One of my friends Jayati is hosting ‘The Coffee Readathon‘, and since I love my coffee, I thought this was a cool way to read all the books I’ve been receivingContinue reading “My TBR for ‘The Coffee Readathon’ – Updated with books I actually read :)”

There’s Something About Sweetie by Sandhya Menon – Thoughts

“Knowing her, is loving her“ There’s Something About Sweetie is the second YA romance novel from the Dimpleverse series. In the first book, ‘When Dimple Met Rishi’, we get to see career minded, level headed, independent Dimple fall in love with traditional, romantic Rishi. In this book, we get to see Rishi’s younger brother fallContinue reading “There’s Something About Sweetie by Sandhya Menon – Thoughts”

Heir of Fury (Roxanne Fosch Files #3 – Finale) by Jina S. Bazzar – Thoughts

I have a special relationship with the Roxanne Fosch books, because this was the first fantasy/sci-fi ARC that I had reviewed as a blogger. I had put my heart and soul into reading and reviewing the books in this series and chatting with the author, Jina, who is an amazing human being and a veryContinue reading “Heir of Fury (Roxanne Fosch Files #3 – Finale) by Jina S.

The Night Country (Hazel Wood #2) by Melissa Albert – Thoughts

I’ve not been very active on the blogging site this week, since I’m part on vacation and part on house arrest. So I’m spending time watching Netflix (just binge watched Locke and Key and loved it!!!) and trying to catch up with reading, along with socializing and spending time with the in laws 🙂 So,Continue reading “The Night Country (Hazel Wood #2) by Melissa Albert – Thoughts”

Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi – Thoughts

This is an illustrated novel that people should read. Just another of those books that simplifies something complex so that its easily digested by the common reader and doesn’t leave them feeling upset or with a stomach ache. But does leave them with slightly more information, understanding and knowledge about one misunderstood and highly judgedContinue reading “Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi – Thoughts”

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”
