Mirage | Somaiya Daud

Mehso-so

✨It took me so long to read this book.. I couldn't really get in to it.. I can't really do even a decent review of it, because I can't remember half the book. Mostly finished it to satisfy my OCD. #owlcrate 💜

Jen_Reads I attempted to read this one, but couldn‘t get past the first few pages. 8mo
abbsinwonderland @Jen_Reads I don't think you missed too much... I didn't get as interesting as I was hoping it would. It also ended with a pretty poor "cliffhanger", imo. 8mo
Jennick2004 That‘s why I finish books I hate too...can‘t stand to not finish once I‘ve started 🤣 8mo
abbsinwonderland @Jennick2004 glad I'm not the only one! It's a struggle lol 8mo
GlassAsDiamonds @Jennick2004 & @abbsinwonderland - me either!!! 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ The struggle is real! 8mo

Dealing with Disappointment | Elizabeth Crary
post image

✨I am so disappointed with my reading challenge so far. I was six books ahead, now I'm five books behind schedule. 😥 I really wanted to complete it this year, but with this funk idk if I'll be able to..
✨Anyone have any tips for getting out of funks? Months long ones? 💜😖

PacingTheCage Read an old favorite or two. 8mo
TheBookAddict Read something short, but engaging. It will give you the satisfaction of having completed a book in such a little time. Or listen to an audiobook, something fun. I just listened to Juliet Takes A Break and it was great. Or go for a graphic novel. 8mo
sprainedbrain I agree with @TheBookAddict ... try something short or some brain candy. That usually helps me! 8mo
See All 11 Comments
abbsinwonderland @TheBookAddict thank you! I have a few graphic novels (some are the boyfriend's, hopefully he'll let me touch them 😂) but I just can't get into audiobooks. Only one I liked was Pet Sematary cause the narrator was Michael C Hall 8mo
abbsinwonderland @sprainedbrain thank you! Will try that 8mo
sammisho I am kind of in a funk, and also really wanting to meet my goal. I am reading sappy romances. 8mo
abbsinwonderland @sammisho oooh see, that's like the one genre I can't stand. 🙈 Most of them are too Hallmarky for me. 8mo
Reggie Romance, it or horror gets me out every time. Something easy. Romance just because you know it‘s a happy ending every time. 8mo
BarbaraJean Agatha Christie and children‘s/YA usually do it for me! Especially re-reads of favorite books from childhood. Anything that‘s a “comfort read.” 8mo
GlassAsDiamonds Given the time of year, what about some of the “traditional” Christmas ones: The Night Before Christmas, the tagged, etc? They‘re all pretty short and you‘d be able to knock out four or five in a few days? 8mo
Purrfectpages I‘m also behind. The struggle is real! 8mo

✨I haven't been reading much lately.. kind of been in a funk and have had alot going on.. I just finished "Mirage" by Somaiya Daud after starting it two months ago..
✨I'm not a fan of *Pride and Prejudice", but I figured I'd give this a shot since I have enjoyed other "remakes" of it. Anyone have any thoughts of "Pride"? I'd love to hear them. ??

Wordsareweapons I liked it, but I found certain things I bit overdone. I found the main girl to be really really hard to like especially in the beginning, but the overall story was good. 8mo

✨Hiii, it's me 🙃 still in ghost mode, but I found this was company and I thought alot of you would enjoy them, too! Their wax is absolutely AMAZING and gorgeous! (They put glitter and all sorts of pretty things in them) Plus they have some awesome names (Harry's Wand, Spooky Booty, Auntie Flo, F*ck Anxiety)
✨Their Cyber Monday sales start tonight so now would be a great time to try them out!

