“Well Read Black Girl – Gloria Edim”

Title – “Well Read Black Girl”

Author – Glory Edim.

Publisher’s – Ballantine Books.

Book Lenght – 272 pages.

Blurb as on Amazon –

NOMINATED FOR AN NAACP IMAGE AWARD • An inspiring collection of essays by black women writers, curated by the founder of the popular book club Well-Read Black Girl, on the importance of recognizing ourselves in literature.

“Yes, Well-Read Black Girl is as good as it sounds. . . . [Glory Edim] gathers an all-star cast of contributors—among them Lynn Nottage, Jesmyn Ward, and Gabourey Sidibe.”—O: The Oprah Magazine

Remember that moment when you first encountered a character who seemed to be written just for you? That feeling of belonging remains with readers the rest of their lives—but not everyone regularly sees themselves in the pages of a book. In this timely anthology, Glory Edim brings together original essays by some of our best black women writers to shine a light on how important it is that we all—regardless of gender, race, religion, or ability—have the opportunity to find ourselves in literature.

Contributors include Jesmyn Ward (Sing, Unburied, Sing), Lynn Nottage (Sweat), Jacqueline Woodson (Another Brooklyn), Gabourey Sidibe (This Is Just My Face), Morgan Jerkins (This Will Be My Undoing), Tayari Jones (An American Marriage), Rebecca Walker (Black, White and Jewish), and Barbara Smith (Home Girls: A Black Feminist Anthology)

Whether it’s learning about the complexities of femalehood from Zora Neale Hurston and Toni Morrison, finding a new type of love in The Color Purple, or using mythology to craft an alternative black future, the subjects of each essay remind us why we turn to books in times of both struggle and relaxation. As she has done with her book club–turned–online community Well-Read Black Girl, in this anthology Glory Edim has created a space in which black women’s writing and knowledge and life experiences are lifted up, to be shared with all readers who value the power of a story to help us understand the world and ourselves.

My Review – This Book is a Collection of Anthology written by Black  Women Authors.
This Book has Extracts and Essays from Well known books and Authors like Jesmyn Ward (Sing, Unburied, Sing), Lynn Nottage (Sweat), Jacqueline Woodson (Another Brooklyn), Gabourey Sidibe (This Is Just My Face), Morgan Jerkins (This Will Be My Undoing), Tayari Jones (An American Marriage), Rebecca Walker (Black, White and Jewish), and Barbara Smith (Home Girls: A Black Feminist Anthology). The Impressive selection of Essays, Extracts of stories is curated by @wellreadblackgirl
and this book is one of the most unique yet perfect reads for anyone regardless of the Gender, Race or Heritage. You have to read it and soak it all up and let it sink in and impact you in ways that will help you understand things in a new perspective.

Glory Edim has captured the essence of exploration of literature through the Anthologies which represents Black Women Authors through various phases of their life (From being a little girl to a woman)
This Book is an Insightful book about Inspiring Stories, People, Literature, and Exploring one’s identity through stories and experiences.

One of the Best Reads I’ve come across in my life & would absolutely recommend it that every single one of you should read it.

The Best part is the References you get by the author who suggest you to read similar stories across Genre’s and it’s honestly the Book References are the best one’s.

“Sea Prayer by Khaled Hosseini.”

Title – Sea Prayer.

Author – Khaled Hosseini.

Pages – 48.

Blurb as on Goodreads -A short, powerful, illustrated book written by Khaled Hosseini in response to the current refugee crisis, Sea Prayer is composed in the form of a letter, from a father to his son, on the eve of their journey. Watching over his sleeping son, the father reflects on the dangerous sea-crossing that lies before them. It is also a vivid portrait of their life in Homs, Syria, before the war, and of that city’s swift transformation from a home into a deadly war zone.

Impelled to write this story by the haunting image of young Alan Kurdi, the three-year-old Syrian boy whose body washed upon the beach in Turkey in September 2015, Hosseini hopes to pay tribute to the millions of families, like Kurdi’s, who have been splintered and forced from home by war and persecution, and he will donate author proceeds from this book to the UNHCR (the UN Refugee Agency) and The Khaled Hosseini Foundation to help fund lifesaving relief efforts to help refugees around the globe. Hosseini is also a Goodwill Envoy to the UNHCR, and the founder of The Khaled Hosseini Foundation, a nonprofit that provides humanitarian assistance to the people of Afghanistan.

My Review –

“Sea Prayer by Khaled Hosseini.”

This beautifully illustrated book is my pick for #bnbreadathon Prompt 3 @booksnbeyondbox

unapologeticreader #Bibliophileworldblogreviews

Review – Sea Prayer isn’t just a book it’s one of those Masterpieces that will capture your heart and soul and you won’t be able to forget the message this book conveys for days, weeks, months or may be Years to come.

Sea Prayer is a tale of Syrian Refugees. This book is written in a Epistolary format (Letter writing)
A letter from a loving father to his son on the night of their journey from the War prone country. He fears for the safety of his son as the journey is life threatening and dangerous one.
The Letter initially emphasizes on the beautiful memories and moments of his life and through the letter he expresses how his country today is surrounded by war, destruction.
This book is inspired by the story of a little three years old boy Alan Kurdi who died in the attempts to escape from his war prone country along with his family members. Alan’s father was the only member who survived the journey.

This Book is one of the best illustrated representation of the Refugee culture. It highlights the essence of destruction by war, loss of loved one’s, deaths and difficult times faced by the the Refugees who struggle daily emotionally, physically and Psychologically. This short book captures your heart and soul. The Narration is powerful and daunting. You truly feel for the difficult life led by the Refugees and Immigrants. This is one of the most impactful reads of the year for me.

The illustrations are the highlight of this book. Beautifully illustrated & magnificently beautiful art work integrated with the story will capture your heart and will be embedded into your soul and mind for years to come.

“Rough & Tumble – Rhenna Morgan.”

💫Title – Rough and Tumble.

💫Author – Rhenna Morgan.

💫Publisher – Carina Press.

💫 Blurb as on Goodreads – Live hard, f*ck harder and make their own rules. Those are the cornerstones the six Men of Haven bleed by: taking what they want, always watching each other’s backs, and loving the women they claim with unyielding tenderness and fierce passion.

A self-made man with his fingers in a variety of successful businesses, Jace Kennedy lives for the challenge. From the start, he sees Vivienne Moore’s hidden wild side and knows she’s his perfect match, if only he can break it free. Earning this woman’s trust is a task unlike any he’s faced so far, but Jace didn’t get where he is by giving up.

Vivienne’s determined to ditch the rough lifestyle she grew up in, even if that means hiding her true self behind a bland socialite veneer. Dragging her party-hound sister out of a club was not how she wanted to ring in the New Year, but Viv knows the drill. Get in, get her sister and get back to the safe, stable life she’s built for herself as fast as humanly possible. But Viv’s plans are derailed when she meets the club’s seriously sexy owner.

