Honest & heartfelt memoir by the celebrity. Honestly I picked this audiobook cos Of the voice. Loved it.

A new kind of book for me as I am not very much familiar with Hollywood celebrities. 4🌟 #nonfiction2022 #bookspinbingo #audiobook #dream #memoir

This about the first American women team expedition to Annapurna mountain. This covers all minor details starting from fund raising till the end of summit. Gender bias, conflicts with the sherphas, both mental & physical challenges of the summit are presented in a honest way. The unpredictability of the nature, mystery surrounding the mountain made it mesmerising. Cont…

Blackink_WhitePaper Author provides us with multiple view point by referring to the journal of fellow team members. writing is slow paced, at times too quick with adrenaline rush, some time thought provoking similar to their summit.

The story is heartbreaking with strong woman character. The delicate strands of mother-daughter relationship is beautifully portrayed. This story tells us the lessons we have to learn from the history about the environmental crisis, hard times, when to stand up, when to escape and to hold on. It‘s all about the dreams, love friendship, family, heart aches struggle and hope. One of my fav reads of 2021 4.5🌟

*unpopular opinion* It was supposed to be a romantic novel with a great love story .But I couldn‘t connect to it. Story line is good but too much of time travel, too many details ( most of which are annoying to read ! ) . May be the writing style was not for me.3⭐️

Impressed with this story. I enjoyed both the story & characters, esp the dragon & Xan. I recommend this audio version as the narration is great. The voice modulation is awesome. At one point I felt there are too many diversions in the story & felt little confusing. But finally all will converge at one point. Beautiful proses & loved all the poems of swamp monster . 4🌟

I enjoyed my #audiowalk with this book. The weather was apt for this story as it begin with stormy clouds, drizzles, sunshine & a rainbow. Same way this story unfolded. At places it‘s too dark & spooky. I like how bullying is explained, when & how to seek help. MC meets a ghost & the changes that followed is unexpected. It‘s my first try with the genre. I enjoyed this book. 3.5 🌟#BFC2 #bookspinbingo #teamHendrix +15pts 6hrs #scarathlon2021

As the name suggests it‘s about a reading list with 8 books. I ve read 6 books out of the list so could relate with it. But its not necessary to read those books, still you will love it. It‘s about the role of books in the life & magic of reading. MC Mukesh , an elderly lonely person & Ayesha , a teenager with a sad, boring life help each other as they bond by books. #Heartwarming perfect for a light , comfortable, #feelgood reading.4.5⭐️

I picked this book solely because of the title as m interested in traditional medicine. It‘s a historical fiction resonating in 2 time line. story line of both past & the present intersect at one time point. Author has done a brilliant job at the plot. But the whole idea of women giving poison to the betraying men is difficult to digest. some of the conversations were dull & lengthy. interesting plot multiple POV and narration is good. 3.5⭐️

I like all the fantasy, action set in the book.I loved Amari ‘s character, better than the MC. And Inan character is my least fav. At times it was confusing. Somehow couldn‘t appreciate the love story much, at some places story was predictable. But the writing style is like watching an action movie. It was an entertaining read, with a powerful message. 3🌟. #bookspinbingo #doublespin #1 #YA #seriesread2021 #stackingtheseries
