Review Diaries(Ping by Rashi Dubey)

Name of the book - Ping by Rashi Dubey.
Status - 5 on 5 stars with a big hug on the side
QOTD - What is the worst thing you ever said to anyone?
AOTD - I just told a writer that I hated the protagonist's other half just one page into the book. Now I think I adore the other half.
My take on the book -
There was time when I believed that life was very black and white and grey was just a lie told by people who didn't want to not responsible for their actions. Now I am old and wise, and I know better. No one is bad over all, they have their creepy bad times and sparkling good times. Ping is about these two strangers who met on the web and over the span of getting to know each other chats they became more. They faced lots of different problems, some with family other was due to their long distance but what actually matters is that they found their way back to each other.
I really liked this one and at the risk of giving out any spoilers I will just end my take by saying give this cute book a read, you will love it for sure.

Review Diaries- (The Field by Tracy Richardson)

Name of the book- The Field by Tracy Richardson
Status - Read and enjoyed
Stars given - 5 +/5 stars
My take on the book -
I really liked it. Imagine reliving your childhood and taking over the world together. But sometimes life throws curveballs at you and the best thing one can do is be yourself and hold on tight for the ride.
There's another important and special thing about the protagonist, he is very intuitive. He can literally give his thoughts wings. That part of the story really caught my attention, many a times I guess how a story ends. So color me very happy, I am uber cool special. Now all I need to do is tap in my mind and make things happen.
Another important thing about the story is that the guy is very much like a true superhero. He knows that with great powers come great responsibilities. I mean what's there not to like here. A cute love story, a good friend with power to do well. It was amazing and awesome.
So I, Manali Dey will love to give 5+ stars on 5 stars.
Wonder if there will be a second part?
QOTD - Who is your favorite Superhero?

Review Diaries (The Dark Side Of The Moon by Shubham Arora)

QOTD - Choose between - Romance or Horror, Flowers or Chocolates, Pizza or Pasta, Fruit Cake or Pastry.
Name of the book - The Dark Side Of The Moon by Subham Arora.
Stars given - 5 on 5 stars and a bag full of questions.
My take on the book-
This book has essentially 3 short stories. None of them connected, other than being together - immortalized in a book forever. Ohkay, feel free to ignore my cheesy self. Valentines Day has me walking on air. So coming back to the book, three stories are called
1. The Last Skype.
2. In My Head.
3. The Ritual.
Every story is unique and amazing in it's own way. The first one is about a couple who have been together for a long time. One of them had to move for work and that's when things got sketchy. What happens next isn't something anyone could have guessed.
The second story is about a doctor and his patient. Many of us have passed judgments on others, without putting ourselves in their shoes. Well it's about time someone or something takes over.
 And the third one will make you read it twice, not cause you will not understand the language, which is simple and classy but the story will get you in the feels.
For me the second story was an absolute favorite. Wonder which one is the author's favorite? Or is he even allowed to have favorites?
:) ;)

Review Diaries (The Last Skype by Subham Arora)

Name of the book - The Last Skype by Subham Arora
Status- Read (in under thirty minutes). That's a new score for me. High 5!!!
Stars- 5.5 on 5 stars.
My take on the book -
This is book 1 in what will without question be one of those books that leave a mark. I will be honest I was kinda worried about the book, I mean it's so short, I thought I will be left hanging :(
But that wasn't the case, I adored it. I mean come on, a narrative that makes you feel emotions, like every freaking laughter to tear drop to heart stopping fear. Isn't that why we read books im the first place? To feel.
So the book ends with a big cliffhanger but this time around I don't feel like writing a big letter to the writer and voicing my pain for the abovementioned cliffhanger. Nopes, not gonna do it. Cause I am sure the writer will soon bring us the book 2. Right?
QOTD - What are your feelings about cliffhangers?
(ps don't ya use any un-parliamentary words)

Review Diaries (The Forbidden Kingdom Musical Festival Tale: The Clash of Two Worlds by Joshua Dean Perry)

