Hey everyone! I feel like it’s been a minute since I’ve updated on here. Life has been super busy between work, vacation and now being sick. On top of trying to get everything together to reopen my candle shop next week!
Anyways, I’ve had a TBR list in my head for a while since I have a few books to read for publishers and Netgalley as well as just a few finished copies I really can’t wait to get to, so I thought I would show you all what they are! Continue reading “My Immediate TBR list!”
The compelling story of a girl’s fight to regain her life and dreams after being forced into indentured servitude.
Life is quiet and ordinary in Amal’s Pakistani village, but she had no complaints, and besides, she’s busy pursuing her dream of becoming a teacher one day. Her dreams are temporarily dashed when–as the eldest daughter–she must stay home from school to take care of her siblings. Amal is upset, but she doesn’t lose hope and finds ways to continue learning. Then the unimaginable happens–after an accidental run-in with the son of her village’s corrupt landlord, Amal must work as his family’s servant to pay off her own family’s debt.
Life at the opulent Khan estate is full of heartbreak and struggle for Amal–especially when she inadvertently makes an enemy of a girl named Nabila. Most troubling, though, is Amal’s growing awareness of the Khans’ nefarious dealings. When it becomes clear just how far they will go to protect their interests, Amal realizes she will have to find a way to work with others if they are ever to exact change in a cruel status quo, and if Amal is ever to achieve her dreams.

I’m pretty sure that all of us have a favorite. Book, movie, song, or anything that makes us feel comforted and right at home. I will say that this is exactly why The Hobbit is one of my favorite books of all time. There’s something so magical and comforting about the Shire and Bilbo’s hobbit hole that makes me forget all my troubles. This is the ONLY book I’ve ever reread in my entire life, and while I have many favorites, this book holds a special place on my shelf (well, multiple copies of this book and the series in general have an entire shelf) Anyways, I thought I’d just come on and tell you how fun this book is!