Jace is everything Vivienne swore she never wanted, but the more time she spends with him, the more she starts to see that he loves just as fiercely as he fights. He can walk society’s walk and talk society’s talk, but when he wants something, he finds a way to get it. He’s proud of who he is and where he came from, and he’ll be damned if he lets Vivienne go before showing her the safest place of all is in his arms.

💫My Review – {Live hard, f*ck harder and make their own rules. Those are the cornerstones the six Men of Haven bleed by: taking what they want, always watching each other’s backs, and loving the women they claim with unyielding tenderness and fierce passion.}

Let me start by saying that I am absolutely freaking in love with the Entire Series by Morgan. Like it’s absolutely Deliciously Steamy & Romantic. With a good dose of Action & Drama.

Rough and Tumble is the first book in the Haven Brotherhood Series. Jace Kennedy is our Male Protagonist of the story who is one founding member of the brotherhood. Jace as a character will woo you from the first time he is introduced in the book and in no time you will absolutely fall in love with his character. Jace is an Businessman with various investment and owns the hottest club in Dallas – Crossroads. His Past experience & Upbringing has resulted in him being very successful and gained him a few enemies like upcoming politician Paul Renner who shares a bad history with Jace Kennedy.

Vivienne Moore is the female lead of our story and her character is portrayed as a fierce, loyal and caring person yet her bad past has been her difficult place. She is introduced in the story when she receives an SOS call from her sister who needs to be rescued at Crossword (Jace’s club).

The Intertwining of both of these characters happens and spark fly. Two of the most opposite and unlikely characters are attracted to each other and the story progresses through how Viv and Jace overcome their past lives and face their own demons.

The Best part of the story is :-

– Representation of Familial Bond (Not by Blood but By Choice that’s what makes it a Haven Brotherhood Series).

– Character Representation, Character Development along with Steady paced Plot that will absolutely keep you entertained from page one to the end.

– Issues like Drug Abuse, Physical Abuse, Emotional Security, Parental Relationships, Friendship are dealt very Maturely and highlights the topics carefully which was a great thing to read about.

– The Plot, The Subplots ( Romance, Action, Drama, Politics, Mafia) sets a great tone to the story and the Writing style is very impressive. I didn’t have a dull moment throughout the story & thoroughly enjoyed it.

My Rating – 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Absolutely Recommend.

His work, championed by Graham Greene, who became a close friend, was often compared to that of Dickens, Chekhov, Faulkner, and Flannery O’Connor, among others. October 10, 2006, is the centennial of Narayan’s birth.

🌺Blurb as on Amazon -The book Malgudi Days is a collection of short stories written by R.K. Narayan and published by Indian Thought Publications in India in the year 1943. Outside India the book was republished by Penguin Classics in 1982. Malgudi days is a collection of 32 fictional stories set in a small beautiful town called Malgudi in South India.

🌺My Review – 📖R. K. Narayan’s Malgudi is a Fictional Town situated in India. Malgudi Days is one of those books that will capture your attention from page one. This book will make you feel nostalgic and happy because that’s what you grew up watching.

Malgudi is one of those fascinating towns that you wish you could leave in. The author portrays such an beautiful picture about the town, people who reside in the town.
He tries to honestly make an effort to make an insightful effort by showing the struggles, joys, highs and lows of people of Malgudi that are similar to what’s going on in the world.
R. K. Narayan’s Malgudi is one of those Heartwarming & Beautifully narrated stories that will make you reflect on many Personal and Social issues. And you will definitely feel connected to the characters and narrative too many times.

I love the stories, the characters and my love for Malgudi Days is partial because I grew up watching all these characters go through multiple phases of their life and achieve something in their life.

📖Absolutely Recommended.
It’s the only book by an Indian Author that I would absolutely love to Suggest that you pick up.

📖My Rating – (5/5)

“The Vagina Monulogues by Eve Ensler.”

🌺Title – The Vagina Monulogues.

🌺Author – Eve Ensler.

🌺Genre – Non Fiction.

🌺Pages –

🌺Publisher –

🌺Blurb as on Goodreads – I decided to talk to women about their vaginas, to do vagina interviews, which became vagina monologues…At first women were reluctant to talk. They were a little shy. But once they got going, you couldn’t stop them. Women secretly love to talk about their vaginas. They get very excited, mainly because no one’s ever asked them before.

🌺My Review -The Vaginal Monologues is so much more than expected. As Ensler said it is the only body part that is isn’t spoken about by anyone in general.
Vagina is like an Taboo topic, that is rarely ever discussed about even amongst women. It’s like an hush hush topic only spoken to your Gynaecologist. It’s considered to be an Social Stigma or a Taboo topic.
This Short read of 99 pages will be life changing. Keep an open mind and you will be surprised as to how Vagina is not just an Ordinary organ its much more than that, it’s an representation of you and it’s Yours!!!

Eve Ensler wrote this book inspired by an amazing woman who survived Ruthless Atrocities in Yugoslavia her Spirit and Strength was a great source of inspiration to write this book.

Eve Highlights “Vagina Facts by sharing ruthless methods practiced such as in 19th century women who were capable of having orgasm through Mastrubation were regarded as Medical Problems. Such women were corrected or cured by Amputation of Clitorsis or Sewing Vagina Lips.

📖In the United States, the last recorded clitoridectomy for curing masturbation was performed in 1948—on a five-year-old girl. Isn’t this horrible.

This book talks about Vagina not just as an organ but as an experience, each one has something new to share (Good or Bad). Some experience it as an
Pleasurable zone, happy place and some think of it as a Bad Luck Zone, A Place of Mishap.

Globally women feel embarrassed talking about their Vagina issues as they are judged easily. This short term read of 99 pages will Enlighten you in numerous ways. After wrapping this read I took so much of Pride that I have an Wondrous Organ. I no longer need to make it Detached or Numb! Broken, Invisible or feel Ashamed about it. Because hey just like any other body part they are the same too.

If this review isn’t convincing you enough please do watch the HBO series or a simple YouTube search regarding The Vaginal Monologues will do.

My Rating – it’s an Kickass 5👑👑👑👑👑 book.
Definitely #recomended.

“Pride by Ibi Zoboi.”

🌺Title – Pride.

🌺Author – Ibi Zoboi.

🌺Genre – Contemporary YA. (Retelling).

🌺Pages – 200

🌺Publisher – Balzer and Bray

🌺Blurb as on Goodreads –
Pride and Prejudice gets remixed in this smart, funny, gorgeous retelling of the classic, starring all characters of color, from Ibi Zoboi, National Book Award finalist and author of American Street.

Zuri Benitez has pride. Brooklyn pride, family pride, and pride in her Afro-Latino roots. But pride might not be enough to save her rapidly gentrifying neighborhood from becoming unrecognizable.

