We all crave for surprises sometimes. We love surprising others and getting surprises too especially when that surprise is linked to the most beautiful thing on earth; BOOKS. 😍 books are every reader’s life. Imaginations and dreams are woven from books. Ideas and inventions are made from books, not only that but the best series and movies are created by books. It’s beautiful. It’s lovely. It’s bookish. It’s our souls.
Hello and welcome to my blog: Magical BookLush.
Books are my favourite thing on earth. It’s like meth for drug addicts, like shoes for the high class mean girls, like blood for vampires, that’s exactly how books are for me. If you want me to elaborate then, books are what flows in my blood vessels via my veins and arteries in my heart and what comes out is… Romantic novels aka Carbon dioxide. Yes, you heard me right. I hate romance.
It’s not like I hate it. That’s a big word, I could say I dislike it but still, I go back to my statement. I HATE ROMANTIC BOOKS.
See don’t judge me, okay? Everybody has their favourite genre, mine is crime dramas, mysteries, fantasy and the best HORROR😍😍😍 Romance has never been my genre and I don’t think it will ever be. I know I am pushing myself out of my comfort zone but romance is a whole lot away from my comfort because I don’t watch romantic movies, I don’t like romantic shit, and I have never been anywhere near the romance zone. Nowhere near that disastrous stuff.
I have never believed in cushy mushy love stories and hate the idea of dying for someone but that might be because I have never fallen in love with anyone. I believe in love but don’t believe in dying for it. I believe in fighting for it and ending up either winning it or losing it but not dying for it. I know this may sound stupid but I have been through some shit in life that made me a fighter instead of a girl who sobs for love. I believe in one true love and mind me telling you this, I am still waiting for him and will always wait for him until of course, I find him.
One life and one love sound good to me. Too much detailing done, Now let’s jump to the classical surprise part.
Let’s start, shall we?
I have a spirit haunting me, her name is Nikita, the only spirit after me, forcing me to read love stories and well, she succeeded in doing so. Nikita, you have to reblog this because in a way you did something impossible as anyone of my best friends couldn’t make me read romance. In a way you did. So reblog it to show how inspiring you are although i might end up murdering you after this. Stop dancing. 😒
For the magical December, I will make my Christmas not mysterious, not haunted but this year it will be romantic.
I have a tradition of doing my favourite thing on my favourite month. That means the favourite genre on Christmas. Well, I am breaking that tradition and will enter the new year with romance.🙄 I must tell you I am not very happy about it but well, who knows this might turn out to be a disaster or a delightful experience but whatever it is, I pushed myself to a deadly edge of my comfort zone. Trust me when I say this. I don’t see romantic movies, I frankly hate titanic, sorry!!!! I hate romantic books and I will be reading them. That’s my edge of comfort zone.
So now that I have ranted about my hatred of romantic novels and movies, let’s talk about what I will be reading this December.
Let’s start, people.
This blog might be big because I am adding the summary too. Need to give evidence to madam Nikita. 😒
Printed Books (For 88 Classic Novels Challenge) :
1. Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

When she will not marry him, Heathcliff’s terrible vengeance ruins them all—but still, his and Cathy’s love will not die…

Her courage is tested once again when she arrives at Thornfield Hall, where she has been hired by the brooding, proud Edward Rochester to care for his ward Adèle. Jane finds herself drawn to his troubled yet kind spirit. She falls in love. Hard.
But there is a terrifying secret inside the gloomy, forbidding Thornfield Hall. Is Rochester hiding from Jane? Will Jane be left heartbroken and exiled once again?Taken from Goodreads.
3. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.
When the highly eligible and overtly handsome Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy first arrives in Hertfordshire, Elizabeth Bennet is instantly captivated, but his proud and arrogant manner is at odds with the heated glances he throws her way. Electrifying sexual tension soon leads to an unexpected kiss and Elizabeth s world is turned upside down. Misconceptions ensue and judgements abound but the attraction between the young couple endures. Can Elizabeth overlook social convention and give in to her desires for Darcy or will their Pride and Prejudice tear them apart?”Taken from Goodreads.
4. The Diary of a Young Girl by Anna Frank.
Discovered in the attic in which she spent the last years of her life, Anne Frank’s remarkable diary has become a world classic-a powerful reminder of the horrors of war and an eloquent testament to the human spirit.
In 1942, with the Nazis occupying Holland, a thirteen-year-old Jewish girl and her family fled their home in Amsterdam and went into hiding. For the next two years, until their whereabouts were betrayed to the Gestapo, the Franks and another family lived cloistered in the “Secret Annexe” of an old office building. Cut off from the outside world, they faced hunger, boredom, the constant cruelties of living in confined quarters, and the ever-present threat of discovery and death. In her diary, Anne Frank recorded vivid impressions of her experiences during this period. By turns thoughtful, moving, and surprisingly humorous, her account offers a fascinating commentary on human courage and frailty and a compelling self-portrait of a sensitive and spirited young woman whose promise was tragically cut short.Taken from Goodreads.
The Great Gatsby by Scott Fitzgerald.
The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s third book, stands as the supreme achievement of his career. This exemplary novel of the Jazz Age has been acclaimed by generations of readers. The story is of the fabulously wealthy Jay Gatsby and his new love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan, of lavish parties on Long Island at a time when The New York Times noted “gin was the national drink and sex the national obsession,” it is an exquisitely crafted tale of America in the 1920s.
The Great Gatsby is one of the great classics of twentieth-century literature.
This book is added in the category of December reads. It’s a romantic tragedy. I am liking it up to now let’s see how it turns out to be.
That’s it for today. There will be a SECOND PART SHOWING THE EBOOK STORIES I WILL BE READING ON MY PHONE. Nikita, stop dancing again and start studying.😜😂
I hope you enjoyed seeing me hate one genre, don’t criticize me!! I love books but some genres are just not made for me in my opinion.
Health update: this blog was already half done except adding photos and checking grammar. I am feeling better than before. The best part is I am not on a drip in hospital and am being treated with medicines which seem to be working fine on my body. I haven’t answered comments and might not be doing so for a few more days. I don’t feel too good right now but I will be posting second part soon as I just have to copy-paste summary and attach photos. Please forgive any inconveniences you are facing because of me. I am extremely sorry. I am just not in the shape to even move, you can forget posting and commenting. This blog took me 3 hours to just attach photos with small breaks.
Hope you liked my post. Like, share and follow my blog for more updates on my reading.
