Book Review: All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

When I heard of All the Bright Places and how it was being marketed as something that fans of John Green – especially those of The Fault in Our Stars – will love, I thought I had to read this one. Thinking thus, I bought it almost 2 years ago. And since the movie came out recently, I felt like there was no better time for me to read it than now.

Book Rant: Trail of Broken Wings by Sejal Badani

This book would probably have killed me by giving me high blood pressure. I was so pissed off with each page I turned that it took me all my strength and energy to not throw the book across the room. And I was reading it on the Kindle app on my laptop, so I know that that was a good decision.

Book Review: House of Trelawney by Hannah Rothschild

Just the cover of Hannah Rothschild’s The Improbability of Love brought me to my knees, even though I haven’t read it in the year that I have owned it. Plus, I had heard great things about the book. So of course, when the author’s new book came out, I became excited. And when Bloomsbury India granted me the review request, I literally squealed! Thing is, disappointment doesn’t warn you before it strikes. That’s probably why some are so hard to digest. And this one, House of Trelawney, is one such.

Book Review: On the Come Up by Angie Thomas

I LOVE ANGIE THOMAS! There’s no two ways about it. She got me in The Hate U Give. She got me in On the Come Up. Seriously. HOW DOES SHE DO THAT?!

Book Review: The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot

I had heard about this non-fiction book and that it was simply amazing but I had never heard of Henrietta Lacks before. When I hadn’t read this, I went, “What is this book?” And when I finished it, I went, “Why didn’t I know about Henrietta Lacks when the whole world knows about her now?”

Book Review: Unstoppable by Maria Sharapova

Before I say anything else, let me get this out of the way: I’ve got a whole new level of admiration for Maria Sharapova now that I’ve read her autobiography! "The ITF didn’t draw any attention to the fact that they were suddenly banning a supplement that was being legally used by millions of people. That was their mistake."

Book Review: The Worst Daughter Ever by Aarti V Raman

I have never read a book by Aarti V Raman before. She’s been on my radar, but I’ve never gotten the chance to read her work before. But this time, I did pick up one of her books and now, I know that any time I want to read a well-written romance by an Indian author, I’m going to go and read one of her books. And that’s all thanks to The Worst Daughter Ever!

Book Review: The Dutch House by Ann Patchett

"There are a few times in life when you leap up and the past that you'd been standing on falls away behind you, and the future you mean to land on is not yet in place, and for a moment you're suspended, knowing nothing and no one, not even yourself."
