What I did this month – Books, Netflix and more!

May has already ended WHAT THE HELL. Half of 2019 has already passed by, i have officially become a senior now, Ramadan came and went by ALL IN ONE MONTH?? Honestly, time is flying by way too fast. It seems like we’re in some time travelling machine which is set on super fast speed. It will be 2020 in 6 months, guys. 2020. Aaah.

But anyway. It is what it is.

Moving on to talking about my month, it was an amazing month both in terms of reading and blogging (maybe moreso towards the last week of May). Also I know I’m late in posting my wrap-up, but I had Eid festivities going on and was really busy in that.

I pretty much neglected my blog this year around because of the constant load of studies, but once my vacations started I promised myself I would work on that and change it. So this post will be a quick summary of my month: books I read, shows I watched, my goals for the next month etc. Brace yourselves people, this will be longggg.

Wow, just realised my May was really diverse in terms of genre. I read a classic, a YA Contemporary, a fantasy and a non-fiction. *pats my back* Good work, eh?

Mrs. Dalloway: When someone says feminism and stream-of-consciousness in the same context, you can’t help but instantly say “Virginia Woolf!” This book was in my list of classics to read and finally this semester I had to read this for one of my courses. The writing is brilliant! The stream of consciousness thing is done so well, you cant stop reading honestly. The amazing part is that this book takes place over a span of one day. ONE DAY ONLY. And its amazing to see how the thoughts of each person unravel over the pages and the two people who never meet in the story are least likely to be linked are the characters that are the most similiar. It is honestly an amazing read and if you’re looking into strong female writing, look no further!

My Rating: 4/5

Words in Deep Blue: This was definitely a cute book. It features people who love reading, love stories beginning from bonding over books, setting is a bookstore and hidden love letters between books. Doesn’t that sound like a book-lovers dream???? This whole premise just made the love in the book so enticing.

However, there are other parts to it and there is sadness. Death-kind sadness. I usually don’t like sad books, but the way the story deals with it is really nice. The feelings of the characters just consume you. Which brings me to the characters, aaah love the character development. From the very start, it felt like I already knew the characters you know? The letters hidden in books for other characters basically tell you so much. Plus, one thing that I REALLY appreciated was that the side -characters did not just exist for the purpose of being diverse, or giving love advises or to add up to the MC’s lives. The side characters had stories and lives of their own. Every character in the story served a purpose.

But aah problem: The first 100 pages are really slow, nothing is happening and it sort of got monotonous for me. ALSO. It was v predictable sort of. Maybe this is just me, but i like stories which prove me wrong and i had guessed the ending of the book before i had even read half of it.

So even though i loved the setting and the characters and the over-all plot, I just feel like it wasn’t something out of the world, but it is definitely a book that every book-lover should read because WHO WOULDN’T WANT TO DATE SOMEONE WHO READS SO MUCH??

My Rating: 3.5/5

Every Heart A Doorway: OH BOY THIS WILL BE MY FAV FANTASY SERIES. I really really really hope it gets made into a movie because damn that would be so brilliant! This book is perfect in every way: plot, narrative, characters, twist, and oh don’t even get me started on the world-building. A definite 5/5 rating!

society-netflix-review

This was the first time I started watching a show without reading reviews on it first and I’m glad I did. I was really in the mood for some dystopian/thriller and this show provided me just that. The story-line was good and even though there were a few flaws in characterization and the plot, over-all it was a fairly good show.

My Rating: 8/10

 

The-Perfection-Netflix-Original-Film

This movie was umm….a ride. The narrative is superbly done, filming is amazing, acting is also umm…8/10. The setting is Shanghai, which is very rare to see in movies these days and I loved it! However, the basic message they were trying to portray didn’t come off as well and I felt like the topic over-all, could have been dealt with better.

But over-all the movie was a 7/10 mainly because of the narrative and cinematography.

Oh Boy this show was hilarious!!!! It is basically a Reality TV Series which focuses on the lives of 4 pregnant Australian women. The series ends with one of the girls crowned as a “Yum Mum” – a mum who is equal parts glitzy, glamy as well also a good mom.

