HEY GUYS *waves frantically* here’s my very late but nonetheless Jan book wrap up 🎉 

I managed to read 5 books this month and though that isn’t much, it’s fine according to the reading slump I’ve been going through for a long time now. So, without further ado, here are all the books I read in the month of January! 


Synopsis: Long before she was the Queen of Hearts, Catherine Pinkerton was just a girl who wanted to fall in love. 

Long before she was the Queen of Hearts, Catherine Pinkerton was just a girl who wanted to fall in love. 
Catherine may be one of the most desired girls in Wonderland and a favorite of the unmarried King of Hearts, but her interests lie elsewhere. A talented baker, all she wants is to open a shop with her best friend. But according to her mother, such a goal is unthinkable for the young woman who could be the next queen. 
Then Cath meets Jest, the handsome and mysterious court joker. For the first time, she feels the pull of true attraction. At the risk of offending the king and infuriating her parents, she and Jest enter into an intense, secret courtship. Cath is determined to define her own destiny and fall in love on her terms. But in a land thriving with magic, madness and monsters, fate has other plans.  

Rating: 3.5/ 5 stars. 

Mini review: I expected a lot from this book as it’s by one of my all time fav authors but it really disappointed me 😦 the first half of the book was super amazing but the second half? Let’s not talk about that.  


Synopsis: Everyone thinks they know Libby Strout, the girl once dubbed ‘America’s Fattest Teen’. But no one’s taken the time to look past her weight to get to see who she really is. Since her mum’s death, she’s been picking up the pieces in the privacy of her home, dealing with her heartbroken father and her own grief. Now, Libby’s ready: for high school, for new friends, for love and for EVERY POSSIBILITY LIFE HAS to OFFER. I know the part I want to play here at MVB High. I want to be the girl who can do anything. 
Everyone thinks they know Jack Maslin too. Yes, he’s got swagger, but he’s also mastered the art of fitting in. What no one knows is that Jack has a secret: he can’t recognize faces. Even his own brothers are strangers to him. He’s the guy who can re-engineer and rebuild anything, but he can’t understand what’s going on with the inner workings of his own brain. So he tells himself to play it cool: Be charming. Be hilarious. Don’t get too close to anyone. 
Until he meets Libby. When the two get tangled up in a cruel high school game which lands them in group counselling, Libby and Jack are both angry and then surprised. Because the more time they spend together, the less alone they feel. Because sometimes when you meet someone, it changes the world – theirs and yours.

Rating: 4.75/5 stars. 

Mini Review: I didn’t really expect a lot from this book as I had read many negative reviews but oh god, did it prove me wrong! I loved this book. I loved the relationship between Libby and Jack. I love the way they deal with their problems. I just loved it! 


Synopsis (for book one: the wrath and the dawn) :  

A sumptuous and epically told love story inspired by A Thousand and One Nights 
Every dawn brings horror to a different family in a land ruled by a killer. Khalid, the eighteen-year-old Caliph of Khorasan, takes a new bride each night only to have her executed at sunrise. So it is a suspicious surprise when sixteen-year-old Shahrzad volunteers to marry Khalid. But she does so with a clever plan to stay alive and exact revenge on the Caliph for the murder of her best friend and countless other girls. Shazi’s wit and will, indeed, get her through to the dawn that no others have seen, but with a catch . . . she’s falling in love with the very boy who killed her dearest friend. 
She discovers that the murderous boy-king is not all that he seems and neither are the deaths of so many girls. Shazi is determined to uncover the reason for the murders and to break the cycle once and for all.

Rating: the wrath and the dawn: 4.5/5 stars. 

The rose and the dagger: 4/5 stars. 

