My verdict :

The story revolves around the life of Budding Actors, who keep in so much of passion, life, burning Desire and lots of dreams to city of dreams, Mumbai. 

Usually we hear that millions of people go to Mumbai with packed Dreams to earn all the name and fame, achieve everything in life. 

But there are very few who actually do it, there is so much to suffer and struggle and finally get a small step to get in. And this books talks about it. 

The character Riku who comes from small city with burning DESIRE, with passion to earn all the success and make it bit on Screen  with the lead role, but everything that we wish doesn’t happen, right? Riku was done with his tries and was felling low as well as high passionate about his career and why isn’t he being selected, he has given so many auditions, and always got small roles to do. He has been sacrificing all the luxury to achieve his dreams, and he is so sure he would do it one day. 

The girl,  Arpita who is beauty with Brains, who had very Challenging and beautiful career ahead, drops everything and walks to the city of dreams, who is well aware of everything happening, who is tired of giving auditions day by day, her 201 audition speaks about how the bollywood is.

Where will Arpita lead to?

To know more, pick the interesting book now. 
I personally feel the cover of the book is attractive and beautiful, little bit of attention was need on editing, the author starts the book on usual things, but as you flip pages there are unpredictable things.

I like the part of women, who is Stubborn, beautiful, bold and who can knock out at right moment of time, no depression, no act,  nothing can stop her if she has made up her mind in something very keenly. 

Beautiful read 🙂

Review : Ashvamedha : The Game of Power

Book Name- Ashvamedha : The Game of Power

Author- Aparna Sinha

Genre- Political Thriller 

Publisher- Srishti Publications 

Pages- 214

Price- ₹195


“You have to dethrone a powerful man to become the most powerful. I was itching to defeat the single most powerful person, but there wasn’t any. I was left with only one choice — to create one.”

Little does Ashwin Jamwal know that the last twenty-five years of his life have been controlled by a master manipulator, who wanted to make him the most powerful man on earth, though for a reason! Ashwin steps up to take oath as the youngest Prime Minister of India and is unknowingly thrown into a vortex of power and authority as the entire world is threatened by a faceless enemy — Hades.

The world starts to look up to Ashwin as the savior, but he was just a pawn, reared only to be sacrificed in the end.

A story of greed, lies, deceptions, manipulations and corruption, Ashvamedha is a thriller revolving around the infamous game of power in a maddening bid to seek absolute control.


Ashvamedha is a political thriller which is penned down by Aparna Sinha. 

Sinha with her debut novel serves us a tale of power with intense character and blockbuster storyline. This book has every element which can make you feel like you’re watching a movie. 

Book Title and Cover- The Title is interesting and appropriate with the book. It gives us insight about the content. The Cover is not-attractive and could be improved. 

The Blurb is short, crisp and interesting

Language and Narration- Writing style of Aparna is easy to follow. Language is simple crisp and easy to comprehend. Narration is done well. Quotes from Yajur Veda and a poem in the book is cherry on the top.

Content and Plot- Plot of the book is fresh and gives you something new to read. Unlike many suspense thriller, this book deals with many social odds. 

Storyline is interesting and flows smoothly with twists and turns throughout the book. 

With unpredictable ending and engaging subplots, story keeps moving smoothly with good pace. However some readers can need time to get adjust with the pace and storyline but after that story flows smoothly till the end. 

Along with thriller there is love angle between our characters which is written beautifully. Friendship between Ashwin and Arun is touching and was fun to read. 


Book Title and Cover- 4/5 

Language and Narration- 4/5

Content and Plot- 3.5/5

Final Rating- 4/5

I would recommend this book to every thriller reader out there especially political thriller lovers.


