Friendship Trope In Real Life

This is an ode to all those people who have stuck by me through thick and thin, who have uplifted me and supported me, and sometimes even fed me to the wolves!

Review: The Girls Weekend

Rating: 3.5 Stars The Girls Weekend by Jody Gehrman starts off with the usual story that you expect from a book with this title: old friends getting together for a weekend, one of them reluctant because of the tension with another, yet things conspire to make her go last minute.

The book follows the... Continue Reading →

Review: The Party Worker

Rating: 4.5 Stars Omar Shahid Hamid is a Pakistani author who I rate very highly. If you want to read about the real Karachi, then his books are the ones you should pick up. Of course, his books show the underbelly of this multi-layered, multi-cultural city, and are only reflective of the shady side of... Continue Reading →
