I feel guilty that haven't posted here since ages. I am actually going through a bit of a crisis with this blog. Lately I have been feeling that when I started this blog I wasn't the same person I am now. ( Who was I then?) My biggest peeve, however, is that I didn't really make any friends here.  None at all. What was the point of blogging then? Sure I came across plenty more books and got some wonderful comments on my reviews, but it still sucks that I didn't become close with a fellow blogger. Turns out I am as terrible as making friends online, as I am in real life. ( Isn't online real life?)  Nevertheless, this socially inept fool is done with her internship which kept her busy these past two months, and is ready to blog more often, more thoughtfully, and with more hope. ( Hope is the thing that lies in the feather. I shall wear them in my ear. They'll grow into the brain.) 
I haven't been able to complete my summer reading list ( What a fail! ), and neither have I read a whole lot of books this summer (:O). I did work at a publishing house though, so I forgive myself. 
Books I did read, The Fault in our Stars by John Green. I didn't really fancy it initially since it was so different from the other JG books I love and cherish and eat and drink. But it grew on me. I still like Paper Towns and Alaska more. Maybe I even like Katherines more. Nevertheless, John Green is my hero, and TFioS made me cry like an elephant ( Big Fat Tears). So overall, that was a helluva good book. 
Then I read two life-changing books. 
The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer. 
Human Croquet by Kate Atkinson. 
My heart grows quiet when I think of ways to describe them. It knows, I can't do them justice. 
Someday I'll read a book that will make me fly. (Where?) 
Till that day arrives, I'll have my imaginary friends, and I'll laugh with them and smell their hair and bite them and they shall be creatures and beasts and water and forests. 
My love to everyone.

Top Ten Favorite Quotes From Books

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

“A single metaphor can give birth to love.” 
― Milan KunderaThe Unbearable Lightness of Being

“You don’t know what goes on in anyone’s life but your own. And when you mess with one part of a person’s life, you’re not messing with just that part. Unfortunately, you can’t be that precise and selective. When you mess with one part of a person’s life, you’re messing with their entire life. Everything. . . affects everything.”
― Jay Asher, Thirteen Reasons Why

“Death must be so beautiful. To lie in the soft brown earth, with the grasses waving above one's head, and listen to silence. To have no yesterday, and no to-morrow. To forget time, to forgive life, to be at peace.” 
― Sylvia PlathThe Bell Jar

“Madness is too glamorous a term to convey what happens to most people who are losing their minds. That word is too exciting, too literary, too interesting in its connotations, to convey the boredom, the slowness, the dreariness, the dampness of depression…depression is pure dullness, tedium straight up. Depression is, especially these days, an overused term to be sure, but never one associated with anything wild, anything about dancing all night with a lampshade on your head and then going home and killing yourself…The word madness allows its users to celebrate the pain of its sufferers, to forget that underneath all the acting-out and quests for fabulousness and fine poetry, there is a person in huge amounts of dull, ugly agony...Remember that when you’re at the point at which you’re doing something as desperate and violent as sticking your head in an oven, it is only because the life that preceded this act felt even worse. Think about living in depression from moment to moment, and know it is not worth any of the great art that comes as its by-product.” 
― Elizabeth WurtzelProzac Nation

“Only a fool is not afraid.” 
― Madeleine L'EngleA Wrinkle in Time

“What a treacherous thing to believe that a person is more than a person.” 
― John GreenPaper Towns

“Did you know that for pretty much the entire history of the human species, the average life span was less than thirty years? You could count on ten years or so of real adulthood, right? There was no planning for retirement, There was no planning for a career. There was no planning. No time for plannning. No time for a future. But then the life spans started getting longer, and people started having more and more future. And now life has become the future. Every moment of your life is lived for the future--you go to high school so you can go to college so you can get a good job so you can get a nice house so you can afford to send your kids to college so they can get a good job so they can get a nice house so they can afford to send their kids to college.” 
― John GreenPaper Towns

“Self-defense is an act that implies you have something valuable to defend. After the instinct, you begin to wonder. What, specifically, was I aiming to save? What, beyond instinct, makes life worth saving?” 
― Emily ArsenaultThe Broken Teaglass

