Book Review: The Angina Monologues

Don’t you just love when good medicine and good literature collide? I do, and The Angina Monologues by Rosamund Kendal is the best example of this I have encountered – EVER, I think. […] three female medical interns from vastly different backgrounds are sent to a rural KZN hospital where rogue snakes, violence and viruses – acknowledgedContinue reading “Book Review: The Angina Monologues”

TTT: So you liked Jodi?

I was sixteen and sick in bed when Mom bought me The Tenth Circle by Jodi Picoult. I loved it. There was something easy, but intense about it. Despite my feverish state, I couldn’t put it down. I quickly moved on to more of her books. I loved them all, I noticed a common thread. SheContinue reading “TTT: So you liked Jodi?”

TTT: Creme de la Creme

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday with The Broke and the Bookish is a freebie and, indecisive as I am, I couldn’t pick my favourite past topic. So I chose 10! Fret not, I do not intend to give ten answers to each topic. Just one. There is a freebie coming up again soon, so I’ll have toContinue reading “TTT: Creme de la Creme”

Book Review: Orchid

As a rule, I do not review non-medical books on this blog, unless it forms part of a Top Ten Tuesday. However, since my recent discovery of the myriad of book blogs, Goodreads and the ability to read while maintaining my schedule has led to me rather bravely attempting a bookish challenge, I have decidedContinue reading “Book Review: Orchid”

Book Review: The Emperor of All Maladies

In 2012 I participate for the first time in a bookish challenge. Click here to see the different catagories.  For the History category I read The Emperor of All Maladies by Siddhartha Mukherjee. The Emperor of all Maladies is a biography: not of a person or a company, but of a disease – one of the mostContinue reading “Book Review: The Emperor of All Maladies”

Book Review: The Garden of Evening Mists

A few months ago, an awesome thing happened: I was contacted by Myrmidon Books to participate in a Virtual Book Tour (my first time ever). Very exciting, and nice to get to read a book without buying it too (you were all thinking it, no lies). The Garden of Evening Mists by Tan Twan EngContinue reading “Book Review: The Garden of Evening Mists”

Top Ten Books Assigned a Theme Song by Moi!

In their weekly bookish meme, The Broke and the Bookish asks which books we would give a theme song, and which song, and why. This is definitely one of the harder topics for me. I love books and I love music, but I am terrible at remembering the names of books, authors, songs and artists.Continue reading “Top Ten Books Assigned a Theme Song by Moi!”
