Good morning, readers! I am so excited to announce that “When Dimple Met Rishi” by Sandhya Menon is out today in bookstores and online!!!!!

This is the YA contemporary novel that both my sister and I have been anxiously awaiting, and I am beyond excited that it is out today! The story sounds insanely charming (keep scrolling if you want to read the summary), and I started following Sandhya and she seems like the sweetest, most adorable author. Also, she loves Bollywood movies and her newsletter is called “Cupcakes and Tea with Sandhya Menon,” so….that’s like an instant win in my book! (If you are interested in following this author, here is Sandhya’s website.)

Do yourself a favor today and go pick up or order a copy of this beautiful and adorable novel, and enjoys the contemporary FEELS!

Goodreads summary:

“A laugh-out-loud, heartfelt YA romantic comedy, told in alternating perspectives, about two Indian-American teens whose parents have arranged for them to be married.

Dimple Shah has it all figured out. With graduation behind her, she’s more than ready for a break from her family, from Mamma’s inexplicable obsession with her finding the “Ideal Indian Husband.” Ugh. Dimple knows they must respect her principles on some level, though. If they truly believed she needed a husband right now, they wouldn’t have paid for her to attend a summer program for aspiring web developers…right?

Rishi Patel is a hopeless romantic. So when his parents tell him that his future wife will be attending the same summer program as him—wherein he’ll have to woo her—he’s totally on board. Because as silly as it sounds to most people in his life, Rishi wants to be arranged, believes in the power of tradition, stability, and being a part of something much bigger than himself.

The Shahs and Patels didn’t mean to start turning the wheels on this “suggested arrangement” so early in their children’s lives, but when they noticed them both gravitate toward the same summer program, they figured, Why not?

Dimple and Rishi may think they have each other figured out. But when opposites clash, love works hard to prove itself in the most unexpected ways.”

A New Book for You and Me…

You might have been wondering if I still roamed this earth (or blogerverse, depending on how you want to look at it), since it has taken me nearly four months to get back to my blog. *sighs* Well, I got lost to life, work, and college, but I was reading that entire time, and I hope to start writing on this blog again soon.

Although, I am not back writing a review on my blog today, I did want to remind you all that “Blacksouls” by Nicole Castroman came out yesterday, and that you all should read “Blackhearts” as soon as you can so that you can be prepared for Nicole’s latest book. Here’s my review of “Blackhearts” by Nicole Castroman, in case your on the edge about reading it. I am very excited to read “Blacksouls” despite wishing that it was a one novel story, and I am anxious for my copy to come in the mail to see what is going to happen to Anne and Teach!

*waiting for my mail to come*

If you like historical fiction with a twist, I definitely recommend “Blackhearts,” and if that does not tempt you to read Nicole’s books, I also heard that some piracy is about to make an appearance in “Blacksouls”…

Les Petits Bonheurs #30…

Bon anniversaire, mon petit blog!

I woke up this morning to a wordpress notification that I have had my blog for four years now. It is crazy that this little blog started out as a high school assignment for my English class, and then gradually turned into a hobby and passion. I know that my blog is tiny (and a little sparse as of late concerning reviews) in comparison to the other book blogs out there, but I just want to say thank you to everyone who has stuck with this blog since the very beginning, and also to those who joined in on the journey a little more recently. It’s a miracle you’ve survived my book rants and weepy gif posts for this long, and I hope you’ll be willing to stick around for some more reviews, a few more rants, and many more gifs! ;-D

Bonne journée, tout le monde!

Oh, Sweet Freedom!

Soooo, sorry about the radio silence for the last month/month and a half! My classes got the better of me and trying to find extra brainpower to read for fun and write reviews was definitely lacking during this semester, but I am super happy to announce that I made it through finals week! It felt a little bit like this,

but I survived, and I’m so happy to be officially done with this semester!!! I am just so excited that I will finally have time to read and review some books!

Although I have a lot more time and energy to read and review some books, I don’t know how often I will actually post during December and early January. I want to read and review as many books as I can, but I also want to build up enough reviews so that I can begin scheduling them for more consistency during my spring semester, and now I am at an impasse: to post or not to post? I’m still deciding what to do, but in the meantime I have a couple of books that I’ve read and written reviews for, so I will try to post them soon. I really appreciate you all hanging in there with me, and here’s to seeing you guys around (hopefully) soon!

Deliverance by C.J. Redwine: Part 1

 It has definitely been a long time since I’ve written a post on this blog, but I have two good excuses:

1. I haven’t had any good books to read up until this point,

2. and I’m a freshman in college who’s getting used to the mass quantity of writing/studying that is required.

Thankfully, though, after two weeks of preparation, I got ahead enough to start reading C.J. Redwine’s, “Deliverance.” I’ve got one day to finish this puppy before school requires my attention, so I am currently speed reading.

SLEEP IS FOR THE WEAK! As I stated above, I don’t have a lot of spare time to read and watch television, but I found out today that “Once Upon a Time’s” third season just came on to Netflix. Really? All summer long I’ve been waiting for something like this to happen, and then of course everything I want to watch/read is released simultaneously. WHY?!!!!!

I kinda want to forget about school,

heck yeah

but that’s probably not the best idea this early in my college career. But all of THIS is beside the point. The true purpose of this post was to say that I am halfway through “Deliverance,” and that I will (hopefully) finish it today and have a post written by the end of the week. Here’s to miracles happening ’round the world.

have fun with that
