Hey, hi, hello! ~
I’m Ahaana (she/her), a teen book blogger, and reviewer with a never-ending love for books and reading!! As an Indian, 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, there’s only one bed, the sunshine x grumpy dynamic, banter, villain origin stories and books featuring girls with knives are ✨ superior ✨ When I’m not reading, you can find me competitively swimming, shopping, playing the piano, singing in the shower, eating, or wasting my time.
Apart from my book blog, I post
reviews rambles, unfiltered screaming and bad jokes on my Goodreads page as well. I have a YouTube channel too, where I go beyond books and also post (singing) covers, vlogs, and of course — book related content.

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 💫
