by

One of the things that makes Suits so popular is how it can appeal to every type of fan.

Adams) and Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht). Check out some of the moments where we were most envious of Mike and Harvey’s bromance.

Divergent by Veronica Roth

by

I finally read Divergent this past week. It had sat on my shelf for ages, looking at me reproachfully. I am not heavily into dystopia. I had bought this book on a whim, and that whim soon passed.

Still, I thought I should give this book a try to see how it felt.

To give you a quick summary of my thoughts, I liked the book well enough, but it wasn’t engaging enough to want me reaching out for the next book in the series.

Death Comes to Pemberley

by

I never really got the idea of reading all the various sequels/adaptations of Pride and Prejudice. Don’t get me wrong, I love the classic, and have read it multiple times. But, I was quite happy leaving Darcy and Elizabeth where they belonged. I didn’t need to read more about them.

That is, until one day I stumbled across Death comes to Pemberley by P.D. James. The book synopsis did not sound utterly ridiculous (unlike say Pride and Prejudice and Zombies), and I’ve always enjoyed James’ mysteries.

Hence my decision to read this book.

90s Music for World Music Day

by

I was driving late one night listening to music from Radio Indigo when I realized suddenly that I really miss the music from the 90s that I used to listen to back in the days when I first discovered English music.

Since good music has no expiry date and since World Music Day is here, I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite music videos that I think every 90’s kid would remember and feel super nostalgic about. Revisit that golden era with these videos!

The Constant Gardener

by

Recently, I read a Quartz article about healthcare and I was stunned by how well it summarized the healthcare problem in the world today. I wish I had the link to share with you, but I don’t. However one particular line from the article really had me nodding along with interest, especially because we recently had a health issue in our family where I felt totally gypped by the doctor and the hospital.

Keeping people healthy has no value. Making them sick does.