“Some people turn sad awfully young. No special reason, it seems, but they seem almost to be born that way. They bruise easier, tire faster, cry quicker, remember longer and, as I say, get sadder younger than anyone else in the world. I know, for I'm one of them.” 
― Ray BradburyDandelion Wine

“Resist much. Obey little.” 
― Walt Whitman

Going Bovine by Libba Bray

Can Cameron find what he’s looking for?
All 16-year-old Cameron wants is to get through high school—and life in general—with a minimum of effort. It’s not a lot to ask. But that’s before he’s given some bad news: he’s sick and he’s going to die. Which totally sucks. Hope arrives in the winged form of Dulcie, a loopy punk angel/possible hallucination with a bad sugar habit. She tells Cam there is a cure—if he’s willing to go in search of it. With the help of a death-obsessed, video-gaming dwarf and a yard gnome, Cam sets off on the mother of all road trips through a twisted America into the heart of what matters most.

 Going Bovine was like a drunken teenager. Crazy, reckless, fun, shockingly poignant and above all, undeniably unreliable.
Cameron is a slacker/stoner. I loved his character. I could totally relate to it. He was very Holden Caulfield-esque. Cameron basically doesn’t like anything. At all. His parents live a dull life. His dad is possibly cheating on his mom. His sister is a pod person (Read: Cheerleader) who is dating the quarterback or something like that. His best memory is when he almost died at Disneyland when he was 5 years. He loves listening to this lame Portuguese singer, just to be ironic. He sometimes hangs out in the stoner bathroom having eloquent and sensible conversation about Schrödinger's cat* and such. I’d give an inch of my hair to go to that bathroom. It sounds like a glorious place. But never mind, this is just the start of the book and it only gets better.
Cameron gets Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, which is simply mad cow disease in a human. And hence, the cover.  It's genius really. Symptoms of this disease: Hallucinations, muscle twitching.
The rest of the book Cameron is either lying on a hospital bed or on a psychedelic road trip with a paranoid dwarf who loves to swear, a punk angel, and a yard gnome who claims to be a Norse God, or possibly both. It's really upto the reader to decide what is really happening.  The road trip is eccentric, they run into a jazz musician who is supposed to be dead, mardi gras folks, dumb reality-TV obsessed teens, CHURCH OF EVERLASTING SATISFACTION AND SNACK-’N’-BOWL AKA Future serial killers, physicists on the quest to enter parallel universe and much more.
This book is very surreal, very very funny, very Alice in Wonderland meets On The Road meets Don Quixote. And mostly, it begs the question, what exactly defines reality.  Till the box is opened is Schrodinger’s cat dead or alive or both?

It's Monday! What are you reading? #5

It's Monday! What are you reading? is a weekly event hosted by the wonderful Shelia at Book Journey. It is where we share what we read this past week, what we hope to read this week…. and anything in between!

Ans. Several books, simultaneously. 

This book was The Shizz. 

Now, I don't really read non-fiction. Ever. But I came across this photo of a page in the book, and I was in love. Also, Jonathan Safran Foer is brilliant. 

Nevertheless, I doubt it's gonna turn me into a vegan or whatever. 

Herman Melville sure loved his whales. 

I didn't really love this one. The protag is a female and the main guy is not your typical John Green character. *sigh* But, maybe it gets better. 

Watch out for the reviews. Let me know what you are reading this week?

This is the Road Trip list! ^^ 

When I read Paper Towns by John Green and loved it, I realised I had barely read any books about road trips. Then I read Going Bovine and it was all kinds of awesome ( Review: ) , and so I am now gonna read a whole heap of books about road trips. 

1) On the Road  by 

Is it kind of embarrassing that I have not read this book yet? Yes. It is. And that must be changed soon. 

2)  Life of Pi by 

Okay well, accepted this is more of a sea voyage than a road trip book, but it's an exception I made for this book because it's about a Tiger. And, I have a soft corner ( Translation: Obsession) for the Felines. Not to mention, much like the time when you are on the lookout for the perfect Woody Allen meets Jesse Eisenberg meets Seth Cohen hyper intellectual, neurotic guy, but you get totally distracted by a super hot french musician; well, this is like that time. A Man Booker Prize Winner being much like a super hot musician. French one. Stupid analogy. Because  I'd totally prefer the dork. 

