April 2021 Wrap Up | Top Posts + Other Blogs to Check Out!

April was an extremely slow reading month, but that’s because I got caught up in Ramadan and ultimately decided to drop my reading for the holy month and focus on reconnecting with my faith and spirituality.

March 2021 Wrap Up | Top Posts + Other Blogs to Check Out!

Phew March saw the clash of booktokers vs…well everyone else, book bloggers being dragged in the mud (for the millionth time), some intern leaked the Shadow&Bone trailer thus forcing Netflix to drop it earlier than intended (whoever you are I love you). In lighter matters, I gifted a total stranger one of their wishlist booksContinue reading “March 2021 Wrap Up | Top Posts + Other Blogs to Check Out!”

February 2021 Wrap Up | Top Posts + Other Blogs to Check Out!

February was a month with a lot of changes!

HavingContinue reading “February 2021 Wrap Up | Top Posts + Other Blogs to Check Out!”

Music for Books : Starr Carter (The Hate U Give)

“Ahem ahem “Mic check”, right thank you sis for bringing me up. The world needs more light and peace, and dare I say less Bieber and more Kendrick.

Like I said: “Sometimes youContinue reading “Music for Books : Starr Carter (The Hate U Give)”

November 2020 Wrap Up | My Top 5 Posts

November was crazy to say the least. I got nominated for 3 blogger awards and my mind is absolutely reeling, splurged on crazy book haul on Black Friday, and had my heart wrecked by Addie LaRue. Also I joined BookTok (don’t judge okay I’m just trying it out 🙂 ) In between interviews and emailsContinue reading “November 2020 Wrap Up | My Top 5 Posts”

Music for Books : Henry Strauss (The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue)

“Quite an introduction Jawahir, you made me sound too big for my own good. Yup that’s me Henry: avid bookseller, lost and reluctant adult, and not a storyteller as many would believe” “I like collecting stories and finding the storyteller within others more. Everyone talks about the people who create but never those who collect.Continue reading “Music for Books : Henry Strauss (The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue)”

Music for Books : Cardan (The Cruel Prince)

“My pretty Jude apparently never introduced me to the works of Joji or the Killers. I think I’ll enchant them to come over for my next revelry, I’m sick of that dull-witted fiddle.

August 2020 Wrap Up | My Top 5 Posts

I’m about a week late than other bloggers but I’ve been going back and forth on how to write this wrap up post; should I provide a summary? Highlights? Showcase by TBR and talk books? Random rants and discussions? Wasn’t sure which path to go with and I was convinced that I did not wantContinue reading “August 2020 Wrap Up | My Top 5 Posts”

Music for Books : Persephone (Lore Olympus)

Oh Hello everyone, My name is Persephone (but you knew that already…ugh I’m not good at this)  Okay okay, Hi everyone so I’m Persephone Goddess of Spring (and allegedly the Queen of the Underworld?), and although music kind of reminds me of a really bad situation with someone I’ve been with…I won’t allow it anymore.Continue reading “Music for Books : Persephone (Lore Olympus)”
