Top 10: What Every Reader is Aware Of.

This is a situation that every reader is probably aware of and will most likely understand too. Aren’t we all born to read? Yes we are! Aren’t we all forced to work? Well, sort of… After all, where would we get the money to buy our books, right? Being forced to work is just one…

The A-Z of a Book Lover’s Glossary.

Who else agrees with me on this? That no matter where we are, it will always feel like we have been transported to a new destination whenever we pick up a book to read. I feel that way all the time when I had my nose buried between the pages of a book. Carlos Ruiz Zafon…

I Love (Big) Books, and I Cannot Lie.

Do you know what piques your interest? Do you know what tickles your fancy? Do you know what catches your eye, and makes you go “Ooh!” and “Aah!”? For me, it’s books. I love books, and I love to read. I love reading so much that when I’m in a bookstore, I can say with…

Book Review: The Architect’s Apprentice.

Note to readers: I apologise for the absence of blogging. I was away on a vacation with my husband for his birthday from Thursday and we only got home yesterday. Now that I’m back, the blogging will return to normal. It didn’t take me long to finish reading this, probably because it got me hooked…

Book Review: Deep Down Things by Tamara Linse.

I’ve read this book earlier, and finished it within a week. Only because I brought the book with me to work and spent some time reading it on my lunch break. I realised that I missed out on a post of my thoughts and opinions about the book, so here it is. Today. We will…

Book Review: The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah.

Two sisters. One must be brave. The other should be afraid. Be very, very afraid. After all, it is World War II and in wars, nothing good ever comes out of it. Unless we’re talking about the benefits that the enemies are getting at the expense of the victims. Synopsis: “FRANCE, 1939: In the quiet…

Book Review: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell.

I never wanted it to end but it did. It eventually did. I enjoyed the book so much that I constantly read it week in, week out. I easily covered several chapters a night. Before I knew it, I broke past the middle of the book. Then I realised that I was done with it…

EPL 2015: Chelsea vs. Arsenal.

It was a fiery affair for Arsenal during the match against Chelsea, and at this moment, it depends on how you see it and which side you’re on. I may be a true Arsenal fan, but I have my opinions on how things should have turned out. And definitely for the better. Everything about the…

Book Review: All The Bright Places.

Back in my heydays, I knew what books I wanted to read. Science fiction and fantasy, but mostly fantasy. Magic and sorcery, elves, invincible and swashbuckling heroes, horses and archers penetrating the dark throne rooms of Middle Earth. Yeah, all that jazz. I knew what I wanted to read so I knew which books to…
