Where Have You Been?

If you haven’t noticed, I have been MIA for a good 2 months now. Not just here on the blog but on social media as well for the most part. I have good reason to be since my life literally shifted.

If you have been here for a while, you must have read that I was soon starting Uni again. And, that is the biggest reason for me to be away for so long. I left home on the 15th Of August and have only now begun to settle into this new life.

I stayed in the college dorms for about a month and then moved out to an apartment not very far from campus. So, basically all I have been doing these past two months is settling in, then moving to a new place and settling in again. But life’s good now, there are still a few things I need to get done but I have enough free time to blog again. Which leads me to this…

I have said this before, I have plans for the blog to grow. From day one, Fervently Curious has been a blog all about books and I have loved every single moment of talking about the best thing in the world. Why the sudden change you may ask? There is nothing sudden about it since my heart was always set on branching out and writing about more than just books. That’s exactly what I am going to start working on now.Also the fact that I am currently doing my postgraduate in mass communication plays a huge role. I want to use this blog as a platform to grow and learn more as a media student.

You guys have been by my side through this entire journey and I am hoping that you will support me now as well.

One Year Blogiversary

I can’t believe it’s been a year since I started blogging! Well, technically my blogging anniversary is on the 30th of June, but I forgot about it in my excitement of travelling to Dubai.

Rather than talking about the stats of the blog, I would like to THANK each one of you! You guys have been so welcoming, even after I quit blogging for some time.My very first post wasn’t an introduction, but a review of Paper Towns by John Green. When I published that post, I never thought I would make such amazing friends and be a part of such an awesome community. So thank you so much for all the love and support you guys have shown me this year. Every comment, every like, every share means a lot ❤

I sat down and looked back at my old posts and realised how much everything has changed. The way I review books have changed so much over the last year. I have also been a part of Top Ten Tuesday ( I tend to do them on a Wednesday since somehow I always miss Tuesday on the calendar :p). I also have a blogging tips series, though I have only published one post so far, you can read it here.

I have so many more ideas that will slowly start making an appearance on the blog. I really hope you guys will like it. But for now, I want to ask you a few questions, if you wouldn’t mind.

  • What types of posts do you enjoy the most?
  • Would you like to see more posts about India? (Like the one here)
  • Do you like the blogging tips series? Do you have any suggestions and advice for me? 

Let me know in the comments!

THANK YOU so much for all the love and support. I love you guys ❤ 

 

 

 

Discussion: Do You Make Notes While Reading?

First, let me apologise for being MIA for a while. Life has been keeping me busy but I have been reading; A LOT! I am reading Queen Of Shadows currently, and over the weekend, I finished the first three books in the series. The review will be posted soon, I hope. Anyhoo, on to the post.

I have been watching a lot of booktubers and I have noticed how a lot of them have notes about the book they are reviewing. I understand that they need something akin to a summary of what they will be talking about. But that left me wondering if we as book bloggers take notes. I know I don’t, not as of now anyway. But I can imagine how having my thoughts written down can help me write better reviews and even better discussions.

Now, the majority of the books I read are on my Kindle. I know I have the option to highlight and take notes on the device. Yet, I only use that functionality to highlight quotes I like. I am dead set against not touching my physical copies with a pencil or a pen, though! So if I have to mark quotes I usually write them down in a book I have especially for quotes.

I have been researching online and found a lot of articles on how to take notes while reading, but they sound very academic to me and I am not sure if notes while reading a novel would be the same as notes while reading a textbook.

Apart from what I think, you guys tell me. Do you make notes while reading? If yes, then how? Do you have a set format on how you make notes? What are the benefits, apart from the above of making notes?

For those, like me, who don’t take notes while reading. Have you ever wondered if you should? Would you be willing to take notes in the future?

Talk to me, I am beyond confused! 😦

Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms—and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future—and the future of a world cleaved in two.


My Review:

“I was not a pet, not a doll, not an animal.
I was a survivor, and I was strong.
I would not be weak, or helpless again
I would not, could not be broken. Tamed.”

I am diverging from the way I usually review books because there is so much to say and the format is too restricting.

ACOTAR was released quite a while back, but I never read it. Don’t ask me why I don’t really remember. Yet, it was always on my TBR and just three days back, I started reading the book. I am not going to review ACOTAR because, well, I have so much to say about ACOMAF.

Let me just begin by saying HOW AMAZING THIS BOOK IS!

There was so much going on in this book and so much this book made me go through. This book was exquisite in its joy and sorrow. It made me angry, made me cry, made me laugh, made me feel for the characters. Gosh, I am running short on words. The characters go through such development and it’s all so natural, it was amazing to read. The themes in the book were so very strong. Themes other YA books steer clear from yet Maas centered the book AROUND trauma and PTSD and so much more. Anyone who loves to read fantasy should read this book. Heck everyone should read this book!

Plot: 5/5

Characters: 5/5

Pace: 5/5

Overall Rating: 10/5

Have you read the book?

If not, you should!

And once you have, come back and  talk to me, please!

I have so much to say. 😀 


Spoiler filled discussion starts below! Please do not continue reading if you haven’t read both the books. You’ve been warned.
