Hey guys. At the beginning of the month I posted saying I was going to try and read every day in June. I actually didn’t read anything on the first day of June, which was a bad start. In my defence, my boyfriend got back from holiday that day, so I was a bit distracted. The next two weeks after that, I actually did pretty well. I managed to read a little bit each day. Then the second half of the month got really busy for me, because I went on holiday and when I got back we had family visiting, so I didn’t get much reading don’t in the last two weeks of June. So overall I failed, but I had fun trying at the start of the month.
Hey guys. This is just a quick post to say that in June I’m going to be doing the 30 Day Book Binge. I got the idea from Misty at BookRatMisty on YouTube. Here is her video about it. The idea is to read every single day in the month of June. At the end of June, I’ll do a post about how I did, and what and how much I read each day. Let me know if you’re going to join in.
When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon
Published by: Hodder Paperbacks
Release Date: 01/06/2017
Where to Find: Goodreads | Book Depository
Summary: Dimple Shah has it all figured out. With graduation behind her, she’s more than ready for a break from her family, from Mamma’s inexplicable obsession with her finding the “Ideal Indian Husband.” Ugh. Dimple knows they must respect her principles on some level, though. If they truly believed she needed a husband right now, they wouldn’t have paid for her to attend a summer program for aspiring web developers…right?
Rishi Patel is a hopeless romantic. So when his parents tell him that his future wife will be attending the same summer program as him—wherein he’ll have to woo her—he’s totally on board. Because as silly as it sounds to most people in his life, Rishi wants to be arranged, believes in the power of tradition, stability, and being a part of something much bigger than himself.
The Shahs and Patels didn’t mean to start turning the wheels on this “suggested arrangement” so early in their children’s lives, but when they noticed them both gravitate toward the same summer program, they figured, Why not?
Dimple and Rishi may think they have each other figured out. But when opposites clash, love works hard to prove itself in the most unexpected ways.
Hey guys. I spent the last weekend in London with my dad for a Harry Potter weekend. On Saturday we went to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and on Sunday we went to the Warner Bros Studio Tour. I’m going to do an overview of what was in the studio tour so if you don’t want to know, don’t read the Sunday bit.
Hey guys. Welcome to another WWW Wednesday post. WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words. All you have to do is answer these three questions: 1) What are you currently reading? 2) What did you recently finish reading? 3) What do you think you’ll read next?
Hey guys. Today I thought I’d share with you books and series I want to reread. These are all books or series I really loved the first time round and really want to get back to.
Hey guys. I thought I’d start doing a series of author spotlights focusing on Australian authors. I grew up in Australia so Aussie authors will always be special to me. This also seems like a good way to make sure I read more Aussie authors. I’ve decided to start off by spotlighting one of my favourite Aussie authors, and one of my favourite authors gnerally, Matthew Reilly.