I know at this point you’re probably thinking what the hell was wrong with me to watch something like this, I mean who could have this much amount of free time in their lives???? It’s unbelievable that this series even got renewed for Season 2 HAHAHA. But trust me, it provided such a laugh ohmygod. I was rolling my eyes half of the time – both with annoyance and disbelief – i mean, DID YOU KNOW THERE ARE ARMANI MILK BOTTLES FOR INFANTS???

Their world is full of Range Rovers, Versace Baby Showers, Celebrity hairdressers (who are also good husbands and fathers) and the 10-episode series serves for perfect laughter, amusement and a glimpse into the lives of Australian rich bitches.

Goodreads Monday: Strange the Dreamer!

Hey all! I’m here again, with my first weekly Monday post! (hopefully, to be continued till the end of times)

Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Lauren @ Lauren’s PageTurners in which we get a chance to choose any one book from our never-ending TBR pile and show it offff!

My book for this Monday is Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

StrangeIG

Can we all just have a moment of silence to appreciate this exquisite cover?!

And the plot of the story is just as dreamy as the cover; it questions your imagination in all ways possible.

Goodreads Synopsis:

The dream chooses the dreamer, not the other way around—and Lazlo Strange, war orphan and junior librarian, has always feared that his dream chose poorly. Since he was five years old he’s been obsessed with the mythic lost city of Weep, but it would take someone bolder than he to cross half the world in search of it. Then a stunning opportunity presents itself, in the person of a hero called the Godslayer and a band of legendary warriors, and he has to seize his chance or lose his dream forever.

What happened in Weep two hundred years ago to cut it off from the rest of the world? What exactly did the Godslayer slay that went by the name of god? And what is the mysterious problem he now seeks help in solving?

The answers await in Weep, but so do more mysteries—including the blue-skinned goddess who appears in Lazlo’s dreams. How did he dream her before he knew she existed? And if all the gods are dead, why does she seem so real?

 

Isn’t the synopsis interesting? But honestly, if the cover wasn’t this good, this book probably wouldn’t have been in my TBR. The synopsis attracts me even more because of this blue and gold beauty!! I honestly just feel like touching this thing ❤ Laini Taylor, you sure have got a thing for artsy stuff! Even her Smoke and Bone trilogy had a pretty cool, crafty cover!

So what do you guys think about it? What have you all got up your sleeves this Monday? Let me know in the comments below!

-Happy Reading! xx

Book Review: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Title: Red Queen
Author: Victoria Aveyard
Published date: 10th February '2015
Genre: fiction, fantasy, YA
My rating: 3/5

Honestly, I don't even know how to rate this book. Can we do it in parts? Like rating certain parts and not the book as a whole? No? Oh well, okay I will stick with the boring traditional version of rating entire books. (There are spoilers ahead because this is more like a rant, so if you haven't read this book, this might not be for you.)

Plot:

The plot was certainly very good. It was amazing, I loved the storyline.

This is a world divided by blood – red or silver. The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers.

I especially liked the abilities that the Silvers possessed:

Telky – Silvers who possess telekinesis, an ability that allows them to influence a physical object without physical interaction.

Strong-Arm – who possess superhuman strength

Whisper – who can read and control the minds of anyone

Magnetron – who can manipulate metal.

Shadows – They can become invisible by manipulating the light around themselves.

There are also many others, but these are a few that I remember right now.

However, I feel like the execution wasn't done well enough. The characters and her writing style lacked a lot of things. I, for one thing, didn't become a fan of her style because I felt like it was very repetitive. She emphasized on trivial things MUCH more than was needed.

Moreover, there was a little bit of Game of Thrones, The Selection and Divergent hidden beneath the lines. And I really don't like reading revised storylines. For me, the first part in a series makes it or breaks it!

GOT: The different houses (House Samos, House Provos, House Gliacon) was all too similiar to Houses in GOT (House Arryn, Greyjoy, Frey or Tully)

The Selection: Mare was chosen from all the poor commoners and pushed right into royalty and then got stuck between two boys.

