The cover of this book looks very dreamy, mystical, quiet and beautiful. Now let me decribe the content within the book to you. The plot of the book goes like this: AM Hydro project is the common thread between three people brought together by fate: Nanda, Khusru and Rekha. If you notice the cover image… Continue reading Men and Dreams in the Dhauladhar by Kochery C. Shibu #BookReview
You can completely trust my review on this book, though! 😀 Welcome to my first book review of 2018, old and new followers! The plot of this socio-political thriller goes like this: Reeva Rai, a rising corporate star is offered a position in a top-notch PR agency, Media Vision PR. It is her time to… Continue reading Trust Me Not by Ankita Verma Datta #BookReview
My challenge for 2017 was 50 books. 50 books that I had not pre-selected or vetted for reviews. 50 books that I picked up, read, enjoyed (some DNF-ed, but that's okay). And today, at the end of the year, I can proudly say that I have finished reading 75 books this year! To prove to… Continue reading Bookish wrap-up 2017!
I have an idea too. Let me spend the rest of this post outlining why I didn't like this book, and you could nod your head along with me at the end of every paragraph. "Pinto has an Idea" by Rajeev Saxena is the author's debut novel. The plot of the story goes like this:… Continue reading Pinto Has An Idea by Rajeev Saxena #BookReview

In my second post for my #ChristmasReads series, I am featuring a book that I thoroughly loved and enjoyed: The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey. Grab a cup of hot chocolate and marshmallows, and let's go through this book!
Okay. Don't judge me for reading a book written by a celebrity. Don't. I attended the Times Lit Fest at Mumbai where Soha Ali Khan spoke about her book, and I'm blown away by how smartly and confidently she presents herself to the world. Mind you, it's a big feat to keep your cool when Suhel Seth is interviewing you in front of a packed audience!
This book is not going to be everyone's cup of tea. But, this book is also a must-read for various reasons. I kept the book aside for a day before writing this review. Probably because this is the first time I'm reviewing a memoir. Or probably because the book was such a whirlwind of emotions, I needed to take a minute to balance myself. Either way, here I am, reviewing one of the best books I've read this year - If I Had To Tell It Again by Gayathri Prabhu.
I began my #ChristmasReads TBR with this book. While this book seemed like a drag in many places, I did love the ending of "The Gift". Let's discuss this book today. Grab your peppermint tea, and here we go!
First things first, I'm not a classics fan. Yes, the only Jane Austen work I've read is Pride and Prejudice (and I only just managed to finish 66% of the book before putting it away for the dust-mites.) Yet, when I was sent an ARC of Austenistan by the kind people of Bloomsbury India (LOVE YOU SO MUCH!), I felt mildly curious. Would I be able to follow the seven short stories in the anthology, with my crutch of not being acquainted with Austen's works? Seven dazzling and brilliant short stories later, I hold this book with both my hands and a smile on my face: I thoroughly loved Austenistan. And my dear amigos, I may actually give a second chance to Jane Austen.
