Bullet Point Review | Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman

Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman

Guys, this book was incredible and I wasn’t really expecting it to be so good. It was brutal but honest. I seriously have so many feelings about this book that, maybe, this review doesn’t justify it. You know, sometimes you come across such books where you feel so happy that you read it and become sad thinking about the actual story. This is what exactly happened to me for this book. This story is about Kiko, who is half Asian (a Japanese-American). She is trying to find her place in life while dealing with the stress of her family and her narcissistic mother, who is always surrounded by her own thoughts and always considered Kiko as inferior. She deals with her childhood trauma and social anxiety while in search of her real motive and the aim to get admission in an art school.

Okay, you must be thinking what is Oreo-ness in the title? Well, it’s a word that I derived just now for all the Oreos love that this book offers. If you love Oreos, you have to read it!

But yet, without delaying further, I would simply like to give you 10 reasons to read it!

Bullet Point Review | The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert

The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert

Okay, so today I am posting the review of a book which is currently in too much hype and was actually one of the most anticipated reads of many, including mine. But I didn’t enjoy it as much as I expected. This is so sad considering the beautiful cover (the alternate edition) and the blurb gave so much hope to me 🙁 In fact, I realize it now, that I went into a reading slump last month because of this book only. It was too dragged. In simple words, this book was not for me.

Backlist Review | The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon

The Sun is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon

I am such a sucker for cute romances and this book was no less. You must have heard how this book is all about insta-love and how people usually hate that. I agree. I too hate insta-loves in most of the cases, but this book doesn’t fall into that case, for me. Despite insta-love-y storyline, in the beginning, I loved it because it was more than that. I loved both Daniel and Natasha as the characters and I loved Nicola Yoon’s writing, though it was my first ever read of hers.

eARC Review | The Marriage Pact by Michelle Richmond | Bizarre but engrossing

The Marriage Pact by Michelle Richmond

I have never been so confused before about the rating of a book. I struggled to give this story between 3.5 and 4 stars and eventually settled on the later one because of the unique concept that it portrays. The Marriage Pact is a psychological suspense thriller with an interesting plot. Eventually, in the west, the rate with which the marriages are failing, is pretty high. In such a world, would you be prepared to do anything to make your marriage successful?

Book Review | Second Chance by Sandeep Jatwa | Do you believe in second chances?

Second Chance by Sandeep Jatwa - book Review

The word second chance is ambitious in itself, isn’t it? How many of us actually get a second chance for correcting our deeds? Perhaps, Shekhar Kapoor got his second chance.

This is a story about billionaire Shekhar Kapoor, owner of Aerowalk shoes. He did many wrong things to remain in the industry and is quite arrogant because of his money. He destroyed lives of many people because of his desires to always be on top. But then, something happens which he didn’t believe “can happen to him because he was rich”. Yes, the death!
