"A trauma released is always better than a trauma retained.”... . #NadirasPointOfReview: The Blind by A.F. Brady. . 📚Sam James is the best #psychologist in her institution with the highest success rates in treating the most disturbed patients. When a mysterious patient Richard enters, why does Sam have a problem cracking the case? Who is saving who? The mind games begin. . 📚Pros: · Psychological thriller! · Fantastic premise! Right inside a mental institution! · The author is a licensed #psychotherapist! . 📚Cons: · Boring and slow build up. · The book put me in a month-long reading slump! · Too many characters. · Too many patient cases were crammed in one book. Distracting & unnecessary! · Couldn’t love nor relate to the protagonist. · Halfway through I quit and flipped to the very end. Tried to read the ending atleast 3 times and still the suspense was not clearly spelt out. · But the #reader gets the suspense at the very start anyway! Very predictable. . My Rating: 2-stars⭐⭐.. . Full review on my blog ☞ www.nadirasworld.com.

Goodbye #September. Hello #October!🍁They say “Autumn paints in colors that Summer has never seen.”🍂🍁For me, its colors that I too have never seen.😐 There’s no such thing as #Autumn here in UAE!😭 Yes, it’s getting slightly cooler here and by that I mean, it feels like half a degree lesser. It’s still a whopping 38C!😞 Oh well, atleast I can bring about these lovely autumn and fall colors into my #bookstagram pic😄. How hot or cold is it wherever you all are? Make me jealous with your fall stories please... . Oh and #Internationalcoffeeday!☕ I’m a tea-hater.đŸ€ą I’m not a #coffeeaddict either.🙄 I drink it very rarely and whenever I do – I make sure its extra-creamy, frothy with caramel if possible.😍 I consider coffee as pure luxury. You should see how I sip it – its almost how you would sip on your passionfruit mocktail sitting in maybe Hawaii!đŸč😅 I always make sure I have something to dip in my coffee – either some #Bourbon biscuits or even better is some #Loacker biscuits. My officeboy makes THE best coffee ever!đŸ‘Œâ€And the 2nd best coffee in my life is hands down Pappa Roti’s Caramel #Macchiato with their super-awesome #Nutella bun!â€đŸ˜â˜• Mmmmm
. pure luxury. What’s your favorite coffee? . . . #halfofayellowsun #chimamandangoziadichie #coffee #coffeetime #goodvibes #reader #bookishfeatures #booksofig #fortheloveofreading #livelittlethings #minimal #squeakybookishlibrary #myfabulousflatlay #everymanslibrary #flashesofdelight #thatsdarling #booksbooksandbooks #bookstagrammer #instagramreads #met_createchange
🌞Good Morning lovely bookstagrammers! How’s your Monday moving along?😊 Isnt it "Too Much Monday and Not Enough Coffee"? . My mind is in a limbo of sorts – I want to tackle my many review copies and other books lying on my TBR pile, like this #gabrielgarciamarquez 's #StrangePilgrims gifted to me by the lovely @tarunpreets_bookishclickdiary . But all I feel is bored, restless, stressed, depressed. Vulnerable and afraid... . It’s just a mental state and I know it shall pass. So for now I fill it with #Despacito on repeat! Lol 😅.There’s also no way to deal with the reading slump other than juggle between few books and try my best to read a page or 2 every day from all of them! The ones I’m focusing on right now is a review copy #TheBlind by A.F. Brady and #PerfectDays by Raphael Montes. . For those who couldn’t win something in my previous giveaway posts, here’s an exciting news for you all! Stay glued to my feed, as there’s a superb giveaway post coming in tomorrow!😍😉 . On a side note, am I not reaching my 2000 milestone a tad bit too slow? LOL! 😅Whoever said Slow and Steady wins the race – I hate you!😂Oh well, atleast my sense of humor (however lame) is intact!😉 . Have a great day guys! May your #Coffee be Strong and your #Monday short! . . . #goodvibes #shoutout #reader #bookishfeatures #booksofig #fortheloveofreading #bookhoarder #livelittlethings #colorsplash #minimal #squeakybookishlibrary #myfabulousflatlay #everymanslibrary #penguinstagram #flashesofdelight #thatsdarling #bookblogger #booksbooksandbooks #bookstagrammer #uaebookstagrammer #vintagebooks #instagramreads #met_createchange
