    Thriller on Your Mind? Pick Memory Man by David Baldacci

    After a bit of a reading slump, I needed a fast-paced book to get me going. I picked up David Baldacci from the local library here last weekend. It was my first Baldacci, and the first book in Baldacci’s Amos Decker series (there have been four so far in the series). Amos Decker is the detective at play, solving mysteries and murders. Having suffered a head injury that ended his football career, the trauma induced a condition called hyperthymesia and synesthesia. The result of this- is never being able to forget anything! Weird as the condition may sound, it is this ability that gets him to crack cases and get…

As reasonable as it seems to me, to others, this may be the most irrational fear. Surely it doesn’t make sense to be afraid of something one has no control over. However, I battle this fear (albeit for a few minutes) on almost…

    Author Guest Post : Sunanda Chatterjee on her Book, Sins of The Father

    I have often wondered why authors choose a particular genre to write about. How do they weave a story, sometimes so beautiful, and capture the genre’s true essence. I recently had the opportunity of posing this question to author Sunanda Chatterjee. She writes sagas and dramas-of romance and families. Her tales are woven with passion and speaks of women. Her heartwarming tales are popular, making her books consistently top the Top 100 bestsellers on Amazon USA and Amazon India in Asian Literature, Indian Writing, and Asian Drama categories. Her short stories have appeared in anthologies, short-story.net and induswomanwriting.com.  Sunanda published recently, Book 1 of the Wellington Estates Series, Sins of the Father…

Travelling Singapore could often get to be overwhelming with the sheer number of places to choose from. Unless you have a good ten days at leisure to cover it all, it is wise to make a choice and only pick the must see attractions in the time you have at hand. This tiny island country has something to offer for every kind of traveler. But there are a few that every tourist must see. Marina Bay You would have caught a glimpse of this along with the iconic Merlion on almost all…

At the core of the book is the story of a mother and daughter, and around this core are many other little stories inter-woven. Celeste NG is an American author whose first novel Everything I Never Told You was the Amazon book of the…
