About me

Hi there, welcome! I’m Saima and welcome to this blog!

This is a blog dedicated to all things bookish. As an avid reader, I’ve always enjoyed reading stories and writing reviews to express my thoughts, thus this blog was launched in March 2021 so I can continue to share my opinions here. I look forward to being able to discuss books with you all, particularly diverse contemporaries with lgbtq+ and poc representation since so often these books don’t get enough recognition.

Some of my favourite books are: Red, White, and Royal Blue by Casey Mcquiston, Love from A to Z by S. K. Ali, This is how you lose the time war by Max Gladstone and Amal El-Mohtar, The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller, and Legendborn by Tracey Deonn.
