Halloween Read-A-Thon TBR!!

Halloween Readathon

This was created by Lauren@WonderlessReviews,so if you are interested in joining check out the original post for the details here.

So Where I live,Halloween is not celebrated.I’m sure half the people don’t even know what Halloween is.

But I LOVE Halloween.It’s such a fun festival! I love creepy things.(but I get scared too easily anyway)

However,here is my TBR!! (These gorgeous banners are made by Lauren herself)


🕸 Pretty self explanatory. There’s no “guidelines” if you think a cover is creepy for whatever reason then it counts!

See,I was not creeped out of the cover until I saw that there were people on that fricking cliff.It made my skin shiver honestly.I cant wait to read this.BWAHAHA(okay,lame)


🕸 By Supernatural or Paranormal I mean books that feature things such as: ghosts, vampires, witches, werewolves ect.

But at least I found a reason to read it now.


🕸 In my opinion people are scarier than monsters so for Horror or Thriller this means a book where real people are the ones who are causing all the scariness.

 It’s a thriller and it’s AGATHA CHRISTIE.So yeahhh.


🕸 Again, pretty self explanatory. Fun fact: the witching hour is 3am-4am, but obviously I’m not going to force you all to read at that time 😅. Unless you’re like me and have insomnia. So just read a book after the sun has set! This doesn’t have to be done in one night! You can read a book at night for the duration of the read-a-thon.

Guys,this book sounds so creepy!It follows a girl who wakes up in a coffin in  a weird place with a bunch of strangers…I’m so excited to read this at night.BWAHAHA (I did it again)


🕸 There’s two options for this challenge. You can choose TRICK and read a scary book you’ve been putting off OR you can choose TREAT and read any book you want from ANY genre (not just horrors ect.)

I choose Treat!

All I know about this book is that it’s set in WW2 and it follows Hitler’s niece who befriends a jew reporter.IT SOUNDS SO GOOD!


🕸 Read six books! Your sixth book can be any scary book you want. Only do this if you want! I know how it is to feel intimidated by read-a-thons so I really wanted to try and make this as relaxing as possible. There’s probably no way I’m going to be able to do this, but it’s fun to try!

ummm.I’m not even sure if I’ll be able to read all the books listed above much less 6 books!So I’m leaving this empty right now if I read all those books and I still got time,I’ll add another book.

That was my TBR.

Thanks to Lauren for hosting this spooky Read-A-Thon!

So,will you be joining the Read-A-Thon? What are you planning to read this october? Let me known below!

Yours truly,


Man search for meaning|Review


Image result for man's search for meaningGoodreads:

Psychiatrist Viktor Frankl’s memoir has riveted generations of readers with its descriptions of life in Nazi death camps and its lessons for spiritual survival. Between 1942 and 1945, Frankl labored in four different camps, including Auschwitz, while his parents, brother, and pregnant wife perished. Based on his own experience and the experiences of others he treated later in his practice, Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering, but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose. Frankl’s theory–known as logotherapy, from the Greek word logos (“meaning”)–holds that our primary drive in life is not pleasure, as Freud maintained, but the discovery and pursuit of what we personally find meaningful.

At the time of Frankl’s death in 1997, Man’s Search for Meaninghad sold more than 10 million copies in twenty-four languages. A 1991 reader survey for the Library of Congress that asked readers to name a “book that made a difference in your life” found Man’s Search for Meaning among the ten most influential books in America

This book surprised me and there are two very simple reasons:

a.I do not,or hardly,read a non fiction book ,a memoir or an autobiography/biography.So when I read this I began questioning my choices,or better EVERYTHING.

b.Even more shocking,I cried all through the book.

I keep myself away from motivational books and I don’t know why I do that.When I started reading this book I was expecting myself to abandon it in a few pages,but I didn’t. I kept on reading it even though it made my skin shiver and my heart ache.Is it not a little strange that you can feel so much for people you have never met or never seen?It was like I was almost there,like I could see them working in the camps with their ill and weak bodies just dragging on,clinging to life.

