FIRST IMPRESSION:

Some books have covers. And some books have exquisite pieces of art covering the contents. Some books have simple, plain covers that might not give any indication of the great content inside. And then there are books that give the exact hint about the nature and style of story(ies) they might contain. These books are also complemented by simply beautiful covers and a nice title that would intrigue and interest the reader.

Favorite stories:
• Tina, by Diptee Raut
• The Murder, by Arunav Chaudhary
• Godliness, by Abhishek Mukherjee
• An Adoption, by Uttiya Roy

Points in favor:
+ All stories were interesting
+ Cover art, though it can be more vibrant
+ Editing was quite acceptable

Points against:
- Classification into genres doesn’t work as most stories don’t seem to fit the genre

A one-time read with some good stories.

Actual rating: 2.5 stars

Usually I am not impulsive when buying anything and more so from on-line portals. This time, however, I bought a book on-line, impulsively…. First Brush on Canvas by WritersMelon…And honestly I have not regretted buying it!
Outcome of a nationwide contest ‘Melonade’ with stories that were judged by Ashwin Sanghi, Preeti Shenoy and Arnab Ray, this collection of short stories is a first for authors of stories as well as for WritersMelon.
The book has stories divided into sections ‘Romance’, ‘Comedy’
