Review Diaries (Love, Swipe, Blackmail by Nitish Bhushan)

Name of the book- Love, Swipe, Blackmail
Nitish Bhushan.
Stars given - 5 on 5 stars.
My take on the book-
This is a book that's is an absolute delight for anyone who like shock factors with their stories.
The first one comes in the form of the title, it makes one stand and take notice.
The second one comes in the form of the first chapter in the book, it starts at chapter 35.
I for one thought I had the half book for a second and then saw it was fast forward and then back and forth.
In the age of social networking and online dating this book is a good wake up call.
I like the book for not only the story but also for the straight forward way the idea was dealt with.
Many times in thrillers a few characters get side lined but here you get the proper picture of the characters you are dealt with.
Overall it was a good read for me.
Quick question- Mountains or Beaches, spring rolls or momo, kababs or Curry.

Review Diaries (Charioteer Creatures in Mind by Abhishek Mishra.)

Name of the book - Charioteer Creatures in Mind by Abhishek Mishra.
Stars given - 5 on 5 stars.
My take on the book-
24 hours power cut and with only some 29 % of battery I started this book. Yeah I am mad and I know it.
This book had a lot of aha moment for me, cause I Manali Dey adore a few things barring thriller and romances and this is psychological thrillers that make you believe in conspiracy theories.
Well if not believe then at least take note of them when next time you hear someone spouting something in crazed lines.
I'm the middle of the book I got a warning of low battery and used my laptop to charge my phone and finish this one.
Coming back to the book that story follows the journey of a protagonist who finds bits and pieces of information about experiments going on. You might think that I along with the protagonist am against the betterment of science but that's not the case, these bad peps are experimenting on human beings… ouch! I know.
The language of the book is simple and ever flowing and full of punch that made me forget (well almost) my power cut woes.
Ps Eid Mubarak to everyone.
Sending love everyone's way.

Review Diaries (DIANA THE VOICE OF CHANGE: Revelations About Diana's Life PrinciplesSTEWART PEARCE)

Name of the book - DIANA THE VOICE OF CHANGE: Revelations About Diana's Life Principles
Stars given - 4 on 5 stars.
My take on the book-
Growing up, I never wanted to be a princess but a queen, very graceful yet charismatic.
Yes, I did wanna be her, so no points for guessing that I would choose to read this one as soon as I found out about it from a very dear friend.
I was seven years old when I saw one of the most grand walks, but little did I know it was actually a final procession.
Now coming back to the book, it talks about everything ones wants to know or already does know about one the most talked about princess of all times. I don't know about you but I always imagined a Queen to be like her, follower of traditions yet blazing her own path as well.
It is said that she broke the royal protocol and chose to stay with her son in the hospital, rather than follow the rules and leave about checking up on him. She participated in her son's school activities and even chose to run in the race with the other mothers. Unlike all the fiction shows we have seen, where in order for the greater good and also to hide embarrassment of the family women chose to stay with an unfaithful husband rather than divorce him but that isn't what she chose to do. She didn't go for the easy way and enjoy the life of luxury but opted to go for love.
There are very few people in the world I admire as much as I adore her. The book is written in very simple language and the style is very lucid. Essentially in three chapters it's talked about a lot of points, even though a few of the things I heard in the book were something that I didn't hear before.
Quick question- Shout out to all the real life hero Women, in my life and yours.

Review Diaries (My Ramyeon GirlNethra A)

Name of the book - My Ramyeon Girl
Nethra A.
Stars given - 5 on 5 stars and a hug to whoever needs it.
My take on the book-
Sooo full disclosure, I started reading the book after seeing the cover, I mean look at it, need I say more?
Me, the ever hungry kid whose favorite color is red, started reading this gem with a bowl of instant noodles for company.
It's a very straight forward story, a story that can be anyone or any man's story. We all have people in our lives whom we adore and will have their back no matter what. Also we live in a society where, like a bee hive a lot of people act like drones, in other words follow rules mindlessly. It works like a dream team in the bee hive situation but in the human world, judging people just cause they might not follow a certain straight path or rather the conventional path.
I personally loved reading this one, cays I even after my noodles were finished, I still kept on reading and my heart did a happy little skip and jump at the very end.
*Takes a deep breath*
Am I the only one or can you too smell the cooked noodle in the air?
