All's fair in love, war and noodles . . . If Bao Nguyen had to describe himself, he’d say he was a rock. Steady and strong, but not particularly interesting. His grades are average, his social status unremarkable. He works at his parents’ pho restaurant, and even there, he is his parents’ fifth favorite employee. If Linh Mai had to describe herself, she’d say she was a firecracker. Stable when unlit, but full of potential for joy and spark and fire. She loves art, and she dreams of making a career of it one day. The only problem? Her parents rely on her in ways they’re not willing to admit, including expecting her to work practically full-time at their family’s pho restaurant. For decades, the Mais and the Nguyens have been at odds, having owned competing, neighboring pho restaurants. Bao and Linh have resolved never to befriend each other, for fear of pushing too far and bringing on undue heartbreak. But when a chance encounter brings Linh and Bao closer, sparks fly . . .
Another month is almost here, which can only mean one thing, more new releases to add to my TBR! I am always adding new books to my TBR because I love finding new stories that are out there in the world. New stories mean new adventures and what more can you want!
lew through reading Afterlove by Tanya Byrne and gave it a very well deserved 5 stars. It is a book that I would highly recommend to everyone because it is well worth a read. I wanted to do what I normally do with a book that I enjoy, which is pick a quote from it and get designing. So, that is exactly what I did.
I love a good book tag and I feel like it has been a long time since I did one. I stumbled across this one the other day and though it looked like a lot of fun. The premise is, you select a book for each letter of the alphabet. You don't have to own or read the books either. Articles that start the title like the, A, An, etc. do not count. Here is the bookish alphabet tag.
Just like most readers, my TBR does not end. Some books on my TBR have reading priority over others though and are ones I'd like to read very soon. I thought I'd share 5 of the books that I would like to read soon. Here they are!
I finished reading Love from A to Z by S.K Ali a few days ago and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a book that has been on my TBR for such a long time, so it felt good to finally read it. I wanted to do what I normally do with a book that… Continue reading Love from A to Z by S.K. Ali – Quote
Gabrielle is a climate-change activist who shoots to fame when she becomes the first teenager to display a supernatural ability to grow plants from her skin. Hester is the millionaire daughter of an oil tycoon and the face of the family business. Theo comes from a long line of fishermen, but his parents are struggling to make ends meet. On the face of it, the three have very little in common. Yet when Hester and Theo join Gabrielle and legions of other teenagers around the world in developing the strange new “Greenfingers” power, it becomes clear that to use their ability for good, they’ll need to learn to work together. But in a time of widespread corruption and greed, there are plenty of profit-hungry organizations who want to use the Greenfingers for their own ends. And not everyone would like to see the Earth saved…
I am always very nosy when it comes to seeing what other people are currently reading, listening to and watching. So, to help with my own nosiness, I have started writing a monthly post in which I share what I am reading, listening to and watching. Here is this month's currently I'm...
Another month, means another book haul! Last months haul was small, this months haul is quite a bit bigger. Throughout August I hauled 14 books even though I wanted to buy an awful lot more. This haul consists of a few pre-orders, some presents for myself and some gifted to me by publishers. Here is my August book haul!
August has been a non-stop busy month for me and it has flown by. I've been to the cinema, had a few days out, a quick weekend away and started some more decoration on my house. Here is what happened in August!
