To Be Brief…

Norse Mythology: A fun little compilation of some of the unfortunate situations the Norse Gods got themselves into. Lots of undesired marriage proposals to Freya, and threats of decapitation to Loki. Alternative title: It’s Always Loki’s Fault. 4/5 stars

“Because,” said Thor, “when something goes wrong, the first thing I always think is, it is Loki’s fault. It saves a lot of time.”

When Dimple Met Rishi: First of all, bonus points for being super cute and refreshing. There are way too few books with Indian or Indian-American protagonists in YA, and I hope to see more in the future. Sadly, though, for whatever reason I lost some interest about halfway through the book, hence the slightly lower rating. 3.75/5 stars

“This is our life. We get to decide the rules. We get to say what goes and what stays, what matters and what doesn’t.”

Eliza and Her Monsters: Contemporary with a cool format that tackles social anxiety (among other things). I really really enjoyed reading this, and it had both lighter and darker moments. Highly recommend. 4.5/5 stars

“Morning is the devil’s time.

At last, it’s once again summer! The best season of the year in my opinion. Family, friends, and no school! :D I hope you all are having a great time with lots of reading and a minimal amount of bugs. :)
