Goodbye, 2016. Hello, 2017!
It's been a while since my last post. I feel like I've said that too many times this year. 2016 has gone by in a blur. A surreal, sadistic blur. There are tons of memes on Facebook about how much 2016 sucks, and I've got to say I agree. It's been a bad year...

Love. Pyaar. L'amour. Die Liebe. Different words, same meaning. Love.  Love has been romanticized by books and movies so much that most of us don't even know what it means anymore, myself included. Besides, I romanticize love myself, through my writing . Bu...

'My Last Love Story' by Falguni Kothari: A Book Review
I, Simeen Desai, am tired of making lemonade with the lemons life has handed me. Love is meant to heal wounds. Love was meant to make my world sparkle and spin. Love has ripped my life apart and shattered my soul. I love my husband, and he loves me. But Nir...

'Away' by Swati Hegde // Geek Poetry
Okay, first things first: I am not a poet. I've rarely ever tried poetry, and when I have, I've pretty much sucked at it. But this is an attempt, and I don't think it's complete crap, so.. here goes! Away I want to go Where I’ve never been But only dreamt o...

Happy Hunger Games (ft. Invaluable)
I remember the first time I held a copy of The Hunger Games in my hands. I'd thought then that it was just another book, something to read to while the time away. A couple of days later, after I finished reading Mockingjay , I realised that this series is s...

What's On My Playlist (May 2016)
Okay, okay, I went AWOL again on the blog. Sorry about that. Anyway, I'm back today with this month's playlist. Music has really been inspiring me to write my novel, Always You (read it on Wattpad here !), so all these songs are really important to me. Each...
