'The Curse of Brahma (Krishna Trilogy #1)' by Jagmohan Bhanver: A Book Review

The man who became a Brahmarishi...
The curse that banished him to the hell of hells...
And the revenge that threatens to destroy the three worlds...

When Lord Brahma, the God of Creation, banishes his star pupil from Swarglok in a fit of rage, he does not foresee that his decision will alter the fate of the three worlds. Mortally wounded, and anguished at Brahma's unfair punishment, his pupil struggles to survive in Tamastamah Prabha, the hell of hells. In time, he becomes the Dark Lord, the most feared figure in Pataal Lok, who swears to destroy Brahma.

The power of the Dark Lord soon begins to make its presence felt in the mortal world. Vasudev, the brave prince of Bateshwar, becomes the hunter of Asura assassins; his closest friend, Kansa, almost dies while trying to save his sister from a group of deadly monsters; and the most valiant kings in Mrityulok turn over to the dark side, driven by forces beyond their control.
Only one person threatens the Dark Lord's well-laid plans - Devki, the beautiful princess of Madhuvan, who is destined to give birth to the warrior Krishna.
Will the Dark Lord allow Krishna - the person who has been prophesied to destroy him - to be born?

'How One Attempts to Chase Gravity (Gem City #2)' by Nicole Campbell

Ethan Fisher is kind of a badass -- just ask him. The fact that he plays guitar and sings in a band only serves as fuel to the fire of his flirtatious nature. That is until he meets Courtney Ross, a sort of anxious, pixie-like cheerleader with a vocabulary much larger than his. Things would be perfect if she didn’t live eighteen hundred miles away. She shifts his perspective and steals his heart, but how long can she keep it? Find out what was behind all of those sexy smirks in What Comes of Eating Doughnuts With a Boy Who Plays Guitar, and what really went down the night of that fateful phone call.
College bound, Ethan knows he will run into Courtney eventually, and he is determined to have another chance to be the man she thought he was. If it is even possible for her to speak to him without throwing her coffee in his face. He’s willing to take his chances in hopes that the infatuation of their summer love can hold up in the real world. In a novel that is part insightful overlap, part delicious sequel, learn how this winding tale of love and heartbreak ends.

Silver Linings // Just a Random Update #8

Last time I spoke to you about my life, I wasn't doing too well. What with college and moving in and work and making new friends... life was really hectic. Things haven't changed that much, but I think I have.

I know a lot more people in my class now, even though I don't talk to them at all, but I've actually made two really good friends. And you Geeks know that to me, two is the perfect number.  My new friends are a lot like me - introverted and sarcastic and awesome - and we eat each other's lunches every day.

What I Wore Recently // OOTD #9

The past two weeks have been so busy that I barely had time to take photos of my outfits. Hopefully, that won't happen this week. I like being productive, but if I don't even have time to pose in front of the mirror, I'm doing something wrong.

Anyway, from college to work to home, here's what I wore recently.

Philosophical Ramblings #4: What Matters More, Courage or Kindness?

So I was recently reading Divergent, and a thought popped into my mind: which of the five traits is the most important? Selflessness, bravery, kindness, intelligence or honesty?
Well, selflessness and bravery go hand-in-hand, and intelligence and honesty, while important, are logical responses, not emotional ones. So that left me with courage and kindness.
