Best Friends Forever

Best Friends

I am spending the day with my best friend Rizi. We haven’t met in over four months and we don’t talk over the phone much either but right now we are talking non-stop and it feels like no time has passed between the last time I met her and today. You need friends like that in your life. People who don’t make you feel like friendship is an obligation. Though I do get annoyed because four months without seeing her face is an awful lot of time. I am lecturing her about it currently. I will go off before she starts taking it lightly. 😛

MyMissingPiece~

An Abundance of Katherines

He didn’t want it to end, because he knew the absence of her would hurt more than any breakup ever could.
But she left anyway, and he was alone in his room, searching out anagrams for mymissingpiece in a vain attempt to fall asleep.

Reader with a Stalkish Problem? o_O

Oh, I really need to share this with anyone who loves to read and would listen to me atm.

So the thing is… any time I am at the mall or I am just out and about in general and I see someone with a book I get this sudden urge to just go over to them and strike a book conversation asking them questions ranging from “is it any good?”, “how’s the plot?”, “how’s the writing?”, “should I give it a go?”, “is it worth reading/spending my time on” (because I really don’t have much to spare reading books that would disappoint me), “suggest me some books!!”, and “you have a mighty huge bag of Borders in your hand. Can I just peek in to see what books you have been purchasing?” I have refrained myself from doing the last one twice now because it is a whole new level of creepiness. Once there were these two old men who had full bags of Borders and I just wanted to know what books are they into. The second time was day before yesterday when I saw a guy in Caribou Coffee Bar with this huge book in his hand and a huger Borders bag and he was so engrossed in his book. He was almost done with it and I really wanted to ask, “Do I need this book in my life, bruh?” Thankfully my friend stopped me from doing so – four times. *You are a good friend and I love you*

I am not crazy trust me. I am just very interested in having book related conversation with strangers who would maybe be into a different kind of literature than me and can help me experience it by suggesting some really good books. It was one of my resolutions this year as well. I want to read different genre so I know which ones do I like best because so far I have just no idea.

Sadly the idea of talking to strangers is still not that acceptable here or I would have spoken to this little girl the other day at the mall, I think she was about 13 or 14, who had a copy of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones that it is one hell of a read and would ask her to make sure she has the rest of the series in hand because once she ends the first book she will go mad if she doesn’t start the second one right away. Didn’t wanted to creep the kid out so I let her be and calmed the reader in me assuring she will find it on her own, it’s okay.

Tell me guys have any of you fellow readers ever been in such a situation? Please don’t make me feel like I am the only one. I don’t want to believe I am a creep, ha.

Until next time, 🙂

Love,

Book Review, Books

Review – Life: Selected Quotations by Paulo Coelho (Book)

Life: Selected Quotations is another of Paulo Coelho’s most beloved book. It contains a number of quotes from some of Coelho’s famous works. The Zahir, Brida, The Devil and Miss Prym, Manual of The Warrior of Light, Alchemist, Maktub, The Pilgrimage, The Fifth Mountain, By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept, Eleven Minutes, and Chronicles, all make the list.

The quotes are very inspirational and do give us a bit understanding to some of the world’s reality to some extent, i.e. if a person wants to look at it with such a point of view.

The best part about this book is that it’s divided into 8 parts and the quotes are arranged according to their categories. Some of the categories are; Love, Dreams, Mystery, etc.

The cover of the book is done by a famous Norwegian artist Anne Kristin Hagesaether.

One can easily finish it within an hour and a half or they can relax and read it from time to time.

It gives you a complete sight on Coelho’s fantastic and easy way of writing. A very soothing and refreshing read. 🙂

Why Write?!

The reason why people like me need to write is so that we can put our minds at ease. We tend to live too many realities and lives parallel to our real existence and hence are bound to lose ourselves in them. This leads to us not being able to distinguish between the real one and the one we had imagined in our head or lived for someone else.

For people like me, writing is a therapy. To set aside what had been done, what we have been through or simply felt, so that it does not come back haunting us when we don’t have our guards up and take us back to the moment we are trying to forget. Or best trying to put in a picture of words so that we can let that piece rest in peace in some corner of our mind where we don’t have to visit it as often as our unconscious mind is making us to.
