Review: Shadow and Bone

Shadow and Bone Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I had heard about Six of Crows and since it was set in this universe I had to get the trilogy too which I got in Gorgeous Hardcovers. And after many months I finally started and slowly finished this tale which is set in a fictional version of Russia I suppose where the land is divided into two parts with mysterious darkness which holds various monsters and then there are mutants or powered individuals of this world who are called Grisha. This book kept on twisting and turning from one scenario to another. And it was nice but could have been better, of course, that's true for almost every work. Also, the rating is in high 3.somethings :). And just as I am done with this book now I am onto the second book in the series. After all, I want to start reading 'Six of Crows' as soon as possible and hopefully this year, but if not then next year would the year I finally read Six of Crows duology.

People who don't read generally ask me my reasons for reading. Simply put I just love reading and so to that end I have made it my motto to just Keep on Reading. I love to read everything except for Self Help books but even those once in a while. I read almost all the genre but YA, Fantasy, Biographies are the most. My favorite series is, of course, Harry Potter but then there are many more books that I just adore. I have bookcases filled with books which are waiting to be read so can't stay and spend more time in this review, so remember I loved reading this and love reading more, you should also read what you love and then just Keep on Reading.

Review: my Hanuman Chalisa

my Hanuman Chalisa my Hanuman Chalisa by Devdutt Pattanaik
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Well advance warning I am not a religious person and I would even call myself an Atheist but something are just so good and part of our lives that we don't even know and we enjoy them, same is with the Hanuman Chalisa, I hadn't read it in it's entirety before but when listening to this book I knew most of the lines because osmosis. And yes all the extra information by Mr. Pattanaik was wonderful too about different types of statues of Hanuman and different versions of Hanuman and Ramayan. I liked the narration too and didn't find too many problems and I don't know why so many people are up in arms about the narration being horrible. Well maybe they are better versed in Audiobooks this would have be my 10th of 12th Audiobook off Audible. Well after all it's Hanuman Chalisa and this and it's recitation are part of life in India so just say Jai Hanuman.

Review: Blue Moon

Blue Moon Blue Moon by Lee Child
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Rating be more like 4.5 and this might be the first book which I took out of the delivery package and started reading and it was awesome. I would say one thing that first of all don't be a criminal especially in the world created by Lee Child and if you are a criminal then pray to all your ancestors that you do not cross Jack Reacher or else it wouldn't end well for you not at all. This time the action is set in an unknown city after all Child didn't want to get in trouble as this book deals with something is which is a big problem now a days. After a long time there's a body count a mile long and I love it. Go ahead and do the same, 24th book and Reacher is getting better and better.

Review: Leah on the Offbeat

Leah on the Offbeat Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Ah well The narrator did too good a job or Becky did a wonderful job and maybe the issue is that I am too old now at 37 or that I never had an angsty side even when I was a teenager. Well I didn't like Leah much at all and seeing how the book is through her perspective and she's the title character now. I am excited about this one because I liked Leah well enough in Simon and the Homosapiens Agenda. But nothing much I mean nothing much happen in the entire book and Leah was too hyper much too like she keeps on reminding everyone that she is being bitchy or acting like a dick and mean and all that. So end result was that I didn't like this Audio Book too much. But still it was good enough.

Review: Wrecking Ball

Wrecking Ball Wrecking Ball by Jeff Kinney
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the 14th yes #14 book in the series and for me this was just about there. I liked it but because they make you laugh here and there but most of the book was static only focusing on one thing at a time and then just getting stuck there. And Although I finish these books fairly quickly and honestly you can finish one of these in couple of hours easy. Ah well it was okay and I hope that next one would be funnier and better because after all there is going to be #15 for sure.

Review: The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference

The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference by Malcolm Gladwell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was third Malcolm Gladwell book I read and also similar to others which I wanted to read for a long time. This one deals with statistics and how there is a critical point in spread of anything idea or virus that can make it successful or a failure and with various examples Mr. Gladwell successfully pushed his ideas forward from Independence of USA to resurgence of a Shoe Brand to Shows for Kids to Teenage Smoking to Teenage Suicide. This one was the book which I felt can be used in Marketing studies or advertising after all it already contains many examples of the Sticky message.

I have always loved comics, and I hope that I will always love them. Even though I grew up reading local Indian comics like Raj Comics or Diamond Comics or even Manoj Comics, now's the time to catch up on the international and classic comics and Graphic novels. I am on my quest to read as many comics I can. I Love comics to bit, may comics never leave my side. I loved reading this and love reading more, you should also read what you love and then just Keep on Reading.

Review: Outliers: The Story of Success

Outliers: The Story of Success Outliers: The Story of Success by Malcolm Gladwell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Like the subtitle says it's the story of success and provides a wonderful study of successful people and hitting ground running by proving again and again that to be successful along with the person the support area and time period is as important to make sure that the person is successful. Mr. Gladwell takes example from different fields, Sports, Music, IT etc. and prove again and again that their success owed itself to lot of fortunate co-incidents and opportunities which they could utilize. In other words along with the talent these people were there at the right place on the right time and today these guys are Billionaires and superstars. Loved this wonderful book do read it and enjoy.
