“I was there when nothing was, I am here when nothing is, and I will be present in all years to come.”

There’s an eerie deafening silence in the royal palace of Rudraputra, scorned by multiple layers of armed guards. Someone knows something, something that no one is supposed to find out. Going back in the gallows of time, what if Eklavya was not the chosen one at Gurukul? Is there an alternative to the past?

“Am I ready? I don’t want to lose! Victory is the only option! I will snatch it if I must. Either I’ll win, or I’ll do what no one would have imagined in their wildest dreams. Yes, I’ll change the rules about how this game can be played. But is that enough? Physical superiority is not all I long, I want to rule people’s mind, I need to know before it comes to me…”

Is it revenge he is looking for? Vengeance is a parasite. It lurks onto you, and it grows, feeds on your body, your soul, and ultimately it becomes you!

Long Live the Sullied marks a deeper dive into the epic story, debunking mysteries of God of the Sullied that left you astonished.

Writing : 3.5/5
OVERALL RATING : 3.5/5

“No one knows how to get anywhere. Google is the only one who knows anything anymore. My brain is irrelevant.”

Memento gets a Millennial makeover by debut author Sam Tschida in this smart and edgy comedy about a Kardashians-obsessed woman who wakes up in an LA hospital with amnesia, a torn party dress, and a broken iPhone and must work backward, using her Instagram account, to piece together her identity, only to discover that her life is a perfect lie.

When Mia wakes up in a Long Beach hospital with a head wound, she knows everything there is to know about the Kardashian-Jenner family but almost nothing about herself. The only items in her possession are her torn party dress–which immediately begs the question, what kind of girl parties on a Tuesday night?–a tube of Chanel lipstick, and an iPhone with a shattered screen. She might not remember where she lives but she can use her Instagram account to work backward to piece together the basic facts of her identity. Easy enough, right?

Instagram tells her that she lives in a Millennial-pink duplex that would make Kylie Jenner jealous. But when she arrives, she discovers a cute housesitter named Max who tells her the house actually belongs to JP, a French billionaire–and he has no idea how she’s connected to him. After some sleuthing, she discovers she’s the owner of a high-end matchmaking service. Could JP be one of her investors?

As Mia works backward through her Instagram to figure out who she really is–and find anyone who knows anything about her–she discovers an ugly truth buried within her perfect social media image. Is it too late to undo her lies online and become an IRL good person?

BOOK REVIEW:Christmas Shopaholic (Shopaholic #9) by Sophie Kinsella

Plot : 5/5
Characters : 5/5
Writing : 4/5
OVERALL RATING : 5/5

Genre : Contemporary, Romance, Humor, Comedy

Age Recommended: 13 yrs and up

“Whatever the Grinch can steal, it’s not Christmas.”

Becky Brandon (née Bloomwood) adores Christmas. It’s always the same – Mum and Dad hosting, carols playing, Mum pretending she made the Christmas pudding, and the next-door neighbors coming round for sherry in their terrible festive jumpers.

And now it’s even easier with online bargain-shopping sites – if you spend enough you even get free delivery. Sorted!

But this year looks set to be different. Unable to resist the draw of craft beer and smashed avocado, Becky’s parents are moving to ultra-trendy Shoreditch and have asked Becky if she’ll host Christmas this year. What could possibly go wrong?

With sister Jess demanding a vegan turkey, husband Luke determined that he just wants aftershave again, and little Minnie insisting on a very specific picnic hamper – surely Becky can manage all this, as well as the surprise appearance of an old boyfriend and his pushy new girlfriend, whose motives are far from clear . . .

Will chaos ensue, or will Becky manage to bring comfort and joy to Christmas?

“Be someone who makes a real positive difference, even if it costs something great.”

The Kingdom of Regostia is protected by a powerful group known as the Hooded. Whether it’s reconnaissance, strategy, or combat, the Hooded have trained to be able to tackle every issue that the kingdom faces. But what they’re most known for is their use of morar, an energy that can be shaped to allow the Hooded to complete superhuman feats.

Living in the capital, Damon Red has always lived in his brother Ander’s shadow. Ander is an internationally known, twice decorated war hero and the strongest Hooded in the kingdom. Damon struggles to compete in minor league tournaments and can barely get the girl of his dreams to notice him. He wants nothing to do with the Hooded because he knows he can never live up to his brother.

But, when Ander tries to kill the king in the dead of night, the shadow Damon has lived in suddenly changes. He’s no longer the younger brother of the greatest man in the kingdom; he’s the brother of a traitor. And when no one can produce Ander’s motive, Damon must also come to terms with the fact that his brother was not the man he thought he was.
