About the Author:

For the mortal world, I pretend to be a Software Engineer who works hard (or hardly?) in the hours of a day. I am the guy next door, a hard core Harry Potter fan and a movie buff. I literally ‘live’ every movie, I have strong opinions about its content and I hate it when a movie based on an interesting concept is messed up for the sake of commercial value. I enjoy watching cartoon shows (doremon, dora and Choota Bheem) with my son. I never get bored of listen to the endless chatter of my wife. When I’m not writing, I make toys for children.

But beyond the boundaries of this ‘cholesterol rich’ coil, I am a rider of rapturous thoughts. I am a thinker, a philosopher, a seeker, a story-teller, a writer, a wanderer and every other thing that a thought can be. At times some of these figments fire out of my thoughtful bowl and command me to write, muse, create, recreate, destroy…EXPRESS!

Who Am I? I have been asking this question to myself since 33 years, and I got a different answer always. Sometimes I get confused and think, am I asking the right question to seek the correct answer? or may be that am I missing the  whole fantastic universal drama around me while I am busy finding an answer to an irrelevant question?

Does the answer even matter?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Nayanika Mahtani once harboured dreams of becoming a stage actor, but she followed the proverbial left side of her brain to do an MBA at IIM Bangalore and became an investment banker. A decade later, she followed her heart to live in Africa. Since then, she’s been following the right side of her brain and is now an author and screenwriter. Nayanika’s books include Ambushed and The Gory Story of Genghis Khan (aka Don’t Mess with the Mongols).

A place no bird would ever want to visit. On a secret mission, the doves are taken hostage by a villainous stork whose dark plan is to rule the bird-world. Danger lurks in every corner of the caves the doves are imprisoned in, and they wonder whom they can trust? The talkative green pigeon, the mesmerizing whistling thrush or the magnificent golden eagle?

The feather-raising adventure ends finally in a story the doves dub as ‘the story of all stories’–one that deeply affects Shikar and alters his notions of himself, his past and his origins.

8. The Incredible Adventures of Mr Cheeks by Tazmeen Amna: A wonderful concoction of courage, friendship and rebellion against society’s status quo

unnamed8.jpg‘Bunneez cannot seeng,’ the goat said.

‘Not posibaal. Ze nightingales already booked!’

The Annual Carnival of Hastings is fast approaching and Mr Cheeks, a dapper tap-dancing chihuahua; Mr Grey, a grumpy Persian cat who paints; and Hopper, an anxious rabbit who sings, are super excited! All geared up to show their uniqueness, they set out to sign up for the talent shows. But little do they know that in Hastings, everyone has their set roles: only nightingales are allowed to sing and only peacocks can dance. But is that fair? Seeking to bring about a change, the oddballs hatch a risky yet brilliant plan to teach Hastings about free will and the joy of not fitting in. An exciting journey ensues, where the three friends face the challenge of following their heart -even when it isn’t the easiest thing to do.

The God War by Kabeer Ess Kay

59dd1761-d41e-4ec0-956e-61edaf651f2c.jpgI received the book The God War by Kabeer Ess Kay as a review copy from Author’s Channel and I am thankful to them for the same.

The blurb:

This is a story of a common folk who observes the world minutely around him as he grows. He sees conflicts in the society in the name of different Gods. As a pediatric doctor in the labour room attending to new-borns he sees them pop out of their mother’s wombs innocent and un-initiated into any religion. Soon they are stamped with a divine tag and a distinct faith. They learn to have an exalted view of their own faith as they denigrate the others.

It is sheer serendipity that the lead man finds himself amidst happenings that go to form this story. The dissensions go from squabbles and scuffles to acts of terrorism. A holy shrine is attacked by the armed forces to flush out the nefarious elements spreading terror. The masses are furious as their sanctum sanctorum has been violated. The empress of the land is killed in anger and resentment. It leads to mayhem. Many innocents have to endure torture and gruesome death. This is cruel, pitiless and heart rending.

There are some unforeseen unfortunate incidents that go to complete the narrative.

