The Other Side of Midnight


I really don't know why I came up with that topic. Well, it's the title of a Sidney Sheldon novel and it's midnight so why not? I talked about a Sidney Sheldon novel HERE
No classes today so I'm curled up in my bed, trying hard to ignore the incessant chirping of the crickets in my room and the loud music from the other room, battling with a crazy network and wondering
- Why Network can't be perfect everywhere. Seriously, I'm tired of having to wait for about 5mins to get a page to load. You don't want to know how long it took me to post this.
- Why I keep letting it get to me
- Whyy anyone would be playing music loudly by this time of the night.
- Why I sometimes allow myself to be crippled by fear
- Why someone would say it's his destiny to rob. Yes, I just saw it on Twitter - @l_laitan. No, I'm not judging.
- Why we sometimes let stereotypes disturb us and hurt our feelings.
- Why Darey has such a sweet singing voice
- What the answer to this is. Any ideas?

- Why I've practically abandoned this Criminal Case game. I mean, how else would I get to do some Detective work?
- How we unconsciously let pride ruin friendships
- Why Pringles has to be this appealing. I don't know if I'll ever stop midnight snacking. Who else is guilty?
I really should sleep now. I don't know how but my neighbours have lowered the volume of their speaker and the crickets have toned down on their noise. Who showed them this post?!
It's mid-week. How's it been? Hope it has been off to a great start.

  1. Lol. I enjoyed reading this. I'm also guilty of midnight snacking. Whenever you get to stop, let us know. I think the man is inside the house. Cheers

  2. I relate to too many of those points like the criminal case one. And the only reason I don't snack at midnight is laziness. Can't be asked to go down to the kitchen.

  3. Life can be puzzling sometimes and the more we seek answers, the more we discover.
    I think the man is inside the house too!

A Literary Conversation | JANUARY

I love and enjoy reading and this year, I decided to read with more intent. Much more than the knowledge gained, the vocabulary that becomes expanded and the numerous places I travel to from reading books, I decided to actually journal about my reading activities this year and also write out lessons learnt from each book.

I read at a pace of one book a week so that should be about 4 books a month except when a book has too many pages and I have to go through it in two weeks. I actually belong to a book club but because I already had a book I wanted to start the year with, I couldn't follow the reading schedule from the onset of the month so I decided to just freestyle it for the month of January. The books I read are

1. You Have A Brain - Dr Ben Carson
2. Adored - Tilly Bagshawe
3. Small Great Things - Jodi Picoult
4. The Great Gatsby - - F. Scott Fitzgerald
To Kill A Mockingbird  - Harper Lee
    The Tumour - John Grisham

A Literary Conversation | FEBRUARY

Don't you just love how February flew by quickly? I definitely do and it came with lots of fun and of course, reading.. It feels just like yesterday when I published this POST  on the books I read in January and now it's time to write about the ones in February.
As there's only 28 days in February, I actually thought I'd be able to complete only 3 books but I'm typing this on the 26th day and I was able to go through 5 books! It however isn't in the numbers but in how each book eventually makes one a better person.

Enough digression, I initially planned to read mature romance novels because month of love but after the way the first book I read made me feel, I changed course immediately and went on to read other genres touching topics ranging from racism, colonialism to holocaust stories to a young adult medical fiction and even a children's storybook!

1. STILL ME - Jojo Moyes

If you've seen the movie 'Me Before You' or read the book, then you&#…

A Literary Conversation|MARCH

Unlike in February when I had a theme of books to read, in March, I did not. I just randomly compiled books I assumed I would enjoy and I enjoyed all 4.

1. THE KITE RUNNER - Khaled Hosseini
This book guys, would swallow you up. It's actually a very sad book and I expected this because I've read a book by the same author where I almost shed tears but this blew my imaginations. You know, at some point I just stopped mid sentence and wondered for the umpteenth time how one person could be so talented and make so many emotions come up with words! I actually felt like I've never read before. Lol.

PLOT: This book was set in Afghanistan and the protagonist is Amir who lost his mother immediately after she gave birth to him and who throughout his childhood tried hard to win his father's love while also having fun with his best friend, Hassan who is also the son of his father's servant. Amir watches Hassan being bullied and abuse…