Divergent: she was different from everyone, a mixture of both Red and Silver. (You see Tris, right there?)

Now let's see the characters.

Characters:

When I was reading The Selection, I thought that no one can be more annoying than America Singer. I was soooo wrong! Ladies and Gentleman, I present to you Mare Barrow. The Queen of all the annoying characters who ever existed in the history of annoying characters.
First she thought life sucks. She hated how she was always hungry and miserable, and how the silvers were living a perfectly luxurious life. Now when she has powers, she wished her problems would go back to just being about hunger.

(SPOILER ALERT!!!!!)

 

From the start, she is very judgmental about everything. One minute, she hates the silvers. She also dislikes Cal and repeatedly tells herself how much he's a monster and like the rest of them, but then at the same time "she finds the warmth in him" that makes no sense. I understand that he saved her, so naturally she may have a soft spot for him but that doesn't mean he LOVES her. He could be a good friend, a caring friend, someone who wants to look after her because he feels guilty. (He was the one to bring her into the palace and then she suffered for it.) A person can never feel warmth from a person even if there is a tiny bit of hate there. If that wasn't enough, she went forward and kissed him!! Over here, it's not just hatred of a person. She hates his existence, his being, they WAY he is BORN. She is telling herself how wrong he is, and at the same time she is kissing him! (Did I mention how she is bethroted to Cal's younger brother? Oh yes, can you see the love triangle emerging that I hate so much?!) And after the deed is done, it's not necessary to emphasize this point SO MUCH.

Even though it makes my skin crawl, I reach out to touch Cal’s shoulder. He kissed me once. He might still listen when I speak.

The others stare at me with a strange mix of emotions, their eyes wide— and afraid. Cal, the boy I kissed, the soldier, the brute, can’t hold my gaze at all.

 

Her feelings for Cal were so confusing. I honestly just wanted to slap her through the book.

 

img_0129

 

(Umm, what?! She was bethroted to Maven the day she came into the palace, so she knew she never stood a chance with Cal. Where does "wanting everything he could give me" comes from??? Her feelings were never this intense.) She never thought about marrying him and she never had romantic thoughts about him either because in the entire book she was convincing herself that he is just like the rest of them. Then why is she acting as if he was her ex-boyfriend? Oh oh oh, she was also jealous of the thought of Evangeline with Cal but I'll cut her some slack there, because Evangeline was a major bitch.

 

Another thing. Victoria Aveyard made sure anyone who read this book would end up hating the word "warmth". Atleast I did. Every time Mare could feel the warmth of Cal's eyes on her, or the warmth of Maven's arms around her or Shade's warmth enveloping her, I was like:

img_0151

It was so irritating to see her being drawn to people she hated. I get the concept of opposites attracting, but over here, she literally loathed them. And yet, she could feel herself enjoying the attention from both of them. (Have I already mentioned that? Oh God, am I being repetitive tooo?! Ugh too much of Red Queen!)

You all must be wondering how the hell does this book STILL gets a 3-star rating?

Well, that's because:

  1. The cover is amazing! When this book first came out in 2015, I bought it without even reading the synopsis. (I've never understood the phrase "never judge a book by its cover" better.)
  2. I do like the story-line, you know. The whole abilities thing that I've explained above. That's pretty cool shit. (I would LOVE to be a Whisper)
  3. Maven's betrayal! Aaaah, that was pretty awesome. Even though, I read spoilers and knew that the betrayal was coming, the execution of that scene (quite literally too, haha) was done brilliantly!
  4. At the end, this book does leaves me wanting for more. I really want to know what happens to Cal and Mare now.

On a side note, is it weird that I was imagining Cersei as Queen Elara and Joffrey as Prince Maven? :p (I think that's because of the betrayal though)

 

So there it is guys! *Rant over*

What do you guys think about the book? Feel free to agree or disagree with me. It is a book review, hence not everyone will end up having the same opinion about it. Let me know in the comments below!