3) The Least Awesome book by 

I started reading. Didn't like it as much as Paper Towns or Looking for Alaska. But whatever, John Green is John Green. This book is third person though. Meh. 

4) Saving June by Hannah Harrignton

I really didn't wanna read this because I had made up my mind it was a quintessential romance book.  But then a lot of people recommended it and I heard the main guy is like a hipster-ish dude who loves Neutral Milk Hotel or something. Anyways, I remember liking the music he likes, and it is a a road trip book, and the cover isn't shabby either so whatever, I'll check it out.

Teaser Tuesday and Top Ten Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of  Should Be Reading.

My teaser:
"Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people’s hats off—then, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can." - Moby-Dick

5. Michael Moscovitz- I WANT TO MARRY+DO him

8. Harry Potter- Childhood hero.

My Summer Reading List Part 1 and thoughts on the *ahem* plagiarism debacle

Wow, the blogosphere has been pretty fucked up, huh?
So what better way to distract myself than making a summer reading list. This way I can keep the whole summer mapped out and finish off a large chunk of my to-read pile.
So here goes, 

1) Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World by 

Why it is on this list?
Kafkaesque Underworld. Surrealism. Unicorn skulls. 
Wait, I need to say that again. 
As if the book didn't have me eating out of it's palm at Kafkaesque

2) The Summer We Read Gatsby: A Novel by 


3) Suicide Notes by 

Light breezy romances are great for summer and all, BUT I NEED TO GET MY DAILY INTAKE OF DEPRESSING SUICIDAL READZ ON.

4) Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by 

Speaking of depressing as shizz but uplifting books, I am super excited about this one. I already started it and it's great so far. And I love the cover. So quirky.

5) The Boy with the Cuckoo-Clock Heart by 

But this cover is pretty fancy. 

Okay, so I noticed that almost all of the blurbs of these books describe them as "poignant". 
We are lurking into pretentious book territory.
What to do? 
Oh look, problem solved.

6)  Sixteenth Summer by 

How is that for jazzing things up? That's definitely a non-poignant book. And possibly the most summery of the bunch. 

So, now that the quintessential cheesy summer romance book has been added, the PART 1 of my Summer Reading List is done. 

The whole list is like 30 books, so I am gonna divide it into a few parts and put it up. 

And now onto the plagiarism bit,
It's wrong as hell. I get it. In the blogging world it's the shittiest thing you can do. If someone did it to me, (I mean with all this eloquent shizz I pop out here, it could happen :P), I'd be super angry too. But this, what is happening, what I am sure we are all aware is happening, it sucks. It's just sad. It's one thing to say someone did something wrong and demand an apology, it's another to rally around attacking them on every possible level and write huge posts damaging their reputation. I am not taking any sides. I just feel like some people are not so much angry at the plagiarism per se, as they are overfilled with schadenfreude. 
Well, that was my two cents on the matter. 

“What a treacherous thing to believe that a person is more than a person.”

Paper Towns by John Green

When Margo Roth Spiegelman beckons Quentin Jacobsen in the middle of the night - dressed like a ninja and plotting an ingenious campaign of revenge - he follows her. Margo's always planned extravagantly, and, until now, she's always planned solo. After a lifetime of loving Margo from afar, things are finally looking up for Q . . . until day breaks and she has vanished. Always an enigma, Margo has now become a mystery. But there are clues. And they're for Q. 
Printz Medalist John Green returns with the trademark brilliant wit and heart-stopping emotional honesty that have inspired a new generation of readers.
Published October 16th 2008 by Dutton Juvenile


1) Dear John Green,
 You had me at, “Maybe all the strings inside him broke.”

