A must read post about The Last Jedi! 👏👏👏

My Side Of The Laundry Room

There is a hail storm of negativity regarding Rian Johnson’s directorial debut in the Star Wars Universe. People just seem bound and determined to dislike (or loath) the new direction our beloved franchise is going and each and every one of them want their

[ARC] Batman : Nightwalker by Marie Lu

I had high hopes for this book! Shame it only rated 3.5 stars!

Bookidote | Book Reviews

Following DC’s tradition, after Leigh Bardugo’s delivers a strong Wonder Woman, now it’s time for Marie Lu to write her version of Batman ! If it was to fall on co-blogger’s hand, Lashaan would have probably praised this book just for the fact that it’s Batman LOL #diehardfan but unfortunately, it went through me, a personal hater of Batman from the start. So let’s see how this novel perfom !


What I can tell you is this: Marie Lu has officially succeeded to make Batman less irritable and more bearable. 


The backstory of the villain. Madeleine is a complex character and it is one of the focus of the novel. She’s a criminal, detained in Arkham Asylum after being seeing on a murder scene of a billionaire. However, there’s so much to her. She’s only eighteen but extremely smart too.  The prologue was so good and it starts…

Worst Fantasy Novel Plan- EVER!

Such a funny post lol

the orang-utan librarian

*Lovingly made for all fantasy fans*

Ever wonder how cliche fantasy books get written? Well wonder know more, because this is the ultimate guide for writing the WORST fantasy novel imaginable! Enjoy!

pathetic fallacy sad-face-doctorBefore we get started we need a prologue about *mysterious forces* at work. It must be overladen with plenty of pathetic fallacy- make sure that wind roars and rain falls- you set that tone! Please note that this can’t have any actual bearing on the plot, because that would be daft. Instead, let’s flashback 10000 years, before the dawn of mankind, to where a magical talking rook-creature-thing lived. There- that seems sufficiently random and obscure. Now we can forget all about that and get to the actual plot…


Welcome to the village of Farplace where nothing ever happens and say hello to this random farmhand Nut M Portant (Nut for short). He doesn’t have many hobbies, except…

Wow! It feels amazing to finally reach this milestone. It’s been a long road but I’ve done it, all thanks to you guys!

I launched Reads & Reels a little more than a year and a half ago, and it has been quite the experience. When I first started, I was more than just a noob blogger, I was new to web design, graphic design, Goodreads, Net Galley… Really the list just goes on forever. All I knew were books and movies. That, and I wanted to share my passion with like-minded people.

The first few months were a fruitless struggle. I was writing and writing but nobody was reading and that sucked! Even if we say we don’t care about the numbers, we still follow our stats and at the beginning it was heartbreaking. It took months to reach 100 followers. Months of learning the ins and outs of…