#NadirasPointOfReview: Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty. . 📚Synopsis: The story is based in #Australia & follows three women... . 🌾Madeline – she’s fiery & funny – caught up in the family drama of her teenage daughter choosing to stay with her ex-husband & his new wife. . 🌾Celeste – stare-worthy beautiful woman with a gorgeous, rich husband, adorable twin boys and a mansion for a house. . 🌾Jane – a single, young mother who is new to town and is soon befriended by the other two women. . Premise is mainly school-based. Lot of school functions, petitions, taking sides, family drama, scandals mixed with town politics, big, little lies, etc, and among all these normal people – a MURDER! . 📚The narrative style started out SO confusing, as at the end of every chapter there are snippets of gossipy women and their POV on the incident that has gripped the town in shock. It took a while to get used to it. Also, I thought OMG I don’t wanna read about whiny kids and mothers and school nonsense. But I was so wrong! As @the.solitary.reader had mentioned to me once – it’s one hell of a cracking read! . 📚Brilliant story, superb set of characters! Full-on drama! Absolutely loved the gossipy, catty mothers and the school politics! It tackled the subject of Bullying very well and how adults partake in such things unknowingly just as kids do too. You will love the bonding and friendship between the women. Characterization of the mothers, the husbands, even the children and town gossipers was very well portrayed. Such a uniquely told story coz you don’t even know who is the person murdered until the very end! The ending, specially how the women react to the murder was absolutely EPIC!! Loved it and highly recommend it. 5-stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐. . 🌾Had a superb #buddyread and discussion with the lovely @thefictionalposts, @pologeebee @taniadoughan, @wannaread, @bookaholicshoice, @wannaread and @thebooknookae. . PS: Watched the #TVshow right after and nah it didn’t live up at all as much as the book. Didn’t like the direction and music selections. They changed a lot of things too but then it all did work out quite well in the finale episode. . . . #BigLittleLies #LianeMoriarty #letsreadBLL
Wishing everyone here a very Happy & Blessed Eid Al Adha Mubarak!đŸŒ™đŸ€— Here’s a quick #Islam101 for all who dont know what we #Muslims are celebrating: . 🕋The Hajj is the #pilgrimage to Islam’s holiest site Mecca in Saudi Arabia. This happens every year on the last month of the Islamic lunar calendar. . 🕋It is one of the largest human migrations. Every year over 2 million Muslims from all around the world & from different walks of life travel to Mecca and pray to God facing the Ka’aba (House of God). Fact: We don’t worship the #Kaabah. It is only a simple square cube structure in Makkah - the first house of worship established to remind humanity of the One Supreme God. . 🕋It is believed that a person who performs the pilgrimage returns home as a “newly born baby, free of all sins.” . 🕋Hajj is essential for a Muslim who is physically/mentally/financially capable. Atleast once in his lifetime. . 🕋Pilgrims circle the Kabah and remember Prophet Abraham, who raised the building of the Kabah along with Prophet Ismail by the order of Allah the Almighty. . 🕋Hajj also commemorates Hajar (Prophet Abraham’s wife) when she frantically ran between the two hills of Safa and Marwah, in search for water for her baby Ismail. The blessed Zamzam Well miraculously gushed out in the middle of the desert under the feet of the baby Ismail. It has never stopped flowing since then! . 🕋Hajj also commemorates Prophet Abraham and Ismail’s willingness to obey God’s demand of sacrifice. This is done by slaughtering an animal in the name of Allah. In Islam, it is important to understand that sins are not washed away by the blood of another. . 🕋Eid al Adha marks the end of the pilgrimage where the pilgrims head to Mount Arafat in Saudi Arabia and ask God for his forgiveness for their sins. Those who didnt make it for Hajj, fast the previous day and spend #Eid praying, sacrificing an animal in the name of Allah and distributing the meat to friends, family and poor. . Have a blessed day everyone! . .

