Have you ever been in a situation where you're reading a book and the surroundings or the situation you're in, just intensifies the effect the story has on you? I was recently in that bubble when I devoured the first book of the 'Blood of the stars duology', last weekend. I had pre-ordered this book … Continue reading Spin The Dawn by Elizabeth Lim – Thoughts
I just realized its the last week of the month and while I have started three books, I'm nowhere close to finishing any of those. Not just that, I had bought a book specifically as part of the destination reading challenge for the month and I haven't started that, and now I realized that I … Continue reading My Reading Life is in a mess this month!
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 as … Continue reading Animal Farm by George Orwell – Thoughts

I changed the subject for this post from 'book review' to 'thoughts', because I won't be reviewing the book as such in this post. I will be talking about other things, peculiar and normal, that went through my head when I read the first book from Miss Peregrine's series. For those who don't want to … Continue reading Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs – Thoughts
Another month has gone by and girl, what a month it has been! I thought I would've read more number of books than Feb, considering there were more days in March, but surprisingly, I have read only 4 books in March - which is one less than what I read in Feb! Maybe, I read … Continue reading Life Diaries and Reading Wrap Up – March 2019
Here we go again. That part of this blog when I write for myself and do the obligatory introduction that you will learn nothing from this post other than knowing what I did with my life this month. 😂 February is the month of love, courtesy capitalism and the birth of Valentine's Day. Not that … Continue reading Life diaries & Reading Wrap Up – Feb 2019
I recently joined the many who have watched the currently trending, creepy and wholly possible Netflix series - YOU. Other than the fact that it really says volumes about my darker, crazier side because I could relate to Beck so much and couldn't figure out whether I loathed Joe Goldberg or was secretly rooting for … Continue reading ‘YOU’, Me and the Social Media
This is what happened with me yesterday, a couple of incidents that took place in the morning and led me to think and write this. Scene 1: At the 7:15 am Zumba class. It was an Indian festival and the instructor wanted to do a theme based class. She wanted to make us dance to … Continue reading To please or not to please?
I went for a lunch date with my friends on Friday. There were four couples and we had all made time to meet up for a relaxed lunch, without kids or any other distractions. When all of us arrived, we realized, that we hadn’t done this in the last five to six years, since the … Continue reading The parent’s reunion – Have we lost ourselves, or found ourselves?
