"I wanted to make movies that would bring people together” . . . This book was on my TBR pile for a long time, what finally got it off my pile was Sandhya Menon's talk during the @emirateslitfest (and meeting her in REAL life !)- that the main character's dream was to become a filmmaker! (It's my dream too!) "From Twinkle, with Love", is about Twinkle who aspires to be a famous filmmaker. Twinkle is your average teenager with regular teenage problems with a hint of boy-trouble. It's a book about family, friends, and dreams.  I  thoroughly enjoyed this book, laughed a lot throughout the whole book- which was surprising. I liked the tone of the story and the characters better than When Dimple Met Rishi. Yes, it was predictable but it was a good predictable.  Friendship, loyalty and not giving up on your dreams were some of the themes amongst the story.  The novel was written in letter/blog format- Twinkle told her stories by writing to various female directors and Sahil wrote his point of view through his blog.  There were a lot of female directors which I didn't know about and learned about them thanks to Twinkle.  Sahil by far was one of my favorite characters, he was charming and super supportive of Twinkle's dreams. Twinkles' grandmother was funny, wise and loving like how all fictional grandmothers are supposed to be.  All in all, it was cute and fluffy giving you all the feels you need after a rough day! . . . That's a Russian babushka (grandmother in Russian) . . . What do you aspire to be? Or have already fulfilled that aspiration 🤔 . . . #emirateslitfest #sandhyamenon #fromtwinklewithlove #igreads #desi #bookcover #miniso #uae #dubai #dubaireads #vscofilter #bookstagrammer #bookreview #igcommunity #cutenotebook #unitedbookstagram

Cyberspace is The Blue Nowhere. It’s another edge of seat thriller by Jeffery Deaver. The story sets off at a fast pace and never slows down. An engaging plot with well developed characters and action to match, it is a well researched novel based on uncomfortable reality of electronic era - cyber crime.  Hacking or as the experts call its sinister version ‘Cracking’ is more prevalent than we know or can imagine. The best systems in the world can be cracked  and used for nefarious purposes including murders.  We can just hope that the personal information we fill in so many boxes at so many places will stay secure, and that our banks will have their systems updated to ward off cracking attacks to keep our money safe.  Few years back I had the opportunity to hear him at Emirates Festival of Literature in Dubai. It was a great experience as he’s an interesting speaker.  Jasmine in the bowl have been picked fresh, today morning, so fragrant and so soothing .. #bookreview #thriller #pageturner #murdermystery #bookstagram #theoldlibrarydubai #thebluenowhere #jefferydeaver #emirateslitfest #fiction #whsmith #simonandschuster #readersofdubai #dubaireads #cybercrime #cyberspace #booknerd #bookaddict #readingstyles #amreading #thebluenowhere #hacker #floralarrangement  #flowers #flowersandbooks

A lyrical and moving story set in Australia. I was so drawn to this book cover and when I saw it was a story about the language of flowers, I was sold! It's been so refreshing to read something a little different from a new  author @hollygoeslightly . I usually finish a book in a couple of days, but this one, I wanted to savor a couple of chapters per day. I really didn't want it to end!  What book have you enjoyed lately?  #recommendedreading #booklover #flowersofinstagram

#qotd: Do you read character driven stories with few plot twists? . I like character driven books provided they are interesting and well written. But I have come to avoid them due to recent experiences. Also if you have any character driven book that you loved, do recommend! . . I had a great time today with @khadeejakazikhanova talking about books, bookish trends, history, cultural differences and loads of other things that I don't even remember now! . We met for a coffee and ended up talking and recommending books to each other for almost 3 hours! We were even joking about how we are a "book club of two". I am so glad I met her at #emirateslitfest . . Unsurprisingly, I spoke a lot about #ghacharghochar to her, like I did on my #bookreview at my #bookblog #elgeewrites earlier this week . The book talks about a middle class Indian family that has ascended financially in the recent times and how that has affected their life styles and the choices the members make. The author made me question if staying together as a joint family or even in a relationship out of convenience and habit is worth it anymore! . . Have you read this one earlier? . . . . . . .  #dubai #dubailife #mydubai #dxb #unitedarabemirates #uae #uaeblogger #dubaiblogger #ilovedubai #mydxb #internationalbookstagrammer, #lovebooks, #bookishfeature, #foreverreading #internationalbookstagram, #nerdsofinstagram, #bookishpostlove, #bookflatlay, #booksandbeans, #paperbacks, #booksarelife,#readersofig, #totalbooknerd, #bookstagramit,
What a delight to catch up with the funny and talented and best dressed Sarah McIntyre @jabberworks at Abu Dhabi Book Fair.

@dubaieye1038fm asked the author Mathilde Loujayne to describe what Ramadan means to her in THREE words in ‘Talking of Books:  Reading for Ramadan’ podcast (link in bio). “It was really difficult for me to sum up the holy month in only three words, but what came to mind on the spot was:  1- Compassion 💕: we feel for the poor and needy by fasting, we share our meals with one another, and pay the charity ‘Zakat al-Fitr’ at the end of the month  2- Unity (in our Community) 📿: all Muslims around the world fast together, meet at the mosque at night to pray together and celebrate Eid as a community  3- Elevation of Self 🙏🏻: during this month we also strive as Muslims to better ourselves in every way possible: more charitable acts, a better character, improving our prayer.. and of course become healthier as a result of a healthy fast! The list is endless!” How would you sum up the holy month of Ramadan in ONLY THREE WORDS?

