Today is my turn on the bookstagram tour for 10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT PINKY by @sandhyamenonbooks. I absolutely loved this summer-romance book and gave it 5 stars.⁠ πŸ¦‹β  Pinky is a social-justice warrior rebelling against her conservative parents whilst Samir is an organised and tight-laced student with an overprotective mother. To win her mum's approval, Pinky suggests that she and Samir fake date and so Samir spends his summer at Pinky's lake house. That's right – the romance gods have given us the fake dating trope as well as enemies-to-lovers.⁠ πŸ¦‹β  Whilst Pinky and Samir are two very different people, they share the same core values, and often challenge each other to become better, blossoming over their summer together.⁠ πŸ¦‹β  The writing style had a maturity and confidence to it and I think this is, objectively, Sandhya's best work yet. I can't wait to read whatever she writes next as I'm sure she'll somehow surpass herself yet again. 10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT PINKY is the perfect book for summer, featuring two of my favourite tropes, a host of unforgettable characters, and a dramatic possum.⁠ πŸ¦‹β  #bookstagram #books #booklover #bookworm #bookaddict #igreads #bibliophile #bookstagramfeature #bookishfeatures #10thingsihateaboutpinky #sandhyamenon #dimpleverse #sandhyassweethearts #10TIHAPbookstagramtour

Do you like bookish candles?⁠ πŸ•―β  I love bookish candles but rarely burn them due to migraines. I'm hoping my new order from @orbitingpluto.co will include a scent that doesn't trigger a migraine though. I have my fingers crossed for the Achilles & Patroclus one as the scent seems more subtle than the others.⁠ πŸ•―β  Achilles & Patroclus (THE SONG OF ACHILLES) – dark velvet, amber, tragedy⁠ Alex & Henry (RED, WHITE & ROYAL BLUE) – cherry blossoms, plum⁠ November Sea (THE SCORPIO RACES) – driftwood, fireside, sea salt⁠ πŸ•―β  #bookstagram #books #booklover #bookworm #bookaddict #igreads #bibliophile #bookstagramfeature #bookishfeatures #bookishcandle #achillesandpatroclus #alex&henry #rwrb #novembersea #thescorpioraces

{AD|gifted} What's your favourite book cover?⁠ πŸ‘‘β  I love the hidden lady design in the upcoming UK cover of RAYBEARER by @jordanifueko due to be released next month. This was a richly-detailed, Nigerian-inspired fantasy with a gripping plot and fantastic characters. The world-building was some of the best I've ever read and it deserves all the praise. Please preorder a copy of this incredible book, if you can.⁠ πŸ‘‘β  Thank you to the wonderful @hotkeybooksya for my complimentary copy.⁠ ⁠ πŸ‘‘β  #bookstagram #books #booklover #bookworm #bookaddict #igreads #bibliophile #bookstagramfeature #bookishfeatures #raybearer #jordanifueko #supportblackauthors

{AD|gifted} Who's a new author you've discovered this year?⁠ 🍹⁠ THE BOY IN THE RED DRESS by @kristinlwrites should definitely be on your radar thanks to the pure escapism it offers. Set in a New Orleans drag club during Prohibition, it follows the gutsy Millie as she tries to solve a murder to save her best friend. With a diverse cast, evocative setting, and a twisty plot, THE BOY IN THE RED DRESS is a must-read.⁠ 🍹⁠ Thank you to @vikingbooks for my complimentary finished copy.⁠ 🍹⁠ #bookstagram #books #booklover #bookworm #bookaddict #igreads #bibliophile #bookstagramfeature #bookishfeatures #theboyinthereddress #kristinlambert
