Of Curses and Kisses by Sandhya Menon – Thoughts

A desi/Indian re-telling of one of my favorite fairy tales- Beauty and the Beast, by a soon turning out to be a go-to author for romances with Indian protagonists – Sandhya Menon. It was all that I had expected and more 🙂 I’ve only read one other book by Sandhya – When Dimple met Rishi,Continue reading “Of Curses and Kisses by Sandhya Menon – Thoughts”

The Black Hawks (Articles of Faith #1) by David Wragg – Thoughts

I gave this debut a 3.5 stars, for its debut effort and entertainment factor. This story has a new narration angle, where our protagonist Chel is not hero-like, and is thrown into extremely violent circumstances unexpectedly, where he has to protect his life and the life of one of the crown Princes – Prince Tarfel.Continue reading “The Black Hawks (Articles of Faith #1) by David Wragg – Thoughts”

The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood – Thoughts

I am a sucker for dystopian fiction, so I knew I would enjoy this book when I did get to read it. Why I hadn’t read it until now, was because of the subject of the book. The fact that I listened to the audiobook version narrated by the lovely Elisabeth Moss, slightly softened theContinue reading “The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood – Thoughts”

Saris and the City by Rekha Waheed – Thoughts

I skim read this book, once I was half way through and realised I wasnt invested in the story or any of the characters at all. For me, that’s as good as DNF-ing the book. This book was one of the South Asian Reading Challenge backlist BOTM for February and I really wanted to likeContinue reading “Saris and the City by Rekha Waheed – Thoughts”

Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones – Thoughts

No book is really worth reading at the age of ten, which is not equally, and often, far more – worth reading at the age of fifty and beyond – C.S. Lewis Although I’m not fifty yet, I’m learning to appreciate the wise words of C.S Lewis, now that I have discovered and loved theContinue reading “Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones – Thoughts”

Bringing Down the Duke by Evie Dunmore My rating: 4 of 5 stars     What a delightful beginning to the reading month of February – the month known for romance and love 😉 ❤ I’ve become a cynic when it comes to romance novels or movies in general, and usually avoid picking up anContinue reading “Bringing Down the Duke by Evie Dunmore – Thoughts”
