Ali’s second book, GRAHAM’S DELICACIES, which is a collection of three short stories. If I had to describe the author’s works in four words, it’s: QUEER AF, SOFT AF (Yes, af if one word, don’t talk to me). So believe me, you really don’t want to miss out on this cover reveal nor the book itself! This post will include the cover, the jacket, which are both STUNNING, as well as the kind of representation the book includes and trigger warnings.

I’m going to stop teasing y’all, so without further ADO, here’s the cover: Continue reading

My best friend picks my TBR

Best friend.png

Hello friends!

You know what my favourite thing about this community is? All the people I got to meet and friendships I got to make. I’ve met some of my bestest friends through my blog, and Laura @ Green Tea and Paperbacks comes on top. She’s the most genuine, caring and loyal friend anyone could ask for and just all around a ray of sunshine so it’s safe to say that I am blessed. And what do bibliophile best friends do? They spend half the time they talk yelling at each other to read the other’s favourite book. This isn’t a joke. Laura and I spend a ridiculous amount of time harassing each other about this.

TAG #44: Characters of the Year

Characters of the year.png

Hello friends!

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve sat down and done a tag on here so that’s what we’re gonna do today. Especially since this Characters of Year book tag is one I’ve been eyeing since the end of last year but I missed my opportunity to do it then but I sure as hell won’t miss it again!! It’s basically just a chance for me to yell about all the characters I loved in 2018. And no I wasn’t tagged for this, and I can’t remember where I saw it (it’s been done by so many people, help) but if you know who originally made it, let me know so I can tag them. Continue reading

Down the TBR Hole #2

Down the TBR Hole

Hello friends!

I’m back with a new edition of Down the TBR Hole. Apparently I add way more book than I read AND delete, and I somewhat pride myself in always cleaning up my TBR…but apparently not enough, since it’s longer now than it was at the start of 2018. Someone help me. PLEASE.

Word Wonders’ Blogging and Reading Round-up – 2018

2018 Round up

Hello friends!

I’m honestly so proud of myself for getting these yearly wrap-up posts on time for the first time since I started blogging! I was determined to not take a hiatus even with exams around and I HAVE SUCCEEDED, some posts take me multiple days to write but at least I didn’t neglect my blog completely AND stayed on schedule. Like the title picture says I had an amazing reading year, I discovered audiobooks, read more than I have ever before and added some new all time favourites to my forever growing list. But my blogging SUFFERED, but eh, I decided to stop being hard on myself for that and just try to do better moving forward. Continue reading
