What I Read In January and February 2020

Hi everyone! How are you all?

I really hope you all are safe and staying in. If you get too anxious, just breathe and pray. Let’s hope this too shall pass.

Was there ever a time I used to post monthly wrap-ups on time? I certainly can’t recall. As far as 2020 goes, it completely slipped my mind to post a reading wrap-up of the first two months. Yeah, I know that doesn’t paint me in a good light. Anyways, I am quite happy with the amount of books, and the kind of books I have been reading so far this year. Of course, I’m blissfully ignoring the list of books I need to read for college, but I am making a lot of progress with my physical TBR books.

January Reads

Art Matters by Neil Gaiman

I started my year with a re-read. Art Matters by Neil Gaiman is a treat and an inspiration for readers, writers and all kinds of artists around the world. It is the kick in the back and the spark of encouragement you need to get back to creating your art. It also gives us the much-needed reminder of how valuable and resourceful libraries are. This is a book I would recommend to everyone, whether you are a writer, painter or someone who wants to try their hand at any art form but they are holding themselves back. Imagine and create because art matters.

Rating- 5/5

5 Random Movies To Watch on Netflix

Hi everyone!

For some reason I cannot explain, movies are hard for me to get into. A five season TV Show? I’ll binge watch it in a blink. But even a 1.5 hour movie is hard for me to get hooked to. However, I do manage to watch a movie now and then.

Because of the quarantine, I know a lot of us are stuck to our couch or bed scrolling through Netflix for something to watch.

10 New Adult College Romance Book Recommendations

Hi everyone! How are you all?

As promised, here’s the second part to my romance recommendations list. You can check out the first part here – 10 Romance Book Recommendations

Disclaimer: I have not given a detailed description of my thoughts on these books. The reason is that most of these books are fast-paced fun reads that are enjoyable but not memorable and so, I don’t have much to say. A lot of books of this genre are cheesy and don’t have a very unique plot either. However, I think as long as the story is executed well and the writing is good, they are worth reading. All the books mentioned here are some of the better NA books I have read so far. I have also given their Goodreads blurb so you can read that also and decide if you want to pick any of these!

10 Romance Book Recommendations

Hi everyone! How are you all?

I recently realized I’ve never done a romance recommendations post on this blog, and that doesn’t make sense since I have read my fair share of them. So I bring to you my long list of romance book suggestions. I’m going to post a second part soon so keep an eye out for that!

A Place in the Sun by R.S. Grey

A Place in the Sun

The plot of this book isn’t very different from a lot of romances but what made it an interesting read was that the story took place in a town called Vernazza in Italy. This setting gave a whole other vibe to the book and I absolutely loved reading it.

Interview with S. B. Goncarova, Author of Harnessing Light

Hi everyone! I recently read Harnessing Light by S.B. Goncarova. You can read my review of it here. The author also did an amazing guest post here- When Was The Last Time You Wrote A Letter? Today, I had the fortune of interviewing her here.

Harnessing Light

Blurb from Goodreads

“I SAID GOODNIGHT knowing full well it was goodbye, and then in the dark, you were there, on the bed next to me, only three thousand something miles away, and the quiet sounds of you muddling on your guitar seep into my veins and lull me into that cloudy space between awake and asleep, and in the end I am brought back to the beginning—”

Can one create a love so bright, that it crosses distance and time? In this enduring love story, Harnessing Light is the journey of one woman trekking across the world in a search to find home, peace, purpose and love. In a quest that transcends physical limitations, Harnessing Light beckons us to our own, to discover what the true search really is.
