“You are all the colours in one, at full brightness.” | My Thoughts on All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven | A Spoiler-free Book Review

“It’s my experience that people are a lot more sympathetic if they can see you hurting, and for the millionth time in my life I wish for measles or smallpox or some other easily understood disease just to make it easier on me and also on them.” When the story begins with a young boy […]

“You only really know what a smile means when you own the face behind it. Everyone else just sees the smile they expect it to be.” | My Thoughts on The Shock of The Fall by Nathan Filer | Spoiler-free.

  “Mental illness turns people inwards. That’s what I reckon. It keeps up forever trapped by the pain of our own minds, in the same way that the pain of a broken leg or a cut thumb will grab your attention, holding it so tightly that your good leg or your good thumb seem to […]

Mr. Doughnut, it was all about veganism and a sleepover | 14 & 15 April, 2018

Hi Doughie I miss you! 7:11 AM: It’s time to hit the gym again! I’ve been feeling much better with all the exercising and workout. Surprisingly, I’ve started to enjoy early mornings! So today apart from cardio, the trainer got me to lift some weights and you know I’ve barely used my right arm to lift […]

Mr. Doughnut, it’s all about miracles, curses and well..hitting the gym! | 13 April, 2018

Hi Doughie, I think it’s time I resume writing Diary entries  but because I don’t get to spend my days with you around, I’d like to address these entries to you just as I’ve been writing letters. My life’s pretty dull and monotonous without you but I’ve been working on keeping myself busy and doing […]

Mr. Doughnut, I jumped for the first time in 12 years. | 9-11 March, 2018

Hi Doughie I’m listening to Kommandant’s Girl’s audio book, as I write this. It’s a book by Pam Jenoff, a historical fiction romance. A little different from other books I’ve read based during the Nazi invasion. The narration isn’t that great but it isn’t that bad too. I don’t feel like reading physically, yet and […]

“I taught you to succeed. I goaded you. But when things went wrong…I did not teach you to fail.” My thoughts on If I Had To Tell It Again by Gayathri Prabhu | A spoiler-free book review.

If I Had to Tell It Again by Gayathri Prabhu My rating: 3 of 5 stars In One Line: Read this book to learn strength and patience ; to understand that it’s important to acknowledge and accept ; and learn how to fail. I always find it difficult to “rate” and “review” a memoir. How do […]

Biblio-Comparisons: Turtles All The Way Down & Everything Everything

Hi everyone! Every author has their own way of  creating their characters, specially protagonists. The big and small details, history and struggles. This year, I read two immensely loved books with protagonists that share a few things in common but one in particular – health. But did I equally like them? Here’s a friendly comparison: […]

Dear Diary | 16 Dec, 2017 | The One Where We Follow Mr. Doughnut!

Dear Diary  I look more like winter, than winter looks like winter. Made sense? made sense. It’s so cold! 😀 Early Morning: (Starts whenever I wake up!) Reading, emails, work, tea, Mr. Doughnut.   Mr. Doughnut:    After lunch: When I REALLY wanted to clean my room, wait for Mr. Doughnut to settle down and then came […]
