Book Review: A Silent Takeover by Sarvananda Chandrashekaraiah

A Silent Takeover was intense and suspenseful, and was a thriller to its very core. This book flows so smoothly, at a nice brisk pace.

Book Review: One Day, Life Will Change by Saranya Umakanthan

One Day, Life Will Change is a sweet and inspiring story about two characters that are complete opposites and very unique in their own way.

Book Review: The Saga of Shom and Raima by Tapan Ghosh

While The Saga of Shom and Raima by Tapan Ghosh a typical love story involving a man discovering the woman of his dreams, the real weight of the entire plot lay in the last few pages. It lays a big emphasis on human choices when things go wrong. Most times, we humans tend to get carried away especially when the going is good. When it gets tough is what determines who we really are on the inside. It was sweet and cute at the beginning, romantic in the middle, agonizing at the near-end, and hopeful at the ending.

Book Review: Milky Tea & Vodka by Rhea Sharma

There are books that make you smile in love or simply be thankful for opening your eyes every morning even if your life is far from being perfect. I would rather read a dark and gripping story because they truly make you feel alive. When you’re happy you don’t think about every aspect of your life, just about that one thing that makes it all good. Milky Tea & Vodka by Rhea Sharma is a story of the unfairness of life; how things are cut short, how things are not what they seem, how things are stolen, changed, a path diverted in a blink.
