Book: The Defining Decade

I just read The Defining Decade, whose tagline is ‘Why your twenties matter and how to make the most of them now’ by Meg Jay, PhD. I don’t normally do a lot of self now’s reading (read at all), but my sister-in-law recommended this one to me and I’m going to choose to believe that […]

Book: The Rosie Project

I am trying to read more – and so I stole this book from my neighbour – The Rosie Project, by Graeme Simsion. Don’t ask me to pronounce that. (honestly, I can’t even remember the last time I finished a full book. I am failing in life, the real type of failing, not the one […]

Book: The Fault In Our Stars

The copy I had of The Fault In Our Stars had a fault on the cover. I got it from the Archangel who bought it in India, where – get this – they literally photocopied every single page of the original, slapped a new cover onto it and sold it in all its ‘#1 Ner […]

Book: The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives

Yay! First book review of 2015! I enjoyed The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives a lot more than the Secret Lives of Bees, lemme tell you. (I still haven’t finished the latter. There’s something about books that everyone enjoys that I just can’t seem to get. Maybe I’ll do the unthinkable and watch the […]
