The boy in the striped pyjamas by John Boyne

Blurb vs Trailer The blurb just suggested about Bruno being sad to be moved out of Berlin and is confused about why they have to go to ‘Out-with’ (Auschwitz) and something about the Fury. The trailer portrays some enemy to be defeated and moving so Bruno is losing friends, something really bad and a war…

The secret dreamworld of a shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella

I have read Sophie Kinsella’s work and this was where it all started in school. This book was one of the few ones that all of my group read. I think it was mainly cause of the teenage stage that we were in. We loved Rebecca Bloomwood to no bounds. Now as we have seen…

The old-girl network by Catherine Alliott

The book blurb suggests a lot of high school drama which follows the protagonist to her present and catches hold of her. She thinks it is harmless and all she has to do is pull her strings. But the book is much much more than high school drama. It is real life crazy creepy drama and…

Major Pettigrew’s last stand by Helen Simonson

I have read countless romances but never of an old couple falling love and this was indeed beautiful.

Major Pettigrew and Mrs. Ali are one of my favorite couples…

Geekerella by Ashley Poston

Damn! This book is so cute. We all know the storyline and how it is going to end and how it is going to flow overall. I thought it’d be predictable but then one of my friends asked me to read it. And I decided to give it a shot for the theme #SomethingLight. It…

Solo by Jill Mansell

Hated this book! The characters are so stereotypical which isn’t really a problem but the whole books seemed so boring and there was nothing that made me turn the pages of the book. I skipped a few things here and there to see if there was something in the end that would’ve made it better…

The house that BJ built by Anuja Chauhan

This is like a spin-off to the book – Those pricey Thakur girls. That book was based on the 5 daughters of the Justice Laxmi Narayan Thakur and his wife Mamta, who were named alphabetically. The story revolved around their lives with a lot of Indian drama and laughter. This book is based when the 5…

The sun is also a star by Nicola Yoon

I’m still in two minds about it. I love the way it started. And how the author put every character’s perspective in mostly all the scenes and truly stood by – there are always two sides to a story. Usually, I find these things a bit overdone and quite confusing but here the flow is…

Anna and the French kiss by Stephanie Perkins

I expected this book to be just the way it turned out to be. It was a like complete package of high school drama with one of the protagonists already dating someone else, everyone having a crush on the cute boy, mean girls, amazing friends, perfect yet not so perfect life but in foreign. It…

We’ve heard the saying opposites attract countless times, but what is the aftermath? Sure, winds blew, birds flew, and love bloomed, but can they really work it out despite all their differences?

Flying without wings by Ravinder Singh

The last time I read a Ravinder Singh was years back when I read I too had a love story and I wasn’t a big fan of it but it was okay and now when I got this book for reviewing I was happy that the author’s writing has improved so much. I know I…

Vicious Circle by Wilbur Smith

Wilbur Smith comes high in recommendations and I get swooned and carried away with suspense and thrillers so picked this one up for my #7shadesofbooks theme. So my expectations were pretty high when I started reading this one. I can’t say I was disappointed but neither was I pleased. I have heard so highly of…

The Subtle art of not giving a fuck By Mark Manson

I haven’t picked up a self-help book in ages, the last time I did was around 5 years back that too only ChickenSoups. In this books, the author connects so well with the reader by sharing his own personal experiences with confidence and pride and he says how will you learn if you don’t make…

1 Page at a time by Adam J Kurtz

This book is so full of creative prompts and random pages that make you feel it’s vague but when you are at it. It is just so much fun. Check out #1Pageatatime on Instagram to check what others did with the book Here are some of my scribbles.

Junk By Melvin Burgess

Junk by Melvin Burgess. This book was written in 1996 and it created quite a buzz during that time whilst blaming Burgess to write a book about junkies and drugs and trying to spoil the readers. But these were the reviews only from the people who just the book by its cover and not by…

Sweet Trouble by Susan Mallery

Sweet Trouble – Susan This is the 3rd book of the baking sister series but being honest, this is the only one I read. After a long time, I picked up a romance novel and I’m glad that I picked this one. It was the first time, I read any Mills&Boon Series and I’m in…

Those pricey thakur girls by Anuja Chauhan

Those Pricey Thakur Girls by Anuja Chauhan A wittingly well-written book This was my first of Anuja Chauhan and I can’t deny the fact that I’m swooned and I loved every detail the book had to give to us. The storyline and the character sketch is on point. Every character is quirkier than the other…
