LETTERS IN THE RAIN

Standard

BLURB:

Quite early in his life, Aman had been labelled a ‘weirdo’. His side-parted, oil soaked hair and gawky physique made him the butt of jokes among his peers. There is nothing spectacular in his life—he studies all day, has never had an interaction with a girl that lasted more than five minutes, and scribbles his inner musings into his best friend, a personal diary.

Deep down, however, the guilt of being considered a social killjoy by the society starts to have a negative impact on him.

When forced out of his solitary shell into the action-infused warehouse that is ‘college’, Aman’s life takes a drastic U-Turn. Owing to a Chemistry project, he is forced to partner up with Kiara—a cheerful, carefree soul who tucks away her dark, brooding past upon arriving in Manipal.

What follows is a series of awkward encounters and quirky adventures; ones that throw them in the deep end and make them face their worst fears.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS:

Anubhav Shrivastava completed a degree in Engineering before the writing bug struck him. His first book – One Last Time was released when he was twenty-three years old and was an instant bestseller. He is an active blogger and is enthusiastic about movies, fitness and good food.He has previously been invited as a speaker at various literature fests and colleges like BITS Pilani, ISB Hyderabad, Cambridge, IIT Kanpur, etc.

Ananya Roy is a second year student at Manipal Institute of Technology, Manipal. Hailing from Pune, she’s accustomed to lovely people and lovely weather.Intensively poetic and inherently clumsy, she strives to make the world a happier and more beautiful place to live in.

MY REVIEW :

“Letters In The Rain” is the second book by Anubhav Srivastava that I read. The only change this one had that it was a co-authored book. Honestly the author managed to impress me both the time.
The blurb of the book had madr it quite interesting and it will force the readers to turn the pages.The cover of the book could have been designed more better.

The book consists of two main characters Aman and Kiara. College Days always add many beautiful as well as bitter memories in everyone’s life. The same happened in Aman’s life as well. Always a school topper and talking less will people was what school days Aman used to be. He continued the same personality in initial days of college too but then with the passing of days they was a vast change in his personality. One could relate with many parts of the book and I bet many readers would relate to the whole story of the book.
In short, this book proved to be a perfect read for me. The less characterization gave more perfection to the story. The language of the book was quite simple to understand.Both the authors had worked great and done a marvellous job. Although, I has expected a different ending but still I loved reading each page. I would recommend this book to everyone who is reading this review.

EVION : MY SELFLESS FRIEND

Standard

Living a healthy life is a necessity for every human being in today’s time. The reason behind is if a person does not take proper care of his/her body they will suffer from several diseases. Unhealthy lifestyle does not damages one part but whole body suffers. That is why, it is always suggested by doctors to have a balanced diet. Each vegetable is important for human body. Among all the proteins and vitamins, Vitamin E is often neglected by many people. People neglect it because of lack of knowledge. Vitamin E is as much important source necessary for body and most importantly for the hairs and skin. A human body should consume 27 mg per day Vitamin E. There are various sources to add Vitamin E in your daily life. Almonds are one of the best sources to get Vitamin E. Apart from Almonds ; Spinach, Pinenuts, Avocado, Broccoli, Papaya and Olives are other food items that are highly rich in Vitamin E. Several diseases such as chest pains,blood pressure can be prevented if proper amount of Vitamin E is consumed everyday. Although I am very well aware of the fact that consuming Vitamin E is necessary and even I know all the various sources through which we get it. Still being a lazy person I started hunting for oil and moisturizer that had Vitamin E in it. From that day to present day taking Vitamin E became a daily routine of my life. No doubt, they were good to for skin and hair but then they were costly. Right at that moment, I was searching another means of getting Vitamin E and then I came to know about ‘Evion Supplements’ . This brought the ray of happiness back to my life. It has been three years since I am using #Evion. Every week one packet is consumed and at time two packets too. Rather than swallowing the tablet with water I started using other methods. I chose to apply Vitamin E directly on the needed areas. Whenever I oil my hair, I cut two capsules of Evion and extract the oil from it. Mix it with my preferred Coconut Oil and Olive Oil and then apply on my hair. This has surely reduced my hair fall and have added growth and volume to my hair. Another amazing usage of Evion I did is whenever I apply Aloe – Vera Gel on my face I mix it with Evion, Vitamin E capsules. These small tricks proved to be great source of energy for my skin. There is a good change in my skin. The problem of acne has reduced much and even skin glows. Thank you #Evion for being my true selfless friend. This post is a part of http://www.evion.co.in/

HACKLYF

Standard

BLURB :

Hacklyf is an honest attempt to help people who want to live an exceptional life but is clueless amidst all the chaos. It`s an unchallenged fact that “Motivation never lasts”, and that is where this book will come in handy. It will provide you with continuous motivation through simple reasoning. A mélange of stories inspired by real-life events and short write-ups which will leave you inspired. There are plenty of activities dispersed throughout the book to help you grasp the ideologies and methodologies better. The writing is simple, crisp and enjoyable even for those who aren’t an avid reader. Unveil it and let it transform you.

