The Palace of Illusions – Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni #BookReview

To be honest, this book was on my TBR for a long time. I used to steal a glance at this awesome green and yellow glittery cover in the library. But I always ended up picking another Jeffrey Archer / Dan Brown/ John Grisham book. Almost all my GoodReads friends had already put this book on their ‘read’ shelf. I don’t know why I didn’t join the bandwagon then.

Yet, here I am, having read this awesome work of fiction and wondering how I spent so many years of my life in ignorance. Read my full (with few spoilers) review over at my blog!

Peter Houghton vs Kevin Khatchadourian #BookReviews

“Can you hate someone for what they have done, but still love them for whom they had been?” ― Jodi Picoult, Nineteen Minutes “It’s far less important to me to be liked these days than to be understood.” ― Lionel Shriver, We Need to Talk About Kevin Peter Houghton is the gun-toting teenaged school shooter…

Magically musical #BookReview

This is the first book I read after finishing up with exams. I got this book from the library. I read the author’s name, the blurb, and decided that this would be my first summer vacation read. I did not check the GoodReads review before picking up this book, as usual. And that’s partly because I have already read ‘ Five People You Meet In Heaven’ and ‘Have a Little Faith’, and feel that I can trust Mitch Albom with not ruining my first summer vacation read. (Do I need to mention one more time that I’m thoroughly enjoying my summer vacations? 😛 )

Can you guess the name of the book?

Have I finally started liking romcoms?#BookReview

Let me get this straight: I used to like romance fiction, when I was fifteen. You know, when I was doe-eyed and eager to explore more about the world of romance. I had too many questions, and infinite gigabytes of resources available at the tap of a screen. Yet, I preferred to peruse through romance…

Pretty Little Bookshelves

GoodReads tells me I’ve read 173 books till date. But you and I know, that I had a reading life before I joined GoodReads. A beautiful summer time when I used to read Enid Blyton books one a day. When I graduated to Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys, I continued in the same fashion. That was till the day I could predict entire plots even before reaching 1/4th of the book.

At this point, I graduated to reading fiction. The real fiction. Catch my journey in the world of reading, in the form of mini reviews.

The Geek’s Guide to Unrequited Love – Sarvenaz Tash #BookReview

Geeks. This word will bring to your mind the done-to-death stereotype: Ugly teeth, full-rimmed thick glasses, out-of-fashion clothes and weird hair. And talks a lot about a particular book / series of books. Or in short, me. If you believed that all geeks are tech junkies, this definition by the Cambridge Dictionary would surprise you. Now,…
