Magical Monday #19

Hello everyone! I’m sorry that I have not posted for the past few days, but I have been super busy ( now that I think about it, that’s not a good excuse) the past few days.

But now, I have time to post and since I missed Magical Monday yesterday, why not do it on Tuesday… again? 😝

Today’s book will be…

The Diamond of Drury Lane!

Now, I really love this book because (a) It’s set in London, and I love London and (b) the heroine is a girl and GIRL POWER.

It’s not set in modern day London, it’s set in 1790, and the heroine is Catherine “Cat” Royal, she lives in the Theatre Royal, hence her last name. She’s an orphan, and if it wasn’t for Mr Sheridan, the owner, she would had froze to death on the sidewalk.

After a disastrous play at the theatre, Cat followed Mr Sheridan and overheard his conversation with Marchmont about a diamond hidden in the theatre.

She befriends a new violinist at the theatre, a former African slave, Pedro. On the night of another play, she meets the Duke of Avon, and his children Lord Francis and Lady Elizabeth. Pedro arranges a meeting with them, showcasing Cat’s writing and his musical talents.

Cat brings Lord Francis and Pedro to Syd’s boxing match, also known as the ‘Bow Street Butcher’, mainly because he’s a butcher at the market.

And when a slip of the tongue reveals the secret of the diamond to Pedro, will he keep the secret? Or will he try to find the diamond, and pawn it?


The diamond will surprise you, believe me!

Thanks for reading,

Magical Monday #18

Hello everyone! I am back with Magical Monday, and I know that some of you are angry at me (particularly the bookworms) for not doing Magical Monday last week. But I hope that all of you will forgive me but I was really busy last week. ( thanks for forgiving me, if you choose to) Oh, and by the way, I made another cover image, ( think that’s what’s it’s called?) featuring my very own books!

Today’s book will be….

School for Good and Evil!

This book is about Sophie and Agatha, two different girls different in every possible way, but somehow, they’re best friends. The fourth book is coming out on nineteenth September, so I’m marking my calendar for that date. I’ve searched every website, but somehow, I can’t pre-order the book or pre-order the signed edition because they do not deliver to Singapore, so on that day, or the day after that, I’m hitting my local bookstores to see if they have the stock yet.

But getting back on topic, in their village, every 4 years, the School Master comes to Gavaldon and kidnaps two children, one Good and one evil, both for both schools. The schools train children to become heroes and be the evil lest villain. In fairytales. Of course, you would think that Sophie got into good and Agatha got into Evil right? Well, think again, it’s actually the other way round.

But the thing is, the children kidnapped by the School Master never came back.


What do you think? Would Sophie and Agatha get out of the fairytale world? Or would they remain trapped there, forever?

August Playlist

Hello everyone! I know this is late but here is my August playlist!


1. Its Goin’ Down

Ahh, just call me weird but I just love this song, it’s just so catchy!

2. Symphony by Zara Larsson

‘And now your song, is on repeat, and I’m dancing on, to your heartbeat’ This song is just permanent in my brain!

3. Don’t Let Me Down by Chainsmokers ft. Daya

When I first saw the title of this song, I thought it was Drag Me Down by One Direction. But then I listened to it, and I fell in love with this song.

4. Down by Fifth Harmony

It was actually my friend who introduced me to this song, when I heard her ringtone, which is this song. So me, being the mosey person I am ( 😝), asked what the song was. But back to reality, I really love this song, it’s so catchy and now, I suddenly realize that the last two songs. (This one and number 3, has both the word down in it)

4. No Promises by Cheat Codes ft. Demi Lovato

The only lines I can remember from this song is the chorus, which I just LOVE. In fact, I know I said that I love all of these songs, but these has got to be far my favourite.


Have you ever heard any of these songs before? If so, then what’s your favourite out of these 4?

Magical Monday #17

Hello everyone! I’m sorry that I couldn’t post on Monday, I had exams and had so little time to come online. Well, that’s an excuse for not having any books to review.

(This is not a sponsored post. All thoughts are mine)


Today’s book will be Anne of Avonlea!

Ah, I just love this book so much. It’s charming, funny and Anne’s poetry is just so imaginative!

This is the sequel to Anne of Green Gables, and I love it. (Have I mentioned that I love it? 😜) Anne has now taken over the Avonlea school, and later on, she takes in Davy and Dora, two twins who are very different in personality. And now, Anne has formed the Avonlea Village Improvement Society, along with Diana, Gilbert and Jane.

Later in the book, Anne discovers Echo Lodge, the home of Miss Lavender Lewis, the forty-five year old woman who loves to pretend and lives with her handmaiden, Charlotta the Fourth. Why it’s called Echo Lodge, you’ll find out.


Will the A.V.I.S turn out to be a good thing or a curse? Or maybe a bit of both? Comment your thoughts below!

P.S Don’t take my word for this, there could be other things out there that you do when you’re bored!


• Play around with social media

If you have Pinterest, Instagram or any social media at all,you can just surf on your feed. Sometimes, I like to search up celebrity names to find out if they have an account. 😜

I don’t know about you, but when I’m bored, I like to sing along to my favorite songs.

• Prank call your friends

If you friends doesn’t have your parents’ number, use their phone, call your friend’s number and stay silent when they pick up. I actually got this idea from my own friend, who did that to me once.

• Binge-watch your favourite television series

Sometimes TV can be your best friend. 😅
