I Am the Messenger | Markus Zusak

This book had a very perfect start and a good enough ending! The word building was great and the narration was amazing. The premise was pretty interesting and I was very much intrigued to follow the lead throughout his journey with the cards and clues but somehow in the middle of the story, I felt the pace slow down and it took a great deal of patience from me to complete the book. The author is still my fav

The Complete Persepolis | Marjane Satrapi
post image
Pickpick

What I loved most was the fact that the author has dealt about sensitive topics in a lighter tone.It talks about Satrapi‘s childhood and her growth into adult life as she survives through islamic revolution in Iran in the 1980s,political issues and the differences it creates in public life .. everything that could have been a vague topic for me in a newspaper is told in a lively manner and keeps the reader hooked till the last word!Loved it🎈❤️

Dark Matter | Blake Crouch

I totally loved the narration and the plot!!
The way alternate existences of a single person can mess up with one‘s reality is such an astounding imagination and its well pulled out by the author in the #darkmatter
I wish I could understand what helped every instance of the protoganist‘s existence not collapse when they meet each other. I enjoyed the read on the whole. Complete Review is up on my blog https://ovicandid.wordpress.com/

Hot Milk | Deborah Levy

It was a depressing kind of read for me. I am totally in love with the narration and chracterization. I found many places where we had to dive in to find the actual intended meaning. It was a different type of read which I am not able to properly classify. I am neither happy nor upset that I picked it up! The reader has to be attentive to get the essence of it⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Tbh, I am not quite happy about reading this book. Or maybe I should put it this way. I am happy about the narration but not the subject.
The fact that bully and betrayal at minor levels could push a person to suicide is not sinking in me well. Giving up is no heroism and I do not appreciate glorifying it in any way.

✨ A plain narration about closed characters
✨ Its a pretty quick read and the writing is really good
✨ I am not happy with the characters though. I wish they could open up more and be more matured and have a better life. All I could do was sympathise when I finished it
✨ Recommended to those who like exploring human emotions and deep inner thoughts

✨Okay-ish read
✨Uh, this was definitely a different story. It did take me till the last without any effort, but somehow I was not interested in the characters.
✨This is about a middle aged woman who is recollecting her days with a hippy type of group during her teen summer time. We read the causes, effects and aftermath of her relationship with the counterculture group.

Another book thats not listed in Litsy☹️, The Heroine and other stories! I totally loved the book and its bold characters. Its a collection of short stories revolving mostly around common people, women most of all and the social pressures they face. Feminism of old times, whats not to love.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. Complete Review in

⭐️⭐️⭐️This one is a brilliant debut by Rebecca Schiff. The Bed Moved is a collection of short stories which lays truth that we dare-not-accept, in front of us, bare and uncovered. It was definitely not a page turner, but I would call it a good read filled with fun and sharp ends. Complete review in https://ovicandid.wordpress.com/2017/10/06/the-bed-moved-book-review/

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I am totally in love with Ove❤️. A story that made me laugh and cry at the same time. Its funny, witty and grief stricken. It also dwells on some of our major day to day issues such as 'not doing the right thing.' With a simple narration, the author steals our mind and heart. A must read for all I would say!

Idaho | Emily Ruskovich

Idaho is cold and gripping. The characters are deep and portray intense emotions. This book is the first which kept me going not because of the plotline but the writing.The words flow like a classic poem and keep us guessing till the end. The narration mislead me to a notion that mysteries will unfold themselves by end but they dint. With a simple plotline and few loose ends untied, this book managed to interest me simply with its writing⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

"When you play a Game of Thrones, you win or you die!!!"
As always, this book gave me a better understanding of the plot and its undeniably great characters than the series.? I loved the illustrations, which I must not forget to say?. Wondering if I should go ahead with the rest of the series now, or should I wait till GRRMartin completes the remaining ones. Would be hard for me to wait for a longer period?

When he opened the door, the light from within threw his shadow clear across the yard, and for just a moment Tyrion Lannister stood tall as a king. #TyrionAwesomeness #Jon #GoT #FavQuotes

I was glad with its intriguing start. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the pace pick up as the story progressed. There were few interesting twists and turns but that was not enough to keep me hooked. It definitely has a different storyline. Just that I dint find it compelling🌟🌟🌟
