Hello friends, welcome to my book blog!

I’m Cherelle, a Singaporean-Chinese whom, as you’ve probably noticed, has a soft spot for all things pink.

Since September 2020, this book blog has been my happy place, one where I could gush about and share my thoughts on books I loved freely without fear of boring someone or seemingly verbose.

Some of my favourite books include The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang, These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong, Lovely War by Julie Berry, The Ones We’re Meant to Find by Joan He and Vicious by V.E. Schwab.

I’m a huge fan of historical fiction, fantasy and science fiction, especially when they include morally grey characters, strong friendships and found family, and of course, have Asian representation.

Also yes, if you were wondering, the name of the blog: “A Bolt out of the Book” is a pun on the idiom “a bolt out of the blue”, reflective of my penchant for word play and literary devices.

Thank you for dropping by and I hope you enjoy your time around!

        1. I would go with my all time favourite Lovely War (ww1 narrated by Greek Gods) and All the Light We Cannot See, as well as The Book Thief. Those are admittedly slow paced so if you want a war novel with more action, I highly recommend Kate Quinn’s books, especially The Alice Network or The Huntress! 🤗

          I KNOW, it is near IMPOSSIBLE to pick between so many incredible songs. I love The Schuyler Sisters as well, and ahh Non-Stop reverberates in my head every single day haha. 🥰
