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!!

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 💫
