Last of Twenty-Seventeen

I thought to assemble my lasts of twenty-seven including book reads, food, presents, creative stuff etc.


I was trying to complete Pat Barker’s war time story: Toby’s Room as my last book of this year. But got my hands on Katie McGarry’s young adult book by mere chance.

Pushing the limits by Katie McGarry . . the book (eBook!) is just so amazing. I started reading it last weekend due to absence of any real book (hard copy!) at that time anddd couldn’t stop reading it after that.

Hoping to complete it tonight as my last of twenty-seventeen. 🤓


As the year used to end with the festivities of December and the fun of Holidays, I happened to devoured a lot of yummy food. From Pateesa to Doughnuts and Burgers to Omazing Omelettes. I realized my love for food. 😻

But Hey! the best food goes to . . ta-da! Popcorn. Comfort food. 

If you consider it a real food. 😛


Gone are the days where I used to create lot and lot of artistic stuff 🙁

this year the least I could call my creativity is this.

After I ruined the front of my laptop while pasting a newspaper cutting with a sellotape. I took it to get covered with a real laptop sheet & combined it with this amazing quoted sticker.

Black and Yellow – the combo is not so bad!



I have some sorta attachment with yellow cartoon character. Be it SpongeBob or Simpsons. 

andddd . . 

I got the most happiest person as a birthday present this year – Mr. Happy. I loved the character oh so much. I already bore a small Mr. Happy journaling notebook. But the Mr. Happy himself made me drooling over it.

books and Covers

Words were da first reason I felt inclined towards books and ever since words are da priority.

Never judge a book by cover – we Ol book people know this phrase and used ett occasionally (including me!)

But here I am. Confessing with Ol my might. I fell en love with a book by ets appearance, cover I mean 😛

So here ett es:


da pretty cover!

I heard a lot of praises and got recommendation regarding this book. And though now I got this en eBook format and hard copy (another edition). But when I came across this particular cover. I felt like, I need it. I definitely need this one.

But yeah! there are reasons to fall for this title. I like da amalgamation of words in the background. I like da sharpie written handwriting of title. And Oh I absolutely love da spiral notebook style (Obvious for someone who es obsessed with spiral notebooks).

There was a time when book covers were so plain, unattractive and similar with their appearances. But after da rise Ov YA (young adult) genre. Book appearance makes a great deal with Ol their font, illustration and Ol that. Spine-to-edge! 😛 And we reader actually look forward to having some pretty covers on Our paperback editions.

So which one do you like by ets cover most and why es that? I’d love to know. As we Ol have a crush on some specific book covers? 😉