2) Meet the characters:
Quentin: Nerdy, Alternative and Hipster. Basically, every John Green character.
MaRgO:  She capitalises random letters because otherwise it’s not fair to the other letters.
She is mad as a hatter and odd as a bat.
In Ben Starling’s words,"She's the kind of person who either dies tragically at twenty-seven, like Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin, or else grows up to win, like, the first-ever Nobel Prize for Awesome."
Also, the show Revenge should drop Emily or Amanda or whatever and follow Margo because hell hath no fury like Margo scorned.
Radar: Nerdy, Obsessed with Omnictionary which is a site like Wikipedia and LOOK, IT EXISTS
 Oh, and owns the largest collection of Black Santas EVER.
Ben: Funny Ben is Funny.

3) Pop Culture references.
Example: "The last time I was this scared," Radar says, "I actually had to face a Dark Lord in order to make the world safe for wizards."
Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie and Wilco make a special musical appearance.
Also, Emily Dickinson.

4) The entire novel is weaved along with Walt Whitma’s Song of Myself from his book Leaves of Grass.

5) This book followed major themes of Perception and the Mirrors vs Windows concept.

6) Urban explorers.

7) Quentin is the book version of every character Jesse Eisenberg and Adam Brody have ever played. ( Except Zuckerberg in The Social Network. He would fit too, if he were ever so slightly dumbed down. :P ) And if nothing else, that in itself is enough for me to love the movie.

8) The novel is divided into 3 sub-parts, each providing insight into a major metaphor.
So we have The Strings, The Grass, and The Vessel.
And the only thing I like more than awkward, hyperintellectual, neurotic guys (Read: Woody Allen, Jesse Eisenberg, Adam Brody) is METAPHORS. I can eat metaphors for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

9) I loved this paragraph.
“Here’s what’s not beautiful about it: from here, you can’t see the rust or the cracked paint or whatever, but you can tell what the place really is. You see how fake it all is. It’s not even hard enough to be made out of plastic. It’s a paper town. I mean look at it, Q; look at all those cul-de-sacs, those streets that turn in on themselves, all the houses that were built to fall apart. All those paper people living in their paper houses, burning the future to stay warm. All the paper kids drinking beer some bum bought for them at the paper convenience store. Everyone demented with the mania of owning thing. All the thing paper-thin and paper-frail. And all the people, too.”

10) THE ROAD TRIP. THE BLOODY ROAD TRIP. It was all types of awesomeness and coolness and I can forever fangirl over the road trip. And honestly, it made me wonder why I haven’t read any books on road trips before. Picked up On The Road by Jack Kerouac the very next day. Any other recommendations? 

I don’t know how a book filled with pranks, clues, mystery, beer and naked graduation manages to be philosophical, but this one does.

I Am Back and Friday Follow.

Okay, so I know I was MIA for like a month or so, but that does NOT mean Blogger can go all Facebook on my ass by changing the interface COMPLETELY. 


I guess I'll just have to put on my big girl panties on and deal with it. People have had it worse. They had to run from Voldy No-Nose Lord for seven bloody years, fight in The Hunger Games whilst people with whisker's and dyed skin with gems implanted in them watched , or worse still, become a princess in an awesome funny book which Disney RUINS by making it into a lame movie where MICHAEL-FREAKING-MOSCOVITZ ISN'T EVEN THERE. And MIA ISN'T EVEN BLONDE.AND GRANDMERE ISN'T EVEN SCARY. Oh, and Boris and Tina are a no-show too. Grr, okay now I am just upset. 

So, (FINALLY) moving on, I am here to apologize for my long absence, which was because I was super busy with my exams and shit. However,it's the first day of my summer vacations and so I am back to blogging, and am gonna post several book, movies and TV Show recs soon.

Q: Fight! Fight! If you could have two fictional characters battle it out (preferably from books), who would they be and who do you think would win?
Cheshire Cat and Fat Louie. Fat Louie would just sit and laze about and be fat, while Cheshire Cat impresses with his wit and smile.
So, maybe there would be no fight. Mmmm.
How about Arnold, the pygmy puff and Pigwidgeon, the tiny cute owl?
Their fight would be all cute and adorable, like two small furballs rolling about. It would be more like a fur-fest, than a fight. 
So for reals, Gandalf and Dumbledore and I'll never know who won because I can't tell one from the other.

Also, Walt Whitman could have joined if it wasn't strictly fictional characters. 

Ho, Ho, Brandish those beards.  

