Is To Kill a MockingBird Overhyped?

‘Cry about the simple hell people give other people — without even thinking. Cry about the hell white people give coloured folks, without even stopping to think that they’re people, too.’

‘Atticus says cheatin’ a coloured man is ten times worse than cheatin’ a white man,’ I muttered. ‘Says it’s the worst thing you can do.’
– To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Haunted: A Paranormal Awakening

In the memoir, Haunted: A Paranormal Awakening, Julie Coons shares how her dream house morphed into a life-threatening nightmare.

After her difficult childhood with an abusive mother and a gut-wrenching marriage, she deserved a place to call home sweet home.

Adding Poetry to Your Daily Life #GuestPost

It amazes me how poetry transcends form and shape. When we say poetic, we don’t necessarily refer to written poems. By Wordsworth’s definition of poetry, “spontaneous overflow of powerful emotions”, poetry could be anything: your clothing, your house, your perfume, or anything materialistic or spiritual, worldly or imaginary can be poetic. All we need to have is an eye for beauty and the heart to appreciate it.

Piled Up Pauses

Piled Up Pauses – A collection of poems by A V Anjali Menon is, as is evident by the title of the book, a poetry collection.

The Tragedy of my Superhero, an example of straightforward poems in the collection, is a beautiful tribute to her nanny.

As if the battle inside her head wasn’t enough, her boyfriend’s reluctance to marry her and have babies with her added an emotional conflict to the equation.
