My name is Kritika, and I love stories that take place in other worlds and other times. I read a lot of science fiction, fantasy, literary fiction, and historical fiction. I’m also a PhD student, dancer, and baking enthusiast, so you might see a sprinkling of these on the blog too!

So… how did I come up with the title for this blog? I used to have a book blog on blogger for a few years with the same title, and 2020 seemed like a great time for a fresh start. I put this title together because it’s a combo of two of my favorite words; they just sound pretty. They’re both such delicate, beautiful things that are far stronger and more powerful than people realize. That’s how I feel about stories, too. Books have helped me evolve as a person, create new friendships, and change the way I interact with the world. That’s true power.