When the wealthy Darcy family moves in across the street, Zuri wants nothing to do with their two teenage sons, even as her older sister, Janae, starts to fall for the charming Ainsley. She especially can’t stand the judgmental and arrogant Darius. Yet as Zuri and Darius are forced to find common ground, their initial dislike shifts into an unexpected understanding.

But with four wild sisters pulling her in different directions, cute boy Warren vying for her attention, and college applications hovering on the horizon, Zuri fights to find her place in Bushwick’s changing landscape, or lose it all.
In a timely update of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, critically acclaimed author Ibi Zoboi skillfully balances cultural identity, class, and gentrification against the heady magic of first love in her vibrant reimagining of this beloved classic

My Review – 📖Pride by Ibi Zoboi was my pick for#bnbreadathon Prompt 3 @booksnbeyondbox and #slayshortbooks

.

📖”It’s a truth universally acknowledged that when rich people move into the hood, where it’s a little bit broken and a little bit forgotten, the first thing they want to do is clean it up.”

This Quote made me pick this book and I definitely Devoured this Pride and Prejudice Retelling. To be honest I haven’t read Pride and Prejudice in past 15 years or so I won’t make any specific References or Comparisons in both of these books.

.

.📖Ibi Zoboi’s Pride is a story that represents multiple themes Family, Race, Neighborhood, Class (Financial Status), Individuality, Gentrification.
Haitian-Dominican Zuri Benitez 17 years old lives in Bushwick, Brooklyn with her Parents and her Four Sisters. She loves her Neighborhood as it is, she loves that she knows the people, who share her feelings in regards to the Culture, Heritage and her life. Zuri embraces the familiarity of her Neighborhood. This Changes the moment the Darcy family moves into the Neighborhood. The house across the street. The Darcy’s have two boys, Both Teenagers – Ainsley and Darius.
Zuri’s dislike towards the Darcy family is very well known since they started with the renovations of the big house in the Bushwick Locale. Which means Gentrification of the Neighborhood. Which means Change & Zuri hates that her Turf is changing because of the Rich people who undermine everyone in the neighborhood.

Zuri as a Protagonist took my breath away. I absolutely loved her Aspirations, Hopes and her Blunt Honesty. It’s refreshing to see that any 17 year old is so sorted Mentally about their Personal, Educational, Socio and Economic conditions. Zuri is an No Nonsense girl who fiercely protects what she seems to be worthy of it. Darius Darcy is supposedly her Enemy who is keen on keeping her & her sisters out of of his life & his brother Ainsley’s life. He constantly has an difference of opinion with Zuri. They are constantly picking each other apart until they meet Unexpectedly at this Open Mic (Poetry) and everything changes. It’s an Heartwarming experience seeing Zuri and Darius transformation from Enemies to Lovers and how they represent their true self and capture the essence of modern day Pride and Prejudice through their Lives, Differences and Individuality.

.

. 📖Pride by @ibizoboi is one of the most beautifully written book I’ve read in 2019. Like you don’t want to stop the it & hope that there is sequel to it.

📖What you will definitely enjoy – Zuri as a Character.
Family Bonding and Sisterhood Bonding.
Bushwick as a Neighborhood.
The Writing, Characters, Plot Execution is Flawless.

📖What I didn’t like –
I wish the book was too short. I wanted more of it. I was keen to read about Darius and Zuri.

📖My Rating -( 4/5)

“A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer.”

My Review – #Bibliophileworldblogreviews
#unapologeticreader

“A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer.”

I haven’t read any books by the author so naturally this being said that my expectations were high with anticipation is an understatement as I don’t indulge in Retellings much or like Ever

The Story is an Retelling of Beauty and The Beast. Rhen is the crown Prince of Emberfall. He is an Spoilt brat who is Arrogant and Utterly Selfish. In his Arrogance he leds on Lilith on believing that there is more to one night of passion. Later on Lilith reveals that she will is an Enchantress who aims to be the future Queen of Emberfall. When she is Brushed off by Rhen she reveals her true identity and Curses The Crown Prince into a Beast. She curses the Palace until & unless Rhen Finds his one true love. Hundreds of season pass away, yet he hasn’t discovered that one person who will break the curse. Free him from his misery and love him unconditionally.

.

Harper is our female protagonist who is Eighteen from DC. She has her own issues to deal with, her Mother is dying from Cancer, Her Father is a no show man. Her Family owe’s an debt to people & her brother has to pay the debt by working with the Crime Lord’s . Harper has Cerebral Palsy since her birth which results in slight limp to walk with. Harper’s character is Fierce, Honest, Helpful and Badass. Her character portrays her qualities and it unfolds as how she is an key character in the story.

Grey is my favorite character in this book like more amazing than Harper (and that’s saying it a lot 😍). He is the Commander, very Loyal, Trustworthy and Faithful to Rhen.
.

Lilith is one of those Villians who is pretty scary and vindictive. Like there isn’t any character development to her, nor is there any way to know her perspective. Her character is one dimension and some development would add a little more drama to the story.

The Narration is Richly Detailed which interests me the most. At the same time I felt that the book was very slow paced and at times repetitive with the scenarios or feelings related to characters and situations.

📖What I loved about the book is that it’s Potrayal of Cerebral Palasy in an Positive sense. Plus the representation of LGBTQ characters in an Urban Fantasy which is refreshing with the twist of the Retelling.

📖Overall it’s an Good Read.
My Rating – (3. 5/5)

Lilly has not only shared her achievements but she has been very transparent about how she has failed to achieve and accomplish things and how those failures led her to sort out other things and achieve the best. This book is Real, Funny and Authentic by the Superwoman herself. Lilly’s content is Hilarious, Smart, Honest and Insightful.

How to be a Bawse by Lily Singh

“HAPPINESS UNLIMITED – Sister BK. SHIVANI.”

📚Title – Happiness Unlimited.

📚Author – B. K. Shivani in Conversation with Suresh Oberoi.

📚Genre – Spirituality.

📚Pages – 170.

📚Publisher – Amaryllis.

📚Blurb as on Goodreads – The reason why there is so little happiness in the world is dependency. Happiness is not dependent on ‘anything’ or ‘anyone’ or found ‘anywhere’. We keep delaying our happiness until things are just right in our life. We think we will be happy in the future and then wonder why we are not happy now. Happiness is only possible when we are able to accept everyone as they are, at every moment, in every situation. That means an end to judging or resisting others, an end to complaining and blaming, an end to criticizing and controlling and an end to competing with anyone.

📚My Review -“The reason why there is so little happiness in the world is dependency. Happiness is not dependent on ‘anything’ or ‘anyone’ or found ‘anywhere”. This quote made me pre order the book and I am glad that I did it.
I have been a fan of BK. Shivani’s Inspirational and Motivational content for years now and couldn’t resist the opportunity to read this book.
The chapters are written in context of Conversation with Suresh Oberoi.
The Conversation is in Q&A format. Which enables you to get an proper insight into the matters that are being addressed by the author which revolve around the topic of Happiness and how to create a life where we can be the creator of our own happiness and situations that create unhappiness.

