Sarah tried to walk fast to catch up with Luke, who was rushing past her like there were hell hounds at his feet.

“Come on, slow down! Why are you running?”

“The movie is about to start, Sarah. You took 2 hours to get ready!”

“What’s wrong with looking good? And we have 15 minutes to get there. We don’t have to rush”, Sarah was panting now.

Getting Bashed For Not Liking An Author

You guessed what this post is about and you are right. Somebody took time out of their precious life to come at me and tell me about how I am a stupid person and how I lack good reading skills-all because I did not like an author.

So I logged into my facebook account after a long time (the posts on the page were automated from WP) and guess what greeted me? A very well thought out hate message which makes me wonder, what are these people doing with their lives? Seriously,what?

Here’s the story, I had apparently commented on a news page that was saying something about Arundati Roy’s new book. Lo and behold, it was in the 2017!

“So you’re telling me you met this guy online and you fell in love in 30 minutes?”, I asked Kate, trying to keep my mobile balanced while I took the milk carton out.

“Yes. I know it sounds kinda weird but he sounds so genuine”, Kate’s excited voice came through.

I tried not to voice my disbelief and asked in my most civil voice, ” And how old is this stranger?”

Kate hesitated this time and I knew something was off even before she whispered, “24”.

Short Story Challenge

I am making up this challenge. So the rule is to write ten short stories with the ideas mentioned below:

  1. The end of a relationship
  2. Finding a dead body/ witnesses a death
  3. Discovering a ghost
  4. Time Travel
  5. Attempted Murder
  6. Protagonist has super natural powers
  7. Retelling a portion of a myth
  8. A Sci-Fi
  9. A broken character
  10. Protagonist is evil

I accept my own challenge and will try to write up stories every Monday. I challenge all of you. You could all try this one to make up for the lack of blog ideas (which is partly why I’m doing this).

Hola You All! (Life update)

Alright, so I’ve disappeared completely in the past months and I’m so glad to finally have time for blogging.

So, in India we have this pre-med exam that’s way too competitive and this got over yesterday. I will hopefully get into a med-school (Pray for me,please). Before the pre-med, we have board exams to get through and I got my results a week ago and I got a 93.5%. I’m not sure if I should be happy I got a good score or sad because people had over-expectations for me.

Oh my god, I feel like I’m new to blogging and I’m here fumbling for words. But since this is just a life update, you’ll forgive my less than well-thought out,non-witty post.

Also, another thing I’m excited about is my new pup. I got him a month ago (He’s a month and 10 days old now) and he’s such a darling….except when he is trying to bite my finger off. He’s an indigenous breed and let me take this moment to ask my Indian readers to get indigenous breeds. They’re cute and brilliant and are dying out because even passionate dog lovers don’t want them ( not everyone, don’t get salty).

That’s it. That’s how boring my life is.

Your Favourite Blogger,

Me.

What’s up with you guys? I’d love to hear your stories!

Fantastical by Kristen Ashley cover image

Book Details

  • Title: Fantastical
  • Author: Kristen Ashley
  • Genre: Romance (PNR)
  • Theme: Multiverse
  • Series: Fantasy land #3

Summary:

Cora Goode has woken up in a fairytale world where she can understand what birds are saying to her, men ride horses and have fluffy feathers in their hats and furniture zigs, zags and whirls in miracles of construction. 

The problem is, she thinks she’s in a dream but she’s actually taken the place of the parallel universe Cora and without realizing it, our Cora does something that starts a centuries old curse that will sweep the land if she gets captured by the evil Minerva. 

At this point, her dream world becomes a nightmare. 

Luckily, hot guy, fantasyland Noctorno is there to save her from the clutches of the grotesque vickrants sent by Minerva to capture her. Unfortunately, hot guy, fantasyland Noctorno doesn’t like the Cora of his world all that much (to say the least) and he thinks our Cora is her. And no matter what our Cora says or does to try to convince him, he won’t be convinced. 

But Cora needs Tor to keep her safe and guide her through this fantastical world as she hopes one day to wake up in her not-so-great apartment in her not-so-great life in her world. The problem is, the more time she spends with the gorgeous warrior Tor, the faster she falls in love with him.
