Wonder by R.J. Palacio #BookReview

Earlier this year, my blogging circle was going gaga over this book – Wonder by R.J. Palacio. I trust the recommendations of most of these bloggers and often pick up books based on their suggestion. This time, however, I thought ‘Wonder’ would be way too serious and emotional- to say the …

Children of Blood and Bone #BookReview

‘Children of Blood and Bone’ has been doing the rounds on Instagram since like forever. Fantasy wasn’t my favorite genre and I always thought that I wouldn’t in my right mind, buy books on this subject. When Harry Potter was released 20 years ago, my cousins tried their level best …

Koi Good News? #BookReview

I had seen this book ‘Koi Good News?‘ doing the rounds on Instagram for the last two weeks. The title itself piqued my interest because I am being asked this question for the whole of my wedded life. And thus, I decided to give it a shot and guess what? …

The Upside of Unrequited #BookReview

With an average of 4.03 in Goodreads, I thought this book- The Upside of Unrequited would be spectacular. But clearly, that wasn’t the case. So, what went wrong? The Plot: The Upside of Unrequited is Molly Peskin-Suso’s story. She is super artistic with crafts and desserts, is fun and hoping to get …

Small is Big #BookReview

Microtales are quite the in thing these days. These stories speak a lot in fewer words and often leaves the reader with a huge scope of imagination. I salute those who can write flash fiction, 55ers and I have always been a fan of micro tales. It needs creativity and a vivid …

The Perils of Being Moderately Famous #BookReview

I can see those judgey eyes. But here’s the thing. I like Soha Ali Khan. She is one of the underrated actors in our Film industry and when I came to know that she had written a book, I knew I had to read it. Period. The title The Perils …

A House for Happy Mothers #BookReview

I read the blurb of A House for Happy Mothers and thought ‘Wow! This is going to be one hell of a story!’. I haven’t read a book before that talked about surrogacy and hence I was so looking forward to reading this book. But was I impressed? Read to …

Murder on the Orient Express #BookReview

I am a die-hard Agatha Christie fan. It all began when I read her book ‘And then there were none‘. That book was an eye-opener, for crime-fiction was never my genre. Of course, like any other kid, I used to devour Nancy Drew series from the school library (There wouldn’t be …

2018 Reading Challenges

2017 was just horrendous when it came to reading. It even made me think if I had over-committed myself by setting a target of 52 books, one book per week, for the Goodreads Challenge. But if you really know me, you would also know that it was an easy-to-achieve goal. …
