The Fault In Our Stars – John Green

The Second Librarian

Review by : Darshana Shah

Synopsis

Despite the tumour-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.

Review

I wanted to see what all the hype was about and of course was looking for a good read when I decided to pick this one. And like most of those extremely popular books, it did not live up to the hype created around it although it did not completely disappoint. When you read a book that starts with cancer, you know that it is going to end with death, especially when even the synopsis mentions it.

Aurora Burning by Jay Kristoff, Amy Kaufman

The Second Librarian

Review of this Jay Kristoff-AmyKaufman’s latest release by Darshana Shah

*Semi-spoiler alert*

Synopsis : Our Heroes are back. Kind of.

First, the bad news: an ancient evil- you know, your standard consume-all-the-life-in-the-galaxy deal- is about to be unleashed. The good news? Squad 312 is standing by to save the day. They’ve just go to take care of a few small distractions first.

Like the clan of gremps who’d like to rearrange their favourite faces. And the cadre of illegit GIA agents with creepy flowers where their eyes used to be, who’ll stop at nothing to get their hands on Auri.

Then there’s Kal’s long lost sister, who’s not exactly happy to see her baby brother, and has a Syldrathi army at her back. With half the known galaxy on their tails, Squad 312 has never felt so wanted.

Shocking revelations, bank heists, mysterious gifts, inappropriately tight bodysuits and an epic…

Voh Din

Loved it❤

LIKHAWAT

Voh din jab stress ke matlab se the anjaan
Voh din jab zindagi jeena tha aasan
Voh din jab school se rehte hum pareshan
Aur aaj chahte he fir mile Voh din jeene ka vardaan

Voh din jab Roz kuch naya banna chahte
Voh din jab homework naa karne ke bahane hum laate
Voh din jab roz ek naya Sapna dekh paate
Aur aaj bas uss ek sapne ki talaash me shayad Sapna dekhna hi Bhul jaate

Voh din jab papa ki ungli pakad har jagah gumte
Voh din jab doremon Aur shinchan ke alawa Kisi ki naa sunte
Voh din jab sirf khushiya hi hum bunte
Aur aaj shayad Inme se hum kuch nahi chunte

Voh din bas phir se laut aaye
Voh din ki khushiya phirse hum manaaye
Voh din kaash humesha ke liye tham jaaye
Par aaj sirf VOH DIN ki yaadein dil me samaaye

Marriage- A Scared Bond Or The Means To Social Validation?

“Since how long have you known each other?” asked the neighboring aunty. “We’ve been together for six years now”, she said smiling. So, we have an excited aunty exclaiming how great that is and then comes the big question, “When are the both of you getting married?” One thing that has always baffled me about … Continue reading Marriage- A Scared Bond Or The Means To Social Validation?
