Book review: Dumplin' by Julie Murphy

Presenting my first ever buddy read with none other than Evelina @ AvalinahsBooks. She has done this kind of review a few times already and you can check them on her blog. This is my first time doing a buddy read and I am so glad that we both enjoyed this book equally. This review will be an interview-style post where each one of us will answer 7 questions that we asked each other after finishing the book.

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 | Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows by Balli Kaur Jaswal | Funny, dark and authentic

Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows : Book review

Before reading any further, just keep one thing in mind: This book is NOT just what the title says! I know, whenever anyone sees this title, the first thing that comes to mind is that it contains just the erotic stories. So if anyone doesn’t read Erotica, (s)he will certainly not pick this. Even, I thought so in the place but since I like reading Erotica, I didn’t mind. But today, when I am writing this review, I am really happy that I read this book. It has some erotic stories but yet it is a tale of self-being and expressing your desires openly. This book has so much going on beyond the steamy title.

Book Review | Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur

Book Review: Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur

I read this composition way back in February this year. This was my first attempt in reading the genre- Poetry, and to my expectations, it did surprise me. Though it was a quick read and I finished it within an hour, it was just BEAUTIFUL.

I had read other reviews about this book and I can understand why some people have a different opinion on this. Probably they have read too mean poetry and thus expected it to be something different. But for me, as a reader of poetry for the first time (obviously after school 😛 ), it was wonderful.
