READING is the utmost pleasure – that’s true enough.Anyone up for debate on THIS topic, here is my reply to you –
But sometimes it also serves as a reminder of the acute lack ( of what, exactly? ) in our lives. When I see all those characters so intimately involved in each other’s thoughts and feelings – the inner workings of their minds – I can’t help but feel a sharp sting. It reminds me of all the things that I don’t have in my life yet – all those things that I haven’t experienced. And what’s more – it makes me wonder IF I’ll EVER have it all? And these realizations pave way to skepticism. So, in a way reading is dangerous. It is AS TREACHEROUS AS IT IS PLEASURABLE.
I was tired from the day’s nothingness. Everything seemed static. I had accomplished nothing that day. I just spent all those hours thinking about how NORMAL my life had become – devoid of any REAL excitement. NOTHING. And that was when I spotted the book, just lying on my side table.On top of it was a half-finished cup of coffee and a piece of cake. SEE, I WAS THAT TIRED!! I did not even finish my CAKE!!! But I mustered strength enough to pick up the book, dust off the crumbs and finally LOOK AT IT. It’s blue cover – the deep of the sky. A girl sitting with her back to my face. I wondered what she was thinking. I wondered what she might be looking at. AND THEN I READ THE TITLE. LIARS AND SAINTS.
I made AMAZING new friends. I read GORGEOUS books. I ACTUALLY HAD FUN WHILE WRITING MY BLOG POSTS. I bought new heels ;p *BLACK*
GUESS I CAN CONFIDENTLY SAY THAT SEPTEMBER WAS A BLASTTTTT!!!
I read Man and Boy by Tony Parsons and Elizabeth is Missing by Emma Healey as my A-Book-A-Day Challenge and I WAS FLOORED! I had bought both of them casually and had no more expectations than Mrs. Bennet had from Mary ;p but I WAS SOOOO WRONG.
And here’s why: Continue reading “[Mini Reviews] Man and Boy + Elizabeth is Missing”
I absolutely had no hopes of actually completing it on time. My abilities shocked me! When I started this challenge last Monday, I was not feeling competitive or anything like that. I just dwelt on the satisfaction that would be mine if I actually complete this on time. And, look I DID it, Tiana. (She’s the one who gave me the idea, bless her! 🙂 You guys should check her blog out. )
And now I will break it all down for you – how I managed it and how much I panicked through the course of the week. Continue reading “[Update] A-Book-A-Day #Challenge //COMPLETED//”
A book that laid all my thoughts bare and forced me to rethink everything in general.
I cannot EVER summarize it in a few words so just let me acquaint you with the feelings my heart caressed and the thoughts that my mind was possessed of as I read it. Continue reading “You’ve GOT to read this!! | Mister Pip by Lloyd Jones”
Hey, soooo…………………..huh…………………………I just realized that I obsess over particular writers and/or books on a bi-weekly or monthly basis and now that I come to think about it, I can easily share it with you guys too. 🙂
For this month, I will start with my LOVE, Jane Austen! 🙂 🙂 And there will be two+ posts each week about her works and my thoughts on them, in detail. This is something I do all the time but this is the first time I will be actually writing it all down. I hope it’s fun.
