Fake Accounts & No One is Talking About This [Review]

Sarah Naeem

Can I be honest with you? As much as I love talking about the books that have brought me immense joy, I find it equally as exciting to talk about books that I absolutely couldn't stand. One of the great benefits of owning a bookstore is being exposed to new releases, upcoming novels and just generally being immersed in the myriad of topics being explored in the world of publishing. Two recent novels that caught my attention were Fake Accounts by Lauren Oyler and No One Is Talking About This by Patricia Lockwood. Both titles have been published in 2021,...

One of the first things that struck me about the deck was the dreamy shade of midnight blue that forms the backdrop of the cards. Against this template, the images are illustrated in starkly contrasted colours of white, and gradient of pale blue. From the first moment I held the cards, I was drawn into the cosmos of the night sky, stars and all its mysterious ways. The effect is quite hypnotic. There’s something about the contrast of colours that lulled me into its cosmos, as if I was daydreaming. A state of daydreaming can be effective in several ways....

Guest .

In 2016, I stumbled upon the magical world of bookstagram, and it has come to be be one of the best online communities I've ever discovered.

You can't even imagine the number of times I've walked into a...

Rules for Visiting Review

Guest .

“Yet spending time with friends is the first thing we drop when life gets busy.” These two quotes from the book, Rules for Visiting by Jessica Fracis Kane, truly captures the essence of her writing. This book is a calm exploration of many things that make up life. Narrated by May Attaway, an almost forty-year-old woman, whose profession is a gardener at a university. Definitely not one of your fast reads, but I was able to truly sink into the book and it helped me slow down my own pace. The writing is so beautiful throughout with a great dose...

Washed Up

My mother was just 20 years old when she migrated to Singapore from India, and her homeland has always been an integral part of my life growing up. Since the maternal side of my family still lives there, she never let me forget my roots and we visited India almost every single year ever since I was born. I do think it’s safe to say that lifestyles led in India are very different from life in Singapore. As I reflect on my experiences, I believe growing up in these two very different environments has made me who I am today....