The Conversations are very simple yet addresses important questions that we seek answers too. The views expressed by BK. Shivani are insightful, informative about how we are solely responsible to create an surrounding or atmosphere around us that can help us gain a better quality of life. Happiness is one of the most important emotion in our lives which not only affects us Physically but also Emotionally and Psychologically too. Which means that it can be an important aspect of our life as to how we solely can keep ourselves & our environment, relationships happy.

📚What I enjoyed the most about the book was that, “HAPPINESS”, as a topic was highlighted along with other similar aspects of our life. As how happiness can be an asset to make our life blissful.

📚What I’d prefer is to continue watching her video content as it is very inspiring and Motivational over reading book.

“Black Leopard, Red Wolf. (The Dark Star Trilogy #1) – Marlon James.

Title – “Black Leopard, Red Wolf (The Dark Star Trilogy #1).

Author – Marlon James.

Pages – 657.

Publisher – Penguin

Blurb as on Goodreads – Tracker is known far and wide for his skills as a hunter: “He has a nose,” people say. Engaged to track down a mysterious boy who disappeared three years earlier, Tracker breaks his own rule of always working alone when he finds himself part of a group that comes together to search for the boy. The band is a hodgepodge, full of unusual characters with secrets of their own, including a shape-shifting man-animal known as Leopard.

As Tracker follows the boy’s scent—from one ancient city to another; into dense forests and across deep rivers—he and the band are set upon by creatures intent on destroying them. As he struggles to survive, Tracker starts to wonder: Who, really, is this boy? Why has he been missing for so long? Why do so many people want to keep Tracker from finding him? And perhaps the most important questions of all: Who is telling the truth, and who is lying?

Drawing from African history and mythology and his own rich imagination, Marlon James has written a saga of breathtaking adventure that’s also an ambitious, involving read. Defying categorization and full of unforgettable characters, Black Leopard, Red Wolf is both surprising and profound as it explores the fundamentals of truths, the limits of power, the excesses of ambition, and our need to understand them all.

My Review – This Book is hyped everywhere across all social media sites. Specially the #bookstagram community is talking about this book and I solely picked it up because I was curious about the hype this book was receiving.

#unapologeticreader #Bibliophileworldblogreviews

Black Leopard, Red Wolf by Marlon James is very much hyped as an African Game of Thrones.
James Marlon’s – A Brief History of Seven Killings won the Man Booker Prize. Even though I haven’t read it. I was curious about his work and finally picked up his latest book that is, “Black Leopard Red Wolf.”

📙Let’s talk about what I, enjoyed about this book :-

📖The fact that James has created diverse characters from Witches to Necromancer. Shape shifters to Vampires and kids with special abilities was an experience to read about.

📖 The story is based in Africa which I was excited about. The Mythological aspect of the story was intriguing and I truly enjoyed it.

.

📖Couple of chapters do have such beautiful narrations that you will definitely enjoy reading them and will want to reread it again and again.

📙What I didn’t enjoy about the book :-

📖Story is about a mysterious Boy. Who has no name. Who is considered to be dead. There is a Tracker who is known for his ability to track down anyone or anything. He is known to have a Nose that can track anything. He is a well-known Hunter. He is engaged to search the mysteriously disappeared Boy. His mission takes him from one adventure to another. From one city to another. He faces endless obstacles and challenges yet the Tracker is set to know the secret of this Mysterious Boy.
He wants to know who he is and why is he so important to many. Though the tracker isn’t personally vested about it. It’s just an mission to him.
The Plot initially seems to be interesting yet there isn’t much to the story that is worthy of the hype the book is receiving.

📖The Plot and Writing is not something that everyone is going to enjoy. This is the Disclaimer that everyone needs to be aware of. It feels like the author wants you to read yet not indulge in the plot or characters.

📖I planned to #Dnf this books almost every day ( 300 pages in) and it felt that the plot isn’t picking up. We don’t have a lot to read about except unnecessary content that seems irrelevant.

📖The Tangled mess of Over Complicated Characters who just appear eventually to disappear after few pages was irritating to me as most of the book has an endless stream of such characters and situations who aren’t important or play any significant part in the story.

📖The Plot is extremely Confusing and you feel like you are going to lose your mind trying to keep a track of Places, Characters and their Powers. The story feels like a Drag. You don’t enjoy reading it and will definitely regret picking it up.

📖The story deals with multiple issues and themes and people need to be warned about the gory details the book deals in.
Trigger warning for – Rape, Physical, Mental and Emotional Abuse. War, Death, Sex.

📖Honestly this book isn’t anything amazing or fabulous. It’s just an 620 pages of drag that just won’t be every readers dream.

📖My Rating – 2.5/5.

“The Forgotten Commander (the lost planet series book 1) – K. Webster and Nicole Blanchard.”

Title – The Forgotten Commander.

Authors – K. Webster and Nicole Blanchard.

Genre – Sci-fi, Paranormal, Romance.

Pages – 172.

Blurb as on Amazon – Our planet, Mortuus, is lost and dying.
A desolate place where a few lone survivors dwell.
My men have lost hope. Our future is bleak.
Longevity is a luxury we can’t afford.
The most we can hope for is survival.
We’ve all but given up when an opportunity presents itself.
Five females—a chance at a future.
Procuring these women went against everything I’d been taught, but desperate times call for desperate measures.
They’re ours now.
Asleep and made ready for breeding.
We won’t die out—lost and forgotten.
It’s our destiny to grow and once again inhabit our lonely planet.
I am Breccan Aloisius, the forgotten commander.
My people will have the future they deserve.
I’ll make sure of it.
My mind is made up…until she wakes and nothing goes as planned.

My Review – I have been a fan of K. Webster’s books. When one of my fellow reader recommended this book I decided to go in Blind and enjoy it. The Premise of the story is about Aliens, Humans and survival. I am not much into reading Sci-fi books, I’d rather prefer Sci-fi movies over Books. So I initially was truly excited about the plot on how Breccan the forgotten commander and the Morts are struggling for survival and how they get five Aliens (Humans). They discover about how both the species are compatible for procreation and then the story kicks in. Aria is a human who is an actress with a bad past and presently is the only one human who is being tested for Compatibility and turns out she is so Breccan claims her to be his Mate. From there we enjoy the journey of how two species embrace each other and their lives tangle in an effort to survive. I enjoyed Our Protagonists Breccan and Aria. Two different species who Care about each other in their own way and deserve the best from life. A sweet love story with an happily ever after.
What I didn’t enjoy was the Monotonous generic plot. I expected something more interesting because K. Webster as an author is amazing with her Plot and Characters. So a bit disappointed there.
But would definitely grab the second book in the series as I feel the need to explore what happens in the next installment.

