The Bodyguard: A Novel | Katherine Center

Now this book is a perfect, complete, unabashed romcom book. Its funny and romantic with hints of issues, the bad ex, the unrealistically handsome love interest, certain emotional issues, and the touching heartfelt ending. The thing I like about this is that the story never tries to be anything else. Anything bigger than it was supposed to be. It's a simple, absolutely light-hearted feel good book. I would pick it up for a light read.

Okay, so this book took me by complete surprise. I did not expect this and this was my first Colleen Hoover. I just jumped into this without even reading the synopsis and boy, was I surprised. But the only thing, after finishing I read up some reviews who said that they found it really creepy and unsettling, well yes, it's slightly distrubing maybe, but it didn't like haunt me. It has a solid story and is a one sit read for sure.

Good book. A subversion of usual small town romance troupe. I do like how Henry depicted the city and the small town and the magic of both the places. It's true people could belong to different people and places at the same time. Overall it left me feeling warm.

Finally completed the series. Wasn't expecting this but god. It's a lot to take in. I just really hope Ravi and Pip get their own story because really, they truly deserve a normal. Otherwise fantastic series. Although yes, I do like the first two books better. This one just was a lot. It's good. But it also really made me sad.

Oh god, this series has reawakened the monster in me that devours a book in a day. I am so obsessed with these books and after the first book, this really didn't disappoint. It was everything and more than I expected. Such a quick fast paced gripping read. I literally felt the anxiety Pip felt throughout. I didn't even realise that the book was actually in third person all this time and only noticed it at the end. Was literally fused with Pip.

Interesting. Quirky. Engrossing. Refreshing. Women taken seriously, so that at least is relatable although I do not enjoy chemistry at all. But this book made me like chemistry a tad bit. Funny but also deals with really triggering subjects. It's well written. Would definitely say it's worth a read.

I loved this book so much: from the journey that Esme has through words, both respected and remembered to the words discarded, forgotten, words of women, disregarded. It's a story of women and of war, of history and of the making of the dictionary from a much forgotten perspective, which is that of a woman. I loved how the historical characters were portrayed in this book so beautifully blended with the fictional. Definitely a book worth reading.

Funny, witty and easy predictable read. I enjoyed characters so much and I love how the author combines both fake marriage and enemies to lovers troupe. There's not a lot to say about this book except it's a really good read when you are craving a good romance, and just wanna curl up with a good story and plot. Would definitely recommend for a light read.

Although people might feel it's just a John Green ripoff, the book did make me laugh and feel for the characters. Although, yes the author did try to make the characters really quirky and maybe went a little overboard there yet the entire story is strangely endearing in a way and I know from personal experience the pain of heartbreak described is pretty accurate. So that was something I liked. It's pretty enjoyable. It has a movie too not as good.

Easy to read. I picked the book yesterday evening and it was just a smooth read, thought not a smooth ride. I have watched the movie before but nothing prepared me for the emotions I felt when I read the book. Was in my tbr list since I was a teenager, could finally read it at 23. And the feeling of the love they shared, Landon and Jamie is still fresh and beautiful. I am glad I finally picked this up.

This book is about a lot of things: racism, good intentions and the consequences of it, motherhood and it's various interpretations, familial bond: who are family? Is it just blood? And of course the most important one: the profession of a caregiver, a nurse and the responsibility that comes with it. What drew me is the character of Civil whose thoughts about the world were relatable. Its a deeply moving story that still remains undeterred in mind

2021 was the roughest year I have probably ever experienced in the little amount of time I have lived. I couldn't read a single thing throughout the year. And the end of the year was disastrous. But I am here stronger and still fighting exactly like how Nina in this book is drawn. She finds her fire at the end and that's the thing about fire, we all rise from the ashes. A good book with great characters. I enjoyed reading it. 4/5

"They had an ordinary life, full of ordinary things—if love can ever be called that."

I am so emotionally invested in the characters. God. I have read a fantasy series, especially a series book after ages. Literally years and I don't regret choosing this series because God, the characters, all of them are just so good. They all have faults, have desires and darkness and all of them are so human. I loved reading this and definitely recommend it.

