Reading is personal. Reviewing is for the community.

The Girl on the Train

by Paula Hawkins

I have been completely off the hook when it comes to crime thrillers. There was a time when I read Sidney sheldon back to back but that seems like ages now. So when Gazala recommended me to read a thriller to get over the reading slump I picked up my copy of ‘The Girl on the Train’ which I picked up from a second hand book store.

Saifuddin Soz

I went to Kashmir last year and fell in love with it! Who wouldn’t. I did my preparation though. I read as many books on Kashmir as I could manage. But I was still spellbound when I visited it.

DNF: The Mulberry Courtesan

by Sikeena Karmali

I did not want to DNF it all it! In fact I was excited to read A historical fiction from the court of Bahadur Shah Zafar. I tried really hard to like the book but I could not make it beyond 79 pages. The book begins with 19 years old Laale stuck in Hindu Kush with her rapist whom she just had killed. The first chapter establishes her present condition and second goes back to... continue reading→
