"The Fork, the Witch, and the Worm" by Christopher Paolini hit the bookshelves eight years after "Inheritance" was published. Paolini does not intend for this book to extend upon the story he wrapped up in Inheritance. Rather, it's a collection of short stories which expands upon the backstories of the characters in the series and takes us further into the past of the fantastic world of Alagaësia.

This book has been on my TBR since forever. I loved the concept of "The Lovely Bones": a ghost narrating the story of the lives that her near and dear ones lead post her death, from her point of view. Literally a ghost story. This post is not a review, it's a discussion post. I've… Continue reading The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
I received a review copy of "Tradition" by Brendan Kiely from Penguin India. Thank you so much! There's an interesting quote mentioned at the beginning of this book, which sets the tone for the topic the author wishes to highlight in his book. There's really no such thing as the "voiceless." There are only the… Continue reading #MithilaReviewsBooks – Tradition by Brendan Kiely
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.
Do I love the cover of this book more than the plot, or do I love the plot more than the cover? Do I love Imogen more than Jule or Jule more than Imogen? Am I fan of E. Lockhart or am I fan of E. Lockhart?
Genuine Fraud by E. Lockhart is that psychological thriller which will keep your jaw to the floor as you race to finish the book in less than three hours. (I would have managed reading the book in two hours, but my study timetable stared at me as murderously as Imogen/Jule)
Fans of Rainbow Rowell, Gayle Forman, Stephanie Perkins, Jenny Han, Holly Black, Ally Carter, Matt de la Pena, David Levithan, Kelly Link, Myra McEntire, Laini Taylor and Kiersten White, rejoice. You can read short stories by your favourite YA authors (specially those of you who have read all the works by the above authors, and… Continue reading My True Love Gave To Me: Twelve Holiday Stories #ChristmasReads
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?