I was filled with despair when I read about the accounts of the camp.It was the first time I had read such a descriptive account of the sufferings of the jews and others who were in the camps.They could  not sleep,could not eat,could not do anything.They were treated like garbage.(I’m sugarcoating this post af)but this book does not only dwell on the never ending misery of the people but on so much more.As the title suggests it’s about finding meaning,even if it’s in suffering.Victor E Frankl gives illumination to human behaviour,questioning things you may have thought at nights when you couldn’t sleep.I had questions as ‘why didn’t the prisoners kill themselves?how could Hitler be this evil or how could the nazis commit a crime this horrible,how did the jews manage to live in such a condition,such a place?Why didn’t they lose hope?For what did the they live?’

I found an answer to every single one of them etched in the pages.My eyes couldn’t take the overwhelming answers and I could not believe that I had been ignorant for so long.

My favorite part of the book:
“I came to my only countryman, who was almost dying, and whose life it had been my ambition to save in spite of myself, but my comrade seemed to guess that something was wrong (perhaps I showed a little nervousness). In a tired voice he asked me, ‘You too, are getting out?’ I denied it, but I found it difficult to avoid his sad look. After my round I returned to him. Again a hopeless look greeted me and somehow I felt it to be an accusation. The unpleasant feeling that had gripped me as soon as I had told my friend I would escape with him became more intense.

Suddenly I decided to take fate into my own hands for once. I ran out of the hut and told my friend that I could not go with him. As soon as I had told him with finality that I had made up my mind to stay with my patients, the unhappy feeling left me. I did not know what the following days would bring, but I had gained an inward peace that I had never experienced before. I returned to the hut, sat down on the boards at my countryman’s feet and tried to comfort him…”

It will be painful to read this book,but in the end you’ll be glad that you did.

(Excuse me for my poor attempt to summarize my feelings because obviously I could not.)

Congratulations! 🎉 That is a huge milestone. I just stumbled upon your blog but I can already tell that it’s very well-deserved.

As for the Q&A, here are my questions:
1) On a scale of 1-10, how much do you love ice cream?
2) If you had to describe your writing style in three words, what would they be?
3) Do you want to be the very best like no one ever was?

4) What is your favorite color combination/pattern?
5) Which book did you suffer the worst book hangover from?


Imperfect,Fluent and free

No,actually.There was a phase in my life where I wanted to do my best at everything to please people.That phase is long gone and I realize that it does not matter to be good at everything and to please every damn one.What matters is that we should be happy with ourselves and  focus to be good on things we love doing.

Black and white,those green and yellows during Autumn.

The Book thief by Markus Zusak had me sobbing for days.I didn’t want to do anything.Just sat there,wept.Made people think I am nuts.


Congrats Anushka 🎉🎉 And thank you so much for the kind words ♥♥ You and your blog are so wonderful!

I’m really bad at thinking of questions, but I’ll try!! 😅

1. What are some of your favourite songs or bands?
2. What’s been the best part of blogging?

I love love love Ed Sheeran,so basically his every song is my favorite,but if I had to choose one then it would be Give me love.My favorite bands:Maroon 5,The vamps,Fifth Harmony,Little Mix,5 seconds of summer,The Script,Imagine Dragons etc.

Best part of blogging,for me,is that I can express myself to people who know and understand my rants.XD.Plus,the lovely community!

15 Bookish facts about me

I’m so tired.(I’m always tired for no reason)

I wanted to write a review about this really deep and change-the-way-you-look-at-things book I read recently but due to my laziness it has been put aside for a while.

Instead,I decided to just make a list because they always work.

Here’s a list of bookish facts about me :

  • I have not read The Mortal Instruments series yet.I can sense the frowns on your faces but yes,I made the mistake of watching the movie first and oh dear god!WHAT WAS THAT?

  • No matter what people say about John Green,I love him.Not just because of his books but because of his epic sense of humour and sarcasm which is clear in his youtube videos.

