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 […]

Jane Eyre – Book Review (5 stars)

When I started reading this book, I found it supremely boring (no don’t kill me yet, hold your horses), and it was a struggle to keep at it. In fact, I would have certainly DNFed it, if not for the fact that I was buddy-reading this book with Bookish Muggle, and I really did not […]

Fifty Shades Of Grey Trilogy – My Conflicting Thoughts

This is a post I have procrastinated for the longest time, as it’s been quite a while that I read this series; I guess a couple of years at-least. But now with all the hype surrounding the movie adaptation of the 2nd book, Fifty Shades Darker (which released today), I thought it is about time, I […]

If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo | Book Review

If I Was Your Girl is a prime example of book publishing done right. It’s a contemporary YA novel featuring a transgender woman as its main character, written by an author who is a transgender female herself. And if I am not wrong, so is the audio-book narrator, and the model on the cover of […]

The Right-Wrong Companion Series by Varsha Dixit | Review

This post is a three-in-one review of Rupa Publications’ Right/Wrong Companion Series by Varsha Dixit. Rupa Publications approached me for reviewing Varsha Dixit’s latest Rightfully Wrong, Wrongfully Right, and I was considering doing it, as I had read and enjoyed Only Wheat, Not White (OWNW) by the same author. But when I got to know that […]

The Girl on The Train (Book Review) – Movie Releases on October 7

I have read very few reviews, or even mentions of this book, which do not include a comparison with Gone Girl. So let me address this elephant in the room first. I haven’t read Gone Girl, though I have seen the movie (I know that is not the same thing at all), and I did […]

Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson (A ‘funny’ mental health memoir) | Book Review

It is apt that this review follows my review of Bossypants, as this was the second book that I consumed in the audio format. From my initial (relatively ignorant) POV, these two books had a lot in common. Both met my criteria for picking up audio books – Non-fiction – check Memoir – check Read […]

Bossypants by Tina Fey | Book Review (5 shining stars)

Bossypants is the first ever book I heard instead of read. It introduced me to the phenomena that is audio-books, and I am totally addicted now! It helped that this book was pretty darn awesome, but I had found a way to “read”  when I normally couldn’t (while cooking/cleaning/driving)  and I was overjoyed about the possibilities! Coming to the book – […]
