Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier

  Reading this book took me back to the world of Jane Eyre again. Heroine from a reduced background, trying to make ends meet, comes across the mysterious yet appealing hero. The key attraction of the book to me was the story play. It’s flow from present to past and some intermingling of both in…

A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks

    Definitely a 5* book for me! Well, to begin with I like reading stories with mature individuals and am not into reading young adult fiction at all because for some reason it gives me the creeps, I don’t know why! It is only on the recommendation of my dearest friend Anne that I…

The Toll-Gate by Georgette Heyer

The Toll Gate was an interesting read and my rating is hovering somewhere between 3.75* to 4* for this Georgette Heyer work, the reasons for which I shall elaborate further in my review below. The best feature of this book for me is it’s outstanding characterisation, which is typical Heyer, with an incredulous hero, equally…

The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks

  Well, nothing much to say about the book. Its fine. Though I expected something better since I took it after A Walk to Remember, which was amazing. This one is not as squeaky clean as A Walk to Remember and it is based more on the believes in superstitions and lucky charms, something hard…

Storm & Silence by Robert Thier

This is an honest review at request of the author in exchange for a free copy of the book. ⚠⚠⚠CAUTION: SPOILERS AHEAD⚠⚠⚠ Well I am a huge historical fiction lover and have an exasperating requirement of perfect period details. So when I started reading Storm and Silence I was not getting the click since the…

The Professor by Charlotte Bronte

  3.85* out of 5 to The Professor By Charlotte Bronte. Well, to begin with I took up this book solely for the fact that it was a Charlotte Bronte work and having read Jane Eyre I had much higher expectations from The Professor as well. I say had because sadly it was not on…

Arabella

This Georgette Heyer book kept me wholly entertained and engrossed. Full marks to Georgette Heyer to have put in a book that kept a reader hooked onto it without much effort with a great deal of humour and intrigue and an ardent desire to know the next event in the story. I had kept postponing…

Sylvester by Georgette Heyer

    4.75* for Sylvester or The Wicked Uncle Other than the first few units, I loved the book! I am so great a Georgette Heyer fan that it really bugs me to write anything that may be even tending towards what may be deprecating. So it is with a heavy heart and a pang…
