Book Review: All The Ugly & Wonderful Things, by Bryn Greenwood

I liked how we were different, but the same. This book is one of the best books I have read. The story is strong, words simple, sentences readable & relatable. An author’s writing style matters more to me than the story itself, and the author has made this powerful message so easy to read &…

Book Review: Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty

Music is the silence between the notes. -Debussy This story is deeper than it shows on the surface. It may take you a while to properly let everything sink in, because there is so much going on at the same time, you need time to comprehend the real purpose behind the author’s efforts, without which,…

To the one who used to be my best friend!

There is so much I want to say. There is so much I have to say. I just don’t know how to, anymore. There used to be a time when I would just take my phone out, type everything, and hit send, without thinking twice. That comfort we had! Now I think and I think…

Book Review: The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee

One of the most interesting reads I have come across this year. Not because the story is great, but the way this story takes you into future, full of technological advancements, new infrastructure, closely connected individuals, and yet, their lives and heads are full of emotions people before them have felt, and so will people…

 You’re missing from me! 

I need to cry a lot,  to mourn the loss of everything I have lost Including myself.  I don’t know when or where or how I went wrong,  But somewhere along the way,  Trying to make it all right,  I lost my way home.  I made all the wrong choices.  I made all the wrong…

Book Review: All The Bright Places, by Jennifer Niven

Where would you go if you could anywhere? Every forty seconds, someone in the world dies by suicide. Every forty seconds, someone is left behind to cope with the loss. A lot of people often joke about something as serious as a suicide attempt. A suicide attempt is not actually a desire to die. In…

Book Review: The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins

Let me get straight to the point; the disappointment of the year for me. I’m feeling so annoyed and agitated after reading this book that I really cannot sugar coat it, even though I picked this book up solely out of hoping “the best seller” tag would be appropriate for once. I really do not…

Book Review:It Ends With Us,  Colleen Hoover

I remember watching a drama series on one of the Pakistani TV channels that went about the same story line; domestic abuse,  physical abuse, male domination in a marriage & the questions even best of psychologists cannot answer, why do women stay in an abusive relationship? Or more important,  the thought this book so well…

To those who loved and lost! 

I know pain. I know it because I have seen it, suffered it, lived it. I know how you shake so hard while crying you can barely breathe. I know how you feel nothing,  numb, frozen,  void of any emotions. I know how you gave him one chance after another,  just because you loved him…

Book Review: Honour &  The Bastard of Istanbul by Elif Shafak 

After reading Forty Rules of Love,  I was absolutely in love with the author’s writing style and how she narrates everyday yet so deep stories without making it sound like you’re reading something  set in a time you know nothing about. I started reading Honour while I was at the salon getting highlights in my…

Not Forgiving, Not Forgetting. 

They say we never really forget and we never really forgive. Like Carrie Bradshaw once put it, “can we forget without forgiving  and can we forgive without forgetting?” And what if we are incapable of doing either of them?  There are some things that I can forget. Him, for example. That I can forget. But…
