My Top 5 All Time Favorite Fan fictions

We all love to read fan fictions yet at the same time are reluctant to accept this fact in front of others. Let’s admit it, fan fictions are our guilty pleasures.

So here is a list of my all time favorites fan fictions which I love to re-read again and again.

1. Isolation by Bex-Chan

18485142

Isolation is one of my all time favorite Dramione fanfiction. Dramione was a couple that I wanted to be happen so desperately. I mean, enemies turned lovers, who doesn’t like stories with this plot. And this is such a great fan fiction that it has 4.53 stars on goodreads with 128 reviews in total. I have also added link. Please do check this story out. Highly Recommended. Plus all the other stories by Bex-Chan are also great.

2. The Way Of The Wind by Just Enough

This is a Naruto fan fic guys. So there was a time when I was literally obsessed with Naruto and Sasuke/Sakura couple was all time favorite. Well because of the angst between them. I am not going to lie, I love some of the fan fictions because of angst. But this is not a sasu/saku fanfic, it’s Ita/saku fan fic. Also angst level in this fic are moderate, so if you are not a angst lover you’ll definitely love this. Only thing that I didn’t like about this fan fic was long flashbacks. Not a big fan of them.

3.Lured by Anashins

This is K-pop fanfiction. Yes, I am a k-popper and I love to watch K dramas and listen k pop. This was the fanfiction that forced me to make an account on asianfanfics.com. This is a Se hun fan fic. So if Se Hun is your exo bias then this is a must read for you. What I love most about this fic is Angst :). Also there is a lot of smut in this one ( explicit content warning ☺😀).

4. Attayear by Korekrypta

Another K-pop fanfiction. And this time it’s for those people whose bias is Baekhyun. Attayear is a angst filled time-traveling Sci-fi fan fiction. I have read this fic about a dozen times and I fell in love each time. KoreKrypta is my favourite author on asianfanfic site. There are fan fiction stories which are purely fan fic without any solid plot and with a lot of cringe fluffy moments. But for me the thing that matters most is the storyline. KoreKrypta stories are rich with storyline and her character her so strong. whether you read fan fiction or not, I would highly recommend Korekrypta stories.

5.Forgetting Park Chanyeol by Holdon & The Blood Brother Code by KoreKrypta

download (1)

We have a tie for top spot. It was difficult for me choose between these two stories beacuse both of them are awesome. Full of angst, drama and romance. As I have already stated previously that Korekrypta is my favorite author on asianfanfic. Holdon stories are also my favourite. Her plot twists are great and most of her chapters have a cliffhanger ending 😀. Forgetting Park Chanyeol might be my favorite out of these two because Chanyeol is my bias

This was such a hard list for me to make because I have so many other stories that I wanted to add. Some of them are not complete or will never be completed. But all of the above listed stories are complete so you can binge read them and share your thoughts with me.

What are your favorite fan fictions?? Share them with me.Because sharing is caring 😏.

My July and August Book Haul

At the end of July, I visited Karachi and also visited urdu bazaar. Believe me it was literally a heaven for a bookworm like me. My sister and my cousin had to drag me from that place.

So naturally I bought a couple of books from that heavenly place and at a bargain price as well

1. The Dark Artifices by Cassandra Clare

I bought both of these books for only 600/- ( almost 6$) from a bookshop that were having a 70% off sale. When I saw these books, I thought I had won a lottery. Because believe me both of these books are about 1600 Rs. But there was only one downside, the second book of the series ( lords of shadows) is a little bit damaged. Which is totally fine with me as beggars can’t be choosers 😂.

2. The Ministry of Utmost Happiness by Arundhati Roy

The second that I got my hand on was the ministry of utmost happiness by Arundhati Roy. I have not read any book by this author previously and have heard a lot of good reviews about this. So Naturally I had to get my hands on this one. Have you read this one? What are you reviews?? Comment down below.

3. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

The 3rd book that I bought was Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. Now that the series is finally finished, I decided to jump on this bandwagon. Heard mixed review about this one. To be very honest, I think this book was a total cover buy for me.

4. I Am Thunder by Muhammad khan

Bought this books because of all these awesome reviews and I think this is my most anticipated reads.

What do you guys think about my book haul?? Which one should I start first?

P. S: All photographs are taken by me. You call also follow me on Instagram @maira.reads. ( Sorry for shameless promotion 😂).

What I usually do when I don’t want to blog….

I wrote this title during the era when I was so motivated to start my own blog. Naturally this time period fell in to the time zone when I was knee deep in my thesis write up. So what actually happened was I started this mainly to procrastinate. If Iike I have this habit of getting stuck in 5-6 different task, when there is a task which need my dire attention. I mean really….

And I think it’s that time of the year again. There are millions of things around me but I need to procrastinate by reading books and writing there reviews

Not that reading and reviewing books is bad, it’s just my timings that usually suck. Any who now that the rant is over I guess you’ll see more of me over here (at least I hope so)

Tell me what you guys do to procrastinate???

#Moonstruck by Sariah Wilson Review

Release Date: November 17th 2018

Publisher: Montlake Romance

Genre: Romance, New adult, Contemporary Romance, Music

Synopsis:

Over one million “likes”—but only one of them matters.

