📚 Book review 📚 I picked up this one on Libby App eAudio as it sounded interesting and was very short. I haven’t actually watched any shows by Mindy (not even The Office!) so there were parts I couldn’t relate to or understand who she was talking about when she referred to her work. 📚 I would recommend this one to anyone who is a fan of Mindy or has seen her work or has some knowledge of the shows she worked on in any capacity as it would be relatable.
Hello book peeps😂 So I finally finished Red Queen by @victoriaaveyard and I am in the state of book hangover😭 I just can't move forward to read any other book because I still need to process all my emotions 🤧 courtesy of this amazing book🤣 . . I am a sucker for dystopian stories like hunger games and divergent. So when I came to know about Red Queen, I knew I needed to read it! It was hard to put down this book once I started reading it. This story is full of adventure, adrenaline and thrill! The 3 things that are the main ingredients for making a story intriguing ( in my opinion of course)😁 . . The story is about a world with two kinds of people: Red and Silver. Silvers are strong and dangerous with strange powers.Where some of the silvers can manifest water and metal, others can control fire and minds! On the contrary Reds are commoner with no powers, subject of the Silvers cruelty. But among them rises an exception: Mare. A girl who is a Red but has a Silver power and she threatens the existence of Silver's rule . . If you are a fan of books like hunger games and divergent you will surely love this one too! Although I have only read the first part I can't wait to read Glass Sword the 2nd part! . . Also I love the book cover 😍 . 🍀 #qotd: what is your favorite book with an interesting book cover?
The little prince teaches one to look beneath the surface and probe out the true beauty in common things. Unfortunately most of us adults face trouble doing this. Maybe because we have been conditioned for so long to look at things with our eyes and never with our hearts. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry so beautifully expressed this point in this book; “ᴀɴᴅ ɴᴏᴡ ʜᴇʀᴇ ɪs ᴍʏ sᴇᴄʀᴇᴛ, ᴀ ᴠᴇʀʏ sɪᴍᴘʟᴇ sᴇᴄʀᴇᴛ: ɪᴛ ɪs ᴏɴʟʏ ᴡɪᴛʜ ᴛʜᴇ ʜᴇᴀʀᴛ ᴛʜᴀᴛ ᴏɴᴇ ᴄᴀɴ sᴇᴇ ʀɪɢʜᴛʟʏ; ᴡʜᴀᴛ ɪs ᴇssᴇɴᴛɪᴀʟ ɪs ɪɴᴠɪsɪʙʟᴇ ᴛᴏ ᴛʜᴇ ᴇʏᴇ.” What I admired throughout the book was how Saint-Exupéry wasn't afraid of suggesting the inherent sadness that our world possesses. He didn't shy away from pointing out the ever so meaningless and purposeless lives so many of us lead. “ᴘᴇᴏᴘʟᴇ ɴᴇᴠᴇʀ ʜᴀᴠᴇ ᴛʜᴇ ᴛɪᴍᴇ ᴛᴏ ᴜɴᴅᴇʀsᴛᴀɴᴅ ᴀɴʏᴛʜɪɴɢ ᴛʜᴀᴛ ɪs ᴡᴏʀᴛʜᴡʜɪʟᴇ,” ᴀ ғᴏx ʟᴀᴍᴇɴᴛs. “ᴛʜᴇʏ ʙᴜʏ ᴇᴠᴇʀʏᴛʜɪɴɢ ʀᴇᴀᴅʏ ᴍᴀᴅᴇ ɪɴ ᴛʜᴇ sʜᴏᴘs. ᴛʜᴀᴛ’s ᴡʜʏ ᴘᴇᴏᴘʟᴇ ᴅᴏɴ’ᴛ ʜᴀᴠᴇ ғʀɪᴇɴᴅs, ʙᴇᴄᴀᴜsᴇ ᴛʜᴇʏ ᴄᴀɴ’ᴛ ʙᴜʏ ғʀɪᴇɴᴅs ɪɴ ᴛʜᴇ sʜᴏᴘs.” The stories wisdom on loneliness, the hypocritical lives many of us lead and the meaning of life will forever resonate with its readers. This, supposedly a children's story, will tug at your heart and make you pine to relive your childhood again. "ᴀʟʟ ɢʀᴏᴡɴ-ᴜᴘs ᴡᴇʀᴇ ᴏɴᴄᴇ ᴄʜɪʟᴅʀᴇɴ... ʙᴜᴛ ᴏɴʟʏ ғᴇᴡ ᴏғ ᴛʜᴇᴍ ʀᴇᴍᴇᴍʙᴇʀ ɪᴛ." -Antoine de Saint-Exupéry ________________________________________________ #bookstagrammer#bookstoread#igreads#instabooks#readersofinstagram#booksofinstagram#bibliophile#bookaholic
Let's dive into the ocean of words. Let's drown in the depths of imagination. Come, come with me and we'll cross the ocean together while holding hands. Come with me and we'll fight all those who say we're not capable of anything. Come with me and we'll reach the other end of the ocean. The end which is a new beginning. Together we will enter the land of our imagination, the land of fiction, the land we read about in books, the land which was will be and has been our wonderful escape from this cruel world. It'll all be ours to live in. Come with me and we'll achieve all we ever wanted. Together while holding hands. ~ SS Hello you people 👋 Long time, no see huh? How is this week treating you? Are you busy with other stuff or are you reading? I have hardly read 20 pages in the past three days. What about you? I've