Life Diaries and Reading Wrap Up – June 2019

Terry Pratchett, on what happens after death: The point is, if there’s nothing, there’s nothing to worry about. And if there is something, its bound to be interesting I hope my papa is doing something interesting right now too 🙂 June was an interesting month of reading. June was also my effort to try andContinue reading “Life Diaries and Reading Wrap Up – June 2019”

Longest haircut ever and what I read last week

You would think if I had my hair cut, why is the post called the ‘longest’ haircut? Doesn’t make any sense. Also, while I spent three hours of my ‘me-time’ away from the toddler on that uncomfortable chair in the salon, I wondered, why does it take so long to get one’s hair cut shorter?Continue reading “Longest haircut ever and what I read last week”

Animal Farm by George Orwell – Thoughts

After reading two of his books, I think George Orwell had psychic powers or some sort of vision to be able to see and write things in 1940s that seem true or relevant even now. I’m truly spooked! I had read 1984 earlier and was shaken by the fact that what he had written asContinue reading “Animal Farm by George Orwell – Thoughts”

Paperbooks, kindle or e-books, audiobooks – if you really want to read, there is no excuse not to read really! 😉 I had read the first book of Deborah Harkness’s All Souls Trilogy, last year – A DiscoveryContinue reading “Shadow of night (All Souls Trilogy #2) by Deborah Harkness – Audiobook Review”

A reader’s rant on a local bookstore

I have to warn you, this is going to be a rant. If I hurt anyone’s sentiments while doing this, I’m sorry- but I just have to let this out of my system. Not to mention, I have already ranted about this on the phone with my husband, on watsapp groups with my best friends,Continue reading “A reader’s rant on a local bookstore”

The Greek Gods Book Tag

Between moving and trying to keep up with my reading and writing goals for the month, it was a pleasant surprise to see my blog tagged for this:) I’m not sure how many answers I’ll have because I’m slightly bad with remembering books and its only recently that I have started book journaling, but I’mContinue reading “The Greek Gods Book Tag”

Reading Wrap Up – October 2018

I had big plans for my reading in October. Then those big plans kind of flopped. Socials, daycare stuff, illnesses, shifting preparations for moving back to India, all got in the way of my reading plans this month. Also, to add, I had plans of reading a lot of spooky, dark books this month, inContinue reading “Reading Wrap Up – October 2018”
