Hello! My name is Saima and I’m super excited to announce my new blog @storieswithsaima. This is something I’ve been contemplating on making for a while, as someone who has always enjoyed reading and has way too much to say about the books I read.

I started writing reviews on goodreads early last year when I got back into reading, and it has honestly been so cathartic and fun to be able to talk about the books I read, especially the novels that I feel are underrated and don’t get enough recognition or love. It’s been so enjoyable being able to discuss these thoughts with friends – and now I’m so thrilled to share these ramblings and reviews here with you! I hope that through this I can possibly make some more bookish friends and hear about more books too. I plan to write and post book/arc reviews here, alongside some book wrap-ups and maybe talk about anticipated releases too. I hope that I can share my love for the books I read or plan to read, and help promote some reads that others may not know about.

Some of my favourite books include Love from A to Z, The Atlas Six, Legendorn, The Song of Achilles, I’ll Give You the Sun. I’m mostly into contemporary novels, but I also really love mythological retellings and urban fantasies. If you know any books I would enjoy then please let me know :^)

That’s all for now – thank you all for visiting my blog! I look forward to posting more in the future. I hope you enjoy your stay!!

  2. “Cathartic and fun to be able to talk about the books” totally agree. And chaotic too. 😂 Which is what I love most about it. So excited for your blog! I’m always down for recommendations not a lot of people know about. Also I’m happy that I’ve actually read three of your favorite books (I have to read… the contemporary ones you mentioned… but I’ll Give You the Sun sounds really good 👀) and I may have a suggestion if you like TA6… but maybe I should finish reading it first. Currently reading it, and it’s been so good so far!

    Can’t wait to see more from you. 🙂
