Tell Me Your Real Story.
Most often any piece of writing you either write or plan to pen down will be a an effect of what inspired you or how you desire to inspire others. The poetess Savita Nair is nothing short of becoming your modern icon. Her thoughts are bold and blarrers right out of the book.
The poems are just one of a kind which is just not the usual ones that you would read or expect to be in every other poetry collection.
Poetry, I guess had a significant feeling which is just like a song or your favorite book. Its an escape from the world, a heavenly adobe for the writer and the reader as well. The poems in this book says how the world as it exactly is, never an escape.
Some of the poems in the book were genuinely great and it pushed me to read it over and over, which in turn explains my late review for the book!
The things that run inside a 20ish women’s mind about first dates, work, home, dates, Friday nights ,men, love, breakup , and to all the other wired feelings that run around like crazy in the mind were all been fished out and given words but interestingly in a different way.
I’ve shared some of my favorite quotes form the book…
I lost my heart and never found it
To be honest I never tried
Because it felt good to have burnt in passion
Which forever, I thought had died
Let’s not make any compromise whatsoever
And live today, as if we had forever
Good read if you are planning for something out of the routine and different!
The hidden peaks,
And sneaky smiles..
Fewer the words
Greater the nods..
The short stories dragged,
Still eager for more..
Waiting for a wave,
For the smile in you
And me..just nothing more !
Danielle Steel books are known for their emotional factors and touchy segments. This book adds up yet another color to the already brilliant rainbow of the Steel books. The story picks up pace in the first half but the un-put-down-able factor recedes in the second half of the book. But all of it makes up to the total theme and value that the books depicts.
The story stars with a little girl named Annie Whitaker and the happiness that she had brought about to the family of Whitaker’s.It is Christmas time and when everyone thinks that their life could not be more better, a thunder strikes in the family as they lose Annie. The death of the child would alter the family ties forever, until one fine day when Maribeth walks into their lives.
Tommy Whitaker, the loving elder brother of Annie, devastated by his sister’s death would instantly get attracted to the sixteen year old pregnant waitress, Maribeth. The travel of 250 miles would suddenly start to make some sense to Maribeth as the book reveals. Tommy would be pictured as having an exceptionally good heart like the typical male characters whom we can find only in novels. The birth of Maribeth’s baby and the happiness that it would finally bring about to the Whitaker’s family makes the book worthy to try.
E-book version is available for free. The paperback lovers like me, can grab a book and get going with it.
My favorite quote from the book :
I felt like this captured the whole essence of living and giving something to others in the process.
With Blue Ink Of the Oceans is a collection of poems written by Anu Joshy, published by Leadstart Publishing Pvt Ltd. On the first hand, I would like to thank the publishing house for sending me a copy of the book and my appreciation for the house in encouraging young poets and poetess. This book carries an outstanding collection of poems written by the poetess Anu Joshy.
The cover speaks for the elegance of poetry collection inside the book. A poem becomes more close to you when it becomes relatable to you. And in that sense, every poem written by the poetess touched my heart.
The book puts forward the amount of pain that a person faces when cupid fails and in spite of that it encourages us to break those barriers of hurt and move on for a better tomorrow. It boosts up our spirit and serves as a virtual guide for young women who face crisis. You come to know that depths of depression hit not only you, but others face it too. And we can look up to the caressing words put forward by the poetess.
A few of the poems like ‘Nomad’ stayed with me longer than I thought it would. This particular poem pictures a scene in every day train journey and the description is way too good. The poem ‘River only flows forward’ made its own impression relating nature and life. ‘Stranger in my heart’, ‘Reflections’, ‘A friend to all’ ,are all my favorites from the book.
I have a longer list of favorites but I don’t want to put forward any spoilers, saving it for you to enjoy. After a dosage of 400 paged novels, I felt refreshing to read this compact book. Also every poem was different and had a new thought in it. There are a lot of brilliant works by Anu Joshy in the book and it is worth spending your time with. Tech nerds can grab an e-book too!
In all, a refreshing and valuable book. A good choice of read; recommended for young women.
