10 Gulab Jamuns by Sandhya Acharya | Book Review

I read a lot of children’s books, on a daily basis actually, as it’s part of my nightly ritual with my son. But I rarely review them, because frankly I just have no time to review any more books than I already do. However this is one book I just had to share. I first […]

Wonder by R. J. Palacio – Book Review

I have to admit that I normally don’t read a lot of middle grade, especially realistic fiction. If and when I do pick up middle-grade, it’s mostly fantasy, because let’s face it, there are some amazing reads in the genre. But this book piqued my curiosity, partly because of the relatively unique story line, and […]

Part Star Part Dust by L. M. Valiram – Book Review

This book. I don’t even know where to begin. But I do know that trying to capture how this book made me feel in a few words or paragraphs even, seems like a daunting task. Because after completing this book, I was kind of an emotional wreck, and I had to take some time to […]

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone – Audiobook Review

I am not sure if I have ever mentioned this before (probably not), but ever since I first started blogging about books, I have often casually wondered about how it would have been if I had started blogging & recording my thoughts about books ever since I first started reading them. Well okay, I don’t […]

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 […]
