Top Ten Tuesday – Ten Best Sequels


Today, the bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish have asked us to list the Top Ten Best Sequels in books.

Finally, a topic that I can whole-heartedly enter into. The topics in the last couple of weeks didn’t rock my boat and I just couldn’t be bothered to take part, but awesome sequel books? there are so many that I love and want to list down here.

I always thought I’d give this movie a skip – difficult to stomach the rape and torture scenes I know will be there, but this trailer is tempting me to reconsider…

I think the trailer looks awesome, the casting inspired, am pretty sure the movie is going to be terrific. What do you think? And doesn’t the soundtrack rock?

I started exercising with baby weights of 1kg each, and it just felt so weird! Normally, I would have been able to ...

My First Tag of 2010


My reading efforts and my life in general has been pretty lacklustre of late. Nothing eventful to blog about. Couple of weeks back, the snubnose was down with pneumonia. In the ensuing worry, leave from office, and so on, I have had to do some massive catch-up with work, and it is not over yet. I ...

Year End Book Meme


I first saw this meme at Aimee's blog, which she picked up from Lorielle and I think it's a nice way to look back at the books read during the year and try to list out THE books of the year for me. Well, here are the books that I read and absolutely loved this year. ...
