I’ve often felt that if a writer can succeed in writing a meaningful short story, they can make a successful attempt at a book as well. I’ve compiled a small list of a few of my favourite short stories. I read some of these for school and some, just because I wanted to. I hope you can find something worth reading.

  1. Lamb To The Slaughter by Roald Dahl:Clever is the only word that can explain this story. I read this story at school and I was not the only kid who was dumb-struck at the sheer brilliance of Roald Dahl. It tells us the themes of betrayal in a marriage between a husband and a wife…

Custom Bookmarks

Not so long ago my sister presented me with stacks of beautiful… sheets? Actually, I don’t know what is that! A sale-person told my sister that these sheets are used for notes.

My heart fell down. They are so feminine, soft and wonderful, that I can’t imagine how somebody uses them just for a quick note.

So, after a few days of thinking, I decided to make simple bookmarks from them.

I’ll try to back.

That was a huge mistake that I stopped blogging. Still, I didn’t drop off my courses!

What next? I’ll try to return and make posts at least once a week.

My big goal is to stop having time-depts that I must work on weekends. If I do it I will have this time for the blog. Also, it’ll give me the time to make photos and posts on Instagram.

Wish me a luck!



All around the Caraval is a lie

I found this book on Instagram before it was published. It is what we call cover love. Sparkling cover with magic title “Caraval” has stolen my heart. As I wrote before I study English and this book has became my fourth book in English language. Speaking about author’s style of writing it is good enough not only to understand but also to imagine the characters, and situations, and their little world.
