Bookworm Days

I am going through that phase where I just want to read as many books as possible. I want to go through most of them cover to cover. The number of books I have bought recently like crazy thinking I will finish them all in just one go.

Every book I see and come to know about, I have a strong urge that I should read them. It is my duty to read them and then enlighten the world with the knowledge of how I found that book to be. (I know this seems stupid.)

I have always loved reading but not the way I have started reading these days. Some of the novels that I have finished in the last 2 months are:

  1. Veronica Decides to Die – It was okay. I didn’t like it much.
  2. Can you keep a Secret? – Light and fun reading chic-lit.
  3. The White Tiger – I loved it!
  4. The Husband’s Secret – Again, this was okay. It was kind of predictable.
  5. And the Mountains Echoed – I have loved all Khalid’s books. This one was also great.
  6. The Time Traveler’s Wife – It was a bit lengthy and got tiring. Although, I really liked the story-line.

The list is ever growing. Let me know if you are going or have ever went through this phase in life and what all books did you read? Well, I must admit, it is fun.

 

Daily Prompt: New Beginnings

via Daily Prompt: Mope

As the year 2016 is about to end, a series of moping will now start as to what we did wrong and what we should not have done. My personal take is that whatever we do adds to our being. Each day’s experiences, either good or bad makes us who we are.

I am really happy for all the changes that I have made in my life this year. I am happy that my life is getting defined in a new way.

This year we added a new family member; my pet dog, Oreo. I changed my job or rather my manager and am really happy at my current job. I shifted into living with my boyfriend and have understood the meaning of settlement.

What I can really mope about is my negligence for my health. I need to focus more on my personal well-being which I believe is the most important factor for happiness.

My 2016, in all ways was good and a few negative experiences are not going to change that, come hell or high water 😛 . I wish everyone a Happy New Year 2017 and hope that you achieve success in whatever field you espouse !!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Remember Me?

Imagine waking up one day and realizing you are 3 years ahead and you don’t remember even a single day of your last 3 years. Moreover, you are now a changed person. Lexi wakes up in a hospital and learns that it is 2007, not 2004. She is the boss of the department she used to work in, and she is married to a millionaire!! This book keeps you glued till the end where you want to know what happened that changed Lexi and her life so drastically.

Amnesia can be frustrating and the idea behind the novel is thought provoking. What would you do in a situation like her, where you do not recognize your new and current life. Lexi decides that she will play along thinking that it will revive her memory. Reader’s discover the mystery along as Lexi tries to figure out her life.

I really enjoyed reading this one! This was my first ever Sophie Kinsella novel. The story was funny and crazy but it just clicks with the reader. I may admit that the novel may attract only the girl crowd, but this novel is well written. The clever plot kept me turning pages at the record pace. Looking forward to reading her Shopaholic series.

Here’s the Thing

3 months back… I was in this place where I had a few people with me who are worth mentioning.

The first of course is my girlfriend. She was a part of all my shenanigans! Together we were ruling the place and trust me we made people jealous. A different kind of jealous, where they used to be more in a state of shock. There was nothing that we both couldn’t do. I miss being with her. Be it Foosball, cricket or TT or any other sport, we were donning it together. The way we dirty danced in our first and again in our last parties. Uff we were sexy together. We could have laughed at our troubles and made trouble sorry for even making an existence.

Journey with her was short but the best days of my life.

There was this another person. A friend I guess. He stood by me till the end. But I guess I left no stone unturned to annoy him and now I miss him too. This is a hard fact to accept. Because sometimes when we miss people, our feelings could be mistaken. He was a part of the best days and together we created beautiful memories. I don’t know what stops me today to go ahead and tell him that I miss him. And when I woke up early this morning, his message on my phone left me thinking again. Why can’t he simply talk to me? Why does he have to play games? Why can’t we just laugh it off? Because I am this way, and I have always been this way. I can’t go back to say sorry even when I am, I can’t go back to say I forgive even when I had already, I can’t go back to mend when I desperately want to.

So here’s the thing I wish for, an evening with them together, were we could sit and feel nostalgic.

 

 

You need to have a Girl Friend.

At times you have to take a break and sit back and relax from the mind wrenching and taking-away-everything-from-you schedule. I am not a perfect human being and I know I suck at relationships. But I am doing alright.

I love my time I spend with my girlfriends. I don’t know why I can’t take more time out for them. Why can’t I just go ahead and meet them everyday. Probably because they are also busy in their lives. But I am happy, even if we meet once in a month or two. They make me feel special. Special in a way that I can be whatever I want to be; they won’t judge me, they won’t preach me and they will still love me.

Sometimes my heart yearns for more coffee, more talks, more lunch’s just with my girlfriends.

Days of Trouble.

It has been so many days since I wrote anything. Although I always thought of taking up the laptop and writing tits and bits, but what a shame that I was not able to pen down all my varied thoughts in the past month and above.

So where do I begin from? I changed my job; which is a good and a bad news. Good because I got rid of my last manager 😛 and bad because now I am supposed to work my ass off at my new workplace. Well, I guess you now have an idea why the subject states ‘Days of Trouble’. Anyway, it’s just one of the troubles.

My mind or to be very specific everyone other person’s mind is a wanderer and I do not blame it if it made me go through extensive thought processes in the past month. I fought with my mother again and you must be aware of the subject (refer my first post 😉 ). Although this time it was a bit messy. Now the worst part is I doubt my own decisions sometimes.

My roommate betrayed me and she left the room and I had to pay the double amount as my rent 😦 .I didn’t find any other roommate for a month and had to make a tough decision to leave this flat. Trust me, finding a new room which also caters to my pet’s need is not an easy job. I haven’t found any flat yet and still not initiated my search. Getting homeless next month is a dreadful thought.

I booked a new car and because it’s my LUCKY month the manufacturing plant went on fire. 😦 Now I have to wait for a month to get my car. Sad, isn’t it?

What is this thing about cooking? Why is it a pre-defined notion that women of the house need to cook. What if cooking is not my passion? What if I don’t want to cook? Why are women only supposed to cook? Why can’t men cook? What do I do if my boyfriend has become alcoholic? and stubborn? and the biggest idiot? Should I still take a stand for him or just ditch him?

Valar Morghulis.

Those were enough troubles for just one post.

XOXO.
