Retail in India has grown leaps and bounds over the last decade and Kishore Biyani, “The King of India Retail” is the reason for these changes. Even though most of us prefer D-mart over Big Bazaar these days, we can’t take away the fact that many supermarkets around us including Chennai’s own Saravana stores which inspired the idea for Big Bazaar now have many qualities that Big Bazaar incorporated into their stores.
Set in a 100-year-old cafe, Before the Coffee gets Cold not only serves coffee but also allows people to travel back in time. However, there are a lot of conditions that come with time travel, one of which is that “whatever happens in the past won’t change the present.”
Note: I received a free copy of this e-book through Booktasters in return for an honest review. It is not often we come across […]
In a time and age where we have so many gurus for so many things, often than not the things those Gurus prescribe might not make much practical sense but few do take time and effort to acknowledge their past mistakes, learn from them and share them to the world not to commit the same mistakes they did. One such person is Ankur Warikoo, a successful Entrepreneur and Content Creator who has made so much impact on many people in their 20s and 30’s, especially his videos on Personal Finance have opened my eyes to a greater extent. When I got to know that his book is going to be out, I was excited to read it and as usual, I Pre-ordered and put it on my shelf for months, only for me to pick it up so late.
The Game with no Name is the Second book in the Jitters Series by L.G. Cunningham. This book isn’t the follow-up to the first one but both these books share a common theme “Children’s Horror” more along the lines of Goosebumps if I must add (Goosebumps is the only Horror Series I read as a child, not the entire collection but a couple of them) and to safely say the books are really engaging even for an adult like me.
Goosebumps is one of the earliest Horror books I read as a Kid. Even though my English comprehension was poor back then, I somehow managed to grasp what the story was and how I ended up in many sleepless nights—reading this novel kind of reminded me of those early days. I’m pretty sure the intended audiences for this book will feel scary.
Children’s books are fascinating and the respect I have for the authors who write them is humongous. The Authors should become children, go into their world, and speak their language, it is one of the toughest tasks to Write for Children. Along those lines, I started reading Children’s literature recently to identify books that I can read for my 3 years old or entice him to get into reading.
Fantasy Novels have their own way of indulging us in their worlds but it lies in the hands of the Authors who write them. Often, the authors struggle with World-building, either they are too descriptive or too vague for the readers to understand where the story is going and what to expect out of the novel. (This is from my limited reading of Fantasy novels both good and bad). Realm of Kings: Flaming Deception by Dustin Fisher is the first in the series of books and I’m thankful to Booktasters for providing me an opportunity to read this Indie book.
Thrillers are one of those fascinating Genres which always keep you hooked, be it a Murder mystery or others. I haven’t had read much of YA Thrillers, most importantly YA thriller books with Supernatural elements attached to them. So, when I came across this book on Booktasters, I immediately grabbed to read it.
Science Fiction is one of the Genres with which I’m always in awe. Although I haven’t read much of Sci-Fi books I kinda know the pattern of stories and the world they build. The Sci-fi stories are mostly set up in the future, they are dystopian mostly, one power control freak who is either a human or an AI, someone is raised to the occasion which questions or threatens the authority. These are mostly how Sci-fi books are designed but What I really love about these is the way the authors somehow foresee the future, they predict technologies that are fascinating.