The second part of my very cherished distraction. Bardugo did not disappoint once again and the characters, the development of the plot and prose was fluid, transporting me to a world filled with adrenaline and magic and elements that I can get lost in which I was. Again. Can't wait to read the final of the Grishaverse series. It's only because of this that I have picked up reading again and feel good about my days. So yaaay. Means much to me.

Times have been so tough and this year, this month so far has been hardest for me. I couldn't even read this whole year. This is the first book I read after a long long time and the story, the characters and the adaptation too were the perfect escape for me. Where better to escape to than in a fantasy world, right? The book was interesting, engrossing didn't let me think of anything else. I was lost in it and loved it throughout.

Even though 'The Hunting Party' was slightly disappointing, this book marvellous in its engagement of plot, final climax, revelation of the complexities and also in it's very technique of story telling was absolutely fantastic. It's an incredibly interesting page turner, just the right story you need to read to get out of your reading slump, and it's not to long or dragging. I loved it especially because of the twisty storyline and the characters.

Gripping, captivating and heavily twisted this tale of two sisters is both kind of sad and horrific but a good read in case you are in the mood for thrillers. Though the writing itself isn't that gorgeous, the plot comes to fill up the gaps for this book. It keeps you engrossed for quite a while. The characters were all kind of twisted, especially the twins. Overall a good read.

Although the premise and the gorgeous cover of this book drew me to it, the story couldn't hold my attention for too long. What I thought would be a slow eventual breathtaking revelation of one's identity with ones culture and also the association with a new culture, was just another common clichéd romcom that wasn't that enjoyable or original in any way. The writing was too forced and the characters weren't well thought out though it's humorous.

There are no words surmountable enough to describe this experience of this book. I cannot ever compare it with anything I have read before and anything I read after this shall too never come close to what this was, of that I am sure. I have felt fear, sorrow, grief, love, loss, joy through every page, every word written. Yanagihara's prose is mesmerising, transcendental and painful. I loved the characters so much, I could cry. Unforgettable.

Words would fail what this book made me feel. The immense sadness and grief, of Kavita, of Osita, and of Vivek himself, of not being able to express his inner self was expressed with beauty and depth. The entire story is made of emotions, of mournings but also made of love between various characters, the friendships, the bonds, depicted with such empathy, it's hard not to be moved by such a novel. This is definitely a masterful work. #botm

This book made me feel angry, helpless, hopeful and bitter at the same time. Two rapes, twenty five years apart, but the consequences of it still wreak havoc in the minds of the victims involved. Rachel, the influential podcaster finds herself in the town of Neopolis, trying to get to the truth of these two heinous crimes that destroyed many lives. It's a disturbing but a gripping thriller, not shy of the pain and hurt that such crimes cause.#botm

This is a predictable story, nothing too bland or brilliant but it's entertaining as it takes you to the journey of two twin sisters, exactly identical yet so different to each other. Both find love and discover themselves and their passions through the course of the novel. It's a light read and is perfect if you are looking for some Victorian romance with twin drama and amusing plot which ultimately leads to a happy ending.

I am in for some romance these days and this was my first read of my list. This book is just a fantastic, cutesy kind of story which also teaches the importance of voting and how it affects the lives of so many many people. This is such an important topic and it being incorporated into a story like this made it feel real, like the characters could be us, anyone we know, real people who are passionate and headstrong and fall in love for it.

This book surprised me the most. I felt that it would be only a memoir on maybe a particular topic, emphasising on medicine but boy, this was a whole different ride. This book goes beyond everything to talk about so many relevant issues, about healing not only through medicine but internally, how to forgive and let go and continue. This book was such a wonder to read. Dr Harper is not only a great doctor but also a very kind person. Loved it.#BOTM

This is one scary thriller, with it's beaten down towns, gruesome murders and haunting twists. This book will make you afraid and make you question between what is real and what isn't, whom to believe and whom to not. The fast paced narrative going back and forth from present to past always held my interest and never made it full to read. The concept of lucid dreaming, spooky and haunting is very aptly used here. Was worth the time. #BOTM

Though the premise of this story was intriguing and that is what drew me too it in the first place, I really hated the way the characters are just stereotyped and unidimensional. The first few chapters were bearable but I can't go any longer with this. The author is a good writer but the prose is constructed to make you feel like this is a heartwarming book instead of actually feeling it. Filled with clichés instead of an authentic storyline.

