Star studded upcoming sci-fi series: Dune

I am a sci-fi buff. I had my fair share of sci-fi novels that I have read throughout the years, like Isaac Asimov’s Foundation Series, or Orson Scott Card’s Enders Game series. Recently, my all time favourite, Liu Caixin’s epic trilogy, Remembrance of Earth’s Past series and James S.A. Corey’s The Expanse novels. But strangely,... Continue Reading →

On the topic of reading…

Now that HBO's run of Game of Thrones is over, I believe now is a good time to fully immerse myself in the world of Westeros. I read the first book many years ago, right after the first season ended. I was curious about the world, and wanted to know more about it, something the... Continue Reading →

Finally finished Goldfinch

I initially enjoyed reading the novel when I first started it. However, the plot got muddled a little bit in the final 1/3 of the book.

Vikas Swarup Six Suspects

Back then I was totally crazy about Slumdog Millionaire. That movie became the best movie I have ever watched in years. I totally did not expect it to be that good. The last time I watched a movie and felt good after watching it was "The Pianist". That was the only movie that I could... Continue Reading →

So i decided to do some accelerated reading, meaning to read a little more than my average reading pace. I started spending more of my free time catching up on my reading. During the holidays, i bought a lot more books to occupy myself. But wanting something different this time around, i tried picking up... Continue Reading →
