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 . . .
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.

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!
I love a good book tag so when I found the rapid fire book tag I knew I had to give it a go! Book tags are such a wonderful way of finding out more about a reader, their reading habits and a whole lot more which I enjoy a lot. I believe this tag originated from GirlReading! So, here is the rapid fire book tag!
t. I flew through the book in a matter of sittings and would highly recommend it. I wanted to do what I normally do with a book I enjoy which is pick a quote from it and get designing. So, that is exactly what I did!
hy, quiet Amani has an outwardly picture-perfect family - a father who is a successful TV presenter, a loving mother, and an adorable younger brother - while confident and impulsive.
am always adding new books to my TBR because I love finding new stories that are being released into the world. New stories mean new adventures and what more can you want!