My Rating – 3⭐⭐⭐/5.

February Book Hual

So guys this month I was super excited about the book chor sale @book.chor that took place in my city. I enjoy the vibe of being in a room full of Books, Books and Books!!!

The Best part is that I encountered end number of Fellow Book Nerds and the enthusiasm for Books was infectious. You definitely would have been mesmerized by the Spirit and Energy. I definitely was very happy with the Crowd and Specifically the endless number of of books around me.

So just take a look at my February Book Hual.

” The Peshwa:-War of the Deceivers by Ram Sivasankaran.”

🏞️Title – ” The Peshwa:-War of the Deceivers by Ram Sivasankaran.”

🏞️ Publisher – Westland Books.

🏞️Book Length – 496.

🏞️Blurb as on Goodreads –

Seven years have passed since Peshwa Bajirao Bhat annihilated the Nizam’s armies at Fort Mandu. The two forces have been engaged in attacks and skirmishes ever since. Acting on the advice of his right-hand man, the mysterious Anaamik Dabhade, the Peshwa now sets about laying a trap to truly ensnare the Mughals, and break their might.

The Empire, of course, has methods of its own. And Nizam Ul Mulk is itching for an opportunity to exact revenge of the formidable Bajirao. With assassins, saboteurs and criminals infiltrating the Maratha lands, the Mughal Empire scores as many victories in the night as the Peshwa does during the day.

Meanwhile, in the far reaches of the country, set ablaze by the never-ending conflict between these major powers, a Sikh warlord, a Rajput king and a Bundela princess find themselves increasingly tangled up in the endgame that will determine the very course of history. It is a battle of wits and skill, and the greatest deceiver of them all will prevail.

🏞️My Review – I was fascinated by the title of this book. So I knew I wanted to read it.

The plot is an detailed narrative of Peshwa. This book is like living through each Character, historical events through the authors words.

I Strongly felt that the writing was one of the most unique aspect of the book as it was Richly narrated to signify the Historical Events – Political and Personal life of Peshwa.

The book has an gripping Narration in abundance and I absolutely loved the Art Illustrations throughout the book. They are one of the best aspect of the book.

Author has put in a lot of effort with his research on the given topic. Where you understand that the way things are expressed, the way of life.

The rich Narration, Well executed Plot and Character development. The epic love saga amongst Peshwa, Kashibai and Mastani will enthrall you.

I didn’t realize that this is the second book hence felt like I was missing something through the references made. I strongly suggest that you guys read book 1 in the series and grab this one.

Recommended for History lovers. A well Researched Book.

My Rating – 3.5/5.

“Endurance – Amy Daws.”

⚾Title – “Endurance (Harris Brothers #2) – Amy Daws.”

⚾Genre – Romance (Sports).

⚾Blurb as on Goodreads – Tanner Harris has been busy shagging his way through the ladies of east London, but getting caught by the paparazzi buck-naked with his trouser snake in his hands means he’s sowed his last wild oat.

Dr. Belle Ryan once thought Tanner Harris was the perfect kind of bearded bad boy she needed to relieve a bit of stress after her intense job as a surgical fellow, but an icy cold rejection from London’s sluttiest footballer puts the two at each other’s throats.

Fate and a favour conspire to put Tanner and Belle back in each other’s paths and they’re forced to do a lot more than get along to save face and their careers.

Rage turns to passion and tempers run sizzling hot when they realise they aren’t just falling for each other—they’re jumping head first. And neither have the endurance to keep their hands to themselves.

⚾My Review – This is such an hilarious story. I definitely want more from the author.
This series is a set of 5 books that revolve around the famous Football family – The Harris. They are an household name because they rule the football scene.
Tanner is London’s sluttiest footballer who is crazy famous for his not so discreet lifestyle. His last scandal was an massive blow to his professional career. Suspension for a month that gives him a reality check & he desperately needs to get some good press.

Dr. Belle. Ryan hates Tanner with passion. He rejected her once and she isn’t really over it.

Unexpected situations arise and fate is pretty wicked trying to get Belle and Tanner together. They have to be together even if they prefer rather avoiding each other.
Situations change, feelings change, emotions are evolving and they can’t stop themselves from being from enemies to friends and then a lot more.
Absolutely loved the story. Sports Romance is most likely to be hit or miss and definitely The Author has written an series that will keep you hooked until you read the last page and will wrap it up and want to reread it again.
Tanner & Belle are crazy and craziness is the best way they express & experience everything. You will love them and want to read more of it. Absolutely lovely and very well written.

⚾My Rating – ⭐⭐⭐⭐/5.

Definitely Recommended.

#bookreview #Bibliophileworldblogreviews #bookseries #bookworm

⚾Blurb as on Goodreads – He’s her patient. She’s his doctor. They shouldn’t. But God, do they want to.

Camden Harris, the famously hot, hulk of a footballer is laid up in a London hospital. But his busted knee doesn’t stop him from running his well-practiced game on Indie Porter—his redheaded spitfire of a doctor. She’s not his type, not even close. But she could be the perfect distraction from the soul-crushing damage this injury could cost him.

Indie’s tired of her naivety putting a target on her back. As a gifted child, she’s let her education take the front seat her whole life. But a fling with a footballer like Camden might be just what she needs to grab life by the balls.

And he could be the perfect guy for the plan she’s been sitting on for over two years.

But when feelings make a final play, there’s no amount of medicine that can heal the damage to their hearts.

⚾My Review – Camden Harris, the famously footballer is up in a London hospital for busting his knee. He is in Pain and he needs an distraction. Enters Indie Porter the “Wunderkind”. The Medical Prodergy everyone is talking about. She is 24 and the attending doctor to treat Camden.

Cam needs distraction to deal with his issues and Indie seems to be perfect choice. Though she isn’t anything that he is used to. She is Intelligent, Smart, Headstrong and Naive… He wants her to be his sweet distraction.

Indie Porter is many things though she lacks basic sense of love, trust and belonging with someone. Her attraction to Camden is very alluring yet scaring her of the charts.
The story revolves around how two different people from very different upbringing and values can be together.

⚾Plot – The story has an interesting upbeat plot that kept me awake the entire night. Mix an bad boy with an Naive doctor and you get best of both worlds.

⚾Characters – The Harris Family is the Football legacy. Four Brothers who are the best known for taking the Football game to the next level. The Series consists of 5 books. In this Book we talk about Camden Harris who is the Badboy and how he deals with his Issues – His Knee Injury & Surgery.

His Life Choices and the most Important – Dr. Indie Porter.

Indie is the medical Prodergy at the age of 24 attending Surgeon and pursuing her specialization in Orthopedics.
She is Intelligent, Smart and Headstrong. She knows what she wants and she has her secrets. She too is attracted to Cam. I absolutely loved the way Author portrayed the struggles of each character. This book was unputdownable for me.

