DOCTOR STALKER SPY
by
Usha Narayanan


BLURB Kamna is ​a ​psychiatrist in Chennai. Her colleague Purush is rich, handsome and madly in love with her. ​When ​a dashing stranger, Neel, enters her life, she is drawn to him like a magnet. ​But then​, an intruder crashes into her home and threatens her life. Can Kamna find love amid such danger?
MY REVIEW
Honestly, this book goes on to prove that genre-fixation is hugely overrated.  Having read a couple of mythological books from her, I found it hard to believe that Ms Narayan would ever write a Y.A. rom-com. Well, she did, and how well at that !?  Doctor, Stalker, Spy is one of the best and seemingly real romances I've read in a long while. The author has studied her subjects to a deep extent, which is evident in all her character portrayals. The dilemmas and challenges a 20-something faces, all seems so real and relatable.  This one is undoubtedly, yet another master stroke by Ms. Narayanan!!

'Prem Purana' by Usha Narayanan ~ BookBlitz

Print Length: 272 pages Publisher: Penguin Random House India  Publication Date: September 18, 2017 Language: English Genre: Romance 


No one is untouched by love, not even devas and asuras, kings and nymphs. And when they face life’s unexpected tribulations, their love also undergoes trials. Read how Ganesha took myriad forms to please Riddhi, Siddhi and Buddhi, how Ravana shared an unbreakable bond with his true love, Mandodari and how Nala and Damayanti’s relationship was tested till almost nothing remained.

Tormented by passion, wracked by betrayal, torn by the agony of separation, love in its many splendored forms is the origin of these incredibly endearing stories of Prem Purana.

It would be great if you can add this book to your TBR

'Fragments' by Janaki Nagaraj ~ Book Blitz

Print Length: 76 pages Publication Date: July 31, 2017 Sold by: Amazon Digital Services LLC Language: English Available on Kindle Unlimited  Genre: Fiction, Anthology 


“I often painted fragments of things because it seemed to make my statement as well as or better than the whole could” - Georgia O'Keeffe.

A serial killer on the loose who chooses a particular day of the month to kill his victims; a strained father-son relationship, when the father returns home after being presumed dead; a girl who can go to any extent for her career and money; a woman openly acknowledging the presence of the many ‘other women’ in her life; a lady's dark past finally catches up with her... Life is an ongoing sequence of events meshed with everyday mundaneness so that it becomes difficult to isolate them.

‘Fragments’ captures the essence of those parts of our lives that we are not proud to show to others. It takes you through a range of emotions and leaves a big question mark on what is supposed…

'Avishi' by Saiswaroopa Iyer ~ Review

AVISHI by Saiswaroopa Iyer


Blurb
Long before the times of Draupadi and Sita Immortalised in the hymns of the Rig Veda But largely forgotten to the memory of India Is the Warrior Queen with an iron leg, Vishpala
Brought up in the pristine forest school of Naimisha, Avishi reaches the republic of Ashtagani in search of her destiny. When Khela, the oppressive King of the neighbouring Vrishabhavati begins to overwhelm and invade Ashtagani, Avishi rises to protect her settlement. But peril pursues her everywhere.
Separated from her love, her settlement broken, with a brutal injury needing amputation of her leg, can Avishi overcome Khela?

If stories about ancient India, especially those with strong women characters interest you, then Avishi is a story you must read!

MY REVIEW
Being a multi-genre writer and reader has its own set of advantages. One of them being, you're never short of topics.
Mythology and ancient Indian history are two of my current loves. It was the primary reason, why I immediate…
