To find a way out she enrols in a postgraduate course in travel and tourism.

Eric recognises her talent and inspires her to write a novel as a means to be famous and thus earn freedom from her dad’s castle. The Aravalli Princess is a saga of a budding writer , adventure , ambition and friendship.

REVIEW :

Aravalli princess is a heartfelt book giving a personal touch by the author of it being somewhat of the story a part of her struggle as well. The cover is really colourful and goes along well. The cover reminds me of Sudha Murthy’s book covers. The story follows a simple and very relatable plot where the lead needs to explore alot about herself and how much potential she has. The way every sentence has been crafted is really commendable. Being from a family which has restrictions the story is relatable. The story keeps you gripped. Overall a good read.

Life is a Treasure Hunt by Priti.

Life is a Treasure Hunt by [Priti]

 

BLURB :

It is totally Spiritual concept which gives an understanding about why we are born and what best we can do with our life to do good karmas and what all factors we can consider so that we develop a pure quality Soul by understanding the concept of true and real Conscious.

 

REVIEW.

Life is a treasure hunt consists of 19 chapters and a total surrender where it has been summarised with what to do in order to get back balance in life.
The initial chapters focus on some aspects of yoga, chakras, happiness and Karma’s.

Some chants have also been given in the book as well which can help to gain certain peace of mind.
The cover is really simple I guess something else could have been worked upon it.
The various stages of yoga have also been mentioned. So the thing is what I absolutely loved is the simple language where things have been explained well. The initial chapters deal with having to believe in a higher power and how does karma and balance work.
Attachments in life and all that we do. The book is really a short read and you will most definitely learn what to apply in your life and make the most out of this book

Overall 3.5/5

1) When did you start writing?

Ans : I was a very curious kid on my childhood. I used to experiment the things carefully & observed my surroundings with great patience. It was about 4 years ago when I started scribbling down my thoughts on my diary, eventually I found an app “Mirakee” followed by “YourQuote” which enhanced my writing skills a lot . Day by day, my knack for words & verses increased & writing turned into my passion. Hence, this passion transformed into a very important part of my life.

I Also Slept With Rashmi Verma by Love Thon

I Also Slept With Rashmi Verma by [Thon, Love]

BOOK BLURB :

I Also Slept With Rashmi Verma is a college campus story with a central love interest forming the backbone of the book where the author loves the lead protagonist Rashmi Verma and tries unsuccessfully to have sex with her only to succeed right at the end. She, in turn, sleeps with all his friends and denies him all the time. This central theme of erotic love forms the backbone of campus life with college festivals, group fights, pot smoking, chaddi grabbing and stealing of examination papers. You will meet quirky characters like Peanut John, Raizada, Ani Bahal and Mama Molester. Come get laid this winter. She is waiting – our very own Rashmi Verma. It is going to be one f*** of a read.

 

REVIEW :

The book has two parts one which deals with alot of important issues and one where there’s alot about college life. The cover is beautiful trying to show the power in women, the different shades of emotions and what not.

The title I didn’t like it much could have been something else. The book seemed like a drag at some places where the friend is trying to sleep with her.

The last few pages really does hit you alot with the emotions and pain Rashmi might have gone through.
For me the second half of the book was good

Half of the book is also written in hinglish which I didn’t like much.
To sum it up good read for one time.

The narration could have been better

Overall -4/5