Enjoy the ride how unexpected situations likely will sweep you off your feet.

⚾My Rating – ⭐⭐⭐⭐/5.

⚾Your Favourite Girl’s Cuppa When you handed me that cup, you handed me your heart. When you inhaled that roast,
you inhaled our first start. When you laughed around a sip, you soared into my mind. When you poured me some more, I gave you all the love I could find. Coffee is more than a cup of caffeine. Coffee is the drink you sip from for dreams. Coffee makes moments more than a scene. Coffee makes love become
everything. When you have true love in your heart, coffee in bed is the best place to start.

“Tarikshir – The Awakening by Khayaal Patel.”

🍂Title – Tarikshir – The Awakening.

🍂Author – Khayaal Patel.

🍂Publisher – Westland Books.

🍂Blurb –

A small princely state in Rajasthan is the last bastion of resistance against the might of the British Empire. While unrest surrounding the sudden death of the king of Devangarh grows, young prince Rudra Pratap Chauhan prepares to ascend the throne.

But the kingdom is in turmoil. The Devangarh army is outnumbered and the British forces are closing in. To make matters worse, Rudra discovers the king’s death may not have been accidental after all. The strange appearance and disappearance of a mysterious hooded stranger and a series of ritualistic murders in which the bodies have been drained of blood, spread panic across the realm.

As Rudra struggles to manage his new responsibilities and investigate his father’s death, dark secrets will be uncovered that will disrupt life as he knows it.

🍂My Review –

The story revolves around two different time periods. One being the period of the Rise of British Rule in India and the second being the era of Ramayana. The story revolves around Tarikshir who is the demon. Who can unleash hell if Awakened.

The story takes place in The kingdom of Devangarh a small kingdom who is striving to fight against the British Rule.

The Sudden yet Mysterious death of king of Devangarh – Raja Ravindra creates an chaos and young prince Rudra Pratap Chauhan prepares to ascend the throne. Though he suspects his uncle for his Father’s mysterious death.

Rudra sets on the path to discover the cause of his father’s death. Rudra faces multiple problems that are truly mysterious in nature, the fight against British army. Rudra has conflicted thoughts on who to trust and how to solve the case of his father’s death. As the story progresses you understand who is Tarikshir? Will he be set free?

How Rudra is going to be solving his father’s mysterious death. The Characters are very well written and each character serves the purpose in the story . The Narration of the book is very well executed and the way the author tackles the themes of Mystery, Magic and Fantasy. These themes blend in with the Plot perfectly. I wish that as a Prince Rudra’s character would be more Fierce & Badass.

The amalgamation of multiple Genre’s and Themes makes the story quite different and intriguing.

TO know about how things unfold you have got to read this book.

🍂This Book is 3.5 out of 5.

“Emotion – Sadhguru.”

🌿Title – Emotion.

🌿Author – Sadhguru.

🌿Publisher – Jaico Publishing House.

🌿Genre – Self Help/ Spiritual.

🌿”Emotion: The Juice of Life”
-Sadhguru.

🌿“One can make any emotion into a creative force in one’s life.” – Sadhguru.

🌿Blurb –
It’s not just poetic license that allows us to refer to emotions as “juicy”. In a literal sense also, emotions are a chemical cocktail that course through our bodies. But while we have no problems with pleasant emotions, unpleasant emotions are the source of much angst in our lives. In Emotion: The Juice of Life, Sadhguru looks at the gamut of human emotions and how to turn them into stepping stones rather than stumbling blocks.
Sadhguru is a yogi and profound mystic of our times. An absolute clarity of perception places him in a unique space in not only matters spiritual but in business, environmental and international affairs and opens a new door on all that he touches.

🌿REVIEW –

🌿”Emotion – The Juice of Life.”- Sadhguru.

🌿The book is an short read of 105 pages. I came across Sadhguru’s work through YouTube and instantly fell in love with the way Mystic talks and addresses everything with No Nonsense attitude.

🌿I absolutely loved the format of the book. It starts with an insightful quote.
The chapters have a typical Question and Answer format.
The Questions dealt are related with Chaotic situations, Emotions, Feelings etc.

🌿Sadhguru is always gives you an no nonsense attitude towards life and answers your questions with brutal facts and honesty.
The book talks about how Emotions are basic yet the most intense part of our life.

🌿Emotions play an key role in our day to day life as they enhance our experiences, relationships and feelings towards little things.

🌿He answers to all the questions very Passionately. His words are insightful, Witty and Sarcastic when needed.

🌿His astute and instinctive approach to Well Being & Spirituality is refreshing and his words to create an impactful awareness amongst masses globally.

🌿My Rating – 🌟🌟🌟🌟/5

“The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo.”

💗Title – “The Poet X. ”

💗Author – Elizabeth Acevedo.”

💗Publisher – Electric Monkey & Penguin Random House.

💗 Blurb as on Goodreads – up

The Poet X
by Elizabeth Acevedo

A young girl in Harlem discovers slam poetry as a way to understand her mother’s religion and her own relationship to the world. Debut novel of renowned slam poet Elizabeth Acevedo.

Xiomara Batista feels unheard and unable to hide in her Harlem neighborhood. Ever since her body grew into curves, she has learned to let her fists and her fierceness do the talking.

But Xiomara has plenty she wants to say, and she pours all her frustration and passion onto the pages of a leather notebook, reciting the words to herself like prayers—especially after she catches feelings for a boy in her bio class named Aman, who her family can never know about. With Mami’s determination to force her daughter to obey the laws of the church, Xiomara understands that her thoughts are best kept to herself.

So when she is invited to join her school’s slam poetry club, she doesn’t know how she could ever attend without her mami finding out, much less speak her words out loud. But still, she can’t stop thinking about performing her poems.

Because in the face of a world that may not want to hear her, Xiomara refuses to be silent.

💗 Review – Let’s start by saying that I am not into poetry at all. I don’t read it nor enjoy it much.

I selected this book randomly.
So when I, started reading it I, thought it might not be a book that I might enjoy reading.
And then something magical happened. I was absolutely impressed with the Writing style.

The Narration is Richly fascinating and as a Girl I could resonate to multiple scenario’s Xiomara faces throughout the story.

The Writing style is very Powerful which demands your undivided attention. This is the one of those books that honestly expresses the issues we have & face but aren’t Vocally expressed in the society.

I Loved Xiomara as a Young Female Protagonist who is fearless to Question everything. Her keen & questioning Attitude towards every notion or belief is very simple yet refreshing.

She Questions every single thing & requires an Practical answer. I could resonate very easily with all the Cultural, Regilious aspects of the book as Xiomara faces them.

