top-ten-tuesday-flippingthruthepages

Happy Tuesday guys! Today’s topic for Top Ten Tuesday is Halloween Freebie! (Happy Halloween! Let your creativity run wild with a themed post to celebrate!). I hope you guys had wonderful Halloween 🙂 We don’t celebrate Halloween here and neither do I read many spooky books. So instead of any Halloween themed list, I am taking a different take: Top ten books #bookstagram made me buy. Trust me it was very difficult for me to compile a list of just 10 books. Nowadays, most f my books purchase is based on #bookstagram only. Nevertheless, I made a list with the books which were super hyped (including book series and standalones), and yes I haven’t read any of them yet ( I know 🙁 )

Turtles All the Way Down by John Green | 10 reasons it demands to be read

Turtles All the Way Down by John Green

So, this is weird. I have never ever written a review immediately after finishing the book. And while I am writing this, it is 1:30 AM here! Can you believe it? This book just made me crazy and I have like multiple thoughts running wild into me, like spirals (yeah I am using the line from this book) and I want to share all those thoughts into this post, right now. Yes, I can’t wait to write it because I don’t want to miss anything that I am feeling right now. And pardon me before you go any further, this is going to be my longest review ever

Top Ten Tuesday #6 | Top Ten Unique Book Titles

top-ten-tuesday-flippingthruthepages

Happy Tuesday guys! Today’s topic for Top Ten Tuesday is Top Ten Unique Book Titles. Well, it is something interesting, isn’t it? Titles play a main role towards generating the curiosity among readers for a book, in my opinion. While some titles are simple giving the basic story of the book while some are created in a mystical way and its relevance occur only if you read the book. I like the later category as it allows me to explore the different meanings that the title can deliver.

Thank you, both of you 🙂 I love doing award questions ad I have attempted my best to answer the questions of both of you.

Book Review | The Whole Shebang by Lalita Iyer | Sticky bits of being a woman

The Whole Shebang by Lalita Iyer : Book Review

This is my first attempt to review a non-fiction over here (I mean on my blog). I don’t normally read non-fiction, but I must admit that I have enjoyed every single of them that I have read. This book was no different. I pretty enjoyed it. The first thing that attracts you towards this book is its title. It is a catchy one. Normally I find it little difficult to get hooked up into a non-fiction from the very first page. But this book was an exception on this parameter. It was right on the track from the very first page. This is a book by a woman, about women. It highlights some of the basic problems that women face on the daily basis and Lalita Iyer has presented them in a way that made you tickle.

Book Review | The Poison of Love by K.R. Meera | The haunting tale of corrosive love

The Poison of Love by K.R. Meera

First of all, tell me what have you thought when you read the title? Creepy, mysterious, haunting? This is what I felt exactly after finishing this novella. I have to admit something here – I have never felt so terrified reading any book like I felt during reading this, although it’s not a horror book. Can you believe this? This book was so creepy and haunting that I literally had goosebumps just after I finished the FIRST page. But I think this is the thing which makes it unique. The main motive was, I think, to make the readers understand how the love can make you blind and can force you to make the choices which you would have never made otherwise.

Stacking the Shelves #7 | Bookstagram effect

Stacking the Shelves

So another Saturday, another Stacking the Shelves post 😀 I sometimes think, can I actually, ever, stop buying the books? And my brain answers this: Are you Kidding?But the truth is I am not even guilty 😀 Is this make me bad? I guess not! So this week, I finally got some of the books that #bookstagram community was constantly raving about this whole year. Actually, this is the festive season in India (Diwali is around the corner, YaY!), so the prices were actually down or say there were huge discounts. And what is even the benefit of discounts if we didn’t buy books? Right? “D