been having really busy days. Just a little update on what's going on: So basically, my dad starting taking me and my brother to his office everyday at 9 or sometimes 10 a.m in the morning. We're doing sort of an internship at his office. I have been writing content for his website and just doing some other things but ahh I'm always so tired by the end of the day. We get home after 8 or 9 and there's no 'natural' light in which I can click some photos so it's just really difficult to post and communicate with you guys. Honestly, I feel like my day isn't complete unless I post something or talk to any of you or literally anything related to this blog. When I started this account I had no idea that one day it was gonna be such an important part of my life. I'm honestly so thankful for each and every one of you because every single person in this community is just so amazing and you all make me feel good about myself and about who I am. You guys listen to my opinions and understand them and respond to them unlike many other people and I'm so grateful for you guys. Also, I am so sorry for not being able to engage on your posts and for not interacting. I
"The greatest risk is not taking one" Everything Everything by @nicolayoon is a story of a 17 year old girl named Madeline Whittier who lives with her mom, who is a doctor. While her father and brother already died when she was 4 months old. Coming to the plot of the book, Madeline had a rare disease named as SCID (severe combined immunodeficiency) since her childhood so she os not allowed to step outside her house because that would put her life in danger. So she had spent almost 17 years of her life in her house with her mother and nurse Carla. Madeline carried on her studies through online tutoring and her books is the only world where she feels herself. Madeline's life was going smoothly but there come alot of changes when a new family shifts in the neighborhood and especially the guy named Olly. The start of Olly and Madeline's friendship is quite different yet funny when he catches Madeline keeping an eye on his all doings and one night shuts the window on her face BOOM ! And then the story accelerates where Olly and Madeline get heels high in love and start meeting each other.... but wait?? Madeline isn't allowed to step outside her house then how did they both meet each other? Or is it just online chatting changed into love?? What happens to their love story?? Does she took that risk which is the highlight of this book?? 🤔 Or does she let Olly go away?? . For this you have to read the book 😁 and let me know.😋💜 Also, it took 3.5 hours for me to read the whole book so it won't take much of your time😉 . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #bookstagrampk#bookreview#everythingeverything#nicolayoon#noveladdict#booksandflowers#booksandcoffee#booknerd#thebooksyard#pakistanibookbloggers#pakistanibookstagrammer#ig_features_ #dawn_dot_com #igpakistan#bookworms#bookshelves#novelistic_ #whatdabook#pakistanibloggers#bookbloggers#blogginglife#karachi#lahore#islamabad#tumblrfeeds
📖 BOOK REVIEW 📖 How It Happened begins with Dadi (grandmother), who prides herself on her successful arranged marriage. Infact, almost everyone in her Bandian clan has respectfully followed the tradition of an arranged marriage. Naturally, Dadi is on a super mission to quickly arrange the marriages of her precious grandchildren. However, much to Dadi’s dismay, the younger (and modern) generation of the Bandian clan has no desire in having an arranged marriage - and this is how the hilarious family drama unfolds! • • How It Happened has to be the MOST humorous and relatable book that I have read this year! It’s a compelling fiction that accurately (and comically) depicts arranged marriages, wedding planning, family rivalry and intergenerational conflict within the modern Pakistani culture. I was laughing throughout the entire book because the characters reminded me of so many people I know! I told my mum that she HAS to read this book so we can discuss it together (thankfully