Presenting: “Magpie Reviews”


I don’t know how to do this. For the past five (5) years, all I’ve been doing on this blog is writing poems, stories and promoting bloggers and newbie writers. I’ve suffered a massive writer’s block this year and therefore I’ve only written a few poems which honestly I am not proud of.

In retrospect, not being able to write and interact with my friends here gave me a reason to get back on doing other things that I love — Reading. I’ve been a bookish since I was little even before I fell in love with writing. And because I had to think of other ways to busy myself, I downloaded Goodreads and iBooks again, signed up for Netgalley, downloaded hundreds of books with the genre that I love, created a Kindle account and checked out a few books on Amazon. It was fun. I can’t remember the last time I had fun until that moment.

So, I have read 59 books this year as part of Goodreads 2021 Reading Challenge and the numbers will definitely go higher as I am trying to read at least 100 books in total for 2021. I would like to share some thoughts about them. I hope that you can support me on this new series. I will still be posting poems and my writings.

What are your favourite books? Any recommendations?

      1. I am currently reading “Parable of the Sower” by Octavia Butler. She’s an author I’ve had on my list for a while so I’m excited to finally get to her works


  1. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and habits, my dear Ragazza ๐Ÿ™‚
    Books I like to read are spiritual books, especially from Sant Kirpal Singh that help to understand something from our life and its purpose where we come from, where we have to go and what it means to know the higher values of life.
    All the best, my friend ๐Ÿ™‚
    Hugs and love


    1. Hello, Didi. Thank you so much for your comment. It is so nice to see a familiar face here in WordPress. It takes me back to the good old years of my blog. Haha. I am also reading spiritual books, something that would inspire me, that would teach me how to balance my emotions. I re-read โ€œThe Monk Who Sold His Ferrari. Such an awesome book.

      I hope youโ€™re doing great. So nice to hear from you again, Didi. โ˜บ๏ธ

      1. Yes, my dear friend – I feel likewise – and isn’t it strange: although we do not really know each other, but you are familar to me, like I know you. There is always some kind of bondage between people or vise versa. So I feel happy too, to see you (or hear from you) again – Hugs and my love, my friend ๐Ÿ™‚


      2. Aw. Thatโ€™s true. It is always a pleasure to see your name on my feed. I mean, I lost a lot of friends here on WordPress but your blogs are always there, reminding me that not everything and everyone is lost.

        Thank you for being a blessing. โ˜บ๏ธ