After pop star Ryan De Luna praises Maisy Harrison’s YouTube cover of his classic hit, he offers Maisy and her fledgling band the opportunity of a lifetime: to be his opening act.

Music may be Maisy’s life, but she has one ground rule: never date a musician. That goes double for a heartbreaker like Ryan. If only she didn’t feel so vulnerable to his larger-than-life charm. And maybe now more than ever, when he asks for her help to shake off his playboy image. How can she resist playing the part of his fake girlfriend for the duration of the tour?

Ryan’s never met anyone like Maisy. She sees past all the star-studded fame and treats him like any other guy. And the more time they spend together, the more he finds himself falling for her. Now he’d like to make their imaginary fling an IRL thing. But can he convince her to take a chance and trust him with her heart?

Review

#Moonstruck by Sarah Wilson is a book that is an appetizer. It’s light, it’s fluffy, it has zero angst and it has a happy ending. Plus it is a Bad boy rockstar (though in this case he was a reformed bad boy) falling for perfect girl cliché.

BUT, for me this was 3.5 star read. #Moonstruck was the perfect book for me to wake me up from the prevalent book slump.

Maisy have one rule for her life and that is to never date a musician. Ryan used to be a playboy who has changed his lifestyle. But Maisy and Ryan somehow ended up in a fake relationship. And as the time goes by it starts to become something more real. I loved the banter between Maisy and Ryan. I love how they compliment each other.

This book is not only filled with romance and mushy scenes but also has some ex girlfriend drama as well.

However, the thing that I liked most about this series was the clean romance. There was not a single scene between Maisy and Ryan that made me cringe or forced me to skip the chapter all together. This is a highly recommended book for those who love romance especially a romance between a musician and a commoner.

The Home-Coming by Stacie Ramey

Release Date: November 1st 2016

Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire

Genre: Romance, Young adult, Coming of age, family

Source: Net galley

Rate: 4/5

SYNOPSIS

Forced to return to his estranged family, John discovers how hard it is to truly go home.
It’s been a year since John lost his girlfriend, Leah, to suicide. Living with his uncle keeps his mind from the tragedy and his screwed up family-until he gets into trouble and a judge sends him back home. With a neglectful mother and abusive brother, John’s homecoming is far from happy.

As he tries to navigate and repair the relationships he abandoned years ago, Emily, the girl next door, is the only bright spot. She’s sweet and smart and makes him think his heart may finally be healing. But tragedy isn’t far away, and John must soon face an impossible decision: save his family or save himself.

REVIEW

I received this book via net galley as arc for review.

John is character with whom you can relate to at some point in your life. He was going through family crisis, his girlfriend killed herself, he was doing drugs , he had anger problem and so so much more. He might be a classic example for ” middle child”case. But he was not all those things intentionally. This book is about family fighting, and breaking and reuniting and giving reader hope that ” All is well that end’s well”. I like how he used a term ‘ dragon ‘ for anger.

But there was some points in this story that i thought resembled with ‘ my sister’s keeper by jodi picoult’. For instance, where rest of the sibling getting neglected due to illness of one. but the resemblance ends at this point.

Happy reading people 🙂

 

Review of Resurrecting Sunshine by Lisa A. Koosis

resurrectingsunshine

Release Date: October 1st, 2016

Publisher: Aw Teen

Genre: Romance, Young adult, science fiction

Source: Net galley

Rate: 5/5

SYNOPSIS

At seventeen, Adam Rhodes is famous, living on his own, and in a downward spiral since he lost the girl he loved. Marybeth stage name Sunshine was his best friend from the days they were foster kids; then she was his girlfriend and his band mate. But since her accidental death, he’s been drinking to deal with the memories. Until one day, an unexpected visitor, Dr. Elloran, presents Adam with a proposition that just might save him from himself. Using breakthrough cloning and memory-implantation techniques, Dr. Elloran and the scientists at Project Orpheus want to resurrect Marybeth, and they need Adam to “donate” intimate memories of his life with her. The memory retrieval process forces Adam to relive his life with Marybeth and the devastating path that brought them both to fame. Along the way, he must confront not only the circumstances of her death but also his growing relationship with the mysterious Genevieve, daughter of Project Orpheus’s founder. As the process sweeps Adam and Marybeth ever closer to reliving the tragedy that destroyed them, Adam must decide how far he’ll go to save her.”

REVIEW

 

This was a slow read for me at first but once I got the grasp of the concept I had to finish this one in one sitting. The name of the novel “Resurrecting Sunshine ” was way more literal than of any other book I have ever read. This book is about heartbreaks, hope, love, friendship, second chances and so so many emotions that we can’t comprehend. Adam had a perfect chance to bring his love back to life, to give his love a second or maybe the first chance that was taken away from him. But at the same the questions that plague his mind are the right one which any sane person would ask. The decision to choose between right and wrong is always a tough one.

Each and everyone of us, if ever had a chance to bring back our loved one back to life or even if were given chance to create ‘ a reprint, an echo, a copy’ might never back down from chance but yet the same time that person we love is buried underground maybe by our own hands. This thought that was of Adam and Gen was so thought provoking that I had to stop myself to give myself time to realize this reality, which BTW was at complete clash with my molecular biologist degree

But that plot twist in the middle. I was like ” woah, let’s take a break for second. let me soak this up ”

This book for me was a solid five stars. This is story  for all ya lovers
