Book Review of UNNS The Captivation

UNNS The Captivation by Sapan Saxena is a romantic thriller. This book is multi layered and will surprise you at every moment. The story surely keeps you hooked and I completed it in just 2 hours. Finally, I got a lengthy book of around 244 pages.

815Zlu71O4L

The cover of the book is fantastic as it has a white background, a blue royal rose which plays a majot role in the story ad also two people walking together under an umbrella.

The title makes the reader totally clueless but as we progress we get to know the meaning of it. UNNS is a Urdu word which is a stage in love. This stage signifies the seven stages according to a theory in Urdu which you will get to know in the book.

The plot is crisp and neatly woven. The story revolves around the lives of Atharva and Meher who are sweethearts from their adolescence, get separated and meet again with some reason. Life takes twist and turns in their lives.

The setting plays a significant role and can even be used as locations for the movies. The first part is played in India, then it shifts to Germany and then to a town in AMerica.

The story moves slowly as it has time gap and leaps of 15 years. The lovers meet and get separated. Everytime with a new purpose. This reminds of a concept where fate is the destiny. They were destined to meet hence destiny played the role. Though it sounds like character is the destiny but its the other way out.

Sapan has beautifully characterised his characters. Meher seems one of the most complex characters whose actions and thoughts are difficult to understand. Even at times we are at a doubt like whether loves Atharva or not. She is caught in her own demons.

Whereas Atharva is a strong character but comes out to be weak only in love. Love makes us weak and strong at the same time.

The style of writing is simple yet clear. Some historical facts and stories adds flavour to it and surely, doesnt bore the readers. Furthermore, the pace is steady. There were some facts which I didnt like. The start could have been better, plus the middle was totally predictable. Somwhere I could feel I was watching a movie. Yes, I could connect to the story and feel the emotions.

Spotlight of Rocking Fate by Erin Trejo

 

 

Available BannerRocking Fate by Erin Trejo

Amazon: http://amzn.to/2lDftIY

My life was always a mess. I’ve been alone since I was young. Meeting Ghost changed all that for me. Hells Fire gave me a place to call home. My actions from the past have followed me though.

Things get complicated when I meet Aria. I wasn’t looking for more than a weekend of hot sex.

I got a lot more than that though. When I find out who her father is, my life is thrown in another direction. Being forced to choose between what is right and what I’m forced into becomes my new struggle. Forced between a life I never wanted and one I’m not sure of will be my breaking point.

Excerpt

 

“I see you ladies decided try it out with the bad boys, huh?” I hold a beer out to each of them. They take it.

“We figured that we would come out and see if you boys can handle us.” She’s bold, I’ll give her that.

“You never told me your name.” I grin at the girl with the mouth while she licks her lips.

“I’m, Dana. That’s Crystal, and…” I don’t let her finish. I finish for her.

“Aria.” Her eyes snap to mine. She looks a little surprised that I remember.

I wave Ghost and Devil over. I think we need to break this little party up a little.

Devil looks at the girls with a giant ass grin.

“What’s up, Roc?”

“Damn–fuck me ladies.” They all blush a pretty shade of pink when they look at Devil. You have to picture him though. Devil is a good-looking guy, but he is covered in tattoos and piercings. He must look exactly like what he’s called to these girls.

“These are my boys, Devil, and Ghost.” I see the way Devil is eyeing Aria. Too bad, I already laid claim to that one.

Moving past the girls as they introduce themselves, I throw my arm around Aria’s shoulders.

I lean in closely, nipping her earlobe.

“Glad you came back.” The way her body responds to me makes me want to haul her ass back to my room.

Ghost grins at me; that all knowing look on his face.

“What brings you girls out here? You don’t seem like the typical type that would be here.” Devil crosses his arms over his chest.

He isn’t a big man but he is intimidating. The girls swallow hard, looking around at each other.

“Vacation.” Dana speaks up, but she looks a little more nervous now.

Book Review of In the Flickering of an Eye

In the Flickering of an Eye by Neelam Saxena Chandra is a romantic fiction. This book is not like those lovey dovey romance. It highlights the spiritual concept of love, yes the ones we see in old generations. This type of love is always there and it never gets outdated. The story is set at a time when love was considered as a sin.

51XaTaw-PiL

Sneek Peek: Twenty five years worth of ‘what ifs’ and ‘if onlys’ have haunted and tortured Vinay. He cannot help but go back in time again and again to that one moment that changed his life forever. A chance encounter with a person from his past, and a journey through the majestic hills of Kalimpong lead him to some of his answers, in the form of an elusive woman, who bears a striking resemblance to the woman he loved and lost. Will he finally get his happily-ever-after? Or will his story, tarnished when he was nineteen by the gotra system, forever be punctuated with too many fullstops? Read on to find out more.

My Review:

The story is set in Dhanoi Village where love is considered as a crime and ghotra system seems to be prevalent there. Vinay and Manju are the protagonists whose love story seems to be the toughest. Life takes a turn when these two lovers get separated by fate. Things take a new way when they again meet after twenty years. In this book, Neelam has talked about ghotra system, illiteracy of the village people, stream of consciousness technique, fate, chance and separation of lovers.  The cover is eye catching where the title has uniqueness in it. The style is simple, lucid and easy to understand with. Neelam has beautifully described the surroundings in a novel. When the train is moving, one can feel travelling in it. The situations sound realistic and at times you feel you are watching a movie.

Book Review of Bag it All

Bag It All by Nina Lekhi and Suman Chhabria is an autobiographical book that has all the flavours of spiritualism, motivation, entrepreneurship.

