Most of you might already know about this online magazine because so many amazing bloggers are contributors for it, many of whom I follow. I really liked the idea of it! So I figured why the heck not and shirking the thought that I might be annoying, I sent an email asking whether I could… Continue reading I joined The Artistics!

On to the books.. Ones I've reviewed: (Click on the title links to go to my review) Remembering… Continue reading April Wrap-up!

I came across this article on the side entertainment edition of today's Times newspaper. I'm not able to find the article written by Anjali Muthanna online so I'll just quote all of it here because it basically explains everything about the hashtag. What it is: People using the hashtag #WhatYouDontSee to shed light on the not-so-well-known… Continue reading #WhatYouDontSee
Starting my audio blog and doing recordings have set off comments about how my accent isn't Indian and how it sounds fake. I haven't said anything about it until now but this morning I am feeling very strongly about it. I KNOW THAT MY ACCENT ISN'T LIKE OTHER INDIANS. I am not trying to mimic Americans or… Continue reading I am not being fake
Especially the imagery in the first few paragraphs that talks about how it feels to write.
I have a frenemy. Her name: Descriptive Writing. She is difficult to figure out, elusive and slippery, and sometimes I get the feeling that she despises me. At times she’s willing to have a heart-to-heart chat over coffee, only to rush off mid-sentence for no apparent reason. But then there are times when she bares her entire soul, crying out for a friend to listen, and I forget all about yesterday, when she mocked me as I stuttered, unable to summon one word to paint on my blank canvas.
But when I get her to talk, I savor the rush of adrenaline, the heart-pounding satisfaction, of being able to see the splashes of color begin to fill the white space, the serene and chilling sounds whizz, whirr, and whistle past my ears, the perfumes of my imagination drift into my nostrils.
And I get taken away to faraway lands, where seedy politicians…

1. Quote collection: No matter what subject your website covers, there’s a quote (or, better yet, a collection of quotes) out there that will inspire your readers. Search for “[your industry/topic] quotes” and be sure to provide proper attribution to any you wind up using on your site.
2. Image gallery: Instead of words, fill your blog posts with pictures. If your blog is personal in nature, create galleries based on your own experiences and observations. If it’s for a business website, try a “behind-the-scenes” gallery or a collection of product-related images.
3. Song round-up: Similarly, create a collection of songs that capture a mood or serve some purpose for your audience.
4. Link round-up: Link round-up is an easy way to pack your web properties full of content. In this particular iteration, gather 10 to 20 interesting industry links you’ve encountered online recently and share them with your audience in…

Book playlists are a bunch of songs perfect to listen while reading a specific book. They can be put together by the author or anyone else. A lot of people listen to random songs on their playlists while reading and sometimes the songs are completely in contrast with the scene and you have to come… Continue reading Book playlists: what, why and want?
They told the seed he would never grow
All the bushes stood above him and said he would never show
But the seed believed and never cried when they mocked
He believed he would grow into a tree and they would be shocked
Little by little he inched his way above the dirt
But all the bushes said was it was a little growth spurt
They kept laughing and never believed
All the big things the little seed could achieve
Then one day the seed grew to where he touched the clouds
He looked and saw all the other trees standing tall and proud
He looked down at the bushes on the ground
And the tree now saw how his life turned around
He wondered why the bushes put mocking him over their needs
The other trees told him that the bushes forgot that they too were once seeds
It's been so long since I've updated my audio blog on SoundCloud and I finally got around to it today. https://soundcloud.com/iridescencey/sounds-from-wednesday-morning That's the link to it. Recently I realised that Elm from JustElm made a YouTube channel and just posts audio recordings wih blank visual. That's a pretty good idea! I really want to do… Continue reading Listen to me rant about books!

So I thought I would start this thing where I would tell my progress, what books I finished and what I will be reading next every week. Sure I might not really have a new book EVERY week but I will try. Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas And this completes my reread of… Continue reading Weekly bookish update!
This question was appropriately described by midnightrantersblog.
And that’s the beautiful thing about it all: it’s a community that only grows and connects people together. Like how I just had one of the best conversations ever with a person whom I only just talked to.
Sooner than you think, we also end up making friends because of these wonderful fandoms. That’s one of the many things I love about being a book-reader; it’s like a place where everyone literally always belongs.
A rant post about books and memories. For no reason I could fathom, I randomly decided to go on the Amazon app on my phone to see offers on books. What I saw: Girl on the train - 225 Rs. (as compared to the 600 Rs. I saw in the bookstore the other day) The… Continue reading When looking at books…
