March Wrap-Up

For such a busy month, I am still glad to be able to read 5 books this March. This month has been full of exams every week, so I hardly got time to really sit down and read something non-academic. But I was able to manage to sneak in a few chapters everyday so I can read something wonderful aside from my Anatomy, Physiology, and Biochemistry transes lol.

First Line Fridays #3

It’s been a while since I’ve done this, so here’s a feature of one of the books I’m currently reading!

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

“There’s blood on my hands, blood between my toes, blood speckled in my hair. It’s splashed across my chest, and to my horror, I can taste a few droplets on my lips.”

ARC Request Updates: Part 1

Hello guys! I’m sure if you’re following me in my Bookstagram and Tumblr accounts, you’ll know that I’m a part of The Book Robin Hoods, which is a new author-and-reader forum/club where authors can ask any of the handpicked members to review their books, authors can ask other authors to proofread their works, and reviewers can exchange a lot of ideas. I’m really happy to be part of this club, as this is one of the first major review clubs I’m currently in.