Author @leilaaboulela reading an excerpt from her latest novel Bird Summons. The story follows three Arab females as they make their way up the Scottish highlands to pay homage to lade Evelyn Cobbald - the first Muslim convert to Islam in the UK. She initially wanted to call the novel the Hoopoe - drawing her inspiration from the story of Suleman AS and the Hoopoe bird. #elif #muslimreads #emirateslitfest

Picked up Zeina Hashem Beck’s - @zeinabeck - book ‘Louder than Hearts’ @emirateslitfest in #dubai & I can finally have it signed in #dc 😊as she’s touring the US and will be appearing @middleeastinst in DC early April. : ‘Rooted in Arabic culture, Beck’s writings explore topics such as home, exile, identity, female voices & religion. She uses different languages and contexts to create poetry that is emotionally, linguistically, and musically rich and exists at the intersection of the personal and the political, the divine and the profane, the self and the other’ : ‘Louder Than Hearts’ won the 2016 May Sarton New Hampshire Poetry Prize. : : : #bookblogger #poetry #authorsigning #authorevent #dcevents #dubai #emirateslitfest #bookaddicted #arabliterature #culture #middleeast #dc

#tbt First time I and @stickythoughts_  went to the @emirateslitfest and it was a blast!  Bookish talks with @khushreads ❤️-always a pleasure ! . . .  Got to listen to Sandhya Menon's talk - main take from the talk was that don't stop yourself from writing that story, novel or poem which you've been wanting to write. Cause there'll be someone out there waiting for their/your thoughts to be conveyed. . . . . Another point to take away from the talk was that it's okay to fail... with the failure you learn and improve. . . . Can't wait to read her second and third book - something to add to my ever growing tbr pile. The covers are so tempting lol 😂. Thank youuu @marwahahmd_95 for the socks ❤️ . . . #tbt #tbrpilekeepsgrowing #sandhyamenon #whendimplemetrishi #fromtwinklewithlove #theressomethingaboutsweetie #emirateslitfest #march #socks #cutestuff #throwbackthursday #dubaireads #vscofilter #bookstagrammer #bookstagram #features

My last session of the day, and indeed of the @emirateslitfest for another year 😢, but what a fab session to end on (and the irony of this post): Why Social Media is Ruining Your Life...!!! She used terms that I didn't recognise (am I getting old??!) and although I'm obviously a big user of social media, much of what @katherine_ormerod was sharing is scary stuff....the amount of time some people (young adults usually) are spending on it is well just wrong, as well as the way they're using it!! It was certainly an eye-opener. Many thanks to Katherine of course, but also to @teamhardtalk (Dawn Metcalfe) for hosting it. #emirateslitfest #dubailitfest #ilovedubai #mydubai #socialmedia #whysocialmediaisruiningyourlife #katherineormerod #teamhardtalk
Historical fiction is my favorite reading in the genre of fiction. I love learning about history and real facts through the lense of a dramatized human life. I also love reading about the tales of the Gulf in the olden days with the life at sea and with trade at the heart of it. This is why I was drawn to this session by this well known Kuwaiti author Dr. Taleb Al Refai. ⠀ ⠀ I am so glad I went! Dr. Alrefai is a consummate storyteller with just the right twists and turns and pitch of voice and turn of the hand.⠀ ⠀ I read the first few pages and realized I am in the hands of a master of his craft. I am so looking forward to finishing 40 for @ahmadalshugairi and starting #alnajdi.⠀ ⠀ Have you read either books? I would love to hear your thoughts if you did :)⠀ ⠀ Image 1: AlNajdi (front)⠀ Image 2: AlNajdi (Back)⠀ Image 3: Ali Alnajdi lived through the hardship days of Kuwait of pearl diving and travel into its days of prosperity…always at heart a man of his beloved sea.⠀ Image 4: Dr. Rafia Ghubash the founder of Bait Al Banat The Women’s Museum in Dubai. An amazing gem in its own right!⠀ ⠀ كتب الرواية التاريخية هي أكثر أنواع الكتب الخيالية اللي بحب أقرأها. بحب أتعلم التاريخ والحقائق عن طريق قصة درامية عن إنسان عاش هدي المرحلة. كمان كتير بحب قصص الخليج العربي الحبيب في أيامه القديمة اللي كان محورها البحر والتجارة. علشان هيك طبعا محاضرة الدكتور طالب الرفاعي جذبتني.⠀ ⠀ كتير فرحت إني رحت! الدكتور طالب الرفاعي قاص متمكن يحكي التفاصيل الملفتة والمهمة ويلعب بصوته ويستخدم جسمه في إعطاء أبعاد للمعنى والمتعة.⠀ ⠀ قرأت الصفحات الأولى من الكتاب وعلى طول اتضح لي إني