Well this book is Gothic Horror and has all the elements, creaking floorboards, grotesque images and sounds, a house dilapidated and haunted, family secrets, dark hallways, ominous smiles, glances, symbols, and an acute sense of haunting. It opens up slow, but the plotline is such that you won't be able to stop reading. The author creates a deep sense of mystery with the characters and the surrounding. This was definitely worth it. #BOTM

This book, with the cover and the name of it misled me to think it's just romance. But this is so much more. It deals with serious topics like depression, sexual assault, body issues with perfect balance of humour, romance and cathartic endings. It was a wonderful read, and I never felt bored while reading this. Avery is relatable to a great extent, I felt all she's been through, I too have experienced at some point in my life. A perfect romcom.

This book is a sweet, straightforward and honest picture of people who suffer because of bad choices, or life's unfair circumstances. The way it expresses the different stories of homeless people, and tells of their pain is raw, beautiful and brilliant. It moves you so subtly and so quietly you wouldn't even notice when you start to cry. Can't recommend it enough. I grasped on to every page and every word, especially the poems of Tiny and Nola.

This is a story of perception and understanding of a single woman through nine people who have known her deeply and intimately and perhaps even loved her at some point in their lives.

A girl who loves origami, art and culture but somehow remains a "you" that they address. I loved the easy prose and the beauty of this book.

Bond's every story is tinged with nostalgic scenic beauty of Dehra and the mountains, filled with dark woods you get lost in.

This story being a children's story is beautiful in a simple, subtle way that just warms your day. A blue umbrella of a little girl becomes the subject of envy and the story goes from there.

It's been ages since I read an Agatha Christie novel. After reading this one, I conclude that I terribly and definitely missed it. Led by the very famous and must I say my favourite detective of all Christie's sleuths, Poirot once again shows the brilliance of his grey cells. It's bit different from the usual as the author says in her foreward, this novel focuses more on the psychological aspect of murder. Also if you know bridge, this is for you.

Well, when it comes to this book I have a lot to say. It's a wonderful book, and a marvelous portrayal of the epic The Ramayana. The characters in the epic are magnificent, of larger than life attitude and turning them into such relatable, familiar characters with their own quirks and faults and peculiarities. I could understand more what the epic is all about, why the characters choose what they choose. It's an incredible insight into mythology.

This book with its complexity, it's undersurface meanings, the unraveling of the characters psyche is really commendable but the only reason I give a so-so is because it was really hard for me to read not because it has grotesque images which I am okay with but the way it shows the protagonist who was not given a point of view of her own descents into a state so bizarre yet something so incredibly familiar was something that really unsettled me.

This book is incredibly hard to read, the story so raw but so real of a world where a woman is shamed for who she is, where mothers hate themselves for hating their daughters, a world with the word "choice" alien to them. It's tale of mothers and daughters and how the toxic cycle destroys something so invaluable. Rum did an incredible work in portraying the different characters and a culture that is hard on its women the most. A must read for sure

Before I start can I please scream that this ended me. I loved it to bits. Every character was so well drawn that they aren't just names in my head anymore.

The story is heart breaking yet so beautifully sketched. It makes you want to know more. This one is for heroes, gods and lovers.

This book is a perfect quick read though it lacks the finesse of narration I quite prefer in my books. The plot is well made but the characters were really stock and unidimensional. The author did a good work about hiding the identity of the victim which is quite unusual in murder mysteries but it does become predictable at the end. The ending though is quite a twist but had a lot of unnecessary bits. It is a fast read though with short chapters.

MY DARK VANESSA. | KATE ELIZABETH. RUSSELL

This book can make you very uncomfortable, angry, frustrated at the characters and give you a better insight in the psychology of an adolescent. The book deals with abuse that happened to Vanessa as a child and how much it affected her through out her life even after she becomes an adult. Yet she doesn't realize her abuse was in fact abuse. As "Lolita" was written from the perspective of Humbert, this book is of Dolores. Difficult but impactful.
