Review Diaries (A Drop of You by Krishna Chhetri)

Name of the book-  A Drop of You by Krishna Chhetri.
Stars given- 4 on 5 stars
My take on the book-
Before I say anything else, this book brought back many good memories from my childhood.
It smelled amazing, don't know why but books now a days smell different- like technology.
So I adored reading this one from the first word itself cause it smelled aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamazing.
So the book starts with some all so awesome bantering, and since it's catnip to my feline soul- me likey!
Coming back to the book and the story, it almost felt like something out of someone's life story and not a fictional work in the least.
Remember reading The Last Leaf and being all confused and having questions- a few will be solved or at the least sorted here.
I for one loved it, not only cause the book smelled like my childhood or my heart melted when Diana called a drunk Karma 'Meri Jaan' this book gave me nostalgia is lots and loads.
Trust me going to go back for seconds soon.

Review Diaries (That Thing About You by Abhaidev)

Name of the book- That Thing About You by Abhaidev.
Stars given- 4 on 5 stars.
My take on the book- 
This is the second book I read based on Fate in a week and needless to say this was also very interesting.
Let's start from the beginning, I am a biiiiiiig believer in all things Fate, karma and the stars so nothing beats a good everything happens for a reason for me.
The protagonist is someone that can be put in comparison with that Ever Man that I read about during my grads.
I hated reading History of English Literature but this story kinda stuck with me.
Many of us go through things in life that at times makes us and during all the other times take us apart.
I personally feel that we should keep living our best version of life cause everything will sort itself out in the end.

Review Diaries (No Limits: The Art and Science of High Performance by Mukesh Bansal)

Name of the book - No Limits: The Art and Science of High Performance by Mukesh Bansal.
Stars given- 5 on 5 stars.
My take on the book-
Imagine a self help book that does lots and loads more than it's name suggests.
It helps you not just in the immediate future but sets you up for a life time.
Over the years I have read many a self help books that make you focus on today, then tomorrow but rarely they point out practises that will help you have a great future ahead.
The language of the book was straight forward and crisp.
I really liked it.

Review Diaries (Love Letters with Spelling Mistakes by Vaijayanthi Subramanian)

Name of the book - Love Letters with Spelling Mistakes by Vaijayanthi Subramanian.
Stars given - 4 on 5 stars.
My take on the book-
Call me silly but a good cover and a fun name makes me fall in love with a book even more.
This book came in when I was on my way out… yes peps I take human vaccays as well as bookish ones.
So in went this one along with all my other necessities.
And out it came once I was safely in my seat.
But alas! this fellow book lover saw the cover and asked if I would let her read it for a few, to which I promptly quoted my cat Zombie and it went something like "Hisssss" which translated to hooman sounds something in the range in "get lost" and "not on your life".
I finished it within the 3 and half hours it took me to reach my destination.
This was one collection of short stories that make you think, even after you are done reading it you will be forced to think about it for a long time.

Review Diaries (The Third by Amar B Singh)

Name of the book - The Third by Amar B Singh.
Stars given- 4 on 5 stars.
My take on the book-
This is the second book I am reading by the author and needless to say I am liking the language of the book just as I liked the first one.
I, myself, am someone who writes my thoughts in my diary and the book felt like reading someone's priced diary.
This small book with some heavy hitting after thought was finished in a jiffy by me.
So glad that I did, cause now I am going to again start writing in my diary full time.
