I’m Big, So What

I’m Big, So What is a book I’ve known about a while since I follow the author on twitter. But I never really thought of picking it up because I don’t read romances, especially Indian romances. (Not because Indian romances are in any way beneath western ones, because they have a lot of bollywood references and I just don’t watch bollywood). But after reading a few heavy books I wanted something light and fun to read and somehow, the author asked if I’d like to review her book at that time! I decided to take the plunge and here I am to review a fun little read that you can fly through in a breeze!

41uahPBAGrL._SX323_BO1,204,203,200_1. White Tears – Hari Kunzru

Carter and Seth are worlds apart – one a trust fund hipster, the other a suburban nobody – and yet they are united by a love of music. Rising fast on the New York scene, one day they stumble across an old blues song long forgotten by history – and everything starts to unravel. Carter quickly becomes obsessed with the unknown singer, drawn down a path that allows no return and Seth has no choice but to follow his friend into the darkness.
Trapped in a game he doesn’t understand, Seth plays the same cards that have been played before, says the lines exactly as they have always been spoken, acts the old familiar parts as if for the first time. He moves unsteadily across a chessboard of white and black, performer and audience, righteous and forsaken, caught between the man who makes the music and the one who calls the tune. But we have been here before, oh so many times over and the game always ends the same way . .

1467423929505123774_2178434400I have been wanting to write a book since I was 12 years old. I have written two. Both of them rejected because I wasn’t writing about what I wanted to write about. I was writing the kinds of books that I thought people would like, one about a popular rich girl who had everything except a guy and the other also about a popular rich girl who had everything except a guy. I found it so hard to finish each one because it felt unnatural. But the stories I wrote for myself were so easy to do and I enjoyed them so much. I was just sure it wouldn’t ever be accepted for publishing. So, I needed a little help. And when I saw that this book was up for review on Writersmelon, I requested it immediately.

DeathtoStock_ModernWorkshop-05

Camp Nano is coming, I have started writing my novel as have a few friends of mine. And the biggest problem I’m having is a construction going on nearby. The constant noise and dust is making me lock my windows and feel stuffy. The ideas aren’t as free flowing as I would like and I NEED something to give me a push, no, a kick, in the “write” direction. So I started browsing my app store in hopes that some sort of To Do app would threaten me into finishing my book by flashing a blinking deadline and I came across these apps instead. I hope they are as useful to you as they are to me.

I don’t think this lived up to my expectations! I did have high expectations based off the cover art but the characters and the story just didn’t do it for me. The story follows three mages as they are sent to check out some suspicious illness in a town nearby. When they get there it seems bigger than what they set out to do and the bickering students have to get along to save themselves.

Of all the comics and graphic novels I’ve read I don’t think I liked any art as much as I adored this. Seriously, if you get this for one thing, get it to see New York beautifully illustrated It is absolutely gorgeous.

new_coverDialect on the survival of a battery doll by Maxine Thompson is an important book to read right now. Not just for women, also men. This book was written to assist in individual person psychoanalysis. From the author’s experience as a woman, a domestic abuse victim, a UK civil servant (in the modern workforce where commitments are torn between work and family life), and as a result of being diagnosed with PTSD, Anxiety and Depression. It is key now, because it is an important contribution to the public discussion on mental health and work, as it provides a point of view that echoes the experience, and voice of many living in the UK at a time of uncertainty: not only as a woman, but as a domestic abuse victim, and as a former employee for the Home Office. This book was written following employment tribunal, at a time of distinct trial, and in trying to face the uncertainty of income, and the possible loss of profession. It called for a change of thinking habits, and a change in perception in order to survive.

Dangerous Games - danielle steel - CopyDangerous Games – Danielle Steel

Danielle Steel tears down the walls of power at the heart of the White House in the thrilling Dangerous Games.

Television correspondent Alix Phillips dodges bullets and breaks rules to bring the most important news to the world. With her daughter in college, and working alongside cameraman Ben Chapman, an ex-Navy Seal, Alix exhilarates in the risks and whirlwind pace of her work.

Alix starts with a nationally revered woman who may be the key to exposing frightening secrets. Olympia Foster is the fragile, reclusive widow of America’s most admired senator, who had been destined for the presidency before an assassin’s bullet felled him. Since then, Olympia has found emotional support in Clark, who once wanted her as his wife and now stands as her protector and confidant. When Alix begins to dig deeper, federal agents pick up the trail. Then the threats begin.

As the stakes rise in this dangerous game, Alix needs Ben’s help as never before. Soon they realize they are grappling with an adversary far more sinister than they had imagined . . .