The story:

Set in 1984, this book the story of Dr Chander Mohan, a native of Amritsar, who has been working as a doctor in a hospital in Delhi for the last five years. It is October 31, 1984, the Empress has been assassinated by her bodyguards and riots have started. Chander visits home on his 30th birthday and his mother tells him that his neighbour, Bittoo is also a victim of the riots.

And thus starts the flashback, right from when Chander was a child who lived near the Golden Temple in Amritsar, till the present day.

My take:

In the introduction, the author mentions that there are conflicts in the society because of different faiths. They are different as they are born in different faiths and by default, they are what they are. They have faith tagged on them as they are born in families living with those faiths.

Written in first person from Chander’s point of view, the story traces the life and experiences of Chander Mohan right from his childhood, school days, college days  to the present day. The author has described in detail the history of various religions and the customs, traditions and taboos associated with them.

The language is simple and the narrative is very realistic, it is as if Chander is siting and telling us a story.  And the best part is that the names of some places and characters have not been mentioned and terms like, head of the cow, underbelly, Empress have been used, but it was easy to identify people and places. The descriptions are detailed and I could picturise many scenes as some of them reminded me of my childhood.

Overall, an interesting book which tells the reader a lot about religions, places and people. The glossary at the end of the book gives the reader an idea of the facts in the book.

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of the book from Authors Channel in return for my honest review. I have NOT received any monetary compensation for the same.

 

 

Book Boyfriend by Claire Kingsley

51RtOcENXaL.jpgI picked up the book, Book Boyfriend by Claire Kingsley, after many recommendations from my Facebook friends.

The blurb:

He’s too hot for words.

Mia
Alex Lawson might as well be the hottest book boyfriend imaginable. A fun, romantic, possessive, panty-melting man. And the best part? He’s real. For a girl like me—a slightly awkward book addict—Alex is a dream come true, straight off the pages of my favorite romance novels.

But our story is turning into a whirlwind romance—the kind that only exists in books. Are we heading toward our own happily ever after? Or is he too good to be true?

Alex
Here’s the thing: I’m not a bad guy. Lying to Mia wasn’t part of the plan. Finding success as a romance author using a female pen name wasn’t part of the plan either. But sometimes life takes unexpected turns.

Like realizing the woman you’re falling for is your alter-ego’s online best friend.

Online, she thinks I’m a woman named Lexi. In person, she knows I’m all man. I want to worship her body and claim every inch of her. But if she discovers my secret, I could lose everything.

***Book Boyfriend is a stand alone romance with a guaranteed to make you swoon HEA. It contains mature language and content and is intended for a mature audience. Fair warning, ladies—Alex will melt your panties off, so have an extra pair on hand before you one click.***

The story:

Alex Lawson lives in Seattle and writes computer codes for a living. He had wanted to be a novelist ever since he was a kid, almost majored in English, but his father talked him into getting a computer science degree in case writing did not work out and here he is. Writing is more of a hobby than a career for him and he writes science fiction in his free time. His younger sister, Kendra, an editor, edits his work and wants him to quit his job become a full-time writer, but he has bills to pay and debts to clear, so he hangs on. His brother, Caleb, is a doctor and a single parent. One day, Kendra suggests that he write what sells, ie romance, and he does so with great reluctance (divorced after a brief and tumultuous marriage, he feels he is not someone who can write romance). She reads it and insists that he publishes it under a pen name. So, Alex Lawson becomes Lexi Logan and publishes 7 books within a year, quits his job, and tells his family that he is a work from home consultant, but it is his writing that helps pay his bills.

Mia Sullivan works in the business office of a hospital as a clinical coordinator. But, socially, she is an introvert and a bookworm, more of a book addict. She has a happily married elder sister, Shelby, who believes in love and wants to see Mia married. Mia loves to read romance and even starts reviewing books of that genre on her romance book review blog, Bookworm Babe, BB. She is anonymous on line and keeps it from her family and friends. She meets Lexi Logan through her blog and they become really good online friends, so much so that she shares everything with ‘her’.