❀I received this #ARC from the #publishers for an honest #bookreview. . ➡Expected Release Date: Jan 2018. . 📚 #NadirasPointOfReview: #NeedToKnow by #KarenCleveland. . 📚Synopsis: In pursuit of a Russian sleeper cell on American soil, Vivian Miller a CIA analyst, stumbles upon a dangerous secret that will test her loyalty to the agency & to her family. What do u do when everything u trust might be a lie? . 📚Pros: A very easy read in terms of #language & even font used. A pretty short #book. The biggest pro: it’s a very exciting & cleverly-designed book! As you flip through the edges of it, the child inside you that always loved spy movies or to be the #FBI, awakens with delight! Okay, so the #story starts off quite well – keeps you at the edge of ur seat with anticipation
 but only for a short while. I cannot delve more into the story as every bit will only add to spoiler alert BUT BUT BUT – the ending! That will kinda take your breath away along with your brain – coz you simply wouldn’t know what it means! You just know that for sure there will be a sequel!!😉😁... . 📚Cons: Yes there are few twists & turns but it’s a lousy attempt to turn this book into a #PsychologicalThriller; to keep you second-guessing the intentions of the main suspect. Unfortunately, the writing on the edges actually give away the biggest spoiler! The truth lingers at the back of your mind all along. You know the reality from the start. And that’s why the thrill is really not there anymore. As a #Russia vs. #America spy thriller, it falls short. Vivian as a CIA comes across as weak & spineless. She keeps digging a hole for herself & I kept wondering how she’s gonna overcome it all. Moving back & forth between past & present is one book-writing strategy that I’m increasingly despising these days. It’s simply boring. I think I prefer a chronological approach more! All in all, a disappointing read.. . 📚My rating: 3-⭐⭐⭐. . . . . . #penguinbooksuk  #goodvibes  #reader  #bookishfeatures  #booksofig  #fortheloveofreading  #minimal  #squeakybookishlibrary #myfabulousflatlay  #everymanslibrary  #penguinstagram #flashesofdelight  #thatsdarling  #bookblogger  #bookstagrammer  #uaebookstagramer #needtoknowbook

🌞Good Morning lovely people! . ♄Bookstagram is a lovely community and photo-stealing is unacceptable. However, it was brought to my notice that my IG Stories yesterday was a form of bullying. Perhaps my wordings were too harsh on 2nd thoughts, so I want to own up to it and apologize for inciting hatred. I absolutely do not support bullying of any sort and my intention was certainly not to do that. I instantly took down my stories and urged all those who had followed me and supported me to take down their stories too. I have sent an apology to the concerned person as well, for the heartache I may have caused her. "An eye for an eye might make the whole world blind." #SayNoToBullying. . 📚Talking about books... who doesnt love Agatha Christie? My favorite author who created my favorite detective of all times Hercule Poirot. This is my AC collection.

Hello lovely #bookstagrammers!đŸŒ· A very Happy, Chirpy, Sunny day to u all!! 🌞🌞🌞 My best motto that I looooove to apply in life is "Fake it till you Make it"!😉So even if you are not feeling your happiest, cheerpiest, sunniest self - show your 32 teeth (if u still have them all!) and grin away!😁😁😁 Yeah yeah I know.... #looneytunes101😅😅... . I finished #NeedToKnow over the weekend and my #bookreview will be up shortly. Meanwhile my restless self started juggling 2-3 books, namely #SaltHouses, #Rebecca and thinking to jump right in with a #Murakami too! . What are you all #currentlyreading?😊... . This post was all ready to be uploaded since morning, but then got caught up in the #bookstagram drama!😣 If you guys saw my IG Stories you would know how a certain "someone" tried to steal my photo and post it as her own. Such people need to be named and shamed and deserve no sympathy nor any benefit of doubt! A huge Thank You to all those who messaged me and showed their support! đŸ€—đŸ˜˜â™„ #SayNoToPlagiarism . . . . . #penguinbooksuk  #sundayfunday #reader  #bookishfeatures  #booksofig  #fortheloveofreading  #minimal  #squeakybookishlibrary #myfabulousflatlay  #everymanslibrary  #penguinstagram #flashesofdelight  #thatsdarling  #bookblogger  #bookstagrammer  #uaebookstagrammer  #instagramreads  #met_createchange  #rfabaugust17 #needtoknowbook
