ushering in 2011..

2010: The year that in few hours would become and remembered as a different time. This whole year, there might have been ups and downs, some memories made to savor till lifetime and some experiences to learn from. There might have been some people to be left for good while some good friends found to be beside you forever. Whatever 2010 might have been, its going now and making space for a new time to come and we can only usher it in with hope that 2011 will be blissful, rewarding and will bring happiness for all of us. So,

The Book Thief's  Review:
It’s just a small story really, about among other things: a girl, some words, an accordionist, some fanatical Germans, a Jewish fist-fighter, and quite a lot of thievery. . . .

Set during World War II in Germany, Markus Zusak’s groundbreaking new novel is the story of Liesel Meminger, a foster girl living outside of Munich. Liesel scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement before he is marched to Dachau.

This is an unforgettable story about the ability of books to feed the soul

My Review:
To say that it was 'touching' would be an understatement. It is heart wrenching at many points. The book is narrated by death and it is set in the nazi Germany. It tells the story of a girl leisel who later on acquires the title of 'the book thief'. 

It has beautiful use of words and expressions that evokes very different, moving feelings. The author has painted every character with colors of heartfelt emotions: of separation, love, achievement, sacrifice, pain and lot others.

The Bell Jar

Esther Greenwood is brilliant, beautiful, enormously talented, and successful, but slowly going under—maybe for the last time. In her acclaimed and enduring masterwork, Sylvia Plath brilliantly draws the reader into Esther's breakdown with such intensity that her insanity becomes palpably real, even rational—as accessible an experience as going to the movies. A deep penetration into the darkest and most harrowing corners of the human psyche, The Bell Jar is an extraordinary accomplishment and a haunting American classic.
-The book's review on page

All that i have to say is-
I found it a reflective read, the kind of book that you keep dwelling on even if you've put it aside for a while. it made me feel sad and depressed and yet i felt a kind of yearning to keep on reading because everything in the book seems as if its truly happening. maybe because of its bitter reality or being it 'remorseless' (as NYtimes have written).

i think i am in love with knits

Its December, mornings start with biting cold and evenings are frosty. In such a weather who wouldn't love to wrap themselves around in knits. They're so woolly, soft, comfortable (and they're in trend too). You don't believe me? take a look at these:
beautiful red scarf

cool trendy knitted cap

knits suit college nerdy look too.

nice pullover there.

Contagious (boys like girls)

Its been  a long time i posted anything, i know, (i needed to sort things out) and until i come up with something more creative, i'd like to share this song that i keep listening over and over again. it's called 'contagious' by the band 'Boys like girls'. Its the first time i've listened to the band. Needless to say i loved it.



I’m flying down the fast lane,
Doing ninety-five, ninety things on my brain.
Don’t know where the hell I'm going,
But, I'm going after you.

I’m jumping on the last train,
With the crazy kind of feeling that I can't explain.
Don’t know where the hell I'm going,
But, I'm going after you.

And I know you think I'm crazy,
And I dress up like im four,
I don't do dinner and movies,
But, if I showed up at your door.

Would you give me one more minute,
The story's far from finished,
We could fill in all the pages.
I'm feeling sick,
Girl, you're so contagious.
Just wanna say I miss you,
I caught it when I kissed you,
And I've been through all the stages.
I'm feeling sick,
Girl, you're so contagious.
I'm feeling sick,
Girl, you're so contagious.

It was raining on a Wednesday,
Doing ninety-five, ninety things left to say.
Told myself to keep on driving,
'Cause I left my heart with you.
