Favorite Wattpad Books

While physical books that I can touch and cry tears on are the most perfect things to touch Earth's surface, Wattpad is definitely the best form of e-book. I've currently got 85 books in my private library, and 3 published books myself. I won't deny that half of the books on Wattpad are, no offence, absolute rubbish (my books included), but I have dug out a few that have absolutely blown my mind.  So, ignoring the cliche' grammar-mistake-filled Wattpad gems, let's get straight into the good stuff.
5. High School Hit List
This is a teen fiction (there's gonna be lots of these) book written by the lovely autheras, and it is about exactly what the title says. 
It follows Chloe Whittaker's journey, taking revenge on the 'it' club of her high school for what they did to her best friend. The plot twist drove me mad. It was somehow there in the back of my head, and I did know it all along, but when it actually happened, I was shocked.
Really good twist on th…

White Heron Books

This is a post specially for my Maldivian book-obsessed friends. 
My last book review, A Court Of Thorns And Roses, was bought from an online bookshop that delivers books within Maldives, called White Heron Books.
It's a wonderful website, I highly recommend that you check it out. If you order a book within Male', you get it within the same day with free delivery. The prices are affordable, and although their range of books isn't yet that high, there are some beautiful reads that you should grab before they run out. 
I am especially excited about the packaging. It comes in a beautiful, beige colored wrapping, a tag with your name written in cursive on it, and a free adorable bookmark. Receiving a book from here is like a celebration. 
This isn't a sponsored post. I just really love this website, and thought more people should know about it.

Book Review : A Court Of Thorns And Roses

NO SPOILERS.I have fINALLY gotten around to reading this amazing book. I went in with high hopes after watching YouTube reviews by lovely booktubers such as Sasha Alsberg (abookutopia), and I can honestly say that I was definitely not disappointed. Before going any further, I'd just like to add that the cover is so beautiful in real life. There's a lovely silver shine to the vines that is barely visible in the picture. I love it.

Favorite Books Of 2016!

Yay, here's the happier version of my last post! 2016 surely had many, many downs, but one positive part was the amount of good books I read this year. Here goes, in no order whatsoever : 

1. Gone Girl, Gillian Flynn

This book.  It is so, so, so good.  This is my very first Gillian Flynn book, and I absolutely loved it. People tell me her other two books are better than this, so I can't wait to get my hands on them either.

Least Favorite Books Of 2016

Here comes a bit of a controversial post to celebrate the new year, 2017. I've read many books in 2016, and while I have loved majority of them, it is no lie that there have been a few that I disliked. Greatly.
I mean no offense to the writers, or to the people who love these books. It's great that you enjoy them, and by all means continue doing so. This is just my opinion. I hope you will respect that.

6 Study Help Websites

Now, I know this isn't a blog about studying, its about books and writing, but I believe studying is somewhat involved in both those things. This may be the most serious post I've ever made on this blog, but please bear with me. 
My exams are coming up, so I decided to share my top 6 study websites that I use. 
Keep in mind, I am a GCE O'Level student, so these may be more useful for O'level students, but I think everyone can use these nevertheless. 

1. GCE Study Buddy

This website is probably the most useful one for me. It provides study notes, summarized and made into easy-to-understand formats, with mindmaps, and questions. It may not look the best, and maybe my summary may not sound too interesting, but it has helped me and lots of my friends a lot. There is an incredibly wide range of subjects, and I always find what I'm looking for, no matter how specific.

2. My Study Life

This is a website I'm sure many of you can use. It's like a paper planner, except it …

Wattpad!

My wattpad account may not be as interesting as this blog (not like this blog is that interesting, but hey, a little self promotion never hurt anyone), but it would mean a lot to me if you guys would check it out nevertheless.
Wattpad Account : TheAnonAlien
I've written a few stories, and I'm working on my novel, When The Little One Speaks, so I can use all the support I get. Thank you so much. 
Keep writing :)