✨Athena got spayed last Tuesday (we wanted at least one litter, but she attacked me about a month ago and vet told us this was probably for the best) and the kitties have done nothing but love on her and sometimes slightly annoy her. I now have a little family of Greek gods. 💜🤷 (Athena, Nyx, and Perseus)

✨Now that I know he's ours for sure (we weren't sure if he had rabies or not and didn't want to get our hopes up) I'd like everyone to meet Perseus! My boyfriend found him outside of work back in September and surprised me with him. I wasn't sure how Nyx or Athena was gonna do with him, but they all love each other now. He's only maybe 12 weeks old or so, but he's been doing great! Minus a little eye infection we can't seem to get cleared up.💜💜

AlaMich That‘s so great!! He looks like a sweetheart. 😻 And you‘re so lucky they all get along...that‘s always the scariest part of introducing new cats to your home. 9mo
abbsinwonderland @AlaMich Yes! I was so worried about it. Especially because for maybe two weeks Nyx was not happy about it AT ALL. It didn't help that Pers had to be in isolation for a month. 😥 But I'm really glad she finally came around. 9mo

✨I love John Green, but wow... Hank really blew this out of the park. I really, really enjoyed seeing them both on tour, too. Hank (like Kristoff) incorporates alot of the things I enjoy (even if John gave a power point on why Transformers aren't robots....(I kind of agree, but still love them)). And CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW THIS BOOK ENDED?!?!?!?! The sequel can come out any day now. 🙃📚💜

tjwill I‘m psyched to read this! I preordered, but haven‘t got to it yet! 9mo
abbsinwonderland @tjwill it's EXCELLENT! I was gonna pre-order, but glad I didn't and got a signed copy from the tour. 9mo

✨I had an absolutely remarkable (hehe) time in KC seeing Hank and John Green! After watching them on a screen for ten years or so, this was so surreal! They're hilarious and Hank's crowd work is TOP NOTCH! Also, waiting in line for five ish hours to be in the third row was very well worth it. I loved every second of this whole day. 💜💜💜

✨One of my boyfriend's best friends goes to UCLA and he took us to the library there and the science library! It was definitely my favorite part of the trip, I think. The buildings were so beautiful and so, so full of books. Some of them were even as big as I am! They were full of scripts and scrolls. 📚📚💜

✨We had a great time on vacation. I didn't get to read as much as I thought I would. It turns out driving from Nebraska to California is pretty interesting! I also realized I have a very strong dislike of the state of Utah. 😂🤷
✨It was a very nice week in the desert without humidity. I was actually cold there! Now we're back in Nebraska and it's back to reality.🙃😭

Burghbookaddict I have a cousin that lived in LA and the first time I went to visit her all I packed was shorts and t shirts and as soon as the sun went down I was freezing! The movies make it seem like its nice and warm there all the time and that is a lie! 11mo
robinb ❌👎UT, huh??!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣 (no offense to our Utah folks!) (edited) 11mo
abbsinwonderland @BurghBookAddict Well, I expected it to be cold at the beach from the wind (the water was actually really warm which I guess is rare for that beach) but in the desert I was wearing sweats and a hoodie when it was 90 out! It's crazy how much hotter humidity makes it 11mo

abbsinwonderland @robinb Idk why, but that state really made me so mad lol. I was just irritated the whole time driving through it. There isn't anything there! Every road off the interstate is dirt roads and "no services". It was crazy. I felt sooo much better as soon as we crossed into Nevada the way there and Colorado on the way back ? definitely no offense to our Utah Littens. It's just not for me lol 11mo
robinb @abbsinwonderland I felt that way driving through TX on our way to the Grand Canyon. Will it EVER end??!! 😳😂😂😂 (no offense to our TX folks!) 😊 11mo
abbsinwonderland @robinb LOL I wanna go to Texas so bad cause SpaceX has their BFR launch pad there, but my boyfriend doesn't trust me not to try and break in 😂🙈 we won't ever be driving through Utah again though lol. Next time we'll go down through new Mexico and Arizona. We only drove through the tip of AZ, like ten minutes of it but it was beautiful 11mo
robinb @abbsinwonderland I guess I had never really thought about just how huge TX really is. 🤷🏻‍♀️ And yes, what we saw of AZ is really pretty. 11mo
abbsinwonderland @robinb Oh yeah, it is HUGE. I mean, Nebraska doesn't have much either, but at least it's green and there's a little bit more to look at. Plus we have more than dirt roads and "no services" signs ? 11mo
robinb @abbsinwonderland Exactly! It‘s rather eerie to go for miles and miles without seeing ANYTHING but Mother Earth. 11mo
abbsinwonderland @robinb This was also the first time we took my car that far. I was so nervous we would break down there and be completely screwed. No phone service either there! Plus even though it's the interstate hardly anyone was on it. A little too sketchy for me lol 11mo
robinb @abbsinwonderland Wow...a deserted interstate??!! Now that‘s just creepy! 🤯 11mo
abbsinwonderland @robinb DEFINITELY! Lol.. I had my boyfriend walk with me when I had to pee 😂 plus I always have knives and pepper spray on me just in case. 11mo

