"There are a few times in life when you leap up and the past that you'd been standing on falls away behind you, and the future you mean to land on is not yet in place, and for a moment you're suspended, knowing nothing and no one, not even yourself."
So my intention of writing this blog post was to shower myself with a little love on a public platform. I’m not the kind of person to hype myself up, but I figured, why not talk about the videos that I enjoyed making instead? It does take a lot of effort so I might as well use up the residual energy and share some introspective love. 😀
I don’t believe in divine intervention by a large margin. If that were the case, things would have been very, very different for me by now. But what I do believe is the effect of déjà vu on the human psyche. The feeling that things have happened before – that you’ve been here before and done it all.
Okay, so where did the year go? Seriously? It’s October already and I’m freaking out and I don’t know why! And I’m a little late but here I am with the October 2019 edition of the Books Releasing This Month That I’m Excited About but Probably Won’t Read Anytime Soon. Because it’s true. Books on my TBR are glaring at me right now so let’s just get on with this. 😛
You Are A Star is a book that talks about a lot of things that Bollywood is “famous” for – the power games, the actual power behind the power bosses, the struggling newcomers, casting couch, the underworld, nepotism. It shows the beauty of struggling to come up, while also showing Bollywood’s gross underbelly.
Hello everyone! I’m here today with the September 2019 edition of Books Releasing This Month That I’m Excited About but Probably Won’t Read Anytime Soon. I had to skip August because I was basically a zombie walking around, so much happening around me that I wasn’t in my head at all. But I’m back now, and as way of return, here are 11 books releasing this month that have really piqued my interest.
While Jane Austen’s 'Emma' and J.R.R. Tolkien’s 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy were two of the classics that I couldn’t read more than 10 pages of, 'The Great Gatsby' is one of those that I finished last year and one that I liked. 'Three Men in a Boat' is the only other classic that I absolutely loved.
I usually write a short introduction to my book reviews, talking about how I came across this book and any personal trivia related to it. But I’m struggling to come up with a proper written introduction to this book because of how intense it is and because of how much I was and am still affected by it.
First off, I was so excited to start reading this book. I’d been waiting for it for so long that I cannot even explain how happy it made me feel to hold it and start reading. It feels surreal actually. And secondly, A Man Called Ove was part of my list of 10 Books That I Hope to Read in 2018. I can’t believe I actually finished reading it. But I do know this: Picking A Man Called Ove and reading it is one of the best decisions I made in my life.
I had requested a copy of The Man on the Middle Floor from NetGalley based solely on its cover. And I read it a long time after I got it. So long that I only hoped that it justified my faith in the unknown.
