Book Review: The Great Alone, by Kristin Hannah

Why do we read so many books? Why is the addiction so real? Because books take you to places you have never been to and they introduce you to people you’ve never met. Yet you yearn for those places and people like they mean everything to you. This book made me long for a place…

4 Things Exercise changed in my life!

I will always vividly remember the moment I stepped into this gym, the moment I started my trial class and how I realized I needed to run away before my lungs give up. I would really like to thank B.A Paris for writing Behind Closed Doors (you can read my review of the book here)…

Book Review: Behind Her Eyes, by Sarah Pinborough

you might not be afraid of the dark, but are you sure you are not afraid of what it may be hiding? I started reading this book because of the hype about the unpredictable and unexpected ending. I have a thing for the reads where something hits you out of nowhere and you are left…

Book Review: Salt To The Sea, by Ruta Sepetys

Joana; the nurse who has a compassion so profound Florian: carrying something so precious and valuable, stolen from the infamous Amber Room Emilia: carrying a secret she cannot tell anyone about and how their lives get entwined on their way to the port where they’d try to find new life for themselves. During the Operation…

Book Review; This is Where It Ends, by Marieke Nijkamp

I have been eyeing this book for a long time mainly because I work in a school and anything and everything related to school and students is something I can totally relate to. The story is set in an auditorium of Opportunity High School where during a morning assembly and after the Principal’s address, the…

Book Review: In The Stillness, By Andrea Randall

To the man I once cautiously planned a future with in my head before one was planned for us! A beautifully written book, which I absolutely could not relate to, only because I have never been through the kind of circumstances the main character in this story did, and I really hope and wish I…

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,…

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…

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…

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…

5 things people in early twenties need to know!

I have always heard it from those in their late thirties that you begin to enjoy life only after you hit thirty, you relax more and you know more. After celebrating my 2*th birthday (gawd, I feel old now), I can’t agree more. The older you get the more you realize the importance of little…
