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 – 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”

My So-Called Bollywood Life by Nisha Sharma – Thoughts

Children of Virtue and Vengeance by Tomi Adeyemi – Thoughts

Book two in the Orisha trilogy and the sequel for ‘Children of Blood and Bone’. I was expecting a lot from the second book since the first one had been a smashing debut that I had been completely pulled into. And like all things that I have great expectations with, this one left me disappointed.Continue reading “Children of Virtue and Vengeance by Tomi Adeyemi – Thoughts”

The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abbi Waxman – Thoughts

She thought of books as medication and sanctuary and the source of all good things. I think if I had a fantasy alternate life, I’d be living Nina Hill’s life. I literally felt like I was reading about a version of me living in a parallel universe! I think every reader who loves books toContinue reading “The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abbi Waxman – Thoughts”

I had this book on my TBR shelf since a year, and thanks to the Unread Shelf Project 2020 challenge, I finally read this, and now I’m wondering, what took me so long? It’s a John Boyne book after all..I should have known he couldn’t go wrong, especially after A Heart’s Invisible Furies 🙂 HowContinue reading “A Ladder To The Sky by John Boyne – Thoughts and Book Exchange/Book Giveaway!”

A Gathering of Shadows (Shades of Magic #2) by V.E. Schwab – This Reader’s Thoughts

I’m already cursing myself that I finished the second book and don’t have the final one nearby, so I can start reading it already! Ugh!!! Because I am so considerate of everyone’s time (grin :D), if you don’t want to read the rest of my post and my thoughts, well, then, in a short summary,Continue reading “A Gathering of Shadows (Shades of Magic #2) by V.E.
