*flails and waves* Hello! My name is Aimal, and I’m so excited that you’re here on this corner of my world in a place where I ramble about things I love (mostly books), and make it seem like my opinion is more important than it actually is.
I was raised in Lahore, and live in New York City. I’m a senior at NYU, getting a degree in Applied Psychology, though I want to work in publishing after graduating – my inner Slytherin that craves money is clearly mad at this idea.
I’m incredibly passionate about diversity in literature, and have made a pact with myself that I will do my utmost best to read diversely. It’s been going fantabulously so far. I love to review books, I love to share my love for them, and I hope we can be friends and bond over our mutual interests (or non-mutual interests, because, ya know, I’m an open-minded person). 😊
Random things I enjoy
⇢ Books, obviously, but specifically really big fantasy books? It’s 600 pages? Well… *grabby hands*
⇢ The rain and thunderstorms, and that specific smell right after it rains.
⇢ Zayn Malik, bro. Have you seen his face? Have you heard his voice? He makes me melt into a puddle of butter.
⇢ Food, but especially biryani. You feel?
⇢ The love-to-hate trope, and the fake dating to real dating trope.
⇢ Music – all types of it, really. There’s always a little tune in my head, and it’s a nice life.
⇢ Netflix-binges. I’m a big fan of TV shows over movies, really, so binging is right up my alley.
⇢ Soldiers in YA series; Chaol Westfall? My ultimate book boyfriend.
⇢ Bookish scented candles.
⇢ Graphic design. I like Photoshop, and I like playing around with it a lot. 😁
