#MithilaReviewsBooks – A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman

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

Humour, YA Fiction

Clara Voyant by Rachelle Delaney #BookReview

Clara Voyant will be published by Penguin Random House Canada on 15 May 2018, but I can already "predict" that this book will be a really popular YA fiction read. The plot of the book goes like this: Clara and her mother, Gaby, are currently residing in the most weird-coolest places, Kensington Market. Kensington Market is a haven for the free spirits, and also for people like Gaby who wish to "follow their bliss". Clara's grandmother has shifted to Florida, and hence Clara's only connection to a sane relative has gone for a toss.  She starts her middle school year by joining the school newspaper team, Gazette, in order to sharpen her investigative journalistic skills. The Editor, Wesley is the most ambitious girl you'll ever meet. Her plans for the newspaper are designed in a way that will ultimately get her into the best journalism school in the area. And amidst this ambitious drive, Clara gets assigned the most boring task ever - writing horoscopes for the fortnightly newspaper.  What happens next? Clara's 'randomly-put-together' and 'non-scientific' horoscopes actually start becoming true. Now, Clara is a middle school sensation! However, Clara's journalistic and astrological skills are soon put to the test when a mystery unravels in her middle school. Can Clara predict the future and save the day?

#HilariousReads : When Opposites Meet by Sachin Garg 

You are, I am sure, acquainted with these clichéd thoughts about love: Opposites attract. You'll find love in the most unlikeliest of places. Love will change you for the better.  "When Opposites Meet" by Sachin Garg is a book that celebrates these clichéd thoughts about love, in the form of three completely un-cliched stories. And I, for once, was totally comfortable reading a Rom-Com fiction novel.
