What matters to you the most and why?

I have been struggling with a bad case of writer’s block for a while now and I think I sort of know the reasons behind it. I might make a post out of it in the near future.

A few months ago I had to answer some questions for an application which I now feel make a good post for this blog in the meantime.

THE PERFECT NEW YEAR?

New year, new beginnings, new resolutions and the new same old me.

New Years is that special occasion that brings out two kinds of people on social media. The motivators who will fill your feed with encouraging hogwash of how this will be your year and the others whose sole purpose is to show you that they have it all sorted, whether it is their life or the new year’s party.

I am neither of these people.

OUT STEALING HORSES BY PER PETTERSON: REVIEW

As any other avid reader seeking to expand and push themselves literarily, I decided to make it a point to pick and read random books I hadn’t heard about before. Out stealing horses definitely fit the purpose. I saw this copy at a recent book fair. It was the title and the mention of two awards that it won on the cover that sparked my interest.

Yes, it was a challenging read but in the most enthralling of ways.  Continue reading “1984 BY GEORGE ORWELL: REVIEW”

CURIOUS MUSINGS FROM RANDOM QUOTES: PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER

“WE ALL ACCEPT THE LOVE WE THINK WE DESERVE.”

                                                                                                                          – PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER

Perks of being a wallflower, a coming of age movie based off the book by the same name, is perhaps one of the few novels/movies that can put John Green to shame in the business of Tumblrish quotes.  As someone who steered clear of John Green novels after getting the impression that they might be entirely famous for their notably poetic quotes (yes I’m one of those annoying pretentious ones who at times judge books without reading them first but in my defense, I was bombarded with the company of John Green fangirls obsessing over his quotes during my school years), I was a little wary of perks of being a wallflower for the fear that it was another John Green story only this time with a different author.
