Book Review: Seven Must Read Nature Stories, by Ruskin Bond

I mentioned in one of my earlier posts about some eBooks being there now which you can read in ten or fifteen minutes at most. It was nice to see a couple of books from Ruskin Bond in that list too. I have always admired the writing of Ruskin Bond. It’s simple writing that anyone can follow and enjoy reading.

Book Review: Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies

The first of three Pottermore Presents books that were released last year, this book shares tales of heroism at Hogwarts, one of my favorite places to visit through my imagination! I don’t need a reason to read (er… reread) the Harry Potter series, and these three books add to that nicely.

Book Review: Short Stories from Hogwarts of Power, Politics and Pesky Poltergeists, by JK Rowling

I borrowed the same quickly and read it.

I find children’s fiction to be a genre that I turn to when in need of comfort reads. It brings that sense of innocence, the joy of childhood back. One of my best friends read this book recently and I found it on Kindle Unlimited when I checked. I borrowed it immediately and started reading.

(Book Review) Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide, by JK Rowling

It’s always a delight to go back to a beloved series. My favorite fantasy series of all time, perhaps, is the magical world of Harry Potter. Quite recently, I chanced upon three books written by the author on Pottermore, and without further ado, bought it. This book, the third in that series, brings a little more knowledge about that world.
