Reading Update 2022: My August Reads

HOW IS IT ALREADY SEPTEMBER?!? 2022 has flown by far too fast. I haven’t had enough time to do anything besides reading. Another month of not reading enough – August went by just TOO quickly for me. I read two books (again) this month instead of my target of 3 books. The only reason for…

Happy Panda Has Been Binging

I have a serious binging issue. I have been binging on so much content this past month. If you’ve read my previous posts on how I deal with anxiety, binging on content is one of the ways I escape reality. I tend to gravitate towards more mindless content since it is a mode of relaxation…

Monsoon Reads: What I Read in July

July was a hectic month for me both physically and mentally. While I finished reading my first read in the first 5 days of the month, I couldn’t find a lot of time after to read more. I’m very disappointed by how much reading I’ve gotten done in the last two months. My goal for…

Books That Got Me Out Of My Reading Slump

After having a great run in the first half of the year, I slowly got into a reading slump and ended up not reading a single book in the past 3 months. I tried to switch between 5-6 books, got physical books, tried audio books but I just couldn’t put my mind to it. With…

My June-July-August Reads

*Arghhhhhhhhhh* I have postponed writing this post for so long hoping I get back on my reading track and have a substantial post to write. The past 3 months have been hectic with work taking over my entire life. Whatever free time I do get – I spend binge watching mindless shows – as an…

Mid-Year Blog Review – 2021

I can’t believe that the first half of another year is over! Time has lost its relevance since March’2020. Half of this first half – I spent in a creative dry spell owing to my poor mental health. But I wanted to share some ups and downs of my blogging journey this year – hoping…

Sustainable Living| My Experience With Sustainable Shampoo & Conditioner

If you’ve been following me for a bit, you’ll know that I am working towards leading a more sustainable lifestyle. (If you’re new – checkout my other experiences here.) Since most of the cosmetic and FMCG brands are yet to move to more sustainable packaging – we continuously keep adding to our plastic waste everytime…

Review | The Last Queen By Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni

This month started off with travel and a lot of work. I’ve only managed to read one book so for – The Last Queen by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni. If you haven’t read Chitra’s books – I highly recommend getting your hands on The Forest of Enchantments and The Palace of Illusions. Both the books are…

Review| Firefly Lane on Netflix

I used to LOVE Katherine Heigl. At the height of her career, she had some pretty memorable rom-coms and TV shows to her credit. At some point she completely disappeared and I often wondered where and why. Seeing her again in a TV show had me pretty excited – so I spent 3-4 days and…

Book Review| The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

I can’t think of a suitable opening line to review this astounding piece of art that is the book ‘The Song of Achilles’. I am in LOVE – with the book, the story, the narration, the plot line – all of it! I haven’t been the biggest fan of mythology for most of my life…
