İnadina Aşk – Turkish Dizi Review

İnadina Aşk
İnadina Aşk

Rating – 4/5

A Turkish romantic comedy starring Can Yaman and Açelya Topaloğlu in the lead roles of Yalın and Defne (respectively), İnadina Aşk catapulted Yaman to fame in 2015. There is a reason why Yaman became famous after this show.

It’s a light-hearted show (which romantic comedy isn’t?) with dollops of rib-tickling humor and (no guesses!) sweet romance. Yaman, as the stubborn, spoilt, rich guy with a heart of gold and Topaloğlu, as the sweet, sassy, smart, honest and rich girl who chatters incessantly, do full justice to their roles.

Beneath London’s Fog by Iona Caldwell – Cover Reveal

Blurb: 

“I want it known before this tale begins, I am not the hero but the villain.”

Jonathan is the immortal master of Raven Hollow Manor – a decrepit mansion riddled with superstition, murder and restless ghosts. Beneath it lies a restless malice.

Its previous owner driven mad, violently kills his guests with a rusted ax, creating the perfect venue for Jonathan to seclude himself in a prison of his own device.

When the streets of London begin to run red with blood; the bodies exhibiting disturbing signs and baffling wounds, the identity of the killer remains elusive to police.

The bodies are just the beginning of Jonathan’s troubles. A mysterious letter accusing Jonathan of committing the murders appear, raising suspicion in the police. Hidden beneath the mangled bodies, Jonathan soon realizes he is being forced to face demons he thought died in a forlorn past he attempted to escape. 

One thing Jonathan knows for certain: He must deal with the demons of his past if he is to survive his future. Not only him but those he has come to love as well.

Now hold your breath for the cover.

4 Simple Grammar Tips To Improve Your Blog Posts

Hola! Book nerds. 🙂 I am back after the hiatus. My first post-hiatus review will be published tomorrow. Till then, enjoy this post.

Debjani's Thoughts

As a blogger, you are responsible for respecting your readers’ time. Grammar is an essential tool in any writer’s toolbox, and bloggers/content creators are essentially writers. To hold your readers’ attention, it is important that your posts have good grammar. It is impossible to collate the entire world of grammar in a single post. So, here I have tried pointing out the key mistakes that (in my humble opinion) most of us commit.

Spelling mistakes

You
really wouldn’t want to start your blog post like this – “I’m so enthousiastic
to review this [Insert book name]. The first book in this siries was officially
my favorite book of 2018.”

Notice
the errors- enthousiastic instead of enthusiastic.
Siries instead of series.

Take
another example – “I present to you my monthly warp-up”. See the error- warp
instead of wrap.

Blog Hiatus

This is going to be a small post to announce that I have decided to take a blog hiatus. Due to increasing workload, I am unable to devote time to blogging, as of now. Also, for the past few weeks (due to increase in workload), I have read only a few books. For a blog focused primarily on book reviews, this means nothing to write about. ☹ Further, I am increasingly finding it difficult to do networking, and blog-hopping due to paucity of time.

Once pressure on work front decreases to some extent, following which I can again start reading books, I will be back. Hopefully, this will be a short hiatus for a month.
