Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows by Balli Kaur Jaswal – Thoughts

This was my last read of Jan 2020, and I’m glad I ended my reading month with this delightful and relevant book. Also, this would be my second book as part of the South Asian Reading Challenge pick this year, which I replaced for Scavenge the Stars, since I wasn’t able to get my handsContinue reading “Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows by Balli Kaur Jaswal – Thoughts”

A Conjuring of Light (Shades of Magic #3) by VE Schwab – Thoughts

“Anoshe – Until Another Day“…   Sigggghhhhhhhhhh! Another epic series, and another heart breaking farewell to some of my favourite characters from a book. This has been added to my all-time favorite series hall of fame shelf, along with the Harry Potter books and The Six of Crows books. I am literally feeling the sameContinue reading “A Conjuring of Light (Shades of Magic #3) by VE Schwab – 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”

A Ladder To The Sky by John Boyne – Thoughts and Book Exchange/Book Giveaway!

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.

American Gods by Neil Gaiman – Book Thoughts

What a book, guys. And what a story! I’m absolutely blown away and can’t wait to see the words on screen now. Sadly, the whole book hasn’t been converted into a complete series so I cant binge watch, but nevertheless, something is better than nothing 🙂 I decided to read this book, since I sawContinue reading “American Gods by Neil Gaiman – Book Thoughts”

The Institute by Stephen King – Book Thoughts

Finally, I read a Stephen King!! One popular, mainstream and much loved author, who was on my list to read forever. And I’m glad I read this book. I usually have a ‘read the book first’ and ‘watch the screen adaptation later’ rule, but there have been some exceptions to this rule and Stephen King’sContinue reading “The Institute by Stephen King – Book Thoughts”

Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo – Book Thoughts

This is the first book I’ve read from the popular and widely loved author – Leigh Bardugo. So, I think in that respect, I was a blank slate and that might have some affect on my thoughts on this book. This is Leigh Bardugo’s first foray in the adult fantasy genre and boy was itContinue reading “Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo – Book Thoughts”

The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow – Book Thoughts

I just came back from a vacation in a familiar magical city, Goa, and luckily, this book was the only thing that saved me from having a full blown post vacation blues 🙂 The book blurb from Goodreads says: EVERY STORY OPENS A DOOR In a sprawling mansion filled with exotic treasures, January Scaller isContinue reading “The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E.