MY REVIEW :
There are few books whose cover is so attractive that you are tempted to look inside the book. Adding cherry to the cake is the blurb of ‘Hacklyf’. The word ‘motivation’ encouraged me to read this book. Before turning to the main pages, I read “the book is dedicated to” section . That small dedication part by the author brought a big smile on my face.
The book contained twenty nine chapters within it. The best part was while reading few chapters as a reader I could connect it well. The quotes at the end of each chapter is another great section that I loved. This book teaches us how to live life. This is not the first self-help book I am reading but no doubt, this book taught me many new valuable lessons for life.
Overall, it was a short yet interesting read. The language used by the author is simple to understand. I would recommend this book to everyone because it won’t bore you and once you start reading you will get so much engrossed within those pages that you won’t know when the book ended.

RIVER RULE

Standard

The book is provided by <a href=”https://www.facebook.com/arudhaclub ”> Arudha Club</a> inexchange for a genuine review.

BLURB :

The jungle is closing in.
First it sends a welcoming party of parakeets.
Next, a garland of disembodied chicken parts.
Finally the tribesmen and their spears arrive demanding human trades of Avi and Una, the property developer’s firstborn grandchildren.
Twice before, the jungle tried to take Una when she took risks.
Twice Avi foiled their attempts.
This time he’s not there — yet she can feel him somewhere near.

River Rule is a dark, urban fantasy, which pivots precariously on the friendship between a boy and girl from different cultural
backgrounds. It deals with deceit and treachery, but it shows that, even when familial unconditional love is withdrawn, strength and kindness can be found elsewhere – even in a jungle.

MY REVIEW:

River Rule is a different kind of Book from all other books available in the market. Starting with the cover it has been designed amazingly. The blurb of the book just added the cherry to the cake. The blurb had that full energy to force one to turn the pages as soon as possible. The author chose a totally different concept. She very well knew how to maintain the interest of the readers. The starting of the book with accident made me a bit sad. But then after a few pages, the eyes remained opened and totally glued to each line of the book. The book holds the story of Una and Avi. It is not a just random story of friendship but has many secrets within each chapter. Never at a single point did I feel a bit bored with the book. The author has used very simple language. This book should be read by every age group. Overall, I completely enjoyed this beautiful book and unique friendship of Una and Avi.

ICEBERGS IN PARADISE

Standard

The book is provided by <a href=”https://www.facebook.com/arudhaclub ”> Arudha Club</a> inexchange for a genuine review.

BLURB :

There is a relationship between the eye contacts we make and the perceptions that we create in our heads, a relationship between the sound of another’s voice and the emotions that we feel in our hearts, a relationship between our movements in space all around us and the magnetic pulls we can create between others and ourselves. All of these things (and more) make up the magic of every ordinary day and if we are able to live in this magic, to feel and to dwell in it, we will find ourselves living with magic every day. These are the white spaces in life, the spaces in between the written lines, the cracks in which the sunlight filters into. Some of us swim in the overflowing of the wine glass of life, we stand and blink our eyes in the sunlight reaching unseen places, we know where to find the white spaces, we live in magic.
Icebergs in Paradise is a journey that will make you travel the entire world of emotions – starting it from joy to sadness, love to pain, fear to cheer and anger to tranquility. “

MY REVIEW :

“Icebergs in Paradise” is a collection of poems. The cover of the book completely matches with the title of the book. Among all the poems, there are few poems which force you to re-read them. The poet has maintained the balance of using words. Some are easy and for someone need to look up the dictionary. Some of the poems are quite long. The poem’ Secrets’ is one of the poems I liked the most. There are few lines in the poems which I loved a lot. I agree with the poet’s statement, “Between the head and heart, there’s a battle every day.” With some poems, I could connect well. There are some poems which were difficult to understand. “Sweet Wish” is another poem of which I loved each line. There are other two poems which I enjoyed reading i.e “Untold Emotions” and “To The Boy Whom I Adore.” The only thing I would like to suggest the poet is that he could have written short poems. Overall, each poem had its own meaning and it was a wonderful read.

MY REVIEW :

The Blue Jinx by Nisha Thakur is an interesting tale. I enjoyed reading this book a lot. The story started all over from a different point and with unlimited twists and turns; the story took a totally different turn. The blurb of the novel itself is gripping. The cover of the book is perfectly matching with the title and theme of the book. After reading the whole if one notices the cover once again, it feels that cover is saying it everything. Nikhil is a young boy who started his little startup of interior designing. He got one of his projects in Nashik and fate played its game. He had to renovate Mr. Hemant house.

He then found Shanipriya’s death reports and told the truth to Samara; Mr. Hemant daughter. There were mixtures of incidents happening in this novel. I got to know the importance of The Blue jinx. The writing style of the novel is simple and it all easy to understand. Overall, it is an engrossing one time read.
