Review: As I descended 

NAME: As I descended 

AUTHOR: Robin Talley

GENRE: Fantasy, horror, fiction, YA

RATING: 4/5

“Something wicked this way comes”

Never expected to be so amazed and surprised by this book. It was absolutely magnificent and so unexpectedly unique.

When I just started reading this I thought it was a Classic contemporary. But after a few pages it became a mix of horror and fantasy and fiction. On the whole it was a really exciting and nail biting read. Beautifully put into words this is a retelling of macbeth in one of the most extraordinary and beautiful ways. I sure did enjoy this book and was honestly surprised because I normally never enjoy horror but this was truly thrilling and there were so many moments where I was just so startled. There were cliff hangers and such unexpected turns in the book, it blew my mind.

Halfway through the book, I was totally engrossed and a part of the book itself. I couldn’t put the book down! It was truly one of those few different books that you don’t see nowadays because of all the old cliches and classics! 

So if your ever looking for something new and thrilling do read this book, it’s a pretty easy and quick read once you read a few pages! 

Review: A dog’s purpose 

NAME: A dog’s purpose 

AUTHOR: W. Bruce Cameron

GENRE: YA, fiction, contemporary 

RATING: 4/5 

THE MOST ADORABLE BOOK I’VE EVER READ. Loved it. And now i have new respect and understanding and love for dogs. Cause well, “every dog happens for a reason”.

Very sweet and funny book. Enjoyed this a lot even though before reading it I was in a slump, so it definitely is a good book to get over a book or to come out of your slump. Beautiful, beautiful book. Do read it. The book was almost magical. You get to see everything through a dog’s point of view. 

Dogs are honestly the best. And definitely are man’s best friends. This book was a good mix of love, humour and also sadness. It did break my heart but I loved it! Read this guyssss, its truly amazing. A huge thanks to the publishers for sending me a review copy.

Review: PERFECT 

NAME: Perfect 

AUTHOR: Cecelia Ahern

GENRE: Dystopian, fiction, YA

RATINGS: 5/5 

“Life is not meant to be perfect”

Perfect, this was one of the most anticipated releases of 2017 for me and it did not Disappoint! I loved it. 

Every single sentence, every quote was so meaningful, ahh it was just so…PERFECT! Cecelia Ahern is one of my favourite authors and that is after I read ‘Flawed’. I absolutely loved flawed and i was so excited when I got Perfect. It was just so amazing.

The story was intriguing to the very core. An epitome of brilliance. It was without a doubt one of the best books I have EVER READ. The protagonist Celestine North, was  the very symbol of bravery and an idol to everyone. She is by far one of my favourite female protagonists! I loved her character so much. She risked EVERYTHING for the falwed people. She showed extreme strength after all she went through. 

Every character was well developed. Each incident in the book was well written and it not just was a very enthralling and good book, but it was something much more, it tells us so much. So many messages have been given to the world through this book. 

People do make mistakes. But they learn from them. Nobody is perfect. We are all flawed. 

This message was the very core of this duology! And I cannot agree more.

A very well thought of book, that I cherished with my whole heart. One, that I will never forget and one that will last forever. 

The ending gave me all the feels, I was contented and happy and it was just very satisfying. One of the best endings ever! 

Please do read this book, I promise you will love it. I did and I would definitely reread this book sometime. It was beautiful. I owe a huge, huge thanks to Harper Collins India for a review copy of this book!  

Review: The Sins of The Father  

NAME: The sins of the father

AUTHOR: Jeffery Archer

GENRE: Thriller, fiction 

RATINGS: 4/5

This is the second book in the Clifton Chronicles! I loved the first book and it ended in this huge clifd hanger so I was way more than just excited to read the second part.

And yes, it was good! I really liked the development of the characters and the plot. Ot had advanced in a huge way from the first book. The second world war was jist about to begin an there harry was, with a new identity, so many possibilities and so many questions, all that were answered in this amazing sequel! Jeffery Archer is one of the greatest authors, and The Clifton Chronicles has made me love his writing! The book was flawless and yes, very intriguing. 