Mini review: brilliant romance? Check. Diverse characters? Check. Swoon worthy males? Check. Mouth watering food? Check. Amazing story line? Check 


Synopsis:  New York City as you’ve never seen it before. A thousand-story tower stretching into the sky. A glittering vision of the future, where anything is possible—if you want it enough.
Welcome to Manhattan, 2118.
A hundred years in the future, New York is a city of innovation and dreams. But people never change: everyone here wants something…and everyone has something to lose.
Leda Cole’s flawless exterior belies a secret addiction—to a drug she never should have tried and a boy she never should have touched.
Eris Dodd-Radson’s beautiful, carefree life falls to pieces when a heartbreaking betrayal tears her family apart.
Rylin Myers’s job on one of the highest floors sweeps her into a world—and a romance—she never imagined…but will her new life cost Rylin her old one?
Watt Bakradi is a tech genius with a secret: he knows everything about everyone. But when he’s hired to spy by an upper-floor girl, he finds himself caught up in a complicated web of lies.
And living above everyone else on the thousandth floor is Avery Fuller, the girl genetically designed to be perfect. The girl who seems to have it all—yet is tormented by the one thing she can never have.

Rating: 5/5 stars.

BOOKSTAGRAM 101: How I Edit My Pictures 

If you follow me on insta and have ever wondered how I edit my pics, then look no further! Want to see how I make my photos go from THIS to THAT? Then you’ll get all the info right in the blog post! 

STEP 1: 

The first thing I do is add the fade filter from the iPhone preset filters! 

Step 2: 

The app i use to edit my photos is snapseed. Seriously guys that app is a life saver! 

I go to the tune image option and: 

Increase the brightness by 15-30. Depending on the picture. 

Increase the contrast by 40-50. 

Decrease the saturation by 20-30. 

Increase the ambiance by 30-40. 

Increase the highlights by 20-30. 

Decrease the shadows by 5-10. 

Decrease the warmth by 5-10. 

All of this vary according to the picture but this is how usually edit 😀

Step 3: 

The next thing I do is add go to the grainy film filters in snapseed and select X01 from there.

In X01, I decrease the grain to 5 and set the strength to 60-70. 

The strength also varies according to the picture. 

So this is all I do to edit my pictures. I will be posting more blog posts related to booktography so don’t forget to follow my blog ❤

1) Poster Colours: you can also use water colours but you would have to paint multiple coats to make it look solid. I’m using blue and purple camel poster paints.

2) A glass bottle: one may think they are hard to find but they actually aren’t. I got mine for free from Keventers when I bought a milkshake from that place. 

3) A silver glitter pen: you can use any coloured glitter pen but I used a silver one because it suits more on blue and purple. I used the metallic painty pen from ZIG. 

4) Paint Brush.

5) Whitener or fluid pen (optional) 

6) Water (to mix the colours) 


Step 1: 

Take your bottle and apply a thick and uniform coating of your first paint. Make any regular or irregular shape you want. You can apply it on both the side of the bottle or one side according to your liking. You can use any colour but remember that the lighter colour always looks better when used for the actual base. Again, make sure it’s uniform. 

Step 2: 

Use your second colour around the edges to make a boundary. Remember that the darker colour always looks better when used for the boundary. 

Step 3: 

Write your quote! I wanted to make a Court of Mist and Fury inspired bottle so the quote I used was “To the people who look at the stars and listen” and on the other side “To the stars who listen and the dreams that are answered”. You can write the same quote on both the sides or different similar ones. 

Step 4: (optional) 

Since it matched my quote, I decided to make Stars using my whitener. 


This is what it looks like! If you ever make one, be sure to tag @booksforinfinity on Instagram if you do upload a pic. 

Thank you so much for reading 🙂

I have loved reading since the day I know how to read. My mom used to read out to my brother when he was little but never used to do the same for me since I did it for myself. Our school has this system in which they reward a student if he or she reads more than a specific number of pages in a year and that’s why I read my first book ever. My mom also loves reading so she never minded getting me new books and telling me the meanings of words I didn’t know. I read the whole Famous Five and Secret Seven series by the time I was in 5th grade. Then I read the Harry Potter series in 6th grade and got absolutely addicted to reading. I read that whole series in a week and a half and then took a break from reading for 6 months because whenever I saw a book I used to be like “Nah, you can’t be as good as Harry Potter”. Then one day my best friend and I decided to read the Hunger Games series and then I realised, even though the books can’t be as good as Harry Potter, they surely are the best source of entertainment and knowledge building. Then I read the Divergent trilogy and the Percy Jackson series and knew I was obsessed. So this was how my journey of reading started! 



