This was the first book I started reading post my exams in May. Thanks to all the book reviewers and bloggers who I trust, who seemed to have loved and adored this book. And I totally knew that this could NOT be a book that was 'just-all-about-the-hype'. Five chapters into the book, disaster struck. I… Continue reading #MithilaReviewsBooks – A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman
Okay, this was one of the few books I really enjoyed reading this year. It got me out of my reading slump like a magnet attracts iron, and I finished the last 33% of the book in one sitting. Can you even believe that? Once I finished reading the book, I headed over to GoodReads… Continue reading #MithilaReviewsBooks – Secret Passages in a Hillside Town by Pasi Ilmari Jääskeläinen
"Earth to Centauri: Alien Hunt" by Kumar L. is a science fiction book that continues the story of Captain Anara, her crew consisting of Ryan and Major Rawat, Manisha and Madhavan, the aliens discovered on the planet HuZryss in the Alpha Centauri star system and the humans, Lucy and Joe and the unborn child they brought home from Alpha Centauri.
I have noticed that I am a fan of romantic comedy books, and not the full blown romance novels. Just saying. Getting back to the review. "Agnes and the Hitman" is a must read for readers who wish to read a romance book where the characters are unconventional, and the plot, a total refresher to… Continue reading Agnes and the Hitman by Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer

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!
