Six of Crows: A Beautiful Chaotic Mess

Love was the guest you welcomed and couldn’t be rid of Nina Zenik (Spoilers obviously!!!) I recently finished reading the Shadow and Bone series by Leigh Bardugo and it was breathtaking. The books are about a mysterious Shadow Fold and the protagonist’s quest to banish it. The ending of the series was totally unexpected andContinue reading “Six of Crows: A Beautiful Chaotic Mess”

Wanda Vision

This show was the first show that I got to experience with the rest of the world!!! Usually, I end up watching reruns or shows that have completed fully; mainly because I can’t actually wait a week to find out how it all ends… But with this show, this amazing tribute to all sitcoms, everythingContinue reading “Wanda Vision”

Haven’t they Grown? by Sophie Hannah

MILD SPOILERS I’ve been waiting to read this book for a really long time. I first heard the premise last year and was immediately intrigued. But I couldn’t get my hand on the book till recently. The plot of the book is explained so curtly in the title. A middle-aged woman tries to spy onContinue reading “Haven’t they Grown? by Sophie Hannah”

The Eighth Detective by Alex Pavesi

I’ve read plenty of murder stories. In school, I used to inhale Agatha Christie books. If you check the library, chances are you’d find my roll number on any random Agatha Christie book. (They had a slip in the front for the librarians to keep track of who borrowed which book). But lately, I’ve driftedContinue reading “The Eighth Detective by Alex Pavesi”

The Mary Shelley Club

An absolutely brilliant page turner by Goldy Moldavsky!!! One of the fastest books I’ve read this year. This book falls under the horror genre in YA. Regular readers of this blog (and by that, I mean the four people who follow me on Twitter) will know that I am an ardent fan of YA. ThisContinue reading “The Mary Shelley Club”

The Sanatorium by Sarah Pearse

The Sanatorium by Sarah Pearse was the Reese Witherspoon’s book club pick for February, 2021 and everyone knows her book club picks are complex and well-deserving of the honour. I read The Death of Mrs Westaway by Ruth Ware and The Guest List by Lucy Foley, after finding out, that they had Reese Witherspoon’s sealContinue reading “The Sanatorium by Sarah Pearse”

Contagion and Immunity

This is another book recommendation from uppercaseya account from Instagram. The previous recommendations like Mexican Gothic, Lock every door and the Truly Devious series were remarkable and captivating books. I have come to trust their opinion and this account is the main reason I started reading voraciously again. They posted a series of sci-fi YAContinue reading “Contagion and Immunity”

A Higher Loyalty by James Comey

Having watched numerous crime shows like CSI, Bones, Criminal Minds etc. I have always wanted to know what goes on in real-life FBI investigations. You would assume a book written by a former FBI Director would be filled with blood, gore and guns; alas, this book is not for the crime buffs. This focuses onContinue reading “A Higher Loyalty by James Comey”

Mundane reality or just plain boring?

I recently had the opportunity to read two very similar books: ‘Everything I never told you’ by Celeste Ng and ‘The Perfect Nanny’ by Leila Slimani. Both these books claimed to revolve around a crime; a suicide in the former book and the murder of two children in the latter. They both received great reviewsContinue reading “Mundane reality or just plain boring?”

A thrilling story about an unemployed girl being drawn into something sinister in a luxurious apartment. The heroine is penniless and desperate for a job, so responds to an advertisement for apartment sitting. But as time goes on, and the apartment’s reputation is revealed to be horrific, she starts having second thoughts. The book isContinue reading “Lock every door by Riley Sagar”
