Hello 2016!

One day into the new year, I am a tad bit late in the “welcome 2016” posts!

I don’t really have a great new year celebration. This 31st Dec was no different. My dad brought dinner, my sister made some quick baking Oreo cake and we watched the year’s highlights till midnight. We wished each other, I took out my phone and WhatsApped everyone my wishes and went to sleep! It didn’t really feel like anything great or grand either. Maybe because unlike 2014, 2015 went by too quickly and in a very routine manner (home-college-home routine) and it hasn’t yet really sunk in that 2015 is now a past year!  (more…)

She never expects to become Po’s friend.

She never expects to learn a new truth about her own Grace – or about a terrible secret that lies hidden far away… (more…)

Review : The One

By Keira Cassonr

#3 of The Selection Series

Grade : A

Blurb :

The time has come for one winner to be crowned.

When she was chosen to compete in the Selection, America never dreamed she would find herself anywhere close to the crown—or to Prince Maxon’s heart. But as the end of the competition approaches, and the threats outside the palace walls grow more vicious, America realizes just how much she stands to lose—and how hard she’ll have to fight for the future she wants.
