Not-So-Brief Hiatus


So I know I’ve been away for a while (aka 2-3 months) and that was because I was in a blogging slump. Juggling everything became a bit stressful and I wasn’t sure if I wanted to keep going…but my time away from my blog has made me realize that I love blogging (in some form or the other) and with all the good books I’ve been reading lately, I need someplace to fangirl!

BUT despite how much I love you guys and this blog.. I want to start over. To be honest, I’ve published quite a few posts on this blog, that looking back, aren’t that great quality. I want to start publishing more quality posts and reviews but I felt like it would be a lot easier to start over with a new blog instead of deleting a bunch of blog posts and re-designing this blog.

My new blog is called Addicted to YA and it would be great if you could go check it out…It’s a little more colorful than this one but still the design isn’t that unique or anything because I don’t have mad tech skills.

I just wanted to thank you guys for supporting this blog…and hopefully you’ll follow me over on my new blog?

Thanks again,



Book Review: Someone Else’s Life by Katie Dale


Goodreads Blurb:

When seventeen-year-old Rosie’s mother, Trudie, dies from Huntington’s Disease, her pain is intensified by the knowledge that she has a fifty-per-cent chance of inheriting the crippling disease herself.

Devastated, Rosie decides to trace her real mother, hitching along on her ex-boyfriend’s GAP year to follow her to Los Angeles. But all does not go to plan, and as Rosie discovers yet more of her family’s deeply-buried secrets and lies, she is left with an agonising decision of her own – one which will be the most heart-breaking and far-reaching of all…

Ten Jobs a Book Lover Would Love To Do

This is pretty cool and it would be nice if everyone could afford to do their dream jobs 🙂 Out of all the jobs listed below, I think I most want to be a writer 😀

The Book Gypsy

Because we read so much, we are exposed to a lot of different worlds which play a significant role in shaping our thoughts and ideas. That makes us wish or desire to experience all the things the protagonist is doing in those books – eating smoked salmon, travelling on a yacht, shopping at NY’s high street, holidaying at a guesthouse of wood in the snow-covered hills of Switzerland, meeting the love of your life there; and the list goes on…

This makes us book lovers, by far, the most creative people with vivid imaginations, always coming up with strange and innovative ideas. This love for books and everything related, influences our career choices as well. We’d want to be something where we can read more and more and expand our horizon of imagination. Here are 10 such jobs we are best suited for:

1. Own a bookstore-cum-cafe
