Book Review: Dreams Beyond Shadows by Kartikeya Ladha

About the Book If you are holding this book, there’s a chance you may be at a crossroads in your life, as once the author of this book was.
Feeling stuck and overwhelmed by society’s pressures, how can we learn, in today’s fast paced and results driven world, to truly dream beyond shadows?
Having touched the hearts of readers across the globe, Dream Beyond Shadows has now been published in its second edition, to celebrate the raw and compelling art of storytelling inscribed in its pages.
This book chronicles a turning point in the author’s life, a moment when he decided to turn against the current of his life and move in the opposite direction of social expectations and his own conditioned fears. It’s the story of an adventure that leaves behind the hustle and bustle of New York City, winds along the Ayahuasca vine through the tribal magic of shamanic ceremonies in the Amazon jungle, into the Incan legacy of Peru’s Sacred Valley and the sublime energy of the megalithic Machu Picchu.

Book Review: Poptastic by Victoria Holmes

Happy Pride Month! Are you reading any book based on LGBTQ? If yes, drop in your recco.

About the Book Bridesmaiding is a tedious business at the best of times, but as Julia discovers, the task is particularly cumbersome when one of the brides is your ex and her fiancĂ©e won’t stop sulking about it.
With the wedding threatening to dominate everything for the rest of the year, a bewildering embrace with a devastatingly attractive pop star offers a welcome distraction. Dating Krisha catapults Julia away from the paltry concerns of dress fittings and hen dos, but it also takes her away from her friends, and directly leads to her most disastrous f**k up yet. Much to her surprise, she discovers that embracing the role she’d accepted so reluctantly might just be exactly what she needs.
My Take on the Book There are very few debut novels which I read and it gives out a promising vibe, Poptastic by Victoria Holmes happened to be one of them.  TBH, I have never really read a lot of LGBTQ related nove…

Reading in Quarantine- #Birthdaybloghop

Books are good company, in sad times and happy times, for books are people – people who have managed to stay alive by hiding between the covers of a book.” – E.B. White
With the Coronavirus crisis and most of the nation quarantined inside the comfort of their homes, I can presume all the bookworms silently rejoicing, not that the world is coming to a standstill (that would be rude), but because of the reason that we will have all the possible time in the world to be reading and ticking off our TBR lists (Not precisely though). At least we thought we will have all the possible time in the world to read and read till our eyes are sore, but guess that remind yet another excuse of, ‘maybe, I will start reading tomorrow.' And, one would probably be asking, ‘why read? when we have other things to keep ourselves engaged. There are so many other things to do and catch up with- for instance, binge-watching book adapted series, attending zoom calls, video calling old friends to check on them,…

Book Review: Love in the Time of Quarantine by Siddhartha Gigoo

About the Book On Sunday, March the 22nd 2020, When India decided To lock herself down And send us—  Her 1.3 billion ungrateful, undeserving,  Yet beloved children— Into self-isolation To protect us From the deadly infection Of a bat-born,  Spikey ball-shaped, Gorgeous-looking Infinitesimal virus With a name  Befitting a royal, I set out to do  What all castle-builders and nighthawks do  On bright and lonesome  Sundays  That have nothing  Except dreams of hope  And fantasies of freedom  To offer. Told from multiple points of view, Commonwealth Prize-winning author Siddhartha Gigoo’s 'Love in the Time of Quarantine' clocks 30 days and nights in the lives of two lovers and a homeless family during a nation’s lock down and quarantine.
My Take on the Book Hope everyone is safe at home? I recently came across this book and was really intrigued to find out what it was actually about, as we are all quarantined and I wanted to understand what/how is Love in the time of Quarantine by author Siddhartha Gigoo. At …

Book Review: Bathinda to Bangkok by Vibha Batra

About the Book Is it going to be Mahi Way, or the Highway for Mahi? Mahi's back in the pavilion, but, ji, her dreams got mixed with mud. Hopes got crushum-crushed. Heart became pieces-pieces. As if life isn't tatti enough, one after another new-new siyapas are starting.  Mahi's hungry to grow Ludhiana to London, her party-planning company, to international height. Lavith, her international returned ex-love, is thirsty for her blood. Leave work-life balance, she's toh losing mental balance.  Her BFF (Bechari Frustoo Friend) Dingy's to-be-in-laws are refusing first night in Bangkok. Her other BFF, Dumpy's refusing to go anywhere without his Combo Pack -- his Sweet Knife GF Simran and her paindu brother Raj. Her brother Niku's business problem is not saying bye-bye. And her stepmom Bhooto (short for Bhootni) is – hai-hai – don't ask.  But the question bothering her the most is: Will her ex come back to her? Will it be Lav-ith or Leave-it for Mahi?