✨I'm sorry I've been kind of MIA lately. I've been taking a break from social media and even been in kind of a reading slump. I do wanna say thank you to everyone who has continued to ask how my sister is. Right now, she's fine! More tests to do to figure out what's wrong. Still no real answers.

✨Thank you everyone for the well wishes, positive thoughts and vibes, prayers, for allowing me to be scared. Thank you.
✨They ended up not having to slow my sister's heart down (it was already at 50), but she did pass out from whatever meds they gave her. She's done with the scans now and we're anxiously awaiting for the doctors to call us back.
✨Again, thank you everyone. Today also happens to be my Momma's birthday, so hoping for good results.

I've been trying to help some #PageHabit subscribers. I was apart of their official Facebook group, until they blocked me for expressing my sympathy & telling people to message me if they were interested in a new box.
If anyone here is still subscribed to PageHabit, I highly recommend finding a new subscription box. I'm sorry to anyone I recommended this box to- if you'd like a code for #OwlCrate, let me know.💜

Thousand-Lives I just cancelled my subscription after receiving July‘s “surprise” box. 12mo
abbsinwonderland @Thousand-Lives They surprise was you being screwed over. 😤 I'm truly so upset, I can't imagine how you feel. I'm sorry. I hope they right their wrongs, but it seems they're just digging themselves a deeper hole.. 12mo
Thousand-Lives @abbsinwonderland Totally not your fault! I was lucky because although not in my selected genre, the book I received is one I will read. I just didn‘t want to continue doing business with them after their tricky “surprise.” 12mo
See All 15 Comments
abbsinwonderland @Thousand-Lives I just feel bad. I know what my box means to me and how much I look forward to it. PageHabit has been shady since Gabe left. I think he saw something like this happening and didn't wanna be apart of it.. 12mo
Cailey_Mac Awww I don‘t know the scenario is, but I think it‘s awful when a person who runs a company finds it necessary to be rude right off the bat to you! I had a similar experience ( I won‘t name the bookish company ) in which I simply asked where my tracking email was as it had been well over a month since I ordered it, and was met with a very nasty email 🙃 Let‘s just say I will stay with either OwlCrate, Uppercase, or Fairyloot from now on. 12mo
abbsinwonderland @Cailey_Mac This whole situation is insane! Lawsuits, possibly. I totally agree. I'm sticking with those ones also! Someone also showed me a Fairyloot knock off (still GREAT quality items), but it's in the states! So I might check that one out, too. 12mo
Cailey_Mac @abbsinwonderland Yikes! Well, sounds like karma came around fast! And oooo a US version of Fairyloot?! Always worth a try! 12mo
abbsinwonderland @Cailey_Mac I thought so, too! It's called FaeCrate if you wanna check it out. 12mo
MallenNC I still haven't even received my July box, and no tracking for the second month in a row. I've seen a lot of complaints from those who have gotten their boxes. I just cancelled, and I don't know if that means I won't get the July box (since I have no idea if it ever shipped) or if they'll start the cancellation with August. Incredibly frustrating. 12mo
abbsinwonderland @MallenNC I'm so sorry you're going through this mess. I wish I could help. There's so much going on with this whole situation and PageHabit isn't being very professional or transparent about it. This is really gonna sink them, if they weren't already going under. 12mo
MallenNC @abbsinwonderland Thank you! I honestly would just like them to apologize at this point. On the bright side, this saves money I can spend on other books! 12mo
abbsinwonderland @MallenNC They apologized extremely sarcastically to me (not even subbed) in an email and I just about lost it. A public statement (sincere would be ideal) is definitely needed I think. And that's a great way to look at it! More money for other books. 💜📚 12mo
MallenNC @abbsinwonderland I just looked at your IG and saw that. I work in PR and that is not the way to respond to customer/group member. 12mo
abbsinwonderland @MallenNC I don't even work in PR or customer service, but I think my reply was pretty darn good. Especially for how mad I was. I was/am flabbergasted by the whole situation 12mo
MallenNC Me too. When I emailed them a week or so ago they told me sorry about no tracking, but didn't give any indication on when my box would arrive. Clearly they're out of their depth, but oh well. 12mo

