My Pick From The Most Beautiful Literary Quotes Of All Time.

Book readers and avid fans of literature are suckers for quotes. Some hold on to them forever, some, like me, tend to forget them as soon as they close the pages. Thanks to this blog, I will be able to preserve some of my most favorite quotes, which I have come across while reading or while stalking words on the internet. Take a look and tell me how many of them do you love as well!

“Sometimes we get sad about things and we don’t like to tell other people that we are sad about them. We like to keep it a secret.

The Crappiest Year In A Row

This is the crappiest year of my life. The second one in a row, and I can’t wait for it to end.

Every month of this year, I have had one sorrow-filled news. Every other month, things went awry. Every two months, I was sick to my bones. And every quarter, I was so busy, that I neglected the things I love the most – books and blogging.

As this crappy year comes to a close in another 3 months or so, I wish to have a better, if not worse year ahead. Hopefully, I will devote more time to this blog and catch up on my reading.

There are already a number of books on their way and I want to utilize my upcoming vacation for the same.

Cheers to that!
