I have always imagined that paradise would be a kind of library.

Not all books are written equal. Some are meant to be greater than others. The hardest part is figuring out which one is which.

Warning!

Everything in this blog are my opinions.

I rate books based on feeling. A book could have the greatest plot and the best writing but if it will not give me that certain feeling while reading it, I might not like it. Please be warned.

Review: Stuff I’ve Been Feeling Lately

This is not my cup of tea.

I love poetry and I’m definitely obsessed with music but this didn’t work for me.

Normally, I would finish a poetry book in one sitting or in a few days when I’m busy but this one took me TEN days. Every time I try to pick it up, I end up reading a few poems and putting it back down. More often than not, it made me really sleepy.

I expected the tracks to convey the feelings of each poem but sadly, most of them did not. I’m not saying the songs were not great. In fact, some of them were good. But do I want to listen to rap or club music along with reading poetry? No.

On Books

Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.

– John Green

His idea was still with me, because it was not a vapour sunshine could disperse, nor a sand-traced effigy storms could wash away; it was a name graven on a tablet, fated to last as long as the marble it inscribed.
