Book Review: The Hopeless Life of Charlie Summers.

Alright, I’m finally done with this. Took me awhile to finish reading, it did, and now I’m two books behind my 2016 Reading Challenge! I’m supposed to finish reading 50 books before the end of the year too. Well, without further ado, here is what I think about the book. My usual routine will begin…

Book Review: A Summer Affair.

First, I’d like to extend my gratitude and relief for the introduction of Canva into my blogging life. With this free content software tool, I can now create and design just about anything for my blog. And never again do I have to “borrow” images from other websites. Though, I still do that from time…

New Year, New Challenges.

I’m sure many of you have Tumblr and/or Pinterest accounts at some point in your life, but would you have stumbled upon the infographics above for a reading challenge? I saw this on Pinterest but more often than not, I see it on Tumblr. I’ve never taken up the challenge as I’m not interested in…

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…

Tipping Point of Relaxation.

Hello Friday, welcome back! We’ve been looking for you since Monday and expecting your arrival since Wednesday. Please stay a little longer this time, okay? Because we all need a longer break. Well, depends on how you see it but this weekend can be a long weekend because Deepavali falls on this coming Tuesday, 10…

To Read, Or Not to Read.

My voracious appetite for books and reading has earned me a number of interrogative questions, especially by my relatives on how many books I’ve read, how many books do I buy at one given time, and how is it that I can go for long periods reading and not falling asleep. Because many people I…

Welcome Back, Friday!

Wow. Aren’t you glad it’s Friday already? Where have you been? We have been looking for you all week since Monday! Welcome back, Friday, and you know what? Can you please stay a little longer this time? Thanks. We could certainly do with a longer weekend. Anyway… To reboot (or here’s a recap of) my…

Of Coffee and Macarons.

When I think of relaxing with a cup of coffee and my book, I always ask myself, “Where should I go to have my daily cuppa and maybe something to nibble on while reading my book?” That question never fails to escape my thoughts before planning my day. Sadly, not many cafe joints here can…

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…

When I Read…

When I read, I find my surrounding falling away and fading, leaving me in a perfect world of fantasy. When I read, I find myself shrinking and disappearing, before slowly reappearing in the world of my book. Because when I read, the world is just better. Does that happen to you? I find myself pulling…

Unconventional Love.

I’ve only recently begun reading this young adult fiction titled ‘Eleanor & Park‘ by Rainbow Rowell (who is also behind books such as ‘Landline‘, ‘Fangirl‘, and ‘Attachments‘. From what I can tell just by reading the first few chapters, this book is all about the love between two sweet sixteen-year-old teenagers. Both are nerds whose…