One day, when Alex is at a book signing event, trying to see what happens, he runs into Mia and they get talking. In the meantime, conversations continue between Lexi and BB and Alex realises who BB is but he feels he cannot tell her as it could risk his career and so he decides to keep his friendship with BB separate from his relationship with Mia. One thing leads to another, and they fall in love.

What would happen when Mia finds out that Alex is Lex? Read the book to find out.

My take:

A cute, romantic story with realistic and relatable characters. Mia is someone we could meet anywhere (I also blog anonymously, so I would know that). And Alex, do people like him exist, I don’t know, but Alex did. I enjoyed the book, it is light hearted, though I would like to warn the readers about the explicit adult content. The story moves in first person from the point of view of both Alex and Mia and the character from whose point of view the story is being told is mentioned at the beginning of the chapter. The feelings of both the characters have been described in detail. The secondary characters, like Alex’s and Mia’s family have important roles to play in the story, and for that matter even her cat, Fabio. The relationship between Alex and his family and even Mia and Shelby has been described beautifully.

The language is simple and easy to understand. The conversations between the characters were my highpoint of the story. The story has a lot of things, family relationships, humour, romance, friendship, happiness, sadness and the surprise at the end.

This is the first book that I read by this author, I would definitely like to read more from her, may be Kendra and Caleb’s stories.

 

The Missing Fairy Princess by Walter Salvadore Pereira

51Yh2BsvJNjLI received the book The Missing Fairy Princess by Walter Salvadore Pereira as a review copy from BookR3vi3ws and am thankful to them.

The blurb:

The Missing Fairy Princess is the story of a fairy princess pitted against a powerful witch. The witch overhears a conversation between two colleagues about a potent new mantra being developed by one of them. Overcome by greed, she steals that mantra. She then hatches an elaborate plot to frame an adversary for her misdeed. Her intention is to exact sweet revenge from her foe and at the same time, get away with the theft. The victim, caught in her vicious web, is doomed to disgrace and a life sentence on a harsh penal colony. Meanwhile, the witch learns from her crystal ball about an imminent threat from a fairy princess wearing a pink tiara. To ward off that threat, she kidnaps the fairy princess, wipes her memory clean and then turns her into a two-year-old girl. Unfortunately for the culprit, she has goofed us by kidnapping the wrong fairy princess, Merlyn, instead of Ashlyn, her twin.

Will Ashlyn be able to solve the mystery of her missing twin and stop the cunning witch in her evil plot? Find out in the book which is an interesting mix of magical realism and whodunit.

My take:

The book was whimsical with just the amount of magic. It had all the elements of a wonderful fantasy read. I loved the development of the characters. It made them feel so real as if they were jumping off the page. The characters were very interesting and three dimensional. It was almost as if they had come to life. This book was so magical that it even had dragons which are one of my favourite mythical creatures. Safe to say I loved this inclusion. The book is fast paced and there is never a moment when the book drags. The second half of the book kept me on the edge of my seat in anticipation. The plot was fresh and the story kept me enthralled. The book had a very good flow and the chapters was small.

This book is sure to be enjoyed by children as well as adults. It was unputdownable. The author has written this book in wonderful prose and I’m certainly looking forward to reading more by him.

I find that it is best to go in blind in this book because it has many twists and turns that you’ll never see coming. This book is recommended for everybody who’s a child at heart.

DISCLAIMER: I received this book as a review copy and have not received any monetary compensation doe the same.

From An-Other Land

by 

Tanushree Ghosh

 
 
BLURB
 
Never has been the conversation on immigration more pertinent than now, post 2016 US elections. From cancellation of refugee protection and zero tolerance to undercurrent crackdown on H visas, the resurgence of nationalism is hitting the globalized population head-on. 
 
But what is immigration today? A question of life or death – fleeing of persecution? A compulsion? Or a mere pursuance of privilege? 
And what is the US today? A land of opportunities? Or a quagmire impossible to comprehend, inherently racist and selfish?
 
From An-Other Land dives deep into immigration today for the Indian diaspora and its many facets with characters who seek to define themselves in an intercultural setting that is less and less sure of itself. A reality check and a guide for anyone who wants to understand the modern-day US.
