Weekly Roundup | The Week That Was | 20w07

Is it Friday already? Dayam. Happy Valentine’s Day, y’all! Time’s flying super-fast these days. I haven’t gotten much done in this week. I was hoping to publish one book for Valentine. It didn’t happen, obviously. Else, I would have gone crazy announcing it. I celebrated the “Romance Week” by reading a lot. Incidentally, this time…

The week that was – 20w06

That’s how I began my work day. I know what you’re thinking. That’s a lot of pickle. That quantity will last me the whole summer. *exaggerating* I just realize now that I have not included the glass of water – the most essential thing on the dining table. The paratha was okay and I devoured…

The week that was – 20w05

It still feels bizarre. Yesterday was almost dream-like as I survived through the day like a zombie. Sleep-deprived mind isn’t always productive. Thankfully, Friday came soon enough. Can’t wait to sleep for 24 hours straight. How was your week? Did you read / watch anything interesting? Shabana Mukhtar

The week that was – 20w04

Our first and only Friday in Madina. The day of return is looming around. I haven’t started shopping yet. Too much to do in 3 days. Shabana Mukhtar

Best of 2019

There are too many, because I am easily amused and impressed. These 5 events stand out for the happiness and / or amusement that they brought. Alif Yes, Alif is the best thing that happened in 2019. First, it increases traffic for book review. Once HAR PAL GEO announced the airing date for the drama,…

The week that was – 20w01

I have read two books already and drafting the review posts. The reviews will be up sometime in next week, or this weekend, depending upon how much time I get. Office was okay. After the skip level (you can read about it here: Shut The Beep Up | How to Not Lead By Example) and…

2019 As a Writer

I didn’t write much, not fiction at least. I focused my energies more on the blogging side and reading, than actually writing stories. I have written a few but they are not published yet. I published 11 books in 2019. Hopefully 2020 turns out better. Sigh! Shabana Mukhtar

2019 As a Reviewer

I went berserk as a reviewer. There were books that I read and then we’re dramas, telefilms, web series and everything else under the sun. I reviewed, a LOT. Books I read ~180 books and posted reviews on Goodreads. There are some reviews that I posted on TOMU. Others, I didn’t. Alif By Umera Ahmed…

A Retrospective: The week that was – 19w52

It is the last week of the year and white hectic by regular standards. It is supposed to have less workload but… Anyway… The week started okay and ended on a quick shipping spree in a shopping mall nearby. How was your week? Did you read / watch anything interesting? Shabana Mukhtar

2019 As a Blogger

CRAZY…. that’s the word.   From venting out my frustration in online journals to reviewing books, dramas and sharing my stories; I have come a long way since I started blogging.

2019 As a Reader

I didn’t read as much this year. My ranking on Goodreads has dropped, even though I am still part of top 50. I no longer retain the #1 top reviewer. Not that it matters to me. It did, in 2018. I completed my reading challenge of 150 books. That’s a big number but I read…
