Babel (Or the Necessity of Violence: An Arcane History of the Oxford Translators’ Revolution) completely blew my mind away.
I read Babel a really long time ago, while I was knee deep in my dark academia phase, and it was utterly phenomenal. There’s no doubt that R.F. Kuang is a masterful storyteller, as clearly exhibited by The Poppy War trilogy ( which you should definitely read if you haven’t yet !!! ) but Babel took a completely different route than what I expected.

I love seeing representation in books.
Now I don’t really talk a lot about my heritage on here, *cough* mainly because I’m not that connected with it *cough* , but I absolutely adore it when I see diverse representation in media. I do indeed have those Asian roots embedded in me (specifically Indian) and growing up I didn’t exactly see myself in the characters I read about.

I’ve decided to crawl out from the heaps of blankets and unfinished books I’m currently drowning in, as it is once again time for my monthly reviving of this abandoned blog

It has indeed been a while since I’ve done a tag, almost eight months to be exact??? BUT THIS IS A TAG I HAVE BEEN WAITING TO DO FOR THE LONGEST TIME.
We’re already halfway through 2022 which is INSANE to believe, and you know what’s even crazier?

But hello, hi, and welcome! I’m currently behind on reading, school, and everything else in general, so I have decided to reminisce about the past few months when my life was NOT A MESS.

Yes as you can see I’ve finally decided to emerge from the depths of the dark dingy corner of my room, abandon the tub of ice cream I was devouring and finally sit down and attempt to write a post once again…
As clearly seen from the month-long breaks between my posts, by now we all know that I’m a huge fan of unannounced hiatuses. But ahem as is the reason for all inconveniences in life, this hiatus was once again caused by school… specifically FINALS (gasp), and did they go well??

We’re one month into 2022 already, isn’t that insane? I never really set any goals for the new year per se , but this time I’ve decided to set a goal for myself to read 100 books, and I’m actually on track woo!! December was a pretty hectic month for me, I went to India after about 2 years and it was so much fun. A lot of travelling and running around but it was a blast nevertheless!