-Happy Reading! xx

Bookish Thought #1: Which Series to Read?

Okay so it will be surprising to know that I haven’t read that many series in my life. The last time I read a series was Never Never by Colleen Hoover, and I have to admit it SUCKED BIG TIME. Ugh. I wasted my very precious time on those two books so couldn’t get myself to even start the third part. That, along with the disappointment of fantasy stories in general never motivated me to pick up a series to read. I like the idea of reading stand-alones much better (they also finish up pretty fast)

However, I’ve now decided to give some series a read. My reasons for this decision are many:

  • There are so many hilarious memes and fanart on series and I fail to understand all of them and I feel pretty useless, you feel me? (You probably don’t because you may have read ACOTAR or The Raven series pfft)
  • Series have some pretty awesome bookmarks! Have you seen GOT bookmarks? They’re some of the coolest ones to own! Not to mention the ACOTAR bookmarks too!

Image result for game of thrones bookmarks  Image result for ACOTAR bookmarks

I SERIOUSLY NEED THESE IN MY LIFE!

  • I seriously want to know why the whole goddamn book world is going crazy over Sarah J Mass or are so constantly annoyed at Feyre! (If we’re bashing her, I want to join in on that too!)
  • Also, I’ve started reading Red Queen and I’m liking it so far! I can’t wait to get my hands on the Glass Sword too! (If not for the story, I would definitely buy it for the amazing cover) Oh and the bookmarks, again!
  • Tumblr and Pinterest have some really hilarious fan-art and memes too! Like I don’t even know what they talk about most of the times since I haven’t read the books but they’re just plain hilarious. (I read Red Queen ones and they got me exploding into laughter.)

So! I’ve decided to read dystopian/fantasy series in September/October (however well I could manage)

Now let’s see what I have:

  1. A Court of Thorns and Roses Trilogy (Goodreads rating: 4.29) 

“Feyre’s survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill – the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price …

Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre’s presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.”  

Honestly, the synopsis doesn’t even appeal to me that much but people’s reviews totally say otherwise. Also, pages & paperbacks review here is downright amusing! And probably forcing me to give this a try.

2.The Lunar chronicles (Goodreads Avg Rating: 4.30)

Read the synopsis here

What really attracts me here is that each of the 4 books in the series is actually a modern re-telling of the fairy tales so I automatically want to read and see if Marissa Meyer did these books some justice.    IMG-0105

Cinder (Cinderella, duh)

Scarlett (Red Riding Hood)

Cress (Rapunzel)

Winter (Snow White)

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. The Raven Cycle (Goodreads Avg Rating: 4.24)

ggghhh   hjh   jk

Read the synopsis of all books here. Plus these books have really amazing covers, no?

 

  1. The Uglies Trilogy (Goodreads Avg Rating: 3.86)

I was attracted to these series by its name, “Uglies” and it’s synopsis is just as intriguing!

“Tally is about to turn sixteen, and she can’t wait. In just a few weeks she’ll have the operation that will turn her from a repellent ugly into a stunning pretty. And as a pretty, she’ll be catapulted into a high-tech paradise where her only job is to have fun.

But Tally’s new friend Shay isn’t sure she wants to become a pretty. When Shay runs away, Tally learns about a whole new side of the pretty world– and it isn’t very pretty. The authorities offer Tally a choice: find her friend and turn her in, or never turn pretty at all. Tally’s choice will change her world forever… “

I feel like everyone should read this because it highlights the exact same society in which we live in; where appearances, glamour and beauty means more than the person’s character. From all the reviews that I’ve read, it is a very genuine, eye-opening story. I was all up for reading this, but then again, indecisiveness gets the better of me. *sighs*

 

  1. Starters/Enders (Goodreads ratings: 3.91)

213a2c852d0579eb6b6b11ded6540360

HER WORLD IS CHANGED FOREVER

“Callie lost her parents when the Spore Wars wiped out everyone between the ages of twenty and sixty. She and her little brother, Tyler, go on the run, living as squatters with their friend Michael and fighting off renegades who would kill them for a cookie. Callie’s only hope is Prime Destinations, a disturbing place in Beverly Hills run by a mysterious figure known as the Old Man.

