City of Bones and Beyond the Black Door

  • by

Hi, welcome to my blog. This is a review post of the two novels I read this week: City of Bones and Beyond the Black Door. City of Bones is the 1st book from a 6 book series named The Mortal Instruments series and Beyond the Black Door is a standalone YA Dark Fantasy. I loved Beyond the Black Door and gave it 5 stars on Goodreads, actually 4.5. I’ll explain the reasoning behind that below in this post. I have mixed feelings about the City of Bones and gave it a 3.5 rating. So let’s begin with my least… Read More »City of Bones and Beyond the Black Door

Monday’s not coming

Hi, Welcome to my blog. It’s been a week since my last post. As you might have guessed, I was quite busy and couldn’t read much last week. On the brighter side though this week is turning out to be quite promising! I am already on the verge of completing two books, the reviews of which I’ll be updating in my next post. Meanwhile, this post is a review update on the single book that I managed to complete last week which is: Monday’s not coming by Tiffany D Jackson. Monday’s not coming Genre – Contemporary Fiction Author – Tiffany… Read More »Monday’s not coming

December Reading update and Book Review – Week 1

Hi, Welcome to my blog. This post is partly a reading update and partly a review post in line with my December reading plans. Let’s begin with my reading update. I read 3 books this week and have started reading one more book. I struggled a little to complete the last 2 books and I am having second thoughts about my choice of books for this month. I haven’t started reading the biggest books on my TBR and that’s stressing me out a little. I realize I am not in the mood for heavy, thoughtful and sad books this month.… Read More »December Reading update and Book Review – Week 1

December Reading progress update – Week 1

  • by

Hi, Welcome to my blog. Last week I posted my “ambitious” TBR plans for December and this post is where I let you know how I am faring with that plan. Two words: Not Good! A good plan today is better than a perfect plan tomorrow – George S Patton. An inspirational quote isn’t it? Notice the word “good” though? A good plan today is better than a perfect plan… but what if the plan kind of sucked in the first place? Let me explain. I realized my plan has a major flaw when I started reading the books. I… Read More »December Reading progress update – Week 1

December TBR Plans

Hi, Welcome to my Blog. It’s December (Already?) and I am excited to post my TBR plans for this month. I have a conservative number of books to read this month, nothing ambitious by normal standards. But, December is not a normal month is it? The hectic Exams and Holiday schedule will not allow me to continue reading at my usual pace. Nevertheless, I want to try, as I have an excellent collection of books with me this time, and I am just dying to jump right in. Some books have been in my TBR for a long time and… Read More »December TBR Plans

The Last Wish – Book Review

Hi, welcome to my blog. Before I post my December TBR, I thought I’ll post a quick review update on the last book I read in November. I left this book out in my November wrap up earlier for the obvious reason that I hadn’t completed it. I read: The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski, a Polish fantasy author, better known for his Witcher Saga. You read it right, the very Witcher saga that’s being adapted into a series. (I confess I stumbled on to this book series only after seeing the Netflix Trailers!). The Last Wish (How ironic! 🙂… Read More »The Last Wish – Book Review

November Wrap up

Hey guys, it’s time for my monthly wrap-up blog post. November, my birthday month has been quite a productive and busy month for me. I completed 9 books, 10 if I include The Last Wish which I am on the verge of completion. I am not talking about The Last Wish in this wrap up though. I do confess that most of the books I read were either Graphic Novels or in Audiobook format, so that did aid in me clearing my TBR faster. So let’s get down to the stats, shall we? 1. Aghora at the left hand of… Read More »November Wrap up

Aghora I – At the Left Hand of God

Goodreads rating: 4.22 Rrkreadsbooks rating: 3.5 This book has intrigued me since the time I saw it’s title in Goodreads. I knew this book would be quite unconventional and probably controversial. I wasn’t disappointed. Most of the events mentioned in the book seem straight out of a fantasy book, albeit a scary one. At times I would wonder if I am reading a book about a parallel universe or the one we are currently in. This book is loaded with symbolism and explains many concepts of Hinduism differently. As a practicing Hindu, I have grown up with a decent understanding… Read More »Aghora I – At the Left Hand of God
