Hello Readers! I hope you all are safe and staying at home. I’m getting tired of this lock down mostly because there is no particular routine now. I did enjoy few days sleeping when I wish and waking up late and doing daily work when I feel like but now I’m sick of it. It’s bringing the worst out of my husband. I so wish he is back at his 10 to 7 job. I read 2 books last week and now that I don’t have any deadlines I I’m mood of reading and it’s so much fun.

What I read last week-

Autoboyography by Christina Lauren

28919058. sy475

I loved this book. I’m glad there were few unpredictable moments, it didn’t end where I thought it will, and had more obstacles and self-doubts. It was best romance I read so far. I wish I had paperback rather than reading it online.

Those Who Came Before by J.H. Moncrieff


This was good horror story. That Wendigo did gave me creep. If you like those horrible, ugly mythical creatures that make you want to puke, and story around that thing, you will love this.

Currently reading-

I’m not reading anything yet but I’ll start this after I’m done writing review of Those Who Came Before.

The Twin by Natasha Preston

49903052. sx318 sy475

In this psychological thriller, Emmy finds out that her twin sister, Iris, is trying to push her out of her own life—and might be responsible for their mother’s death.

After their parents divorced, 10-year-old twins Emmy and Iris were split up—Emmy lived with Dad, Iris with Mom. Now, after a tragic accident takes their mom’s life, the twins are reunited and Iris moves in with Emmy and their dad. Devastated over Mom’s death, Iris spends the first few weeks in almost total silence—the only person she will speak to is Emmy. Iris feels her life is over and she doesn’t know what to do. Emmy promises her twin that she can share her life now. After all, they’re sisters. Twins.

It’s a promise that Iris takes seriously. And before long, Emmy’s friends, her life at school, and her boyfriend, Tyler, fall under Iris’s spell. Slowly, Emmy realizes she’s being pushed out of her own life. But she’s just being paranoid, right? And Mom’s accident was . . . just an accident. Right? It’s not like she—or Dad—or Tyler—are in any danger. . . 

I thought I will read this last weekend but then I was in mood for horror and I was seeing that Those Who Came Before on shelf for long time.

The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon

40275288. sy475

A world divided. A queendom without an heir. An ancient enemy awakens.

The House of Berethnet has ruled Inys for a thousand years. Still unwed, Queen Sabran the Ninth must conceive a daughter to protect her realm from destruction – but assassins are getting closer to her door.

Ead Duryan is an outsider at court. Though she has risen to the position of lady-in-waiting, she is loyal to a hidden society of mages. Ead keeps a watchful eye on Sabran, secretly protecting her with forbidden magic.

Across the dark sea, Tané has trained to be a dragonrider since she was a child, but is forced to make a choice that could see her life unravel.

Meanwhile, the divided East and West refuse to parley, and forces of chaos are rising from their sleep.

I’m finally in mood for this big book but I’m going to read it simultaneously. It will take longer that way but I have no other option. My daughter doesn’t let me sit at one place for more than 15 minutes and I cannot hold this book in one hand and my daughter with other. Plan is when she is having nap in noon/evening, I’ll read this and rest of the time I’ll read other books in my kindle.

Let’s discuss!