✨ 1) Um....sure. 🙃 Some shelves are, but there isn't too much organization beyond genre or authors.
✨ 2) I have three giant stacks on the floor by one of my shelves then have a full shelf of TBRs...I wouldn't say that's out of control though. 🤣🤗📚

✨I've seen alot of #CatsofLitsy today so here's my baby Nyx again when we were reading My Plain Jane. She literally never leaves my side- taking a shower? She's sitting on the edge of the tub. Using the restroom? She's sitting between my feet. Doing my hair/makeup? She lays in the laundry hamper by the sink. Sleeping? She lays on my back. She's worse than my puppy when it comes to attention but I love her so much. 💜😻

Aims42 Awwww that face 😍😍😍 such a beauty!! 12mo
abbsinwonderland @Aims42 I know Tabby cats are usually pretty even with their markings, but I feel like hers are so symmetrical. Literally every mark is the same on the other, even on her belly and legs. She's perfect 💜 12mo
abbsinwonderland @Aims42 I hope that made sense lol like how her eye markings are symmetrical, all her markings are. 🙈 I can't help but brag and talk on and on about her. I'm sorry lol 😸😹 12mo

abbsinwonderland @Aims42 I lived on a farm so we had tons of animals. 100 cats at one point. Then I had one that was JUST MINE that I got about 6 years ago but couldnt have at my apartment, named Dory, but farm living(with my grandpa and his cat Dora) is dangerous. I've wanted another ever since. I begged and begged my boyfriend for one for three years! He finally said yes and we got Nyx 😊💜 12mo
abbsinwonderland @laurenlovesliterature she's roughly 13 weeks so she has lots of time to learn! My boyfriend said he'd buy me a new succulent basket so it's ok now. 😊 I figured it'd happen a few times! Sucks cause my plants are my babies too lol 12mo

1) I lended a book to a friend way back in fourth/fifth grade.. it was actually the first three books of a series. I never saw them again. So, no. 🙈
2) I mostly read sci-fi and fantasy, YA; but I don't mind branching out. 📚
3)I have soo many other knick knacks and bookish items on my shelves. Another addiction of mine.🤷

SilversReviews Thanks for playing. After that experience I see why it would definitely make it difficult to lend books. 12mo

✨ Honestly, I wasn't very excited to read this. Again, it's just not my cup of tea. Although, I finished it in 24 hours and it turned out not be as bad as I thought it would be.
✨ Twinkle drove me absolutely insane, but I enjoyed Sahil. Unfortunately, that's all I have to really say about this one. 🤷

Pickpick

✨ I've never ready anything of Jane Austen or of Charlotte Brontë, romance is really, really not my cup of tea. That being said, I really enjoyed this #owlcrate pick. Mystery, ghosts, murder and such is more my cup of tea. It had a little romance, but given Victorian times I understand.
✨It kind of makes me want to read "My Lady Jane". To anyone who has read it, would I enjoy it if I enjoyed this one? ??

