My Giant TBR 

Hey guys! So well, a huge tbr is something we all suffer from. We as book lovers always, always have an unlimited number of books to read. And the quote “So many books, such less time” is created for us, guys. Tell me if you agree?!

So right now, my holidays are going on and its for about 20 days, so I decided to read 10 books in these 20 days, yes I don’t think it is possible but I’m doing everything I can to complete this. I’ve already read 2 books but Oh, well lets see if I can complete the rest 8?! It’s going to be a real challenge. 

So here’s a few books of my never ending tbr:

1. Windfall (also, currently reading though its off to a slow start)

2. The secret history of us

3. How To Disappear 

4. You don’t know me but I know you

5. The Dazzling heights

6. Ramona Blue

7. Three Dark Crowns 

8. Nothing 

9. Lord of Shadows

10. Not if I see you first

11. Geek Girl

12. Nevernight 

Omg can’t believe there are so  many and I’m not even half done. Wow. Well, tell me if you relate to this.

Review: It only Happens in the Movies 

Okay guys, I cannot even begin to describe how good this book was. It was unique, and honestly, completely changed my thoughts about “happily-ever after romance movies”. 

I don’t know why I didn’t read this earlier. A beautiful book about a girl who despises love and romance films that show us that love lasts forever. “Audrey” the protagonist used to believe in the happily ever after fairy tale endings that movies always portrayed. She herself was named “Audrey” because her so in-love parents named her afrer Audrey Hepburn the famous romance movie actress. I loved Audrey not because she was cynical and despised love. But because she was right. She saw through the layers and as pessimistic as she may have been, well she was right.

But then comes “Harry”, the basic bad-boy who flirts with every girl he sees. Audrey has learnt better than  to give her heart to some bad-boy and is determined to stay away from Harry and all the drama. But slowly Harry’s layers come off and she sees him for who he truly is and she can’t help but fall for him. A tale of two people. One who was stormed off of love and a clichéd bad-boy. 

The book was absolutely amazing. It was just so good. Holly Bourne is one of my new favourite authors. She is so talented. I would’ve never even expected such a book to be ever written. But abutting I say will not do real justice to exactly how beautiful, different and captivating this book was. It was a whole new opinion that we as readers don’t normally come across. A lovely story, one that brought me to tears. It made me laugh and cry and made me fall in love with the characters. And you know What? IT REALLY ONLY DOES HAPPEN IN THE MOVIES. 

If you hate romance movies, this one’s for you and even if you love romance movies, it still is  for you. Read this masterpiece guys, I promise you that you will love it.

Review: This is Where the world Ends 

NAME: This is Where the world Ends 

GENRE: YA, fiction, coming of age

AUTHOR: Amy Zhang 

RATINGS: 5/5

“Miracles do not belong to fairy tales. Miracles belong to the desperate, because only the desperate believe in bullshit.”

This book was beautiful in every single aspect, it touched my soul and I loved  it. It was devastatingly wonderful and just….so good.

The writing was amazing, the author has done such an amazing job writing this book. I knew from the very start that this book was going to break me, but I liked it. It was unique and intriguing and just so well written, I just couldn’t put it down. EVERY word, every sentence seemed flawless and the story was so different.

Halfwau through the book I had come to love the protagonist, she was so cool and brave. A story that all must read, a book that tells us so much about society, peer pressure and self harm. A perfect blend of sadness and happiness, thid book left me for wanting more and more. 

That ending, ahh it hurt me really bad! Even though in the end I weeped like a baby, I loved the book. Because stuff happens no matter what, you can’t change it you can just try to forget and move on, because “forgetting  was so much easier tahn remembering”

The main characters had my heart, they were perfect they deserved to cherish each other, they deserved better! 

You guys need to read this book, it’s too good, a huge thanks to harper collins india for a review copy of this book.

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: 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.
