Independence!

Coming to college was somehow not real until the very last week before I moved to Bangalore. I was really happy that I was leaving home, actually. Independence is luring before you understand how much of a utopian concept it is, isn’t it? But the last few days, it just all became clear to me….

For the love of Don! – A play review

It was an evening like any other. Watching a play with my parents was almost a bi-monthly routine for me. As I walked through the cobbled path of AOFA, I was thinking of many things, but nowhere in my mind did I have a thought that represented the magic that I saw on stage that…

The #StarbucksKolkataHype and what years of colonisation did to us!

DISCLAIMER: THIS POST IS NOT WRITTEN WITH THE INTENT TO OFFEND ANY INDIVIDUAL, COMPANY, BRAND, COUNTRY, COMMUNITY OR ETHNIC GROUPS. PLEASE READ RESPONSIBLY AND AT YOUR OWN RISK. Starbucks launched in Kolkata, the former capital of India. It is needless to say that the city went gaga over the blah American coffeehouse chain, pretty much…

My First Murakami!

It is a shameful thing to say that this is my first Murakami read! Of all the many books I have read and all the authors that I have trusted my imaginations with, not trying out one Murakami novel/short story is a very disgraceful thing (atleast that is what my bibliophile self convinced me to…

My Halloween Reading List!

I was not planning on reading a lot this Halloween because Stranger Things is coming back with a new season, but I am now. I frankly do not know why. If you know me, you know that I hate reading horror. Absolutely! But I gave a little though and I came to the conclusion that…

Why I won’t watch Game Of Thrones leaked Episodes

I just finished watching GoT S7 Episode 4: Spoils of War and I can not stop thinking about how great this episode was, but I am going to talk about something else related to the series, unfortunately. I am sure that each and every person on planet Earth is now aware that HBO was subject…

5 TV Shows That You Should Watch (Instead O f GoT S7)

DISCLAIMER: I AM GOING TO WATCH GAME OF THRONES SEASON 7! With Game Of Thrones being one of my favourite book series (A Song Of Ice and Fire) and T.V. show it is really disappointing to know that the show is no more dependent on the books by George R. R. Martin. Even though throughout…

13 Reasons Why I liked 13 Reasons Why

One of the many reasons I recently got a Netflix membership is because I wanted to watch this show that everyone, literally everyone, was talking about: “13 Reasons Why”. I will not be lying when I say that I was utterly devastated after finishing episode 13 and it took me a quite a while to…

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas Book Review

I was really into the ACOTAR series by Sarah J. Maas until I discovered her previous New York Times bestselling and multiple award winning series: Throne of Glass. I picked up the first book thanks to a fantasy loving, bibliophile friend of mine and I’m glad I did because I could not put it down…

Q&A with Amanda Callendrier

A lot of people liked the “Camino Beach” preview, so I reached out to the person behind it all, (None other than Amanda Callendrier) and here is what I received back! Hi Jishnu, Thanks again for the enthusiastic book cheerleading! I had fun answering your questions and am so pleased to be asked. Sarah would…

A Court Of Thorns And Roses by Sarah J. Maas: Book Review

Thanks to the continuous pestering of two of my very dear friends, Diya and Jahanbi, as a part of my TBR for #BorrowAThon Round Two, I ultimately finished reading A Court Of Thorns and Roses (or as fans like me call it, ACOTAR) by Sarah J. Maas. I can not wait to get into the…

#BorrowAThon Round Two: TBR

It was a very exciting week, as I got the opportunity to lay my hands on certain unreleased titles from various authors. Few of the books from this #BorrowAThon TBR are going to be unreleased books (I will include their release dates), which I will later follow up with separate reviews for each of them….
