Hi everyone, as promised, I am back with my first Quarterly Goals post of 2018. In case you are new to my blog or this segment, here’s a quick summary of what this Quarterly Goals series is about – Every quarter, I set between 10-20 goals for myself (which span several areas of my life) […]

The Wife Between Us – A Psychological Suspense/Thriller You Do Not Want to Miss!

Have you ever read blurbs that have compelled you to read the book? I have, many many times. And in my experience I’ve found that more often than not, these books have a hard time living up to their great blurbs. But then there are wonderful exceptions like The Wife Between Us, which not only […]

The Checklist Manifesto by Atul Gawande | Book Review

I’m a compulsive list maker. I make lists for everything, and anything. In-fact I am fast approaching the point where I might need a list to keep track of all my lists (not kidding). Which is to say that, at-least as far as I am concerned, Mr. Gawande was preaching to the choir with this […]

Reading Goals for 2017 – An Update

Hello folks, it’s the last few days of the year, so it’s about time to review the reading goals I had set for 2017. To begin with, I must say that I had a decent reading year, not as great as 2016, but not bad either. I had 5 goals that I intended to work towards, […]

Quarterly Goals Update + Food Blog Sneak Peek #ChattyBlogs December Linky

I know this is like a super-delayed 3rd quarter update, considering that we are pretty much at the end of the 4th and final quarter of the year, but I just had to put this out there before the end of this year, so that I can start 2018 with a clean slate, and not […]

10 Gulab Jamuns by Sandhya Acharya | Book Review

I read a lot of children’s books, on a daily basis actually, as it’s part of my nightly ritual with my son. But I rarely review them, because frankly I just have no time to review any more books than I already do. However this is one book I just had to share. I first […]

Wonder by R. J. Palacio – Movie Review

It’s rare that I actually go to a theater to catch a movie these days. Even rarer that I see a movie on release day. But ever since I read the book, I knew Wonder was a tale worth making an exception for. Wonder is the story of August (Auggie) Pullman, a 10 year old […]

2 Books I Skipped to Watch Their Screen Adaptations #ChattyBlogs November Linky

I know that many book lovers consider it to be a cardinal sin to watch the screen adaptation before reading the book. However this post is not about that. It’s really about books I intentionally skipped (I am sure this sounds worse, but hear me out) for watching their screen adaptations, either because I just […]

Wonder by R. J. Palacio – Book Review

I have to admit that I normally don’t read a lot of middle grade, especially realistic fiction. If and when I do pick up middle-grade, it’s mostly fantasy, because let’s face it, there are some amazing reads in the genre. But this book piqued my curiosity, partly because of the relatively unique story line, and […]

Part Star Part Dust by L. M. Valiram – Book Review

This book. I don’t even know where to begin. But I do know that trying to capture how this book made me feel in a few words or paragraphs even, seems like a daunting task. Because after completing this book, I was kind of an emotional wreck, and I had to take some time to […]
