We all blame life that things keep on changing and that, nothing stays on forever. But what we don’t get is, life isn’t the factor that changes, but it’s we who change overselves and doesn’t stay constant in one decision. We don’t stand strong on decisions irrespective of whatever the conditions are.
The type of book doesn’t matter.
The genre of the book doesn’t matter.
The time of reading doesn’t matter.
As long as I curl up, alone, with a book in my hand, I feel complete.
It may seem a bit of exaggeration to some. But, for me, Books complete me.
The feel of the book in my hand,
The scratchy noise of the pages turning in the silent room,
The play of the words before my eyes, and
The play of the scene in my mind,
Getting transported to a parallel dimension
Where only me and my book exist.
Books are what I call, ‘My Solace’.
If I could keep on writing about my love for books, I could go on forever.That is when I realized that nothing could ever take the place of books in my life. Not a person, not a thing. The loving feeling that fills up my heart at the mention of books, you could think that I’m actually talking about a person! In fact, the passion that I get towards books feels like a personification of an actual person.
Books are what, that made me go through life, and
Books are what, I will live for.
The moment we start giving fodder to our ego is the moment when it starts living off us. When we give importance to your ego in our life, then it is given that our life will lose its beauty and spark.
‘Best Kept Secret’, by Jeffrey Archer was one of the recent books that I laid my hands on, and to say, it kept me hooked till the end, would be underestimating. This is the third book in the line of the Clifton series, but if you would choose to read it as a standalone copy, it would definitely make sense. You don’t need to have to have prior knowledge of the series from the start, though some references in the start of the book, about the book would be from the previous series.
At first, it felt a little bit more as many characters were introduced simultaneously, but as the story progressed, it was very natural to comprehend and go with the flow of the story without any hiccups. The Barringtons’ and the Cliftons’ family and the commitment of each of them towards the family is so perfect. Instead of taking only a lead role and following their life story like the general kind of books, the life of each and every member is described, the happenings in their life and how they are interconnected, is carefully and clearly plotted, so as not to confuse the readers with the characters.
The man, Jeffrey Archer, sure knows the way to retain the readers’ interest till the end, and as usual captivates the readers with his writing. As a person who read it as a standalone book, I would like to say that, don’t just stop yourselves that you hadn’t read the previous ones, because this is, again, one of the best writing from the best-selling author. 🙂
Be tuned for the upcoming posts to read more about the recent books I’m burying my face into! 😀
Its worse for people to get hurt without knowing that its going to happen, but even worse when some get into it, fully having knowledge that they are eventually going to get hurt.
Perseverance, the time when we use our free will, to work against all hardships posed against us, even though we don’t have anyone to support us in our endeavors.
When we say, we ‘Compromise’, do we really put our whole heart into it?
We don’t compromise for us, do we?
We compromise for a person, or a situation, or a feeling. But deep down we all know that we don’t want to do it.