1. I read around 12 books every month if I’m not in a reading slump. 

2. My most favourite series of all time is the Harry Potter series. 

3. I love fantasy, historical fictions and Contemporary. 

4. I have had a bookstagram (bookish Instagram) account for about 7 months now and most of you know must be knowing me from there only. My username there is @booksforinfinity 😀 

5. If I ever adopt a cat, I will name it Luna (after Luna Lovegood) and if I ever get a dog, I will name it Eddy (after Eddy Castillo from the Bloodlines series) 

6. My most fav book to movie adaption is that of If I Stay. 

7. I can read even when it’s noisy but like to read intense scenes only when it’s all quiet. 

8. My mom loves reading almost as much as I do. 

9. I own around 275 books. 

10. I can’t read ebooks. They give me headaches. 

So these are some bookish facts about me. Hope you could relate to these!

No two person ever read the same book -Edmund Wilson 


1. The Megafast Readers

These are the people who read 20 books a month. How. Do. You. Manage. To. Read. So. Much? I honestly can’t read more than 12 books a month and am proud of myself when I reach that number but then I look at this kind of readers. They are supermen/women who just lack a cape. Believe me. 

2. The Dog Ear-ers (aka the monsters) 

Why would you ever do that to a poor little book? Why would you ever even think of folding its pages?😭 Why can’t you just use a bookmark? It’s so easy 😭

3. The Emotional Wrecks 

These readers need a pack of tissues for their every read. Because let’s face it, the authors of our generation have a hobby of killing all our favourite characters. *cough* Hunger Games *cough* Divergent. 

4. The Hoarders

While hoarding books is one of my fav things ever, I own more read books than unread ones. But these types of readers own more unread than read ones. See, i have so much of self control (or maybe I am just broke most of the time hah) 

5. The Serial Killers 

“Harm my book and you’ll regret it all your life” no need to say, all of us readers are too possessive of our books and while lending them this is the warning we give. Because that book is a piece of my soul and I will be willing to kill anyone who does any damage to it. 

So, this is all for today! Hope you guys enjoyed it! 😁

*this book was sent to me by the author in exchange of an honest review* 

Title: Silent Symmetry. 

Author: JB Dutton. 

Number of Pages: 194 (so short huh?) 

Synopsis (sourced from Amazon): 

Kari Marriner’s earliest memory is her father’s death in a car crash back in small-town Wisconsin. Now, 12 years later, her mother has been hired by a pseudo-religious organization in Manhattan called the Temple of Truth (a.k.a. the ToT). At Chelsea Prep, Kari develops a crush on classmate Cruz. But when she realizes that Noon, another attractive guy at school, is involved with the ToT, her curiosity gets the better of her.

Kari stumbles upon a secret tunnel leading from her apartment to another in the building, where an ancient book holds images she can scarcely believe, and a cavernous room contains… something inexplicable. As Kari pieces together the incredible evidence, she discovers that the ToT is run by other-worldly beings called The Embodied who influence human behavior and have established a global long-term human breeding program. But why? And what is her role in all this?

Just as she starts wondering whether the love she feels for Cruz is genuine or if her emotions are being controlled by The Embodied, her mother is kidnapped and Kari has to figure out who is human, who is Embodied, and who she can count on to help rescue her mother.

My thoughts: I liked this book very much. I won’t say I loved it, it was too short for that. I often don’t like short books but this one was an exception. I love how the author weaved the story. I also loved how it keeps us on the edge of the seat all along. Yes, it has a love triangle. But hey, isn’t that the case with all the YA books? And this love triangle is so different from all the common and annoying ones. You’ll love both the guys but you still won’t know who you want the protagonist to end up with. What I didn’t like about the book was that it lacked the description of the characters and therefore, didn’t form any special bond with the characters and the reader. What I did like was that how different the story line and world creation was. I would be spoiling you if I tell you what it is, but I can tell you that’s it about aliens and otherworldly creatures and the concept of those is so different. Overall, this book was a great read and I’m still intrigued to read the next two books in the series/trilogy.

Rules: if you are tagged, you have to acknowledge the person who tagged you. Well that’s it hah! 

Question 1– Unpopular opinion on a book/series? 

