The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang – Thoughts

“They trained her to win the war. She intended to end it….” I’m trying hard to get over The Poppy War, and move on to my next book. I thought I might need to read something fluffy or light but I’m just not feeling it, after finishing this book. Bookish Discussion: Ever learned history fromContinue reading “The Poppy War by R.F.

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.

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”

Looking for Alaska by John Green – Book Review

I think the problem with reading a John Green book is that if you started with the exceptionally heart breaking but amazing book of his – The Fault in our Stars, then every other book that you read, although good in their own way, kind of falls short in comparison. I had read Paper TownsContinue reading “Looking for Alaska by John Green – Book Review”

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi – Book Review

I am blessed that I have a local library and Waterstones just at a walking distance from my home and workplace. So you can imagine, I make a trip every week to either of these places, just to feed my soul, and spend some money lol 😀 So, at Waterstones, there is this really cute bookseller,Continue reading “Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi – Book Review”

The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert – A book review

My fingers are trembling right now. I literally just finished reading this book. And I can’t explain how I’m feeling right now. I haven’t felt like this in a long time. It is a sort of adrenaline rush that is similar to how I feel after watching a particularly scary movie, with an ending thatContinue reading “The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert – A book review”

Reading romances – Fangirl & When Dimple met Rishi

I’m back from my long vacation and decided that instead of bombarding everyone with multiple posts, written days apart, I will just combine the two recent books I finished before and during the vacation into a single post, and write a separate one this week on my travelogue 🙂 I used to be a romanceContinue reading “Reading romances – Fangirl & When Dimple met Rishi”

Book Review: A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness

Oh the summer days! I love them so much, especially here in the UK, where sunshine is so rare the rest of the year. Also, with all the summer reading guides I have been able to refer to and my own TBR list for the summer, I can’t wait to compile my Summer reading listContinue reading “Book Review: A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness”
