I have this fear of long books. I avoid them like the plague but I have read quite a few long books. To figure out what the longest books are that I’ve read, I went on to goodreads and organised my ‘read’ shelf by number of pages and here we go.
I’ve been incredibly lucky with meeting authors. I’ve met so many of my favourite authors, especially UKYA authors. However, like everyone else, there are still so many authors that I love but haven’t met yet. Today, I’m going to be sharing some of those authors with you today.
This week is a tough topic for me. There aren’t many books by my favourite authors that I have yet to read because I am the sort of person who likes to read every book by an author that I love. Therefore, some of these books are not by my favourite authors but they are all by authors that I admire greatly.
I’m not a massive fan of setting TBRs. I am a very big mood reader so I don’t really like to stick to TBRs but seasonal TBRs are what I can get on board with. There are always so many books that I need to read but that I’m constantly putting off. So this week, I’m telling you guys about the top 10 books on my TBR for the rest of the year.
I read a lot of books. Most of the books I read are incredibly hyped up either in the UKYA community or in the YA community in general. However, we all have that odd book that we read and become obsessed with that no one else has read. This week’s topic is all about those books.
So I am an awful blogger. I basically never write blog posts nowadays and I really want to improve that. I therefore decided that the best way to get back into blogging is to start doing Top Ten Tuesdays again. 3 years ago, I did these every week but then I stopped and I really regret that decision. The best way to motivate myself into getting back into blogging is by doing weekly posts and that’s what I’m doing starting now. This week’s topic isn’t bookish related but it’s actually perfect for me because this summer, I have been loving watching TV and I especially love binge-watching.
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.
