I really enjoy sharing what I’ve been reading recently through this medium of blog posts with multiple mini reviews in them so I definitely will keep this format up. Today, I’m bringing you mini reviews of 4 contemporary books and 1 fantasy book that I have read recently and really enjoyed.
Ali Zafar is back on the big screen again with his first Pakistani film, Teefa in Trouble which releases tomorrow worldwide. Teefa in Trouble is also Zafar’s first foray into film production as he has partnered up with Yash Raj Films to distribute the film worldwide. The film follows Teefa who goes to Poland to bring Anya (Maya Ali) to Pakistan to marry gangster Butt’s son but gets into trouble with Anya’s gangster father and the police. I got the opportunity to sit down with Ali Zafar for a quick discussion about the film.
The Breakfast Club meets One Day in Floored, a unique collaborative novel by seven bestselling and award-winning YA authors: Sara Barnard, Holly Bourne, Tanya Byrne, Non Pratt, Melinda Salisbury, Lisa Williamson and Eleanor Wood.
When they got in the lift, they were strangers (though didn’t that guy used to be on TV?): Sasha, who is desperately trying to deliver a parcel; Hugo, who knows he’s the best-looking guy in the lift and is eyeing up Velvet, who knows what that look means when you hear her name and it doesn’t match the way she looks, or the way she talks; Dawson, who was on TV, but isn’t as good-looking as he was a few years ago and is desperately hoping no one recognizes him; Kaitlyn, who’s losing her sight but won’t admit it, and who used to have a poster of Dawson on her bedroom wall, and Joe, who shouldn’t be here at all, but who wants to be here the most.
And one more person, who will bring them together again on the same day every year.

I’m really trying to get back into bookish blogging and I really felt like blogging today but I had no idea what to blog about. So I thought why not do a book tag? Every year, around this time of the year, this book tag starts floating around to evaluate and look at what books you’ve read this year so it seemed like the perfect tag to do.
Today, I’m bringing you a fun little interview with Sheheryar Munawar, star of the Pakistani film 7 Din Mohabbat In. 7 Din Mohabbat In is a hilarious romantic tale about a young man’s quest to find his true love in a crowded Karachi neighborhood, and the obstacles, both spiritual and physical, that he must overcome in order to achieve his goals. It released worldwide on Friday and I thought it was a really fun family film. I was lucky enough to be able to interview the main star ahead of the film’s release.
So it’s been a while since I talked about some of the books that I’m reading and this isn’t because I haven’t been reading. In fact, I’ve actually read quite a lot but I just haven’t felt like blogging about them. However, today I’m going to fill you in on some of the recent books I’ve read and loved.
When I was looking at my TBR, I noticed how many series I haven’t finished so I thought I’d share them with you guys. There are a lot. This post is gonna be the series that I definitely won’t finish for whatever reason. I’m sorry if some of your favourite books are on this list but they’re just not for me.
I have many incomplete series so I’ve decided to write a few blog posts about them. In this post, I’m going to talk about the series that I’m not sure if I’m going to finish. I’m on the fence for most of these series so I could really be convinced either way.
I have a really bad habit of never finishing book series. I thought I would share some of the book series that I need to finish with you so that I can be held accountable for them. I’m determined to finish all of these series at some point but I need some motivation so I’m hoping that writing this post will motivate me.