DSCN2280.JPG

Sneek Peak:

As told to Suman Chhabria Addepalli with a foreword by Rashmi Bansal – A Bestselling author. The inspirational story of an entrepreneur who built a 100-crore company with the power of intent and love . Indra Nooyi said, “Women can’t have it all!” It’s either career or family. I disagree. As I see it, we can have it all – a successful company, a loving family and the opportunity to follow our passion. When I was a teenager, I started a small ghar-ka-business selling trendy handbags. Today, Baggit is a 100-crore company. Along the way, I became a wife and a mom, and navigated the various twists and turns in my personal life. I could do it all because of my loving, supportive family and my guru, who have made me a better person and a better entrepreneur. This is the story of how a C-minus student – a failure in college – became an A-plus entrepreneur. If I can do it, so can you. My secrets are in these pages.

Review:

IMG-20170319-WA0010

Starting from the first look of the book, I could make out that this book will surely reach my heart. Yes, it did. The cover of the book is fantastic as it has the picture of the owner, Nina Lekhi, of Baggit Brand. Those who are unaware of this Baggit then I would like to tell you that Baggit is a brand name that deals with handmade bags. It has a history of many years and now the turnover has reached upto 100 crores. This book is a story of young Nina who went through thick and thin to make a small shop into such a big brand. Behind all this, lies the support of family members, friends and relatives.Even the contribution of yoga and Guru ji brought Nina’s life on a track.

The book is divided into 3 parts, it has a narration of Nina’s life and then the next part has her struggles along with it, are the lessons she learnt from those struggles and experiences. Honestly speaking, when I started reading this book, I was in my low modes. But after reading it, my mind was fresh and I was ready to take up the challenges. Furthermore, the way the author has used the remarks made by her dear and near ones makes it impeccable.

The book is written in a simple yet lucid way. It is easy to understand and comprehend. Some of the pictures used in the book makes it look beautiful. This book is not an autobiography but a journey of Nina which we can go through by reading this book.

Interview with Vandana Shanker

Hello Lovelies,

I am back with an interview session. Today we have Vandana Shanker, who is the author of 1857 Dust of Ages.

4a0ec-banner

When did writing happened to you?

It is difficult to put down a specific moment or a time period that writing happened to me. I wrote poems and short stories in schools but being a writer was never a serious goal. It was during the time I was pursuing my research in literature, that I became familiar with this very interesting and dynamic field of fan writing and I dabbled there. From there on, it became a part of leisure activities. But 1857 Dust of Ages was the first attempt at serious writing, and it took nearly a year and half of disciplined writing to complete the book. So serious writing is fairly recent.

 
What made you choose Historical topic?

As I was pursuing my research at IIT Delhi, a friend of mine was writing a thesis on 1857 novels. She had lots of British novelists in her list and not a single India. It was the first time we became aware this gap. Not many Indian fiction writers of have explored the 1857. As we read, I became more fascinated and wanted to write a story from an Indian perspective, especially an Indian warrior woman’s perspectives because the first stories I heard of 1857 were of women like Lakshmi Bai, Hazrat Mahal and it is very different from the Indian woman I found in British literature.

f22aa-1857

 

What type of genres you generally like and why?

Of course, the historical. A book well-grounded in history is the most fascinating read for me. Then come the spy thrillers, romances and mysteries. Some years ago, I was completely obsessed by fantasy fiction, but a PhD in the genre cured me of that.

 

How was your experience with your publishers?

2ac41-vandanashanker

That’s a trick question, isn’t it?J. The experience has been mixed. My earlier book which was a very formulaic romance found a publisher and was published in a jiffy. It was an interesting experience. But for Dust of Ages, I did not want to get into compromising on things that traditional publishing asks of you – the length, insertion and deletion of scenes and endless waiting etc. So I decided to keep it free of such demands and self-publishing gave me that freedom. So yes, the experience with the publishers has been a mixed. But I would say we are lucky that today we have the option of going indie.

When can we expect your other works?

Second and third instalments of Dust of Ages are already out on Amazon. Last two parts release in March. Once that is done, perhaps another historical next year.

 

Kurta is a never fading trend!

Hello beautiful people,

I am back with yet another product review. I bought an amazing kurta from amazon . Mostly, I shop only for books on amazon but this time while scrolling, I cam across this kurta by Fashion Age and I just can’t stop looking at it. Though its winter season yet I decided to buy it.

About the Product

DSCN2144

This is black and multi coloured woman’s kurta by Fashion Age. The fibre used is polyester which is strong and can be used in wet and damp environments. Kurta has a round neckline which sounds common but surely suits the personality. It is an amazing piece with classic appeal which has class, style and trend along with unique design.

This kurta can be worn in formal as well as casual wear. The black kurta for women is a beautiful blend of Indian and modern designs.

Anyone can wear this kurta starting from girls to women. It is available in all sizes starting from small to extra large.

I wore this kurta for a college function and got mind blowing comments from my near and dear ones. I paired the kurta with a black sleak legging. I left my jet black hair open and wore some long danglings along with minimum makeup which made me look elegant. I also wore a ring to make it a perfect look.

Price

Originally the cost is 999 INR but I got this kurta from a sale which costed me 299INR. But now it is 349 INR. So, it is a reasonable price for everyone and you can grab this product.

Seller

As mentioned before, the seller is Fashion Age. They are easy to interact with. The way they make you feel comfortable is fantastic. Even the reviewers are happy with their products and services. I just had a small problem with packaging thing as the bag they used was too huge but I guess thats all the fault of packaging department, else they are just perfect.

My Rating: 4.5/5
