Earth To Centauri by Kumar L. 

Don't we all dream about space travel? About getting onto a spaceship and seeing what the universe has to offer us? Doesn't your heart soar when you see a live rocket launch on TV? I have this theory that every future space colonizer should keep in mind when they decide about "the people they are… Continue reading Earth To Centauri by Kumar L.

Battling Injustice: 16 Women Nobel Peace Laureates by Supriya Vani #BookReview

What if I told you that there were 16 women who graced this earth with their beautiful personas, their dedication to a cause as high as a mountain peak, their willingness to sacrifice everything which could shake the earth, their resilience to personal tragedies which made them formidable, their hearts of gold which shines out to their near and dear ones and the world alike?  "Battling Injustices: 16 Women Nobel Peace Laureates" by Supriya Vani is a book that brings the stories of these 16 women to light. Not only does it enlighten our minds to the possibility of doing more than what we do everyday, but it also shows us avenues where there still is a requirement of help and lack of peace. It teaches you to humble yourself and get to the ground level and get things done, not for yourself, but for the whole humanity at large.

Children's Fiction

Adventures in Farland by Moshank Relia #BookReview

A good children's story book has the following trait: adults can read and enjoy it too. After all, when the kid is of a younger age, don't the parents read goodnight stories to them from children's fiction books? And hence, shouldn't the book make the adult reader smile and laugh too? Moshank Relia's "Adventure in… Continue reading Adventures in Farland by Moshank Relia #BookReview

I received a copy of this book from HarperCollins India. Thank you HCI for making this bibliophile's day! Food and love. A pair of two emotions. Yes, food is an emotion.

Love can be expressed by… Continue reading Served With Love by Priyanka Menon #BookReview

11/22/63 by Stephen King #BookReview

11/22/63 is the first book I read by Stephen King. And judging by the glowing reviews this book has received on GoodReads, I surely started at the top of the hill. 11/22/63 is the first book I've read from the alternate history and slipstream fiction genre. Slipstream is a kind of fiction that is a blend of… Continue reading 11/22/63 by Stephen King #BookReview

We all live some form of Option B. This book will help us make the most of it.

~ Blurb of ‘Option B’ by Sheryl Sandberg

For this book review of Option B, I’m going to try a new format of writing a review post :  a chapter by chapter review. This book is not only about the grief of losing someone you love, but also various other reasons why people are forced to reinvent themselves and choose Option B. And hence, I’m doing this review on a chapter-by-chapter basis.
