Images of death and destruction in a hitherto little known corner of Europe filled our television screens in the early 1990s.  Week after week saw ever more alarming reports about the thousands of people forced to flee as the Croatian war of independence advanced on their homes. Hotel Tito is a novel about that experience […]

This miniseries adaptation of Armistead Maupin’s third “28 Babary Lane” book series entry is much stronger than its predecessor, 1998’s underwhelming “More Tales of the City.” This time, the show’s filming location of Montreal (substituting for San Francisco, which plays an integral part of the book series) isn’t as distracting thanks to the narrative’s location-hopping, […]

Now we are over halfway and deep into the Disney Renaissance, the period known for putting Disney back on the map and creating a whole new fanbase for generations to come. Being born in 1993, these films were all the rage when I was younger so they all hold a deep sentimentality as I remember […]

I enjoyed Naomi Alderman’s Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction-winning feminist dystopian novel The Power and I have recently read her 2006 debut ‘Disobedience’ which won the Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year Award and Orange Award for New Writers. It tells the story of Ronit Krushka who grew up in a strict Orthodox Jewish […]

Books are universes, and some universes just swallow you whole.. They wrap you in clothes of their own, give you a different name and introduce you to creatures of their creation. It still makes me wonder how and author manages to give birth to a world of their own imagination and make it look so […]

GOOD OMENS has been a Biblically long time coming. Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman seemed to have given up after years of false starts at adapting their 1990 fantasy novel but Pratchett’s terminal illness and Gaiman’s promise to him finally got the project off the ground. Was it worth the wait? As the tenth incarnation […]

In 1988, The Satanic Verses was published, written by Salman Rushdie (left), a British citizen. Iran’s “Supreme Leader” Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini (right) in 1989 condemned Rushdie to death for writing the book. The Rushdie affair seems to have deeply shaped British society.

I’m so happy to do this tag! That’s because I’m so proud of me…I’ve completed my Goodreads reading challenge! I’ve read more than 50 books this year already and yeah, I feel amazing! It’s not the amount of books I devoured that counts, that’s only a number and I don’t care about it. The most important thing for me it’s that I’m back doing something I love. While I was studying at the university, I paused my life in order to focus on my studies. And I was miserable, I wasn’t even aware of it. I would read only a couple of titles, it was awful; so, now I’m beyond happy that I reached this goal so early in 2019, because I NEED to read amazing stories in my life like the very air I breath! Long story short, I’m excited to talk about my 2019 readings so far with this classic book tag. Let me know about your situation in the comment ♥

Who is better to adapt Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett Good omens of Gaiman himself? The author has seen several adaptations of his novels recently, and others are in the works. But until now his first collaboration has been re-imagined on the small screen, and the Amazon miniseries is one of the most faithful adaptations […]

Lolita. I encourage you to say her name out loud. Listen to the lilt of your tongue as it rises and falls with each loving syllable. Each syllable conjures up images of sticky lollipops and lazy sunny days. Furthermore, look a tad bit closer and you will find a young girl adorned with heart-shaped sunglasses, […]