Review : Rafflesia : The Banished Princess 


“Rafflesia: The Banished Princess” 
The curtains draw up. Lights are dimmed. The musical is about to begin. As the beautiful princess descends on stage, the mythical creatures from her kingdom come alive. Flickers of brilliant colours 
blaze across as mesmerizing music pulsates from one corner of the theatre to the other. A fairy tale is about to unfold… 

As young children, we often come across things that stay in our hearts forever. For Appu, it is a fairy tale about a beautiful princess. He lives with her in a world filled with the magical creatures from her kingdom until the real world beckons. A reluctant Appu steps into it as a striking young man and struggles to find his place. 

What follows is an evocative tale of love and loss, friendship and betrayal, as the story travels through the snow-peaked mountains of Arunachal to the golden deserts of Jaisalmer, the tulip gardens of 
Holland to the lush greens of Kerala. Does Appu find what he had set out for? The answer lies in Rafflesia — The Banished Princess because in her story, lay his!” 


The story revolves around the Life Of Appu, the Protagonist of the story. 

The story speaks on his life, the way it goes, just like Everyone comes into our lives, and we hope they all stay with us till end but then they leave us in mid journey of our destination. The same happens in his life as well, there are many characters who come into his life, but hardly stays till the end. 

His parents are mid class, who supports him, Appu’s behavior is very silent and he never utters anything more, although his best friend tries to talk to him, he talks everything about his life, but apparently Appu stays numb, Rahul and Appu are like Brothers from different mothers 

The story is too long, you need little time to get into it, but once you’re in, you enjoy the journey as the story in mid goes very very slow, and the writing style of the author is beautiful and impressive. 

The book cover is beautiful, but don’t go on the cover, the story speaks different from the cover. 

Over all, fine work done by the author 

Nice read. 


The lost friendship

How does it feels to look back?

Look back at your self, the way you were binding yourself in the friendship, praying it would last forever, wishing this to be eternal, how firmly I believed that the one who came in life, will remain on my side like Forever, though I learnt lessons while many walked away without word.

But still, I hoped. Still, then I was keen to make it happen till we grow old.

But, just like others, the friendship also glided away. 
And the saddest part is, I still Hope over someone, I still look someone with me down the line. I still hope we last forever.

Everything ends, heart breaks, tears flow, but Memories never fade, why?

Yet the heart aches for the Lost Friendship. Giving several chances to same person, o to break it all again? Yet Hopeless hopes!

It literally tares me apart, when I look behind. Why were I so engrossed? Why did I love so much, that in return it just hurt me. 

I wish I pretended like things didn’t hurt, I wish I pretend like things don’t bother. But then they do. 

I also smile with the Hope, that your Memories would also Fade away, like our Friendship glided away.

Review : Unns the Captivation 

The book is provided by Arudha Club in

Blurb : 

“Of course you know about the seven stages of love, but have you ever lived them?”

Atharva Rathod and Meher Qasim. 

Love birds since adolescence. Bonded by love, separated by circumstances. They part ways only to meet again. But this time, he is on a secret mission…

Are they in control of their own destiny, or it’s their destiny which is making them dance to its tunes? Only time would answer, as Atharva and Meher unwillingly and unknowingly transcend the seven stages of love. 

A quintessential tale of love and romance marked beautifully by its own rustic old school charm.

My verdict :

The story line is based on love story, that shows and indicates 7 stages, which is showed in Three sectors in the book. 

The books main characters are Atharava and Mehar, though belonged to different religion, they tend to have infatuation on each other in school, this attraction surprisingly carries for Fifteen years. 

Due to interests & bond by problems, they grow apart, he joins RAW & she shifts to Germany. 

When Atharava is on his mission, he tends to meet Mehar in Germany, the chemistry between them grows well, having the same attraction constant. 

Here are those seven stages of book, which is really interesting to read in this book : 

Hub, Unns, Ishq, Aqeedat, Ibadat, Junoon and Maut. 

To know more, explore the pages of this book. 

Slightly interesting book, syncs off in the mid of the tale, sometimes the story goes predictable and sometimes followed with twists and turns. Slight Grammatical Mistakes in the book, although The author has made efforts in making of this book

I would  to read the Romantic fiction lovers to read this.