How her Gender affects her lifestyle, choices and how she wants to be & how she is told to be. Xiomara has been a given a set of specific Rules and Norms whereas her Twin Brother is given the freedom a Male child is entitled to. She openly discusses how gender equality is the most basic right yet in the comforts of her own home she is deprived of those rights because she is a girl who needs to be tolerant, Pure and innocent.

The Story narrates the story of an Fearless girl who demands answers and is ready to take a stand against everyone.

The Book deals with Topics like Culture, Gender Equality, Feminism, Body Positivity, Religion, LGBT.

The Poet X is an empowering story of taking a stand against our families and society to be someone who you want to be. Something you believe in.

The story is about Acceptance to things that you may or may not like. It strongly advocates Feminism and spreads the message that no matter who you are or where you are. You need to be the one to make your choices and be happy & free from all the shackles of the world.

“The Heartfullness Way – Kamlesh D. Patel.”

📚Title – The Heartfullness Way.

📚Authors – Kamlesh. D. Patel & Joshua Pollock.

📚Genre – Self Help/ Spiritual.

📚Publisher – Westland Books.

📚Pages – 195.

📚Blurb as on Goodreads – Heartfulness is an ideal, a spiritual way of living by and from the heart that is inclusive of all ideologies, beliefs, and religions. In this heart-centered book, a student in conversation with his teacher, Kamlesh D. Patel—affectionately known as Daaji, the fourth and current spiritual guide of the decades-old Heartfulness tradition—present a unique method of meditation with the power to facilitate an immediate, tangible spiritual experience, irrespective of your faith.
Our modern, fast-paced world can be an overwhelming place. Every day, we’re bombarded with messages telling us that in order to be happy, fulfilled, and worthy, we must be better, do more, and accumulate as much material wealth as possible. Most of us move through our busy lives with our minds full of these ideas, multitasking as we strive to navigate the responsibilities and expectations we must meet just to make it through the day. But what if there were another way? What if, rather than letting the busyness of life overtake our minds, we learned to be heartful instead?
Based on Daaji’s own combination of approaches and practices for the modern spiritual seeker—which draws from the teachings of the Sahaj Marg, meaning “The Natural Path,” and incorporates elements of Sufism—Heartfulness is a contemporized version of the ancient Indian practice of Raja Yoga, a tradition that enables the practitioner to realize the divine self within. While many books describe refined states of consciousness and connection to a higher self, often called “enlightenment” or “nirvana,” The Heartfulness Way goes further, providing a pragmatic course to experience them, which, per the book’s guiding principle, is “better than knowledge.”
Heartfulness meditation consists of four elements—relaxation, meditation, rejuvenation, and connection—and illuminates the ancient, defining feature of yogic transmission (or pranahuti), the utilization of divine energy for spiritual growth and transformation. Using the method, detailed practices, tips, and practical philosophy offered in this book, you’ll reach new levels of attainment and learn to live a life more deeply connected to the values of the Heartfulness way—with acceptance, humility, compassion, empathy, and love

📚My Review –

As an reader I have read tons of spiritual and self help books. Though I never read anything on Heartfullness ever. Hence I wanted to read it and gain a sense of insight into the unique topic – Heartfullness Way of life.

The Book consist of Three parts which are well divided into chapters that give you a clarity of the concept of – Heartfullness. I specifically enjoyed reading the Second part of the book that is dedicated to Meditation.

The book is well written specially the most important aspect of the book is the insightful conversations amongst Daaji and Joshua.

The indepth discussion on the topic of Meditation is welcoming. It was great knowing how meditation could transform your life. The Heartfullness meditation, cleansing and prayers are somewhat an New concept for me. As the Author has written about all the concepts that one needs to know about The Heartfullness meditation with multiple examples, clarifications and mostly Daaji discussions with every single question is practical and sensibly answered.

I would recommend this book to people who would love to explore the new world of The Heartfullness Meditation.

📚My Rating – 3.5 out of 5.

SELECTIVE MUTISM.

MURDER.

” God Won’t Help – Rajiv Grover.”

💞📖💞 “God Won’t Help – Rajiv Grover. ”

💞📖💞Pages – 105.

💞📖💞Publisher’s – Notion Press.

💞📖💞Blurb –

A chance meeting with a former US Army Special Forces officer AKA Candyman in war-torn Kabul sets Shiv, a disillusioned civil engineer, from the comforts of Mumbai on a journey to find his inner peace.

The craggy peaks and troughs of the Karakoram Range echo the ups and downs of Shiv’s life as he seeks answers to questions of life, destiny and happiness. In a way, Shiv’s travails are no different from that of millions of others seeking answers to the apparent unfairness in life’s distribution of bounties and miseries.
Keeping him company in this quest is Nasir, a dour-faced Pashtun, who struggles with his own torments as he despairs at the caprices of fate.
But what is a former US army officer doing amidst the ruins of Kabul living in a tent house, and why does the American go by the moniker “Candyman”? The answer to this innocuous question hides in itself the purpose of life we seek and how and why happiness eludes most, despite religion, religious structures, gods and godmen and most important of all… why God won’t help! Or will He?


💞📖💞 My Review –

Firstly! Let me tell you that I was intrigued by the Title of the book.

The Book Consists of only Four Chapters each chapter explains every concept in detail.

The Author is being practical and reasonable throughout the concepts he is conveying to his readers.

“The Law of Karma”, kept me glued the pages. The way its explained helped me gain some insight into the issues I personally dealt with. Understanding how law of karma works and affects us all in the long run.

💞📖💞 My Favorite Quote – “The Law of karma is absolute just & fair. It ensures that each and every action of ours has a result of the same intensity and proportion.”

💞📖💞 The Book deals with concepts of Ego, Law of Karma. The Elevation of soul – Nirvana, Salvation, Moksha!

Jim also known as Candy man who narrates his experiences to Nasir wherein he shares his experiences, thoughts and opinions on various aspects of life. The author has dabbled the concepts that we deal with every day. It made me think about many things and realize that Karma plays an key role in our life.

I would say that the Practical approach by Rajiv Grover has dedicated to the book makes it easy to read and interpret the meaning easily. As a reader you connect with the content of the book easily and can pin point our journey, mistakes and how you can improve it.

💞📖💞 My Rating – 4 out of 5.

“Everless – Sara Holland.”

💞📖💞 “Everless – Sara Holland.”

💞📖💞 Publisher – Harper Teen

💞📖💞Pages – 362.

💞📖💞Genre – Fiction, Fantasy.

💞📖💞Blurb as on Goodreads :-
In the kingdom of Sempera, time is currency—extracted from blood, bound to iron, and consumed to add time to one’s own lifespan. The rich aristocracy, like the Gerlings, tax the poor to the hilt, extending their own lives by centuries.
No one resents the Gerlings more than Jules Ember. A decade ago, she and her father were servants at Everless, the Gerlings’ palatial estate, until a fateful accident forced them to flee in the dead of night. When Jules discovers that her father is dying, she knows that she must return to Everless to earn more time for him before she loses him forever.
But going back to Everless brings more danger—and temptation—than Jules could have ever imagined. Soon she’s caught in a tangle of violent secrets and finds her heart torn between two people she thought she’d never see again. Her decisions have the power to change her fate—and the fate of time itself.

