REVIEW :

The book reached well in time and is the continuation of the trilogy by the author.

The author focuses more on the investments in a nutshell and small packets of wisdom in list form.The tricks which are needed. Basic questions are answered with ease and simplicity. Cover is simple and
The book is more on the informative side. Lot of new terms will be learnt part art,part science. Factors affecting market, luxury, bubble and EMI. Every idea is broken in chapters which are kept crisp and to point enough to explain the terms and idea behind. Blurb is given in short. Can be used by everyone to have a better understanding. A short read which will definitely make you learn things.

This book has it’s takeaways and if you are planning to learn more about real estate and how it functions. Real estate has always been a risky business not knowing if it is right or wrong or the perfect. So many questions arise why, how, where!

Buddha On Wall-Street : Knowledge, Wisdom, Financial Moksha and Bliss by A.Venkatasubramanian

 

 

BLURB :

 

Can Money Buy Happiness?  How to Maximize your HQ (Happiness Quotient)? What is the Path to ‘Financial MOKSHA’? How to use your finances to Maximize your Potential? Why is Money like ‘Oxygen’?

BUDDHA on WALL-STREET is where western philosophies of maximizing wealth meet the eastern philosophies of moderation and maximizing happiness. This is where the United States of America meets Bhutan.

While BUDDHA on WALL-STREET is primarily a book on investments it seeks to redefine happiness from the perspective of ancient wisdom drawing on the source of true happiness.  It is materialism with contentment.

BUDDHA on WALL-STREET not only equips the reader with knowledge and wisdom to effectively maximize returns and manage one’s investments but also lays out a balanced approach to maximize one’s happiness.

In the material world there is a single pointed focus towards attaining wealthThis defeats the purpose it intends to serve, ending in misery rather than happiness. The book deals with the mechanics of how to maximize one’s Happiness Quotient (HQ).

The Book is a practical guide on how one should balance out one’s primal desires for infinite wealth with one’s HQ (Happiness Quotient). It is about securing our future with the right investments and managing our lives with the right attitude.

 

REVIEW :

Finance plays an important roles in our lives but yet we’re not so very sure of how to manage it well. We always face some trouble every now and then. This book is just the answer for it. Written in an easy language it will make things easy for you and break down terms which are important as for investments. The title is really Catchy speaking up about financial moksha what I really liked it is how the author confined finance, happiness and wisdom all weaved into one book. The book has various sections focusing on investments and happiness and how to bring about a balance in between both. The financial terms have been explained in a simple manner with personal or examples which will make it easy to understand. The things that we used to believe in for investments will be totally shattered. You will be learning and relearning so many new concepts. Rule of 72. Learning about risks how to tackle. Long term/ short term investments, business analysis, balance sheets , macro investing, mutual funds, stocks, bonds. Every new chapter begins with a quote to sum it all up. And famous sayings by different people such as Warren buffet himself is also been put up. What are the essentials when you are investing what to look up. Everything about finance and investments has been covered up beautifully by the author. I’m sure one will benefit from it. Being a non finance student this made it easier for me to understand concepts which are used in and out in our daily finances. How can one overcome and learn from finances. Go slow and try to apply all that you grasp from this book. Book has alot of quotes and tables and real life examples. Might seem a little boring but if you have interest in the subject you will definitely find it of immense use!
overall -4/5.

Review- 
Flames of Anahata is second book of Comeback Warrior Trilogy. The book consist of two stories, running side by side which are separated by time. Saranya has done well job writing both, past and present stories without confusing readers. 
 
Both the stories are given with twists and turns and one big suspense where both the stories come together to give us the unexpected climax. 
 
Writing style of Saranya is lucid and holds readers with the book. Even though the present story had nothing new to give, the close to perfect narration made me turn page by page. Story from the past in interesting. 
 
Language used in the book is simple and well edited. Book cover is beautiful and eye catching. Title has deep meaning which you will learn after reading the book. 
 
I would rate this book 4/5 stars.
Overall, Flames of Anahata is blend of in
gripping storyline and unique, intriguing plot.
 
I would recommend this book to every romantic fiction reader out there.

The 23rd Girl by Divya Ratan and Rohan Kachalia.

 

 

BLURB – Smart, Suave and confident, Rashv is a young man in his early twenties whose claim to fame has been his never say die spirit. His life lacked any excitement till one day he accidently discovers a strange connection with the number 23. He gets so obsessed with it that the number begins to influence everything he ever does. Roohi is a fiercely independent, headstrong girl who is relentlessly chasing her dreams in the corporate world before the ‘burn out’ happens. She craves for a change and takes a sabbatical from work when she happens to cross paths with Rashv who falls irrevocably in love with her. They have a whirlwind romance before Rashv realizes that she does not quite fit in his number theory. On one hand is this number which has defined his life and on the other hand is the truest love he has ever felt. Can a number run your life? Is it justified to let it run your life? Dive into Rashv’s world to find out.

