The Girl on The Train (Book Review) – Movie Releases on October 7

I have read very few reviews, or even mentions of this book, which do not include a comparison with Gone Girl. So let me address this elephant in the room first. I haven’t read Gone Girl, though I have seen the movie (I know that is not the same thing at all), and I did […]

Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson (A ‘funny’ mental health memoir) | Book Review

It is apt that this review follows my review of Bossypants, as this was the second book that I consumed in the audio format. From my initial (relatively ignorant) POV, these two books had a lot in common. Both met my criteria for picking up audio books – Non-fiction – check Memoir – check Read […]

Bossypants by Tina Fey | Book Review (5 shining stars)

Bossypants is the first ever book I heard instead of read. It introduced me to the phenomena that is audio-books, and I am totally addicted now! It helped that this book was pretty darn awesome, but I had found a way to “read”  when I normally couldn’t (while cooking/cleaning/driving)  and I was overjoyed about the possibilities! Coming to the book – […]

What is the impact of a movie like Sairat?

If you are an Indian living in India (or not), you have seen this movie (or surely heard about it) – Sairat.* Well, unless you were living under a rock. In that case – hello, hello – welcome to our world. 🙂 (*Okay, I know – exaggeration. But it was a hugely popular movie.) Sairat is a […]

The Yoga of Max’s Discontent by Karan Bajaj | Book Review (New Release and New Favorite)

When I got offered an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) of this book to review, I was unsure if I should take it up, as it was way out of my comfort zone (so far out that I couldn’t even see my comfort zone from there!). Books on spirituality and spiritual journeys are not my thing. […]
