Book Review: When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

Book Review: When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

I could literally kick myself for not reading this book a long time ago. I mean what was I thinking? Oh, yeah that fluffier contemporaries are generally not my thing. Well I failed to factor in diverse fluff. Between this book and the recent release, American Panda, I am LOVING the diverse contemporaries I’ve read lately. I can only hope the trend continues.

I mean, like a lot of us, I grew up obsessively rereading the books and eventually rewatching the movies. I thought I knew everything. But this book actually gives an […]

Anyway, happy Valentine’s Day lovelies, let’s answer some questions! 1. favorite couple ever? you want their relationship!

Top Ten Tuesday: OTPs From the Last Year

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl This week we’re talking about our OTPs from the last year alexia’s picks 1. Eva & Grace from How to Make a Wish. Eeeeep! I am so obsessed with these two it’s not even funny. They made it impossible to think of lighthouses and peanut butter without thinking about them too. Establishing chemistry in a book can be difficult, but Blake did an amazing job making me fall in love […]

Alexia’s Recent DNFs

Hi guys, I’m back with a new round of DNFs. It’s only the beginning of February and I’ve already DNFed 7 books. I did have a great start to the year reading-wise, so I’ll take it. All of these books are eARCs, and some of them are really old eARCs. I’ve actually been really enjoying the books I’ve been reading that I already own, so YAY! This edition of Did Not Finish could also be titled Authors I’m Forced to […]
