As a lover of short stories and Gabriel Garcia Marquez, I cannot even begin to explain the kind of writing and prose that I read in these stories. This collection of twenty-six stories will transport you to a world that Marquez wants you to see with his words. With incredible themes infused with humour and magical realism, this book gets a 100/10. My favourite story from this collection is: <em>The Incredible and Sad Tale of lnnocent Eréndira and Her Heartless Grandmother</em>.

If you are looking to hone your writing skills and need some tips from the pros, I recommend you grab this book and read it once every month. It's part memoir and part writing class, but it's great if you aspire to be and writer or are a fan of Mr. Stephen King himself.

Chris Hemsworth co-stars with Randeep Hooda for a super action-packed movie. The plot of the movie is meh, but the execution of it is really well done. After watching the movie, trust me, you will be talking about the 'one take' fight sequence that has everyone gushing over. Fun fact: the director of the movie, Sam Hargrave was actually the stunt coordinator for both the <em>Avengers</em> movies. You can watch it on <a href="https://www.netflix.com/title/80230399" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:Netflix" class="link rapid-noclick-resp">Netflix</a>.

One of my all time favourite musicians/DJs/producers played a one hour DJ set for Beatport during this lockdown. Play this in the background while you are coking, ccleaning, playing games or even working. It's a great set, trust me.