Q. Book Blogger Influences: Has there been a particular 
book blogger who's influenced what you read? Share with us a review/book blog 
that convinced you to pick up a certain book.

Before I started blogging or knew that Goodreads existed, I read tons of books based on The Story Siren's reviews. Kristi just had this large number of YA books in her archive, so I used to go about leisurely through them and make a to-read list. It didn't influence my reading choice per se but when I was in the mood for YA, it helped. I still do that sometimes, like once a month or something.  Everything is just so systematic and regular in that blog. (Unlike this one :P) 
However, these days I just use Goodreads. I fucking love that site. 

Please drop by links to your answers. 

P.S- You can also follow me on Twitter for my incessant whining or on Pinterest which I LOVE LOVE LOVE and haunt regularly.!/WickedWillow666

Guest Post by Author of Freshman Year & Other Unnatural Disasters: Meredith Zeitlin

Five of My Favorite Books!

The Time-Traveler's Wife, by Audrey Niffenegger. This book is magic. It destroyed me – first, because I simply couldn't believe that the author had gotten it all to work out so perfectly. I would go flipping back to previously read scenes, thinking, “There's no way there isn't a mistake here somewhere..” but there were no mistakes. The humor in this book, the language, the images, the raw emotion, the sex, the visceral pain of loss – it's all there. I cried so hard when I got to the end (and, FYI, I almost never cry, period) that a woman on the subway asked if I needed help. This is probably the most perfect book I've ever read.
(Do not ever mention the movie of this book to me. No, I haven't seen it, and I certainly never will. There's simply no point.)

Lafcadio, The Lion Who Shot Back, by Shel Silverstein. Yes, everyone loves Uncle Shelby. But for me, this is his best book, and one I have loved for a thousand years. Go read it right now, if you haven't. It's about what it means to be human, and what it means to fit into your own skin. It's funny and strange and brilliant.

French Relations, by Fiona Walker. I bought this book at Heathrow Airport when I was 18 and wanted something juicy and fun to read for the flight back to the US. Little did I know I had stumbled on the BEST BOOK EVER. It's just everything about a fabulous chick-litty, beach read only more – fashion! Scandal! Drunken midnight romps! Misunderstandings! Puns! Horses! English people! It's like Bridget Jones if she lived in a Judith Krantz world. Seriously, I know it sounds ridiculous and very unliterary, but everyone I have ever loaned my copy to (on pain of death if it not returned, btw) has agreed. Best. Book. Ever.

Wicked, by Gregory Maguire. People who are only familiar with the (in my opinion, totally awful – and I say that as a fully-fledged and knowledgeable theatre geek, btw) musical version of this need to go buy the book AT ONCE. It's totally different. It's a political manifesto, and so complicated, so nuanced, so brutal... every time I read it I discover something I completely missed the last time. I think it's the best of his books (and I've read them all) - but that might be because it's the first one I read and I don't know if anything could compete afterwards.

The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, by Rebecca Wells. I love Rebecca Wells' writing. I love the way she makes sentences, the ways she creates characters, and the way she tells a story. Her words are delicious. Her point of view is so specific. I think she has one of the purest voices in fiction – and I love Southern fiction. The Prince of Tides was a favorite novel when I was growing up, and her stories remind of it in all the best ways. (And no, I haven't seen the movie version of this either! You can't make me!)

Meredith Zeitlin is a writer and voiceover artist who lives in Brooklyn with two adorable feline roommates. She also writes a column for Ladygunn Magazine, changes her hair color every few months, and has many fancy pairs of spectacles. 
"Freshman Year and Other Unnatural Disasters" (Putnam, March 2012) is her first novel.

