Midnights and my top 3 favourites

I posted this 5 days late. I am disappointed in myself

Anywayssssssssssssssssssssss

YES. THE BIGGEST ALBUM OF THE YEAR IS HERE. AND IT IS AMAZING.

Midnights is just so *chefs kiss*. Each and every song is a masterpiece. She made even dark and deep songs into catchy tunes. She truly is a mastermind

Midnights is the tenth studio album by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift, set for release on October 21, 2022, via Republic Records. It marks her first body of new work since her ninth studio album, Evermore (2020). Swift announced the album at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards on August 28, 2022

So my first favourite song-

  1. Anti Hero

Cmon. This HAD TO COME. This song deals with how people hate themselves. They look at themselves in a negative way. The way Taylor portrayed that in her lyrics and music video is just…WOW

2. Lavender Haze

WHY IS THIS SONG SO GOOOOOOOOOOOOOD. This song is just another level of amazing. The tune and voice mix and the lyrics and AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH.

3. Snow on the beach

TAYLOR AND LANA TOGETHER. IT IS HEAVENLY. plus the songs start giving me a Christmas vibe. But still, the song is beautiful and calming

Extras-

Maroon

Bejewelled

Thanks,

Kaashvi

Characters that took my heart away…

Hello everyone!

I have another book-related post today which (you may have guessed by the title) revolves around certain characters I adore.

Luna Lovegood

This girl. She has made me love her. She has had such hardships. She was constantly bullied for being …well, herself. But she stood strong, she is the most sweetest and calmest person ever. I love her

Leo (Mcshizzle) Valdez

How can we not about this extremely dashing and good-natured character? The most down-to-earth and lovely personality. I mean he may be a (7th?) wheel on the Argo 2 BUT HE GOT A GODDESS. CALYPSO IS THE LUCKIEST PERSON ON EARTH. I just adore him

Annabeth Chase

I WOULD DIE FOR THOSE GREY EYES. She is the most determined and strong young woman I know. I worship herrrrrrr. What more can I say about her. I think we all know her well

Rose Quartz/Pink Diamond

A lot of people take her as the bad guy or as selfish. I take her as a mother. She gave up her form so her son could live. Can we take a moment to process that without crying? She is so cute and the sweetest. She gave up A MASSIVE POSITION SUCH AS A DIAMOND to come live with humans. (By the way, this spoiler killed me)

Ice bear

I love Ice bear. Ice bear is too epic. He is a legend

That’s all !

Comment your favorite characters too!

HP characters: As I see them

Hi everyone!

I got an idea from Selina for making book/media characters on character makers from one of her posts.

I used makowka character maker and will be making characters from Harry Potter. I’ll do Percy Jackson next, I think. Anyway, let’s get on with the post!

The Golden Trio:

Harry Potter:

Ron Weasley:

Hermione Granger:

Next, Draco Malfoy:

Then, fuelling my obsession, The (teenage) Marauders:

James Potter

Sirius Black:

Remus Lupin:

Lily Evans:

What fandom characters should I do next? Give your suggestions in the comments!

HELLO I’M BACK I READ A LOT OF NEW BOOKS

Hi everybody!

Sorry for writing after so long!!! I had forgotten that my regular workday schedule could be so busy. I had literally forgotten where the ‘Write’ button was. *embarrassment*

And also, Happy Dussehra to all those who celebrate it!

I managed to devour about a lot of books since exam preparation time, considering I was under strict instructions to focus on studies from my mother.

I read:

Truly Devious (3.5 stars out of 5): I have mixed feelings about this book. When I issued it, my friend, SH, was all “OH MY GOD YOU ISSUED IT I WANT TO READ IT SO BAD IT’S MY FAVOURITE BOOKTUBER’S FAVOURITE BOOK”, so naturally I went in with a lot of expectations. To be honest, this book let me down a bit, because it wasn’t as exciting as my friend had said it would be. I mean, there was a lot of drama, but stevie seemed a bit, idk, hollow? she didn’t have much personality outside mysteries? same for other students at ellingham. they were a bit boring. But at the same time, it had some unexpected twists and turns, which made it better, i guess.