she agreed). Just a heads up that for any non South Asian readers, this book may be slightly confusing at times because the author assumes the reader is already familiar with the Pakistani culture and slangs. My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 • • Ayesha At Last is a light hearted, Muslim rom-com loosely based on Prejudice and the Prejudice. It mainly revolves around Ayesha, a career oriented teacher (and part time poet) with modern views towards love and marriage. Whilst performing a poem, Ayesha meets Khalid, an awkward and judgemental e-commerce manager with conservative views towards marriage. As with any Shakespeare related writing, there is a case of mistaken identity, several misunderstandings, love, passion and prejudice. Overall, this was a refreshing and enjoyable book to read. I now feel like re-reading Pride and the Prejudice (even though I’m not a huge fan of classics)! My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
Hellllloooo TABers! Howdy do? I'm fit and of course FAT. Now you must be thinking that why is she posting an old photo from her feed? What's the purpose? She's so lazy, couldn't even take a new photo even when she posts once in a blue moon. I get it. Even I would judge me like this for posting so less. But anyways, this is not the case (at least not this time 🙊). What you see before your eyes is an old photo from my feed. You might ask why? Let me tell you. This is a beginning of a new journey. I hereby announce the commencement of my very own and one-of-a-kind hashtag. I present to you *drumrolls* 🥁 #recreatingfaves . . . What is recreatingfaves? I have created this hashtag to give a personalized touch to shout outs and introducing your favorite bookstagrammer (or any other blogger/influencer) to your followers. I have posted the first photo of this hashtag which is of course from my own account (kiun k main apni favorite hun 🌚). What I'll be doing is that I'll be posting one photo from my favorite bookstagrammers during the month of July (I will keep on using the hashtag ocassionally afterwards, too). . . . My motive is to only introduce new talent to you guys and because I love these accounts I'd like you all to know them as well. I'd like to clear one thing before I start this hashtag. The purpose of my hashtag is to NOT degrade anyone or in any way show that I can capture a better photo than them. I follow these accounts and I love their content with all my heart. Their content has inspired me and due to that I will be #recreating them and NOT #reimagining them. You're all invited to use the hashtag and introduce your favourites to us all (include me if you like 🌚).
Its 2 am and I can't sleep. Some times it's just hard to quieten the voices in your head and the stream of endless thoughts that just won't stop. One after the other they come, dragging you into the dark abyss of desolation of hopelessness. Praying to Allah to give me some clarity and peace of mind, I came across this. For surely Allah helps you in ways your mind can't possibly fathom. It's a snippet of a speech from one of my favourite people @muniba.mazari ♡This is long but I suggest you read it, it will be so worth your time. ________________________________________________ "Every time I go in public. I smile. And People asked me, ‘Don’t you get tired of smiling all the time’ What’s the secret. I always say one thing. I have stopped worrying about the things that I have lost, people I have lost. Things and people who were meant to be with me are with me. And sometimes somebody’s absence makes you a better person. Cherish their absence. It's always a blessing. I always say that people are so lucky that even they don’t realize, you must be thinking. OK. You are lucky in what sense? Well, the breath you just took now was a blessing. Embrace it. There are so many people in the world who are dreaming to live a life that you are living right now. You have no idea. Embrace each and every breath you are taking. Celebrate your life. Live it. Don’t die before your death. We all die."
