The Coincidence of Coconut Cake

I think I have said this before, I am a sucker for books that has an interesting title or a beautiful cover art. And while this is rarely a good indicator of how read-worthy a book actually is, in the objective sense, I always fall for such books, hook, sinker and line! And this is…

Book Review: Persuading Annie

This beautiful adaptation of Jane Austen’s “Persuasion” comes with one simple message : Take responsibility for your life or else, you will end up living your life on someone else’s terms, trying to fulfill their expectations of you. When Annie heeded the advice of her godmother, Susanna, to not elope with her then boyfriend, Jake,…

Book Review: A Man Called Ove

It isn’t everyday you come across books that leave a lasting impression on your life so much so that its stories stays in your heart forever! I stumbled upon one such book recently and my, what an endearing read it was! This was my first read of 2017 and I must say, what a truly…

Book Review: Fifty Shades Darker

I never thought I would be saying this, especially given my earlier review on Fifty Shades of Grey… but I quite liked Fifty Shades Darker. Yes! I’m surprised myself! My experience with FSG was so bad (what with a mentally deranged Christian and a constantly whining Ana!) that I never thought I would touch the…

Book Review: Daddy’s Gone A Hunting

I am pleased to inform you that my most beloved author Mary Higgins Clark, the reigning “Queen of Suspense”, the “No 1 Murder Mystery Novelist” & the “Most Amazing Author Ever” is back with a bang!!! With her latest, “Daddy’s gone – a – hunting”! Having read the book, I would say she is all set…

Book Review: Can You Keep A Secret

Another book ticked off the reading list – “Can you keep a secret by Sophie Kinsella”! have wanted to read this book for a long time now but every time I came across this one, I kept putting it off to another day. Somehow the blurb didn’t appeal to me much! Huge surprise there, considering…

Book Review: Luckiest Girl Alive

I just read a really really amazing book, ‘Luckiest Girl Alive’. This was part of the 3 books my husband bought for me as a surprise and I simply love him for pampering me to no end! By Gosh, what a book! Now, I am aware that the book has been criticized widely for not being…

Book Review: The Book Of Tea

I used to have this personal ritual of sorts – indulging in a mug of herbal tea at the end of a long day! After marriage, when I shifted to a whole new city and entered a whole new job, things were quite difficult at first. The newness of the job coupled with the unfamiliarity…

Book Review: No Water, No Moon

I have always been fascinated by philosophy. It really is a fascinating subject (please ignore the repetition of words… couldn’t find an equivalent for it!! No synonyms, you din’t help either!) if it is conveyed to you in the right way! Why do I stress on the ‘right way’? Because, if it isn’t presented well,…

Book Review: The Silent Girls

This book gave me the creeps!!! From the first page to the last, I was on an emotional roller-coaster ride. For some books, the less you reveal the better; and this is definitely one of them! I’m afraid that saying anything about this book would spoil the story and suspense for all your readers! But…

Book Review: Fifteen Minutes of Shame

What led me to add this book in my Shelfari ‘List of to – reads’, download this book in Kindle and ultimately read this book was its title! Fifteen Minutes of Shame! How creative, right? Seeing the title, I wanted to know what exactly this 15 minutes of shame was all about! If the title…

Book Review: One Hundred Names

And I finally read yet another one of Cecelia Ahern’s gems, and while it was a good experience, it most definitely lacked Cecelia’s magic touch! All her books (at least the ones I have read till ‘One hundred names’) focuses on one simple aspect of our everyday, mundane existence and skillfully weaves an irresistible and…