  • I hate Wuthering Heights.(Sorry If you like it)

  • I love collecting bookmarks but I rarely use them.

  • I get these random urges to either touch and pat my books or to smell them.People think I’m crazy.

  • The book that got me into reading was Alice in wonderland by Lewis Carol.

  • I live in India but I don’t read books of Indian Authors.

  • I cancel actual plans to read.

  • I read random passages from my favorite books time to time.

  • I have spoiled myself by actually googling what happens next in the book series.

  • I love Draco Malfoy.

  • My dream is to become so rich that I own a house with a giant room dedicated just to books where no one can enter without my permission.

  • I sometimes don’t do anything except read mainly to avoid making decisions and dealing with work.

  • I love Aaron Warner.

  • I love Aaron Warner.

  • I love Aaron Warner (WOAH,BIG SURPRISE!)

So basically I acted super lazy but I expect YOU not to be lazy and tell me a random bookish fact about yourself in the comments below!

See you on Sunday with a non-bookish post!



Random Musings|Chat with me!

“We all want to do something to mitigate the pain of loss or to turn grief into something positive, to find a silver lining in the clouds. But I believe there is real value in just standing there, being still, being sad.”

-John Green

Hello everyone,today is Sunday and every Sunday I write a post that is not book-related but is in fact either my thoughts on something or just a poem.Last Sunday I posted a poem –the consequences of leaving and today I thought I’ll write about something I’ve been wanting to write about for many weeks but never gotten around actually writing it because maybe I was scared of um.. putting it out.

I have never been able to express something properly by talking,I’m better at words when I’m writing it down and maybe that is one of the reasons I started blogging.I wanted to write,write about books,about people,about my personal life but I never got around to actually write something about me,not because I was afraid of sharing it with you all but because I was afraid about a family member or a friend finding this blog and reading about things I don’t talk to them about.There’s a fair chance that someone close to me is reading this right now but today,I won’t stop and care because this is my site and I’m free to write about anything or anyone.

The above mentioned John Green quote is my all time favorite not because JOHN GREEN has written it but because I agree with him and It’s beautiful.We all had a difficult time in our life at some point when it was hard to do anything except to curl up under a blanket and cry or lock ourselves in a room and ignore everything-life.The reason maybe anything small or big but then it seems like the end of the world.Maybe this was the case with my batchmate who jumped from the 3rd floor of our school in an attempt to commit suicide.He broke his leg and spine but he is still breathing.I won’t go into the depth of this matter because I feel like I don’t want to freshen up the ‘memories’ of that incident.However,as many of you know that my favorite book is All the bright places by Jennifer Niven and my favorite author is Jennifer Niven not because she wrote that book but because she is a wonderful human being,I say this because she has dealt with a lot in her life,she has lost a mother,a father and a boyfriend.She didn’t go insane or tried to kill herself,she wrote,she wrote books and I adore her for that.I,on the other hand tend to create problems and then cry about it.The worst thing is that I don’t stop,I destroy myself in every single possible way by just only thinking.Thinking about things that I was supposed to forget or things I shouldn’t even think about.

Someone once asked me why I read.I just said that I read because I love books,but I left a whole other detail.I started reading books when I was in grade 3 or 4.The first book I read was Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carol,I remember loving it and wanting to read more books.That is how I started reading but I fell in love with reading just about 1 or 2 years ago.Last year in August,I realized something and just that realization made me insane.I could’t sleep and I don’t mean it in a poetic way,I actually couldn’t sleep.A day was fine but then I found myself constantly sleep deprived.At nights I was scared and not of ghosts or goblins or witches but of dying.I know it sounds stupid but my heart beat was so fast and I was so confused that it led to me concluding that whenever I’ll close my eyes-I’ll die.Whenever I did close my eyes,I heard noises and voices of people-friends and family saying something I couldn’t understand.I used to freak out and open my eyes and find myself shivering or sweating.After a few months,it went away but then something again happened in my life that provoked my ‘night fears’,only this time it was worse.I could sleep but I had nightmares of being paralyzed and dreams of me dying.It was so so so bad that all I did was cry,I cried about everything and everyone and I was too scared to talk about it to someone.Everthing was driving me insane.The only good thing about that time of my life was that I read more than usual,in fact all I did was read.I read cute romance novels and somehow it helped me in stopping my dreams,all I did at nights was picture the cute scenes from the books I read,in my mind and drift off to sleep in hope of that someday those things will happen with me also.Again,I know stupid but it worked.Soon,I found myself watching videos of booktubers and reading book blogs,I was slipping away from what was real but I enjoyed that feeling.So the conclusion is that I read to escape,I can deal with dragons and fictional deaths but I can’t deal with making real life decisions.#Sorrynotsorry

