5 reasons to read 'The Great Iron War - Book Two'




Hopebreaker (The Great Iron War - Book One) by 'Dean F. Wilson' is an engaging book.

And here are some of the reasons why I am waiting for the second one -







(Warning - Spoilers ahead)
  • Call me a Hopeless Romantic if you will. I have just finished reading a Science-Fiction Fantasy, which I enjoyed. And yet, one of the main reasons I look forward to reading the second part of the series is because I want to know where Jacob's and Taberah's relationship lead. Their bantering, their chemistry, and their future.
  • Whistler is a 'good kid', who chooses to the path of trust, despite the negativity of the world he's living in. I want to see him grow and mature but not be a cynic.
  • Rommond's presence made me uneasy when he was introduced in the story. It no longer does. But I want to see his 'human' side. I want to know what made him the way he is.
  • What is Brooklyn... a mystery!
  • '...some have greatness thrust upon them'. As the story progresses, Jacob's path seems to become clearer. Despite his light humour, he is headed for greatness. How great is the 'greatness'? Will he lead the Resistance one day?
P.S.: Will the Book Two be titled 'The Lifemaker', or is it too obvious? I wonder.

Absurd, yet so good (Book Review - David S. Atkinson's Not Quite So Stories)

Title: NOT QUITE SO STORIES Author: David S. Atkinson
Publisher: Literary Wanderlus LLC
Pages: 166
Genre: Absurdist Literary Fiction
The stories of David S. Atkinson's Not Quite So Stories are, for want of a better word, weird.
They are not your typical short stories and they are certainly not what I had expected.

So, the 'not quite so stories' are weird, atypical and unexpected. And I enjoyed reading them. Read between the lines and you'd be surprised by their depth.
Read them superficially and they are 'absurd'.

The author's dedication for this book is
"For Shannon, who graciously puts up with my absurdities and loves me anyway.
Also for every third person named Fred."

When I re-read the dedication after having read the book, it held more meaning. Thus my use of the word 'absurd'.

The stories are very well-written.
The humor, the emotions, the terror - it is all subtle.
The paradox is that everything is exaggerated and yet the underlying message is sub…

Blogging, Parenting, Nutrition... lots of fun - Blogger's Meet

#CatchUpOnGrowth - the Indimeet that launched Horlicks Growth+, discussed parenting issues, clarified many nutrition confusions, and as is common with all Indimeets, pampered bloggers and celebrated blogging.










The session started with a discussion among Dr Rajiv Chhabra (HoD of Pediatrics at Artemis Hospital, Gurgaon), Ms Satinder Kaur Walia (a psychologist), and Dr Jyoti Batra (Head Dietician at Batra Hospital). This discussion, moderated by blogger Natasha Badhwar, about nutrition for children and parenting in general was a very informative.




There was much to learn from the session. Here are lists of a few things I brought back with me...

Malnutrition has remained the same over the years, but obesity has increased. Worse still, parents are in denial.
Obesity is not only a health/medical problem. It leads to psychological issues for the child too, such as being bullied, teased, etc.

The many tips I am taking home on nutrition. Most of these are relevant, not just for children, but for ever…

The right and wrong of choices #WriteBravely

"You can choose courage or you can choose comfort. You cannot have both" - Brene Brown
And it is ok to choose comfort. 
This is my first instinct when I read this quote. Not because I don't feel that choosing courage is the wrong choice, but because it is implied that one should choose courage.
Ideally, we would all choose courage and lead perfect lives. 
"Life is unfair" - such a clichè and so very true. As true as the facts that the world is imperfect, the destiny is not in our control, and that life is uncertain. "You get what anybody gets - you get a lifetime" - Neil Gaiman
I think my instinctive reaction of 'it is ok to choose comfort' comes from my being a mother. I have spent years counseling my kids that at times, you choose what is right for you. 
Many a time I feel happier waiting rather than taking any immediate action. And waiting takes a lot of courage.
So, yes make the choice between courage and comfort. Choose courage even.  But decide for…
