Ballad of the Whiskey Robber by Julian Rubinstein
"This was an absolutely extraordinary story, totally unbelievable yet true. To be honest, I had no clue about Attila Ambrus, never read or heard about him and had no intention of reading his life story. This book came up in a blog as a must read be..." Read more of this review »
The 7½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton
"3.5 stars
This is a book that will keep you compulsively glued to itself until you've gotten to the end and have finally finally unravelled the multi-twisty-mangled murder mystery.

I am blown away by the originality of the premise and really, up to..." Read more of this review »
A Foreigner Carrying in the Crook of His Arm a Tiny Bomb by Amitava Kumar
"With 56 ratings and just 9 reviews, maybe there's a reason I couldn't get through this book. It's the title and the subject matter that caught my interest, and it started off pretty well too - but eventually my interest petered. I don't even remem..." Read more of this review »
Empress Orchid by Anchee Min
"Gave up on 44% . This book needed a lot of patience as it moves very slowly and is extremely dense and detailed. Though intriguing, it progressed too slowly to stay interested. Has been sitting on my shelf, half read, for too long and I just didn'..." Read more of this review »

I've heard a fair bit about Afghanistan and wasn't sure how this book was written. A journalist, he wasn't there but written in an 'after action' style. Bishop has access to the guys inside who were and lets them do their bit. Its not glamourous, its ...more

This is one of the best book i have read and all credit to the author- Fredrik Backman who is just 37 years old. It is amazing to see him understand and write about people so well. Old people, kids, girls, men, women---it doesn't matter. He seems to ...more

Super conclusion to an epic series. So much happens in this book that it felt like it could have been made into two separate books :-) This guy writes an addictive story and brings such fascinating historical characters to life. Now i definitely know ...more

J.K. Rowling
“We do not need magic to transform our world. We carry all the power we need inside ourselves already.”
J.K. Rowling

John Green
“There will come a time when all of us are dead. All of us. There will come a time when there are no human beings remaining to remember that anyone ever existed or that our species ever did anything. There will be no one left to remember Aristotle or Cleopatra, let alone you. Everything that we did and built and wrote and thought and discovered will be forgotten and all of this will have been for naught. Maybe that time is coming soon and maybe it is millions of years away, but even if we survive the collapse of our sun, we will not survive forever. There was time before organisms experienced consciousness, and there will be time after. And if the inevitability of human oblivion worries you, I encourage you to ignore it. God knows that’s what everyone else does.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

“‎Though nobody can go back and make a new beginning... Anyone can start over and make a new ending.”
Chico Xavier

John Green
“The world is not a wish-granting factory.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

Niccolò Machiavelli
“This raises the question whether it is better to be loved than feared, or the contrary. My reply is that I would like to be both but as it is difficult to combine love and fear, if one has to choose between them it is far safer to be feared than loved”
Machiavelli(1532), The Prince
