If you're in the mood to travel in Paris to sip on good coffee and to eat warm croissants, while staring at the love of your life... AND if you're totally broke, and don't have 'the love of your life' at your beck and call, the Just One Day series is a must-read! Just kidding.… Continue reading Why The Just One Day series is a series you’ll remember for a lifetime.
If you haven't read 'Me Before You' by Jojo Moyes till today, you probably Live on another planet Are as heartless as the step sister of the wicked witch who kidnaps Hansel and Gretel. Haven't been part of the online hype surrounding the book when the eponymous movie starring Sam Claflin (the hotness) and Emilia Clarke (of GoT fame) and Matthew Lewis (yes, our dearest Neville!) released in 2016. Anyway, it's never too late to read Me Before You. And if you choose to read Me Before You in this upcoming Valentine's Day week, you can have the awesome pleasure of reading ALL the books in the Me Before You trilogy. 'After You' and 'Still Me'. This post is a bookish discussion on "Me Before You".
When I picked this book up, I felt that it would not be my cup of tea. The start of the story felt a bit bumpy, and I couldn't wait to DNF the book. But, this book was featured in Chicago Review of Books's "Most Anticipated Reads of 2018", and I wanted to plough through… Continue reading Our Lady of the Prairie by Thisbe Nissen #BookReview
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!
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.
This year has been a year of many 'reading' firsts. My first slipstream fiction book- 11.22.63 by Stephen King, my first review copy- Served With Love by Priyanka Menon, and now, my first Urban Fantasy fiction read- Hell! No Saints in Paradise by A.K. Asif. I may also add that this is the first book I've read… Continue reading Hell! No Saints In Paradise – A.K. Asif #BookReview
If I could get married to a literary character, Eleanor Oliphant would be the apple of my eye. (Please take this as an exaggeration, not as a sign of my sexuality.) A few months ago, I did end up spotting this book in many bookstagrammer's feeds. The house made up of matchboxes, the neat cursive… Continue reading Why Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fabulous!
