Daisy Jones and The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
"Apparently I read a different book than everyone else. Or maybe my brain just thinks it's funny to make me hate hyped books idk.

This didn't touch me whatsoever. I was bored and the story and some actions of the characters felt repetitive to the p..." Read more of this review »
Dani - Perspective of a Writer
Dani - Perspective of a Writer is 10% done with The Tiger at Midnight: I really like K, he’s a good one! As for E... I would really want to know who wants to keep the two countries at war, enough to frame her and the rebels...
Dark of the West by Joanna Hathaway
"I think it was the comp to The Winner’s Curse that drew me to Dark of the West (which is funny because I still haven’t read that series) but I dove into this book with not many expectations. The only one I remember having was that Dark of the West..." Read more of this review »
Sahitya and 11 other people liked Ashish Iyer's review of The Da Vinci Code:
The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown
"Dan Brown always writes an interesting story. His lore, based in fact, is believable. He writes adventure and suspense so well, I'm always drawn into the story and hate to put it down.
Start in the Louvre and then travel to seek the Grail. This is..." Read more of this review »

the greatest thief of all was the Order of Babel, for they stole more than just objects … They stole histories, swallowed cultures whole, smuggled evidence of illustrious antiquity onto large ships and spirited them into indifferent lands.
I love museums. My older cousin (who is like a brother to me) is a curator in a prestigious museum and often sent our family bits of news and images of pieces they were acquiring…the more images I saw and the more I heard him talk about what drew him to certain pieces, the more I started thinking about a) how objects get into museums and b) who owns the past?

Probably more of a 4.5.

This is another series which I have enjoyed a lot but never written reviews for before. The previous installment Deke is a particular favorite and I have been waiting for Talon and Miller’s story since they were introduced in T

I had heard a lot about Octavia Butler and I knew how much of a pioneer she is in the field of fantasy/sci-fi for black authors. But I’m also not much into reading classics and never thought I would be diving into her work. But, we chose Kindred as t ...more

“I am grateful you're alive", he said. "I am grateful that you're beside me. I am grateful that you're eating."
She rested her head on his shoulder.
"You're better that waffles, Matthias Helvar."
A small smile curled the Fjerdan's lips.

Leigh Bardugo
“I would have come for you. And if I couldn't walk, I'd crawl to you, and no matter how broken we were, we'd fight our way out together-knives drawn, pistols blazing. Because that's what we do. We never stop fighting.”
Leigh Bardugo, Crooked Kingdom

Fredrik Backman
“She laughed and laughed and laughed until the vowels were rolling across the walls and floors, as if they meant to do away with the laws of time and space.”
Fredrik Backman, A Man Called Ove
