Love thyself! And be proud of it!

“You are so much in love with yourself” “You are always so fond of yourself” “You care a lot about yourself” I have heard these phrases so many time I had to write about it here. My question every time someone says something like this to me is- when and how did we begin to…

Book Review: The Keeper of Lost Things- by Ruth Hogan

Over the years, he had filled his drawers and shelves with fragments of other people’s lives and somehow they had helped to mend his– so cruelly shattered– and make it whole again. This quote above was the only time I found myself liking this book. And it was chapter 5 of 51. I honestly don’t…

Book Review: Little Fires Everywhere – by, Celeste Ng

Book Review: Final Girls,  by Riley Sager

For a regular thrillers fan, it’s very easy to come up with theories while reading a book,  and more often than not, one of those theories proves right in the end. That is when readers like me end up giving a three star review. Because, hey if I wanted predictable, I would read Young adult…

Book Review: Ugly Love, by Colleen Hoover

After reading “It ends with us”, I had high expectations when I started reading this book. Hoover has an understanding about overly emotional creatures called women & how they are so not wise when it comes to men, specially those men who treat them like trash. But this book shows that Hoover has an understanding…

Book Review: 10 things I can see from here, by Carrie Mac

Freak out. Calm down. Repeat.  The story revolves around Maeve and her panic attacks. She panics about getting her head slashed off on a bus. She worries about drowning while on the ferry.

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: Edhi, A mirror to the blind, By Tehmina Durrani

This is not a book review. These are just very few words about how I feel regarding what I have read and the great lessons I have learnt from this legend’s life. I cannot begin to describe how I feel after reading about this man who belongs to a different world altogether, yet gave his…

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: The Sun Is Also A Star, By Nicola Yoon

If you pull back far enough and wait for long enough, then order emerges; because everything looks like chaos up close. The most beautiful and attractive book cover I have seen in a  while. This one is a very interesting insight into how our minds in today’s world work. Even after reading the whole book, 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 &…
