Hi you guys! I had such an amazing night yesterday I think I’m going to cry while reliving it!
I went to watch The Vamps performing! (They’re one of my favouritesssssttttttt bands)
So, recently The Vamps collaborated with this Indian music producers duo called Vishal-Shekhar and released a song called Beliya (which I LOVE), please go listen to it and love it along with me :”)
WATCH IT WATCH IT WATCH IT
After the release of this song, they made the best decision any band I love could ever make: They decided to come to India!
So, The Vamps are here, in the same city as me, breathing the exact same air and living in the very same timezone that I live in! (I don’t sound like a 20 year old any longer)
And thus I went and saw them! They performed at his place called The Hard Rock Cafe in Andheri(W) and I went by myself, but God, I had such a great, great, great time! Once they came and started singing, I was transformed into a squealing 13 year old hormonal girl and I have zero apologies for that.
The performance wasn’t as long as I’d want to see their perfect faces for ( ideally, all my life ), but but but, it was beautiful! I sang and screamed and took pictures and was so so content and proud of myself for going. Towards the end of their performance, James took of his shirt and blessed us all with his beautiful bod. Heaven x 69
Here are some of the pictures from my amazeballs night! ❤
I DONT UNDERSTAND HOW TO FLIP THIS
(Back with awesome books), YAY!
6) The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
Oh, this book. This book has been on my to-read list since forever, and my god, it’s brilliant x 10000000!
It’s narrated by Death which is little weird and also he keeps giving you spoilers for example, he’d see someone walking along the road and then be like “This is the last time we’d see her/him”; But all in all, the book is a definite must read and lives up to all it’s hype. Its also sad and heartbreaking an the ending will make you cry, but I haven’t come across a book as good as this one all year and this is definitely my favourite read of the year up till now.
7) Postern of Fate by Agatha Christie
Agatha Christie will always, always been my favourite author. But for those of you looking to start with her books, you might as well skip this one. The protagonists Postern of Fate are Tommy and Tuppence (Christie’s married detective pair) who are in their 70’s or 80’s. They’re retired and move to a country house but find clues left by the old inhabitants that lead them to discover a murder that occurred almost 20 years ago.
The book is flat and boring and is an absolute zero match to Hercule Poirot.
8) Aarushi by Avirook Sen
This is journalist Avirook Sen’s first book written on the famous double murder case Aarushi-Hemraj Murder case that happened back in 2008 in Noida (Near Delhi, India). A 14 year old girl was found with her slit throat in her flat and the next day the servant was found dead on the roof of the building. Avirook Sen followed the investigation from the get go and attended every single court hearing. He interviewed the suspects, witnesses police personnel and everyone relevant.
This book is brilliant beyond words. It shows exactly what went wrong in this case and how because of general carelessness of various authorities, the parents of Aarushi were convicted even though there was no evidence against them. This case is by far one of the reasons I never want to practice in India as a lawyer.
Go look up the case and then read this book!
9) The Righteous Men by Sam Bourne
This book is very much similar to many of Dan Brown’s books but so, so much better. It goes deep into a very ancient religion and it’s rituals. The book follows a journalist who investigates what seem like random killings but turn out to be a plot of mass murder of exactly 36 people who have done no wrong in life.
This book is a major page turner and is also written by a journalist!
10) Dollar Bahu by Sudha Murthy
Dollar Bahu talks of a middle class Indian family in which the mother of the family has the same dream as every single Indian mother – Send my son to the United States and get a same standard wife. The mother is so highly obsessed with her elder son earning in dollars and his highly fancy ‘modern’ wife that she completely neglects her younger son who has a kind and charming wife. The book spans almost over two decades and leaves really beautiful messages at the end.

A Typical Teenager’s Life
I’M FINALLY DONE YOU GUYS PLEASE BE PROUD
I did these lists last year too and since I legit made a list of books I’ve read this year, I figured why not do this again?
So, it’s August 2016 and I’ve read 32 books till now! (Aren’t I awesome!?) Here are five of those!:
- Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
This book is SO magical and happy. The whole book is a flashback narrated by a man who comes back to visit where he grew up. The book starts with him remembering the family at lived at the end of the road and how the girl living there had a gigantic impact on his life. The book is written so simply and beautifully and full with such magic!
- Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares by David Leviathan and Rachel Cohen
David Leviathan is slowly turning into one of my favourite YA authors now. This book is just one of his collaborations with the brilliant Rachel Cohen.
Dash, while browsing through his favourite bookstore finds a book that says “I’ve left some clues for you. If you want them, turn the page. If you don’t, put the book back on the shelf, please.” And obviously Dash picks up the book! What follows is a very traditional clues and dares game between Dash and Lily till they finally meet in person. The book is all kinds of adorable and cute, but do not go around expecting things like this to happen to you!
- All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven
Ever since I found out about this book, I wanted to read it. And I’d be kidding if I said the wait wasn’t worth it. The book is about two teenagers who climb up the clock tower in their high school to commit suicide and then get partnered up in a school project. The book is heartbreaking and you WILL cry a thousand tears but that will not stop you from finishing it!
- A Work in Progress by Connor Franta
Connor Franta is my favourite youtuber at the moment and his autobiography is all kinds of happiness. His book talks about his childhood, and his coming out and everything in general. The book has adorable stories and even more adorable pictures!
- Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by JK Rowling
Re-read my second favourite Harry Potter this year and loved it all over again!
I love nothing more than Sirius Black and I will never love anything more Sirius telling Harry that one day they’d be a proper family. Harry Potter is a must read always.
