Book: Hagwitch and the Cauldron of Colour

Author: Joanne Hutchinson

Format: Ebook

My Rating: 4.5/5

It’s great to read a book that makes you a lot more happy and keep you engaged throughout the wonderful journey. A book ‘Hagwitch and the Cauldron of Colour‘ by author ‘Joanne Hutchinson‘ is an interesting read.

A dragon came suddenly in town who picked up a lot of people to eat, everyone got panic, shivered and asked Hatrix for a help but he never listened to anyone as he has some other bad plans.

A witch named Hagwitch, with a one eye black and the other pond green looks little bit scary. But in real she is soft hearted and determined enough to rescue the townspeople all alone and won hearts of everyone with her kind nature.

Hagwitch defeated the selfish wizard Hatrix. I must say author have done commendable job in writing it down so beautifully. Perfect book for children.

Book Review: Anatomy Of A Self Indulgent Moongazer

Book: Anatomy of a Self Indulgent Moongazer

Author: Prateek Joshi

Format: Ebook

Pages: 74

My Rating: 4/5

Do you love reading English poetry? If yes, then this book is for you. These poems are not based on just one topic. Infact, they are based on multiple topics like love, silence, moon, night, dreams, dawn, etc. The poems are soothing and touches the heart.

The desolation
Of dream
tricks and taunts
throughout the sleep
the phantasms quit
when dawn arrives….

Above are the lines from this poetry book that has touched me most. Being a dreamer and a night over thinker, I could relate well to it. You can enjoy reading this book with a cup of tea in the evening.

The book is written well overall but the book presentation from inside and the way poems are organized could have been better. Cover is nice.

Book Review: Elephant by Natalie Rodriguez

Title: Elephant

Author: Natalie Rodriguez

Genre: YA Fiction

Format: Ebook

My Rating: 4.3/5

Elephant is a Young Adult Fiction written by the author Natalie Rodriguez. The story is about a woman Lucia Smith and her grandson Matthew Jimmy Smith. Matthew was also known as Matt or Matty. Matty was suffering from trauma which resulted in PTSD. There was so much void in his life and mind that needs to be filled by someone.

As I read the story further, I saw the impact of some tragic life incidents on Matty’s life as he ended up being admitted to a hospital. 

The ending paragraph of the first book will make you shiver and will make you think how this could happen. Reading this book was a rollercoaster ride for me. 

I really appreciate the storyline. If a movie could be made on this story, it would be even more amazing for the children. I would like to recommend this book to children, teenagers and adult who have went through so much in their life and is not yet healed from their pain. I am looking forward for the next book from the author.

I really love to read murder mysteries as they are thought provoking. Faith and the Beloved by Kochery C Shibu is one such murder mystery. 

Naithy married a guy Tony D’Souza after her husband’s death. Naithy’s daughter Cherokil played an important role in the story too.

Everything turned upside down when Cherokil ran away after murdering Tony
Read the story to unveil the suspense behind these murders. The story was gripping and it was an unputdownable book. 

The story narration by the author is very smooth. The language of the book is lucid. I really loved the cover page and the title of the book. One should definitely read this.

The Ultimate, Comprehensive and Complete Self Help Book

Title: THE ULTIMATE, COMPLETE, AND COMPREHENSIVE SELF-HELP BOOK ON HOW TO AVOID BEING CONNED BY SELF-HELP BOOKS AND ALSO WHY TO AVOID THEM

Author: Biju Vasudevan

My Rating: 4.5/5

Format: Kindle

I am an avid reader. I have read some books of the author Biju Vasudevan. I found all these books quite interesting with unique plot. This one is not a self help book. Infact, it is a satire at the expense of Self Help books. This book gives a humorous look into the world of ‘self-help’ and ‘self-help’ books. The author has described how the so-called self help books influences the readers at the beginning but later the readers regret wasting their time on such books. The book makes use of good sarcasm and has given many examples to prove the point well.

The narration is really smooth and well paced. I have read a book on such a topic for the first time. I really appreciate the author to bring this topic in front of the readers. It will help them to choose the books they read wisely. This is a light hearted read. I would suggest others to read this book at least once for sure.

Lying in State by Biju Vasudevan

Book: Lying In State
Author: Biju Vasudevan

My Rating: 4/5
Format: Kindle

My Review:

Lying in State is a nail biting story about the Two Islands – Idyllia and Megaloman. Idyllia is a gold rich island. It’s neighboring Island Megaloman is it’s rival as it wants to forcefully take the gold deposit of Idyllia. Megaloman is militarily powerful island. One French legionnaires Pierre got to know about the gold deposits from the logbooks of Uncle Dominique Giancarlo Dijon. It was destiny’s wish that he got his hands on this logbook. What happens next in the story was thrilling.

This is not just a mystery and suspense thriller. It has a tinge of philosophical thoughts also. I found this as a great book since it answers many philosophical questions regarding human existence. The twist and turn of the story will definitely blow your mind away. This is really a unique story that I would recommend to the adults.
