This was a random book I pulled out from the library and a fun read. A short existential love story with a literature professor as the protagonist, referencing and alluding situations to all of my favourite authors and literary pieces during my angsty late teenage years and through university from Goethe’s Sorrows of Young Werther […]

I love India, one of my first experiences with the craziness was landing in Delhi airport from Beijing six years ago and going home with someone else’s suitcase! More on those posts. A good friend of mine, Miss Anabeem made Delhi her home for a couple of years, you can read her delightful blog on Delhi , I […]

I picked up Rainbow Rowell’s book based on the review at the back of the book, but it was a pretty boring read and too literally about a landline that connected the protagonist between past and present and went no where. I had thought it’d be interesting rewinding dating pre mobile era and present day with […]

Cecelia Ahern time of my life book

I stayed up all night reading Time of my Life. It’s one of those chick lit books that keep flowing in a simple and easy narrative like your friend’s talking and it’s got all the juicy bits, so you can’t put the book down. I’m not familiar with her works, but everyone’s probably heard of […]

I’m reading alot more these days and trying to manage a book a week, back into the old bedtime habit of reading before sleep – which is another way to keep me off illuminated screens at bed time. I judged this book by its cover and thought it’d be a fun read – it’s exactly that, […]

If I were to judge a book by its cover, I wouldn’t have picked it up. However,, the title and synopsis was interesting. This suspense novel is peppered with rich historical facts of 16th century Italy, in the same genre as Donna Tartt’s novels peppered with exciting historical recreation of that era like a Ken […]

The Macau Taipa library still has no system of filing their books Charles Dickens alongside Slyvia Plath and Dickens… it’s neither time, genre or author based (like most libraries around the world it is filed with a system in alphabetical order of the author’s last name). I picked up the book by chance and based it […]

Such a poignant great read, I finished it in a couple of hours. I have been a JW fan for years and have in fact read all of her books. The first being Oranges are not the only fruits, that I related to at so many levels as an angry adolescent in my late teens… […]

I am one of those people who force themselves to finish books even if they didn’t like it because.. well maybe the plot twists and it gets better. I have to admit I really didn’t enjoy Wild by Cheryl Strayed and I didn’t finish! It started off interesting but not even half way through the […]

Another one of Donna Tartt’s brilliant reads. I’ve now read all of her three novels – all with very different plots and equally thrilling. I can’t wait for her 4th novel. Over a decade ago I read The Little Friend, then The GoldFinch two years ago and picked this up at the library last month […]