My least favourite Harry Potter book is the Prisoner of Azkaban. There. I said it. That doesn’t mean I don’t love it with all my heart but according to all the HP surveys I have seen, Prisoner of Azkaban is the fav Harry Potter book of at least 50% of Potterheads. 

Question 2– What’s your favourite snack? 

Popcorn. Popcorn all the way

*sourced from Giphy* 

Question 3 – Which Hogwarts and Ilvermorny house do you belong to? 

Thunderbird-ian and proud. B)

Question 4– Do you mind if your books’ pages become yellowed? 

I personally loveeee yellow pages. And their fragrance. Another reason I love purchasing second hand books. 😍

Question 5– Used books or new books? 

Second hand books-

Pros: yellow pages and amazing fragrance😍 and are also pretty cheap!

Cons: might be torn. :/

New books-

Pros: brand new and perfect condition. 

Cons: relatively more expensive than used ones. 

So I can’t really tell what I’ll go for :/ 

Question 6– Hardcovers or Paperbacks? 

I love love love hardcovers but I only own about 20 of them. Why they so expensive? Why am I so broke? Help. 😥 

Question 7– Who is your favourite author? 

-> J.K Rowling 

-> Richelle Mead 

-> Rick Riordan 

-> Kiera Cass. 

Don’t make me choose just one because I can’t. It’s a wonder I was able to narrow it down to just 4. 

Question 8– In which country do you live in/belong to? 

India aka the country where all books are released very late 😥 but that doesn’t make me love my country any less 😁

Question 9– Do you like reading multiple books at a time? Why? Why not? 

I’m not really a fan of that but I don’t mind even when I do. I don’t like it because when I read multiple books at once, I tend to not finish any of them 

Question 10– Favourite book in a trilogy?

Catching fire from the Hunger Games trilogy 😀 

Question 11– What are your feelings on Readathons? I personally love them. 

I personally love them too. I once finished the whole Lunar Chronicles series for the SlaythatSeries readathon. They motivate me to read more! 


1. I freak out when I have to cross roads. Like start hyperventilating. I have overcome that fear over the years but it’s still there present somewhere deep down. 

2. I LOVE HAMILTON!❤️ my favourite song in it is Satisfied. Angelica is so badass in that one. 

3. I’m very short. Only 5″3. But I’m only 13 so I guess there’s still a chance that my height might increase. 

4. If you ever ask any of my friends to give views on me, they will surely mention she is the girl who reads. 

5. I forced my best friend to read the Selection series by Kiera Cass and she loved it. And now she loves reading. All thanks to me B) 

6. Minions and pandas are the cutest creatures in the world. According to me at least. 

7. I might be the biggest procrastinator in this world :)))) 

8. I love calligraphy, DIYs and all stuff related 

9. I’m a pretty fast reader. 

10. “I’ll stop wearing black when they invent a darker colour”. So yes. Black is my fav colour.

11. I’m running out of facts. Hah. So let’s see, I don’t like coffee. But I love tea. Okay now don’t kill me for that.

As you guys might already know, I read a lot of books. But I never seem to find the time to review them all so I thought why not write mini reviews? I’ll be doing this for 5-10 books every month😁


1) Flawed- In a world dying for perfection, the ‘flawed are treated as bad as you think is possible. And even worse. Loved the world building and the dystopian touch to the book.

2) All The Bright Places- Just like The Fault In Our Stars, but with better character development and writing style.

3) The Perks of Being a Wallflower- Written in letter format, this tiny book is capable of giving you all the feels.

4) Ready Player One- Loved the sci-fi touch. Loved the video gaming element. Loved the book.

5) Will Grayson, Will Grayson- Liked the idea behind the book but, just as always, John Green’s writing failed to make me feel anything.


6) Shopaholic and Baby- This book is sure to make you laugh out loud for real. I was able to relate to the protagonist so much!

7) Fangirl- Another book and another protagonist I relate so much to. Cath’s obsession with the Simon Snow series is very much like mine with Harry Potter.

8) The Book Thief- Yet another protagonist who’s just like me, whoops! Make sure you have a box of tissues ready while reading this book. 

9) The Star-Touched Queen- Immensely in love with the Indian mythology touch! If you like fantasy and mythology, this book will not disappoint.

