I consider these books very important in forming a perspective and wished I had them when I was young. Even though important topics or issues are addressed through these, they are immensely captivating and an easy read. Not boring even for a second.

1. Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi:Persepolis is a graphic autobiography by Marjane Satrapi that depicts her childhood up to her early adult years in Iran during and after the Islamic Revolution.’ It’s an easy but a very informative book.

The rules are simple: choose the most significant moments from your relationship – one for each hour in the day.

FEBRUARY WRAP UP|2019

I haven’t been able to upload this earlier due to my lack of motivation and social isolation. I have been working on my mental health and hope to be more present. Till then here’s the books I read in February. 🙂

MINI REVIEWS OF 2 KASIE WEST NOVELS|2 IN 1 BOOK REVIEW

Kasie West is an author I got introduced to in 2018. So far I’ve read 2 novel of hers and 1 short story. Here are the mini reviews of the 2 novels I’ve read of hers.

1. By Your Side: It was just a fine read for me. Though the characters were gorgeous and charming, the plot was unnecessarily complicated. I did not like how West tried to tackle the love triangle. What she tried, required a thorough exploration of emotions and that was not done. It was a fluffy YA and should have been kept at just that! I don’t like things done half way. Like if you want to do a chick lit, ace that. Don’t try to throw in some complications just for the sake of some brownie critic points! Specially if you can’t do justice to that!
