Review: When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

I finally picked up When Dimple Met Rishi and ohmygod, it’s as cute and amazing as everyone says it is. I loved every page, every word of it. Definitely one of my new favorite contemporaries! The story is told from two pov’s: Dimple’s and Rishi’s. They do not know each other but their parents have arranged for them to marry and their first meeting will be at the famous Insomnia Con for web developers. Well, Rishi knows their first meeting will be there. Dimple.. is completely in the dark about this. Having no idea Rishi doesn’t know Dimple doesn’t know he greets her as future wife and in a shocked reply Dimple throws an ice coffee in his face. Great first meeting! Read more →

Review: The Otto Digmore Difference by Brent Hartinger

I was going to say that this isn’t exactly the kind of book that I would normally read, and in one way it definitely is not, but in another – when I really think about – this is exactly the kind of book I would normally read. The Otto Digmore Difference by Brent Hartinger follows the story of Otto Digmore, an actor, who has recently had what he believes is his big break in Hollywood, starring in a supporting role on a popular sitcom. However when Otto’s show is cancelled, he finds that the only roles that have opened up to him are those trying to take advantage of his severely scarred face and cast him as a villain or a freak. That is until a role comes up that seems perfect. The novel follows the journey that Otto and his best friend Russel take across the country in the hopes of landing Otto’s dream role. All the typical road trip cliches happen — much to Russel’s delight — and a number of old feelings reappear — not that Russel can ever know about that. Read more →

The Bookshelf Tour 2.0

What’s up you guys?! It’s been a while since I did a bookshelf tour and my gosh, are things different now. For starters, I moved in with my boyfriend and he loves reading as well, so we’ve combined all of our books and created a tiny library. I’m constantly in hearteyes mode. Anyway, I’ve decided to not show you only pictures this time, because, if you didn’t know it yet, I’m also on Youtube now! So here’s a video of me showing you my bookshelves. Read more →

Review: Cherry by Lindsey Rosin

When I read the blurb of Cherry, I knew I wanted to read it. Four best friends, about to graduate, creating a sex pact? I am in! I’m so glad I finally picked up this book, because I absolutely adored it. Layla, Emma, Alex and Zoe have a couple months left until graduation.. and before they have to part to each go to college. Layla, being the planner she is, has created a to do list with things she wants to do before graduation. Get highlights, make an A in English Lit.. and have sex with her boyfriend of two years. Before you know, The Crew (as the girls are called) have created the sex pact: they will all lose their virginity before graduation together. Not together together, but seperately together. Layla has the perfect plan to loose it on Valentine’s Day, Alex says she’s already lost her v-card, Emma is the first one of the bunch to loose hers after the sex pact has been created and Zoe starts giggling as soon as something says the word orgasm, so they so conveniently start using the word fireworks instead. And they invent the sexie, the after sex selfie, to send to The Chat as proof after they’ve done the dirty. Layla even creates a whole Sex Doc, with all the tips and tricks for the big deed.