10) My Heart & Other Blackholes- I had tears straining down my eyes when I was reading this book. One of my favourite contemporaries of all time for sure.

So, that’s it for today. Do let me know if you liked this idea of doing mini reviews. Thank you 😊

He quickly went from a friend to a companion, to soul mate, to heartbreak.

 With the author

Question 1- what inspired you to write?

Answer– Until three years ago, I haven’t even considered writing as a possibility. I’ve always loved reading, yet never considered writing as a career. After a conversation with one of my best friends, where he told me about his lifelong dream to write a movie script, it suddenly hit me how much I’d like to write, as well. It was like that dream you’re too afraid to admit you have. We ended up being each other’s writing buddy and four months later, my first novel was being published. 

Question 2– Tell us one thing hardly anyone knows about you

Answer– I don’t particularly like ice-cream. Does this count? I eat it maybe twice a year and even then, it’s only one flavor – hazelnut.
Question 3– Who is your personal favourite character from your book, Our Demons, Best Friends?

Answer- Hmm, that’s a tough question. I become involved with every character from the moment I begin developing their background stories, but since Sebastian’s is inspired by real-life events, I’m attached to him on a whole different level.
Question 4- What is your favourite book?

Answer- Oh, this is impossible for me to answer because I honestly change my mind every other day. Right now it’s “A Court of Thorns and Roses” only because I’ve been rereading the series, but by the time this interview will be published, I’m sure I’ll already have another answer for you.
Question 5– Do you aim for a set amount of pages/words you must write per day?
Answer- The psychological threshold for me is two thousand words per day, but days when I can barely write two hundred still come up from time to time. But that’s the writing process and I wouldn’t change anything about it.

Author Bio 

Writer of Our Demons, Best Friends, Love Me While I’m Gone and Color Me Yours. Perpetually sleep deprived, but never sorry. I am a colorful mix of the things I love. Chocolate eclairs. The sound of a guitar. The first snow of the year. Sleeping on freshly washed sheets. The smell of a new book. Man buns. Using rock-paper-scissors to settle an argument. Old, washed up jeans. Comfort food. Old people acting like kids. The ocean. My dog. My family.

So, I read a total of 6 books this month. 4 in physical form and 2 ebooks. I won’t say I’m entirely satisfied with the number but it’s not that bad.

1) The Unexpected Guest 

Synopsis ( sourced from Amazon)- When a stranger runs his car into a ditch in dense fog in South Wales and makes his way to an isolated house, he discovers a woman standing over the dead body of her wheelchair-bound husband, gun in her hand. She admits to murder, and the unexpected guest offers to help her concoct a cover story. But is it possible that Laura Warwick did not commit the murder after all? If so, who is she shielding? The victim’s retarded young half-brother or his dying matriarchal mother? Laura’s lover? Perhaps the father of the little boy killed in an accident for which Warwick was responsible? The house seems full of possible suspects…

Rating- 4/5 ⭐️ 

Short Review- This book was bloody brilliant. Agatha Christie is really a genius! 

2) Wink Poppy Midnight 

Synopsis (sourced from Amazon) – Every story needs a hero. 

Every story needs a villain. 

Every story needs a secret. 
Wink is the odd, mysterious neighbor girl, wild red hair and freckles. Poppy is the blond bully and the beautiful, manipulative high school queen bee. Midnight is the sweet, uncertain boy caught between them. Wink. Poppy. Midnight. Two girls. One boy. Three voices that burst onto the page in short, sharp, bewitching chapters, and spiral swiftly and inexorably toward something terrible or tricky or tremendous. 
What really happened? 

Someone knows. 

Someone is lying. 

Rating- 4/5 ⭐️ 

Short Review- You won’t know what’s going on until the very end. But you’ll like that very much.

When she wakes up, she has no memory of what had happened to her and about the accident. All that she can remember is riding along the snow-wet Oregon road with her family. In the next moment, she watches herself being taken out of the wreck and sees her own damaged body. While her body lies in a coma, her consciousness has somehow managed to escape it. She can see her family members and friends waiting at the hospital where doctors are attending to her after the accident. She suddenly realises that she has to decide between going back to live a more difficult life than what she previously expected or just pass away and leave the world forever.

Rating – 3.5/5
