Ikram’s Theory of Bookish Evolution

It’s not so much a theory than it is just an observation. Most of us all learned to read at around 5-6. A select few of us got sucked into the book world and have become bona fide book nerd, but although we may have always loved reading books, our tastes in books range far and wide and as we aged (like a fine wine) our reading preferences changed and evolved. I am here to present one such case study. Today we will all see how my reading tastes have changed through my short but spirited seventeen years.

Overall Thoughts:

I’ve always had this deep rooted prejudices towards non-fiction but my reading tastes have evolved over the years and now I am reading non-fiction of my own volition. I found this book extremely fascinating, this world is so divided on so many issues, and it’s almost impossible to meet someone without your ideologies conflicting so I thought it would be great to educate myself and this book was certainly very informational.Read More »

Spring Equinox Reccomendations

During the Winter Solstice last yer I recommended a bunch of short books for y’all to read since it is the shortest day in the year. Today is the Spring Equinox, where both the night and day are each roughly the same length so in honor of the Equinox today I want to recommend to you some average length books (300-400 pages) that you can easily read in a day if you wished to do so. Read More »

Why Time Travel Scares Me

I’m absolutely terrified of time travel, alternate universe and multiple dimensions. All these things that fall into the realm of theoretical physics I find extremely confusing and just really hard to understand. They make me terrified of their implications, especially in books. That’s not to say I don’t like books that use time travel as a plot device, I love Passenger by Alexandra Bracken, but hearing that the book is about time travel definitely makes me more hesitant to read it.

Author: V.E. Schwab

Release Date: February 21, 2017

Publisher: Tor Books

Page Number: 624 pages

Overall Thoughts:

A Conjuring of Light is hands down the best conclusion to a trilogy I have ever read. It was funny, heartbreaking, and had me on the edge of my seats and biting my nails down to a stub with everything going on. It was GREAT!!! I waited a while to write this review so I could get my thoughts in order but I’m still just speechless with how to describe the undying devotion I have towards this book.

Synopsis:

Witness the fate of beloved heroes – and enemies.

The precarious equilibrium among four Londons has reached its breaking point. Once brimming with the red vivacity of magic, darkness casts a shadow over the Maresh Empire, leaving a space for another London to rise.

WHO WILL CRUMBLE?
Kell – once assumed to be the last surviving Antari – begins to waver under the pressure of competing loyalties. And in the wake of tragedy, can Arnes survive?

WHO WILL RISE?
Lila Bard, once a commonplace – but never common – thief, has survived and flourished through a series of magical trials. But now she must learn to control the magic, before it bleeds her dry. Meanwhile, the disgraced Captain Alucard Emery of the Night Spire collects his crew, attempting a race against time to acquire the impossible.

WHO WILL TAKE CONTROL?
And an ancient enemy returns to claim a crown while a fallen hero tries to save a world in decay
