I like these short stories compared to big reads as this speeds up the reading challenges on the Goodreads app. 😊 The plot is about encountering a fire incident in the sacred heart school lab and how students set to find its grounds? This leads to the official start of the SMS detective agency and thus goes their investigation paths. The characters are memorable for being simple and realistic. It’s suitable for children whose interest lies in mystery or detective stories.

This runs as an autobiography like an “I am Malala” storytelling. When I read the earlier book, it gave me insights about Swat and the bravery of an Afghan girl and her fight for education, which was very thought seeding in my opinion. Whereas this brings the efforts of a westerner to build a school premises in a stranger land. I am really inspired by the Greg’s constant struggles with his aspirations and deliverance. These journeys explains how lucky to live in a country with a proper provision of the education and questions whenever a desire of affording something irrelevant occurs. Like the author pointed “Education is indeed meant a hope to end the ignorance”.

I had a nostalgic feeling of similarities to Nancy Drew series while reading this book. But of course with a bundle of Sherlock Holmes style of deductions underneath. The story is about a murder of the staff Miss Bell which will be solved by the two students of the Deepdean school. It’s refreshing to see the map of characters and the other details are pleasingly potent. Especially Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong were loquacious and inquisitive. Overall had a nice alumna experience.

This book is about Randy Pausch, a professor of computer science at Carnegie Mellon University and was diagnosed with a terminal illness – pancreatic cancer. It offers many wisdoms into his approach as an academician and his morality is echoed throughout. Well, I thought its contents to be a memoir sorts containing battling details but turned out different and quite preaching in my honest opinion. This thought provoking statement in the book “Luck is indeed where preparation meets opportunity” has absorbed me and will remain to stay forever. A very heart wrenching tale and had made a strong impact on me.

As a fiction aficionado wanted to explore the nonfictional counterpart and gave this book a try. I could not believe that, I have completed this book in a single sitting. It is about originating the reservoirs of the bats in lieu of Ebola outbreak. Starting from collecting data from the affected areas to performing various tests is explained to the points. Varied researchers and scientists opinions are shared to present their point of views on their findings. The following statement from the book is still echoing in my head and indeed an intriguing excerpt – “Don’t imagine that these viruses have a deliberate strategy, Don’t think that they bear some malign onus against humans. “it’s all about opportunity”. They don’t come after us. In one way or another we go to them. We offer them opportunity to infect us when we mess with their reservoir hosts, whatever those creatures may be.” Highly informative and engaging read.

May be an image of text that says 'THE SUNDAY TMES BESTSELLER REASONS TO STAY 'A small masterpiece that might even save lives' JOANNA LUMLEY ALIVEl Matt Haig 'Matt Haig is astounding' STEPHEN FRY'

Depression and anxiety are a conjoined term which many suffer and yet has not attained its true recognition. Matt having an exposure to the illness gave his inputs that can be called as a true memoir. Being a social phobic, anxious feel is engraved deeply which cannot be erased with just positive rain of words. There must be a continuous pattern of good thinking, reflections to make it work. So, this is what Matt has put forward in this book and I feel he has aced it. After “The midnight library, ” I chose this book to try and did not make me susceptible to mediocre views, except being open minded with what is serviceable. I think this book needs to be in every school library and hope it transforms the lives of vulnerable fellow beings. Kindly acknowledge its impertinence and enriched to reach as many as possible. This statement is interesting – “To panic without a reason that’s madness. To panic with a reason that’s sanity” 🙂
