About 4.5 years ago, I read a book that I’d requested from Netgalley because I’d found the premise to be super interesting. Until this, my experience or even impression of sites like Netgalley hadn’t been great. But this book, called House of Rougeax, turned it around fantastically well, becoming one of my favorite books of 2018.
I was so mesmerized by the writing and the story that I immediately approached the author, Jenny Jaeckel, for an interview. But things happened and I couldn’t publish it here even though Jenny was prompt in sending her answers. I decided to try my luck again and Jenny, being the sweetest person, agreed to do it. A big thank you, Jenny, for this!
Bronte Huskinson is a lady who is sweet and fierce in the way she talks about books, issues, and everything in between that you can’t help but admire her through your mobile screen. Her aesthetic is on point, as they call it these days. Her blog is smart and pleasing to the eye as well as the mind. She plans her content out, at a level that’s nothing short of inspirational. I basically hang on to every word that she has to say.
What do you do when you meet someone who puts your thoughts in their words in a way that you think they know how to read minds from afar? When they are so level-headed and fearless as they talk about issues that it makes you fall in awe of them?
Krutika Puranik, fellow reader, Bookstagrammer, and friend, is one such person.
In March of this year, as part of the Femme March Fest Challenge, I read a total of 8 books that included A Charm of Finches and Mudbound. But also read another book that made me laugh a LOT and made me fall in love with it. This book is called 50 Cups of Coffee: The Woes and Throes of Finding Mr. Right.
An interview with author Aashish Gupta, whose soul-searing book, Demons in my Mind, I read recently. The insights from this interview will be helpful, transcending the barrier of time and being applicable years into the future.
I read Suanne Laqueur’s A Charm of Finches in March this year and was blown away with how beautifully she portrayed emotions and reality. This book is the second in the Venery series, but I felt comfortable reading it because it could even pass off as a standalone book. I wrote a review of the book and posted it on my blog (which you can read here), and to Goodreads. And then I forgot all about it.