He hires teens to rent their bodies to Enders—seniors who want to be young again. Callie, desperate for the money that will keep her, Tyler, and Michael alive, agrees to be a donor. But the neurochip they place in Callie’s head malfunctions and she wakes up in the life of her renter, living in her mansion, driving her cars, and going out with a senator’s grandson. It feels almost like a fairy tale, until Callie discovers that her renter intends to do more than party—and that Prime Destinations’ plans are more evil than Callie could ever have imagined. . . .”

So here you guys have to help me out! Help me make the eternal decision of choosing which one?! Have you read any of these? If yes, tell me which one? If not, will you plan to read it with me?

I will be glad to know your answers. Leave them in the comments below! xx

Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Title: Caraval
Author: Stephanie Garber
Published Date: 31st January ‘2017
My Rating: 4/5

This was the first fantasy novel I have probably read in a long long time and I’m satisfied to say it was a good read.  The cover of the book exactly reflects the story: dazzling, glittery and fickle. I honestly love good cover novels and this is so far my favourite cover. 

Synopsis: Scarlett Dragna has never left the tiny island where she and her sister, Tella, live with their powerful, and cruel, father. Now Scarlett’s father has arranged a marriage for her, and Scarlett thinks her dreams of seeing Caraval—the faraway, once-a-year performance where the audience participates in the show—are over.

But this year, Scarlett’s long-dreamt-of invitation finally arrives. With the help of a mysterious sailor, Tella whisks Scarlett away to the show. Only, as soon as they arrive, Tella is kidnapped by Caraval’s mastermind organizer, Legend. It turns out that this season’s Caraval revolves around Tella, and whoever finds her first is the winner.

Scarlett has been told that everything that happens during Caraval is only an elaborate performance. Nevertheless she becomes enmeshed in a game of love, heartbreak, and magic. And whether Caraval is real or not, Scarlett must find Tella before the five nights of the game are over or a dangerous domino effect of consequences will be set off, and her beloved sister will disappear forever.

This is one of those books which keeps you hooked throughout and keeps you guessing about what will happen next. It is such a mysterious magical book! Even at the end, when you think everything’s figured out, you’re proved wrong once again. I love how it actually makes you believe in the power of magic and gets you thinking “what would I do if I was there?” It’s a perfect read to escape the monotony of your daily life (atleast for me it was.)One of the things I liked was how the author described emotions as colours. Being in a magical world, everything was possible. Emotions as colours, style-changing gowns (I would love to have that), handsome  arrogant boys (uhh, Julian!), seeing the world from a dead person’s perspective and literally everything that could happen only in your imagination. It kind of reminded me a lot of Alice in wonderland (there was a pocket-watch, a curious girl falling into pit-holes and darkness and elaborate purple coats and cloaks. Now that I realise, The Legend could be the Queen of Hearts!!!) 

As for the characters, the protagonist (Scarlett) – Although I could see myself relate to her at some places and understand her feelings, I felt she was an overall paranoid, scared and a meek character, who was always confused and doubting her abilities. Her sister, Donatella, was a much clever, hungry-for-adventure-and-risks sorta girl and someone I could relate to but sadly, this book wasn’t from her POV.  Julian was a manipulative liar and I can’t really say who he was without giving away spoilers. However, the chemistry between Scarlett and Julian was too cute!

One of the reasons this book doesn’t get a 5-star is because it gets unreasonable at a few places. (I wish I could say how but ugh, spoilers). It also gets confusing towards the end, and not everything is explained clearly to the readers. Secondly, the abrupt ending puts me off a bit (another reason for it not being a 5-star). I mean if the author wanted to give the book a cliff-hanger, it should have been a good one. It felt like it ended so abruptly and quickly, I almost thought I had misplaced the last page or something lol 

Nonetheless, I still liked this book and being a fan of realism, I could argue that I hated it but the author made even the unrealistic things seem so natural it is imposssible to say otherwise. It’s like she wrote this book in the hopes that it would one day be made into a movie. It would be a very well-made movie too! (I actually wish it does). I’m also so happy that the story doesn’t end here and there will be a sequel coming out sooon!! 

