Ready Player One | Movie Review

And now, I can’t wait to go home and start reading it.

The Host by Stephenie Meyer | Book Review

The first thing that goes through any bookworm’s mind when they think “Stephenie Meyer” is “Oh, she’s that vampire wali author, no?” Yes, she is. And yes, the Twilight movies were adapted from Meyer’s books. But I will say this over and over again, like any booklover: The books were better. And the books weren’t as bad as the movies. [The movies had some bad acting. I say bad acting because there were some actors in there with tremendous acting capabilities. All of it gone to dust.]

Donoor’s Curse by Sharath Komarraju | Book Review

Donoor’s Curse is a story woven around the village of Donoor; a village steeped in superstition. Or so it may seem.

What follows is a thrilling story of adventure and revelations and shocks, woven in with Dev’s spasms of alcoholic craving.
