Tanya Tania Is A Riveting Debut

Tags

, , , ,

I didn’t expect much when Tanya Tania released. Which is why I didn’t even try to get a review copy. Even after it came I thought it would be one of those romance novels that they mark as women’s fiction that has rippling muscles and maybe a frenemy or two. Oh how wrong I was. The second I heard it was about two friends who write to each other (alas a story idea of mine gone down the drain) and then something happens…..DUN DUN DUN! Thankfully I won a giveaway for this book and immediately jumped in. Continue reading

51UOGX4iXYLThe Rise Of Sivagami : Book 1 Of Bahubali – Anand Neelakanthan

Fans of the films Baahubali will be excited for this one. A while back the producer of the film and the author came together to write this series. Blessed by the sacred Gauriparvat, Mahishmathi is an empire of abundance. The powerful kingdom is flourishing under its king, who enjoys the support and loyalty of his subjects, down to his lowly slaves. But is everything really as it appears, or is the empire hiding its own dirty secret?
Orphaned at a young age and wrenched away from her foster family, Sivagami is waiting for the day she can avenge the death of her beloved father, cruelly branded a traitor. Her enemy? None other than the king of Mahishmathi. With unflinching belief in her father’s innocence, the fiery young orphan is driven to clear his name and destroy the empire of Mahishmathi against all odds.

30754981This was a very enjoyable Graphic Novel. I wouldn’t call it a memorable one but certainly enjoyable. I don’t have a child, I don’t particularly care about or want children, but my cousins do and my best friend does and this made me think about everything they tell me about having a child and chuckle.

The Book Of Indian Dogs

Do you know that there are specifically Indian dogs? I bet you assumed that there were but didn’t know what they were. Well, lets start with the Mastiff, both Himalayan and Tibetan are the same dog, just known by different names. Then the Lhasa Apso, also Indian, common in the Himalayan region and then there is a Himalayan sheep dog which is trained in a completely different way to English sheepdogs. I didn’t know any of this. Which is why I requested this book the second I heard about it. Continue reading

Diversathon Book 2 : Beasts of No Nation

Diversathon sort of saved this book for me. I was going to dump it in the “Sell/Swap” pile and be done with it because I had DNFed it two times already. Once at 25 pages I think and another at 80 pages. Both times I couldn’t get on board with the language or the main character. I didn’t particularly care about what happened to Agu and was more concerned about his sister and his mother. But being a female who related and prefers female characters I guess there’s nothing new about that. But I’m glad I stuck it out through Diversathon because I can now put this away without feeling bad. Continue reading

Name A Book with Family Goals

Weasleys

I’m going to have to steal her answer and say The Weasley family. I cannot imagine a safer space to be in and with my family being so……wide apart (in different parts of the world) I miss having huge family time. Moreover, Molly is just such awesomeness.

Big Mushy Happy Lump : Sarah Scribbles 2

cover104326-mediumEveryone has heard of, or atleast seen one of Sarah Andersen’s doodles. It’s been shared across every social media platform available and unless you’ve lived under a rock, you would have seen, read, maybe even saved one of these. I didn’t have the pleasure of reading Adulthood Is A Myth so the second I saw this was available to read on Netgalley, I scrambled to read it immediately. In fact I dropped everything else I had and started reading this. And it did not disappoint.