All those cliff hangers, “ah” moments and those sharp intakes of breath! Wow, I loved this book. A perfrct portrayal of the lives of the people during the war. The loss, grief and sadness they felt for their loved ones knew no bounds. Those heroes, who selflessly died for their country!

This book showed huge amounts of emotion and so, so much of loss and love, it was beautiful in its very own way.

The ending was incomplete and that is one thing that jeffery archer always succeeds in doing, keeping his readers at the very edge of their seat and always leave them wanting and praying for the next book to just miraculously appear!

I think and believe that this book was exquisite and has surpassed ny expectations. A book that should be read by everybody! I urge you all to go read this beautiful book.

A huge, huge thanks to pan macmillan India for a review copy of this wonderful book.

Review: A thousand Pieces of you

NAME: A thousand pieces of you 

AUTHOR: Claudia Gray

GENRE: Sci-fi, contemporary, thriller 

RATINGS: 5/5

I had always wanted to read this book!  And then when thr amazing Harper Collins India publishers sent it to me for review, I was thrilled.

I enjoyed it even more than i expected to. A wonderful cross between sci-fi and contemporary and also a thriller, this book was exquisite. The plot was unique and new, nothing like the same old drama. It was a highly refreshing and much needed change. I throughly enjoyed this book and I can’t wait to read the other two books in this triology.

An impressively woven tale about jumping dimensions, solving a murder and finding love….this book will please you extensively with a perennial effect on you. 

The twists and turns in this book were nailbiting and the least bit expected, if even! If you enjoy sci-fi and think that jumping dimensions is pretty cool and intriguing you should definitely try this book. And those you don’t like sci-fi dont let it discourage you….there’s contemporary and a mystery too! 

Honestly, this book can be enjoyable by anyone! So go buy this amazing trilogy right away….i bet you won’t regret it!

The ending was mind blowing and sooooo unexpected. I was so happy for the protagonist ah it was too good.

Review: The Thousandth Floor

NAME: The thousandth Floor

AUTHOR: Katharine McGee

GENRE: YA< fiction, fantasy, sci-fi

RATINGS: 5/5

“The higher you are, the farther you fall”

This book was magnificent, and completely PERFECT! A book so unique that you lose yourself completely in it. I loved this book to the very last word. Every single aspect of this book was so intriguing and amazing, ah…. This book is now THE BEST book I’ve read in 2017 so far. And I just wonder why I didn’t pick it up earlier.

The start, unlike most books wasn’t monotonous but very much lively and thrilling from the first chapter. I loved how the author had written it from all the character’s point of view. It kept the book moving and upbeat. And it may seem odd to you guys, but sometimes I see the length of a particular chapter and if it’s too long I feel tired and kind of difficult while reading it. And well, with this book, I just couldn’t put it down! It was the MOST fun I’ve had reading any book.

I personally loved each character. The fact that the author pointed out that everyone had a good and bad side was really appreciable! I found myself enjoying this book so much, that I lost track of time and to be honest, I actually finished this book in just 2 sittings! I finished it practically in less than 3 days. The plot was extremely well prepared and thought of. It was an excellent cross between YA and sci-fi. Not to mention the intricacy with which the future world was described was fabulous. I could picture everything and it felt awesome.

My reaction….when I reached the end was….well hard to picture but lets just say there were shrieks and an open mouth ; ) anyways I finished the book about half an hour go and I really can’t wait for the second book….I honestly need it right now. The end was NOT AT ALL predictable to say the least, it was a shock and a surprise and well….read the book to find out!

A huge thanks to Harper Collins India for a review copy!

Guys, If you aren’t already ordering this book now, you really, really should! I hope this review makes you want to buy this book right this instant and if it doesn’t then I urge you to go read this futuristic and one of a kind book that I’m sure you’ll absolutely love!