đŸŒ·â€œNo, darling! To die it's easy... But you have to struggle for life!”.. . 📚 #NadirasPointOfReview: Maus II: A Survivor's Tale: And Here My Troubles Began. . 📒Synopsis: "Maus I" had introduced readers to the cartoonist's dad Vladek Spiegleman, a Jewish survivor of Hitler's Europe and his terrifying story. "Maus II" moves us from the barracks of Auschwitz to the bungalows of the Catskills. It continues the harrowing tale of survival against all odds, and the author's tortured relationship with his aging father. . 👏No Cons. Whatsoever. As NY Times said: An epic story told in tiny pictures. . ✏Pros: I finished this book in one sitting. It was Heartbreaking. Heartwrenching. A total Heartache of a book with fantastic illustrations! Not every story touches the reader’s soul and makes it ache so much that you just want to bawl your eyes out. But that’s exactly how I felt. The inhumane atrocities against the Jews during WWII is unimaginable, unacceptable and simply shameful. This story really sheds light on how ordinary people had to constantly be on the run far from their homes and how they had to hide on the tiniest bunker spaces available. How they were tortured, humiliated and gassed. How they had to live on meagre rations not even fit for rats! Harrowing. Disturbing... . 📍Vladek was a very resourceful man – hardworking too. Admirable personality. Very inspirational. A true survivor. His aging self is so irritating - the way he picks on the littlest things, how he stresses over his health and medicines, how the war made him a massive miser and how that drives his 2nd wife and his son insane. The cartoonist's turbulent relationship with his dad is on point. . 💡An interesting but ironical observation on how a lesson was not learnt by the Jews - when the cartoonist points out to his dad that despite their torturous history with the Nazis, they themselves incite racism and inflict hatred against others such as the Blacks. Same can be said on how they treat the Muslims in Palestine today. . Very highly recommend this book. Read it urself to see how good it is. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐. . . . . . #maus #artspiegelmen #graphicnovel #comicstrip #comic #wwii #ww2 #worldphotoday #zomatouae

🌞Good Morning lovely people! . #CurrentlyReading and loving The Sultan's Wife! It is fantastic storytelling as of now!😍 . #UpNext on my TBR for this month (hopefully) is Salt Houses by Hala Alyan. It sounds like a good read. I absolutely love the gorgeous #bookcover and #booktitle and you all know by now what a shallow-minded and totally a judge-the-book-by-the-cover person I really am!😜 . . . Here's the blurb for it: A debut novel about  a  Palestinian family caught between present and past, between  displacement and home. On the eve of her daughter Alia’s wedding, Salma reads the girl’s future in a cup of coffee dregs. She sees an unsettled life for Alia and her children; she also sees travel, and luck. While she chooses to keep her predictions to herself that day, they will all soon come to pass when the family is uprooted in the wake of the Six-Day War of 1967. Salma is forced to leave her home in Nablus; Alia’s brother gets pulled into a politically militarized world he can’t escape; and Alia and her gentle-spirited husband move to Kuwait City, where they reluctantly build a life with their three children. When Saddam Hussein invades Kuwait in 1990, Alia and her family once again lose their home, their land, and their story as they know it, scattering to Beirut, Paris, Boston, and beyond. Soon Alia’s children begin families of their own, once again navigating the burdens (and blessings) of assimilation in foreign cities. Lyrical and heartbreaking, Salt Houses is a remarkable debut novel that challenges and humanizes an age-old conflict we might think we understand—one that asks us to confront that most devastating of all truths: you can’t go home again. . . . . . #salthouses #halaalyan #tbrpile #instabook #reading #igreads #bookstagram #reader #bookishfeatures #booksofig #fortheloveofreading #writingcommunity #goodvibes #livelittlethings #diversereads #arabauthor #colorsplash #minimal #squeakybookishlibrary #myfabulousflatlay #everymanslibrary #penguinstagram #flashesofdelight #thatsdarling #bookblogger #booksbooksandbooks
