Book Review: Veronica decides to die by maestro Paulo Coelho

Veronica Decides to Die 🍂

I have previously read Paulo Coelho’s masterpiece “The Alchemist” and thoroughly enjoyed it. The Alchemist was one hell of a journey, answers to all the questions we ask ourselves. Veronica Decides to Die is on a completely different subject but her journey towards self discovery is something that only Coelho can make you understand in such an effortless way.

VDTD is Veronica’s story; a small town girl who tries to take her life by overdosing on sleeping pills and ends up in a mental asylum.

When life was slipping away (the life she desperately wanted to end) Veronica realized she wanted to live. It’s a story about her journey of self discovery, how she learns more about herself and the importance of life.

We all have a little Veronica inside ourselves, sitting in a corner of our brains, observing quietly and telling us from time to time how ordinary and unpleasant our lives are.

Few days back I was feeling low, complaining about life, in-short my inner Veronica was very active 😒 someone said to me:

“I believe that life is beautiful. There is so much in the world to do, so many people to see. Zest for life honi chahiye. Drive for life. Being alive is a miracle. Make it count. Fall in love, go through heartbreaks, make friends, lose friends, see mountains and canyons. Travel, read, discover new things, push the limit to life”.

So, I believe it’s all about positivity and perception. What you perceive becomes your reality. We should adopt positivity and optimism as a way of life. 💟

My Nominees:

Once upon a time ✨

Not every story starts with a crystal sandal, not all endings are “happily ever after”

These are the fairytales kids (particularly girls) are raised on. I myself grew up reading these beautiful tales, where all the endings were happy and in the end the prince always saved his princess.
As little girls, we absorb such ideas and let them have a subliminal effect on our tiny brains. “That the prince will save us in the end we just have to wait patiently”.
We need to change that mindset, we need to tell ourselves that the only person we need is us – our very own self.
(No! No! No! Don’t take me wrong I am no supporter of “apna khana khud garam karo”. I support the right kind of feminism).
This is the first step to a never-ending journey called ‘self-love and acceptance’.
‘Ourself’ is something we forget so easily, finding flaws in our being, taking ourselves forgranted, crying over small things, regretting even the most innocent of mistakes, anyone can break our tiny little heart…
We are not as fragile as the world portrays us. We want a prince but we don’t need one we can build our own castle.
All we need to do is start appreciating everything we have, own every single mistake (mistakes are a crucial part of our growth), fall in love with our imperfections, be (unapologetically) ourself, be kind, show the world & ourselves that how worthy we are!
Happiness is inside us, you can’t depend on someone for something that is inside you. Start a love-affair with yourself, be your first flame, give your best shot, try to make yourself happy (not at the cost of others, of course).
Hopefully 💫, one day soon InshaAllah we will learn to be happy with ourselves. How can we love someone else if we don’t love ourselves. 🕊️







Do share your thoughts 💭 fellas 🌻

Hola 🌝 readers 📖

Hola ! Today I want to talk about my reading habits, some do’s and don’ts, preferences. Actually I want to talk about book reading because I can’t tell you how much I miss reading. I’m even unable to finish my current read as I’m super duper busy in my research 🤯

* I started reading at the age of 9.
* I hated school but my love for libraries increased with every single day.
* While reading a book I cannot stop thinking about the writer. Few days back I was reading ‘The Prophet by Khalil Jibran’ & I was amazed how beautifully he constructed every sentence.
* I am extremely sensitive about my books 📖 (I have serious trust issues) I only give my books to Meher & Hirra (my bffs) They are their God mothers. 😇
* I just don’t understand how people fall asleep while reading – humari tou raaton ki nend haraam hojati hai bhai!
* I try to find more time to read out of curiosity and excitement.





QOTD: what excites you the most when you start a new book?





Book review: Dozakhnama by Rabisankar bal

“Anyone can write history. All it needs is memory. But to write a story you must have the power to dream”- Dozakhnama

You need a lot of courage and determination if you are writing a review about a book like ‘Dozakhnama’. A friend of mine suggested this book to me a long time ago but what got my attention was its title “Dozakhnama – conversation in hell” its not just a book it is a literary journey through which you will experience the culturally rich old times.

A conversation between Ghalib and Manto from (dozakh) hell. Someone who adore poetry and literature can’t ask for anything more. It was basically written in Bengali by Rabisanker Bal and translated by Arunava Sinha.

غم ہستی کا اسدؔ کس سے ہو جز مرگ علاج

شمع ہر رنگ میں جلتی ہے سحر ہوتے تک …

I am a huge Ghalib admirer so finding a new shair on every page made it more compelling for me. A part of me wanted to finish it in one night and the other one wanted to read this book forever.

An ancient history of Indian customs and traditions, from Kashi to Delhi, from Lahore to Bombay every single story was more exciting than the last one. I just couldn’t stop reading.

Dozakhnama is a blend of legendary poet Mirza Ghalib and Sadat Hassan Manto, a fearless writer who slapped society in its face with the harsh & unspoken realities.

No review can do justice to this masterpiece. I just tried to express my views. Every reader will find something to appreciate. I would recommend it to all who enjoy literature and classics.









Do you remember the first book you read ?#Sidneysheldon

When I started reading English literature, Sidney Sheldon’s “Tell me your dreams?” was my introduction to English novels and (since) then I have fallen in love with his books. He is one of the world’s most admired writer. The sense of anticipation, curiosity, exceptional research, are the requisite ingredients for the magic he creates in his books. Every book is a masterpiece from ‘Bloodline’ to ‘The Best Laid Plans’. He truly is the master of unexpected.

“I am tired of the lies & the cheating, & the broken promises that were never meant to be kept” – The Doomsday Conspiracy

“She could go from a blissful euphoria to a desperate misery she had no control over her emotions” – Tell Me Your Dreams

This book gave me goosebumps, it was a story of a woman named Ashley Patterson who was sexually abused by her father, causing her to develop split personality disorder, she was possessed by three different personalities.

With every turning page there was a new twist, something one never expected, his writing craft is so engaging that you just want to read more and more. I didn’t put down the book for a moment. It was one of the most terrific crime novel with jaw-dropping climax.

🌻Highly recommended. I loved it 💕 you will like it too.

    •Combo of four, three powder highlighters and a creamy one :

    I prefer applying it with finger tips because with brushed it’s really hard to blend.

    Beautify by Amna 24k gold serum and pro-fade Primer

    After, all the hype of beautify by Amna’s serum & primer on social media I thought I should try it too!

    I have extremely dry skin & my foundation used to look patchy and cakey even after using moisturizer. Their 24k gold serum does wonders, it is basically a father of all moisturizers, few drops of serum will leave your skin exceptionally hydrated and will leave soft radiant glow.

    As they say “it’s a crime not to prime”

    Pro fade Primer has a silky texture

    Smooth over fine lines and hide large pores

    It helps makeup to stay longer and flawless

    Enhance makeup.

    I am really impressed by their products, I am not sure about oily skin but it is an excellent choice if you have dry or normal to dry skin its perfect!

    Highly recommended 🌸
