“I didnt care why you said yes, Just that you stayed.“

A novella by one of the greatest modern author‘s, which examines the relationships between a man (with dementia) with his dead wife (who he adored), his son (who confused him), and his grandson (mutual adoration).
It handles the idea of “missing someone who is still here” with gravitas and humor.

“Your grandma always had a terrible sense of direction, She could get lost on an escalator.“

“Because the story of your life never starts at the beginning.”

This is the story of friendship between 104 year old Ona Vitkus and an 11 year old boy, but it's a joy to see it unfold, and watch how the story develops because of this relationship.
The characters in this book were good. Ona, feisty and 104 years young, Quinn the absentee father, Belle the broken and grieving mother, and the unnamed, World-record-obsessed boy.

“If it's not a hell yes, it's a no“

She gives lots of advice, useful tips and how to utilize them in a no nonsense way. This book is broken down in three sections Excuses To Let Go Of, Behaviors To Adapt, and Skills To Acquire. I enjoyed the personal experiences she shared. Her writing style and voice was fun and upbeat.

“The problem is that you're letting a short-term choice become your long-term decision“

“I've always found putting food on top of my feelings is a much more pleasant way to deal with any kind of crisis than actually, you know, dealing with the crisis.“

I liked all the stories, & love how they‘re interconnected ,how the same characters & places kept popping up. Each story is unique & yet fits together with the others.
This book explores themes of family, friendship, love, growing up, grief, anxiety,sexuality and much more.

When you play a game of thrones you win or you die.
I didnt think I would ever read this book as it is so huge.But now that I have I thank the gods(old and the new) :P
The series is undoubtedly dark. The sex scenes and violence are spread throughout the book, but it was never too much. I think it was a fair balance for the story being told.
I usually pick my favorite characters quickly, I loved Tyrion,Daenerys,Jon ,Arya & ALL the direwolves.

Codename Villanelle | Luke Jennings
Panpan

One of the rare occasions where I can say that the TV show is better than the book.

The thing that I liked about the book was Villanelle's backstory, about how she was picked by the twelve and trained for her role as a fierce assassin.

“Time can't be given. But it can be shared.”

This story is about Lou, who is self-centered and a 24/7 busy man and always needs to be at 2 places at the same time. He is not happy with his life and always wants more, but actually he forgets what he already has- family.
This book is about any everyday person living in a modern world where careers are so very important that they forget everything.

Prime numbers are what is left when you have taken all the patterns away. I think prime numbers are like life.

Little matilda is saddled with a nasty father, a fairly terrible mother and an indifferent brother.
She just wants to read. Why read when we've got the telly! Wonder her disgusting parents.

This is a book about standing up against bullies no matter who the bullies are.

"A lot of you cared, just not enough."

Through out I was secretly hoping Hannah wasn't dead, she faked her death somehow. But I knew that wasn't going to happen.
