Book Review: The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo

Title: The Poet X Author: Elizabeth Acevedo Publisher: Egmont (1 May 2018) Genre: YA/Literature & Fiction Price: Rs. 359 on Amazon Pages: 320 As an avid reader, it is very important for me to start the year with the right book. Books and stories affect my mind and I wanted the year to start off with a healthy, positive book. I do a lot of research on the book that I would read first at the start of a new year. This year was no less. I go through ample book reviews, check out award winning books, see what my fellow bloggers and bookstagrammers have recommended and then come to a decision about the book. Last year I went with ' The Dutch House ' and this year I chose to go with 'The Poet X'. The Poet X is a much loved book and I had never read anything by the author so far. Shalini has been praising this book and as someone who trusts her reviews and choices, I knew I was making the right choice.

Action Replay + Gratitude List: January 2021

Image Source We're done with January too? Wow, where are the days going? I still remember the first day of the year and now we're already on the second day of the second month of the year. But, you know what, January has been a wonderful month and no matter how fast it whooshed by, it made a huge impact. January helped me get a reality check and sort out and align my priorities better. As a person with multiple passions and interests, I usually have more than what I can handle in my kitty. I try to do too many things and while I usually succeed in getting them done, it does take a toll on me. It also adds to the guilt incase something gets missed out. Now, I'm more realistic about what I should do and how much I can handle. This has simplified my life to a large extent.
