“I often painted fragments of things because it seemed to make my statement as well as or better than the whole could” - Georgia O'Keeffe.

A serial killer on the loose who chooses a particular day of the month to kill his victims; a strained father-son relationship, when the father returns home after being presumed dead; a girl who can go to any extent for her career and money; a woman openly acknowledging the presence of the many ‘other women’ in her life; a lady's dark past finally catches up with her... Life is an ongoing sequence of events meshed with everyday mundaneness so that it becomes difficult to isolate them.

‘Fragments’ captures the essence of those parts of our lives that we are not proud to show to others. It takes you through a range of emotions and leaves a big question mark on what is supposed…

Book Review: Bound by Hatred by M.V.Kasi

Stumped!
Was I stumped? Of course. But that particular emotion has been in abundance while I read the first book of the Bound series. Here it overflows. MV Kasi has not left any stone unturned. The book leaves you craving for more. The emotions are so raw and intense. For the period of the book, the reader is transported to the world of Singhams and Prajapathis... You will love to hate them; you will love to love them. You will love to be closer to the basic emotions of each and every human being in the book. If Abhay and Anika’s love was heart-wrenching, Dev and Sabitha’s passion will hit you from you-know-not-where. I am now bound to the Bound series. The hatred, its cause, and the culmination of it in absolute passion is a raw deal. Grab the book guys! Still raw and shaken, I and my doppelgangers sign off. Check on Goodreads, Amazon USA, Amazon India, Amazon UK, Amazon Australia, Amazon Canada. Blurb: Two enemies forced to be allies... Will their hatred thrive? Or will it transform into …

Book Review- The Last man she'd love by Summerita Rhyane

Ignite the passion!
A hopeless flirt and an ice maiden are set to ignite the passion for romance in you. This is the journey of two individuals unraveling each other’s real self in a make-believe relationship, and slowly finding out that they are meant to be ‘together’. It is certainly a delightful romance to look forward to. Lyna and Guy are caught in a pretend engagement and what they didn’t bargain for was the intense attraction for each other. I loved the intricate characters introduced along the story. The complex human mind in the different characters was a treat to read. This book is certainly my favorite pick from Ms. Rhayne. This one is a complete package of romance, drama and great chemistry between the protagonists. I and my doppelgangers had a blast as we read it. Grab it!

When best laid plans fall apart...
Lyna is all set to marry a movie mogul, when she finds his pregnant ex at her office, …

Book Review: Scorpio Superstar by Sundari Venkatraman

No intro required!
With Ms. Venkatraman’s books, you need not give any introduction; you just have to read it. Once you read any one of her books, you’d end up picking all. This romance also promises to attract the readers for a lifetime binge of the author’s books. A superstar of the south, Chandrakanth aka CK (or Chandru for a very special person) has almost the whole of Tamil Nadu and more than three-fourths of south India going gaga over him. In Tamil Nadu, people see him as a demi-God image. And there is his website handler, a normal girl with her business, living and leading a cozy life with her family. The journey towards the culmination of their stars begins the moment they meet. The Scorpio and Pisces couple is sure to keep you hooked to their journey towards fulfillment, love, and completeness. And if you are a regular reader of Ms. Venkatraman, you’d know the sure chemistry between the protagonists. An amazing chemistry and growing relationship is in store for you. Why is it…

Book Review: Destined by Rubina Ramesh

Why should a woman be made to choose? Why can’t she choose both, duty and Love?


When the burden of pain and the fear of losing your love is bearing upon you, just the presence of someone next to you is too valuable. Esha’s struggle to be strong as she stood by her father in his battle with cancer, and the Deja vu she experiences is heart wrenching. And trust me, I was so engrossed in her pain that I was shocked at my desire to hit Ayush. Out of the blue came a marriage proposal, a contractual marriage for six months, meant to benefit her father’s treatment and to remove the complications in Rohan’s life. What they both didn’t see coming (to the delight of my two doppelgangers—the one in white with a halo on top of her head and the one in black with red horns) was the intense attraction between them.
The brewing friendship, companionship, intimacy, and finally love was perfect. Not even a second of dullness. The book holds you to Esha and Rohan’s romance till the end. I and my two doppel…