Trials of Apollo and The Burning Maze (4.5 stars out of 5): This book kept me on my toes from start to beginning. One thing that I loved about this book was that Grover played a huge role, and he’s one of my favourite characters in the entire Riordanverse. Also, 🚨*SPOILER ALERT*🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨JASON’S DEATH? I MEAN, I ALREADY KNEW HE WAS GOING TO DIE, BUT THAT DOESN’T MEAN THAT I DIDN’T GET A HARD PUCH IN THE GUT WHEN I READ THE SCENE. and when leo cried, i started crying, which is a big deal for me, because only 4 books have made me cry in my entire reading career till now. (Order of the Phoenix, House of Hades, Blood of Olympus, and Burning Maze). *SPOILER OVER* This book brought me both sorrow and joy.

Aru Shah and the End of Time (4 stars out of 5): Speaking as somebody who’s grown up hearing stories from Hindu mythology, this book was a cool twist to all the demons and the gods and the beings I’ve heard of. It has its own plot twists that I couldn’t have seen coming. One thing about this book, though, was that maybe it would have left somebody who’s unfamiliar with Hindu myths feeling a bit confused.

Camp Half-Blood Confidential (5 stars out of 5): NICO SINGS IN THIS BOOK. DO I NEED TO EXPLAIN MYSELF FURTHER AS TO WHY I GAVE IT FIVE STARS? Also it basically made me revise all of Camp Half-Blood. So that’s cool as well. To be honest, I got so much nostalgia reading this book. BUT THE HIGHLIGHT IS NICO SINGING.

Magnus Chase and the Hammer of Thor (5 stars out of 5): I wanted to read this book so bad, because of Alex Fierro. Needless to say, it met my expectations. The plot in itself was so awesome that it kept me hooked on from start to beginning. AND ALSO I’M IN LOVE WITH ALEX. BEST. CHARACTER. EVER. 🚨SPOILER ALERT 🚨 LOKI GETTING FREED FROM HIS CHAINS. WHAT THE HELL? DID NOT SEE THAT COMING. SAMIRAH NEARLY GETTING MARRIED? WHAT. WE ALL KNEW HEARTH’S FAMILY WAS CRAP, BUT THEM BEING THIS BAD? NO. WHY. WHAT IS GOING ON YOUR MIND, RICK.🚨SPOILER ALERT OVER 🚨

Magnus Chase and the Ship of the Dead (4.5 stars out of 5): I expected more, but it didn’t let me down. PERCY HAS A CAMEO. DO I NEED TO JUSTIFY MYSELF FOR GIVING IT 4.5? Also, Magnus’ sarcasm in this book is at an all time high. I live for Magnus’ sarcasm. This book also gives closure on Hearthstone’s family, which is so bittersweet when you take a look at what Mr. Alderman has become. And we get to know about the mystery that is Mallory Keen. You wouldn’t see it coming. AND ALEX AND MAGNUS. OH MY GOD. *faints* This book is a lot more than what I’ve written, but these are my favourite parts.

I started reading Catching Fire but there were 8 PAGES MISSING FROM THE BOOK. 8 FULL PAGES. And I’m currently reading Daughter of Empire: Life as a Mountbatten. I know, it sounds boring, but it isn’t. I’ll be reading the Song of Achilles next and then Atlantis Rising. I’m so excited ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Well, that’s it! It was great writing after such a long time.

Bye! If you’ve read some great books, let me know their names in the comments. PLEASE. I AM DYING FOR NEW BOOKS.

I went to Ranthambhore with my friends!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello everyone

Sorry for the little break I took. I was on a 3-day trip to a very famous animal reserve in Rajasthan called Ranthambhore with my friends. (school trip, no parents)

It was absolutely fantastic. I went to a fort that was magnificent. I went to a Mandir (Temple) and got blessings from the Pundit (priest). and finally, I WENT TO AN ANIMAL SAFARI. So the animal reserve safari is a safari through a forest and this reserve is famous for tigers (but they are seriously rare to spot so…). So I saw around a million peacocks, a crocodile, a pair of owls, some 10 deers and A TIGER. YES, I SPOTTED A FEMALE TIGRESS NAMED ARROWHEAD. IT WAS SUCH A BIG MOMENT BECAUSE THEY ARE VERY RARE PLUS I WAS IN THE ONLY JEEP WHICH SPOTTED ONE.

We had a DJ where my friends and I GOT CRAZY. proper pagal (crazy). me and 5 other girls stayed together in a suite in a resort and even went to the pool. every time where we were free we would play Uno/bluff/sing.

The trip from the bus was of 11 hours and all the time songs were playing. We played Punjabi songs, Bhojpuri songs and English songs and danced. Whoever passed by our bus was clearly jealous.

So well that’s a messy but short detail of my weekend.

Oh and here’s a photo of me with my friends. Guess which is me…

so that’s all

bye!
