Why I am a reader..

BOOK REVIEW: Happily Murdered by Rasleen Syal

I happened upon this book by chance. Almost a year back I'd picked this book up from my favourite book store.

Everything I see is colourful and bright, But somehow nothing seems all right.. Never have I felt so much of a fright.. I don't know if I can take this flight, Plunge myself into this world of light.. Leaving the shadows would be such a plight.. How will I go from hiding to sight, While... Continue Reading →
