Monday + Tuesday = MonTueday

Sorry for the most horrible title to this post, but I wanted to just say that I am going to combine my Monday and Tuesday post today 🙂

Today I am feeling super good, because I had an amazing weekend. Saturday was spent with my parents, shopping and Sunday with my Husband and his Brother’s family eating an awesome dinner. By the way, if you are in Mumbai – do check out Bistro Grill (Arabic food) – really awesome goodness – Loved the food there.

Reading-wise, I read Sarah Dessen’s Along for the Ride and Karen White’s The House on Tradd Street. Both the books were awesome and un -put – downable! I have come to realize that I love Sarah Dessen a lot. If I am in a reading slump, I just need a dose of her and I am back on track 🙂 Karen White is going to be my next favorite author, I just loved this book as well.

I am still reading Mermaid’s Chair by Sue Monk Kidd and Chanakya’s Chant by Ashwin Sanghi. I think the former is slow- moving book but in no way bad. The latter however just got sidetracked because of Dessen and White 🙂 But I am right back on it now. I also have The Book Thief going – which is on my iPAD and is awesome!!

I have some books on the waiting line as well –
The Other Hand by Chris Cleave just landed – and I am totally excited about this. (Little Bee is the better known title for this book)

On the girl’s brown legs there were many small white scars. I was thinking, Do these scars cover the whole of you, like the stars and the moons on your dress? I thought that would be pretty too, and I ask you right here please to agree with me that a scar is never ugly. That is what the scar makers want us to think. But you and I, we must make an agreement to defy them. We must see all scars as beauty. Okay? This will be our secret. Because take it from me, a scar does not form on the dying. A scar means, ‘I survived’.
pg. 13 ‘The Other Hand’ by Chris Cleave.

I found the above lines very powerful, a thought that changed the way I see scars – the ones you can see and the other ones that you cannot.

We watched Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 1 and 2, 2 weeks back. And I must admit I liked the 2nd part better than the 1st.

I am really glad we watched the 2nd part in the theater because it was an awesome experience. My Hubby who has not read the books but has heard and seen the stories in movies also really liked this one.
Another movie I wanted to talk about is…

I knew that this is a series of books, but never really thought about reading them. But I have resolved to read them, the movie was awesome to say the least and even Aarya enjoyed seeing the dragons fly.