Caraval has restored my faith in fantasy novels and I genuinely wished at the end of the book (before the epilogue) that there be a sequel of this book. And yayyy, there is! 

So for all the fantasy readers out there, I recommend you do check this book out! And for those who have already this, what do you guys think about it?

Happy Reading! x

Pride and Prejudice

“Pride and Prejudice is the classic tale of the irrepressible Elizabeth Bennet—Jane Austen’s most fully realized heroine and a character not unlike her creator in that she possesses a dry wit, enjoys spotting a fool, and refuses to be taken lightly.  The story begins as the people of rural Meryton scurry to marry their daughters off to Charles Bingley, a dashing and eligible bachelor who has taken an estate near the Bennets.  At the village’s welcoming ball, Elizabeth meets up with a  formidable adversary:  Bingley’s closest friend, the cold, prideful, extremely wealthy Fitzwilliam Darcy, who piques her to new heights of antagonism.  When Darcy arrogantly urges Bingley to give up his burgeoning courtship of Elizabeth’s sister, misunderstanding threatens to bury all he loves in turmoil and regret.  A cautionary tale about the evils of hasty judgment, Pride and Prejudice is arguably one of the most satisfying love stories ever written. “

As the synopsis goes, it is a satisfying love story between the protagonist, Elizabeth Bennet, and the very handsome but arrogant Mr.Darcy. However, the story is so much more than that. It was written in the 18th century, when women were deemed as inferior to men, when being a woman was all about being pretty and married, when money, status and fortunes mattered a great deal. It is absolutely amazing how at that time, Austen managed to write this book, clearly outlining the different circumstances women went through. It also highlights the many stereotypes and prejudices of the society. In the centre of all this is our main character Elizabeth who is totally the opposite: Obstinate, opinionated, and headstrong.

There are few people whom I really love and sill fewer of whom I think well. The more I see of the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it, and everyday confirms my basis of the inconsistency of all human characters.

 

I’m in love with most of the characters. The ones i dislike, i dislike only because they are so well-developed, their stupidity and annoyance seems so real, it is impossible to not hate them. LOL. Mr.Bennet (Eliza’s father) has a satirical humor that engages you in the story as soon as it starts. It is a shame to see him being married to a woman so unlike him, however, the way he deals with her is very impressive. Like the book starts with Mrs. Bennet fretting over the possibility of her daughters’ marriage and Mr. bennet’s cynical, but calm reaction to it.

Mrs. Bennet: Mr.Bennet, you take delight in vexing me! You have no compassion on my poor nerves.” Mr.Bennet: You mistake me, my dear. I have a high respect for your nerves. They are my old friends. I have heard you mention them with consideration these twenty years atleast.

Austen brings such humour and wit into every dialogue, its really impressive. Conversations between Mr.Darcy and Elizabeth are so intriguing. There is such a dignified manner with which these two converse, even when complimenting and flirting with each other. It evidently makes one smile. Even when the characters are arguing or insulting, it is done with such skillful use of words that it doesn’t seem insulting at all. The english used is clearly very different from what we use now, and usually the language used in classics is a bit difficult understated. However, the author uses clear phrases making it very easy to understand. Infact, I actually liked the English used. It is so nice reading about the old times, how they used to converse and everything. Some of the dialogues and quotes are worth noting. Like:

“A lady’s imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony in a moment.”  -Mr.Darcy 

(Austen sure knew that the nature of female species wouldn’t change with time.)

Jane Austen’s works are a true work of literature. From the plot and characters to dialogues and their delivery has been done beautifully. Needless to say, it has become my favourite classic.

Im looking forward to reading more of Jane Austen’s works! Recommend me what to read next.

Until then, Happy Reading!!
