About me

Hey, hi, hello! ~

I’m Ahaana (she/her), a teen book blogger, and reviewer with a never-ending love for books and reading!! As a POC, I’m also a strong supporter of diversity in fiction, love seeing representation in the books I read, and absolutely adore #OwnVoices stories. Apart from diversity, I also believe that morally grey characters, the enemies-to-lovers trope, banter, villain origin stories and books featuring girls with knives are ✨ superior ✨ (check out my favourite tropes in YA fiction). When I’m not reading, you can find me swimming, singing, playing the piano, daydreaming, baking, or doing art!! You can find more about my blog in the section: About the Blog//Disclaimers.

Apart from my book blog, I post reviews rambles, unfiltered screaming and bad jokes on my Goodreads page as well. I also run a writing project/workshop called After the Story with Becky @ Dusts of Magic. You can read my post introducing it over here, and although sign-ups are now closed, you can still check out all the participants WIPs every two months, and help cheer all of them on!!

Quick facts ~

✰ I overuse double exclamation marks (!!) like a lot
✰ I also overuse emojis!! Especially these 4: 🥺😭💖✨
✰ I usually read YA books, though I will occasionally read MG and Adult depending on the subgenre.
✰ I’m a Pisces!
✰ I have an ENFP (Extraverted, Intuitive, Feeling, and Prospecting) Myers-Briggs personality type!
✰ I know four languages – English, Spanish, Hindi and Punjabi!
✰ Procrastination is my middle name, I have zero time-management skills, and I also have the memory of a goldfish :’ )

Testimonials ~

In the blogging community, Ahaana is one of my closest friends! Doing a project together (After the Story), I got to know her a bit better and she is such a nice blogger and has a stunning blog too! She does so many creative and book related posts that it’s always a pleasure reading each and every one of them. And let’s not forget her design senses because I just love how she styled her blog! I was one of many bloggers to witness her blog grow and I am so happy for her! And not to forget to mention: Ahaana is a witty blogger whose blog is just as unique as her! I’m quite happy that she is a part of the blogging community 💫

  7. Nice to meet you, Ahaana!! I’ve been following you on Goodreads for awhile and it’s awesome to see fellow book bloggers (although your blog is much farther along than my tiny new one!!)

    Wait omg I’m an ENFP, too!! I don’t meet a lot of us out there so awesome! And I’m in the process of learning Spanish, that must have taken lots of hard work to become trilingual!! Great job (:
