I was tagged by the lovely Anushka over at Going Through Books to do what looks like a chilled out and fun tag! Here we go!
REUNION OF FAMILY
Name A Book with Family Goals
I’m going to have to steal her answer and say The Weasley family. I cannot imagine a safer space to be in and with my family being so……wide apart (in different parts of the world) I miss having huge family time. Moreover, Molly is just such awesomeness.
I’ve just finished watching this and honestly, its weird man. It’s damn weird! It seems like the show writers or makes have changes the story and the characters however the hell they wanted to. And I’m betting on the fact that the show gets cancelled and fails. Not because I want it to, god knows I really needed this to be a success and for it to be brilliant. Continue reading
For those of you who follow Korean dramas, the Lets Eat series needs no introduction. It was supposed to end with season 1 but through popular demand a second season was created where the main character, Dae Young, food blogger and insurance king, moves to a new city and has to make new connections there. This season features a whole new set of actors except the main one, at the beginning through there’s a few minutes of two older side characters wondering why Dae Young moved and why he broke up with his girlfriend. This seems like a token explanation and lead into the new season which starts off randomly.
The other day a friend was telling me how she was sad that she never got into the reading habit. Her new husband was a reader and he was always talking about what he was reading with a passion that she couldn’t get on board with no matter how much she tried. His books were too dense and obscure and his sense of humour too political for it to make sense to her. So she called me up and asked me about it since, “You’re always giving excuses about books instead of having fun with us.” (in her own words).
The question got me thinking, how does one get into reading?
A man is walking down a country lane. A woman, cycling towards him, swerves to avoid a dog. On that moment, their future hinges. There are three possible outcomes, three small decisions that could determine the rest of their life.
Eva and Jim are nineteen and students at Cambridge when their paths first cross in 1958. And then there is David, Eva’s then-lover, an ambitious actor who loves Eva deeply. The Versions of Us follows the three different courses their lives could take following this first meeting. Lives filled with love, betrayal, ambition but through it all is a deep connection that endures whatever fate might throw at them.
The Versions of Us explores the idea that there are moments when our lives might have turned out differently, the tiny factors or decisions that could determine our fate, and the precarious nature of the foundations upon which we build our lives. It is also a story about the nature of love and how it grows, changes and evolves as we go through the vagaries of life.
The BooksAndSteips monthly giveaway is back and this time I’m giving away City Of Death from Juggernaut.
If you didn’t know Juggernaut has an app where you can read newly released books and upcoming books BEFORE the actual book gets released to the public. And on top of that they have regular discounts and previews of books so you can read them before you buy them.
If you’re interested you can check out my review here and download the app to see a preview of City Of Death before entering this India giveaway (you can also buy it there if you love it so much that you want to continue reading immediately).
*since there seems to be a little confusion, my giveaways are India only. Sorry. 😦
If you’re like me and you love physical books and despise eBooks you will be getting tired of shelling out money to buy the books you want. And while libraries offer some solace, not every place has free libraries. So what does one do? I’ve compiled a list of places you can get cheap or free books.
