Being Mortal by Atul Gawande – A Must Read – for Everyone!

It’s rare that I start a review with a glorious recommendation (or a complete rejection for that matter). But it’s also rare that I come across a book like Being Mortal. So let me say it straight out – this one is a must-read for everyone (yes, everyone)! Well unless you don’t know (or care […]

Jugnu – Book Review

Before I get into this review, I want to mention something about the star rating right away – this book holds the distinction of being the first indie romance to get 5 stars from me. Now don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that I haven’t ever read anything better than this. I have […]

Quarterly Goals Update (Jan – Mar 2017)

Hola folks! How have y’all been? I know, I know I have been MIA from the virtual world (and my blog) for much longer than initially announced or ever planned.  I do have a very good reason for it, but it will make for a very bleak start, so I’ll come to that later in […]

Jane Eyre – Book Review (5 stars)

When I started reading this book, I found it supremely boring (no don’t kill me yet, hold your horses), and it was a struggle to keep at it. In fact, I would have certainly DNFed it, if not for the fact that I was buddy-reading this book with Bookish Muggle, and I really did not […]

Fifty Shades Of Grey Trilogy – My Conflicting Thoughts

This is a post I have procrastinated for the longest time, as it’s been quite a while that I read this series; I guess a couple of years at-least. But now with all the hype surrounding the movie adaptation of the 2nd book, Fifty Shades Darker (which released today), I thought it is about time, I […]

If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo | Book Review

If I Was Your Girl is a prime example of book publishing done right. It’s a contemporary YA novel featuring a transgender woman as its main character, written by an author who is a transgender female herself. And if I am not wrong, so is the audio-book narrator, and the model on the cover of […]

Catch-Up Over Coffee #2 (Blog Birthday, Shanaya Tales ‘Birth Story’ + #ChattyBlogs Linky)

Hola folks! As you may have figured out from the overly long post title, this is the very first #ChattyBlogs linky, which just happens to be on the two year anniversary (or is it the birthday? 2nd birthday?) of Shanaya Tales. Speaking of which, I feel like this (the blog birthday) would be the perfect […]

Introducing: The Quarterly ‘all encompassing’ Goals Post

Hey guys! As promised, I am here with my very first all-encompassing quarterly goals post. If you haven’t read my last post, let me quickly bring you up to speed as to what these quarterly goals are all about. I picked up this goal setting/tracking system from a writer I follow on YouTube, who sets 10-20 […]

Fitness 2016: A Look Back + Fitness 2017: A Roadmap

If you have followed this blog for the last year, you have likely read my blog post(s) and endless ramble about wanting to adopt a more healthier lifestyle. The intention was there, and at the beginning, the action too, and for the first half of the year I pretty much followed through, as you saw […]
