Reading Around the Globe: Prags in India

“I face a lot of issues when it comes to reading books that I want to. Not all the books I want are published in India. The ones which are, sometimes, release in India months after the US publishing dates. Websites like Book Depository & Wordery did not ship to India till last year (and donโ€™t deliver in most South Asian countries still).”


Welcome to Reading Around the Globe, a series here on Reader Voracious Blog geared at fostering a culture of understanding in the bookish community about access to books in various countries around the world. Each post in the series highlights a full interview with one international reader. You can read more about this series and catch up on previous interviews on the master post.

Godsgrave (The Nevernight Chronicle #2) by Jay Kristoff

#Week of Stab 2

Welcome back to the Week of Stabs here on Reader Voracious Blog, gentlefriends! This week, I will be posting reviews for The Nevernight Chronicle in celebration of Darkdawn‘s release yesterday! (Thank my reading slump for this not happening last week as originally intended.)


“You cannot afford to pity those men, Mia. Swimming this deep, your compassion will only serve to drown you. You must be as hard and as sharp as the men you hunt.”

Gentlefriends, I don’t know how I am going to string together words about this one. Have you ever felt trolled by a narrator before? Because The Final Word in Godsgrave was like a punch to the soul. One of the reasons I put off reading this trilogy until now was because I heard the ending was a Time, but I had no idea what was in store for me.

August in Review // The Month of Little Reading

I know that I say this every month, but wow time sure flew by in August! I genuinely think that the older you get the more fleeting time can be, and that is a bummer.

Personal & Patreon Update

August wasn’t a great month for me. A lot of change happened which may work out in the long-run but now just feels scary. I am still on medical leave from work and struggling daily with feelings of self-worth issues, guilt, and shame. It’s going on six months at this point and my recovery is slow.

Book Haul: May, June & July 2019

Welcome to three months worth of book haul, friends! It’s certainly been awhile since I posted a book haul, but that is more a result of my slump, hiatus, and move to self-hosted in the last few months than my not acquiring new books. (I have a problem, friends. See the shame total graphic! Sure it breaks down to $6.96 a book, but STILL.)

As always, I want to reiterate that you do not need to buy and own a lot of books in order to be considered a book blogger or lover. I am quite frugal with everything else so that I can buy books because I love them, but I do not ever want to make you feel bad if you cannot afford to buy books or have poor access where you live.