Guest Post by Deborah Hopkinson, Author of Titanic: Voices From the Disaster

Last year, at the beginning of episode one of Downton Abbey, when I watched the words “April 1912” flash on the screen after the opening scene in the telegraph office, I knew exactly what had happened.  For I’d just spent the last two years immersed in that very time period, researching my new nonfiction book, Titanic: Voices from the Disaster.
            This year, of course, marks the centennial of the Titanic sinking, and thanks to Downton Abbey many more of us are revisiting Edwardian times and, of course, those beautiful clothes (at least the ones the upper class women wear; though Anna has some walking outfits I wouldn’t mind having!)      
But during the writing of Titanic: Voices from the Disaster, which draws heavily on the personal accounts of survivors, I didn’t need a costume to put me in back in time.  The heartbreaking stories and terrified words of those on the Titanic were enough to make the tragedy as vivid as a recent news report.
 “The first touch of our lifeboat on that black sea came to me as a last goodbye to life,” said a governess named Elizabeth Shutes, who, like many others, was at first reluctant to leave the ship to be lowered 70 feet to the ocean on that cold, clear night of April 15. “…and so we put off – a tiny boat on a great sea – rowed away from what had been a safe home for five days.”
Jack Thayer, only 17 at the time, was traveling with his parents. Separated from them in the ship’s final moments, he contemplated his own death. “I thought of all the good times I had had, and of the all the future pleasures I would never enjoy; of my father and mother; of my sisters and brother. I looked at myself as though from some far-off place…”  His story is made all the more poignant to know that years later he committed suicide after the death of his own son in World War II.
Titanic: Voices from the Disaster was written primarily for young readers, but, at 300 pages, it can, I hope, also appeal to adult readers wishing to revisit one of the defining events of the early 20th century, and a tragedy that still fascinates us today.  The book includes a wealth of resources, such as historical photographs, bios of passengers and crews, a timeline, and excerpts from survivor letters written aboard the Carpathia which carried the 712 survivors (out of 2,208 on board) to New York.
“I escaped in my nightdress and coat and petticoats; everything has gone,” wrote second class passenger Edwina Trout to friends. “I dare say you all have lots of sympathy for me, but believe me, I am one of the lucky ones.”
I feel lucky to have had the privilege of writing this book and getting to know some extraordinarily brave individuals.  And I look forward to sharing it with readers. 
As it happens, I have a book signing coming up to which some nearby elementary school classes have been invited; I hear the kids have been encouraged to dress in period clothing. That’s all the excuse I need: I may not be able to pull off a hat like Maggie Smith, but at least I’m getting myself a pair of lace-up boots.

Follow Friday #11

Q: What book would you love to see made into a movie or television show and do you have actors/actresses in mind to play the main characters?

Paper Towns by John Green into a TV Show because they are way awesome-r than movies.

Adam Brody as Quentin "Q" Jacobsen.
I reeeeeeealy miss Seth Cohen and Brody needs to get back in my TV Screen.

For Margo Roth Spiegelman, I honestly couldn't think of any actress. 

Maybe a cross between Kristen Stewart and Zooey Deschanel i.e Strange and sullen meets Manic Dream Pixie Girl.

Donald Glover as Marcus "Radar" Lincoln. GEEEEEEEKTASTIC!

And the effervescent Dianna Agron as Lacey Pemberton.
Because I hate what Glee is doing to Quinn Fabray and Lady Di deserves much much more. 

Book Moments: What has been your favorite moment (scene) in a book that you've read so far in 2012? Please be kind & not include spoilers.

"He looked into the water, then he looked at back at her, and simply shook his head as he raised a hand to cover his mouth. By this gesture he assumed full responsibility, but at that moment, she hated him for the inadequacy of the response. He glanced toward the basin and sighed. For a moment he thought she was about to step backward onto the vase, and he raised his hand and pointed, though he said nothing. Instead he began to unbutton his shirt. Immediately she knew what he was about. Intolerable. He had come to the house and removed his shoes and socks—well, she would show him then. She kicked off her sandals, unbuttoned her blouse and removed it, unfastened her skirt and stepped out of it and went to the basin wall. He stood with hands on his hips and stared as she climbed into the water in her underwear. Denying his help, any possibility of making amends, was his punishment. The unexpectedly freezing water that caused her to gasp was his punishment. She held her breath, and sank, leaving her hair fanned out across the surface. Drowning herself would be his punishment. When she emerged a few seconds later with a piece of pottery in each hand, he knew better than to offer to help her out of the water. The frail white nymph, from whom water cascaded far more successfully than it did from the beefy Triton, carefully placed the pieces by the vase."