I actually have very little idea about what I just wrote but I hope it made sense to you.Maybe you found it relatable or you thought I wrote shit,but I felt really nice writing it all down.

Chat with me about ….*awkward moment* whatever I just wrote and what did you get from it.






Harry Potter and the Cursed child|Book Talk



This is a Book talk so it will obviously contain some HUGE spoilers,so If you have not yet read the book,go read it and then come back to read this post and discuss your views with me.For now,I just want to tell you that I LOVED this book and I give it 4.5 outta 5 stars.

With that being cleared,let’s start the discussion

Harry Potter and the cursed child was crazy,RIDICULOUS at times and it even got me angry but oh my god,I loved this book so so much!There are a lot of things that in my opinion brought the book down but just to be in that world again and to read about all these characters we have lived without for years gave me so many feels and ultimately satisfied my heart.This book gave me things and moments I didn’t even knew that I wanted to read about.Since this is a discussion I feel like it’s important to talk about all the aspects of the book and the different parts of this book because oh god,so much happened in it!

I have divided this post in parts according to what I loved in this book,what made me sad,what had me crying,what was crazy and also all the plot holes.


1.Crazy is actually the best adjective to describe this book in one word.The level of madness was so high!First of all,the rumour about Scorpius being a child of Voldemort’s was seriously so stupid that If it had been true I would have thrown the book at a wall! I mean,why,WHY?? would Astoria use the time turner and go back in time just to have sex with Voldemort to get a pure blood child when she literally can do that with any other pure blood.

2.Teen Boys are stupid.When Albus and Scorpius are all like okay,yeah we’ll just steal a time turner from the minister of magic and go back in time to save ROBERT PATTINSON,That’s a piece of cake!I was shouting at their stupidity because a.They don’t know anything about how it will affect the other things which in turn can cause bigger problems in the actual timeline and b.They were making bad decisions,messing up a timeline is never good.Learn from Barry Allen.

3.The Trolley With is insane.In fact that whole scene is so disturbing that I can’t even picture that in my head.Albus and Scorpius are on the top of the train and suddenly the Trolley witch appears and she’s like “YOU’RE NOT ALLOWED TO LEAVE THE HOGWARTS EXPRESS” then’s she’s slow walking with the trolley of sweets towards them and they jump anyways,but the point was,SERIOUSLY? A FAT OLD TROLLEY WITCH IS WHAT IS SUPPOSED TO STOP CHILDREN FROM RUNNING AWAY FROM HOGWARTS EXPRESS??WHOSE IDEA WAS THIS!

4.The whole scene in the Ministry of Magic where Albus,Scorpius and Delphi have transformed into Ron,Harry and Hermione respectively and Albus/Ron is trying to stop Hermione from entering her office was nuts.To stop Hermione,Albus said “I either want a baby or a vacation” THIS CRACKED ME UP AND I WAS LAUGHING SO HARD.And then Albus kisses Hermione who is her AUNT…WHAT???? NOT COOL.CRINGE.CRINGE.CRINGE.

The bookcase part was equally nuts but I won’t talk about it because I have some issues with that scene and I can’t quite picture that scene in my head because it’s confusing and fast.


