I am Back!!!!

Hello Booklovers!!!

I know it has been so long that I wrote to my blog.

Trust me guys, I was completely busy with my classes and my studies. I had to make a choice, to give 100% to my studies. Well, it is a matter of priorities.

After considering for so long, I decided to give a small break for blogging and reading. There are a few books with me, which I need to read and review. I am sorry to say, that the reviews will not be published on time as agreed, but in the future I will be posting them.

My exams are due to start on the end of this moth, and afterwards I will try my best to post as much as I can.

I am hoping to write soon with more book reviews, and thank you for being with me through out

Love

XOXOX

How to Be a Bawse by Lilly Singh

31202835 From actress, comedian, and YouTube sensation Lilly Singh (aka ||Superwoman||) comes the definitive guide to being a bawse—a person who exudes confidence, reaches goals, gets hurt efficiently, and smiles genuinely because they’ve fought through it all and made it out the other side.

Told in her hilarious, bold voice that’s inspired over nine million fans, and using stories from her own life to illustrate her message, Lilly proves that there are no shortcuts to success.

WARNING: This book does not include hopeful thoughts, lucky charms, and cute quotes. That’s because success, happiness, and everything else you want in life needs to be fought for—not wished for. In Lilly’s world, there are no escalators, only stairs. Get ready to climb. (from Goodreads)

Milk of the Moon by Sen Rajah – Book Review

Hello Booklovers!!!

I was able to yet, complete another fascinating book. Here is my review;

Thanking the author Sen Rajah for sending me a digital copy of the book, in exchange for an honest review.

42303954

Synopsis

“Unlike anything you have experienced this year, truly unique.”

In the midst of an existential crisis, poet and author, Sen Rajah stumbles blindly and emotionally empty into the world of Milk of the Moon. At a point when he has almost entirely lost any sense of self, this bright, young, tragic girl whispers her stories to him, weaving a tale as melodious as it is sad. Through her visits and comfort Rajah finds his way back, unfortunately by the time he recovers Milk is gone, leaving behind only fragments of her story.

The exhibition contained within these pages is part memoir, part poetry and part something entirely new. It explores themes of otherness and rootlessness, the colonialism of language and many more themes associated with being “a person without a country”. Each piece resonates with feeling, abstract and allusive, they beckon you to engage, not just to observe, but immerse yourself and read the artist, for as Milk of the Moon says, “only in the act of interpretation do any of us exist.” (from Goodreads)

My Review

It was rather difficult for me to gather my thoughts to write a cohesive review about the book, since it was my very first experience in reading such a strange, beautiful yet fascinating piece of work. It can be called as a collection of abstract ideas written in the form of poetry to grasp hold of the reader’s mind.

The story has its very own weirdness filled with darkness and violence. Each word carries the above and it is out of a traditional read. You feel that you are simply walking along someones dreams.

Each and every word of the book should be experienced, not just simply read as mere words. As readers, we should be able to understand the abstract ideas of the author.

The high quality of writing by Sen Rajah is highlighted through metaphors, symbols and rich language. I personally felt that, I have missed something from the idea of the story. But, I must state that it is indeed a unique piece of abstract ideas woven into a beautiful poetic format, that gives light into the darkness.

My Rating

7d23256f-ba76-4f6b-a6f1-5ee48f00ccde_1.e0c1d647ac3960bef2f123feebb15ce47d23256f-ba76-4f6b-a6f1-5ee48f00ccde_1.e0c1d647ac3960bef2f123feebb15ce47d23256f-ba76-4f6b-a6f1-5ee48f00ccde_1.e0c1d647ac3960bef2f123feebb15ce47d23256f-ba76-4f6b-a6f1-5ee48f00ccde_1.e0c1d647ac3960bef2f123feebb15ce4 (4/5) Exceptional

 

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading abstract ideas.
