Word love

Hey bloggers,I’m back.I know it’s been a long time since I’ve written and here I’m to make up for it.

So,back to my word search.I found a new word on pinterest and that is… “Indwell”

Sounds familiar?

Indwell is defined as being permanently present in somebody’s soul or mind.The person thinking about you all the time could say that you are indwelling on their mind.

What comes to your mind when you hear this word?A newly married couple would have each other indwelling on them.I personally,being in my teens have my friends have them indwell on my mind.

There can be other examples .A husband who lost his wife recently would have her dominating his thoughts.So she is indwelling on him.A mother who just had a baby would have him/her indwelling on her thoughts.

So overall,I find it a deep and intimate word.

I hope I haven’t been disappointing?

Wrath and the Dawn

This is one highly recommended book and I managed to read it right after my exams. Yipee! I am a free bird!

THIS DANGEROUS GIRL.THIS CAPTIVATING BEAUTY.THIS DESTROYER OF WORLD AND CREATOR OF WONDER.A QUEEN IN EVERY SENSE OF THE WORD.

Okay .So this is going to be a spoiler.

This book is set in the land of  “A Thousand And One Nights”.The caliph of Khorasan , Khalid, is the cruel and unfeeling monster who marries a bride every and hangs her on dawn.The monster who hates women due to his mother who had an affair with another man and was killed by his father in front of his own eyes.

And then, comes Shahrzad. The girl who volunteered for the marriage ,and following it, her death.But she is here with an aim.Avenge the death of her best friend who left this world because of this monster’s cruelty.And she will.

But then, she finds that nothing is as it seems and this boy king before her is just a shadow of who he really is.Read the whole book to find out why.And if you haven’t yet,don’t continue reading this blog ‘coz what follows is going to spoil your view on the book and I don’t want my views to pollute yours.

 

So here is what I felt after reading the book.I found it to be over-rated.And under-evaluated. I read it on my friend’s recommendations and was eager to read it because my friend who was a good critique had given real positive opinion about it.But after reading it ,I was..surprised.

Sure,it’s a good book.It has a good plot, a good story line. But that was not what I’d expected.Right,who am I to criticize a best selling book? Please note that this is just my opinion and what I felt about it and I believe that I have the right to expression.So I am NOT going to apologize.

As I said ,it is a good book.And I like it.But the thing is I had expected it to be one that would make me sit before the laptop for hours unable to move.But it didn’t. I finished and was still waiting for it to grip me.

But I enjoyed the book and do recommend it.In case you have a different perspective,let me know!

Love,

till my next post.

Confessions of a Tea Sippin’ Blogger: I Live in a Home of Non-readers

I can totally relate to you

Books, Vertigo and Tea

A lot has changed since I began my adventures as a blogger. My life has been enhanced in many ways. One of the biggest being that I now belong to the ever growing community of readers who choose to share their passion online with others. For myself, this was one of the very reasons for establishing my niche in the blogosphere because..

confession1I live in a home of non-readers. Yes, you read that correctly and maybe even relate to it on some degree. But what does that mean?

girlreading.pngReading has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember.. well anything. It started with a growing collection of picture books that soon gave way to classics such as A Wrinkle in Time and Anne of Green Gables. And while most members of my immediate surroundings were not avid readers, I was fortunate in the fact that…

One word..Massive.

Trust me.I hate cliche books.But this one was just so…right.

It all begins with Amelia going to her school on her first day and guess what,she bumps into the world’s most arrogant,intimidating guy..Aiden Parker.Not to mention his best friends Noah and Mason.Amelia literally terms them walking skyscrapers.Hot skyscrapers!!

Amelia,who had decided to not attract attention towards herself ends up being THE most discussed about person in school by……standing up to him.

As the book unwinds,we get to know there is a lot of histories left unacknowledged.

I am not going to ruin your roller coaster ride with my blabbering.But here is my request

Do not judge it until you finish.Trust me. You won’t regret reading it.

It has just the right amount of snarkiness and sarcasm. And there is a lot going on in everybody’s life. So enjoy the read. You’ll love it

Don’t forget to let me know what you think of it..!

Hi world!

I began blogging on a dare.But the satisfaction it gave me was immense. I felt accomplished when I publish a blog of my own. But being relatively new, I too fell in what I call the blogging slump. Unlike the book slump, I want to write a blog but is just not able to make myself do it.

So then I decided to make this blog more personal so that I can just pour my heart out instead of writing articles(bored expression)

Ssssoo,here I am .I am a girl of 16,living from South India with an overpowering need to prove people wrong.When somebody says “you can’t do that”, I make it my life’s goal to do it.ha ha Not funny.Living in India,the social restrictions imposed are numerous and how can you blame a teenager for wanting to break at least a few of them?

I started this blog with no pre-blogging plans.I thought I would just write out some thing I strongly about(which are a lot) and maybe add some hashtags and a few book reviews and food reviews(being both a foodie and a bookie).

I am a feminist and that too a hardcore one(being one in India is not that easy)and you will find some strong emotions here.

And, I am a dreamer living in my world of fantasies.I live out a life that I want to in my head.

So,that’s it about me…and I am opening up because I believe that you will only be able to perceive the things I write about in my way if you know me personally

And I would like to know you awesome people out there too.It would be fun knowing people from different parts of the world ,and that too personally…and if any of you out there is on the search for a pen pal(or rather mail pal.*wink*), you are always welcome.

Just mail me in the mail address available or put yours in the comments.We sure can bond..

So bye, till my next post and I don’t know when( because I am a school going girl and I have my exams next week) So please don’t feel bad if I don’t reply immediately.

 

In the Blink of an eye!

via Daily Prompt: Blink

The lane was deserted

as it had been for the past years

The streetlight on my right too

as usual,was reluctant to open its eyes.

But what made it unusual

was that today not one,

but two shadows lay on the gossamer lined lane.

Mine,the longer was slow

the other,smaller,was faster

And in the blink of an eye,

it had turned the corner

and disappeared from my sight and soon,

mind

and was forgotten

in the hustle of daily life.

But while walking on

the gossamer lined street with the reluctant streetlight,

the stranger who disappeared in the blink of an eye,

sometimes appear more than that.
