Aurora Burning by Jay Kristoff, Amy Kaufman

What I did not expect was science fiction revolving around space and the universe to delve so deep into philosophy, feelings and those nuances that makes humans…well, human.

1Q84 – Murakami

Like most of Murakami’s works, this one too is filled with magic! Crows that try to communicate, sex in dreams that cause real pregnancy, and two moons!

Highfire – By Eoin Colfer

I waited for this book with such excitement and bought the e book because I had literally no patience to wait for even a day for this to get delivered. A dragon alive in Louisiana who loves Vodka Martinis and Netflix? HELL YEAH!

Malice – By Pintip Dunn

Amidst the ongoing pandemic, this book can trigger a lot of anxiety for those who may be sensitive at this stage.
The book is not as scary as one would expect. It doesn’t just speak of a global pandemic with no cure, but also how a broken human, and flawed love is instrumental in wiping humanity itself out.

The Second Librarian

I’m Priyanka, and I love reading. Books have rescued me from some of the toughest times in my life, and made my good times even better. I’m a journalist who loves to socialise, but mostly, I find myself at home between the pages of a book. I find myself belonging to that fragrance that lies…

The Forty Rules of Love by Elif Shafak

This book has been so talked about, I couldn’t wait to read it. Took me not more than some 4 days to finish this because, well, college wouldn’t allow me to binge. Ugh! This is not…

Aurora Rising – Amy Kaufman, Jay Kristoff

A book that made me not want to leave my seat until the end of the story. A plot that tarts with a bang (pun intended), keeping you on the edge right from the beginning.

Neverwhere – Neil Gaiman

Neil is pure genius. Back in school, in art class, we would draw with a pencil, outline it with a black sketchpen, and then colour it. Neil does the same. He outlines reality with fiction, with borders of a surreal world that comes to life as you move ahead looking at this piece of art.

The Wicked Deep

The best one I read in January that left me with a book hangover for a little longer than expected – The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw
