Book Review: 7 Secrets of Shiva, by Devdutt Pattanaik

Mythology is a very interesting genre, and when narrated with that interest, makes for wonderful reading. Many authors try to write in this genre; some succeed, others do not. I quite enjoyed a few of Devdutt’s earlier books, so picking this book wasn’t that difficult a choice.

Book Review: Krishna’s Secret, by Devdutt Pattanaik

Devdutt Pattanaik’s writing is always interesting. His views on Indian mythology are interesting, and have loved quite a few of his books. This one is a short read, a part of a bigger book that I hope to read sometime in 2018.

Book Review: Ganesha’s Secret, by Devdutt Pattanaik

I love reading about Indian mythology. I’ve heard quite a lot from it from my grandparents while growing up. I admire Devdutt Pattanaik’s writing when it comes to that genre, so when I found this book on Kindle Unlimited, I borrowed it without a second thought.

Book Review: It’s All In The Planets, by Preeti Shenoy

There are a few books that can be finished very quickly. Light reads that just flows easily and brings a smile. I’ve found Preeti Shenoy’s writing to be such. It’s one of the reasons her fans like her writing too, I feel. I liked the book because of the cover art too. It looked appealing.

Book Review: Chronicler of the Undead, by Mainak Dhar

There are few books that seem to mix two genres, or traverse the fine line between the two. I don’t mind that, as long as they do justice to both. I’ve read romantic thrillers, comical murder mysteries etc. The blurb of this book promised a mix of horror and thriller, while throwing in an aspect that isn’t explored in IWE (or at least, not to my knowledge) — the undead or zombies. It also helped that I had heard about the author from friends as a writer who was established in the genre of horror.

Book Review: The Bestseller She Wrote, by Ravi Subramanian

Sometimes, what makes me pick up a book is familiarity, even more than the blurb or cover. It was the same with this book. I had read and loved the book The Bankster by the author, and quite liked the writing style as well. It was what made me ignore the big “Soon to be a Motion Picture” tagline on the cover page, which felt like promoting the still unreleased movie and not the book, and take the book for reading hoping it wouldn’t be a script.
