She: Ekla Cholo Re She: Ekla Cholo Re by Santosh Avvannavar
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

this book gives a bang on message to the society...

"you are what you choose to be"

The author portrayed the story very appealing way the story of kusam; where it shows what she is asked to be and from what she choose to be..

 My view :

I really enjoyed reading this book, a very Quick and fast phased book. Its pretty much an adventure based barbie story which any children between the age 6-10 would definitely love reading.


The story begins where Barbie's little sister Stacie is angry at her best friend Courtney, so then Barbie and her Best friend Teresa decides to tell her a magical story of 2 best friends Liana and Alexa who was bonded over friendship and music. One fine day they find 2 similar looking magical stones and they wish to be friends forever, the stone twinkled they never noticed that.They made chains with  the stone and they happen to go out one day when they saw an old lady Liana and Alexa helps her and in return they were asked to take any antique as a reward , then they pick up a Hand Mirror , later both of them realise that it is a speaking mirror .The adventure begins from there.

Would love to say the entire story but then, i wish to keep it SPOILER FREE , so to find out what happens after that ,  Go grab a copy of this book and boom take a Magical adventure ride  With Alexa and Liana

Me being a die hard fan of Sudeep Nagarkar , this was again a real life incident story. This book had the element of friendship,love,attraction, willpower and determination , the bonds narrated were so strong.
I gave it a 4.7/5 stars though there was nothing that i hated about the book.

Had more to add on to the review but wanted to keep it short, because i appreciate the efforts put by the author, and i would like to keep my Review spoiler free. ( if you want Spoilers ... will post it on request )

I bet this story will be loved by all because it would make you a better and stronger person all together :) 


 The story starts with two friends - Sakshi and Aditya chilling in a pub - Mia Bella, Delhi , a singer in the pub caught Aditya's eye , he figured out that there's some pain inside him and they asked Anuj the Manager of the pub to convince him to have a conversation with them.

The story is narrated how the band was formed Yuvi , Anamika, Vikranth , how their bond of friendship developed with promises to make their Band popular , and soon Anamika gets into a relationship with the Rich and popular guy from the college - Anurag , vikranth sees a girl at the metro and falls for her immediately and he decides that she is the love of his life. Yuvi on the other hand has a sweet 4 year old relationship with a cute girl named Khashish, who is the only one who can handle Yuvi.

Vikranth then narrates few other things that happened Anamika and anurag's Breakup , which affected the band performance and how there was a big  fight between yuvi and anamika .Vikranth then decides to sort this out by organising a trip to Daman , and also a chance to propose to sanaya ( Anurag's Ex-Girlfriend) she was the metro girl, Sanaya then accepts his proposal and also the things between yuvi and anamika was also sorted by then, but unfortunately something terrible happens to anamika.

Their lives change from then on , a point where Bonds changed , a few bonds became stronger . While some broke forever .

A very heart warming story with a message to people out there. " Not to trust everyone blindly "

Book Review : No Time to Pause by Pavithra Ramesh

   AUTHOR  : Pavithra Ramesh
   GENRE    : Fiction, Friendship
   PAGES    :  99
   RATINGS :  4/5 Stars


I loved this book , i finished it in like within a day a very quick and interesting read.
The author pavithra has done justice to the name of the book 'no time to pause'.
The story is about a female protagonist pari, who narrates about her college life where she happens to stay away from her family - dealing with her PG, new environment, friends, college and so on.
She happens to make friends with aditi, Tanya, avi, seema etc. Showed the different conflicts that arise and how strong the bond could get with new people who are no more strangers.


No Time to Pause is a debut novel by Pavithra ramesh. It is a fictional story where the pratogonist pari happens to stay away from her family for her studies in Bangalore, she has to stay in a PG and learn how to face life without her biggest and strongest support system - her family. 

Pari is someone who travelled  to chennai, mumbai, dubai, and bangalore. Her dad is a Deputy Editor of a daily newspaper in Sharjah , her Mom is a teacher by profession.
Now pari has joined a famous Girls college in Bangalore , thus she had to stay in a PG and interact with different people. 
She becomes friend with seema, tanya, avantika, and aditi, they gel on well .Pari gets more close to aditi - aditis different philosophies impress her and they quickly bond.
If theres friendship , fights and misunderstandings are definite to happen .
So pari narrates her college life , how she was before coming to banglore, and how she is now after passing out of college become a strong and determined woman to face anything in life when.

I really loved the bond between aditi and pari , a very strong bond develops between them and that level of comfort and friendship was cute.
It clearly showed how a typical college life would be with different kinds of friends around and on happening of different situations.
I loved how aditis story was said .
I also loved the writing style was more lik casual talks (which I prefer)

It had more of aditi's story than that of the protagonist pari. I expected more of pari's story ( i loved it though).
There were few editing mistakes.

When the protagonist pari met this guy named Reyan , I expected the story might develop with pari liking this guy , and things go on from there.(It would have been cute). or something which involves fun college scenes.

I loved the book sooooo much that I wanted few more pages :( THE book ended in no time

I loved this book, i enjoyed reading it,it had lots of emotions in it, it had not only emotions like love and hatred but also emotions like sadness, shock,jealous and things like that.

I loved the character of Aryan because though he is just 15 years old he was so mature the way he speak and take decisions. I also loved the character of Manav one of vee's friend ,he was very supportive throughout proving to be a good friend at good and bad stages of life.

I hated the character of Dr.saurabh he was so wierd as he becomes informal one time,when vee message him he does not respond for days and he becomes formal again which i did not like.

I recommend this book for all those who love pets ,who likes to feel the roller coaster ride of being a single parent and face many things in life which happens too soon.

I enjoyed reading this book,i gave it a 4.5 stars the content was a little dragging in between which i did not like much... But i really liked the writting style. I like the character of Anjali, the author kept her character lively and interactive, But i did not like Shruthi as a character,i just could not relate to her character it wasnt lively..Overall a good story
i recommend this for a contemporary read
P.S : it has like just 20% of romance in it.

REVIEW: The Grownup by Gillian Flynn

TITLE: The Grownup
AUTHOR:Gillian Flynn
RATING: 4.5/5 stars

 One of the best book I ever read to be honest,absolute page turner though a quick read.

It has a curiosity raising and attention grabbing start.Every page has a surprise element ,Hats-off to the creative thinking and out of box way of writing an extra ordinary short story.She has written the story such that each moment you wonder “whats next..??”.Gillian nailed it. 
The story starts with the introduction of a young women who basically works as a receptionist for spiritual palms (running an illegal soft-core sex work in the back ).she introduce herself as a vision specialist to those women who come out there expecting a real fortune teller .

One day the young women gets a client who says he is ‘mike audley’ and he loved books he was a fan of “classic stories of the supernatural” and he recommended books to her as well like “the haunting of hill house”, “the woman in white”, since she loved reading too,they even made a private book club. She had to leave because someone else was waiting for her – ‘Susan Burke’,she has come to meet the vision specialist, they have a conversation and says there’s something wrong happening at her house .the young women asks her questions,susan has a stepson- she is asked if the problem at home is caused due to his stepson,susan pays her and leave the place.

  Four days later,susan visit the young women again asking “can things have auras.?”three days later “do you believe in evil spirits.? “and the next day.Susan says her stepson ‘Miles’ was never a sweet person and that he often troubled her and her son and they feel something’s wrong with him ,supernatural things seem to happen .The young women who does not believe in exorcism or supernatural,starts to believe in it when she feels that she’s being watched,every second in carterhook manor.

The story takes off in a breathtaking way,where we find ourselves deeply involved in reading,to know whats next out of curiosity.
