Book Review: Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

I came across Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda when I joined BookTube. Or rather, when I started following all the amazing people on there. Every single BookTuber had only good things to say about this book. And when its sequel also made an appearance, I knew I had to get on with it. Becky Albertalli awaited me and I had to start reading her works as soon as possible! But apparently, I couldn’t do it soon enough because a movie based on this book came out and I hadn’t read it yet. The movie’s called Love, Simon and I can’t wait to watch it now that I have read the book!

Book Review: Chronicles of Kali: The Secret Book of Asurs by Prithvi Raj

A book that would explain the philosophical understanding of the human mind as well as add fantasy and fantastically mythological elements to the plot – that’s how I would summarize Chronicles of Kali: The Secret Book of Asurs. With such a seemingly complicated world to carry on its shoulders, this book could have gone any which way. The road not taken, perhaps.

Book Review: A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson

I usually don’t get excited about nonfiction books. But somehow, A Walk in the Woods was somehow inexplicably pulling me towards it. Maybe because it is travel-related that I was so excited to start reading this book. It is saying something when just 2 pages in, I fell in awe with the man called Bill Bryson.

Book Review – Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo

I had never been a great fan of DC comics or the movies. I found them to be on the darker side while I preferred the cheekiness and pun-filled humor of Marvel. But then, Wonder Woman happened and I fell in love with the character as well as the woman who played her. Like, have you seen her smile? It lights up the world! And to see that a director as wonderful as Patty Jenkins directed her in a movie that turned the DC Universe around! Jenkins did what no one else had been able to do thus far and brought a DC movie to a level of classic that was probably unheard of in those circles.

Book Review: The Diary on the Fifth Floor by Raisha Lalwani

I usually write a short introduction to my book reviews, talking about how I came across this book and any personal trivia related to it. But I’m struggling to come up with a proper written introduction to this book because of how intense it is and because of how much I was and am still affected by it.

Book Review: Until Love Sets Us Apart by Aditya Nighhot

The reason why I chose this book for review was the vibrant cover. It was so well-designed that I hoped that the story would be as good as the cover. But I think I went in with too many expectations when compared to what I actually got out of it.

Book Review: A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman

First off, I was so excited to start reading this book. I’d been waiting for it for so long that I cannot even explain how happy it made me feel to hold it and start reading. It feels surreal actually. And secondly, A Man Called Ove was part of my list of 10 Books That I Hope to Read in 2018. I can’t believe I actually finished reading it. But I do know this: Picking A Man Called Ove and reading it is one of the best decisions I made in my life.

Book Review: Sniper’s Eye by Mainak Dhar

I had heard good things of Mainak Dhar’s writing and that his previous book 3:02 was a cracking thriller. So I was really excited when an opportunity popped up to review his latest book, 'Sniper’s Eye'. As I started to read it, my only hope was that my excitement about the book and the author was justified. Oh, and with 'Sniper’s Eye', I completed my Goodreads challenge of reading 100 books this year. Hurray for that!

Book Review: The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger

I’d finally gotten around to including The Devil Wears Prada in my immediate TBR because I knew that if I didn’t do it now, I wouldn’t read it for a long time. It was as part of the BookTube-A-Thon 2018 that I read this book and watched the movie. One of the reading challenges said: Read and watch a book-to-movie adaptation. So I saw the chance and I took it!

Book Review: Seductive Affair by Rishabh Puri

I’d received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. There were a number of reasons I accepted this, the biggest being that it had been a long time since I read a good romance. Reading the blurb told me that I was going to read one such. Of course, the title promises some steamy scenes, but there is more to it than just that, as I will get to in a minute.
