T5W- Hold On, It Gets Better

Top 5 wednesday

Top Five Wednesday is a meme hosted by youtuber Lainey. Check out the Goodreads group here.

You all know that famous old saying right? Don’t judge a book by its movie… There is another lesser known one – Don’t judge a series by its first installment.

I’m sure all of us have a favourite series, which is amazing except for one tiny flaw – the first book is not that good. So, many abandon it which kind of breaks your heart. You may recommend it to your friends who may just don’t see what the big deal is.

But it is a big deal! Sometimes the characters, the world building and adventure develops only in subsequent books. Sometimes the best book is like fifth in the series! And all you want for them is to read the whole series so you can fangirl together.

Design K

For this Top 5 Wednesday, I’ll be listing out 5 series I think you should not give up on,  even if you didn’t like the first installment.

I know most of these are quite popular but I find that people give up on hyped series easily if it doesn’t meet their expectations (which is usually very high). The thing is it takes more than one book for the magic to happen. Do check out Beth’s interesting discussion on managing expectations for hyped books over here.

Fierce Fangirl Friday: The 13th Doctor

Fierce Fangirl Friday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Jackie@ Too Much of a Book Nerd. Here we have an opportunity to fangirl about anything! “Whether it be a book, TV show, music, celebrities, your pet, the universe, finding your soulmate or just a recent meal that you’ve had “(Read more here).

In the past few months, I have become a massive Doctor Who fan ( New Who).

I remember watching the first episode and getting a bit creeped out.  I thought Doctor Who was a sophisticated science fiction show ( ha ha ha!). Seriously it was such a weird episode. If you plan on watching Doctor Who, please don’t judge the series on the first episode (it gets so much better).

So it wasn’t love at first sight. It took a few episodes to fall in love with it- the Doctor, Rose and the blue box so much bigger on the inside.

Review: Spiderman Homecoming


Disclaimer : I only became a fan of Marvel (MCU actually) a year ago (hardly a year). I haven’t read the comics (I don’t know where to start). So this review is by an amateur. Please take this with a grain of salt.

” Can’t you just be a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man?”

Homecoming was entertaining. Not a groundbreaking movie but still fun and enjoyable. I was fully engrossed throughout the film.

Let me start by saying how perfect Tom Holland is for the role.

And… I know there were a lot of discussion about Tony Stark’s role in the film. But I assure you it’s a very minimal role. It is still a Spiderman movie.

Now, I don’t know if Homecoming is the greatest Spiderman movie. The one I’ve seen before is The Amazing Spiderman duolgy (the one with Andrew Garfield). Homecoming is so SO much better.

Hello Again… 

So…

Um…

It’s been so long since I wrote a post!

I don’t know if you remember, I used to blog here until about a year ago.

I was on a hiatus as I had to concentrate on my studies( my dad’s words not mine). I haven’t blogged or read any books in a year.

Okay, I did read a few books. But who can survive on a few books? A few books? *snorts* It was really awful guys. I could feel reality seeping back in, whispering about college and career and what not. It was awful. I do not recommend it.
