That’s what he said Thursday – November 9 special

This is a meme hosted by And we participate by posting a favorite line from our book boyfriend to his heroine.


And again I have a Colleen Hoover book that would be perfect for this.


I would never let anyone else borrow my heart if I know there’s a chance in hell you might want it back.

I think about you every second of every day and I don’t know how to get over you,” she says.
“Don’t,” I beg her. “Please don’t get over me.

You left with my soul in your fists and my heart in your teeth, and I don’t want either of them back.” ~Ben

Why do you look like you’re in pain?” she asks.
“Because keeping my mouth off you hurts like hell.

And THAT is Ben (Sweet and funny) to Fallon.
These quotes better make you want to read that book because this is as close as I am getting to writing a review. Because when I love a book like I love this one I want to keep my opinions to myself because these pages feel just too personal.

Thursday Quotables 5th November 2015

Welcome back to Thursday Quotables! This weekly feature is the place to highlight a great quote, line, or passage discovered during your reading each week.  It is a meme hosted by Bookshelf fantasies.


I can quote Colleen Hoover a thousand times and say that she IS MY FAVORITE AUTHOR but it will never be enough. So here’s more…

“If I were a carpenter, I would build you a window to my soul. But I would leave that window shut and locked, so that every time you tried to look through it all you would see is your own reflection. You would see that my soul is a reflection of you.”

“I love being with yo so bad
When we aren’t together, I miss you so bad
One of these days I’m going to marry you so bad
and it’ll be

“Well, you would realize…
Like i eventually realized…
That the good things about her?
All the beautiful?
It’s not real.
It’s fake.
So you keep your ocean,
I’ll take the lake.”
― Colleen Hoover, Point of Retreat

Dewey’s 24 hour Readathon: Let the fun begin!

Hey Guys! I already told you that I was going to participate in Dewey’s 24-hour Readathon. And guess what, it starts today! You’ll be thinking if it’s a Readathon what am I doing here? 

It’s because where I am, the readathon doesn’t start till evening: 5pm. So I have a lot of free time on my hands to just post and relax and get ready! So I’ve already told you guys that I read really fast so I’ve picked a lot of books that I’d like to read. Also I chose even more books as substitute if I don’t like a particular book and want to abandon it.

       My 24 Hour TBR

1. Slammed and Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover

It is really not a shock that Colleen Hoover would be at the top. I really want to finish these two books and then maybe I’ll finish the third one too. But that’s not a priority. Continue reading

A-Z reading Challenge

Alex Raphael tagged me to do this amazing challenge and I could not let it go! So here I am with another tag after a long time I think. I just don’t get tagged very often. And I love tags.

So BLOGGERS EVERYWHERE,  if you have an interesting tag, you can tag me. 😀

Author you’ve read the most books from:

If I could choose Cassandra Clare,  I would because I’ve practically read all her books.  But still L J Smith tops this.
Because combining The Vampire diaries and The Nightworld series,  there are more books than Cassie has written.  Not including the novellas obviously.

Best Sequel Ever:

Heir of Fire by Sarah J Mass.


Currently Reading :


Finally I’m reading this.  😀

Drink of Choice While Reading:
I don’t usually drink anything.  But I like my occasional coffee.


E-reader or Physical Book:
I prefer Physical books obviously. But since there aren’t many bookshops near my house. And I can’t usually find the books of my choice around here,  I just read the ebooks.

Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated in High School:
Park from Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell.  Yes please.  He loves music and is a comic nerd.  Cute Asian Guy! 😄
Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:


I was about to give up on this one.  And then the story startes getting interesting and BAM! The ending.  I’m glad I gave it a chance because it blew me away.

Hidden Gem Book:


I never thought I’d like this book.  I mean look at the title and the cover.  It doesn’t seem like it would be good. But once I read it..  Oh I fell in love with it. This is one of those books that you just hold close to your heart, close your eyes and breath for a while because it is just so overwhelming.

Important Moment in Your Reading Life:
The first time I cried while reading a book. In that moment, I realized that a book is much more than a book.  Ans the book was A Thousand splendid suns by the way.

Just Finished:


Zombie contemporary.  You gotta read this one!

Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:
I don’t really read non-fiction. Autobiographies,  memoirs,  nah not really my type.

Longest Book You’ve Read:
A feast for crows by George R R Martin. It has 1060 pages.

Major Book Hangover Because of:
Um… most of the books. Because I usually read at night and won’t sleep until the book is finished but The Infernal devices and Harry Potter series definitely kept me awake for long.

Number of Bookcases You Own:
Just one big shelf of actual physical books. I just read ebooks otherwise.

One Book You Have Read Multiple Times
The Fault in our stars by John Green


Preferred Place to Read:
My comfy bed.


Quotes that Inspires You/Gives You All The Feels From a Book You’ve Read:


Reading Regret:
I regret not starting to read (as a hobby) from an early age.  I just started reading about 2 years ago.

Series You Started and Need to Finish (all books are out in series):


I still haven’t finished the last book yet.

Three of Your All-Time Favorite Books:
This one is hard.  But I’ll go with the ones I haven’t already mentioned in the post.
The book thief by Markus Zusak.
Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
Thirteen reasons why by Jay Asher

Unapologetic Fangirl for:
I have to choose one? Because I can’t. There are so many authors I love.
J K Rowling! Cassandra Clare! Richelle Mead! Colleen Hoover! Jandy Nelson.  I’m a huge fangirl.

Very Excited for this Release more than the Others:



Worst Bookish Habits:
Once I’ve read the book,  I forget the names of characters quite often. Worst habit of mine.

X Marks the Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:


A friend gave me this as a gift.  🙂

Your Latest Book Purchase:


Zzz-Snatcher Book (last book that kept you up WAY late):
