    "I just bought the book "The Boy Who Sneaks In My Bedroom Window", and after having read a few pages I'm firmly convinced that I couldn't have spent my money in a better way. Maybe. I don't know. But I kinda like this book! Will report back when I reach the end. :)"


Did you know that the most couples are willing to enter an exclusive relationship after six to eight dates? According to Google, the definition of dating is "to go out with someone (someone in whom one is romantically or sexually interested)". Historically (According to Wikipedia), in some countries, dating is not practiced but arranged marriages are the highlight of families who look for economic stability and political alliances. But today, the concept of arranged marriages is now a taboo. 

In the United States, since the 1960s, there has been an increasing number of singles and unmarried persons, and the trend has continued and spread year after year according to Statista.  With the increasing number of singles and unmarried persons, dating has somewhat become an opportunity for these people to go out and get to know people more. For some, dating has its own rules to make it successful. Like proper communication and trust, these are important things to consider when dating. It also involves a lot of self-care and adjustments now that technology also plays an important role. People today are now gadget-dependents, they prefer to date online. Online apps for dating are also being developed, these applications are made especially for people who are in search of true romance and maybe sometimes, fun.

    "Listen, this is a pretty compelling read, for sure, but I wouldn't say it's about friends becoming lovers. The guy our heroine falls for is her kidnapper, which is pretty sexy, but it's a whole different vibe from a slow burn born out of friendship. I so recommend it if you are interested in the story though"

    "I love novels where love burns for years before finally becoming an actual thing. I know I've gone through similar straits in my life. Rock Chick hits all the right notes and never lets you down. It's part of a series too and I can definitely say if you read one of them, you'll want to read all of them."

    "I had a great opportunity to watch this movie "wanted " , based on a comic book of the same name , featuring Wesley Gibson, a mild-mannered accountant working at a big firm, who is stifled in every area of his life. Work, girlfriend, money ,everything frustrates him. But he can't seem to muster up the courage to speak up for himself. Alongwith this , he had severe migraines, for which he takes medication But he's about to find out that there's a lot more to him than he ever could have imagined. Featuring James McAvoy (who, prior to this was mostly known for playing Paul Bettany's brother in Wimbledon and Mr. Tumnus in the first Chronicles of Narnia), who is still far away from being Professor X at this point, this movie also has Morgan Freeman and Angelina Jolie in key roles (and even features a young Chris Pratt, as Wesley's office mate and cheating lover of Wesley's girlfriend). Wesley is approached out of the blue by Fox (Jolie), who tells him that his headaches are not due to migraines , but they are due to his heart beating more than 200 times per minute because he's the son of a specialized assassin. Wesley thinks she is bluffing him , until he gets caught in the middle of an insane firefight between Fox and a mysterious man who seems to be hunting him. Wesley is eventually introduced to The Fraternity, a league of assassins that Fox is a member of, and which is led by a man named Sloan (Freeman). He finds out that these unique people have all sorts of crazy skills that no one else has, and that using a Loom Of Fate, which produces cloth that somehow determines who Fate wants to be eliminated, they have been the agents who eliminate problems for 1,000 years. Wesley is told that the mysterious man Fox had the gun battle with is a rogue member of this Fraternity who killed his father and is trying to eliminate the other members, and that Wesley is the only one who can follow in his father's footsteps and track him down. Before that , he has to learn from the other Fraternity members how to do close-quarter combat, knife fighting, reduce his reactions to pain, shoot, and most incredibly of all, bend bullets in flight with his mind. Through it all, Wesley starts to become a stronger person, more willing to speak up on his own behalf, and become a cool, confident man like his father was. He is eventually sent on kill missions, where the amazing talents of himself and Fox are put on wonderful display. Eventually, he is faced with Cross (Thomas Kretschmann), the rogue assassin . Featuring a lot of Matrix-style action and gun play, this movie is a real thriller and i thoroughly enjoyed it. "

    "I've been in love with my friend for awhile and haven't been sure as to how I should approach her about this so I've started looking for inspiration from literature. This book is pretty adorable and kind helps me put my current situation in a new light. At first I was kinda scared of rejection and what this would do to our relationship but this book makes me look at it differently."

    ""Friends Without Benefits" is the second book of the "Knitting in the City" series but don't worry, that doesn't require of you to read the first one to understand this. It safe to say that this second book is more of a standalone sequel and there is no need to know anything else before diving into it. "