rubyslippersreads I haven‘t read this one yet (though I‘m dying to), but I loved My Lady Jane. 12mo
Missusb I want to read this because I read the other one. I found My Lady Jane hilarious and irreverent. Is that the same with My Plain Jane? 12mo
abbsinwonderland @Missusb Yes! I would say it is. I think I'll have to get My Lady Jane. I think these three authors work wonderfully together. Do they address the reader in My Lady Jane? They do in My Plain Jane. 12mo

rjsthumbelina I loved My Lady Jane! So excited to get to this one! And yes, they do address the reader in the first one,too. They are such a riot together! 12mo
abbsinwonderland @Merethebookgal Awesome! Thank you! I definitely will. 😊 12mo
abbsinwonderland @rjsthumbelina I love when authors do that! Wonderful. Thank you! I'll for sure be getting My Lady Jane. I wish I was subscribe to OwlCrate when it was in one of their boxes. 12mo

✨I'll also be reading the third book. ??

✨I'm honestly not too excited to read this #OwlCrate pick, but if it wants a worthy place on the bookshelf my OCD will not allow it to be unread. I also have a GoodReads goal to make. 😂📚🤷

InBooksILive I feel you! This isn't a book I'm hurrying to go out and read but if I had it like you I'd read it just because I can't have unread books on my shelves either and that goodreads goal! Haha 12mo
CraftELibrarian I listened to her other book When Dimple Met Rishi and thought it was an adorable, quirky romantic comedy. It's also kind of a traditions vs modern day young woman in America. If this one is anything like that I think I'll enjoy it. Just ordered my first #owlcrate today. Can't wait til August 😄 12mo
abbsinwonderland @InBooksILive hahaha I knew someone here would understand the struggle! 12mo
abbsinwonderland @CraftELibrarian Yes, I think you would also! And oooh, first OwlCrate! I'm excited for you! August should be a really good box! 12mo

✨AHHHHHHHHHH!!!! These two books... Lemme tell ya something.. I haven't read a series this good for awhile. It has some dark topics, but they are sooo well written and the views from so many. The questions and moral... ethics? it brings to light are both fascinating and troubling. I cannot wait for "The Toll" to come out so I can find out what happens next ??
✨If you couldn't tell from all the pages tabs, I thoroughly enjoyed these books. ?

mcctrish I was convincing a non YA reader she needs to get over herself and read Scythe, some books are only YA because their protagonists are YA. I am procrastinating on this one because I don‘t want to have to wait for the next one 12mo
minkyb These are great. Try his Unwind series. 12mo
abbsinwonderland @mcctrish Yes! I wouldn't of started it if I knew there was a third. 🙈 12mo

✨I've been wanting to read this for awhile and I'm finally gonna start it. I also have the second one, but I think I heard there was going to be a third?
✨I've heard lots of great things about Scythe so hopefully it won't be a total drag like the book I just finished. 🙃📚

VeganCleopatra Thanks for letting me know! 12mo
abbsinwonderland @VeganCleopatra No problem! I think they might have left over boxes in their shop, it had alot of great items- not a fan of the book pick, though. You could also check out the shop that made the bookmark.. Ink&Wonder Designs 12mo
VeganCleopatra Do you like OwlCrate overall? Thanks for all the info! 12mo
abbsinwonderland @VeganCleopatra I do! I've actually had a subscription for almost two years! It's the one box where I've kept my subscription going. Sometimes I don't care for the books, but the goodies are always worth it in my opinion. Even though I didn't like last months book, the goodies were a badass beach towel, a mug, tea, and of course this bookmark with a few little things. 12mo
VeganCleopatra 🤔 I do enjoy bookish items. I'll give one a try maybe. That bookmark I asked about? It seems unique to the boxes, it isn't on their website. Le sigh. 12mo
abbsinwonderland @VeganCleopatra ahhh, that's what I figured! Alot of the items are just made for OwlCrate. Perhaps you can find another you like? I think the wooden bookmarks are super unique and cool. 12mo
VeganCleopatra Oh yeah, they have a bunch to choose from. Do they seem durable? 12mo
abbsinwonderland @VeganCleopatra Very! I never had a wooden bookmark before and I was a little worried about them being flimsy or something, but I was really impressed with them. Definitely really good quality. Shame on me for letting her, but my kitty's teeth don't even leave marks when she plays with it 🙈 12mo
