#BookReview: Cold Case No. 99-5219 – A Samantha Church Mystery Series Book 4 by Betta Ferrendelli

Reviewed by me for Reader’s Favorite Cold Case No. 99-5219 is the Fourth book in A Samantha Church Mystery Series by Betta Ferrendelli. I assume that the protagonist, Samantha Chuch, lost her dear sister, Robin, in one of the previous series. When she visited her sister’s grave, Sam’s daughter, April, found another grave with a very peculiar headstone. The inscription on the headstone did not say anything about the real name of the child who was buried; instead, it called her “Baby Hope” and had an appeal to the general public to call the given number if they knew anything … Continue reading #BookReview: Cold Case No. 99-5219 – A Samantha Church Mystery Series Book 4 by Betta Ferrendelli

“Why do you laugh so much?” He said. “Why don’t you?” She laughed. #FridayReflections

We have a tendency to make sense of everything that’s happening around us. Almost all of us have forgotten the incredible philosophy of going with the flow. If someone is smiling, we would want to know the reason. If somebody is upset, we would want the reason to be logical. If someone is in love, we would love to know the basis of that love. We don’t just ask the question and listen to the reply, but we would like the answer to meet the checklist of logical response. The society does not accept the vague answer; therefore, we have … Continue reading “Why do you laugh so much?” He said. “Why don’t you?” She laughed. #FridayReflections

Carve Out a Little “Me Time!” #TheDailyPost

I read a popular post on FB last night (or this morning, I can’t remember) and it truly touched me. It was a dying woman’s letter to the world. Here is the link, if you are interested: http://www.homesluxury.net/dying-womans-heartbreaking-letter-world/ This post made me wonder how we live our lives. We are running behind our careers, relationships, money, promotion, kids among million other things. We are obsessing over every little thing in our lives, all the while knowing that we have no control over anything. However, when it comes to devoting a little time to our own welfare or amusement, we take a … Continue reading Carve Out a Little “Me Time!” #TheDailyPost

Ultimate Brilliance in Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland #TheDailyPost

When I was reading my favorite book, Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll, I remember being fascinated by many of its characters. Although all the characters were well-written, my favorite character was Mad Hatter — no surprise there! Lewis Carroll has given an eye-opening reality check to the readers without even sounding like a preacher. He redefined the concept of madness and made me, as a reader, rethink the very definition of being a mad person. There were so many brilliant, yet strange, dialogues that one might lose all the sense. Lewis Carroll’s writing would force you to speculate, … Continue reading Ultimate Brilliance in Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland #TheDailyPost

Finding Inner Peace – A Forlorn Struggle! #TheDailyPost

I have been an advocate of putting your inner peace above everything else. However, is achieving it as simple as it sounds? Definitely not! This task could have been simpler if we would not constantly compare ourselves to others. In retrospect, not comparing to others would have been easier if we would not have been spellbound by social media. How do we not get fascinated by the colorful dreams, hopes, and promises being presented on it? How do we not get mesmerized by the illusion of possibilities that it sells so splendidly? I am not a social media hater. It … Continue reading Finding Inner Peace – A Forlorn Struggle! #TheDailyPost

My favorite song for a long time had been “Almost here” by Brian McFadden and Delta Goodrem. If you haven’t heard this song, you can click here to check out the lyrics. The song is about a very heartfelt conversation between lovers where the girl doesn’t feel that the boy is really present with her; however, the boy is pleading his case by mentioning how much he loves her and how he can change the world for her. Initially, I could not realize how can someone be “almost here,” but then I grew… Continue reading When You Are Almost There #TheDailyPost

When I read the daily post prompt of the day, Extravagant, I was strangely drawn towards many memories at once: my carefree childhood, the green-eyed monster’s attack on me when I saw a friend’s honeymoon pictures (FYI, she went to Paris), and a wave of frustration that hit me when I knew that I’ll have to turn down an opportunity to attend London Fashion Week. My carefree childhood memories are filled with not bothering about what others were doing. I cannot remember if I ever noticed what brand the girl/boy next to me… Continue reading An Extravagant Life or A Soul-Satisfying Life? #TheDailyPost
