"There is none worthy of worship besides Allah, He is all by Himself, He has no partner, His is the Kingdom, for Him is all praise, He has power over all things. 0 Allah, make Nur in my heart, in my ears Nur and in my eyes Nur. 0 Allah open my chest (bossom), make my tasks easy and I seek refuge in You from the whispers of the chest, from disorganisation...

I read Olga Tokarczuk's "Primeval and Other Times" and it has become my favorite book ever

I bought it from the library with no clue it was this good and it shocked me when I found it out. It is set in an imaginary town called Prawiek and the book itself is an analysis of how the life of the inhabitants of this town goes.

On the off chance that other Int Corps hopefuls are about to undergo selection , read this book you won't regret it; every candidate knows their CDRILLS and corps motto, not every one knows their corps founder...

Just finished ‘Lolita’ ...

Such a haunting yet enjoyable read. After months of changing my mind on whether or not to read it I finally did it. By all means the plot and some moments make me feel physically sick, but it is not just a “paedophilia book” and I don’t think it romanticised or justified paedophilia. I enjoyed the read and it is truly amazing literature, Vladimir Nabokov...

For the Pride & Prejudice fans out there

If you also like musicals, watch the streaming Pride & Prejudice musical from Silicon Valley Theater Works. It’s free on Amazon Prime Video. I was lucky enough to watch it live, and now that I have found it online, I’m obsessed.
