Restore Me by J. L. Seegars || Book Review

I read romance books almost all the time and have read just about every kind of romance. Some, I get back to often. Some, I hate with my whole heart. And some, I become obsessed with and think about at the most random times. They slip into my heart and hold it. They make me … Read more

Drag Me Up by R. M. Virtues || Book Review

I read Drag Me Up a couple of months back and have been procrastinating writing a review for it. It’s always the best books that are harder to review. And this is definitely one of the best romance books that I’ve read. Credits to Purabi and Nick for promoting this book so much on Twitter that I finally picked it up. … Read more

You’ve Reached Sam by Dustin Thao || Book Review

You’ve Reached Sam has been slowly winning over the book community. Although it is slated to release only in November 2021, it is already considered a really good book in the community.

The Poppy War by R. F. Kuang || Book Review

There has been so much hype for The Poppy War online since the time it released. I added it to my list and was waiting for the paperback’s price to go down so I can own it as a physical copy. Sadly, it never went down.* I finally caved and got the ebook just in time to … Read more

The Right Swipe by Alisha Rai || Book Review

The Right Swipe is one of my favourite reads of 2020, hands down. It’s probably the best romance book I read, too.

Pages of June || Reading Wrap-up

Hello and welcome to my first ever monthly reading wrap-up! I generally don’t do these posts because 1) I read too many books and I’m lazy to write about them all and 2) my wrap-ups would be too long for anyone’s liking. This blog may be called the wordy habitat but I know when I’m … Read more

I’m back with another reading wrap-up because I read some books and I have opinions to share. Will this become a monthly thing? Who knows. I’m just winging it for now.

Reading has been a vital part of my days for half my life. Since the first time I picked up novels in middle grade, books have been my companions through rain and shine.
