About us

I belong to the last group of reader. 

I started reading when I was just a child. It was my grandfather who cultivated the habit of reading in me. During summer vacations, he used to buy diamond comics, Raj comics,Nandan, Champak, Chandamama books for me. I spent my entire vacation reading these awesome books and totally immersed myself in the unknown world of books. He always motivated me to read the newspaper daily. This little motivation from him finally emerged as my interest towards reading and made me a big bookworm.

I love to explore books of almost all genres but crime and thriller, historical, mythological and romantic books are my best reading pals.

I found myself attached with every book that I have read, thus I am very possessive about my books. I wish to make a mini library in future.

In this blog, with each post, I try to evaluate books rationally so it could help other readers to pick the right book.

Finally I am a devotee of Lord Shiva who believes in Karma and live by the motto of ‘Plain living, high thinking’.

I am a content writer by profession and blogger by passion.

  • Thanks for this amazing #giveaway @thebooklingscrate 
I love reading books because it's allow me to sink in a different world which I don't find in real world. I get transported to another realm in minutes . I meet different people, diffrent emotions just sitting at one place. 📚

  • Just started this book today and finished 100 pages in one go. Quite an interesting read till now. ☺
This is the signed book send by the author (swipe to read the beautiful message written by the author)

Here is the blurb of the book :

Sonal Kapoor is a reserved, hardworking entrepreneur running a florist boutique in London. She fights a paradoxical battle between her responsibilities at work and her only family there - her mother. And caught in between these is a story of Sonal's past - a terrible event that got her to flee India. Scars from her troubled past continues to manifest in multitude of ways, reminding her constantly about that horrific event. 
Serendipity happens when Dr. Ryan Percy enters her life and Sonal is challenged in ways she had never imagined. Ryan turns out as everything from Sonal's quintessential definition of the man of her dreams - BUT, Ryan too comes to the party with his own baggage from the past. A pivotal piece in the jigsaw of their lives appears to be missing. Could their puzzling lives be ever completed by each other? Do they complete or destroy each other? .

  • #reading a book is a fun, it simply opens up a new realm where you find peace, sorrow, and happiness. But there comes a certain time in life when the readers don’t just want to read, they can’t simply proceed from 10 pages. So if this thing is happening with you then you are definitely suffering from #readersblock This is similar to the #writersblock but where writer’s block is an acceptable aspect, reader’s block is not.

Reader’s block can happen when you read some really pathetic book (Yes! It happens with me 😐) or are mentally distracted. However, there are many reasons but these two are the primary reasons.

If you are also suffering from reader’s block then do not worry you are not alone! I have shared some easy tips to revive your #readinghabit 📚The link is the bio 📚

#bookreview of #jaya an illustrated retelling of #mahabharat by @devduttmyth 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
This is the second book of the Devdutt Pattanaik I have read after Sita: An illustrated retelling of Ramayana. I have already read various retelling of Mahabharata; however, this retelling is totally different from others. 
This book is not simply the retelling but a treasure of lessons. The author has accumulated various stories which are scattered across the country and given a meaningful essence to the readers
