Hey everyone! How are you all?

This is one very late wrap-up. I just started college a month ago (I’m studying Literature!) and it has kept me incredibly busy. I’m hoping to find a balance as soon as possible so I can post in a proper schedule.

Here’s my combined wrap-up for the July and August.   Continue reading “July and August 2018 Wrap-Up”

Interview with Preetika Mehra, author of Let You Be My Puppet Once

Please tell us about yourself.

Passionate about social structures, economic policies and philosophy, analysing and finding connections in all of them. In free time, she loves reading and learning about Zodiac signs, practicing yoga, and cooking. A tarot learner of late.

Profile – Economics Graduate from the University of Delhi. MBA from the Indian Institute of Foreign Trade (IIFT) Delhi in 2016 and is currently working with an MNC in Chennai, India.

How did you end up being a writer?

Never thought consciously about finishing something. Just kept penning down my thoughts and observations about many things. When it all seemed to connect well, I felt like giving it a shape of a story. Always wanted to write something different, something contemporary that readers can relate to and some realistic with detailing. I have always personally liked books which either gave me some new information or helped gain some behavioural knowledge. Wanted to add those aspects into my book.

What do you like to do in your free time? What is your hobby other than writing?

In free time, I love reading and learning about Zodiac signs, practicing yoga, and cooking. A tarot learner of late.

How was your publishing experience?

Couldn’t have asked for anything smoother than what I had.

8 Easy Classics To Start With

Hey everyone! How are you all?

Underrated Books

I’ve seen a lot of readers say that they don’t like classics. They find them boring and difficult to read which is completely okay. I admit that classics or basically any book can be boring for them and interesting for others. However, I do feel like sometimes readers want to start with or like classics but they don’t know how to. My recommendation is to start with the ones that are most simply written and this post is about that.

Please note that I am no expert on classics and I’m not claiming to be. This list is just recommendations among the ones I have read. Feel free to add some suggestions of your own in the comments.   Continue reading “8 Easy Classics To Start With”
