Resurrection of a Dead Blog.

I had been pretty sick of my blog design for a while now. Finally it got to the point that I could no longer bear to see my blog in all its girly pinkish glory. Since I have no means to hire myself a blog designer I went to Google Guru to help me out in my dilemma. And I am very thankful to Julie from Fabulous Blogging whose blog post helped me give my blog a new face. While I was at it I also realized that my blog name was a bit boring too and didn't really suit since I haven't had much time to write these days so I came up with this title which is I know very common perfectly describes my situation since I am drooling on all the new books I have purchased in the last four months but haven't had the chance to read. Hopefully I will be back to reading books as soon as my exams are over and reviewing some new books which I received from authors but have been pushing them behind on my shelves !! 
 So what do you think? Does the new design rock or is it kinda okay? I will probably change it in a week or so if not ! Lemme know what you think in the comments !!

Teaser Tuesdays #1


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Mizb @ Should be Reading . Anyone can play along. Just do the following:

  • Grab your Current read.
  • Open to a Random page.
  • Share two { 2} "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page.
  • Be Careful not to include SPOILERS ( Make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away! You don't want to ruin the book for others! )
  • Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers !

My Teaser :

"What do you think, little girl? You were raised human." 
Her lip curled, but it wasn't really a smile.
"Would you kill him? Or play with him awhile first?"

~ Page 107, "Rook, Allie's War, Book One" by J.C. Andrijeski.

Stacking the Shelves { 8 }


 Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews where we book bloggers share what we purchased online or from a local bookstore, received in mail, borrowed from friends or Library, physical copies or ebooks !

 Since I am running out of space to store physical copies at home I am trying to cut down on buying any books this year until I get myself a proper bigger bookshelf ! Which could be a while from now. Thankfully atleast that has restricted my options in buying anymore books than absolutely necessary.

 This week :

Received for Review :
17619404 I signed up for reviewing this book at The Masquerade Crew and was lucky enough to receive a print copy by the author in exchange for an review.

Won :

Goodreads First Reads Winner !! I was so surprised because I never win anything from Goodreads ! I am very excited about this one because its based on Indian Mythology and has a very amazing story line! Will be reviewing this as soon as next week !

Purchased :

I haven't yet read Clockwork Prince and hardly remember anything from Clockwork Angel. But what I do remember is I loved Will and Jem and Tessa. So since this one was on a very low price (80% off) I had to get this one ! Thank you Amazon India!

That's all I got this week. What did you get for yourselves this week? What lovely books are decorating your shelves this week? Leave me a link to ur blog or drop in a comment and I will come over to fangirl over your blog.
