eARC Review | Wives of War by Soraya Lane

wives-of-war-by-soraya-lane-book-review

Why I picked this book? Because I am a sucker for beautiful covers 😀 When I saw this book on NetGalley I instantly requested for it just because of the cover. I had no idea what this book will turn into. I am glad that I picked it up as it proved to be a great read.

This is a story about three nurses during World War 2. The story starts with Scarlet, who volunteers for joining the battlefield hospital, but her main aim was to find her fiancé Thomas who was missing from past few months.

Happy Rakshabandhan | Celebrating the love of siblings (5 Literary siblings worth mentioning)

Celebrating Rakshabandhan with literary siblings

Happy Rakshabandhan to all of you 🙂 So those who don’t know what is this festival, let me give you a brief about it (probably you can Google the details). It is an Indian festival, basically in Hindu religion, which celebrates the bond of love, care, and duty between brothers and sisters. Rakshabandhan means “bond of protection”. In this festival, a sister ties a rakhi (sacred thread) on her brother’s wrist and prays for his prosperity and happiness, to show her love and in return, the brother gives her a token gift and a promise to protect her. Though it is a special day for both of them, surely sisters often get fancy gifts and convert it to their day 😀

eARC Review | The Chaos of Longing by K.Y. Robinson

eARC Review: The Chaos of Longing by K.Y. Robinson | Poetry of love and longing

This was my third poetry book that I read this year after Milk and Honey and Stuff I’ve Been Feeling Lately. I loved both those poetries and expected same from it, as the title seemed entruiging. I came to know about this title through poetry recommendations on NetGalley. However, it was way too different than the formers.

This poetry collection is divided into four parts: Inception, Longing, Chaos and Epiphany. The good thing about this poetry was that the author is speaking about herself in most of the parts. She is a woman of color (WoC) and we can imagine to some point that what she might have been gone through in her childhood. A few poems shows her roots and felt like raw thoughts.

monthly-wrap-up-july-2017

Ahh.. so July just finished! I don’t understand how the time flies by. It was literally like the first day of July yesterday and there was my birthday and now it’s finished? But overall, this month was good enough for me and here I am concluding my monthly recap for the month of July, on last day 🙂 This is not just an update of my bookish things, rather a complete package including non-bookish things too.

#DoubleReview | Disney Beauty and the Beast Series

Duology Review - Disney Beauty and the Beast

Since this was a short series, I decided to do a #DoubleReview. I should tell you that this was my first ever Manga.. like ever. Obviously I didn’t knew beforehand about manga so I had some trouble reading it at first. But after some research, I was on track, and oh boy it was exactly as the movie (minus songs and detailed graphics). Yes, this is an adaptation of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast movie which was released recently starring Emma Watson.

Book Review | The THC: Under a Gibbous Moon by Manoj V Jain

The THC: Under a Gibbous Moon by Manoj V. Jain | Book Review

I won this book in a giveaway so I had no idea what this book was about (Yes I just enter randomly sometimes 😛 ). I just saw the opportunity to grab the book and I did. But the main reason why I decided to enter the giveaway in the first place was its title. Don’t you think the title is different and suspenseful? Well, the THC stands for The Holistic Center. It’s a fictional center setup in the story where the broken hearts are cured, those looking for closure get insights and return to the world with repaired soul.
