Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg – Book Review

The first time that I really took notice of Sheryl Sandberg was when she wrote a Facebook post about losing her husband (this was back in 2015). I am not sure exactly what it was about that post, but I remember thinking about it for days on end, and hoping that things turn out all right […]

Geekerella – Where Fairytales meet Fandoms | Book Review

I came across this book quite by accident. I was drafting a post on How to Get Started with Audiobooks, and I wanted to be thorough and include a lot of examples and recommendations, so that it’s not just an info dumpy post, but something that people who want to get started with audio-books can […]

Yes Please by Amy Poehler – A disappointment

I have to admit that I went into this book with high expectations. When I picked this book, I had just read (and loved) Bossypants, and as television personalities, I like both Tina Fey and Amy Poehler  equally. So even before I started reading this book, I was expecting to like it a lot. But […]

The Marriage Pact by Michelle Richmond

I got a free ARC (Advance Reader Copy) of this book from NetGalley, when I was looking to read a good mystery/thriller, so it was a perfect fit, or so it seemed at the time. But now that I have read this book, I have mixed feelings towards it. The plot of this book revolves […]

When Dimple Met Rishi – Review and Rave

This book, oh my God (or rather Oh my Gods, as Rishi would say), it was such an adorable read, that I had a stupid grin on my face all the time that I was reading it, and you know what, I couldn’t even shake off the darn grin once the book was over. However, […]

The Simplicity of Cider by Amy Reichert | Book Review

I picked this book up on a whim, when it was offered as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) on NetGalley, and thankfully the gamble paid off. It’s a sweet and charming read. The story revolves around Sanna, a prickly, yet quiet and lonesome girl, whose whole world revolves around her family orchard, until single Dad […]

Everything Everything – Book Review (Spoiler Free)

Everything, Everything is the story of an 18 year old girl named Madeline, who is pretty much allergic to everything in the world, and I mean this quite literally.  She has this rare disease called Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (SCID for short), more commonly known as the ‘bubble baby disease’. Her sickness basically requires her to be […]

Half Girlfriend Review / Therapeutic Rant on Love & Consent

I usually refrain from outright criticism, which is why you will hardly ever see 1 or 2 star reviews on here, as I do realize how much effort goes into a book, and believe me, I can appreciate that, but after going through a book like this and frying some of my precious brain cells, […]

Being Mortal by Atul Gawande – A Must Read – for Everyone!

It’s rare that I start a review with a glorious recommendation (or a complete rejection for that matter). But it’s also rare that I come across a book like Being Mortal. So let me say it straight out – this one is a must-read for everyone (yes, everyone)! Well unless you don’t know (or care […]

Jugnu – Book Review

Before I get into this review, I want to mention something about the star rating right away – this book holds the distinction of being the first indie romance to get 5 stars from me. Now don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that I haven’t ever read anything better than this. I have […]