1.Scorpius was so amazing in this book,he did agree with Albus on that Time turner idea but I think he was the one to fix everything and set things right.He was funny and he was kind hearted and I loved the way he tried to get along with Rose even though she ignored him.

2.So the kids turned the events upside down which was crazy but what I loved about it was that we got to see all the characters because of that in the alternate realities.I got so emotional when Scorpius meets Snape and he tells him about everything including how Harry named his son after him and then that part where Albus tells him that he’s dead in the actual reality,but then Snape’s like “Atleast I don’t marry Ron”.OH MY GOD I LAUGHED SO HARD,THAT WAS EPIC!!.I just loved seeing Snape,it was so satisfying and I got all teary-eyed.

3.Draco Malfoy.I never hated Malfoy,quite honestly,but In this book I LOVED him.I loved how we got to see this whole other side of him,I loved his relationship with Harry-that duel was on point!Then when Ginny comes to the kitchen she’s like ‘What did I miss?’.That whole scene was really funny.While they did argue in this book,ofcourse thier fights are a classic,I loved to see them team up and work to protect thier sons.I loved how they opened up to each other and that was one of my favorite scenes in that book.Also in that conversation when Draco says:It’s lonely being a Malfoy….My heart broke.I felt so so bad for him,just ahhhhh.

4.Harry seeing his parents die was the saddest thing in the whole darn book.I cried.I had to close the book to take a deep breath cause It was so overwhelming and emotional.

5.There is a scene where Hermione,Ron,Harry,Ginny,Draco and their kids are in the time when Harry’s parents are about to be killed and Harry has to take the polyjuice potion to transform into Voldemort because Delphi has to meet him,so Hermione as usual coordinates everything and tells everyone what to do including Malfoy.There’s a line that made my heart to all sorts of crazy things,and that line is:

Draco:Hermione Granger.I’m being bossed by Hermione Granger.(He smiles) and I am quite enjoying it.

I was smiling ear to ear because that single sentence made me so fricking happy.It was so much fun to read that part!!I can’t even-!!!


1.What was up with Harry Potter in this book?

He made me really really angry when he told Albus that he wished he wasn’t his son.SINCE WHEN HARRY POTTER BECAME SO RUDE TO  SAY STUFF LIKE THAT AND THAT TOO TO HIS OWN CHILD???

I mean what Albus said had a logic.He didn’t want to be harry’s son because he has so much pressure and I understand that being Harry potter’s child is difficult but what Harry said was plain spiteful!

2.Harry insulting Minerva.

Again,how DARE he?How can he say to her that she doesn’t understand because she doesn’t have children.That is so rude and it made me really angry.I get that you’re the famous harry potter but have you forgotten who is she and how much has she dealt with!!!???

3.Where the hell were the other characters? Apart from the fact that Harry’s and Ron’s other children somehow weren’t important enough to be given a proper role in the book,where were the other side characters whom we eagerly wanted to see?Hagrid?Neville-I think we all learnt how important he is for the wizarding world but again..not important enough to be given a proper role.Luna?

Dont give excuses like ‘It was a play and it had to be short’ that doesn’t mean you’ll magically disappear important characters.


1.Someone tell me that how is it possible that Bellatrix somehow managed to have sex with Voldemort in the chaos of war and got pregnant  and had a baby without anyone even knowing it.Also,Bellatrix’s husband must have been really insane to tell her alleged daughter to go and fulfill the new Prophecy to bring back her demon father-the man whom his wife had an affair with.COOL.GREAT.AWESOME.TOTALLY LEGIT.

2.The whole concept of the time turner made very little sense.What we learnt in Prisoner of Azkaban about time turners totally opposed this new weird ones.How did Albus and Scorpius reach the Triwizard tournament exactly 5 mins before it was about to start?And I thought that to go back an hour in time you had to turn the switch or whatever of the time turner 1 time,so if they went like many years back,should’t they should have turned it many times?

Even though I did criticize this book, I loved this book a lot.I didn’t love it as much as I love the original Harry Potter Books but yes-I do really really love it,it’s definitely a new favorite.
