When the author asked me if I would review this book, I accepted, fully aware that it was a non fiction book. It could have been the title or the summary but something made me want to read the book. I now know, that it was my calling!

I have read books like these in the past, I won't deny, but only some have the ability to make a lasting impression. The Callingis one such book by Priya Kumar, who is a motivational speaker and has authored several books. The book is described as a spiritual adventure and it does absolute justice to the title. Let us get down to the summary.

The Calling is a story about Arjun, who finds himself in an all time low in life. He is at the brink of a divorce, not to mention his challenging career. The story begins with Arjun driving to Shimla for an official ass…

Title: You Will Love Again: A Guide to Healing from Heartbreak
Author: Dr Shyam Bhat
Genre: Non-Fiction, Self help


Rating: 4/5

You Will Love Again is a self help book for those who, unfortunately, are dealing with heartbreak. The author is Dr Shyam Bhat, a psychiatrist, who has experienced heartbreaks in the past himself. 

First things first. I love the title. It radiates so much optimism that any curious mind wouldn't hesitate to pick it up. The book begins with how people feel soon after their breakup or divorce. The author takes us through various situations (with examples) of how a human mind and body behaves or reacts to such depressing feelings. The hurt that follows can be crippling for some, even to the extent of going into depression, which is sadly so common these days. The book explains how to tackle issues related to breakups, like anger, forgiveness etc. It teaches how important it is to reach out to one's true …

Title: More Than Just Friends
Author: Faraaz Kazi
Genre: Fiction, Romance


Rating: 4/5


More Than Just Friends is a book by Faraaz Kazi, best known for his debut novel- Truly Madly Deeply. Although this is my first time experience with the author, I've no doubt that his other books would be just as good as this one. 

The book is about Preeti's life journey beginning from her childhood. She has a disturbing childhood. Preeti's dad meets with an accident and is paralyzed waist down. Due to the added responsibility, Preeti is sent away to her grandmothers along with her elder brother and he becomes her confidant, the only person she trusts. A sad turn of events breaks Preeti's heart and she loses all hope and desire to be happy. And then she meets Sameer. Preeti finds friendship and love once again and couldn't have been more content. But fate decides to play with her again. She is clearly in love with Sameer, but does he feel the same…

It's my first time reading one of Randy Singer's books. False Witness is a legal suspense, although not entirely John Grisham-ish. Let's get to the plot and I'll share my thoughts after.

Clark Shealy is a bail bondsman whose wife, Jessica, is kidnapped by the Chinese mob. What they want in return from Shealy is to find an Indian mathematician named Professor Kumari and deliver him. Professor Kumari is the designer of an algorithm, which gives the user access to all kinds of sensitive information on the internet. Shealy reluctantly agrees fearing for his wife's life. He succeeds in rescuing her but the Chinese mafia are not done with them yet. After four years, Shealy and Jessica are on the run again and this time they drag the lives of a couple of law students into the mess. What f…