Name of the book - The Forbidden Kingdom Musical Festival Tale: The Clash of Two Worlds by Joshua Dean Perry
Status- Oh my Dragon!!! 5 on 5.
QOTD - How big a fan are you of short stories?
AOTD - I wasn't before but now I am a true believer!
My take on the book-
For a book that's less than even a hundred pages this book packs a mean punch. It's a story about friends and family, it's one about greed and mindless destruction, it's about good finding it's way back on top. A young and curious girl is seen roaming around in the woods searching for her next adventure and this little girl is special, for she has a heart so big that the only thing that can compete with it is her courage. Reading this wonderful tale also made me dream a little bit, it was almost like Lord of the Ring meets Braveheart. Once I was slowly reaching the end I was worried that the author will keep me hanging with some cruel cliffhanger cause no way this story can be finished this soon. But I am happy to announce that it isn't the case. The story was amazing, it had emotions of love and hate, of friendship and enmity, of greed and sacrifice, of revenge and defense.
I personally loved it and am looking forward to the next b
ook.

Review Diaries (Black Rainbow by J.J.McAvoy)

Name - Black Rainbow by J.J.McAvoy
Status- Read, Loved, Rinse and Repeat!
Stars- 500 on 5
About the book -
A sweet and steamy New Adult Romance from Amazon bestselling author of the Ruthless People series, J.J. McAvoy…

After an erotic one-week fling with a musician she meets in a bar, Thea Cunning never expects to see Levi Black again. Then Monday morning comes around, and she discovers that her former lover is not only her professor, but he’s also one of the top criminal lawyers in the state of Massachusetts.

With everyone in class vying to be one of the twelve disciples—a group of twelve students that Professor Black takes under his wing—tensions run high. Thea considers dropping his class, given their passionate week together and their undeniable chemistry. After all, there are other (less infuriatingly sexy) law professors on campus.

But to accomplish her goal and get her father out of prison, Thea knows she needs to learn under the best of the best—and that’s Levi Black.

But can she learn under the best, without being under the best?

My take-
Ever read a book that made you wanna jump in and be part of the action?
Ever been in a situation where the book you are reading makes you wanna be that girl, not only cause you get to date an amazing book-boyfriend who is the total package (he sings, plays the guitar and looks like a dream but is also a pro in adulting), for that's only half the reason, the other one being a female protagonist /lead who is a true blue flesh and blood human being. She makes mistakes and tries her best to learn from it, she has had a very traumatic childhood but isn't a victim any more, she is a tad bit of a wild child but takes care of her loved ones. She is aaaaahhhhmazing! Don't get me wrong you will wanna be her, for her character and strength and brain and also be tempted by her enemy turned friends and future in laws. Trust me when I say this once you take the J.J.McAvoy route there's no going back. She gets you, hook-line-and-sinker. Ps I love this girl like she is my bestie from a different life.

Review Diaries (The Watchmaker and Time by Devang Kanavia)

Book- The Watchmaker and Time by Devang Kanavia
Status - Read and Liked a lot.
QOTD - How's your relationship with your grandparents?
AOTD - My grandparents played a big part in shaping my life, personality and childhood. I owe me being a decent human being to them and also my Mimi (love you Momma)
So the book starts with a over active kid waiting patiently for her grandfather to fix her watch or at least she is trying to hold still. I mean we all have been in her place and boy oh boy I still find it hard to sit down quietly for more than 5 minutes at a stretch.
This is kid questions anything and everything under the sun and she reminds me of me. Honestly this book made me remember my antics with my grandparents. I loved it. But this isn't just a simple story about grandparents and grandchildren,it's about life in a very macro level. It's about time, from start to finish to back again. It's about what actually may be going on. Ever wondered how our lives came into being? Like the basic part of our lives, time, how that has come into life? How?
Well this book will give you a very simple, sweet, short but profound way of understanding it all. So yeaps it's been a wonderful read.
Ps it's been so great that I am reading this before my exam, wish me luck.
And before I forget I wanna give The Watchmaker and Time by Devang Kanavia a big 5 on 5 with a fluff of candy floss(my favorite candy that I never share with others) and thank you @writersmelon for this one. Sending lots of love and warm wishes to everyone.