💞📖💞My Review – Let’s just say that I was thrilled to read Everless and once I started reading it I, wasn’t sure if I was going to read past hundred pages. I eventually stopped reading after completing the tenth chapter as I did not like it. I took a break read other books and started Rereading the book as it was a part of the #bnbreadathon

💞📖💞 The Premise of the book was enticing. I haven’t read anything that deals with theme related to blood, time. In the kingdom of Sempera, time is currency—extracted from blood, bound to iron, and consumed to add time to one’s own lifespan.

The Intricate plot Revolves around the Gerlings who earn their life span by extracting blood from their pupil as a form of Tax, Punishment. Which enables the Gerlings to live for centuries.

💞📖💞 The Female Protagonist – Jules is an unlikely character. She is constantly Angry, Confused. Yet she is Sensitive and Intelligent. The other characters just like Jules aren’t well developed. The only character apart from Jules who grabbed my Attention were Liam Gerling and Caro. As Liam & Caro both play an intense role throughout the story. The other characters aren’t important and are characterized in a dull manner. This is why you don’t connect with anyone.

💞📖💞 The Premise is Intriguing and I think I would have enjoyed it if the Storyline & character development was researched thoroughly. The writing style didn’t work for me. It lacked the details to precision. The Plot Twist was one factor that I enjoyed throughout the book. Chapter number 29 and 30 were the best chapters in the book . They kept me glued to the pages and basically I wanted to read the sequel immediately.

💞📖💞 The book strongly portrays the theme of female friendship, love, Magic and Deception. The best part of the book is the Villain. Oh my I guessed it beforehand though the way Author exposed the Villain to Jules was Epic. I absolutely loved the sequence. Because of the last chapter I will be reading Evermore. I am curious about what will be happening after revealed secrets.

The Book isn’t something I will recommend to you because personally I didn’t enjoy it much.

💞📖💞My Rating – 3 out of 5.

“The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.”

⚡Title – “The Night Circus.”

⚡Author – Erin Morgenstern.

⚡Genre – Fantasy. Fiction.

⚡Publisher – Vintage Books.

⚡Pages – 502.

⚡ Blurb as on Goodreads – The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.
But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway—a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them, this is a game in which only one can be left standing, and the circus is but the stage for a remarkable battle of imagination and will. Despite themselves, however, Celia and Marco tumble headfirst into love—a deep, magical love that makes the lights flicker and the room grow warm whenever they so much as brush hands.
True love or not, the game must play out, and the fates of everyone involved, from the cast of extraordinary circus performers to the patrons, hang in the balance, suspended as precariously as the daring acrobats overhead.
Written in rich, seductive prose, this spell-casting novel is a feast for the senses and the heart

⚡I started Reading this book as a Part of my #bnbreadathon hosted by @booksnbeyondbox.

Prompt 1 – A Book Full of Magic.

⚡My Review – Let me tell you that I just started Reading this book. I didn’t read the Blurb or any Reviews. Just Picked it up and started reading it. And it’s a good book that each one of us will definitely enjoy reading. If not now then sometime in the Future, if you have read it you know what I mean right 😉.
The Story Revolves around The Night Circus wherein Circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not.
The Plot revolves around the Two Protagonists, Celia And Marco who are both trained Magician to be a part of an Unknown and Unusual competition. Both are trained from an very young age to be skilled Magician to Compete in an competition where you don’t know what to do or expect. You don’t know who is your Competitor or what to do. You face the competition one day at a time.

The Circus is the platform provided to Celia and Marco to Perform & Showcase their Magic and Skills to Create unimaginable things that is perceived as a Illusion by many spectators. In truth each creation is a part of the competition. Each Creation Represents something that is relevant to the Circus and the people relating to it.

The Writing style is Lyrical. The Narration is Richly Detailed and Descriptive. It’s the writing that captures your attention. I think it is the best part of this book.

The Narration changes from First Person, Second to Third Person which is quite Insightful as understanding the Perspective of characters is very important. The Detailed Narrative gives you a very clear understanding of the situations.

The Story is absolutely Enchanting and Very Magical. The Roaring Chemistry between Marco and Celia is a pleasant surprise. The Illusions, Creations, Designs, Characters, Competition adds a lot to the Richly Imaginative world written by the Author.

I have enjoyed this book like none other. The experience is very delightful and extraordinary.

The intricate details for description was rich and inviting. The Characterization of each and every character throughout the story was gripping. The atmosphere created by the Author is Enthralling and Enchanting. I couldn’t stop reading, thinking & talking about the book.

You can expect the unexpected in the story.

Magnificently Beautiful.

Experience the Magic.

⚡What I didn’t enjoy – It is the Time line of the story which was a bit difficult to keep a track of.

Secondly the slow pace of the story which took extra chapters with repetitive issues and writing.

Thirdly I wish there was a sequel to The Night Circus.

☔⚡☔ My Rating – 4 out of 5.

“Flying Without Wings – Rishabh Puri. ‘

📚Book Review – “Flying Without Wings – Rishabh Puri.”

.

📚Blurb – For Milli Bajwa, life is at a stand-still. Grounded in the Chandigarh airport where she works day after day, she watches flights leaving for destinations she knows she ll never visit. Loveless and luckless, she would rather bury her nose in a book than face her grim reality.
And then, on a whim, she swipes right on a new dating app, and finds the man of her dreams someone who can sweep her off her feet and teach her how to fly.
But the mysterious and charming Karan Singhania has secrets of his own, and a heart damaged in more ways than one.
This is the story of two people about to find out how far they re willing to go for the promise of true love. Will Karan take a chance and dive blind-folded and headfirst towards his dreams? Will Milli be willing to stand by Karan s side in sickness and in health, just for a glimpse of his smile?
This is a story of hope and joy in times of heartache and trial. Of finding the perfect person in imperfect situations. And of love s power to carry us through our darkest times.

.

.

📚My Review – The Story Revolves around Karan and Milli. Karan and Milli belong to different backgrounds.
Karan is an Business man whereas Milli works at the Airport. They meet through an Dating app which changes their world all together. The story revolves around how both of these characters are trying to achieve love and overcome their insecurities with emotional baggage, health problems, money, happiness and most important Love.

It’s an easy to read Romance story. The concept of including Dating App as a means to explore & Communicate through an relationship was a very good idea. The story is something that anyone will enjoy though there wasn’t anything new about it. I wish it could be fast paced and though the writing style is impressive and simple enough for everyone to understand. I recommend this book to people who love Bollywood Romances.