My views on the book –

TITLE – Blurb gives us the information about the story of how it will be something special about the 23rd girl in Rashv’s life. And something important of the number in his life.

COVER- blue makes everything so beautiful and so is this book. with dice being in there on the cover it shows more about the chances that one takes in life.

THEMES- love.

CHARACTERS- Rashv- main lead.

PACE – medium paced.

RELATABLE – most of the paragraphs you will really relate very well to.

PAGE TURNER –  yes.

LANGUAGE – easy and flowing.

What if all of us got to know about our lucky numbers and could be all that we want to be, our lives would become really amazing and happy. here in this story rashvs story starts from his school days to how unlucky he has been throughout his life to knowing the number 23 has always been very lucky for him. The way number 23 and its importance and facts have been put up really amazed me. shows alot of research had been done. and plus the way the book has been written it does not feel it is written by two people at all. kudos to the author! the book and the typset is amazing too.

overall-4/5

You are the Best Wife: A True Love Story Paperback –by Ajay K Pandey

 

‘BLURB – You Are The Best Wife: A True Love Story’ is a story about how people find true love and comfort in dissimilarities; about how two people with absolutely different ideologies meet and fall in love.

The story revolves around Bhavna and Ajay. Bhavna loves living life for others while Ajay loves living for himself; Bhavna is more spontaneous, never planning the next move and living life with the flow. On the other hand, living life without planning a single move is almost blasphemous to Ajay. Yet, they fall in love; they get married and love changes both of them for good.

However, destiny had some other plans for this couple in love; and, midway through their happiness, Bhavna had to resign from life. But does this halt mean the end of love?

Written in frank and clear words with generous dosage of humour, ‘You Are the Best Wife’ is hailed as a true love story amidst all adversities. It is an inspiring and bittersweet tale of a youth that metamorphoses into a whole new being after being touched by love.

 

MY VIEWS –  i really loved the book being a true story, almost brought tears to my eyes. the author does an awesome job by bringing in all the emotions very raw. it is a medium paced book with a beautiful cover and title as well. makes you look at life differently. will surely teach you something when you are done with it. the typeset is brilliant. beautifully spaced.

i really loved the book.

overall – 4/5

When Karma Goes Upside Down – by Dishant Huria.

BLURB –

Karma has a wicked sense of humour.
All we can do is laugh when it’s our turn.

By day, Aarush is struggling to get admission in a reputed college for his Master’s degree; by night, he is a technical support man working in a call centre. His lady love plans the most unexpected surprise gift on their fourth love-anniversary – a break-up! In trying to accept that she is gone, he bumps into several girls and an older woman who fascinates him no end. Will she be the anchor he has been waiting for? Or is this also a part of his never-ending quest to understand love, relationships, career and friendship? Moving to a new city, finding new friends, getting beaten by the police and experimenting with life in general – he does everything.Join Aarush as he tries – by hook or by crook – to find a way into love and happiness When Karma Goes Upside Down.

 

MY VIEWS ON THE BOOK –

TITLE – as per the blurb suggest and so does the story, for you never know how life may take it turns.

COVER-  blue and graphics of 2 women and a boy – suggesting some love affair. The cover lets you know it is a love story with some twist in it.

CHARACTERS – Aarush is the male lead character in the book, Nishant is aarush’s best friend, Riddhima is aarush’s ex and Deepali is also another female important character that helps in forming the story.

WOW FACTOR – The letters to riddhima or to himself, really makes it more interesting. Also how beautifully the story to his now with his time with riddhima is portrayed together.

THEMES COVERED – love, romance, inner turmoil.

PACE – The pace is medium. you will want to finish the book in one go. just like i did.

The book starts with ridhhima breaking up with aarush. the breakup affects him really badly and he keeps going down to worst. which is made better by Deepali who is in her mid thirties and by coincidence they meet- they know they won’t have any future so they just keep being there for each other. fight and make love.

Aarush still keeps getting those pangs for riddhima again and over. He often asks her to get back. one fine day riddhima wants to come back to his life but aarush has lost all of the emotions and is not ready to feel anything anymore. So he keeps on finding what he wants. Messes up with his job as well.

well described book and a story with a twist.

overall – 4/5.

But as we say, things will get better over time. it does. he is now a writer. but has he moved on? is he better? read the book to know more.
