20160623_015309

A huge thanks to Raven @ Dreamy Addictions for tagging me in the Mid-Year Freak Out Tag! (It’s mid-year… let’s freaaaaak out guys!) I know… lame! XD

1. Best book you’ve read so far in 2015.


I’ll go with Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover.

2. Best sequel you’ve read so far in 2015.


Of course it’s A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas. You can read my review here.

3. New release you haven’t read yet, but want to.


I sooo want to read Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum!

4. Most anticipated release for the second half of the year.


It’s going to be Gemina! by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. Duh!

5. Biggest disappointment.


After reading the blurb, I though Change Places With Me by Lois Metzger waa going to be mind-blowing but unfortunately it turned out to be a disappointment.

6. Biggest surprise.


I received a finished copy of The Curse of Damini by Debajani Mohanty. I really wasn’t sure at first but then I absolutely fell in love with the story! You can read my review here.

7. Favorite new author (debut or new to you).

It’ll have to be Karole Cozzo, Kelly Oram and Colleen Hoover!

8. Newest Fictional crush.


Well Rhysand and Jace are already in my list, so I’m gonna go with Will Herondale from The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare! I finally jumped the Will train… choo choo! (Yes, I’m fully aware of the fact that I’m weird.)

9. Newest favourite character.

I LOVED Mor and Armen from A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas.

10. Book that made you cry.


Oh this book did! My poor little heart!

11. Book that made you happy.

Weird question because all books make me happy. BUT here’s one I can’t stop recommending because it sooo good and absolutely hilarious!

Holding Court by K.C. Held. You can read my review here.

12. Favorite book to film adaptation you saw this year.


I definitely enjoyed The 5th Wave! You can read both and my book and the movie review here. Although I’m pretty excited for Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, the trailer seems awesome, I plan to start the series by then!

13. Favorite review you’ve written this year.

Well… this is kind of weird. But nonetheless I’ll go with Anomalies by Sadie Turner and Colette Freedman and Saven Disclosure by Siobhan Davis.

14. Most beautiful book you’ve bought so far this year (or received).

This gorgeous baby! I sooo in love with the cover of Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff and also When We Collided by Emery Lord.

15. What books do you need to read by the end of the year?

WHERE DO I START!! I need to read Six Of Crows by Leigh Bardugo, End of Days by Susan Ee, A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab, Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson, Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge, Red Rising by Pierce Brown and so on and on… I’ll stop otherwise this list will never end!

After this loooong post, I don’ have the ability to tag anyone separately, so consider yourself tagged!


So this was my freak out! Do we have any books in common or what are your opinion?

Week 2- Camp NaNoWriMo Update! And plans for Week 3!

CNW_Participant

Hey guys! How are you all doing this week?

This post is going to be pretty short as I’ll give a quick update about how I’m faring in Camp NaNoWriMo so far. To read about my previous week’s update and my novel’s blurb (well… kind of), you can click here.

So as I told you guys earlier, week 1 was pretty good for me. I have already reached my minimal goal of 15K. So I’ve updated my goal to 25K now. It’s not much but I’m willing to push myself further.

Also, previously I was writing from a single POV though a second POV was thrown in between at regular intervals. But then I noticed that it was kind of becoming monotonous plus I’ve seen most of the NA novels have alternating point of views. I understood that why more deeply. Therefore I made a few changes which actually helped me. I was stuck but due to this change I was successful in outlining most of my chapters yesterday night. Only a few are left! 😀

But this week’s progress has been slow as I couldn’t write these past 3 days as I’ve been quite sick but I’m feeling better now so I’m going to get back to writing today.

My plans for week 3 is…. to write of course! But progress is going to be slow as well because I have a big test this upcoming Friday and I’ve got a loooot of studying to do but I have got the last week free, so I mostly plan to catch up on that week but I’m going to try my best and continue writing as much as possible this week!


Are you participating in Camp NaNoWriMo this month? How’s your writing coming along? Have you face any difficulties along the way? If yes, then how have you overcome it?
