A Court of Thorns and Roses

Okay, I seriously must admit I didn’t expect to love this series when I first opened a Court of Thorns and Roses. The heroine, Feyre, gained my affection within a few pages but as the aftermath of what she does in the very first scene takes us into a world of the High Fae and…

The Selection

My first read of 2019! Okay so I should have technically finished the first book of A Court of Thorns and Roses first, but the next half definitely wasn’t travel material and therefore I took The Selection by Kiera Cass with me on tour, allowing it to engage me on the flight onward as well as return….

Impossible Thought

As I was grating carrots, radishes, turnips and cheese the other day, I peered closely at the minute pieces, wondering if it was possible to recreate the carrots, radishes and turnips and cheese by locating the right pieces and joining them together again.  Can it really be done? Is it really, really possible to fix…

Day after busy day You press my head In an effort to cleanse your hands But what is used to wash away whatever is pressing your head? What is used to destroy your stress the way I destroy harmful microbes of your palms? Darling, I live for my head to be pressed But you shouldn’t…

Anyone who watches The Ellen Show must be very aware of the comic segment – Clumsy Thumbsies – where Ellen reads out text messages that are messed up by the very intelligent autocorrect on every smart phone. While I was texting my best friend, Priya Darshni, my autocorrect pitched in its brain to change the word ‘yesterday’…

When I Refused To Love You

Feels like an aeon ago Since I last saw you Your hair is longer Your eyes speak another language Those clothes are new to your wardrobe The tone of your voice is new to my ears Where’s the girl I knew? Where’s the girl who isn’t impervious to constant smiles? You’re different So very different…

She Thinks

She thinks no one likes her. She thinks no one listens to her. She thinks she is of no importance. She thinks she is unattractive. She thinks she only has one friend. She thinks she’d rather throw up than talk out loud. She thinks she’d rather dive under the table than laugh out loud. She…

Flourishing In My Rebirth

The attitude of simply refusing to care about other people’s welfare is currently cornering the market of humanity. Everywhere I turn, I see betrayal in all forms of existence, sometimes offering a coating to the much stronger word – thievery. Right from the cunning fruit sellers to the bad doctors who don’t let patients approach…
