If somebody had told you that you were born under mysterious circumstances, that you appeared on Earth as a baby and nobody knew how you were born – grown by aliens, popped into existence by an invisible gravity force, or assembled in some kind of DNA-factory – wouldn’t you find it absolutely frightening? Knowing that you aren’t you, losing your identity and mind, feeling that it isn’t normal for you to be here, because you are part of something else, but still the part of the Universe.

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.

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!
