Ajaya by Anand Neelakantan | Not Just a Book Review – Part 1

Ganesha’s Sweet Tooth by Emily Haynes & Sanjay Patel | Children’s Book Review (Ages 3 – 8)

Ganesha’s Sweet Tooth is a fantasy folklore loosely based on  Hindu mythology.  It’s a charming and engaging tale with very colorful and whimsical illustrations. And normally, I am not one to obsess over art and illustrations; I usually ignore them. Unless they jump out at me. These ones did, and I loved them. Every page […]

This review took a long time coming, mostly because I was having a hard time figuring out a concise way of fully expressing the intricacies weaved through the layers that are showcased in this story.

The Love That Split The World by Emily Henry | Book Review (New Release)

This book is a very difficult one to summarize, or even box into one genre, but I am going to try.  My first instinct is to slot it as YA contemporary, but there is also some fantasy/ alternate reality, a little time-travel – so you see, it is a mixed bag of sorts. The plot […]

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen | Reviewing Classic Literature

“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.” – Thus begins Pride and Prejudice – Jane Austen’s witty comedy of manners. If you notice, the very first sentence itself is a masterpiece of tongue-in-cheek social commentary, and instantly paints a picture of […]
